This on-location workshop, led by Justin Minns, will be centred on the Suffolk coast, an interesting and very photogenic mix of wild and unspoilt beaches and man-made structures.
Beginning at sunrise to take advantage of the best light we will have the chance to photograph the area between two of the jewels of the coast, Southwold and Aldeburgh. During the day we’ll learn about composition, camera setting and how, when and why to use filters.
Walks are short and on level ground, sand or shingle beaches. There are some steps. Access to the beach may be difficult for some people but shooting from the promenade will be possible at most locations.
We will stop for breakfast at a cafe (price not included in workshop ticket price).
Please bring / wear:
- Loose change for car parks and public toilets
- Camera, charged batteries, memory card
- Shutter release cable / remote
- 6- and 10-stop neutral density filters (if you have them)
- Graduated neutral density filters (if you have them)
- Warm and waterproof clothing suitable for the weather, location and time of year
This will be a category C event for up to 6 people. Category C means events that focus on a particular skill or technique (such as long exposures, composition or night photography) and/or on getting the best from a particular location. The event leader will have good location knowledge to ensure that the best is made of the prevailing conditions and will be a skilled landscape photographer able to offer tuition at all levels. These events are usually led by professionals but sometimes by volunteer members of the landscape group.
The workshop leader will be following safe practices in line with social distancing guidance and will require participants to do the same. Please do not book if you do not wish to comply.

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.

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 postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.
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.
