Southern Northumberland Coast Photo Tour
Join award-winning Northumberland landscape photographer Jason Friend on a small group, 1 day photography workshop exploring the Southern Heritage Coast in Northumberland. Explore amazing locations, learn new skills and develop your compositional eye under the guidance of an award winning landscape photographer.
Northumberland is not only the northernmost county to be found within England but also the least populated. The ‘land of the far horizons’ offers some of the most picturesque scenery to be found throughout the British Isles.
Although Northumberland is now possibly one of the most tranquil and peaceful spots to be found in England, it has not always been that way. Marauding invaders from Scotland and Scandinavia dictated the construction of numerous fortifications to protect these northernmost English lands. The remnants of these buildings remain dotted across the landscape providing an enigmatic contrast to the natural features of the region.
About our Photography Tours
Our Northumberland and Lake District photo tours are unlike any other Lake District or Northumberland photography workshop you may have seen before.
Your tour vehicle is a VW T4 camper van which has be converted to offer everything the landscape photographer requires. With plenty of seating room to discuss techniques and locations over a cup of fresh coffee (or tea!) and a MacBook Pro loaded with Photoshop and Lightroom so that post processing techniques can be explored in between locations or whilst waiting for the light. In addition, the van is fitted with an Epson A3 printer to ensure that some of your finest images are printed for you to take home and show proudly to your family and friends.
Of course to make the perfect print you need to visit the perfect landscape photography location and this where the benefit of having a professional landscape photographer with local knowledge becomes apparent. Jason will be on hand to not only transport you to the well known, must photograph locations in Northumberland and the Lake District but also to other hidden gems which are normally overlooked on the tourist trail. Furthermore, his vast experience of working as a professional photographer means that you will visit these locations when the light is most beneficial.
Whatever your level of experience, Jason is happy to share his knowledge to ensure that your photographic skills develop throughout the photography workshop. He also has a wide knowledge of different camera systems and is always on hand should you have any specific questions regarding your camera.
Our Northumberland and Lake District photo tours are not just a landscape photography workshop, they are a photographic adventure in some of the finest scenery to be found in Northern England.
