Scotland 7 Days Workshop – Winter Light
2nd to 9th December 2017 – Fully Booked
9th to 16th December 2018 – Available
Beaches measured in miles rather than yards, turquoise coloured water, some of the oldest rocks in the world, glaciated mountains and majestic Glens. Galen Rowell spoke great words of wisdom when he told us to seek out the transitions in the landscape to make images full of glory and power – here, in this remote corner of the Scottish Highlands, the mountains meet the sea – serene, wild, ominous, beautiful.
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. 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.
With only 3 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.

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.)
