Photography Weekend at Mazzard Farm

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.

Mazzard Farm, based in the heart of East Devon and just 15 minutes away from the coast, is very excited to offer a 2 day (3 nights) photography workshop lead by local Devon landscape photographer, Gary Holpin. You can see a selection of Gary’s work on his website at The key aim of the course 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.

After breakfast at Mazzard Farm, 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.

The workshop will concentrate on landscape photography and will allow you to hone, practice and improve your field craft and technical skills whatever your level of ability and experience. In the evenings, you’ll be able to review and discuss you work in the comfort of the Mazzard Farm lounge over a glass of wine or a cold beer.

Participants should plan to bring their own photography equipment and notebook computer, as well as walking shoes, a sun hat and sunscreen, appropriate clothing and waterproof jacket (just in case).

Once you have arrived at Mazzard Farm, the course base, all transport on photography course days will be provided. Lunch is not included in the rates and will be taken out ‘on location’ at one of Devon’s many fine pubs.
