Outer Hebrides

 Landscape and Seascape Photography Workshops in The Outer Hebrides  with Steve Walton

Outer Hebrides photography workshops 

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.  The workshop will take in all of the iconic locations of the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Scalpay, and more.  My Outer Hebrides photography workshops groups are intentionally small so that everyone has ample opportunity for periods of individual tuition if required.  Groups are restricted to four participants only.

Open to all abilities,  the emphasis is on improving  your existing skills with individual tuition with the opportunity to explore the Isles of Harris, Lewis & Scalpay and return with a superb portfolio of landscape & seascape images.

Personal  pick-up and drop-off at Stornoway Airport or ferry terminals can be arranged.  Locations on the tour are reasonably accessible but a moderate level of fitness is absolutely necessary.

Image reviews in the welcoming Harris Hotel bar in the evenings are a great social time for the group after a day of photography.

Sunrises and sunsets, deserted Hebridean beaches, abandoned crofts, the awe-inspiring standing stones at Callanish and surrounding sites are our locations for the workshop.  Sunrise at Callanish and sunsets on west-facing beaches will provide you with an unforgettable workshop experience.
