Outdoor Adventure Sports photography requires skills over and beyond standard techniques. Lighting, composition, capturing fast moving subjects, how to work in challenging environments such as hanging from ropes and rigging in all types of weather are just some of the technical skills that will be mastered and your inner creative is also sure to be unleashed with Dartmoor’s expansive views quite literally taking your breathe away.

For experienced climbers, there will be a chance to photograph from ropes, while equally stunning shots will be obtained from those who’d rather keep their feet firmly on the ground.
