I spent over a decade working as the National Trust’s General Manager on Dartmoor – Drogo, Fingle Woods, Home Farm Café, amongst many other things and now I’m a researcher in the Centre for Rural Policy Research at Exeter University studying hill-farming on the Moor. I love Dartmoor and spend a lot of my time photographing its people, its wildlife and its places.
Half of my pictures are taken on my iPhone and the rest on either a Nikon D850 or a D7000.
I’m on Twitter as @Dartmoor_AC, Instagram @adriancolston and I run ‘A Dartmoor Blog’ https://adriancolston.wordpress.com which is mostly about Dartmoor, its wildlife, farming, archaeology and… its future. I do sometimes stray onto the Isles of Scilly – my other favourite place.
