A rough outline of the course is as follows:

Friday evening, participants arrive at house from 5 pm onwards. Weather permitting everyone will head out to catch the evening sunset.  John will then have a chat with everyone and outline details of the following days. Locations and timings depend on tides and of course the weather. Saturday morning you will be up before dawn to get the best of the light. Then back to the house for breakfast followed by another photo session at a different location. There is always a break of about three hours in the afternoon to allow people to get some dinner and have a rest. Then its back out again until sunset. Somewhere in the middle of all this John will also show some of his work. Sunday is another early start and the course finishes up about 2pm to allow people time to travel home. It is quite intensive and we try to pack a lot into the few days. However, please do bear in mind that there is no strict timetable and the weather dictates much of what we do and where we go. Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast basis. Each person will have their own room with use of the kitchen etc if they want. Noreen lookes after all the catering and she will leave breakfast cereals, bread etc out for the early start and then on return there is some fresh baking and a cooked breakfast. There will always be home baking and snacks available during the day and the only meal you really need to look after yourself is dinner on Saturday. Most people tend to go to the local pub or hotel for this.
