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!

In […]
