This workshop is timed to allow for us to visit Reculver at an ideal time of day, tide and year for sunset. We will explore the area from both sides of the beach and enjoy the very different viewpoints as the light progresses towards sunset. We will also look at our camera settings and think about how these affct our photography.
Our start time is 17.00 through to sunset at circa 20.00. We will meet in the public car park at the Reculver Towers.
This is a small group course allowing you to spend time with an experienced and award winning landscape photographer and author of the forthcoming book ‘Photographing Kent’, published by fotovue.
You can ask questions, learn about your camera and your own creative interpretation of a scene in a fun and friendly group.
For more advanced photogrpahers, we will specifically seek out opportunities for long exposures, cloudscapes and less obvious compositions and subject matter.
Please ensure you read the FAQ’s on what to bring etc and let me know if you have any queries.
Reculver Towers, Kent Photography Workshop FAQs
Getting to Reculver
Reculver is on the north Kent coast and easily acessible from the M2/A299 motorway. There is also a pay and display car park adjacent to the towers. The post code to get there is: CT6 6SU, or just put 'Reculver' into your sat nav.
How fit do I need to be for Northern Greece?
Although there are a few roadside locations in the area, many of the best locations involve a fair amount of walking, some of which is very steep. By comparison, we would say it is rouughly equivalent to the English Lakes District. There will always be options to sit out any of the more off the beaten track locations but some of the most spectacular views do involve some less straight forward terrain, with some steep ascents and descents albeit they're not particularly long walks. If in doubt, please ask us for more detail.
If it’s Fully booked what can I do?
Please get in touch via email or telephone and we can put you on the reserve list. If a place becomes available we'll let you know.
What kit & caboodle should I bring?
A camera, tripod and a selection of lenses - ideally covering ultra wide angle to telephoto. Tripods are essential-let me know if you dont own one. Also spare batteries and memory cards.
If you dont have any filters (polariser, ND Grads, Stopper Filters etc) and want to try them and learn how to use them, we have kits you can borrow. Just tell us in advannce.
Also, bring good walking boots and clothing for any kind of weather and wellies are strongly recommended for UK workshops. Comfortable backpack and waterproofs for you and your gear. It can be chilly in the evening so warm clothes are recommended.
Water bottle will be handy as at times we will be out in the open but we are never far from a cafe, pub and/or public toilet.
What level of photographer does this workshop suit?
Photographers of any level are welcome - whether a beginner or with many years experience. We are exploring an area looking to create images regardless of your level of expeerience I can help as muchh as you need. With a small group of only eight participants there will be more than enough opportunity to cover everything from the basic skills of landscape photography (if required) to more advanced, creative techniques.
