"Which Way Do We Go" Red Deer, Glen Etive, Highlands, Scotland. Ben Nichols Photography

GLENCOE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

Have you always wanted to capture the iconic Landscapes around Glencoe? But have never been sure where to go? or wanted to capture the stunning scenery you’ve seen In James Bond Skyfall film?

On this Glencoe photography workshop, we will visit some of Scotland’s finest and famous scenery. There’s a reason for a lot of car adverts and commercials being filmed around this area. It provides some of the most impressive backdrops in the UK.

On this workshop I will show you how I plan my locations. The camera skills I use to take better images. And processing skills I use in Lightroom.

I will show you how I use LEE Filters to dramatically help the proper exposure of images first time. Along with tips on how to create creative long exposures.  

THE GRADING OF THIS WORKSHOP IS EASY

This is a relatively easy workshop, for people of all levels of photography. Most locations having easy access from the side of the road and require little walking over good hill trails. However, a couple of locations will require an amount of walking and accents of upwards to 450 metres.

With the time of the year being November, a good sturdy pair of waterproof boots are necessary along with good waterproof jackets and trousers. Hats and gloves are vital to keep the cold out and a pair of walking sticks is very handy.

GLENCOE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP DETAILS

This is a self-drive trip starting and finishing at our base at the Onich Hotel.  (https://www.onichhotel.co.uk/) in Fort William. Depending on covid restrictions at the time there will be space in my own car to drive to locations should you wish. 

The Onich Hotel offers great accommodation along with great breakfasts. There are also a number of
places to try out local cuisine as well.

Being based here also gives us great opportunities for dusk and dawn photography starting at a very civilised 6.30 a.m. departure. This will comfortably take us in and around the Glencoe and Rannoch Moor positions for sunrise, returning for breakfast around 10.00 a.m.

After breakfast, we will drive to another location in preparation for lunch before moving to our evening location to get setup in position and ready for the sunset, then returning around 5.30 p.m.

If time permits during the day and evening there may be opportunities to view some of the day’s images and do a bit of Lightroom training before heading out for dinner. During the course of the workshop there will be various tutorials and
group critique sessions.
