Bodmin Moor is one of the last unspoilt areas in the South West of England.

Dramatic granite tors tower over the gently rolling moors. Ancient woodlands, standing stones, wild ponies, medieval buildings and mining heritage create the feeling of a timeless landscape.

Explore its legendary heritage and distinctive other-worldly beauty.

This profoundly evocative landscape continues to be a source of inspiraton for Artist, Writers and Poets.

We will be staying at the Jamaica Inn. The renowned 18th century Coaching Inn on Bodmin Moor, where Daphne du Maurier wrote the eponymous Cornish Smugglers novel.

Bodmin Moor is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the same status as National Parks.

Parts of this rugged landscape remain untouched by the passing of the centuries.

This Photography Retreat is a pattern break from your daily routine. A golden opportunity to connect with your passion for photography.

Immerse yourself in nature and revitalise your creative energy.

Whilst on this outdoor experience, Harry Fricker will expertly guide you to breathtaking locations, off the beaten track.

Bespoke mentoring, with a uniquely constructive spirit, will empower you to transform your photography.

Harry is committed to working with you, to achieve your goals.

Limited to four participants, this Landscape Photography Retreat ensures one to one learning.

Within this select group of like-minded people, you will be able to discuss and share ideas whilst enjoying the adventure.

Once you reach Bodmin Moor, Diorama Days will take care of the rest.
