Introduction to the North West Highlands
The North West Highlands offer a different experience from the rest of Highland Scotland. The mountains here tend to be solitary and less concentrated into great ranges. Typically they stand in spectacular isolation - alone in a landscape of wild open moorland punctuated by a plethora of lochs and lochans. A landscape carved from rock by hard glacial ice and eons of erosion by harsh weather.
A landscape where the drama of its creation still prevails and evokes a tangible sense of the primeval.
The ‘Geopark’ just north of Ullapool typifies the area. Generally known as ‘Assynt’ this is just one small part of this vast region. The further north one ventures the more the mountains stand like sentinels to the past and the coastline becomes wild and remote with unspoilt white sand beaches. A truly remarkable and rewarding place for photographers to discover - and in which to learn their craft!
The workshop is to be hosted at the historic Inchnadamph Hotel in the heart of 'Assynt' Sutherland. The hotel is ideally located for all that this vast region has to offer and specialises in accommodating enthusiasts of all outdoor activities ranging from climbing, hill walking, mountaineering, birdwatching, fly fishing and, of course, photography! All participants have their own en-suite room on a bed and breakfast basis.
Packed lunches can be organised by the hotel should you require one. There will be a choice of a two or three course dinner each evening after which we can relax in front of the open fire. All lunch and evening meals will be at your own cost.
The workshop starts on Saturday 30th March and finishes at 10.00am on Saturday 6th April.
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.
