Join Adam for a Discovery Tour photographing the beautiful Northumberland Coast.  With the lowest population density in England, Northumberland is a quiet, unspoilt, and incredibly beautiful county with a breathtaking coastline.  The coastline here is characterised by vast stretches of empty sandy beaches backed by dunes, met occasionally with pockets of dramatic rocky outcrops.  Some of the UK's most imposing castles can be found perched on these outcrops, providing a wealth of delights for the avid seascape photographer. 

We will be visiting some of Northumberland's truly iconic locations, including Bamburgh Beach, Dunstanburgh and Holy Island, while along the way we will explore some lesser known coves and beaches.

To give you the greatest chance of photographing these amazing locations in the best available light, the itinerary has been designed to include three sunrises and three sunsets.  We will kick off midday on the first day where, following a quick introduction we can head out to the coast to shoot locations for mid afternoon and then sunset.  Two full days of photography follow, with a little rest time allocated after breakfast to allow you opportunity to relax and recharge your batteries (and your camera batteries!).  On the final day we will shoot sunrise and then the tour will finish after breakfast, giving you ample daylight hours to make the long journey home.

With a maximum group number of only four participants, our chosen locations will be uncrowded ensuring everybody has access to shoot that special viewpoint.  Adam will encourage you to fully explore each location to find your own viewpoints and compositions, while helping you capture beautiful landscape photographs.

Our tours are aimed at everybody, from beginners looking for advice and encouragement through to experienced photographers wishing only to be guided to locations.  With such a small group, you can be assured of Adam’s attention, support and feedback throughout each location we visit.

Please note: This tour has been classified as easy.  Most of the locations are accessed very close to car parks, or with walks of up to 20 minutes along flat footpaths.  

Accommodation

Our base for this Discovery Tour will be the Victoria Hotel in Bamburgh.  Located a few hundred yards up the road from the spectacular Bamburgh Castle, the Victoria is a charming, historic hotel in the heart of an idyllic coastal village setting.  For more information on the hotel please visit their website.

Recommendations

"As you know, I said that I hope to get one photo per day that I regard as "great". Well, on this workshop, I have achieved one photo every location we stopped in. That's 13 "great" shots for me. That's down to your knowledge, experience and guidance at each location. This is one of the best workshops I have attended and that's down to you. Your coaching and support was great. Just watching you create your own images was educational. I will definitely try to attend some of your other workshops."

Mark, Anglesey & Snowdonia Discovery Tour (2023)

"Just a wee email to thank you once again for a totally brilliant workshop, and for all your patience with my compositional efforts! I learned vastly more from you in the last three days than I have from all the other workshops I've been to combined."

Eric, Northumberland Discovery Tour

"I just want to say how much I enjoyed our session on Friday last. Not only did you impart a great deal of instruction and information you did it in a very relaxed and informal way. All in all I gained a lot, not only from your patient instruction but from our easy and relaxed conversation."

Dennis, 1-2-1 Tuition Day

"Thank you for the excellent tours this year. Your efforts to get us in the best locations for the conditions were outstanding. Always consulting, always giving options and taking all the group along with the decisions that were made. The weather could have been kinder but I don’t think we missed a location and made an image wherever we went. You are an excellent teacher but you also give people space to try things for themselves."
