Our Dorset photography workshop 'Heather & Heathland' will take place in August 2024. The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset is well known for its chalky cliffs and dramatic coastal geology. But often overlooked by photographers are the many areas of stunning heathland, which can be found all over the Purbeck peninsula (Purbeck is not actually an Isle).

Throughout August, the heathers bloom and transform the landscape into a sea of pink and purple. Sika deer are frequently seen grazing on the heathland as well as the ponies that roam on the common land. The habitat is home to some rare species of birds and reptiles which are frequently seen if you have a keen eye.

Having grown up in this small corner of Dorset, your tutor, Andy Farrer is the ideal person to show you some of his favourite and most photogenic parts of his corner of the county.

This workshop will be a small group workshop (limited to 6 places only), with an early start, before sunrise, to make the most of the soft light. Although not strenuous or steep, we will be walking on uneven and sandy footpaths and expect to get in a few steps. The workshop will conclude no later than 2pm.
