Cornwall Photography

Join photographer William Gray for a tailor-made day of one-to-one tuition in Cornwall, capturing stunning seascapes and taking your photography to the next level

Renowned for its wonderful, ever-changing light, Cornwall is a magnet to artists and photographers. I'll take you to little-known coves and iconic viewpoints, ensuring you're in the right place at the right time to capture stunning seascapes, amazing clifftop scenery and often-overlooked coastal details. During May, wildflowers carpet the cliff tops; autumn sees golden colours burnishing the ancient oak woods of Bodmin's river valleys, while winter promises feisty weather – perfect for moody seascapes. 
I've designed my Cornwall One-Day Photography Workshops to be as flexible as possible. Let me have your preferred dates and tell me where you want to go, or leave the arrangements to me and I’ll suggest the best location and itinerary to suit the time of year and what you hope to gain from the workshop. I can also plan a tailor-made weekend of photography for you, including suggestions for places to stay.

• Capture the essence of Cornwall: surf-strafed beaches, wild headlands and traditional fishing villages – but also explore lesser-known photographic highlights, such as tin-mine ruins, moorland rivers, lighthouses and dramatic rock formations.
• Master the art of composition and how to simplify scenes for impact as you tackle big Atlantic seascapes using a range of techniques, such as high-key photography and long exposures.
• You'll receive a bespoke itinerary, but potential photo locations include St Michael's Mount, Cape Cornwall, Land's End, Porth Nanven, Lizard Point, Kynance Cove, Trebarwith, Trevose Head, Kennall Vale and Bedruthan Steps.

Why this trip?
• Depending on the time of year, we'll rise early to catch the dawn and photograph until dusk, reacting to the changeable light and weather to make the most of our time in Cornwall.
• The small group size of up to three allows me to concentrate on your individual needs – whether you want to master essentials like exposure, focussing and depth-of-field, or develop your eye for composition or a particular photographic discipline.
• If you're a beginner, there will be plenty of time to become confident with with your camera's settings. You'll be amazed how much you learn in just a day.
• I'll provide instant feedback on your images throughout the day and if you'd like to include a session on post-processing using Lightroom, just let me know.

The exact itinerary for our day will be flexible, photographing from dawn to dusk and reacting to the ever-changing light that washes over Cornwall. When you reserve this workshop using the form below, you'll find sections asking what areas of photography you're keen to focus on, and whether there's a particular area of Cornwall you'd like to explore. Using this information, I'll produce a bespoke itinerary for you.

I just wanted to send huge thanks for our wonderful time in Cornwall doing seascapes and riverscapes! We loved every minute of it and it has given us so much to work on and practise. And of course, I’m pretty sure some amazing shots. You are the perfect host and teacher, generous with your time, patience and expertise. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I have come away with greater confidence to just get out there into the landscape and play around with different settings and creative ideas. I have gained a greater insight and knowledge of the thought processes involved when composing shots, what to look for in good monochrome compositions and how to play around with exposures for those very creative long exposure shots. Perfect.
