Photo Tour Dorset Jurassic Coast & Woodlands

Dorset is a county in the southwest of England and lies on the coast of the English Channel. In this region you will experience the best of both worlds, because Dorset is not only known for impressive coastal landscapes on the Jurassic Coast and beautiful sandy beaches, but also for unspoilt rural areas with mysterious forests. The region is a fantastic playground for landscape photography. The varied coastal landscape is characterised by chalk cliffs and spectacular limestone cliffs and is one of the most beautiful in the UK.

As usual, we count on local know-how on this Dorset photo tour. You will be travelling with renowned British professional landscape photographer Jack Lodge. Jack grew up in Dorset and will take you to the best and most beautiful photo spots of his homeland. He will adjust the guiding by the level of knowledge of the participants and will be happy to give helpful and creative tips for photography.

Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons to visit the south of England. In April, the beauty of Dorset is almost all yours. Nature awakens, the trees sprout, the birds chirp and the young lambs leap across the endless green pastures. In the woods of Dorset, the bluebell season is beginning, and purple carpets of blossom provides a stunning colour spectacle.

Join us in Dorset with your camera and take home the magical beauty of this British region in dreamlike images.

What our clients say

Daniel

The photo tour "Wild Scotland" has the right name. We experienced a week with weather typical for this region. Overcast skies, sunshine in between, dense fog in the mountains and short heavy rain showers with strong winds. It was a good opportunity to test out the waterproof and windproof clothing. The tour was well organised and everything worked well. Ralf led the tour prudently with a lot of humour, constantly coordinating with Nick, the local photographer, in choosing the next photo stop. They reacted flexibly to the changing weather. Both supported the participants very well in photo-technical questions and Nick, thanks to his very good local knowledge, was able to draw our attention to small details in the composition of the picture. The photo tour is recommended for photographers who want to experience the wild nature of Scotland and especially the beautiful Isle of Skye.

Karsten

I can only recommend photo tours with Amazing Views. Everything is always perfectly organised, they react spontaneously to weather, changing conditions and wishes, the tour guides are always top-notch, and you don't just feel like a customer but part of a big family with the same interests.

Mystical Scotland, October 2021

Frank

The trip was excellently prepared and organized from the beginning to the very last detail. Everything worked out perfectly. The travel documentation was very informative and comprehensive. Our companions Jenny and Nick were excellent hosts, always very attentive, helpful and in a good mood. The atmosphere within the group was great, also thanks to our companions. The trip will remain in my best memories.

Mystical Scotland, October 2019

Dominique

It was my first trip to Scotland, but definitely not the last! As a part-time press & event photographer, my concern with photo tours is not so much to be supported by the photographers, but to be in the right place at the right time. The group also significantly increases the motivation for getting up early. The local photographers Nick (Wild Scotland) and Marcus (Outer Hebrides) knows their region, they know exactly which photo spots work best in which weather and they also share their knowledge. The support by Jenny and one of the two local photo guides was sensational, communicative and always trying to bring out the best for the participants. My expectations were exceeded by far, even as an event photographer I was able to learn a lot in landscape photography thanks to the support. Thank you very much for these two photo tours in breath-taking Scotland. I will be gladly back with Amazing Views.

Wild Scotland & Outer Hebrides, May 2019

Christiane

The photo tour was perfectly organized right from the beginning, already the detailed information before the start of the tour indicated for an excellent organization. The daily planning, adapted to weather conditions and the interests of us photographers left nothing to be desired and the beauty of the landscapes contributed the rest. We always had the feeling that Jennifer and Nick wanted to bring out the best for the participants and we were always reminded to ask questions, get information and express wishes. Personally, I always felt very comfortable and in good hands, had fun taking pictures and certainly learned a lot. The "camp frenzy" also didn't come up because of the harmonious group - my conclusion: I'm any time happy to travel again with Amazing Views!

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Andrea

This fantastic photo week in the Scottish Highlands and on the Isle of Skye will remain in my positive memories for a long time. I rarely get so much good photo material together in one week. The support by Jenny and Nick was very pleasant and professional. They led us to unique photo spots and passed on their photo knowledge in a pleasant way. I was able to profit a lot and refine my photo technique. I was completely satisfied and would go on a photo tour with Amazing Views again anytime.

