Belhaven is a glorious, open sweeping beach within the John Muir Country Park in East Lothian. The beach stretches from Belhaven to the north of the River Tyne. It is fringed by low, sheltering sand dunes, rich salt marshes and colourful grasslands that separate the expanse of beach from the real world. Walking from the car park over the marshes you feel as though you have arrived in a quiet pocket of beauty amidst the open sands and roar of the waves.

The workshop will be tutored by Margaret Soraya who spent many years surfing on Belhaven beach and will guide you through techniques of photographing this coastline.

Belhaven Beach Photography Workshop - Dunbar Coastal Photography

Belhaven is a glorious, open sweeping beach within the John Muir Country Park in East Lothian. The beach stretches from Belhaven to the north of the River Tyne. It is fringed by low, sheltering sand dunes, rich salt marshes and colourful grasslands that separate the expanse of beach from the real world. Walking from the car park over the marshes you feel as though you have arrived in a quiet pocket of beauty amidst the open sands and roar of the waves. Margaret spent many years surfing on Belhaven beach and has a special affinity with this coastline. 

Margaret will guide you through techniques of photographing beaches and waves.  There will also be time to really consider your own connection with seascapes and help with how to produce images that reflect your own experiences. The day will be very much about coastal photography in an inspiring location, with an emphasis on slowing down and connecting to the place. The dunes, marshes and grasslands also offer opportunities for images that focus on smaller coastal images. Grasses blowing in the wind, small shells in the sand and water swirling on the shoreline.

Meet at John Muir Car park at 10am ( EH421XF) the closest post code for the middle car park where we will meet. 

Bring wellies or waterproof walking boots and over trousers. We will break for lunch in Dunbar ( included ) and continue with an afternoon shoot after suitably refreshed.
