Yorkshire Coast Creative Seascapes Workshop







Whitby- The Yorkshire Coast is a diverse and dramatic location and the town of Whitby is steeped in history and offers an endless supply of subjects for the creative photographer.


This seascape workshop takes in both sides of the town and includes the piers, the beach, harbour and the famous Whitby Steps. We look at wide views, as well as close up details, capturing everyday subjects in creative ways. The day can be timed to allow a shoot at high tide for long exposures, as well as at low tide to access the shore.


We look for:

colour,  shape,  movement,  simplicity,  quirkiness,

subjects suitable for black and white, as well as unqiue views that most people would miss.


It’s all here at Whitby!




The day starts at 10.00am and finishes at around 4pm, weekdays only, with a break for coffee.

Price includes 6 hours tuition and the chosen day will be timed around the tide.

Lunch is not included in the price, so please bring your own food and drink requirements.

You will also need to pay for a days parking at one of the towns car parks if arriving by car.




During the workshop we will cover all techniques required for creative seascape photography. We’ll look at the use of wide angle lenses and using foreground to create interesting compositions. We’ll also look at how filters work at the coast, including the use of ND filters to extend exposures. We then bring the attention to the smaller details, the creative shots and how to capture imaginative images from everyday subjects a the coast.

I will have a full range of LEE filters for you to try in the Seven5 system, so that you can see which are the best filters for landscape and try before you (possibly) buy.





Ideal for the complete beginner, this photography workshop is a great opportunity to learn the basics of seascape photography in a fun and relaxed environment. For the more advanced photographer, this workshop offers unique insight into the creative views I look for at the coast. This is a walking route only, so a good level of fitness and mobility is required, walking on beaches at low tide, but also climbing the many steps in the town




You will need to bring:

  • Digital camera of any type, whichever you use, we cater for all preferences!
  • A range of lenses from wide angle to telephoto.
  • A tripod and any filters you may have.
  • Your cameras instruction manual may be useful.
  • Waterproof clothing and good walking boots is a must.
  • A thirst for knowledge and the willingness to become a more creative photographer!
