Whitby is a gem of a seaside town nestled around a small harbour at the mouth of the River Esk on the North Yorkshire coast. With its sweeping piers, Victorian architecture, Benedictine Abbey and cobbled side-streets, Whitby has attracted artists and photographers from around the world for over a hundred years! Due to its amazing Goth weekends held twice a year and one of the locations of the famous book, Dracula, Whitby has built a lovable reputation with a more sinister, dark side.
Saltwick Bay is a small, quiet beach made famous for its towering Nabs, Erratic boulders and an old shipwreck.
On this workshop, you will be encouraged to think a little deeper than the obvious and also consider both colour and black and white image options to suit your way of thinking, the location and the mood that the weather presents on the day. Mark Banks will be on hand all day to help you with your ideas and technique in order to make successful images. He will also discuss any technical questions you may have, composition and the use of graduated filters.
Access to Saltwick Bay and Whitby in both cases is via steep paths of around 300 yards in length, which may not suit those with breathing difficulties or poor health. If you're unsure please contact Mark prior to making a booking.
In order to maximise photo opportunities due to shorter daylight hours, participants are asked to bring a packed lunch and drinks.
Maximum group size: 6
What to bring:
  • Warm, waterproof outdoor clothing with plenty of layers
  • comfortable footwear  (wellington boots would be advisable for the beach)
  • umbrella
  • packed lunch, snacks and drinks.
Camera, charged batteries, memory card, tripod and graduated filters (1, 2 & 3 stop hard graduated filters) would all be very useful. 
The meeting point for this event is at the headland near to the entrance of Whitby Holiday Park above Saltwick Bay.  See this link to Google Maps.
