Shetland 2019 

Shetland is an amazing group of islands sitting in the northern atlantic off the coast of Scotland, with an abundance of opportunities for landscape and wildlife photography.

Being the furthest northern landfall in the U.K, it see's dramatic weather conditions but this gives fantastic light for landscape work. The light is quite special, from raking torch across the land, to wonderful sun rays, the images you capture will bring great work to anyones portfolio. 

We cover all elements of photography on this workshop and see a large majority of the islands. 

As you can imagine we spend plenty of time shooting the coast and practicing long exposure photography.

Small Workshop Group Size

A large part of my courses are about learning to see where an image is going to develop and looking at the landscape with a new eye for composition. As I only take small group's, this gives me plenty of time for one to one tuition. It also means we can easily stop along the routes to make images all through the day.

Workshop Details - 
What you need
Bring along the camera equipment you are most familiar with and have a good understanding of its basic settings. Most cameras work in a similar way so I can help with some of the finer points. 

It can be digital or film, I shoot with both when on my own, the only point I would add here is that it is nice to view the days photographs in the evening all together, digital photography allows for this activity.

Fitness- The photography does require some moderate hill walking so a little fitness is required, a pair of walking boots are
beneficial to the terrain.
Waterproofs - Just in case.
