Spectacular coastal landscape

Our base is just 5.4 km from St. Michael’s Mount and just a short 5-minute walk to the town centre, the perfect base for us to explore all the area has to offer.

We will explore a variety of great locations along the Peninsula for unique elevated views of the rugged coast.

Historic Tin Mines

The landscape of Cornwall is dotted with the remnants of tin mines, including engine houses, chimneys, and spoil heaps. These structures are a distinctive feature of the region’s industrial heritage and provide some fascinating subjects to photograph, especially places like Botallack Mine which sits on the edge of a cliff and can be photographed from above.

Powerful ocean scenery

The sea and coastal landscapes of Cornwall provide excellent opportunities for seascape photography. The interplay of light, water, the tides and waves, and the unique rock formations along the coastline, provide opportunities for some great compositions.

Cornwall is a peninsula bordered by the Irish Sea to the north, the English Channel to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Therefore, this section of the British coast is often hit by dramatic weather and is pounded by, often quite powerful, waves.

Diverse conditions

The weather and sea conditions can vary, and the region can be stormy during certain times of the year. The sea can be quite calm in the more sheltered areas and extremely rough in exposed sections of the coast.

These variable conditions provide us with some great opportunities to get a wide variety of images from dramatic waves crashing against jagged cliffs to calm, dreamy long exposures of the tide receding over a pristine sandy beach.

Join me for an unforgettable Cornwall photography workshop, and capture some unique images to treasure.
