Join Adam for a one day Discovery Tour of the wild and remote Dartmoor National Park. Southern England's largest remaining wilderness, Dartmoor is a wild and exposed place, which make it a breathtaking area for landscape photography.  A landscape rich in myth and legend, the moor has an atmosphere quite unlike any other national park.

Living on the northern edge of Dartmoor, Adam has an in-depth knowledge of the moor.  During this one day workshop Adam will lead you to several epic locations within the National Park and provide guidance and support to help you capture some beautiful landscape photographs.  Throughout the day we will not follow a preset itinerary, but rather choose our locations based on the weather at the time.  This could mean the day could be focused on shooting moorland tors, woodland, fast flowing rivers, or even a combination of all these subjects.  

We will meet at 10:00 at a moorland car park, where you can leave your car for the day.  For the rest of the day, you will travel in Adam's vehicle, stopping off and shooting a variety of locations, finishing with a sunset shoot.  We will aim to finish at around 20:00.

With a maximum group number of only four participants, our chosen locations will be uncrowded ensuring everybody has access to shoot that special viewpoint.  Adam will encourage you to fully explore each location to find your own viewpoints and compositions, while helping you capture beautiful landscape photographs.

Our tours are aimed at everybody, from beginners looking for advice and encouragement through to experienced photographers wishing only to be guided to locations.  With such a small group, you can be assured of Adam’s attention, support and feedback throughout each location we visit.

Please note: This tour requires a moderate level of fitness.  Some locations require walks of up to 30 minutes over uneven moorland paths, of which some will be uphill.

Recommendations

"Thanks very much for your guidance, care and attention over the few days last week and for your eternal optimism about the weather !!"

Len, West Cornwall Discovery Tour

"Just a short note to say how much Helen and I enjoyed meeting you on the Aurora Photographic workshop last week. Your presence on the workshop as principal tutor made the trip a complete success. I was particularly impressed with your willingness to help any of the participants, irrespective of their skill level and equally impressive was your patience. It was great to have shared the Icelandic experience with you and I hope that our paths will cross again. "

Neil, Iceland Aurora Workshop

"As you know, I said that I hope to get one photo per day that I regard as "great". Well, on this workshop, I have achieved one photo every location we stopped in. That's 13 "great" shots for me. That's down to your knowledge, experience and guidance at each location. This is one of the best workshops I have attended and that's down to you. Your coaching and support was great. Just watching you create your own images was educational. I will definitely try to attend some of your other workshops."

Mark, Anglesey & Snowdonia Discovery Tour (2023)

"Just a wee email to thank you once again for a totally brilliant workshop, and for all your patience with my compositional efforts! I learned vastly more from you in the last three days than I have from all the other workshops I've been to combined."

Eric, Northumberland Discovery Tour
