This is an on location mentoring session. Its designed to be fun and not so formal as that sounds ...... for up to six people, the day starts with a challenge, followed by 1:1 mentoring and ending up at a local hostelry to relax and show off any soopah pix you may have captured! More details below :)

The area of photography dealt with is the real basic of landscapes - the Rule of Thirds.

Hayling Island is a great place for such photography, and we will meet up in the car park at Hayling Island. The Postcode for The Inn on the Beach is PO11 0AS. Get to the Inn on the beach and turn right (west) at the mini roundabout right next to it, and go as far as you can to the end of the car park. Meet there for a start time of 16.00.

Low water is at 18.55, which means we have time for a briefing about what the rule of thirds is before setting off with a challenge/exercise along those lines. I'll then catch each of you up during the afternoon to guide, give tips and help you before we all settle down to put into practice what we have learned at sunset at 18.23.

We'll meet up at 19.15 or thereabouts in the Ship at the top of the Island (postcode PO9 1RD) for a relaxed drink, a social chat and to show off your images. Bring your camera with your images in it to review what you have learned during the day with your peers, its also an opportunity to ask more about the rule of thirds, or indeed anything else photographic :)

Just about the only reason to cancel the event is if there is a reasonable chance of rain. I will get a very good idea two-three days ahead of the event and cancel, if appropriate, at that point. If I cancel I will offer refunds :)

Who is this for? As its about one of the basics of composition its for anyone who wishes to improve their photography. It does not matter at all what camera or mobile camera you have, not what settings you choose to use.

You will need to be able to walk for 30 minutes or so, even though its not necessary at all, the tides offer the opportunity to walk out onto the Winner Bank.

My phone number in case you get lost (it happens!) is[masked].

Bring warmer clothes than you think necessary - at the coast its often cooler and even a moderate wind will chill you ..... and bring wellies!!!

Any other questions, fire away in the comments section! :)
