Maximum group size 4
Based in Bideford, North Devon
North Devon offers many opportunities for Infrared photography in Black & White and Colour. Infrared has an ability to capture dramatic skies and I am often drawn to them. More recently, I have been spending time in the amazing dunes we have all along the North Devon coast. I have been exploring ways to capture them in Black & White and also colour. These images are then developed using Lightroom. Capturing and editing Infrared images is only slightly different from conventional photography, so you will adapt quickly. You can use Photoshop or Lightroom to process your images but if you are a Lightroom user, I will share with you my unique way to perform channel swap in Lightroom without the use of Photoshop.
This workshop combines shooting, editing and printing. We are a small group and will divide our time creatively depending on the conditions. The outline plan is for 2 full days of shooting and 1 full day of developing and printing. Our studio offers the very latest A3, A2 and A1 printers from Canon and Epson and fine art papers from Fotospeed. All of the studio facilities are available during the workshop and we have included a material budget for 1-day of printing.
Location and Accommodation
The workshop is based in North Devon. We will use locations along the coast and inland depending on conditions. The editing and processing day will be held at Kingsdown House in Bideford, the home of Adrian and Clea Beasley.
You will be staying at the Hoops Inn, just outside Bideford on a single occupancy B&B basis and all transport is provided during the workshop.
Breakfast and packed lunches are included every day. Clea will cook for one of the evening meals leaving just two evening meals at your expense.
Transport will be provided during the workshop, you can leave your car at the hotel. Let me know if you intend to travel to the workshop by train as we will almost certainly be able to transfer you too and from Barnstaple station.

The workshop starts at 4pm on the first day and finishes at 4pm on the last to allow for travel and de-stress. The first session will involve personal introductions, introduction to the workshop and schedule followed by a shoot in the hotel grounds to setup your cameras for the next few days.
A camera converted to Infrared or a suitable camera with Infrared filter and tripod. If you are not sure if you have the right equipment, please email Adrian for advice. I have three different converted cameras that could be loaned but please check with Adrian for availability BEFORE booking!