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Markus

In May I was in Scotland for the first time ever on an organized photo tour. Not only did I enjoy the breath-taking landscapes, but also the trip and its organisation was just perfect for me and met or exceeded all expectations. It is unbelievable with what commitment and passion the two photographers/guides Jennifer & Nick are working and putting their shoulders to the wheel. The planning is highly professional and everything is adjusted to the right light and weather conditions. If the weather did not play along, we reorganized and looked for other spots. It was an incredibly great and learning week together with other photo enthusiasts and we had a lot of fun.

Wild Scotland, May 2019

Heinz

This is my first time in Scotland, and I am simply thrilled. The tour was top organized by Jenny and very professionally guided by Nick Hanson. We did not lack for anything. Very suitably selected hotels with very good Scottish cuisine including local specialities such as haggis. Partly off the beaten track we went to the most beautiful photo motives of Isle of Sky and the Highlands. Often, we took pictures at places we would never have found without the local guide. It is not easy to find spots on Skye that are always adapted to the weather, but Jenny and Nick mastered that. Thanks again and good light wherever you take pictures.

Wild Scotland, September / October 2018

Diana

With Jenny, Harry and Nick we were allowed to get to know a part of Scotland. I can now understand your enthusiasm for this wild country. Thank you so much for letting me come along. As a beginner I felt well looked after among all the cracks, and not at all as an outsider. I got a different eye for the landscape around me and I am very grateful for that. My photo equipment is always ready.

Outer Hebrides & Wild Scotland, September / October 2018

Susanne

Wild Scotland fully complied with the tender! With sunshine and blue "disturbances", with rainbows and hailstorms we were able to capture the landscape photographically. What more could the photographer's heart desire... Jenny and Nick were always helpful and competent at our side. Gladly anytime again!

Wild Scotland, September / October 2018

Isabella

Seldom has a landscape impressed me as much as the one on Skye. The peace and simplicity of the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. The weather was mostly good and so I took great pictures with beautiful light moods. Now I can reminisce at home while editing the pictures. Jenny and Nick were great tour guides/photographers and always brought us to the photo spots at the right time of day (sometimes even in the middle of the night). With their patient and humorous manner, they always gave us valuable tips. Thanks for the great organization and unforgettable days. See you next time...

Wild Scotland, May 2018

Fabian

The trip was great! The organization and execution, as well as the support was super. We visited very nice photo spots, as described in the travel description. Also, we were lucky with the weather. Except for a little rain it was nice and warm. I also think it's great that we were accompanied by guides who know the region very well. This was my first trip with Amazing Views and my expectations were completely fulfilled.

Accommodation

Charming country hotel in the heart of Purbecks

Our first accommodation is a charming country hotel in a perfect location for exploring the Purbeck Peninsula.
Each room is individually and characterfully designed with unplastered stone walls and beautiful exposed wooden beams. Steeped in history and charm, the rooms have a modern bathroom, seating area and wifi.
The country hotel's restaurant serves fine food with most ingredients sourced from within a 20-mile radius. There is plenty of nature around the accommodation and great views of the beautiful surroundings.

Beautiful country house in Wimborne 

The second accommodation from our Dorset photography trip is a beautifully renovated Georgian style country house, family owned in Wimborne.
The house has double and single rooms and gives us enough space for a comfortable stay. There are several bathrooms and showers available on different floors. The house has various living rooms and lounges in addition to the bedrooms. All living rooms have high ceilings and are decorated with charm and attention to detail. Each bedroom is uniquely decorated with antique furniture. The traditional bathrooms have been beautifully renovated.
A cosy living room and a dining room complete the country house's offer. Entertainment and relaxation are offered by the Media & Games Room and the Jacuzzi on the terrace. In the spacious Media & Games Room we can hold picture tuitions and image editing sessions.
We have rented the house exclusively for our group.    

Travel season April

Spring is the perfect time to discover the beauty of Dorset at your leisure. On the one hand, the weather is particularly changeable now, which can make for fantastic light moods, and on the other hand, sunrise and sunset take place at very pleasant times. The temperatures during the day are between 8-11 degrees. We deliberately chose this time of year to photograph the coastal landscapes and the first blossoms in the forests.

Clothing

Due to changeable sprig weather, you need to be prepared for all weather conditions in Dorset. We therefore recommend breathable functional clothing using the onion principle, which transports perspiration to the outside without losing heat and dries quickly.

Fitness

The trip is not particularly physically demanding. We will do short hikes to the photo locations.

Half of a double room

Single travellers can register for half a double room. If no second guest registers to share the room, the single supplement will apply.

Insurance

It is strongly recommended that you take out cancellation insurance and return travel insurance, which covers evacuation, local hospitalisation and return travel costs to Switzerland in the event of an emergency.
