Harris and Lewis: Our 2016 photo tour of The Outer Hebrides will take place from 17th-21st October 2016. As usual we are based at the very comfortable Harris Hotel in Tarbert, ideally situated for exploring the islands of Harris, Lewis, Scalpay and the Uists. Limited places are available for the tour. As numbers are strictly limited to four attendees only, the group is intentionally small to ensure maximum attention and individual tuition by Steve. This tour will provide you with an unforgettable experience, the islands are a wonderful destination for landscape and travel photography. You will gain experience and understanding of long exposure techniques and the use of graduated filters to control and balance tones at many varied locations around the islands. We will photograph mountains, beaches, seascapes and the local populations in a social documentary style. Many of our previous guests have compiled their images into high quality self published books such as Blurb or Bob Books. These books are a visual record of the tour and make wonderful gifts for friends and relatives.
The long traditions of tweed weaving, fishing and farming are the mainstays of the islands’ population and provide a rich source of opportunity for social documentary photography. Days out on location can be long, we will have sunrises and sunsets to photograph and the ever-changing light and weather in between. You will take increased skills, images of iconic Hebridean landscapes and the priceless memories of a wonderful experience where spontaneity and fun are guaranteed!
The cost (not including return air/ferry fares) is £1299. Please contact me for full details of the itinerary and booking information for the tour of Harris & Lewis.
