Scotland 5 days Workshop – Wester Ross & Torridon

20th to 25th January 2018 | 10th – 15th December 2018

Wester Ross and Torridon are the forgotten cousins to the hugely popular Isle of Skye, and honestly, that is both a crime and a true blessing. The former as so many photographer’s miss the hidden gems that the area has to offer, yet a blessing, as almost all the time we have the place to ourselves.

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.

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.

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.
