The 2020 series of workshops is taking shape with a number of courses now advertised scheduled and others in preparation.
New for 2020 is the Adobe Lightroom Editing Workshop. Adobe Lightroom is one of the photographer’s “go to” software packages for post processing and this workshop will take you through the complete workflow from memory card to the final, finished result.
Making use of the evening light, the ever popular Low Light Photography Workshop runs in February and we're hoping to catch the spectacular springtime sunsets at North Kessock in April.
April also sees a Beginners evening workshop running over two evenings. Based on the Ness Islands in Inverness, this foundation workshop is those starting on their photographic journey, and those who would like to better understand camera controls.
May sees full day landscape and mountain photography workshops, with the potential for magical springtime light to be harnessed in iconic locations. Join me on the mountains in Sutherland, with long distance views to the Sutherland hills and the Outer Isles, whilst in beautiful Glen Affric we can use scale to define and discover the secrets of perspective.
In June, I'm introducing a new Photography Tour which spends a day visiting inspirational and photogenic locations on the way to Skye. Kintail, Eilean Donan, Skye, Lochalsh and Plockton are all options for this tour which is open to all photographic abilities.
Brand new for 2020 are the two trips in association with Hebridean Adventures, on board the MV Monadhliath. The Sea Kayaking Expedition is planned for July and visits the Summer Isles, the Shiant Islands and the east coast of Harris. This is a unique way of discovering the islands of the Minch, paddling in waters rich in cetaceans and seals, so we never know what we might encounter while out on the water!
And in August, I'm delighted I'm delighted to be leading a 5 day guided photography expedition, again in partnership with Hebridean Adventures on board the MV Monadhliath.
There's more to come, with new locations and topics. Look out for more in Skye and Wester Ross in particular and new venues for mountain photography.
