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.

To enable you to get the most out of the workshop please bring the following camera gear:

  • Digital camera, lenses and memory cards
  • Spare batteries 
  • Tripod
  • Filters (a set of Kase filters will be available for you to use throughout the workshop should you require them)

Recommendations

"Well what can I say about our 3 days. Awesome!! I learnt so much but at the same time had a great time. I can now take a photograph. I can use my camera the way it should be used. You have totally changed the way I look at photography, in the best way. At the same time having a great laugh. I really had a great time, and will be looking into another course next year. Once again, thank you for your help, your patience and for showing me some amazing places."

Alan, 1-2-1 Tuition Day

"In June 2022 I did a 1-2-1 tuition day with Adam on Dartmoor, a fabulous part of Devon. I had a fantastic day with Adam visiting a number of locations to get the best from such a lovely area. His professionalism, skill and location knowledge is excellent and will ensure you always get the best from the day. His knowledge of photography is fantastic and on top of that he really is a fabulous guy to spend a wonderful day with. I would highly recommend Adam either for a workshop or a 1-2-1 tuition day; he will ensure you get the best experience from the day and you will feel after looking at the images you have captured something to be proud of."

Phil, 1-2-1 Tuition Day

"We had a wonderful time, weather was kind to us and hopefully some good images. As always your workshops are really enjoyable and much appreciate the planning and care you take and, as with others in the past, cannot fault them at all. Very much looking forward to being on another in future. I need to be more on the ball as they are generally booked up by the time I hear of them."

Chris, Yorkshire Dales Discovery Tour (2023)

"Thank you very much for an enjoyable day on Tuesday. I particularly enjoyed your company and patient encouragement in showing me that taking good landscape photographs is not as daunting (or indeed as frustrating) as perhaps I had made it."

Robin, 1-2-1 Tuition Day
