Landscape Photography of Dartmoor and the Wilderness
Wilderness Landscape Photography by Alex Nail
Welcome to my online landscape photography gallery of Dartmoor and the wilderness. Dartmoor is the home of my photography but I also travel further afield to wilderness areas in the UK and abroad in search unique and spectacular images.
Landscape photography is a great passion of mine and occupies the majority of my spare time. I am often found hiking over Dartmoor's tors and also like wild camping, particularly in the mountains. Increasingly I am drawn to remote wilderness landscapes which often present a greater challenge along with an unrivalled sense of solitude.
When classic locations have become overrun with landscape photographers I like to head out in search of new scenes and inspiration. I most enjoy capturing landscape photos of sweeping vistas rich in depth and colour.
I like to share my enthusiasm for landscape photography with others and I have written a number of articles for photography magazines. I also run 1-to-1 photography workshops at weekends throughout the year.
My images are available as prints through my website. I also sell digital images for publications and website use please contact me with any queries you may have. I hope you enjoy looking through my gallery!

I know pricing is this ‘dark art’ that nobody talks about and consequently many photographers have no idea what the going rate is for images. Moreover, lots of photographers give their images away for free as if it’s the done thing (it shouldn’t be!). So rather than tow the party line too much and rant [...]
When Emma asked me whether I’d had a good trip in Snowdonia I had to respond ‘kind of’. That’s probably the best way of putting it. Close but no cigar. I’d hoped originally to make use of the Bank Holiday weekend by heading up to Torridon with a friend of mine, Stephen Sellman. Whilst my [...]
Running up Pew Tor at 5.45 on Sunday morning desperate to reach the top before the red light disappeared from the sky I was being pushed forward by the fear of failure. Nearly all of my photography trips are built on excitement about a particular area, or the potential weather, but so often what propels [...]
