Our chosen boat for the workshops is one with the most spacious crafts on the Broads, with four double or twin cabins on board along with three fresh water showers and toilets, full kitchen area and dining table plus a TV, DVD player, microwave, heating and 240V power sockets suitable for charging camera batteries and laptops are also on board. The craft also has plenty of deck space allowing for plenty of photography from the boat on our trips along the river.

The landscape of the Norfolk is unique and like no other area in the UK, the area is a rich haven for wildlife and the wonderful drainage mills / windmills along with the broads themselves both make for excellent landscape opportunities.

By using a boat we can also navigate the entire area with only minimal walking required to get to our target areas. As we will also be using the river ways to travel between locations guests are then free to return back to bed following sunrise should they wish safe in the knowledge that they will not be left behind.

There are over 70 derelict mills in Norfolk and along with the restored mills we will photograph a selection of these mills on our journey.

The workshops are aimed at photographers with an interest in landscape photography however due to the nature of our location there may also be a chance to shoot a range of wildlife subjects found in the area. As much of the wildlife is used to the boats that navigate the area close encounters with some of the Broads wonderful wildlife is always a possibility.

Target subjects include restored and derelict Drainage Mills / Windmills, Broadland traditional wherries and sailing boats along with a selection of the local wildlife.
