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 wild camp if you'd like. This allows plenty of time to explore the location properly, experiment with night photography and embed the learning.
Who am I? A photographer and writer about the method and practice of photography. I've even won a few awards for both. It's nice to be acknowledged, but it doesn't prove you can teach. Before moving to Scotland, I worked as a qualified 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? It helps if you have some walking and camping experience to start off, but you don't need to be an expert - we can work on the rest, and adapt the weekend to fit you. You'll also need to bring your camera, spare cards and batteries, plus a remote timer if 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.
Locations and Prices I have some favourite spots, near Glen Coe, the Cairngorms and on the West Coast, depending on your time and travel arrangements. The price is £125 per day per person, but a small groups discount is possible if you book together. Camping equipment loan and transport transfers can be arranged at little or no extra cost.
There are lots of photographers and lots of workshops, so why this one? Individual tuition from someone with real teaching experience, an authentic wild camp experience if you want it and a flexible itinerary... because the workshop is about you, not me! Once we agree a venue based on your needs and wishes, there'll be as much structure as you need to make real progress in your photography.
