Yorkshire Coast Creative Seascapes Workshop




2-day 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.

Scarborough- A classic northern seaside town. We explore all the colour and attractions of the beach, as well as the best of the old town. If you like ornate street lamps and quaint alleyways, then Scarborough is the perfect location for you. Its not just deckchairs and ‘Kiss me Quick hats’ (though there is this too!). It’s a touch of urban with the fresh scent of sea air!



We look for:

colour,  shape,  movement,  simplicity,

subjects suitable for black and white, as well as architecture, urban views

and the beauty of the North Yorkshire Coast.



It’s all here at Whitby and Scarborough!




Each 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 days will be timed around the ideal tide.

The price is for the workshop only. It does not include accommodation. You are therefore free to make your own arrangements for a hotel or Airbnb in either town to suit your budget. If you are not driving, a regular bus runs between the two seaside towns.




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, 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 each town (there’s only one way to see those fantastic views!).




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 shoes is a must.
  • A thirst for knowledge and the willingness to become a more creative photographer!
