WILD DARTMOOR

£635.00 / £100.00 Deposit

The wild, ancient landscape of Dartmoor is where I discovered my passion for landscape photography. As a teenager living in South Devon, I used to strap my camera bag and tripod to the back of my motorbike and explore the exposed moors, isolated tors and wooded valleys on two wheels. More than 30 years later, I'm now living in the Southwest again and my love of Dartmoor has been re-kindled.

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 , Vixen Tor, Saddle Tor, Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose, Mysterious Wistman’s Wood, Buckland Woods, the Windy Post 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 7th 2021, 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 6.00am on the morning of the 8th so we’re on location 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!). We’ll follow a similar pattern on October 9th, then the workshop will come to an end after sunset, around 7.30pm. 

If you would like to book an extra night at the hotel on October 9th, 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.
