Dartmoor is one of the UK’s last remaining wildernesses. Its rugged, windswept landscape is among the most beautiful and photogenic in Europe. Hundreds of tors punctuate the moorland, and the impressive granite outcrops are fantastically photogenic – particularly in the warm morning and evening light of dawn and dusk.
This National Park is home to a wealth of Bronze and Iron Age remnants, mysterious stone crosses and hut circles. During this 2-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to photograph some of Dartmoor’s most photogenic viewpoints, including Brentor church, Bowerman’s Nose and Great Staple Tor, which all offer stunning, far reaching views over the moors. During early autumn, Dartmoor’s wooded valleys will begin changing colour, creating yet more photographic potential. Therefore, we plan to take you to Shaugh Prior – one of Dartmoor’s most attractive boulder strewn rivers. It promises to be a busy and productive couple of days photography…
Participants will be staying at the famous and cosy Two Bridges Hotel for one night (single occupancy). The Two Bridges ‘Tors restaurant’ is renowned in the South West for quality food and this well appointed hotel is full of character and history. The hotel is situated in the very heart of the moors and is the perfect base for photography. Its log fires and large leather armchairs provide the perfect place to relax and chat after a good day’s photography. Three course dinner and pack-lunch (Monday) and a hearty Devonian breakfast and pack-lunch (Tuesday) are provided in the cost.
For this workshop, we are limiting the group size to just eight participants to ensure viewpoints don’t feel crowded. With a small maximum group size, a large amount of individual, bespoke tuition is guaranteed and you will benefit from the differing perspective of two professionals. Mark and Ross will not only guide you to the key viewpoints, but encourage you to explore each location in order for you to find less obvious compositions and find your own unique perspective.
If time allows, there will also be a tutorial on using Adobe Lightroom. We hope you can join us…
