Scotland Autumn Moods Photography Tour 12 Days | 18th to 30th Oct 2017

Max 3 Participants | Fully Booked

Moonlit-Shepherd

Glencoe Moonlight

With only THREE participants, this workshop not only promises to take you to some of Scotland’s most incredible landscapes, but to focus 100% on your personal journey of development.

A typical day starts with a very early breakfast, then out for a good few hours over sunrise and well into the morning if the weather permits. The sun doesn’t get very high in the sky during the short days and light can be great all day. Simple mantra; if it’s possible to be out, we’re out. On days when the weather forces us to stay in, we’ll be sat processing images. I teach my own methods of creative, expressive processing and we’ll work on fresh images we’ve taken to show the possibilities in the RAW files.

Talisker Beach, Isle of Skye, Scotland, Alister Benn, Landscape Photography,

As the summer ends and Scotland prepares for the harsh and wild winter ahead, a period of change graces the remote western Highlands: The lights softens, the foliage turns and the hillsides become golden.We will immerse ourselves in some of Scotland’s finest landscapes; iconic, yet also intimate and personal: the Isle of Skye.

The diversity of these areas is legendary – from the most dramatic Highland mountains and glens to secluded sandy beaches, rocky headlands and of course spectacular fall colour everywhere we look.

Isle of Lewis & Harris

 

We will immerse ourselves in some of the finest landscapes, iconic, yet also intimate and personal. Scotland’s most famous seascapes in the remote and unique landscape of the Outer Hebrides –  infinite sandy beaches and turquoise-coloured sea produce water colour paintings and picturesque images. Waves crashing on the rocky cliffs under the constantly changing light are perfect for drama, mystery and expression.

During January 2016 I attended Alister and Juanli’s Isle of Skye / Torridon Workshop. Based on the location and the workshop’s description I expected to hone my composition and post-processing skills with images gathered from some beautifully unique landscapes. The workshop well-exceeded my expectations; it was great!
Alister and Juanli are superb hosts. Their goal is to see to it that clients get what they came for, but it really goes beyond that. They take the time to talk with their clients, to learn about them, what their aspirations are in the realm of photography and what they want to do to move closer to that realization. I knew what I came to the workshop for and I got it in spades but most importantly, I left with much more than that. With Alister and Juanli’s patient and insightful guidance and encouragement I have a new found sense how to make my photography a purposeful expression of my artistic vision. To put it another way: I not only got what I wanted, I got what I needed.

The small client group size allowed for the daily itineraries to the flexible based on everyone’s interests. When shooting conditions were favourable we were out-and-about from sun-up to sun-down. On the few days where “gale” pretty much sums it up we worked on post-processing with an aim to creating compelling images that reflect our personal intent when we pushed the shutter button. The rented accommodations were quiet and comfortable and the food, thanks to Chef Juanli, was excellent.

I highly recommend landscape photographers of any level to check-out Alister and Juanli’s workshops. You’ll have lots of fun, you’ll find fulfilment and you’ll be a better photographer for it.
