Standard Landscape Exclusive 1to1

Standard Landscape Course Exclusive 1to1 - Info Page
Exclusive one to one Standard Landscape Courses
During the Standard Course, we often take three customers out on each course. This is a comfortable number and has proven to be a sensible limit that allows plenty of one to one tuition from Jack & Jamie in a relaxed and intimate learning environment.
However, if you would like the course to yourself (guaranteed) then for a nominal additional fee you will have Jack & Jamie all to yourself for the day. We will not book any other customers on the date of your course.
This course is for complete beginners up to an intermediate level. Jack will take you through an A-Z of the most useful settings on your camera and show you all the settings and features listed below ‘what you will learn’. However, the itinerary during this course is flexible and can be designed specifically for your own needs and we can include some bespoke features on the day just for you.
For example showing customers how to get the best from their new ‘big’ lens is one of Jacks specialties. We will help you learn how to hold the lens properly, lock onto, track your subject, and use the correct focus modes and camera settings for nature and wildlife photography. We can often help you with specific subjects, photographing Dippers is a bespoke course we do.

We run the 'Standard Landscape Course Exclusive 1to1' all year round, they run daily excluding Saturdays and Wednesdays and  the Red Deer Rut Special in October. This course is completely field based and during your day with us we will visit several locations,  teaching you different photographic techniques capturing the stunning variety of landscapes that Exmoor has to offer. Please note that the locations we visit can be more flexible on the exclusive 1to1 course, therefore please do not hesitate to discuss with us when booking, any locations you would like to visit and we will try to tailor the course to your individual requirements.

The Photography courses are open to everybody but aimed at complete beginners or keen amateurs.
You do not have to have an expensive camera, just a desire to learn / improve your photography and how to get the most from your camera. It doesn’t matter if you have small compact camera or a full-blown SLR with all the bells and whistles! NB It would be helpful if your camera has settings that allow you to take some manual control of it, ie aperture and shutter priority for example. If your not sure please ask Jack for advice. We also have cameras that you can hire on your course day,  starting at £29.00 (no deposit required), so you can try before you buy. We also have a selection of Nikon N series lenses that you can hire on your course day, starting at £35.00 (no deposit required).
We understand that people’s knowledge and requirements will differ, so what we show you during the course is designed to be flexible and adaptable to your individual ability level, starting with the basics of photography, taking you off ‘auto mode’, by showing you other settings on your camera that perhaps you have never used or completely understood. We will always ensure that you have plenty of time to develop some or all of the techniques listed below.

Jack has created a laminated course handout that you will be given at the 'meet & greet' at the beginning of your day. This is yours to keep and provide a useful reference for you to use, next time you take your camera out on your own!
They are designed to educate, be fun, relaxed, and hopefully enjoyable! We pride ourselves on providing first class customer service here at Exmoor Photography, something that is supported by our  customer reviews.
Lunch and hot/cold beverages are included. There is also aways a supply  wife Alisons legendary flapjack! & homemade cakes.

We have several itineraries that we will follow; the locations we visit will be very much dependent on the weather and time of year. Part of the beauty of Exmoor is the ever changing seasons and we will always try to take you to locations that best demonstrate the natural splendour of this. The locations have been carefully chosen by Jack to offer you a variety of photographic opportunities and subjects that we hope will both challenge, inspire and encourage you to be creative in your photography.

When we visit Dunster, Exmoor Photography has been given permission to enter the Deer Park at Dunster Castle, Dunster. I am delighted that we can take you to the Deer Park, because it offers us a wealth of photographic opportunities at this stunning historic location.
Exmoor Photography also has permission to transport our course members down to Watersmeet House, when we visit this location. This will benefit anyone who may otherwise have difficulty walking down to Watersmeet and back up to the car park.

Exmoor Photography is also Licensed by the National Trust to use several off road tracks during the courses, these will only be used when weather permits and when necessary. We have obtained this license to assist our customers who may have walking difficulties.

We do not take other professional photographers on any of our courses.
