Scotland360° Bespoke Landscape Photography Workshops

“Take only memories, leave nothing but footprints”

Where your lasting memories are etched in the realms of time, and forever on camera.

Inspirational, iconic and sometimes elusive - the beauty of the Highlands captured on camera. Stunning scenery and dramatic locations range from the majesty of the hills to the turquoises, blues and emerald waters of the beautiful west coast. Discover beautiful locations including; historic Assynt, the hauntingly beautiful Isle of Skye or iconic Glen Affric. Atmospheric landscapes and panoramic vistas provide limitless photographic opportunities to explore new perspectives and compositions whilst the ever changing light adds to the creative potential.

Dramatic and evocative settings guide you into exploration of composition and perspective to better understand the importance of location.

Discover the secrets of landscape photography – understanding and using light, composition and location to create memorable results. Tuition in panoramic photography of scenic vistas, the use of filters to provide more balanced colour saturation and the application of High Dynamic Range techniques are just some of the topics we can cover. If you would like to learn more about landscape photography techniques and to understand how to take panoramas of scenic vistas, this is the course for you!

My bespoke workshops are designed around the development of your landscape photography in inspirational Scottish Landscapes. With workshops available anywhere in the Scottish Highlands, you will benefit from a varied choice of landscapes ranging from beautiful coastlines to iconic scenery, not forgetting the idyllic Scottish Hebridean islands.

With a huge range of choice, I will guide you with suggestions for appropriate locations as we plan your photographic adventure.

    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.

    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.
