Three Lighthouses of Anglesey Photography Workshop (November 10th 2024)



Join me on November 10th on the Isle of Anglesey to photograph the three most prominent lighthouse locations at Penmon Point, Llandwyn Island and South Stack.

This workshop is a day suited to all levels of photographer and we will spend our time photographing coastal scenes from both high up and low down giving us a chance to capture grand landscapes from above and long exposures of the coast from below.

We will start off at Penmon Point, a fantastic lighthouse which is literally a 2 minute walk from the car on the eastern side of the island. The lighthouse is set against a backdrop of Puffin Island, a familiar sight to anyone who has been to Llandudno or driven along the A55 costal road. We will spend time here capturing low down images of the waves crashing around the rocks as well as some telephoto shots of a more simplified scene of just the lighthouse and Puffin Island.

Next we will move over to the west side of the island.Depending on the conditions, it will dictate which location we go to first. We have the choice of Llanddwyn Island at Newborough Beach or South Stack.

Llanddwyn Island with Tŵr Mawr Lighthouse is a classic location with far reaching views over to Snowdonia and catches the afternoon/evening light perfectly. There are also some opportunities for beach and rocky long exposures providing there is time (the lighthouse is a popular spot!).

South Stack is at Anglesey’s most westerly point and is a much more rugged landscape compared to both of other viewpoints. We have two main options here either shooting from the steps leading down to the lighthouse which acts as a great leading line or from the cliffs above. On a clear day you can even see Ireland from here which is quite something.

All three of these locations work in a variety of weather, even on an overcast day.

We will meet at a convenient location near Bangor before travelling in my car across the Menai Bridge. If you are travelling via Wrexham I am more than happy for you to jump in with me there. We aim to take a break midway through the day to allow us to get some food and drinks as well as have a quick introduction to post-processing in a cafe.

Upon booking you will be provided with a questionnaire to fill out which is a requirement of attending. I will also provide a recommended kit list and what to bring. Please pay particular attention to required equipment as a certain level of appropriate gear is expected. The list won’t be conclusive but aimed to give you the best guidelines possible. Please take a common sense approach to your packing, for example I suggest 2l of water but you may know from experience you need more or less. Please contact me if you are unsure and I will try and advise you the best I can.

Photographically throughout the day we will look at techniques such as focusing, using a tripod, use of filters vs exposure blending, composition, working with the light and more.

I am more than happy to discuss other more advanced techniques on 1-2-1 basis as well as to the group, depending on what is beneficial.

The day is tailored around you as much as possible and I strive to give each of you on the course for that day the best day possible. At the end of the day, you will have hopefully learnt new techniques and taken away some imagery you will be proud of. I am a friendly and relaxed tutor and I welcome you to keep in touch with me after the course to ask me any questions you may have looked over on the day. I have also created a Facebook client area where you can keep in touch, share your photos and keep in touch with other attendees from the day.

There will be a maximum group size of 4 meaning there will be plenty of 1-2-1 time. I will be on hand throughout the day for any questions and my focus will be on ensuring you have the best day possible.

A £40 deposit is required to book with the full amount due no later than 6 weeks before the start of the workshop.
