I am hosting monthly one day Suffolk Photography Course workshops on the beautiful ‘Suffolk Heritage Coast’. My courses are designed to introduce and develop both beginners and intermediates to the next levels of photography. Enjoyment is my key to improving skills, whilst exploring and photographing in some of East Anglia’s finest habitats. Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and occasionally over the border to Norwich Norfolk, are all current course locations.
Why I am well qualified to teach
I very feel fortunate in having gained exemplary teaching experiences, and have used these to structure my Suffolk photography Courses. I have regularly lectured at Saint Martins School of Art (London), London College of Communication and Norwich School of Art. This, together with having worked for some of the Uk’s most iconic organisations, has helped to build and define my career. It has also been a source of inspiration for me, in developing my Italian Photography Course Holidays. Amongst many influential clients, I have been commissioned by the BBC, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Design Council, the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A Museum.
How you’ll learn photography
My one day ‘Suffolk Photography Course’ includes tuition, demos and advice, to introduce and develop photographic skills. Subjects covered may range from landscapes and architecture to interiors and portraiture. So whether you use a smart phone or preferably an SLR camera, the relaxed tuition will be in beautiful environments. The beginner/intermediate courses, will include photographic tips for everybody wanting to improve their basic photography knowledge. My ‘Suffolk photography courses’ are tuned to developing your creative eye. How to make the ordinary extraordinary and occasionally even the ugly, beautiful. How to develop an understanding of light, when to use hard light and when soft light. Once you are developing a feel for the aesthetics, I will guide you towards taking fuller control of your camera. I will also be offering ‘Post production’ winter sessions, to learn how to fine tune your images, file and share. The last of these sessions this year will be in the autumn at the Forum, Norwich, Norfolk.
Suffolk Photography Course locations
The one day Suffolk photographic classes, at different locations in East Anglia, are planned for Saturdays from 9am until 5pm. If the weather intercepts, I will arrange an alternative interior setting nearby. My next date is Saturday 21st April at Walberswick (fully booked). This will be followed by Dunwich on Saturday 12th May (three places left). As I spent an idyllic childhood growing up in Walberswick near Southwold, I know the Suffolk coast very well. Further dates/locations at Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Norwich in Norfolk are listed on my booking form below. The sessions are £85 per person within a group maximum of eight photographers. Private, social, and corporate group tuition can to modelled to a particular requirement and are available by arrangement. Please contact me to discuss any points, or if you wish to arrange a photographic course as an unusual gift. Roland Blunk
