DARTMOOR IN AUTUMN
Not a lot of people know this, but Dartmoor is the place where I cut my teeth as a landscape photographer a long time ago! Years later I produced a coffee table book on the region and also led a few photography workshops there. The good news is that I’ve decided to run some more photography workshops on Dartmoor. I still know the area well and now I’m based in Cornwall it’s almost on my doorstep, so it would be rude not to!
This workshop will be based in the lovely Two Bridge Hotel and we’ll enjoy 2 full days of photography from before sunrise until nightfall (weather permitting). October is a great time to visit Dartmoor as the autumn colours will be kicking in and changeable weather can produce stunning conditions for landscape photography.
We’ll cover a range of great locations during our time there, including Combestone Tor (one of my favourites), Haytor and Haytor Down, Great Staple Tor, Saddle Tor, Bowerman’s Nose, Mysterious Wistman’s Wood, Shaugh Prior and Buckland Woods for river shots and autumn colour, Widecombe-in-the-Moor and hopefully Brentor Church. We’ll also make numerous stops while travelling between locations as you can take great shots literally anywhere on Dartmoor if the light is favourable. As well as shooting colour landscapes, Dartmoor is also the perfect place to produce dramatic black & white and infrared images – so if you have an infrared modified camera, be sure to bring it along.
The workshop begins at 6.00pm on October 19th 2020, when we meet for a drink and chat in the hotel bar before sitting down for dinner in the hotel’s highly respected restaurant. We’ll then head out at 6.30am on the morning of the 20th so we’re on location well before sunrise. After returning to the hotel for breakfast, we’ll then head out for the rest of the day, taking packed lunches with us, and stay out until after sunset (weather permitting!). After dinner on the 20th, participants will have the chance to show some of their work to the rest of the group. We’ll follow a similar pattern on October 21st, then the workshop will come to an end after sunset, around 7pm.
If you would like to book an extra night at the hotel on October 21st, to avoid travelling home in darkness, please let me know. More info on equipment, clothing etc will be sent out closer to the trip, but feel free to email me if you have any queries.
