Wild Dartmoor: Small Group Workshop
£995.00 | 11th - 13th November, 2024 | Fully BookedJoin the Waiting List
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 3-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 the height of autumn, Dartmoor’s wooded valleys are vibrant, creating yet more picture potential. For this reason, we plan to take you to Shaugh Prior – one of Dartmoor’s the most attractive woodland's and home to a photogenic boulder strewn river. With this being one of our more exclusive, small group workshops, we will also visit Fingle Bridge and Nunn's Cross Farm - locations that are less practical to visit with a larger group. It certainly promises to be a busy and productive couple of days photograpic learning...
Our popular small group workshops have a maximum group size of just 6 participants (but still with two tutors). Therefore, you will have more space and freedom on location, and also benefit from an impressive 1:3 tutor to participant ratio. You are guaranteed plenty of bespoke, individual tuition and guidance on this workshop. You will also benefit from the differing perspective of two professional photographers. 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.
Participants will be staying at the famous and cosy Two Bridges Hotel for two nights (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 huge log fires and large leather armchairs provide the perfect place to relax and chat after a good day’s photography. Three course dinner (Monday and Tuesday) and a Devonian breakfast and pack-lunch (Tuesday and Wednesday) are provided in the workshop cost.
If time allows, there will also be a tutorial on using Adobe Lightroom. We hope you can join us…
