Enchanting Exmoor – 2 days – August, 2024

Learn photography amid the beautiful landscapes of Exmoor National Park

Spectacular and varied Scenery

Here, wide open moorland plunges down into deep wooded valleys where within lie rocky streams and waterfalls. Exmoor is known for its beautiful rolling patchwork hills and from the moor, where wild ponies and highland cattle can often be found grazing, there are spectacular panoramic views to be found.

Picturesque Locations

We will take you on a photographic journey, from Tarr Steps, a prehistoric clapper bridge spanning the river Barle in the very heart of the moor, to delightful villages tucked away in the Doone Valley. We will visit local landmarks such the famous Robber Bridge, an ancient medieval packhorse bridge, and the dramatic Valley of the Rocks, perched above Lynmouth with its picturesque harbour. Nearby, the unspoilt village of Bossington is picture perfect whilst the pebble beach with its weathered groynes at Porlock Weir offers numerous opportunities for both close up captures and long exposures.

A Blaze of Colour

Our base is the friendly and cosy Simonsbath House Hotel, nestled in the Barle Valley, in the very heart of Exmoor. This provides the perfect starting point for our two day workshop. For photographers seeking both beauty and tremendous variety, this wonderful region is bursting with photographic potential.

Our Exmoor photography workshop in August is timed to coincide with the flowering of the heather, which provides a blaze of colour at around this time of year.

Enchanting Exmoor – 2 days – August, 2024

I've been lucky enough to have been on several photographic workshops and days with Sarah, and my most recent trip on her Exmoor workshop didn't disappoint. As per my past trips, Sarah planned the days out for the weather at the time and provided advice on the locations and the potential compositions, along with on-location photograph reviews and advice. Sarah and her team's approach is friendly and relaxed, and I've seen adjusted methods depending on your level of experience - they're very patient taking the time to explain various settings or approaches to taking a photograph.
Ben Cripps
Sarah is an engaging and talented photographer. Her Exmoor workshop was meticulously planned to encompass as many different locations as possible - whilst still giving time to enjoy and learn. A definite recommendation.

Exmoor Workshop - General Information

The workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to improve their photography so photographers of all levels of experience are welcome. We will give you both practical and technical advice, as well as individual guidance and hands on demonstrations in the field. We will also look at the creative side of photography and developing your vision.

A minimum of 4 participants are required for this workshop to proceed

We will meet at 6pm on the first evening for introductions and a programme brief before dinner. Our photography commences the next morning after breakfast and runs through until 5:00 – 5:30pm on the final day.

We will visit a number of locations over the course of the workshop which will offer you numerous challenges and allow you to fully explore your creative potential. There will also be time to review and critique your images and the opportunity to discuss them with Sarah as we look back on our days’ photography. The workshop has a relaxed format and is designed to be enjoyable as well as well as educational, so aside of improving your photography you can also enjoy the beautiful surroundings and most importantly have fun!

We will have one to two vehicles to take us between locations on days one and two, but a volunteer driver will be required if numbers dictate, and fuel reimbursed at the rate of 22p per mile.
