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.

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.

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?

A day for enjoying the view and the skerries.
