Isle of Lewis & Harris - EXCLUSIVE
Duration - 7 nights November 2nd - 9th 2019 £1700
Four Clients ONLY
- 3 PLACES REMAINING
This is an exclusive workshop having a maximum of four clients. With two leaders giving a 2 to 1 working ratio close personal attention is ensured.
Lewis and Harris together form the largest of the Outer Hebridean islands and provide a diverse wealth of photographic opportunity. We will be concentrating mainly on Lewis, although we will schedule time to explore the stunning 'Golden Road' and famous white sandy beaches of Harris.
Lewis can often be overlooked in favour of the 'Caribbean' coastline of Harris, with the exception of the famous Callanish Stones, but in reality it offers much more if you only take the time to look. Dramatic coastlines with high cliffs, big seas and crashing waves are predominant. The magnificent sea stacks at Mangersta will literally take your breath away!
Moody light and the dark peat moors of Lewis typify this part of the outer Hebrides - dotted with relics of old and the sadly disappearing traditional way of life, it provides artists and photographers with endless creative opportunities.
Accommodation - Exclusive use of this fully modernised luxury 19th century hunting lodge. Self catering with nearby restaurant
The workshop is to be hosted at the 19th Century Uig Lodge overlooking the vast expanse of Uig bay with the south Lewis hills behind. This area is as dramatic as it is beautiful and will provide us with a wealth of options as we explore the region together.
A fully modernised traditional 19th century hunting lodge offering the freedom of modern self-catering. However, for those preferring to ‘eat out’, there is also a nearby restaurant providing first class food prepared from local produce.
All participants have their own en-suite room or own bathroom on a bed and breakfast basis. Breakfast supplies will be provided but participants are welcome to bring along anything of their own especially if you have any particular dietary requirements. We will also be providing some basic lunch items for the first day, as everything will be closed on the Sunday, but as we are near to the local community store there will be access to food options of your own choice after that.
The workshop starts on Saturday 2nd November and finishes at 10.00am on Saturday 9th November.
Your professional workshop hosts, Tim Wilcock and Russell Sherwood, two of the leading Skye based photographers, both pride themselves on the style of teaching they adopt, giving 100% attention to you throughout the workshop. Their aim is to ensure you get the most from the week, developing your skills as required and helping you to achieve your individual workshop goals.
The workshop will be conducted in a very informal, relaxed and, most importantly, fun atmosphere. Tim and Russell will work with you to ensure you have the best possible experience, being flexible in their approach to ensure you have a fulfilling and rewarding workshop.
As this is an exclusive workshop. With the restriction to four participants, you will be guaranteed more help, guidance and advice than you would normally experience. This is a workshop for you to spend quality time honing your photography skills and taking it to the next level under the guidance of Tim and Russ. These workshop are much much more than the "stand there, point it towards that and take the picture " approach of many other workshops. Our aim on this and all our workshops is to develop your own creativity, allow you to expand your thinking, your approach, your vision of what makes a good image. By the end of the week you should be thinking for yourself not just wanting to 'tick' another shot off your list. You'll have a clearer vision when assessing new locations and approach composition in new, fresh ways, creating your own piece of art with your own stamp on it.
