Glencoe Landscape Photography Workshop
Landscape Photography Workshop – Glencoe in the Highlands of Scotland is up there as one of the top 5 places to photograph stunning landscapes in the world. It has everything a photographer could ever dream of. Stunning mountain ranges. Cascading mountain waterfalls. Wildlife is more beautiful than you could ever imagine. Wild Deer and huge Stags that are totally comfortable in the presence of humans. Some will even eat treats out of your hands. Jaw-droppingly beautiful and so fantastic for pictures.
Glencoe is so beautiful that even some of James Bonds blockbuster "Skyfall" was filmed there. If you've seen the film you'll recognise the spots when I take you there. We can even replicate a couple of famous poses (guns not provided 😁)
There is nothing like the early morning light to capture a stunning picture of Buachaille Etive Mor. It's the shot every photographer must have in their portfolio. It's a classic shot, but since Buachaille Etive Mor is an icon of Glencoe it's a shot you must have.
“Hi All, Just back from Glencoe & wanted to share my experience as an attendee of one of Gary's courses. Have to say as a relative 'newbie' to the world of Photography the course was fantastic. Fantastic locations, hospitality, & knowledge. All in all the course was worth every penny & went above & beyond my expectations. I learnt lots about composition, lighting & even features on my camera which I didn't know about so thank you very much. A big shout out also to Paula & the other Gary for all your help & support along the way. I have so many images to share & following is a link to those I've uploaded to my webpage. If anyone is considering going on one of Gary's courses then I can highly recommend. Once again many thanks - John” See Johns pictures HERE
Contains loads of images from my latest IOS & Glencoe Workshop (Oct 2019)
There are stunning landscapes to be had and most of them require very little effort from you! Some of the best locations are literally a stone's throw away from the side of the road This makes Glencoe easily accessible to just about everyone, old or young, fit or unfit! Obviously, I will encourage everyone to venture much further away from the easily accessible locations but this will be up to you!
I guarantee you’ll return home with photographs you’ll want to print and cherish forever.
"What an experience at Glencoe brilliant workshop a must if you get a chance. Gary’s teaching skills are first class. A fab group of people throughly enjoyed the 3 days"

Just call the studio and speak to Paula.
What skill level do I have to be?

How fit do I need to be?
Not fit at all – All areas are accessible by vehicle and then a short walk. The only challenge will be the hike to an elevated area to shoot down on the white cottage. It's just a gentle climb and you can go up as far as you want. There won’t be any rushing on this trip. If you feel you can’t make it then you’ll still be able to photograph the famous cottage from down below.
Is my camera good enough?
Is it a Camera? then yes – all of the above could have been taken on a cheap camera, the results would have been the same, GUARANTEED!
Pro Camera's available to rent £10 per day (inc. lens)
What Equipment will I need?
Your Camera – Sturdy Tripod – ND filters (these aren't expensive and I can advise the right ones to buy)
Good skies make for a great picture, the more dramatic the sky the better the image. There are no tourists anywhere (except us). The roads are empty so getting from A-B is a breeze.
And there are NO MOSQUITOES
What if the weather is bad?
As a Landscape Photographer, inclement weather is just something we cannot predict. The best planning in the world can't allow for adverse weather conditions, especially when planning so far in advance. The weather is just something that we as photographers must be prepared for. Because of this, we DO NOT GUARANTEE that we will be able to visit all of the locations listed. We'll certainly try our best though!
How much deposit and when do I pay the balance?
£100 deposit is required to secure your place on the course – the balance is due 6 weeks prior to the 1st day of training
