Personal Photography Tuition
What's on offer? Bespoke photographic tuition for individuals and small groups in Scotland, tailored to your photographic needs and outdoors experience.
For trips of 2 or more days, we can also wild camp if you'd like. This allows plenty of time to explore the location properly, experiment with night photography and embed the learning.
"a talented and patient teacher"
Who am I? A photographer and writer about the method and practice of photography. I've even won a few awards for both. Before moving to Scotland, I worked as a teacher (arts based to degree level) and have many years of informal outdoors experience. I've been taking and making photos for over 3 decades, working across genres and styles. Much of my work now involves photographing people and landscapes for outdoors magazines. For more info, take a look here or browse the website.
What will you need? You'll need to bring your camera, spare cards and batteries, plus a remote timer if we are camping and you want to make the most out of the night photography session. A tripod and some graduated filters can be provided if you don't have them. It’s useful if you have a little outdoor and photography experience, but you don't need to be an expert. I work with people at all levels and adapt the trip to fit you.
Price: The price is £150 per day per person, but a small groups discount is possible if you book together. I concentrate on 1:2:1 ratio, or small groups that book together. Camping equipment loan and transport transfers can be arranged at little or no extra cost.
Location: The venue list is growing all the time, but I do have some favourite spots near Glen Coe, the Cairngorms and on the West Coast. Where we end up depends on your time, travel arrangements and of course the weather.
There are lots of photo workshops, so why this one? Personal tuition and guiding from someone with a teaching background, a flexible itinerary, and an authentic wild camp experience if you want it. The workshop is about you, not me! Some people are looking for skills development, others are more focused on eye-catching or unusual locations. I design your workshop based on your needs and wishes.
