New photography workshops for 2019/20

First off I’d just like to say a big ‘thank you!’ to everyone who has joined me for workshops, photography days and tours over the last few months.

Black Isle Nature Photography is experiencing its busiest year to date, and I’m delighted to be able to share details of some new workshops and photography days for 2019/2020.

Highland Autumn Woodland Workshops.
Following winning the ‘Wild Woods’ category of the British Wildlife Photography Awards(BWPA) last year, I have had increasing demand for landscape photography workshops. Last year I was included amongst ’10 of Britain’s most exciting landscape photographers’ by The Great Outdoors Magazine, and one of my Scottish woodland images made the coveted opening spread of Outdoor Photography Magazine.

So I am happy to announce details of my Highland Autumn Woodland workshops for autumn 2019. These are 1 or 2 day workshops, aimed at photographers of all abilities. I will take you to some of the Highland’s finest woodlands and forests to photograph this magical time of year, and use my local knowledge to make the absolute most of the weather and conditions. This is a perfect workshop if you are looking to break into landscape photography. Dates20th of October to the 5th November 2019.

Camera Trap Photography Workshops with Terry Whittaker
Terry Whittaker is one of the UK’s top wildlife photographers, and a leader in the field of camera trap and remote wildlife photography. Camera trapping is one of the best ways to really take your photography to the next level, and there is no one better to learn this from than Terry. In August and the first week of September 2019, he will be running camera trap workshops close to my pine marten and red squirrel hides on the Black Isle. These are 2 or 3 day (or more) workshops, which can also be booked alongside my Red Squirrel in Flowering Heather days at the hide. For further information on Terry’s workshops, please visit here

Introduction to Wildlife Photography Workshops

Wildlife photography is gaining in popularity rapidly in the UK! As a result I am increasingly guiding for complete beginners. With this in mind, I have released details of Introduction to Wildlife Photography Workshops . These will cover basic fieldcraft, using wildlife hides, getting the most out of your equipment, autofocus modes for wildlife photography, ethics in wildlife photography, basic fieldcraft and image processing. You will have the opportunity to photograph iconic Scottish species such as red squirrel, crested tit, red grouse, red deer and mountain hare. Dates – late August 2019 to late March 2020 (closed September).

Scottish Winter Wildlife Photography Tours 2019
These are always popular every year. For 2019, they shall take the form of flexible 3, 4 or 5 day tours based around the Black Isle and the Cairngorms National Park. Each tour is tailored to the individual’s needs. I am there to provide photographic tuition at any level you require. We shall aim to photograph as many of Scotland’s iconic species as we can in the time you have. I will be guiding for mountain hare, red squirrel, ptarmigan, crested tit, snow bunting and red deer. There are often opportunities for waxwing, otters and coastal waders also. Dates – early November 2019 to late march 2020.

I will be announcing further workshops, photography days and tours soon, so please check back for more details!
In the meantime, updates can be found on the Black Isle Nature Photography Facebook page, and you can follow me on Twitter or Instagram.

Thanks folks!
