Dartmoor Discovery Tour - September 2019

Fully Booked

Join Adam for a 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.  Throughout this 3 day tour we will spend time shooting some of Dartmoor's most photogenic scenery, including dramatic granite tors on high moorland, deciduous woodlands with fast flowing rocky rivers flowing through them, delightful rolling countryside and even some of the moor's historic sites.

Our tour begins at midday on the first day, where, after check-in and an initial short briefing we will head out to a variety of locations for the rest of the day.  Each day thereafter we will aim to be shooting from sunrise through to sunset, returning to the hotel after sunrise for breakfast and a few hours downtime before heading out for the rest of the day, returning to our accommodation after sunset.

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.  Although most locations can be acccessed via short walks, several locations require walks of up to 30 minutes, of which some will be uphill.  

Accommodation

During this workshop we will be staying in the Bearslake Inn on the western edge of Dartmoor.  This beautiful thatched building is one of the most charming inns to be found anywhere in the south west.  

Each guest will enjoy single occupancy of a spacious en suite bedroom complete with king sized bed.  For more information please visit the Bearslake Inn's website.
