Dawn to Dusk, East Sussex

Thursday, November 19th 2020, 7.15am - 4.15pm FULL

Tuesday, 12th January 2021, 7.45am - 4.45pm FULL


Join Rachael on the East Sussex coast for an opportunity to work from dawn to dusk. Most of our workshops begin after sunrise because it's not normally possible to incorporate dawn and dusk into a day-workshop.  However, as we approach the winter equinox, sunrise and sunset are closer together, allowing us to create this special, slightly longer than usual, 9-hour workshop.  Due to the limited dates when this can be achieved and the particular tidal range required for Rachael's chosen locations, we will only be running this workshop once in 2019 and, at most, twice in 2020.

During the day, you will visit some of the county’s finest coastal landscapes, most within the South Downs National Park. In recent years, this coastline has been the focus of Rachael’s own photography and she knows the best locations for all conditions. Our exact itinerary will vary depending on the light but it is likely to include the magnificent cliffs of the Seven Sisters, Beachy Head and Birling Gap and, if the conditions look promising, there may even be a chance to capture some serious waves.

This workshop is slightly more strenuous than most of our coastal tours and requires a moderate level of fitness, as there are a few stretches of walking at a gradient, some slippery terrain and possibly some wading (wellington boot height). If you are not sure whether it would be suitable for you, email us and we will discuss it in more detail.

You will need to get to the start of the tour, on the East Sussex coast between Eastbourne and Newhaven (exact location to be confirmed a few days before the tour), under your own steam but then Rachael will drive the group around all day and return you to the start point at the end.

The cost of this workshop is £295 including a light post-dawn breakfast, lunch and refreshments. (Alcoholic drinks excluded.) Group of 4 only.

To secure your place on the workshop, we take an £100 deposit payable now which you can pay by clicking the PayPal link below (no PayPal account needed).


Four weeks before the day of the workshop we require the balance of £195 which is payable via Bank Transfer. You will receive instructions by email once the deposit is received.
