April 29th and 30th 2024
A totally new wedding workshop and locations in and around the stunning Glencoe. An area I’ve visited for many years and yearned to photograph a bride and groom amongst the mountains, waterfalls and amazing vistas. Think landscape and wedding photography combined.
From our base at Tyndrum just south of Glencoe, we’ll have access to some of the best scenery the stunning Scottish Highlands afford and so many opportunities to explore composition, lighting and create unique and amazing images whilst learning new techniques..
We’ll leave the hotel at 0830 to head to Glencoe and the stunning Glen Etive including the amazing waterfalls. We’ll finish our wedding photography at 1630 but anyone wishing to stay can join me for a few hours of landscapes in and around Glencoe
Attending a workshop isn’t just about creating stunning images, it’s the journey involved in creating these images and where and how we work out camera and flash settings so you can quickly and easily create similar images on a real wedding day.You’ll have access to our flashes and triggers for the off camera flash elements of the workshop (Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fuji). it is recommended you have your own flash for when we are shooting with on camera flash. We’ll also be using a variety of gels, grids and other modifiers from Magmod.
You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to guide and direct the models as we incorporate waterfalls, jetties and stunning mountain vistas in our photographs.

Areas we’ll be covering –
