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!

Jan 4, 2015:  An Teallach in Winter

The ascent of An Teallach at the end of 2014 turned out to be both the most enjoyable and most terrifying moment of the year. As a landscape photographer it holds a special place amongst UK mountains. Even the name ‘An Teallach’ fills me with excitement. I had been discussing the hike for a few […]


Sep 10, 2014:  Resize for web v4

EDIT: Within 7 hours of posting this someone pointed out that the 900px action actually resizes to 1000px! This has now been fixed, but you may wish to download to action again, sorry! Many photographers professional and amateur alike currently use my web resizing action as a quick way to produce critically sharp images for […]
