Description

Overview

I’ve teamed up with professional landscape photographer Nick Watson for this photography tour of Scotland’s beautiful Isle of Skye. We are both UK Brand Ambassadors for Formatt-Hitech, so we’ll have a collection of industry leading filters and accessories for everybody to use throughout our time together. But if you have your own, please also bring them.

We’ll be visiting several fantastic landscape photographic locations across the Isle of Skye, for example; Old Man of Storr, Isleornsay, Neist Point, Quirang, Loch Fada, Fairy Pools, plus, embarking on boat trips to photograph White Tailed Sea Eagles.  We’ll also take some time to photograph the wonderfully characterful Highland Cattle! Throughout our time together we will be exploring and improving upon the skills and techniques associated with landscape and wildlife photography.

Recommended Equipment

We recommend an interchangeable lens mirrorless or DSLR camera with wide angle and telephoto lenses. Something around 300 – 400mm for the latter will be ideal.

A tripod and head is essential for the landscape photography. We have a range of Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters available for use but if you have your own, please bring them too. Spare batteries and memory cards are absolutely essential. We can do some sessions on photo processing using Adobe Lightroom, Capture One and Photoshop so a laptop can be useful if you have one.

Wellington boots, hiking boots etc are recommended and (lots of!) appropriate warm and waterproof clothing for the expected weather conditions.

What our clients have to say…

I just wanted to thank you both for putting together a great week on Skye. As ever, it was energising and exhausting at the same time, but I’ve come away with some great images and better memories. I’ll need to go back for the eagle picture that I wanted, but that’s a good thing, because I love the whole area.

Accommodation

We’ll be staying at the Allt Dearg Cottage on the Isle of Skye. Same sex sharing will be required but rooms are large and comfortable. Please note, this is a self-catering trip. Broadford and Portree are well stocked for shops, pubs / restaurants and take-aways and we’ll be passing through these small towns regularly.
