Suffolk’s Hidden Coast

Suffolk’s Hidden Coast

Suffolk’s  Hidden  Coast

This full one-day photography course (over seven hours of tuition) takes in some of Suffolk’s less visited photographic gems in and around the southern part of Suffolk.   


We will go off the beaten track to photograph old wrecked boats with their wonderful  texture, shapes and colours, we’ll photograph the sea defences that are slowly being reclaimed by the sea, atmospheric  woodland and of course those big skies that Suffolk has in common with Norfolk.


This coastline is also a great place to experiment with different shutter speeds. The changing tides and waves create beautiful shapes around old sea defences. They are just waiting for a slow shutter speed  to create an atmospheric image.

On this course we will cover both the technical and artistic areas of photography. We will cover subjects such as exposure modes, exposure histogram, white balance, exposure compensation, controlling depth of field and creative use of shutter speeds.

We will also look at composition, the use of light and colour and the use of photographic filters.

Because the course is limited to a maximum of five participants there is lots of time for individual tuition. This means I can teach all photographers with different levels of experience on this course.  If you are a beginner, the first thing we will do is get you away from automatic mode so you can begin to master your camera controls. If you have a greater level of knowledge we will look at gaining a higher level of technical skill.


All my courses are run with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I really believe we all learn better when we are having a good time.

At the end of the course I will email every student a full set of comprehensive notes which I think is very important. Even the best of us cannot retain all the information that we are given. The notes are a good back-up for the day’s learning. 

You don’t need any special camera equipment for this day photography workshop. Your regular camera equipment will be fine. It’s the photographer’s eye that’s most important. A tripod would be useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one because I have a number of tripods that I lend out to students.


Although this digital photography workshop is landscape-based, all the skills you will learn are readily transferable to other subjects such as wildlife, sport, architectural and people photography. Each photo shoot will enable you to explore your digital camera and master skills that are useful for a wide range of subjects.  The day begins with all course attendees meeting at a pre-arranged point.  Transport between the different photographic locations is not included but Steve is happy to car-share if you wish.  He will be driving a seven-seater people carrier.  However, if you prefer to use your own car throughout the day, the photographic locations are close to each other and this does not involve driving long distances.
