We recommend a 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 LEE filters available for use but if you ave 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 and Photoshop so a laptop can be useful if you have one.
Wellington boots, hiking boots etc are recommended and appropriate warm and waterproof clothing for expected weather conditions.
We’ll be staying at the Allt Dearg cottage in Sligachan on the Isle of Skye. Same sex sharing will be required and couples will be given priority for double rooms. Breakfast is included on some days and on other days we will eat breakfast in Portree (not included). Please see our itinerary guide for information. Minibus transport is included but you are welcome to use your own transport to get to the cottage.
Unfortunately, this trip is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with very poor mobility due to uneven ground. A moderate level of agility and fitness is required for each location.
I’ve teamed up with professional photographer Nick Watson for these seven day photography tour of Scotland’s beautiful Isle of Skye. Throughout our time together we’ll be exploring and improving upon the skills and techniques associated with landscape and wildlife photography.
We’ll be visiting several fantastic landscape photographic locations across Skye; Old Man of Storr, Isleornsay, Neist Point, Quirang, Loch Fada, Sleat Peninsula, Loch Coruisk, Fairy Pools, plus, embarking on four boat trips to photograph White Tailed Sea Eagles.*
Accommodation is at the Allt Dearg cottage and bothy near Sligachan which we have exclusive use of. We’ll also provide return minibus travel from meeting points to the Isle of Skye and throughout the tour.
Nick is an extremely talented and creative landscape photographer and we are both sponsored by LEE Filters for landscape photography workshops. This means we’ll have a collection of industry leading filters and accessories for everybody to use throughout our time together.
|3rd March||Minibus pick-ups and travel to Allt Dearg Cottage on the Isle of Skye. Evening landscape photography sessions.|
|4th – 9th March||Our itinerary throughout the week will be quite fluid and based upon the light, weather and tides. In addition to visiting the iconic landscape photography locations on the Isle of Skye we’ve also booked four morning boat trips to photograph the White Tailed Sea Eagles over the Sound of Raasay. During the evenings we can go out for a few beers, talk photography etc or do some Lightroom and Photoshop sessions. Or, if you prefer some time alone, don’t worry – we’re flexible and won’t be offended!|
|10th March||Morning landscape photography and packing up to leave Allt Dearg Cottage and travel back to the north east of England.|
Throughout our time together, Nick and I will be on hand at all times to give you as much or as little guidance and tuition as you’d like. Bring a laptop if you have one and we can spend some time looking at techniques associated with post processing. We’ll both have access to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop on our laptops.
