As Weekend Photography Courses go, this is not one to miss.
Picture yourself spending two days in the company of professional photographer Gary Holpin whilst visiting some of the most spectacular sites in Devon. Gary has an in-depth knowledge of Devon and the South West and specialise in photographing vibrant coastal scenes – from bustling seaside towns, to remote coves and windswept clifftops.
Having spent over 10 years learning his craft, publishing two books, recently taking 1100 daily feature photographs and amassing over 12,000 followers on social media – it’s safe to say that Gary is a master of his craft.
The Course: the key aim of the weekend is for you to get to know your camera, your subject, and – through post-production – turn your photos in true eye-catching pieces of art. This photography course is great for all skills levels of ability and experience. In the evenings, you’ll be able to review and discuss you work over a glass of wine or a cold beer.
The Accommodation: during the weekend you’ll stay at 5 star Trip Advisor rated, award winning holiday cottages that are both luxurious and friendly.
*Our activity weekend in Cornwall is also available for small school groups or businesses. Please get in touch for more info.
Arrive at the holiday cottages – which are nestled on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty and surrounded by 17 acres of woodland, orchard, gardens and play areas. This truly is a haven of peace and tranquillity, allowing you to relax and unwind when you’re not your on your course.
From the rugged beauty of Dartmoor National Park to the stunning UNESCO World Heritage cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, Devon has inspired filmmakers and photographers from around the globe. So unsurprisingly, people come from far and wide to visit and photograph some of the UK’s most treasured and beautiful landscapes.
After breakfast, you’ll travel out each day to visit different locations from the white regency splendour of Sidmouth set against the red cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, to the traditional fishing village charm of Beer, and rugged beauty of Dartmoor.
Each day you’ll have the option to stop at a lovely pub/cafe for lunch which is a perfect time to discuss and reflect on everything learnt so far.
In the evenings you’ll be heading out for a pub dinner (not included) in one of the great local pubs, which serves great food and great ale!
