Pier and Wreck Photography Workshop


Total cost: £255 including lunch and refreshments.

Photographers frequently overlook the coast around Bognor Regis yet it abounds in opportunities. Rachael Talibart grew up here, literally a stone’s throw from the beach, and her local knowledge ensures that f11 workshops’ tour visits the best locations. In the morning, we will explore underneath Bognor’s Victorian pier, opened in 1865, and we will also have a chance to photograph a rare, wrecked portion of WW2 ‘mulberry harbour’ that has been rusting on a quiet section of the beach since 1944, only revealed at mid to low tide. For the afternoon, we will head west. Likely locations include Dell Quay, a picturesque hamlet on the banks of Chichester Harbour, one of the few remaining undeveloped coastal areas in Southern England, and the nature reserve at East Head where we will finish the day.

This workshop is led by Rachael and it is predominantly landscape and seascape orientated. If you use ND filters, bring them along as the locations chosen are perfect for practising long exposure photography.

You will need to get to the start of the workshop, in Bognor Regis (exact location to be confirmed a few days before the workshop), under your own steam and, while COVID restrictions or high numbers of infections remain, we will ask that you also use your own car to drive between locations if at all possible. This is quite straightforward and we haven't lost anyone yet!

This is not a particularly strenuous workshop and we are able to park reasonably close to all the locations. There are short stretches of shingle beach to be negotiated at all locations and, depending on the recent weather, some of these may be steeply banked.

To secure your place on the workshop, we take an £100 deposit payable via PayPal now (no PayPal account needed).

You will receive instructions by email.
