The Dorset Astrophotography & Landscape Photography Workshop is a combination workshop that will focus on nightscape photography, but at the same time, look to explore the stunning Jurassic Coastline in the golden hour, sunset, and twilight hours.
The Dorset Jurassic Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has an array of world famous spectacular coastal landmarks and formations littered along its shores, providing amazing seascape photography backdrops day or night.
Considered as one of the few original pioneers of landscape astrophotography within the UK, it was the Dorset Coast where Ollie first devised a structured workflow for himself, and later to teach night photography within the landscape.
The group landscape photography workshops will include visits to three or four classic Dorset seascape locations (TBC on booking) which can include Mupe Bay, Pulpit Rock, Durdle Door, Kimmeridge Bay, and Portland Bill Lighthouse.
By 2019 Ollie will have over a decade and a half experience within the landscape photography industry enabling him to take the group through various aspects of landscape photography from composition to creating a striking landscape image, before looking at implementing similar, and new, techniques into nightscape photography field work; and the possibility of shooting the Milky Way on clear nights. As Ollie is located in Dorset when home in the UK, he knows it well, thus ensuring you get the most from the locations visited on the workshop, both night and day.
Ollie will work with the group as a whole and individually with participants, and other topics covered may include settings and camera modes, metering, advanced exposure methods, double exposures and panoramas (depending on individual experience).
Bring your images to life with a post-production editing session to conclude the workshop, along with full planning tutorials on how to plan shoots both day and night.
Luxury holiday cottages are favoured (usually with dark skies around the actual premises) for these type of workshops as it isolates the group from noise in the mornings, after late nights shooting the stars.
It is possible to book this workshop without accommodation for people living locally (this must be by the end of October 2018). Discount can be given for two people sharing a room either in a shared double, or single beds; please contact Ollie for further information via the enquiry form tab.
More information regarding equipment required is discussed on initial enquiry or booking.
