Autumn Light Photographic Workshop


Please select the date you wish to attend, below.

  • Monday 21st October
  • Thursday 24th October


With its dramatic woodlands, rolling landscapes and tumbling streams, the Exmoor National Park is a fabulous location any time of year, but in the Autumn it is simply stunning and this workshop is designed to help you make the most of it.

Why not join me for a day of Autumnal magic?!

This workshop is designed for people who wish to explore the Autumn light within the Exmoor National Park. We will meet in the morning and have a brief chat over coffee before heading out for the rest of the day.

We will have a break late afternoon and shoot through to sunset finishing around 4-5 pm.

Throughout the day we will look at techniques such as working with the light, composition, focusing, understanding your camera settings, exposing correctly, using filters, bracketing and creative techniques as well a general landscape workflow.

We will be visiting two or three locations and whilst this won’t involve extensive distances we will be walking up and downstream valleys. The ground is uneven and care is required walking over stones and boulders and looking out for moss-covered tree roots.

“Many thanks for all the help on your photography workshop in getting me away from auto settings, and understanding depth of field, rule of 3rds ect, it has been a great help in improving my photography skills and making everything even more enjoyable than I ever thought possible, Many thanks, Mark.” Mike, Taunton, Somerset
“Mark has the knack of simplifying the technical. He is always available to answer questions, even when they have been asked before.” Katrina, Minehead, Somerset.
“After having owned my Nikon DSLR camera for many years and never having taken it off Auto, I decided to join Mark on one of his Full Day Camera courses. He took me through the basics and encouraged me throughout the day, by adding new skills at varying locations. By the time we had finished, I felt confident to continue learning and practising my new skills. A great day for those who need to better understand their camera. Thanks Mark.” Karen, Porlock, Somerset
“Mark has endless patience, is very encouraging and has a wealth of knowledge, he has been a great support in helping me progress my intermediate photography skills from capturing the shot to editing in Lightroom.” Joanne, Minehead, Somerset.
”We had some lovely days with sun, clouds, rain and wind. Today an Exmoor photographer showed us some beautiful places on Exmoor. Thank you Mark Stothard for taking us the whole day out and giving us a lot of tips 😀” Elma, Facebook, NL.
“Mark’s passion for his art of photography, comes through in the warmth and professionalism he shows in all his workshops. He makes you feel welcome, relaxed and nothing is too much trouble! He simplifies instructions so that we can all understand. We all come away feeling greatly inspired and with new knowledge to become better photographers ourselves. His variety of workshops shows his broad knowledge. I particularly enjoyed the trip out onto Exmoor to photograph ponies and Highland cattle, where his enthusiasm is evident. The ambience of the smaller groups, where everyone is friendly and Mark inspires us to help each other, as well as sharing his tips and knowledge with us. I would thoroughly recommend attending any of his workshops.” Sue, Bridgwater, Somerset.
