Residential Workshops
Aviemore, Scottish Highlands

We will spend two days in this beautiful area in the Highlands of Scotland. We are spoilt for choice with snowy mountain scenery and rocky streams everywhere we look. The exact schedule will be weather dependent. One of the two days we will spend photographing the landscape, and the other one will be spent honing our wildlife photography skills in the Highland Wildlife Park. PRICE IS FOR TUITION ONLY. The workshop will be suitable for beginners and experts, but ideally you will have already done a Going Digital Part 1 course and understand the basics of photography. There are many activities to keep non-photographers happy in this area if you are bringing your family! We will aim to meet up on the Friday evening for dinner and spend Saturday and Sunday photographing to our heart's content.

We will be based at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre located in the heart of Cairngorms National Park. The accommodation is in twin rooms. For bed&breakfast - the costs are £80 for 2 people sharing a room, per night, and £60 for 1 person in a single room, per night. We can either eat in the bar at the Lodge, or go into Aviemore.  Your accommodation needs to be booked separately by yourselves at the Lodge.

This is a full day at Scotland's National Airshow, in East Fortune, East Lothian. This is a fabulous opportunity to learn the techniques required to photograph different aircraft in flight, as they take to the skies in a spectacular flying display. There will be plenty of time to watch the display and still have chance to practise your new skills!

There is also a static display of aircraft to photograph and the museums are open. The Airshow opens at 10am, and last year the awesome flying display began at 12pm.

The price of this workshop does not include the entry fee or lunch, and to ensure that you get the most of out the day, a 200mm lens (or longer) is recommended. TAKE A PICNIC - once the flying display is underway you will not want to queue at the burgervan!
