Why Learn with Highland Wildscapes?
In the Highlands of Scotland we are spoiled for choice when it comes to dramatic scenery. Together we’ll explore inspiring locations that make the heart sing.
Before your workshop we will have a detailed discussion about your photography experience to date and your key learning outcomes.
It Only Begins Here
I’m a big believer in long term learning and maintaining contact with my students. I’m happy to offer continued feedback and advice as you continue to gain experience after our workshop.
Prior to your workshop we will have a discussion about your desired learning outcomes for the day, for example any specific technical questions you would like answered, or techniques you would like to learn. During the day itself we will usually explore one location extensively on foot, or visit two or three different areas.
On a typical workshop our discussion and learning points usually include:
- Technical Fundamentals
- Understanding Light, Colour and Contrast
- Visual Storytelling
I will consistently seek your feedback and input throughout the day to ensure that you are getting the learning you want.
What a joy to spend time in the forest with David, learning some new technical and creative skills. We talked about how to leverage layers and contrast to build interesting compositions in an environment that can so often seem noisy and dazzling with detail. Despite having to really work the “soft” light I learned new things and enjoyed the quiet of the outdoors with a knowledgeable photographer and guide.
