Spring - Torridon and Wester Ross Photography Workshop

Spring - Torridon and Wester Ross
Scottish Highlands

6th - 12th April 2019

 

It’s no surprise to those who visit Scotland that it repeatedly gets nominated as the best place in the UK for landscape photography. With mountains aplenty and picturesque lochs, islands, shorelines, rivers, waterfalls and woodland there really is no better place to learn about - and improve your landscape photography skills.

This 5-day / 6-night workshop will suit those photographers who prefer more dynamic weather pictures. Spring in the Highlands can be a tumultuous and dynamic time of year with regular rain showers, sun, shafts of light-rays, rainbows - and even snow! This is a real opportunity for people who are passionate about the outdoors to indulge and immerse themselves in an amazing 5 days of landscape photography heaven - with tuition provided by Mark throughout the whole 5 days.

Itinerary.

This workshop will be based in Gairloch in the Scottish Highlands. In order to get the maximum 5 days out of this workshop you will arrive the evening prior to the start of the workshop on Saturday 6th April and leave on Friday 12th April (overnight stays for these days are included in the price). The workshop will officially start on Sunday 7th April after breakfast when Mark will start with an introductory talk before opening the floor to any questions.

For the next five days, participants will be transported to numerous amazing locations around the area where Mark will help you explore composition and technical skills in order to make successful landscape images. There will be opportunities for photography throughout the entire day due to the time of year and Mark will be on hand to answer any questions and issues you may be experiencing. There will also be time for processing your images using Mark’s laptop (or your own) where he will explain exactly how to get the very best out of your images using Adobe Lightroom Classic software.

As this workshop is limited to just 4 participants there will be plenty of time for one-to-one tuition and to discuss photography at whatever level you are - beginner or experienced amateur.

The workshop will officially close on Thursday evening with a de-brief of your experience over celebratory drinks. Participants will check out on Friday morning after breakfast.
