Photographing Thornham - The Barn to the Beach 

Event type: Group walk - A relaxed event that provides an opportunity for photography practice and learning alongside other friendly and creative people. Direction, advice and walk guidance from Jon Clifton -

Date and time: Sunday 29th January - 10:30am - The walk will take approx. 3-4 hours

Meeting Point/Sat Nav Postcode: Thornham village hall car park / PE36 6LX

Details: After a brief introduction, our route takes us to the atmospheric old harbour where you'll have an opportunity to photograph the coal barn, moorings, boats and mysterious Thornham stumps. After this, we'll head around the coast path through the marshes, along the newly laid section of boardwalk, to the beautiful beach and dunes at Holme. After a quick stop for refreshments at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre, we'll retrace our steps along the coast path and back to the car park.

In our two locations (old harbour and beach) and on route, you'll be offered some themes and direction for things to photograph but will be free to wander and capture images in your own creative style, if you see something you find interesting, please feel free to stop and photograph it. We all see things differently and that is to be nurtured and encouraged. I'll be on hand to answer any questions you may have, to take a look at your images and to offer some gentle advice and encouragement.

The walk is aimed at those who enjoy taking photographs or exploring the Norfolk coast. Any camera type is fine (smartphone included) - please don't worry if you're new to photography, walks aren't a competition and everyone is made to feel equally welcome. Group walks provide an opportunity for like minded folk to get together and practice taking photographs, they aren't intended to be in depth tuition sessions (which work best on a 1:1 basis). If you have any concerns before booking your place, please just drop me an email.
