Seascape and Sunset Photography in New Brighton

Fort Perch Rock, ,Wallasey, United Kingdom, Wallasey
It’s time to blow those Winter cobwebs away and our Seascape and Sunset Photography at fort Perch Rock at the end of the New Brighton promenade is guaranteed to do just that. This day will delight the photographer who loves the great outdoors but with a few creature comforts close at hand.
This fun filled day with Welshot for you and your camera will provide it all. From lighthouses to rock pools to, from street photography (if that’s your jam) to stormy seas and a spectacular sunset (fingers crossed) complete with blue hour – This afternoon will have it all for the photographer. Join us for an afternoon of photography in New Brighton on Wirral where we will be giving our cameras a great workout. From capturing seascapes to skylines, from pirate ships to fairy gardens (and a chance to practice your macro photography) we promise you it will be worth the effort. Remember those creature comforts we mentioned? Why indulge (or reward) yourself with some delicious fish and chips if you feel so inclined. We know we will be! You Will Learn: How to use your camera settings and functions How to use your Exposure Triangle to give your images a different look/feel How to shoot seascape/landscape photography How shooting in black and white / colour gives different results How to shoot a sunset How to shoot long exposure photos How to think creatively What Welshot can do for you and your photography Beginner to photography?

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this Seascape and Sunset Photography in New Brighton event to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories having learned a thing or three about photography and your camera.

Whether you're a regular meditator or just looking to explore these wellbeing methods for the first time, we aim to provide a warm and welcoming experience for this session.
In these sessions we will focus on the breath, body and senses, learning to be kind to ourselves and trusting life more. We may also use visualisations, mantras and reading from helpful books. Discussion is often a part of the sessions, although there is no obligation to speak if you don't want to.
Mindfulness can help with stress, anxiety, concentration and relationship issues. It can help to ease physical pain and sleep problems. Its origins are in Buddhism, although there is no religious affiliation to these sessions.
Our faciitator is Tom George of Mindful Arts, an experienced wellbeing guide who has taught in a wide range of settings. In addition to mindfulness, Tom takes inspiration from spiritual traditions such as Buddhism, Taoism and Hinduism, and teachers such as Eckhart Tolle and Mooji.
"Tom’s sessions are always well received, people comment on the empathetic way that the sessions are run and how much better they feel afterwards." - Lesley Davies, Sefton CVS
"The sessions are really accessible, many of our group members had never tried mindfulness before and were a bit sceptical at first, but Tom's calm and kind way of guiding people through short meditations is truly wonderful. I highly recommend Tom's sessions!" - Rosie Ashton, Faiths4change
"(Tom) adapts his sessions to meet member's needs. His simple, guided meditations are easy to follow...He is always ready to offer practical advice for overcoming everyday problems and negative mind states such as fear, worry and anxiety." - Attendee
For these sessions, we are fortunate to have the use of a comfortable room with armchairs and sofa, provided by Jo Edwards Training. We have tea and coffee making facilities. The venue is not wheelchair accessible, sadly.

An evening with C. K. McDonnell - Liverpool 15th February
Join us for a fantastic evening with former stand-up comedian, TV writer and bestselling author, C. K. McDonnell.
Join us for a fantastic evening with former stand-up comedian, TV writer and bestselling author, C. K. McDonnell as we hear all about the third novel in his hugely original, fast-paced, very funny and critically acclaimed Manchester-set series revolving around the investigations of The Stranger Times newspaper into the weird, the spooky and the supernatural. The evening will be in-conversation with bestselling crime fiction author, Luca Veste. Love Will Tear Us Apart Marriages are tricky at the best of times, especially when one of you is dead. Vincent Banecroft, the irascible editor of The Stranger Times, has never believed his wife died despite emphatic evidence to the contrary. Now, against all odds, it seems he may actually be proved right; but what lengths will he go to in an attempt to rescue her? With Banecroft distracted, the shock resignation of assistant editor, Hannah Willis, couldn't have come at a worse time. It speaks volumes that her decision to reconcile with her philandering ex-husband is only marginally less surprising than Banecroft and his wife getting back together. In this time of crisis, is her decision to swan off to a fancy new-age retreat run by a celebrity cult really the best thing for anyone? As if that wasn't enough, one of the paper's ex-columnists has disappeared, a particularly impressive trick seeing as he never existed in the first place. Floating statues, hijacked ghosts, homicidal cherubs, irate starlings, Reliant Robins and quite possibly several deeply sinister conspiracies; all-in-all, a typical week for the staff of The Stranger Times. C.K. (Caimh) McDonnell is a former stand-up comedian and TV writer. He performed all around the world, had several well-received Edinburgh shows and supported acts such as Sarah Millican on tour before hanging up his clowning shoes to concentrate on writing. He has also written for numerous TV shows and been nominated for a Kid's TV BAFTA. Caimh lives in Manchester.
Tickets: £5 or £4 if a Waterstones card holder.
