WHAT'S NEW WITH DEVON PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL
The first big challenge of 2021, as far as I see it, is to address the page title ‘What’s New With Devon Photography School’. Nobody needs reminding of 2020. in fact, I never bothered to see it out. In a, literally, last minute protest in favour of its demise, I locked up, switched off the phone and pulled the duvet over my head at five minutes to midnight. My way of pushing it out the door and not even bothering to wave it goodbye as it staggered off down the drive…
The thing is, even though we stayed active throughout the year that shall not be named with one-to-one tuition, the exciting, big ticket, DPS group events all had to go on hold, as venues and transportation options fell to the obligation of responsible social distancing.
As for 2021… well, we’ve already held a strategising meeting of our own COBRA team, which, in the air of full disclosure, mainly consisted of the now fully recovered Mark and I saying ‘do you know where I fancy going this year..?’ to each other, followed by a list of places in and around Devon that we hadn’t made it to in 2020 (basically everywhere in and around Devon...). We desperately want to get back to Lundy this year, and are considering upping our Wiscombe Park Hill Climb visits from two to three events in the upcoming programme. Plus, we have a few ideas for photo-walks to some of the lesser known spots of the moors, that we feel we can commit to regardless of all but a full lockdown.
One event that we have determined to be involved with, in collaboration with our good friend Andrew McCarthy and Howard Frank of Westcott Barton is a residential nature and landscape photography workshop scheduled for late May of this year, details for which are below.
I'm also going to leave the pretty pictures from 2019 on the page too, to inspire us all for this year (and so's we've got something to look at...).
