Thornham is a thriving village and is situated in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in North Norfolk. It has a small population of less than 400 inhabitants and, as well as being a popular holiday destination, provides the year-round population with a wonderful place to live. It is a haven for artists and photographers and is popular with walkers, golfers and those seeking quiet and tranquillity.
Thornham Village Hall is a popular venue; much loved and used by the local population and is at the west end of the village. This modern, spacious and outstanding hall, was opened in January 2014 by Her Majesty the Queen; an event at which, Julia was the sole photographer to be asked to record the event. Julia first delivered courses in Thornham at the Drill Hall and since the opening of the new hall, has continued to offer a range of photographic workshops, in this village, but now at this much upgraded venue.
There are also many photographic opportunities to explore in this area, from the RSPB Bird Reserve at Titchwell, to the east of Thornham and, to the west, Holme-next-the-Sea and the NWT. The harbour area is always inspiring and the beach, village and marsh are wonderful throughout the year.
New for autumn 2017, through Norfolk Community Learning Services, Julia will deliver her popular ‘Get Started’ Photographic Portfolio Development course. The course will run through the year and will cover both camera skills and editing techniques to allow those attending to develop and progress their photography and create portfolios of photos to share and be proud of.
