LOCATION

Weeke Barton

Dartmoor, Exeter EX6 7HH

Set in the Teign Valley on the Eastside of Dartmoor, Weeke Barton is just 20 minutes from Exeter yet feels like miles from anywhere. You are also within easy reach some of Devon's best beaches and the ever-growing portfolio of totally brilliant restaurants and pubs. A car is essential, we will share more details about the exact locations of all the properties once you're booked in.

FAQs

What level of photography/videography experience do I have to have to attend Obscura?

Obscura is a workshop for those looking to improve their skills rather than learn from scratch, so you will need to know your way around your digital camera, have access to editing software etc but looking to improve upon this - however we welcome experienced photographers who are looking to learn the basics of videography!

What are the transport options?

What should I bring with me to the workshop?

To have access to some beautiful and remote locations around Dartmoor National Park and the Devonshire coast, a car is a must, as the hotel is fairly remote, and we will be travelling in convoy to the couple shoot locations.

Bring your camera/lenses and anything else you would take on a shoot, as we will be getting out on location with a real couple, so a great chance to come away with shareable content! It is also advisable to bring a laptop/tablet to take notes, access the schedule and follow lessons on editing. It is also worth bringing anything you might need for the few days you will be with us! Weather in the area is also very changeable so all-weather clothing and comfortable footwear is advised!

Do I need to bring my own food?

We will be providing a communal welcome dinner on the first night. Breakfast is included on both days. Lunch is also available at the hotel at £12pp for everyone on the workshop on Tuesday. This is entirely optional, but a great networking opportunity. There is a village shop which sells basic foods but the nearest supermarket is in Exeter, about 20 mins drive away, so you may want to pick up supplies on the way in. Alternatively there are plenty of nice pubs locally for food, but pre-booking is advised. If you are staying in one of the nearby cottages, these are self-catered, if you want to take advantage of that facility.

What time is check in/check out?

Check in on the first day is from 4pm. Please do not arrive before 4pm. We will be having a welcome drink at 5.30pm followed by a welcome dinner at 6.30pm. Check out on the final day will be before 11am. We will be shooting on the final day, so luggage will need to be brought with you on the shoot.

How are you dealing with COVID?

Can I bring a partner/friend/pet with me?

We are obviously hoping the workshop is taking place well after all COVID restrictions have been lifted, however in the event that the workshop cannot take place due to restrictions, we will be moving the event to a new date and all tickets will remain valid. Anyone who cannot attend the new date will be offered a full refund. Whether or not there are restrictions in place, you are more than welcome to bring masks/hand sanitiser and take any other precautionary measures that make you feel comfortable.

Obscura is, by design, an intimate workshop for a small group of wedding professionals and as such may only be attended by those with an attendee ticket. The hotel does not allow animals in the rooms or public areas.

What is your cancellation policy?

Once the 14 day cooling off period has expired, all tickets are non-refundable, barring cancellation or postponement of the event by the organisers - however, with the written permission of the organisers, it may be possible to transfer your ticket to someone else. Please contact us if you are looking to transfer your ticket.
