A three day (three night) residential workshop staying at the delightful Isles of Glencoe Hotel and Leisure Centre (or similar) based on single room occupancy, Bed and Breakfast. The hotel nestles on the side of a peninsula reaching into Loch Leven and boasts a heated swimming pool and leisure centre just in case we have any down time after revewing our images from the day. During the workshop we will explore the grandeur that is Glencoe including the majestic Stob Dearg and Buachaille Etive Mor, Blackrock Cottage, The Three Sisters, Loch Achtriochtan, Glen Etive and Black Mount. We will also travel a little further afield to photograph Kilchurn Castle and Castle Stalker, Glenfinnan Viaduct and the abandoned boat at Corpach.
The workshop will begin on Monday morning at 10.00AM, I would therefore suggest booking an extra nights accommodation on Sunday evening (not included). The workshop will finish on Thursday lunchtime. As well as being guided, with a fantastic ratio of up to 4 clients to one workshop leader, you can also rest assured that you will be able to spend lots of time working on a one to one basis to not only capture some fantastic images, but more importantly to further your skills. Whether you are a beginner who needs to learn some of the more technical aspects of exposure, depth of field and filters, or a more advanced photographer who wants to really hone their compositional skills, your needs will be catered for. Places are limited to four clients to ensure plenty of tuition during your visit. There is the possibility of shared cost return transport from Preston, Lancashire (limited to two clients). The workshop fee includes single occupancy quality hotel accommodation including cooked breakfast, full tuition during the day and post processing sessions in the evening. Technical skills including the use of filters for dramatic effect will be explored. This will cover neutral density filters to slow the shutter speed creating atmospheric water movement, graduated neutral density filters to balance the exposure between the land and sky, and extreme 'big stopper' filters to create wonderful movement in the clouds and water. Technical aspects will be explored including achieving accurate exposure using the manual setting of the camera along with making creative decisions regarding aperture and depth of field.
There really is no better way to develop your craft than by 'getting out there and doing it'. I will provide you with a friendly, fun and informative workshop experience that will, I am sure, leave you with some memorable images to add to your portfolio.
