I have been lucky enough to have some great opportunities to take stunning landscape images across Dorset, Hampshire and the South on England whilst researching for my Landscape Photography Workshops and wanted to put together a calendar for 2012 to share some of those locations with you!
The calendar is printed on high quality lustre paper giving a lovely glare-free finish on the photos and each month has an A4 sized calendar where you can diarise your commitments for the year. Priced at only £9.99 they are available to purchase online through Paypal or by telephoning Helen on 01794 516821 to purchase by credit card. I will also be selling the Calendars at our first prestigious craft fair at BROADLANDS in Romsey on the 29th and 30th October 2011 along with limited edition prints – perfect timing for Christmas presents!

On Thursday 6th October Penny came down to join me in Dorset for a one to one landscape photography workshop – Penny has been shooting for many years and was keen to improve her understanding of using filters to balance exposure and learn how to get “WOW!” shots when she goes out on location.
We met at Hengistbury Head, one of my favourite locations in the area as it’s diversity really means there is a location for every single season and weather condition and, as we were to find out, we used many of them all in one day due to the amazingly varying conditions throughout the day! Penny quickly mastered the use of filters and the understanding of how to create emotion and mood in her photos using a couple of the locations I love so we headed off further up the coast for our sunset shoot.
I’ve recently added another location to my portfolio and Penny was keen to check it out despite the need to battle the wind and a long walk and we were rewarded by some great light and as a result some great images, here are a couple of Penny’s favourite shots from the day

Last weekend keen photographers Jo-An from Halifax and Darren from Poole came down to the Isle of Purbeck for a Landscape Photography workshop. They couldn’t have chosen a better weekend for their workshop with temperatures being recorded around the area at 24 degrees – unfortunately this also brought the world and his wife down to the coast so it was important to constantly evaluate the weather and decide where the best photo opportunities were going to be.
We were rewarded with a lovely clear pink sunrise down in Swanage where Jo-An and Darren quickly got to grips with their ND filters on our first dawn shoot and were finding some fantastic compositions down on Swanage pier later in the day. Introducing them to 10 stop filters down in Kimmeridge around sunset they again were treated to some fantastic light.
Sunday morning and we beat the crowds to the best location to shoot Corfe Castle and photographed the fantastic misty morning, anyone not there 3o minutes before sunrise missed the best of the dawn! After photographing some fantastic autumn colour in Wareham we headed off to Durdle Door for our last sunset shoot managing to photograph the arch from 2 different locations according to the weather.
A great weekend with lots of laughs and returning to the computer this morning, I received an email from Darren saying “I would like to reiterate my thanks for the course as you made me feel at ease, and I learned more than I expected. I was worried that the course might be too technical for me, but you pitch your courses to suit the individuals – your website doesn’t lie!” A great ending to a great Landscape Photography Course! Thanks Jo-An and Darren, I look forward to seeing your photos.
