Photo Walk for a Fiver! - The Barn to the Beach - Thornham - Group Photography Walk
Location: Thornham, North West Norfolk
Event type: Guided group photography walk for beginners and hobbyists. A social event that offers attendees the chance to practice photography with direction and guidance from a qualified and experienced photographer.
Date and time: To be confirmed
Meeting Point/Sat Nav Postcode: Thornham village hall car park next to Thornham Deli - PE36 6LX
Details: The village of Thornham is situated 4 miles east of Hunstanton on the A149 coast road. Our meeting point is Thornham Village Hall car park. Our walk will take us from the car park to the (much photographed) coal barn, through saltmarsh (via the coast path), then onto the beautiful beach and dunes of Holme and views towards East Sands and Titchwell.
After a brief introduction, we'll spend some time in the old harbour photographing the barn, boats, moorings and famous Thornham stumps. We'll then set off on our walk along the coast path to the dunes at Holme. When we get to the dunes and beach, we'll practice some seascape/beach photography in and around the dunes. In our two locations (harbour and beach), I'll offer some themes and direction but you'll be free to wander and capture things in your own creative style. I'll be on hand to answer any questions you may have, to take a look at your images and to encourage with every click of the shutter.
The walk is aimed at beginner and hobbyist photographers, any camera type is fine (smartphones 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 aren't intended to be in depth/technical tuition sessions but more of an opportunity for like minded folk to get together and practice taking photographs. If you have any concerns before booking your place, please just drop me an email.
