Course location: The hills, valleys, woodlands, moors and coast of Exmoor, around Tarr Steps and Lynton, Somerset and north Devon.
Times: 11am to sunset, approx 6.15pm.
Price: £95 per person
Coastal, moorland and woodland landscape photography in some of Exmoor’s most beautiful areas. We’ll start the day at the ancient Tarr Steps, a prehistoric bridge across the Barle River, where we’ll photograph not only the bridge, but also the river and its surrounding woodland. From here, we’ll travel to nearby Winsford Hill to photograph open moorland and the steep, wooded valley known as The Punchbowl. In the afternoon we’ll move to the Valley of Rocks, near the town of Lynton, where we’ll photograph the rugged valley, the coastal views, and finally sunset over the Bristol Channel.
The course will aim to teach the following skills:
Participants should have at least an understanding of what shutter speed and lens aperture mean, plus a knowledge of how to operate their own camera in order to get at least basic images. Beyond this, the main requirements are enthusiasm, an open mind and a readiness to learn!
Note: Since we’ll be working outdoors, what we are able to do during the day is very weather-dependent. Weather conditions may make it necessary to vary the itinerary.
