“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.

My "Bespoke Series" Workshops are the ultimate in flexibility and may be set anywhere in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. We can plan single day workshops to explore settings and location whilst multi day workshops allow the development of themes with time to review photographs in the evening.
I will plan your experience with you by phone, email or Skype to ensure I fully understand your requirements.
Timings are completely flexible to allow best use of weather, light and location.
The beautiful and iconic locations for my Bespoke Workshops range from the rugged and haunting beauty of Glencoe to the endless sandy beaches of the west coast, the machairs and magic of the Outer Hebridean islands to the captivation of the Isle of Skye. To the north lie Sutherland and the North Coast 500 just waiting to be explored. Closer to Inverness, the Highland capital, we have iconic Glen Affric, home to native pinewoods and the massive grandeur of the Cairngorms National Park.
All the Bespoke Series workshops are suitable for beginners and more advanced photographers alike.
Please refer to my Workshop Gradings further down this page for details on grading. Suitable footwear and outdoor cothing should be worn.

Depending on the location, meeting points will be advised at the time of booking. Starting with an overview of the workshop, I'm always keen to understand what you would like to achieve during our time together - this ensures that we maximise the benefits of the workshop. However, I also have many ideas and options for you and there is always scope for blending your ideas and my suggestions.
We will normally cover several viewpoints during the workshop, all within easy reach of the meeting point.
