Cornwall is England's coastal county, a place of ancient trade, Arthurian myths, mining history and, for many of us, fond holiday memories from childhood. Its rugged and varied shoreline epitomises Europe’s wild western Celtic fringe. Storm systems generate stupendous waves here with the fetch being across the entire north Atlantic. The pattern of fast-moving, breezy, temperate maritime weather is a core characteristic. Often wonderful in lighting terms, but not always easy technically-speaking.

The May 2019 Leading Lights photography workshop is based in the Lands End hotel, a simply unique place from which to explore Cornwall's ‘uttermost west’ and includes specific training in print workflow and production, as well as our usual fieldwork sessions. The workshop will be led by Joe Cornish who has 15 years of experience in digital post production and has been printing digitally as a fine art photographer since 2007.

Lands End Cornwall Print and Processing Workshop

Lands End Cornwall Photography Workshop

Cornwall is England's coastal county, a place of ancient trade, Arthurian myths, mining history and, for many of us, fond holiday memories from childhood. Its rugged and varied shoreline epitomises Europe’s wild western Celtic fringe. Storm systems generate stupendous waves here with the fetch being across the entire north Atlantic. The pattern of fast-moving, breezy, temperate maritime weather is a core characteristic. Often wonderful in lighting terms, but not always easy technically-speaking.

The May 2019 Leading Lights photography workshop is based in the Lands End hotel, a simply unique place from which to explore Cornwall's ‘uttermost west’ and includes specific training in print workflow and production, as well as our usual fieldwork sessions. Although inevitably popularised in touristic terms by its status as England’s most westerly point, the cliff scenery here remains almost unmatched for its wild beauty. A great bonus for us is that the wonders literally start at the back doorstep, and will minimise the need to drive. We can take advantage of fast-changing weather conditions in a way that is impossible in most places. Depending on the weather and our progress with the printing element of the workshop we can also find amazing landscape at nearby Porthcurno, St Michaels Mount, Porth Nanven (with its famous granite boulders), Cape Cornwall and the iconic tin mining landscape of Botallack.

Given the 'state of the art' now, it can be argued that if you never make prints you don't need a camera, just a phone (or a bridge camera at the most). For any committed and ambitious photographer the finished print remains the ultimate form for the photograph, and it is certainly the most difficult of photographic crafts to master. With this in mind we are particularly delighted to have the support of Fotospeed for this workshop. Their presence and expertise will help us tackle the many questions and details in all aspects of practical print workflow. They will also bring examples of their paper for us to test. While the fundamentals of colour management form part of the workshop, interpretation of the image for print is our core theme, as well as advice on how to optimise your own working environment at home, so that your prints will be consistently successful. We will provide an Epson printer for all to use during the workshop.

The workshop will be led by Joe Cornish. Joe Cornish prints more regularly than most photographers, having his own North Yorkshire gallery to provide for, and he brings over thirty years as darkroom worker, photographer, and publisher to his printing experience. He has 15 years of experience in digital post production and has been printing digitally as a fine art photographer since 2007.

The tour is limited to 5 participants to allow for a 5:1 learning experience.
