Want to spend time with like minded photographers on a safe and socially distanced photography workshop?
This is for you!
*Please note: this is one of very few workshops we can run at the moment, and in the interests of safety social distancing measures will be in place throughout. In accordance with current Covid19 advice we have limited the number of places to 6 and all participants will be required to wear masks (self provided) and remain 1+ metres apart at all times. *For our full safety measures please refer to the booking section below.
Photographer Trai Anfield and wildlife guide Andy Howey invite you to explore Lindisfarne's natural treasures.
This invigorating full day photography walk is the perfect opportunity to encounter a myriad of different natural subjects and practice many different aspects of photography:
practice your panning technique as fulmars glide at eye level along the cliff tops
follow curlew, lapwing & plover in flight and grazing the shoreline, skylark and blackcap on the dunes
switch to macro and capture the orchids, bugloss and harebell that nestle in the dunes
while you're in macro mood capture the weird and wonderful insect life of these coastal niche habitats
put your fieldcraft into action to get close to roe deer peeping through swaying grasses, and seals on the rocks
perfect your landscape photography skills with iconic Lindisfarne castle as an ideal subject
beginner friendly relaxed atmosphere
already photographically confident? this is an ideal opportunity to learn new and more advanced techniques too
In addition to the wild subjects we will photograph, Andy Howey will bring along an example of one of the raptors that are resident here on Holy Island naturally. This may be a barn owl, short eared owl, little owl or kestrel. We will be able to photograph this bird close up and in authentic settings on Lindisfarne.
About The Day: Each One Will Be Unique!
Timings for each workshop date are very varied, and very specific, as Lindisfarne becomes completely cut off from the mainland by every high tide for a significant portion of each day. Of course tide times and heights change throughout the year, so our own timings and schedule are governed by nature too! Please see the booking section below for exact timings for each date.
Depending on when it is safe to cross the causeway we will try to either start early or stay late to take advantage of golden hour sunrise or sunset light.
Andy grew up here and will guide us to his favourite spots that many visitors will miss on their visit to Holy Island.
Trai will be on hand to offer professional photography advice and share creative inspiration, getting the very best out of you and your camera.
Generally we walk for around 3 - 4 miles through the dune system, along the shoreline, around the cliff tops and across the open fields and wetlands. There will be plenty of stops along the way for photography and food.
The terrain is generally quite flat, and we mainly follow sandy tracks, but may also enter more overgrown areas too.
What Our Guests Say
"I was lucky enough to book on to the Treasures of Lindisfarne Work Shop on 20/08/20. I am new to wildlife photography and was a little nervous as I was not sure what to expect but these nerves were soon forgotten as both Trai and Andy are very relaxed and their passion for photography is obvious.
The location is exceptional it has everything from open fields, dunes, cliffs beaches and castles, with endless subject matters ( including deer, birds in flight, insects, seals, butterflies) which allowed us to cover several photography techniques including macro, panning and landscape.
All this has given me the confidence to explore a little more on my own and given me a greater knowledge which will help me improve my photography skills, along with some golden nuggets of information which can only be gained by spending time with a seasoned professional.
I would highly recommend this to anyone regardless of skill level. I hope to attend another workshop soon."
