Why you should come to our Dorset landscape photography workshops?

Dorset is as historic as it is beautiful and one of the best photography locations in the UK. A rugged and unique coast where dinosaurs once roamed shrouded in mystery and beauty alike. This coastline really is a landscape photographers dream with its beautiful light and endless views.

This is a workshop dedicated to the art of landscape photography. Not only will you experience amazing locations at the best time of the day, but you will get the guidance to improve your photography.

There will be many different landscape scenarios, lighting situations, and certainly different weather conditions. All this will provide the various challenges that landscape photography throws at you.

You will be guided through each scenario with expert help, advice, and encouragement. You will learn about settings, composition, filters, long exposures and so much more. There will be amazing shoots and stunning scenery.

They are working photographers who have spent years honing their skills. Their work has appeared across the globe in the likes on National Geographic, Wanderlust Travel Magazine and Lonely Planet.


Peace of mind when booking a Dorset photography trip

There has never been a more important time in ensuring that your deposit or payment is safe. So in the event that any of our tours or workshops don’t go ahead, we offer a 100% refund. No fees and no excuses. So can rest assured that if you book a Dorset landscape photography workshop with us, your booking is safe if the unexpected happens.

We are also taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our guests and instructors. Find out more about this in our blog post: Coronavirus Update – Our Workshop Safety Promise.

Small groups or even private tours

We have always believed that small groups are best for travelling. Not only are they safer to run and manage. But they are also much more sustainable and responsible. This is even more important for a photography course where learning is key.

We limit our workshops to only 6 people at a time and will run them with as few as 3 people. This ensures that everyone on the workshop benefits from ample time with the tutor. In fact for 2 people, if you prefer you can choose to turn this into one of our private tours.

Which means it can be tailored to exactly what you want to achieve. Whether it’s a night photography tour or landscape photography, imagine how much you could learn in a few days with a private instructor to guide you!


Whatever level you are at, we can help

You may have only recently decided to take up photography and find it all overwhelming. Or you may have some knowledge but struggle to capture the sort of photos that you dream of. Or you could be a serious amateur with years of experience but want to take your photography to the next level.

Whatever level you are at, we can help you achieve your photography goals. If you are unsure if you would benefit from this workshop or wish to know more, feel free to email us. Our email address is info@thatwildidea.co.uk

Jurassic Coast Landscape Photography Workshop Tentative Itinerary

Day 1 – Weymouth – Harbour, lighthouse & Pulpit rock

Our Jurassic Coast photography workshop starts in the beautiful harbour town of Weymouth. After arriving at the hotel you will have a meet-and-greet and a brief discussion with your tutor before getting stuck in. We will explore the unique harbour and its colourful buildings before heading to the peninsula to shoot Portland Bill lighthouse and the famous Pulpit rock at sunset. 


Day 2 – Kimmeridge Bay => Abandoned village of Tyneham => Lulworth => Durdle Door (B)

It’s a packed second day as we start with a sunrise shoot at the fossil lined coast of Kimmeridge Bay. The rest of the day will be spent exploring the abandoned village of Tyneham and the picturesque village of Lulworth before making the short drive to the world-famous Durdle Door for sunset. 


Day 3 – Corfe Castle => Old Harry’s Rocks => End of Tour (B)

Our final day starts with a sunrise shoot at the iconic Corfe castle. In the morning mist, this castle quite possibly photographs better than any other in the UK. Once the sun is up we will explore Corfe town before moving on to Old Harry’s rocks. We will return to Weymouth where will have a final discussion and image review after which we will say our goodbyes go our separate ways.
