Capturing Corfe at Sunrise Photography Workshop

02nd Oct, 2020 - AVAILABLE

Tutored by Andy Farrer and

£199.00 pp (£238.80 inc vat)

Approximately - Loading...

Corfe Castle is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Dorset, and for good reason. It’s dramatic ruins command attention from far and wide. The Castle can be seen on the skyline from all aspects.

The fortification stands above the village of Corfe Castle on The Isle of Purbeck, a peninsular, not an island. A castle was founded at Corfe soon after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The medieval remains of the Castle which are familiar today, were built in the 12th and 13th centuries, and eventually slighted by the parliamentarians in 1645 after being one of the last remaining Royalist strongholds. 

Your tutor for this one day workshop, Andy Farrer, is based just five miles from Corfe Castle in Swanage and has been photographing the castle ever since he had a camera. Andy’s image of Corfe features on the cover of the National Trust's guide book for Corfe Castle.

Corfe Castle Photography Workshop - Corfe Castle Landscape Photography

Corfe Castle is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Dorset, and for good reason. It’s dramatic ruins command attention from far and wide. The Castle can be seen on the skyline from all aspects.

The fortification stands above the village of Corfe Castle on The Isle of Purbeck, a peninsular, not an island. A castle was founded at Corfe soon after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The medieval remains of the Castle which are familiar today, were built in the 12th and 13th centuries, and eventually slighted by the parliamentarians in 1645 after being one of the last remaining Royalist strongholds. 

You can’t fail to let your mind wander and think of the history which has unfolded when you see the Castle from the surrounding hilltops.

Your tutor for this one day workshop, Andy Farrer, is based just five miles from Corfe Castle in Swanage and has been photographing the castle ever since he had a camera. Andy’s image of Corfe features on the cover of the National Trust's guide book for Corfe Castle. He will share his favourite viewpoints, both the classic and the more unusual ones.

Early Autumn is the best time of the year for misty mornings, so with luck we will have a dramatic start to the day as we shoot sunrise. 

Ideally, you should have a sturdy tripod and a long telephoto lens for some of the viewpoints. Andy uses a 100-400mm. Something longer than 200mm would be ideal. This is an active workshop with steep hills, so appropriate footwear is essential.

The workshop will start at 06:15 and finish at around 14:00/15:00.
