Join me, Ian Middleton, for a 5-day, 4-night photography workshop & tour on the beautiful Jurassic Coast of Dorset in the UK. Stretching along Dorset and Devon, the Jurassic Coast is so-named because its landscape and geology record 185 million years of the Earth’s history. The coastline is packed with fantastic photographic opportunities at anytime of the year.

The Jurassic Coast is one of many UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the UK, and a perfect place to learn photography with its jagged, rocky coastline providing many great coastal landscape features. Photograph Durdle Door rock arch amid its glistening pebble beach. Capture the lighthouse and Pulpit Rock at Portland Bill promontory surrounded by crashing waves. Shoot the beautiful half moon bay at Kimmeridge as the receding tide reveals its fascinating rocky underworld. Or trudge out early morning to the gorgeous white chalk cliff at Old Harry, equally as amazing as the White Cliffs of Dover. Also visit the lovely beach and piers of Swanage.

The first day of photography on this UK workshop will begin on Wednesday afternoon once everyone has arrived and checked in. It will end after sunrise on Sunday. Accommodation is included until Sunday.

Accommodation: 4 nights in a single room  (I can arrange extra nights if required)

All transport on workshop days

All tuition and guidance

Travel insurance
(Guests must ensure they have their own travel insurance)

DSLR or mirrorless users ideally (but some advanced compact or bridge SLRs may suit. Contact me to discuss whether your camera is suitable or not).

This workshop involves a fair bit of walking on grassy terrain which could likely be wet and muddy. Good sturdy, water resistant boots are advised. At Durdle door there is quite a steep walk from the car park to the beach. We will be coming down from the clifftop, so the return trip in the dark will also be difficult. Also, Seacombe is a fair walk from where we will park the car and again will be a return walk in the dark.

Best option for Dorset is to fly to London. For flights try: Skyscanner

We will be based at the Premiere Inn, Poole North. You can get to Poole by train. Contact me for pick up from the train station.

If you need car hire then try:

Warm clothes. Ideally layers that can remove or put on as we’ll either be shooting before sunrise or after sunset, in the dark, when it will be colder. You will also need a raincoat. It is England after all!

Group bookings are available on request.
