With Steve Gosling & Peter Cox

An all inclusive, two centre workshop I am running with acclaimed Irish landscape photographer Peter Cox.  Peter and I have co-led workshops for the last seven 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!

Glencoe and Skye are two of my favourite UK locations for landscape photography as they offer diverse and dramatic photographic opportunities - from the openess of Rannoch Moor to the drama of the Cuillins, from the historic Castle Stalker to the rugged Quirang.

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

WHEN

22nd to 31st October 2019

Glencoe is one of the most magnificent areas of natural beauty in the whole of Britain. The mountains are built from some of the oldest sedimentary and volcanic strata in the world. It's a picturesque and dramatic landscape that encapsulates why photographers are drawn to the Scottish Highlands - mountains, lochs, moorland are all waiting to be captured with our cameras.

Skye is also wonderfully dramatic and picturesque. This island, situated off the west coast of Scotland, has been voted the '4th Best Island in the World' by National Geographic magazine. It is a place of extremes - from the craggy outline of the Cuillin that dominate the landscape to the cliffs and imposing headlands that descend down to peaceful bays & beaches. Its changing weather patterns can create wonderfully atmospheric lighting conditions for photography and given the right conditions Skye can be an ideal location for glorious sunrises and sunsets.

OUTLINE ITINERARY

We will collect participants from Glasgow Airport on 22nd October and then travel to Glencoe, where our base will be the Ballachulish Hotel with its fantastic views across Loch Linnhe. This lovely hotel is ideally situated for exploring all that the area has to offer - Rannoch Moor, the majestic mountain Buchaille Etive Mor, Loch Leven & the Pap of Glencoe and the magnificently located Castle Stalker.

On the 25th October we will travel to Skye. Our base there is the luxurious Cuillin Hills Hotel with its stunning views across the Bay of Portree.

Whilst on Skye we will spend our time photographing some of the well known locations e.g. Sligachan Bridge and Elgol with their views across to the Cuillin, the lighthouse at Neist Point, the Quirang (a fascinating landscape on the Trotternish Peninsula), the Old Man of Storr and the Fairy pools in Glen Brittle. We will also visit some lesser known locations that offer a variety of photographic potential and will give participants the chance to return home with something a little different.

We will return to Glencoe for one night (the 30th) before driving participants back to Glasgow airport on the 31st so they can catch their flights home.

COST

The number of participants is limited to 10 and the cost per person is £4400. This includes transport to & from the airport as well as during the workshop, all food (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and accommodation as well as tuition from two world class, award winning landscape photographers.
