In the far southwest of England, an untouched landscape with rugged cliffs, imposing surf and coastal vegetation that blossoms beautifully in spring awaits us. These are all perfect conditions for creative long exposures. In addition, we will learn about exciting image composition and optimal exposure control. The focus of this trip is on photography by the sea, at low tide and of course in the best light at dawn and dusk. We will show you how to create impressive effects of water and waves with long exposures.
In Dartmoor National Park we explore ancient, fairytale forests, gorgeous waterfalls and moss-covered and fern-lined streams. When the weather is right, we will create photos with a mystical atmosphere.
All locations have been extensively scouted. We know the exact times of high and low tide and which location is the most interesting, depending on the tide and time of day. So we can take you to the most promising locations and always count on optimal light conditions.
