With amateur photography booming on the back of the social media surge, the Two Bridges Hotel in the heart of Dartmoor National Park is hosting a weekend to give beginner and improving photographers the opportunity to develop their skills.Portia Crossley Photography

The Dartmoor Landscapes Photography Weekend, starting Friday 12th May, is open to anyone with a camera and a desire to learn, and will be led by Devon professional photographer Portia Crossley (who also supplied some of the photos for our Dartmoor Accommodation website).

Those taking part will spend two nights at the Two Bridges Hotel, with practical photography sessions on Dartmoor, and a workshop session to learn new techniques and share creative ideas.

Mike Coombes, Sales and Marketing Manager at Warm Welcome Hotels, commented: “Amateur photography is booming right now, in part thanks the rise of social media and the Instagram generation. With more people discovering this creative and rewarding activity, the time was right for us to put together a weekend which combines the naturally photogenic landscapes of Dartmoor, with expert guidance from a professional photographer who knows the area well.”

Professional photographer and guide for the weekend, Portia Crossley, added: “For anyone with a love of photography, and the wild natural beauty of Dartmoor, this is a great opportunity to hone their photographic skills in an enjoyable and informal way. We’ve designed the content of the weekend so that it provides plenty for beginners, as well as giving improving photographers the chance to test and advance their skills.”

Places on the Dartmoor Landscapes Photography Weekend are limited, and priced at £299 per person including accommodation, meals, practical sessions and expert photography tuition, based on two people sharing.

The Two Bridges Hotel offers luxury accommodation, award-winning dining, traditional Devon Cream Teas, and fine Dartmoor ales, in a stunning setting beside the West Dart River in the heart of Dartmoor National Park.
