With Steve Gosling & Peter Cox

An all inclusive workshop I am running in partnership with Irish landscape photographer, Peter Cox and our second workshop in Scotland in 2017. Peter and I have co-led workshops for the last six years and whilst our styles of photography are different we share a common love of the landscape and the power of photography to tell a story. It is also rumoured that we both have a sense of humour so our workshops are usually fun as well as instructive!

Skye is a wonderfully dramatic & picturesque island located off the west coast of Scotland that has been voted 'the 4th best island in the world' by National Geographic magazine.It's a place of extremes, from the craggy outline of the Cuillin to the sheer cliffs and imposing headlands that descend to peaceful bays & beaches. The photographic opportunites it offers are both varied and stunning.

The workshop includes tuition, accommodation, food and transport (including airport pick up and drop off at Inverness).

WHEN

7th to 14th October 2017

We will collect participants from Inverness airport on the 7th October and then travel to our base on Skye - the magnificent Cuillin Hills Hotel with its fantastic views across Portree Bay.

The Dark Cuillin from Glen Sligachan

In general terms the programme will be flexible to make the best of the locations in the prevailing weather & light but during our time on Skye we plan to visit: -

Elgol - on the shores of Loch Scavaig with wonderful views across to the Cuillin Hills;

Loch Coruisk (weather dependent) - a remote loch nestled uner the Cuillin that we will access by boat from Elgol;

The Quirang - a fascinating, rugged landscape on the Trotternish Peninsula;storm light quirang

The Old Man of Storr - a rocky outcrop with views across the Sound of Raasay to the mainland;

Neist Point - with it's remote lighthouse being the most westerly point on the Duirinish Peninsula;

The Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle - a location dominated by the Cuillin Hills, with the water running off them flowing down into the glen via a series of picturesque rocky waterfalls;

The Fairy Glen - a little known, bizarre and delightful Hobbit like landscape of cone shaped hills;

Talisker Bay - a lovely pebble covered beach looking out to a rock stack at the edge of the bay;

Sligachan Bridge - an early 19th century stone bridge crossing a river with fantastic views across to the Cuillin.

 

We will leave Skye on the morning of the 14th and take people back to Inverness Airport for their return home.
