Northumberland is picture perfect
Where shall we begin; if you're even vaguely interested in photography, you won't find a better location to come and develop or practice your art.
Look at any of the 'big names' of the Photography-Workshop world, and you will inevitably find photography courses on the Northumberland Coast in their schedules. That's because they know what they're looking for...
Beautiful photographs of Northumberland's spectacular, romantic, and atmospheric sites are everywhere. The castles, buildings, and harbours; the history and heritage; the locations; and the landscapes, seascapes and wide open skies - they all make for a photographer's dreamland.
Bring your camera gear, slow down and open your eyes. You simply cannot fail...
We have close links with local professional photographer Andy Craig, who can give you one-to-one or small group personal attention. Andy lives here on the Northumberland Coast and photographs it almost every morning for his blog. His photos are around this page, too.
Friendly, informal and inexpensive expert help is available from Andy, if you'd like to take a step up to the next level. (It's worth pointing out that many guests have found these training opportunities more fulfilling - more personal, attentive and responsive to your specific needs - than more expensive courses led by well-known tutors, who often entertain larger groups of 20 or more on their workshops).
After a long day out photographing Northumberland's special places, you want to come home to a really comfortable base - to review and upload your photos, curl up on a huge sofa with a book and a drink, and then retire to the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in.
It's easy to base yourself here for several days and explore Northumberland's amazing photography locations.
