"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn."

He is one of the best educators I have ever worked with, regardless of discipline…I will come back in a heartbeat, to take other workshops at the gallery that Mr Banks is conducting.”

"I just wanted to thank you once again for the Robin Hood’s Bay course last week. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but more than that I left with a far greater confidence in my compositional abilities, and a decent basic knowledge of Lightroom. The location, accommodation and organisation were first rate, and your maxim of always considering the composition and only later considering whether you could pull it off resounded."

~ Mr N Farrimond, UK

We will be based at the Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel in the lovely village of Embleton. Although accommodation isn't provided as part of the workshop (we like to give people the flexibility to make their own arrangements according to their taste and budget) we do encourage participants to stay in the vicinity of our base. 


Over the four days we will explore this wonderful part of Northumberland, with its dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and castles in stunning settings that offer the landscape photographer image making heaven. This workshop will take you to the coast around Dunstanburgh Castle, the sweeping sands of Embleton Bay, the spectacular and impressive Bamburgh Bay (with its theatrical castle sat on a rocky perch overlooking the sea), the working fishing port at Seahouses and to magical Holy Island with its castle, priory and harbour.

We will also offer an opportunity for you to take part in a Portfolio Review session where you can bring along some of your images for constructive comment and critique. In addition, participants are encouraged to bring along their laptop computers for advice on post-production tips and techniques.
