One of England's smallest national parks, Exmoor contains some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the country making it perfect for our 2-day photography workshop. A special combination of coast and countryside, forest and moorland, it is also one of the UK's most unspoilt regions.
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.
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 the twin towns of Lynton and 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.
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 2-day workshop. For photographers seeking both beauty and tremendous variety, this wonderful region is bursting with photographic potential.
Our workshop in August is timed to coincide with the flowering of the heather, which provides a blaze of colour around this time of year.
This photography workshop takes place on 4th June 2021 and 20th August 2021
