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 in Devon on the edge of Dartmoor, Adam’s knowledge of the national park is exceptional.
Alternatively, if you prefer to shoot coastal scenes Adam can put together an itinerary based on the spectacular north coast of Cornwall and Devon. 1-2-1 days can also be arranged further afield but would incur an additional fee to cover Adam's travel and accommodation expenses; if you would like to arrange a 1-2-1 in a location of your choice please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.
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 Burton is a great photographer and a great communicator. He didn't bamboozle me with jargon and unnecessary technicalities - we just got down to the nitty gritty of taking a good photograph. The day just flew by which is always a good sign in my book. The day was very informative, hugely enjoyable and I learnt a great deal. All I have to do now is remember everything we covered and put it into practice. Perhaps easier said than done!"
"Just a short note to say how much Helen and I enjoyed meeting you on Tatra Photography’s 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. "
"Adam, you are extremely gifted and a wonderful teacher and communicator. Thanks for leading us through those difficult weather conditions so positively."
