Keen amateur photographer Tom Bird came down for a two day course. Here's his overview of his Cornish Seascape Workshop.
“What a fantastic couple of days seeing and photographing some truly spectacular Cornish bays, coasts and seascape locations!
I booked this 2-day 1:1 workshop with Chris after seeing his Cornish Seascape Workshop advert in Outdoor Photography and visiting his website. I followed a link and took a look at his photography website and decided this could be for me. I don't have significant seascape (or photography) experience but wanted to give it a try.
I am delighted to say that the trip exceeded expectations in every way.
Chris is an experienced professional photographer who now focuses on seascapes - his knowledge of both the discipline and the topic is bottomless. As is his understanding of the Cornish coastline and he knew the best places to visit for sunrise and sunset shoots and how to get the best from the opportunities that the weather conditions presented. In his studio, he showed me the way to get the best from my shots using Camera Raw and Photoshop, something I had been wary of until now and the results were excellent!
He can accommodate 1 or 2 people in his COVID aware home and looks after all the details so well...meals, snacks, transport, briefings, the best locations based on sun and tides - everything.
I arrived at lunchtime and was immediately put at ease by Chris - nothing too much trouble and a very easy going approach. He clearly just wanted me to a) get some great seascape shots (tick) and b) have a relaxing and enjoyable time (tick).
I would recommend this workshop for anyone interested in seascape photography - most of his clients return and I am sure I will be one of them!”
