JMW Turner lived in Kent and famously remarked that it ‘had the loveliest skies in all of Europe.’ With Turner’s beautiful words (and work) in mind, we think it also makes for a perfect place for landscape photography.
The workshop will be spent exploring the fascinating land and seascapes that define this unique area. From shipwrecks and abandoned industry on the River Medway to beautiful Beech forests, from soaring white chalk cliffs to sandy beaches and from Medieval castles to tidal sea pools.
Very few places can offer such variety and here we can create our own, new and original work away from the ‘bucket list’ locations found in some parts of the UK.
We will base ourselves in the village of Boughton under Blean where we can enjoy comfortable, en suite, accommodation in a local Inn. From here, we are ideally placed to reach the various corners of the County in search of our photographs.
This workshop is appropriate to anyone comfortable with short walks to each location from our parking places.
We will look to take advantage of the creative opportunities from dawn to dusk. The general format of our day is to photograph at dawn, then enjoy a late breakfast at our Inn before heading out for the day, returning for supper in the evening. We will of course stop for refreshments during the day.
Kit & Caboodle:
- Wellies are highly recommended.
- Waterproof trousers and coats are advisable anywhere by the sea.
- A thermos flask for tea if you feel more regular tea/coffee is required!
- Snacks; a few biscuits and/or fruit in your bag is handy for nourishment throughout the day.
