Teesmouth long exposures workshop

Sold Out

Event info

This is an on-location workshop for up to five people. 


The workshop leader will be following safe practices in line with social distancing guidance and will require participants to do the same.


Professional photographer Mark Banks has been running workshops around the Tees Estuary for years as it is full of photographic potential. In this workshop, Mark will be providing tuition on achieving well-balanced long exposure images using nearby locations such as the small harbour of Paddy’s Hole (with its fishing boats), the pier with its lighthouse and the wind farm tucked along the coast. The workshop will finish at sunset (if there is one) and ideal for both colour and black and white photography.

This will be a group C event for up to 5 people.

Lunch arrangements: In order to maximise photo opportunities, participants are asked to bring a packed lunch and drinks.

Please also bring:

Camera, charged batteries, memory card
10-stop ND filter
graduated filters (1, 2 & 3 stop hard graduated filters) if you have them
Warm and waterproof clothing appropriate to the weather
Wellies would be advisable for the beach
small change for car parking.

Venue Information

Although this workshop would be unsuitable for wheelchair users it will be fine for those with limited mobility issues. There is a small flight of steps to access certain parts of the harbour at Paddy’s Hole but Mark will be on hand to help at all times.

The nearest toilets will be in Redcar; about 20 mins round trip by car.

Meet alongside Paddy’s Hole at the end of the Tees Estuary - ignoring the private road signs a couple of miles back.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation by You

If you wish to cancel your booking PLEASE let the event leader / organiser know with as much notice as possible. If nothing else, this can avoid them delaying the start of the event while they wait for you.

If you have paid for an event, please note that this fee/ticket price is non-refundable unless we are able to sell your place to somebody else. You are welcome to sell your place yourself but, again, PLEASE notify the event leader / organiser in advance of any change.

Cancellation by us

Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control.

Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.

If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.

Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
