The Outer Hebrides are a landscape photographer’s paradise. Unique mountain geology, the finest beaches on earth, mysterious prehistoric sites, a strong cultural identity and the changing light of North Atlantic weather patterns set these islands apart. I have been leading photography workshops in the Outer Hebrides for several years. Our Wild Light Photography Workshop groups are deliberately small with a maximum of four like-minded photographers and myself to guide you. Open to all abilities, the emphasis is on learning and improving your existing skills with ample individual tuition and a lot of spontaneous fun and ‘off piste’ exploration thrown in. Accommodation at the lovely Harris Hotel in Tarbert, breakfasts, evening meals and transport to locations during the workshop, pick-up and drop-off at Stornoway Airport and ferry terminals is included. All dietary requirements can be accommodated. Image reviews and post processing tuition in the welcoming hotel bar before and after dinner are always a great social time for the group after a day of photography and many of my guests have gone on to become good friends with each other following the workshops.
Sunrises and sunsets at dramatic white sand Hebridean beaches, deserted crofts and the awe-inspiring standing stones at Callanish and it’s satellite sites are our locations for the workshop. Sunrise at Callanish will provide you with an unforgettable experience and we often follow that with an equally unforgettable sunset at Luskentyre on the same day. Eilean Glas lighthouse at sunset is well worth the walk out across the moorland on the peat cutter’s track and the concrete hulk of the WW1 coal barge Cretetree are just two of the features we will visit on the little island of Scalpay. The workshop also includes a visit to see the most famous of all traditional Harris Tweed weavers at work in his weaving shed, Donald John MacKay MBE.
Join me for five days of photography and fun in the Outer Hebrides in 2017. August and November dates are booking now, I look forward to greeting you on the Islands and taking you on an inspirational photography tour to remember.
