Scotland Autumn Workshop | Max 5 Participants | Wester Ross & Torridon, Isle of Skye, Perthshire
15th – 25th Oct 2020 – Available | 19th – 29th Oct 2019 – Full
The colour palette of autumn is magical – turquoise water-coloured sea, intricately textured white sandy beaches, smooth rock surfaces and dramatic sea stacks, all in the changeable light and weather conditions.
It is simply perfect inspiration to ignite our creativity and emotions. The sense of remoteness and solitude are tangible and grow with each passing mile – this is a landscape to “be” in and we will allow ourselves the chance to experience every nuance.
Photography is a wonderful marriage of art and craft, and we will focus on both on this 10 days Scotland Autumn Workshop. Of course we want to take you to many of the iconic locations, but we also have a choice of lesser known intimate and unique locations, and these offer real opportunities to produce more personal and individual renditions of our spectacular and amazing landscape.

Wester Ross & Torridon
This is an area that very much lies under the photographic shadow of its next door neighbour, the Isle of Skye. For the people who know and love Torridon and Wester Ross this is something of a blessing as it means solitude and peace. This is a very complex area, made up of a huge corner of remote and often difficult to access glens, gullies and huge mountains. The massive Loch Maree occupies a huge fjord gouged out by the last glaciers and provides an access route through the mountains to the sea at Gairloch.
To the south, Glen Torridon carves its own route through to Loch Torridon and the little village at its head. The whole area is remarkably diverse, with some of Scotland’s most Alpine mountains, native Scots Pine Tree forests, rivers, lochs and mile after mile of both sandy and rocky coastline, punctuated with caves, rock arches and sea stacks. (The sand on the beaches is mostly red due to the prevalent local Torridon Sandstone rocks.)
Alister and Juanli lived in this area when they returned to Scotland and know it intimately.
Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is a truly remarkable island in an already exceptional area, the West Highlands of Scotland. From rugged glens, jagged mountain ridges, huge sea cliffs, crystal clear rivers and drama at every turn, come rain or shine the isle delivers time and again. It is no coincidence it hosts some of Scotland’s most iconic and popular locations.
However, for those keen to seek out less well worn paths, this huge island offers plenty of opportunity to explore and discover new compositions.
Key Areas Include: The Sleat Peninsular, Elgol, The Red Cuillin, The Black Cuillin, Sligachan, Trotternish, The Old Man of Storr, The Quiraing, Neist Point & Talisker Bay.
Alister Benn & Juanli Sun now live on the island and simply love it.
