Once you realise that the defining quality of any landscape is the weather then you are truly able to grasp landscape photography. The weather governs the two most important features of landscape images, notably lighting and mood.

Tony Worobiec, a master of landscape photography, will present his vision on how to use the weather to better your photography, followed by a practical session centred on the famous Birling Gap area near Eastbourne in East Sussex.

This workshop/practical session will give you the opportunity to listen to, and then be coached in real-world situations amongst the breath-taking scenery of the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs in January when the sea and the sky can be at their most inspiring.

The afternoon workshop element will take place “whatever the weather” so you should come dressed appropriately, along with suitable protection for your camera equipment.

Tony’s work can be found at

Important Location Information

The Birling Gap Café is situated right next to the beach, which is accessed via a ramp. Given the possibility of cliff falls, this access to the beach may be withdrawn without notice. Further details can be found at, which also includes a history of the site and details of the café.

The lecture part of the workshop is taking place in the Learning Room next to the Café.

The Birling Gap site suffers from constant erosion and participants should be aware at all times of the possibility of rock falls from above and cliff breakaways so extreme caution should be exercised at the site.

The ticket price includes all-day parking for all participants plus a welcome coffee or tea.
