Scotland360° and Skyak Adventures Sea Kayaking Photography Course, Isle of Skye

12th to 14th September 2016 Photography, Sea Kayaking
Read More
"....Angus Mackie and Gordon Brown laid on calm reflective seas and warm sunshine as they taught us about kayaking photography. Superb days with lots of fun and learning. My gear is all dried and put away and I have now had a chance to reflect on our 3 days. I really enjoyed our time together and I felt I learnt a lot about photographing kayaking and scenery from a kayak. Angus and Gordon were such entertaining and instructive coaches and everyone was such good company. I think I will need to renew my acquaintance with Kyle Rhea sometime soon to see if I can master a low brace turn without requiring a snorkel! I am itching to to try some of Angus's suggested editing techniques and maybe even a stitched panorama...."

SSSKEG and Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Course

Read More
This year saw the second Scotland360° sea kayaking photography course run for SSKEG, based at Benderloch and Appin. Building on the success of last year, this course was once again designed to allow everyone to produce great results from their cameras whilst sea kayaking and to get the best out of their own photography.

Continuing with the castles theme from 2015, I chose the wonderfully scenic venue of Castle Stalker in Port Appin which provided a focal point of interest as well as a landing spot on the neighbouring island. This allowed time on shore as well as in kayaks, to cover composition, lighting, action shots, technical use of the camera as well as making time to review the output.

Scotland360° Scottish Sea Kayaking E-Group (SSKEG) Photography Weekend, Moidart

5th and 6th September 2015Sea Kayaking
Read More
The weekend of 5th and 6th September was one of fun and photography at Castle Tioram and Strontian. I ran the first SSKEG photography weekend which proved to be both popular and successful.

Take nine very capable sea kayakers armed with a variety of cameras, add in the scenic location of Castle Tioram and Loch Moidart and top it with a weekend blessed with great light for photography and the result was just short of 2000 photographs. Still water and great backdrops, moving water for action, bouncy water for fun… Oh, and did I mention that there was a great deal of fun and laughter as well?

Skyak Adventures and Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Course

23rd and 24th April 2015Photography Courses, Sea Kayaking
Read More
In April of this year, Skyak Adventures and Scotland360° ran our first sea kayaking photography course.

Sea kayaking offers great ways of accessing and exploring some of the most scenic coastlines and photographic locations in Scotland and our course offers a unique blend of practical instruction in photography both on and off the water, as well as tailored sea kayak coaching from Gordon Brown, the UK's foremost sea kayak coach.

No technical photography skills are required; this is a course for participants to learn to produce great results from their cameras whilst sea kayaking and to get the best out of their own photography.

About Scotland360°

Welcome to the Scotland360° website from Angus Mackie.

Featuring web based, interactive images and video of Scotland and the Scottish outdoors, there are several key themes running through the site.

Scottish mountain photography, sea kayaking photography around Scotland's beautiful and varied coastline, Scottish landscapes and iconic locations in Scotland are all showcased within the website.

Compiled from images taken over the last 35 years of living, working and exploring in the Highlands, this website is a resource, a shop window and a travelogue featuring Scotland as I know and enjoy it. I hope my photography inspires you to enjoy the land and the locations as much as I do.
