luxury photographic adventures in dorset and beyond

Welcome to your tailor-made photography workshop across the rugged landscapes and ancient ruins of Dorset and Wiltshire, in the south of England.

With views that span hundreds of millions of years, along with neolithic monuments from thousands of years ago, this is as much an expedition through time as it is through landscape photography. Capturing images from the stunning Jurassic Coastline, Stonehenge, Lyme Regis, Purbeck and the countryside in between, this is a trip that will ensure you leave with memory cards full to the brim of amazing sights and adventures. Working directly with Paul, before, during and after your journey across this incredible part of England, you'll be treated to stunning locations, amazing experiences and down-to-earth photographic tuition which will ensure you capture both fine art prints that you'll be proud to display for all to see, as well as memories that will last a lifetime.

Staying in luxury boutique accommodation in the heart of the action, we'll incorporate landscape, aerial, sunrise and seascape photography into your private workshop itinerary, delivering a portfolio of your own stunning images that will be truly unique and special to you.
