GLENCOE / ARGYLL WORKSHOP

This one day workshop will concentrate on the Glencoe or Argyll region of Scotland, which are among the most impressive locations in Scotland for landscape photography. Great thing about Glencoe and Argyll is that they are easily accessible, being just a 3 hour drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow, but at the same time remote enough to get a perfect LOST IN NORTH feeling. We will explore some of the most amazing locations Glencoe and Argyll have to offer and try to get off the beaten track to see locations not visited by the crowds of tourists. 

You can also choose between two or three day workshops, which will cover both Glencoe and Argyll. Workshop will be specially crafted to suit you in the best way - each experience is unique and we are always looking forward to exploring Scotland in a new way with you. 

 While discovering all the wonders of Glencoe we will focus on mastering the following aspects of landscape photography:

  • Using the camera
  • Composition
  • Focusing
  • Exposure control
  • Using filters
  • Long exposure techniques
  • Post-production in Photoshop/Lightroom
