How fit do I need to be

You should have a moderate degree of fitness. Althought we will drive to the location so the walking distances will be short, the path down to the coast is often steep. As with any rocky beach it can be slippery so footwear with a good grip is a must. There is no rush so we can take our time.

What level of photographer is this workshop aimed at?

The workshop is tailored to you so any level of photographer is welcome. For beginners all foundations of landscape photography will be covered. For more experienced photographers more advanced creative techniques will be explored.
