Workshops

Join me in Scotland’s great outdoors to develop your landscape photography skills. Learn from tutorials, one-to-one tuition in the field and critique sessions which will be delivered in a positive way with the intention of inspiring you, as opposed to denting your confidence!

My workshops are suited to beginners and more experienced photographers alike. I believe that the photographer is more important than the camera and so I will help you to improve your skills regardless of the technology you are using. The emphasis will be on perfecting your images in-camera as opposed to in post-production.

Most of the locations we will visit will be within a short walk from the vehicle, and with no major ascents. However, we will encounter some rough terrain and so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

Please browse the workshop packages below and the frequently asked questions for further details.

Alternatively please contact me for a customised quote for a bespoke one-to-one package where you choose the dates and the location.

I’ve loved exploring Scotland with a camera in my hand since early childhood and I look forward to sharing my experience and enthusiasm for photography in some of the best landscapes Scotland has to offer.

The Black Isle

Castle Craig, Black Isle

Please contact me to arrange a date
Price: £200 for an individual | £250 for 2 to 4 people

The Black Isle is a relatively undiscovered gem just a stone’s throw from the Highland capital of Inverness across the Kessock Bridge, and a short detour from the North Coast 500. Whether you live in the area or are here on holiday, I will take you to some beautiful locations on this scenic peninsula during this one day workshop, most of them away from the tourist hot-spots. I’ve lived here since 2013 and have spent the last six years exploring this corner of the Highlands, discovering the coastline, sites of historical interest and peaceful woodlands and waterfalls in amongst the seasonal changes of the agricultural landscape. It’s difficult to do justice to the Black Isle in a single day and so you may find yourself wanting to return!

Isle of Skye

Reflections, Loch Cill Chriosd, Skye

Please contact me to arrange a date
Price: £300 for an individual | £350 for 2 to 4 people

The Isle of Skye is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes in Scotland. The island is understandably very popular and has become much busier in recent years. On this one day workshop, I will take you to some stunning locations away from the tourist hot-spots but still with beautiful views towards the Cuillin mountains. I first visited Skye when I was only nine years old and have been inspired to return countless of times over the years to photograph the mountainous and coastal scenery which will no doubt appeal to any landscape photographer.

Please contact me to arrange a date
Price: £300 for an individual | £350 for 2 to 4 people

Wester Ross is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the Highlands. On this one day workshop, we’ll visit some beautiful lochs, bays and beaches with spectacular mountainous backdrops. I first visited Wester Ross when I was a very young child and have returned to this region time and again throughout my life to capture some of the finest scenery in Scotland which will no doubt appeal to any landscape photographer.

Assynt and Coigach

Ben Mor Coigach and Loch Cul Dromannan

Please contact me to arrange a date
Price: £300 for an individual | £350 for 2 to 4 people

The region of Assynt and Coigach in the north west Highlands is home to some spectacular coastal and mountain scenery. This is one of my favourite areas for landscape photography, particularly in autumn, when the landscape turns to a beautiful palette of green, orange and gold, and the silence is broken only by the sound of stags rutting on the hillsides. The mountains aren’t particularly high but what they lack in height, they make up for in character.
