Not only will we have wide open vistas but the River Affric is one of the central features of the day, providing us with opportunities to expand the photographic potential. Use the river as a backdrop, freeze the motion, slow it down to silky smoothness, capture the mood or display the power - there is plenty of scope here.

You will learn about landscape photography techniques; from the use of scenic viewpoints to capture the sense of location and place, to capturing more discrete settings to further refine your techniques. We'll use perspective and viewpoints to explore creative composition

This workshop is perfect both both for beginners and those looking for more advanced techniques. You'll learn about using composition, harnessing contrasting light conditions and how to set up your camera for best results. The location is perfect for tuition in composition, perspective and the use of light.

Throughout the day you will also benefit from tuition in the technical use of your camera. Shutter speeds, the use of filters and appropriate lens choice will contribute to your technical knowledge and understanding.

Bring along your tripod, filters and your choice of lenses.

Glen Affric Photography Workshop Essentials


Please make sure that you bring sufficient warm and waterproof clothing with you and appropriate footwear for forest walks and a day in the outdoors. As we may be out for a full day it's best to be warm and comfortable.

For full day workshops, please bring food and liquid with you sufficient for the day. We may make use of coffee shops for hot drinks depending on the location.


When it comes to photography equiment, there are a few essentials but after that, you have lots of choice. We're never too far away from a car so there's always scope for leaving kit securely whilst we're out and about.

The absolute essentials (apart from your camera of course) are:

  • Tripod
  • Spare Batteries
  • Remote control
  • Spare memory card(s)
  • Lens cloth

Wide angle lenses are great for capturing the mood and the atmosphere of these particular locations but longer lenses are useful for capturing the distant mountains.

Neutral density filters are a great way of slowing down the action of the mighty River Affric and graduated filters will bring out the detail in the sky. Polarising filters are great for sunny days and reflective water.


Booking is very simple... if you would like a 1 to 1 course, then simply give me a call or drop me an email and we'll arrange a suitable date.

If you have a group of like minded friends or would like a day's photography tuition with a pal or a partner, please call me or email me with your preferred dates and we'll put some plans together.

I advertise dates every so often and you'll find these on my Facebook Page. Keep an eye out for dates throughout the year.

Most of my photography Workshops are run in an Outdoor Environment with straightforward hiking on paths and maintained trails. As a qualified Mountain Leader and Sea Kayak Leader, some the Workshops I offer are based in mountainous terrain or on the sea and therefore may be more demanding, both in terms of physical effort and being comfortable in the environment.

To make it easy to plan your Workshop, they are graded to help you to choose the right level for you.

Green graded Workshops are the easiest and are low level walks, including coastal paths and glens. Some workshops may be based close to the roadside, whilst others may involve a walk of up to two miles. For sea kayaking, you may be new to this activity and we will stay close to shore and easy landings.

Blue graded Workshops will offer longer walks in mountainous areas or sea kayaking in coastal areas. Expect to climb the summit of a hill or explore the coast by sea kayak. Be prepared for some moderate changes in weather and we will always prepare accordingly. You should have some previous experience walking in the mountains or in a sea kayak.

Red graded Workshops may see us wild camping on the mountains in order to capture sunsets and sunrises. For sea kayaking, we may have a more challenging day with longer crossings and perhaps wild camping as part of our adventure. You should have experience of wild camping in the mountains and, for sea kayaking, be a competent sea kayaker.

Other Photography Workshops you might be interested in....

Low Light Workshop

The longer nights through late autumn and into early spring provide perfect opportunities for low light photography. Capturing low light photography scenes can be one of the most challenging subjects in photography, yet it can also be one of the most rewarding, producing stunning results.

Lights, water and moody skies are essential elements and my workshops are based around the River Ness or at North Kessock where both locations allow for lots of scope for great results.

Adobe Lightroom Workshop

You take great photographs but don't quite know the secrets to making your images "pop"? Why not join me for an evening of learning how to use Adobe Lightroom. It's a great way to spend the winter evenings and to learn some of the "top tips" for using Lightroom.

These are extremely flexible courses and I can run these as 1 to 1 sessions in the comfort of your own home and at your own PC or alternatively, I can provide tutoring at my home on the Black Isle.
