Fototonic is going offshore for this unusual tour. Jersey has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world. The immense body of water that floods our coastline makes for some breathtaking duels between the land and the sea. And when the colossal tide recedes it uncovers a huge amount of land known as the “Lunar Landscape”. Join our expert guide to explore the hidden niches and offshore gems this island has to offer.
On the very low tides we will take you out to one of Jersey's offshore towers, then spend some time photographing the tower before walking back to shore over the lunar-like landscape ahead of the oncoming tide. The low tides are at the middle of the day and at the other end of the scale, you could be photographing the very high tides at sunrise or sunset or maybe even beyond sunset. For us, flexibility is key and helping people with both camera and photography techniques to capture some stunning images. We are experienced at knowing how to time this and you will end up with some unique images. If the weather is kind to us, we can organise a trip out to Les Ecrehous or Les Minquiers reef by RIB which, in itself, is a unique experience quite apart from the photography! Les Ecrehous a unique set of reefs off the east coast of Jersey littered with small holiday homes and breathtaking views of France & Jersey. Les Minquiers reef is south of Jersey and has the most amazing sandbanks at low tide. If we can organise this, please note that this is an optional extra to be paid for during the tour.
Whether you are just starting out with photography or are a seasoned pro, we’ll take you on a unique photography journey which will include one to one photography tuition and masterclasses in landscape photography techniques. We’ll follow the light and the tides and explain how to get the best images from each location we visit.
Time spent out on location can be devoted to perfecting a variety of photography skills, perhaps working on getting your composition right to using available light, learning creative camera techniques all the way to using neutral density filters. No two workshops are ever the same and the itinerary is flexible to ensure that each person gets the most from the workshop. Naturally we’ll include image editing techniques back at base to ensure that you take home some winning images. Our wish is you leave with a new technical understanding of your equipment and a streamlined workflow for you to use in the future.
