Workshop Schedule

We will meet at Bristol Airport, in the UK, on the morning of the 25th of April. From there, we will head straight to our wonderful accommodation where we will stay for the duration of the adventure.

From arrival to the day of departure, we will chase the light of sunrises and sunsets in front of the most beautiful locations of Cornwall, including Land’s End, Godrevy Lighthouse, Kynance Cove, Bedruthan Steps, Trevose Head, and many, many more..

The small group size will allow you to discuss during your shooting with the teachers at every moment to maximize the learning experience. Between sunrise and sunset, theory, post-production and relax in great company!

Every day we’ll define the best shooting location according to the weather, and you’ll be an active part of this planning process to let you develop your photographic skills and location management, an essential skill for a landscape photographer.

The last shooting day will be the 30th of April. We will have the last night in our exclusive accommodation and on the early morning of 1st May we will head back to Bristol where we expect to arrive around 11 am. For this reason, the return trip should be planned from the afternoon of Wednesday the 1st of May. For more info, please check the “How to plan your trip to Bristol” section of this page.

Our exclusive accommodation in the heart of Cornwall

Additional informations

The accommodation is included and in a single occupancy room with a private bathroom in a typical local house close to our shooting locations. This will let us not only be in the real heart of Cornwall for all our shooting activities but also enjoy our relaxing time and post-production surrounded by traditions and charm.

Beverages and food (including breakfast, lunch and dinner) are not included.
The reason for this is that we will be hunting for the best light conditions each day and will, therefore often rely on restaurants, bistros and cafés along the coast to optimize planning and timing. Our accommodation will also allow us to spend time together cooking!

No particular physical preparation is required. Just short walks (15 min max) are waiting for us 🙂 If you have any limitations or doubts, just ask so we can explain every detail better!

This Workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced photographers. It is suggested a good knowledge of the camera and the basics relating to the use of shutter speeds and apertures. Post-production is done through simple development software such as Adobe Lightroom

The following equipment is suggested:

  • Mirrorless or Digital SLR camera (or/and a professional Film camera if you wish!)
  • Wide-angle lens
  • Tripod
  • Remote shutter
  • Photographic filters

Thanks to my sponsors I will be able to provide photographic filters and tripods. For any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via email!

The Workshop is deliberately planned in a season with a significant meteorological instability to have a greater possibility of having interesting light conditions. Unfortunately we can not control the weather, but we can adapt to it. In case of heavy rain, the course will be held in any case giving more emphasis to the post-production and class theory.

The meeting point for our adventure’s beginning (and end) is set at Bristol Airport at 11am of April the 25th.

The airport is conveniently located near our destination and it is serviced by flights from all across Europe, with regional flights within the UK available daily. It is also accessible by car or train from London.

On the 1st of May we will leave our accommodation in the heart of Cornwall around 7 am to be at the airport of Bristol not later than 11 am of the same day where we will bid farewell while anticipating the next adventure together. For this reason, we suggest booking the return flight for no earlier than the afternoon of May 1st. Bristol is a wonderful city, so you might consider spending an additional night in the area to explore it further!
