Waterfalls and Waves Photography Workshop

Discover the range of photographic possibilities in Scotland's lochs, rivers and shorelines. Capture the dynamic moods, motion and movement of water. Freeze the action in sharp relief or slow it to silky softness. Explore reflections and the use of filters, with tuition in the most appropriate camera settings to use when photographing water.

Inverness is perfectly placed for access to a wide range of magnificent venues for our Scotland360° “Waterfalls and Waves” photography workshop themes.

Scenic Seascapes Workshop – Easter Ross

Tarbat Ness and nearby Rockfield in Easter Ross are packed with potential for photographing and capturing the power of the sea.

Experience the power of the waves crashing over rocks, providing perfect opportunities for learning how to freeze the action - or perhaps developing your photography techniques for slowing down shutter speeds to produce a sense of motion.

Tarbat Ness offers rocky shores and skerries alive with waves and motion as the North Sea meets the rugged headland. Big skies, constantly changing cloud formations, infinite changes in light and long distance views provide perfect perspective for framing and composition.

Tarbat Ness lighthouse, one of the original Stevenson lighthouses and the third tallest lighthouse in Scotland, provides a tremendous focal point for photography. Throughout the day, we will use this as a feature to explain and to develop your understanding of composition and perspective.

This photography workshop is packed with inspiration for developing your coastal landscape photography skills. Waves, skerries and the power of the sea contrast with slipways, coves and coastal fishing villages.

Throughout the day this we will provide tuition in the technical use of your camera. Shutter speeds, the use of filters and appropriate lens choice will contribute to your technical knowledge and understanding.

This particular location lends itself well to tuition in composition, perspective and the use of light.

Waterfalls and Wooded Glens Workshop – The Black Isle

tarbat ness, portmahomack, breaking wave, sea, coastline, Moray Firth

The Fairy Glen, at Rosemarkie on the Black Isle, provides the perfect setting for photographing a particularly picturesque waterfall. The walk to the waterfall through a delightful semi natural woodland, winds its way alongside the Rosemarkie Burn.

Springtime and Autumn present us with a myriad of photographic opportunities within the woodland and alongside the river. Spring leaves and flowers provide a fresh, colourful backdrop to the river in contrast to the muted colours of autumn.

Lower light levels in the woodland provide us with opportunities for setting longer shutter speeds to slow down the water and produce a silky water effect – a classic photography output..

After 2km, we’ll reach the mill pond and the two waterfalls within the Fairy Glen and the real interest begins. A short section of path separates the two falls and there are a number of viewpoints and perspectives to enjoy and to explore.

This workshop will develop your skills in the technical use of your camera. Shutter speeds, the use of filters and appropriate lens choice will contribute to your technical knowledge and understanding.

Experience Level

Waves and Waterfalls Photography Workshops are suitable for beginners and more advanced photographers alike.

Grading

Waves and Waterfalls Photography Workshops are graded as "Green" or "Easy". We may walk up to 5km during the course of the day allowing maximum benefits from the venues. Suitable footwear and outdoor cothing should be worn.

In coastal locations with the potential for rocks and steep drops to some shores, there will be safety factors to consider. These will be advised at the start of the day.

This series of workshops can be run as full or half day sessions. Timings may vary in some locations to allow us to make best use of light, particularly if sunset and sunrise options are possible.

We normally meet at, or close to, the location. Meeting points and times will be advised at the time of booking. Starting with an overview of the day, I'm always keen to understand what you would like to achieve during the Workshop - this ensures that we maximise the benefits of the day. However, I also have many ideas and options for you and there is always scope for blending your ideas and my suggestions.

We will normally cover several viewpoints during the workshop, all within easy reach of the meeting point.

Group Cost:

£40 to £80 per person

1 to 1 Cost:

£230

Full Day Workshop - £80 per person for groups of up to six people.

Half Day / Evening Workshop - £40 per person for groups of up to six people.

However if you would like to plan a bespoke 1 to 1 workshop with me, I would be delighted to assist in compiling an evening to suit your individual requirements.

The cost of the 1 to 1 workshops is £230.

Waterfalls and Waves Photography Workshop Essentials

Image

Please make sure that you bring sufficient warm and waterproof clothing with you and appropriate footwear for coastal paths and shorelines. As we may be out for a full day it's best to be warm and comfortable.

For full day workshops, please bring food and liquid with you sufficient for the day. We may make use of coffee shops for hot drinks depending on the location.

Image

When it comes to photography equiment, there are a few essentials but after that, you have lots of choice. We're never too far away from a car so there's always scope for leaving kit securely whilst we're out and about.

The absolute essentials (apart from your camera of course) are:

  • Tripod
  • Spare Batteries
  • Remote control
  • Spare memory card(s)
  • Lens cloth
  • Wide angle lenses are great for capturing the mood and the atmosphere of these particular locations but longer lenses are useful for distancing yourself from waves crashing on rocks!

    Neutral density filters are a great way of slowing down the action and graduated filters will bring out the detail in the sky. Polarising filters are great for sunny days and reflective water.

    Most of my photography Workshops are run in an Outdoor Environment with straightforward hiking on paths and maintained trails. As a qualified Mountain Leader and Sea Kayak Leader, some the Workshops I offer are based in mountainous terrain or on the sea and therefore may be more demanding, both in terms of physical effort and being comfortable in the environment.

    To make it easy to plan your Workshop, they are graded to help you to choose the right level for you.

    Green graded Workshops are the easiest and are low level walks, including coastal paths and glens. Some workshops may be based close to the roadside, whilst others may involve a walk of up to two miles. For sea kayaking, you may be new to this activity and we will stay close to shore and easy landings.

    Blue graded Workshops will offer longer walks in mountainous areas or sea kayaking in coastal areas. Expect to climb the summit of a hill or explore the coast by sea kayak. Be prepared for some moderate changes in weather and we will always prepare accordingly. You should have some previous experience walking in the mountains or in a sea kayak.

    Red graded Workshops may see us wild camping on the mountains in order to capture sunsets and sunrises. For sea kayaking, we may have a more challenging day with longer crossings and perhaps wild camping as part of our adventure. You should have experience of wild camping in the mountains and, for sea kayaking, be a competent sea kayaker.

    Other Photography Workshops you might be interested in....

    Low Light Workshop

    The longer nights through late autumn and into early spring provide perfect opportunities for low light photography. Capturing low light photography scenes can be one of the most challenging subjects in photography, yet it can also be one of the most rewarding, producing stunning results.

    Lights, water and moody skies are essential elements and my workshops are based around the River Ness or at North Kessock where both locations allow for lots of scope for great results.
