Summer On The North Kent Marshes
The Estuary Coast line of Medway and North Kent provides some amazing photographic opportunities. Ideal for both wildlife and landscape photographers.
Many varieties of coastal birds such as Little Egrets, black headed gulls, shell ducks and Brent geese, to name but a few can be spotted throughout the year.
For Landscape lovers the salt marshes, mud flats, old boats and ship wrecks along the shoreline are just simply amazing.
This series of workshops are ideal for photographers of all levels of abilities; from beginners to advanced with any type of camera from DSLR to Smartphone.
I shall be guiding you around each area showing you some of the best locations to shoot; providing advice on camera settings, composition and best use of the light the day has to offer.
The workshops run in all weather conditions (unless a risk to life). Some of my best photographs were taken on wet, windy days.
A great opportunity to brush up on your photography skills, explore the North Kent Coast and meet like minded people.
