Isle of Skye Landscape Photography Tour | 29 January - 4 February 2023
A five day photography tour of the stunning landscape of the Isle of Skye as well as the surrounding area
Join me for a fabulous photography tour and workshop of the Isle of Skye in Scotland during the late Winter of 2023. The tour is centred on the island where our base is in the village of Broadford. We will use our base to photograph the stunning scenery of the island as well as the surrounding Scottish Highlands landscape and lochs.
During the month of February, the area around the Isle of Skye is likely to have some dramatic skies to couple with the scenery so be prepared for changeable but photogenic weather.
Our stay is based in the village of Broadford in the south of the island. If inclement weather sets in on Skye then we can also venture to the area on the mainland. Double rooms are provided with breakfast.
Highlights of the tour, other than the endless mountainous scenery, will be the Trotternish Ridge, the Fairy Pools and the Old Man of Storr as well as other places such on the mainland if the weather forces us to change plans.
Where do I meet you?
We will all meet at the Broadford Hotel (TBC) at 15:00 on the 29th January 2023.
Is it cold on the Isle of Skye in February?
In February temperatures can reach below freezing. You'll need to ensure that you have clothing that will keep you warm from the inevitable cold and wind chill that we will be experiencing during our days out.
What clothing should I bring?
Make sure you bring good quality footwear as well as warm socks. Wind chill is likely to be a factor as if we are stood around waiting for the most opportune light then you'll need to make sure you have the appropriate clothing such as a down jacket to deal with this. Don't forget the all important base and mid layers too. A good pair of trousers to ensure that your legs are kept warm. I usually put my Paramo Cascada trousers on to help against the cold. Lastly, make sure a good quality hat and gloves are part of your wardrobe.
Good, sturdy walking shoes that are waterproof are perfect for the terrain that we'll be working in. Places can be wet underfoot and so making sure your feet are protected is one of your first priorities.
What camera kit should I bring?
A wide angle lens (16-35mm) and medium zoom (24-70mm) are the lenses we'll be using the most. A longer zoom (70-300) will be useful to cover most compositional eventualities that we may need to isolate. It's likely the most used lens will be in the 24-70mm range as a super wide angle can create the pancake effect on the mountainous landscape, so make sure this focal length is covered.
Do I need a computer?
Although not essential, its a great idea to bring a laptop computer with you so you can discuss imagery with myself.
What computer support do you give?
I try and make a point of helping those that need it in digital photography. If inclement weather or tiredness takes hold it can really help to have a computer session to assess our progress.
How do I pay?
It's easy! Just use the Paypal buttons below to checkout. The balance will be due 4 weeks before the start of the tour/ workshop. You can always decide to pay the full amount up front too if you wish.
