Scotland360 and Skyak Adventures Sea Kayaking Photography Course

Scotland360° and Skyak Adventures have recently run the 2018 Sea Kayaking Photography course .

During the three day course on Skye, we explored photography from a sea kayaking perspective at the Skyak Adventures base at Broadford, at Tarskavaig on the Sleat Peninsula and at Armadale Bay.

From surfing sea kayaks to underwater photography to rolling, there was lots to explore and lots of fun to be had. As well as photography, there was a great deal of use of video this year - think slo-mo, 360 immersive and positioning of video cameras as "bow cams", "cockpit cams" and underwater cams.

And true to form with any Skyak Advenures course, there was a great deal of fun, laughter and balancing games, all courtesy of Gordon Brown, inspirational sea kayak coach who provided the kayaking coaching to complement the photography tutoring.

If you would like to see some of the great results from the course, why not visit the Scotland 360° sea Kayaking Photography Facebook page. Enjoy the photograph albums for Day 2 and Day 3. If you're inspired for sea kayaking photography workshops, then please contact me for details.

Great Glen Canoe Trail 360

Blog Single

It's great to see some output from the Highlands and Islands Enterprise 360 photography courses that I'm running through 2017 and 2018.

Below is an excerpt from the "In Your Element" website which has a great series of 360 photographs taken on the Great Glen Canoe Trail.

"Maybe you’ve heard of the Great Glen Canoe Trail, maybe you’ve paddled it, or maybe you’ve driven through the Great Glen and wondered what it would be like on the water. Our 360 degree photo tour gives you the opportunity to see what it’s like from the paddler’s perspective, as they make their way through this awesome glen"

The link below will take you to the "In Your Element" website where you can explore the photo tour, starting in Fort William, paddling up the lochs of the Great Glen and finishing up in Inverness. Photographed with a Nikon KeyMission waterproof camera mounted on a canoe, this is a great output from the 360° Masterclasses which I am running for Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

The Digital Masterclasses for 360° Photography are bespoke two part courses which I have developed and delivered for Highlands and Islands Enterprise. They are designed for businesses who wish to adopt and utilise the business benefits of 360° photography and video; to advertise, promote and develop their business through the use of these media.
