Devon Seascapes - Hartland - Summer

  • Devon Hartland Quay EX39 6DU United Kingdom (map)

Devon Photography Workshop 

Hartland Quay in North Devon is one of the UK's most dramatic seascape locations.  Long slithers of rock formations and a fierce tide combine to bring you a fantastic photographic location. Join me for this amazing photography workshop in some the best photographic coastal parts of the UK.

Typically we start the day at Hartland Quay and meet for breakfast at the Hartland Quay Hotel which resides on the cliff edge overlooking the spectacular shoreline.

After some time working the rugged shoreline and beach we move onto a second location - this will depend on wishes of group, tide times and weather but Clovelly harbour is normally a favourite spot for lunch and some different shots.

The afternoon we have more choices to shoot at several local beaches and can choose depending on whether you want rock formations or sand patterns...

The Sunday we head part way back and can stop at Croyde, Heddon or any one of the great coastal spots depending on the requirements of the group - choices are sand dunes, large sweeping sandy beaches, large boulder and pebble beaches or rivers and waterfalls that join the sea.

Equipment for this workshop

 Recommended but it's not all essential:

  • Tripod ( I have some for hire if you don't own one yet)
  • No specialist lenses required, we can make use of whatever you have
  • Remote cable release, useful but not essential
  • A polariser filter is useful but not essential
  • Neutral Density and Graduated ND filters are useful but not essential


In order for a photographic workshop to go ahead, there must be a minimum of three students booked for that particular date. Should there be insufficient interest, alternative dates will be offered.

On the rare occasion that severe weather conditions prevent any of the photography workshops from safely or practically going ahead, other dates will be offered.

If you have any questions about the workshop or equipment please don't hesitate to contact me. or 0781-701-7994
