Hadrian’s Wall Photography Workshop
Date 1 June 2024
Time 2.30pm – 9.00pm
Max. group size 4 participants
Cost £80 per person
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 small-group photography workshop we’ll visit some of the most inspiring areas along this stretch, starting at Steel Rigg and taking in Milecastle 39 (but not Sycamore Gap, alas), Cawfields and Walltown Crags.
The workshop takes place in early summer, when the sun is setting in the north to illuminate 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 near 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 popular photography 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 allows me to devote ample time throughout the day to each individual participant’s needs and priorities.
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.
Some walking over uneven ground and up fairly steep slopes, so a reasonable degree of fitness will be needed, along with sturdy walking shoes or boots.
