The Dartmoor Summer School of Photography is a non profit event run by Positive Light Projects. Any proceeds left over from fees will be invested in the event and/or in other events run by the organisation.

The cost of the week is £750. This includes participation in workshops and events, materials, room and board (3 meals a day) for 7 nights, 8 days. There are 30 places available at The Dartmoor Summer School of Photography 2019. 



The Dartmoor Summer School of Photography has a commitment to and belief in broadening participation and is now happy to offer a small number of subsidised places and one full bursary place to young local photographers from lower socio-economic backgrounds who would not be able to afford the experience without support. Subsidised places are £300 for the week including workshops, some essential materials, accommodation and full board (3 meals a day). Applicants will have to cover their own travel expenses.

Applicants for this must be UK based and be under the age of 30. If you wish to apply for a subsided positions please email positivelightprojects@gmail.com with a justification of why you should receive a place - we want to know what you hope to get out of this experience, how you think it will develop your practice and what you hope to bring to the table. You will need to include links to your website and Instagram page. Applications for these places are open until Thursday 2nd May.


There are two intern roles available durning the week for a photographer and videographer to document the events and activities that occur, capture what goes on and develop their own practice in the process. These roles would suit a student or recent graduate and include mentorship and guidance before and after with the creation of and resolution of the work made. Please email you CV, web/social media account links, examples of previous work and experience and why you think you should be given this opportunity to positivelightprojects@gmail.com

After 1 June, no payment will be returned. (We will endeavour to fill the space and if so all fees will be returned but we can make no guarantees.
