Join Adam next September for a landscape photography workshop on the spectacular Lizard Peninsula.

The Lizard is one of the most dramatic and wonderfully rugged areas of Cornwall.  Stretching out at the southern tip of the county it is also the most southerly point in mainland Britain; this remoteness gives the area an atmosphere of wildness.  With geology unlike anywhere else in Cornwall the coastline here feels very different to it's often photographed nearby counterpart, the Penwith Peninsula, and makes a wonderful area for coastal photography. 

On this tour, Adam will be guiding you to many of the most photogenic coastal locations on the Lizard, as well as some of it's lesser known gems.  Of course, no visit to the Lizard would be complete without photographing its most iconic spots, and we will be spending a good amount of time at Kynance Cove, Mullion Cove and Lizard Point.

Our tour begins mid afternoon on the first day, where after an initial short briefing we will head out to shoot sunset.  For the following two days we will aim to be shooting from sunrise through to sunset, returning to the hotel after sunrise for breakfast before heading out again late morning for the rest of the day.

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 requiring a moderate level of fitness.  Some locations will involve walks over cliff top paths of up to 20-30 minutes.

Accommodation

During this workshop we will be based at the Polurrian on the Lizard Hotel.  Set on the cliffs overlooking a beautiful sandy beach, the Polurrian on the Lizard makes a fantastic location to base ourselves for the workshop, with most of our photographic locations easily accessible with a 15 minute drive. Each guest will enjoy single occupancy in a double bedroom with en-suite facilities.  For more information about the hotel please visit the hotel website.

What to Bring

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

"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."

"Thanks very much for your guidance, care and attention over the few days last week and for your eternal optimism about the weather !!"

"Adam. I Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic day on Thursday. It has to be the best money I have ever spent on anything photographic, by a long way. Not only has my landscape photography improved, it is now on a different level, as is my technique overall."

David, Cornwall Workshop

"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
