Pulpit Rock at Dawn

Portland Bill Photography workshop (West Jurassic Coast)

Pulpit rock is the result of quarrying on the Isle of Portland in the mid 19th century but remained a small scale operation into the early 20th century. Quarries were on the west side of the bill and stone was transported along a short tramway to a shipping quay, now the site of Red Crane. An area absorbed into the quarries was White Hole, where quarrymen cut away a natural arch to form Pulpit Rock in the 1870s

The Portland Bill Photography workshop is held in a variety of locations on along Dorset's spectacular Jurassic Coast on Portland. The coastline offers many photographic opportunities including great views of Osmington Mills Beach, Chesil beach, Portland Bill Lighthouse, and Pulpit Rock.

All aspects of photography training are covered over the course of this landscape photography workshop, including composition, creative use of shutter speeds and aperture, direction and quality of light, photographic filters, histograms (digital users), camera controls, accurate exposure readings and, most importantly, how to develop your photographer’s eye to improve your photography no end.
