Explore and photograph the wonderful Isle of Skye. I have visited the island on many occasions, and am familiar with both the popular and less known locations - you'll get to explore my favourite spots, taught how to observe and 'see' striking compositions and capture anything we see on the way! As well as great photography on Skye, you have the option of exploring Glencoe and the West Coast of Scotland with me on the way or back from Skye .
I book a cottage in a fabulous location in the heart of the Cuillin mountains for a week and split the week into 2 parts, offering workshops from Saturday to Wednesday and Wednesday to Saturday. This is the shorter version; no less exciting but slightly less flexibility with visiting locations than the longer version.
Sat 16th - Weds 20th November 2019: 4/5 Day Workshop
This 4 day workshop has the promise of great Autumn light with late dawns and early sunsets, ideal for a range of photographic opportunities. We'll be spending time at each location; exploring familiar places and getting more off the beaten track and away from the familiar viewpoints (for example exploring the ridge above The Old Man of Storr, the Trotternish Ridge and potentially a high mountain walk through the Red Cuillins).
Weds 20th - Sat 23rd November 2019: 3 Day Workshop
The 3/4 Day version follows on from the longer one and covers many of the great locations we go to on the longer version and you'll get a real feel for the great landscapes that this amazing island has to offer.
Within the workshops we're able to accommodate a range of knowledge and experience but your primary interest will be a love of the landscape and a wish to interpret it though your photography. We will cover a range of photographic subjects and themes, developing your range of knowledge and skills and explore your own preferences.
You'll be shown how to use natural light and to look for simplicity in composition. You'll be capturing long exposure, night sky and time lapse photography during the workshops and I'll do my best to take your photography to a new level! More than anything, you'll be encouraged to think of ideas that will enable you to develop your own style.
We stay at Allt Dearg Cottage http://www.glendrynoch.co.uk/cottages-allt-dearg/. It’s at an unbeatable location at the base of the Cuillin Mountains on the River Sligachan. It’s designed for self-catering, so we’ll be sharing meals and tasks. It’s got WIFI (if we're lucky), 4G has finally reached Skye and there's mobile phone reception (if you stand outside!). There's also no TV so there's plenty of time for review and processing of images in the evenings!
Prices: €625 PP for 3/4 day and €825 PP for 4 Day
AS WITH ALL OUR WORKSHOPS, THERE'S A DISCOUNT FOR 2 OR MORE BOOKING TOGETHER. PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY FOR THIS OPTION
