Cornwall: Mobile Photography Workshop | 10th-11th August 2019

Cornwall: Mobile Photography Workshop | 10th-11th August 2019


A mobile photography workshop where we will explore the use of a mobile phone camera out in the field.

Personally my mobile is really important to me before, during and after a photoshoot, If I have an opportunity to rece a location beforehand, you can bet I’ll be taking snapshots with my mobile ready for the real thing. I use my mobile to make short behind the scenes films while on a shoot and lastly I’ll use it to post to social media.

I decided to put this workshop together because a number of photographers came forward and told me, they love the workshops, but they only have a mobile device!

During the workshop we’ll learn all about the process of composing and shooting on a mobile device across some of the most stunning landscapes in North Cornwall.

Group size limited to four including myself.

Once you have purchased the workshop I will invite you to a private Facebook group, specifically for the members of this workshop.

We will meet at the Watergate Bay Hotel at 8.30am for an early morning drink and a chance to get to know each other before heading out to shoot in the Bay, we’ll grab lunch around mid-day and take the short drive to Bedruthan Steps where after a short walk we have the opportunity to shoot the dramatic landscape until sunset as well as purchase refreshments from the cafe.

The workshop will conclude early/late evening.

By keeping the group size down to four, it means we can focus on the tuition and bounce off each other, additionally I can cover the transport to and from our photography locations.

Once you have purchased the workshop I will invite you to a private Facebook group, specifically for the members of this workshop so we can keep in touch and make further plans during the two days.

There will definitely be walking on coastal paths and the likelihood of it being muddy and windy is high, but we will not walk more than 45mins in a single stretch, plus there is plenty of opportunity to stop and catch a breather or/and nail that shot.

If you have any questions please email me and I will try and answer them.
