Light & Land launches luxury photographic retreat on the Isle of Sark
15 June 2011
Just 80 miles south of the English coast, nestled between Guernsey and Normandy, lies the hidden jewel that is the Isle of Sark.
Light & Land is delighted to announce a brand new photographic tour – the first of its kind - to this stunning and remote location, which at just 2.2 square miles boasts over 40 miles of some of the most spectacular and picturesque coastline anywhere in the world.
Hosted by tour leaders Phil Malpas and Clive Minnitt the trip is based at the sumptuously luxurious Stocks Hotel, which is conveniently located in the centre of the Island.
With just 14 client places available and with two dedicated leaders, this tour is designed for those wanting to immerse themselves in both photography and the beauty of this enchanting location.
The aim of this workshop, under Phil and Clive’s expert guidance, will also be to help guests create a body of work suitable for a self published artist’s book. Advice and support will be given on topics including image selection, design, textual content and page layout with the view to using an online publishing service to produce a finished book at the end of the trip.
The tour, which will run in April 2012, is also timed to coincide with the abundance of wildflowers present on the island in early spring – including woodlands carpeted with bluebells, red campion and wild garlic, while the cliff paths, fields and headland deliver a profusion of primroses, thrift and celandines.
Due to the lack of light pollution, Sark is also the first island community in the world to be granted ‘Dark Skies’ status with the milky way stretching from horizon to horizon and on a clear night, stars which
seem close enough to reach out and touch.
As a totally traffic free island, this photographic ‘retreat’ will enable guests to completely escape the pressures of the real world, focus on expanding their photographic knowledge and passion, while enjoying relaxing tranquillity of a luxury hotel base.
