Discover the photographic potential of the local Sussex coast and coastal towns using a combination of approaches. Through studio presentation and practical location based tuition, you will explore, in depth, the techniques and ideas behind creating successful seascape and urban landscape images with both aesthetic appeal and strong narrative.
The overall aim of the course is to understand the fundamentals of creative seascape/landscape photography, develop narrative in your images and produce consistently strong images.
