About the workshop /

Nestled in the Devon countryside, Dartmoor National Park boasts some of the most stunning and diverse landscapes in the South West. Its expansive views, babbling brooks, and remarkable lighting offer superb photographic opportunities. It’s often said it’s possible to experience all four seasons on the same day! 

During the SIGMA Masterclass workshop, SIGMA Ambassador and landscape expert Lea Tippett will guide you through several of Dartmoor’s most iconic spots, such as Windy Post, Foggintor Quarry, and Great Staple Tor. The workshop, lasting one day, will concentrate on utilizing contrast, composition, texture, and shape to craft impactful and moody photographs.
