A 1-2-1 tuition day can be tailored to suit your needs and timescales. Throughout the day Adam will be at hand to provide you with encouragement, instruction and feedback to help improve your landscape photography. Tuition is usually carried out entirely on Dartmoor, where you will be guided to windswept tors on high moorland outcrops, rocky woodland rivers and beautiful rolling countryside. Living on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, Adam’s knowledge of the national park is exceptional. However, if the weather conditions are unfavourable for shooting the moor we may change location to photograph the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall.
The duration of a tuition day will be at least 9 hours (and often more), in which you will be developing your photographic skills with Adam’s support and guidance in a variety of inspirational natural settings. During a typical day, we would hope to visit a minimum of three locations, ending the day with a sunset shoot. Adam will select the optimum locations to visit, taking into account the weather and seasonal highlights to ensure you are photographing each location at it’s very best. While on location tuition is informal and friendly; Adam will help you develop your technique, paying particular emphasis to composition, working with light and mastering filters (a set of Lee ND Filters will be available for your use throughout the day if required).
If you are travelling from further afield and wish to book overnight accommodation, we can recommend two different locations to suit your budget. The Oxenham Arms in the moorland village of South Zeal is over 800 years old, and offers a touch of luxury in a charming historical setting. For the more budget conscious, the Travelodge hotel in Whiddon Down offers excellent value in an easy to reach location, close to the main A30 road. As both of these hotels are close to our north Dartmoor base, Adam will be able to collect/drop off, so you will not need to use your car on tuition day. If you find accommodation further afield, directions will be provided to meet at Adam's home, where you will be able to leave your car securely throughout the day.
"Adam. I Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic day on Thursday. It has to be the best money I have ever spent on anything photographic, by a long way. Not only has my landscape photography improved, it is now on a different level, as is my technique overall."
"Thank you very much for an enjoyable day on Tuesday. I particularly enjoyed your company and patient encouragement in showing me that taking good landscape photographs is not as daunting (or indeed as frustrating) as perhaps I had made it."
"I just want to say how much I enjoyed our session on Friday last. Not only did you impart a great deal of instruction and information you did it in a very relaxed and informal way. All in all I gained a lot, not only from your patient instruction but from our easy and relaxed conversation."
