Workshops and Phototours
Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Workshops and Phototours
Sea kayaking and the Scottish coastline provide the photographer with an ever changing canvas. Dramatic lighting, imposing scenery and atmospheric landscapes; all set against a backdrop of truly spectacular locations.
Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Workshops
Scotland360° photography workshops will provide tuition in improving your photography skills in a sea kayak, matching weather and light to location and perspective. We will explore the importance of location, providing advice and tuition on the technical aspects of cameras as well as the most appropriate camera modes to use. Choice of focal length appropriate to the landscape will then guide you into exploring composition and perspective for this unique form of photography.
Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Phototours
Our phototours are for those who would prefer to journey by sea kayak in some of the best coastal scenery in Scotland. Our journey allows us time, not only to savour and capture great views in spectacular locations, but also to explore composition and creative photography from a sea kayak and perhaps also from that stunning viewpoint on the shore, reached by no other means?
Scotland360° bespoke sea kayaking photography workshops and phototours are available in some of the most iconic coastal scenery in Scotland. Within a 60 mile radius of Inverness, west coast locations include Torridon, Applecross and Plockton whilst east coast choices encompass Cromarty, Fortrose and the Moray coastline. Perhaps you have a location of your own in mind? Please contact me and we can explore the possibilities.
Angus is enthusiastic and friendly as well as professional. He believes that the learning experience should be fun as well as supportive allowing time to explore and understand location and how to use this to best effect. As a qualified sea kayak leader, Angus will also plan your day to take account of weather, tide and ability. Throughout the day Angus ensures that there is time for discussion and answering your questions.
If you have some experience of sea kayaking and would like to better understand how to compose and capture great images and photography from a sea kayak, these workshops are for you! Please provide details of your experience and ability when booking so that we may plan your day and develop your photography skills.
