Hadrian’s Wall is a two-thousand-year-old architectural wonder. Photographically, the best stretches are arguably all in Northumberland, from Chesters Roman Fort near Hexham to Gilsand near the Cumbrian border. During this afternoon photography workshop we’ll visit some of the most inspiring areas along this stretch, starting at Steel Rigg and taking in Sycamore Gap, Cawfields and Walltown Crags. The workshop takes place just a few days after the summer solstice, when the sun sets at its most northerly and illuminates north-facing subjects such as Steel Rigg and Walltown (Walltown Crags, where the workshop will finish, is a particularly good summer location). The workshop is timed to finish at sunset when – weather permitting! – the last light of the day will illuminate the Hadrian’s Wall landscape with a soft, warm light.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to take part in this workshop or if you’d just like more information about this or any other workshop.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and ability, from beginners to more experienced photographers. The small group size enables me to devote ample time to each participant individually.
Bring with you the camera equipment you already own. A tripod will be useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one: it is not essential and I should be able to lend you one for the afternoon.
This workshop will involve some walking over uneven and hilly ground, so a reasonable degree of fitness will be needed. I’d recommend you wear sturdy shoes or walking boots.
