 Landscape photography workshop Scotland

Mull & Iona 

From stretches of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters to expanses of rugged landscapes and fabulous opportunities for wildlife, Mull has some of the most varied and easily accessible scenery on the Inner Hebrides. It is ideal for a landscape photography workshop.

Birds of prey, seals, whale watching, otters on beaches with Highland cows. Wildlife is everywhere on Mull. Mull also has the most lovely waterfront capital around. Its’ easy access to Iona is another bonus. This tiny ancient island is made even more mystical by the lack of cars. We have the opportunity to wander around the beautiful turquoise waters filled with small boats and the famous Iona Abbey.

One of the highlights is a trip with Staffa tours to the Treshnish Isles. The large puffin colony nests on the hillside surrounded by wildflowers. Naturally inquisitive and without any fear of humans, you can sit quietly on the cliffs as puffins return with beaks full of fish and happily walk amongst us. Photographic opportunities are endless.

FIND YOUR OWN PATH

When I started quiet landscapes, I wanted to create a safe, non-competitive space where no one was worried about keeping up or being the best. My landscape photography workshops in Scotland are a way of facilitating trips to beautiful places that are hard to reach. Combined with gentle encouragement, time, and space to slow down and connect with the landscape. 

YOUR ACCOMMODATION

We have secured a private house set in 6 acres of grounds for our accommodation on the Isle of Mull. The house is full of historic character. It is a spacious and contemporary place where you can truly relax. Our in-house catering means we can eat in the comfort of the house after a long day outside. Meals will all be healthy, hearty and home cooked.

YOUR TUTORS

MARGARET SORAYA

I simply adore Scotland’s remote and wild places and spend a lot of my time exploring Scotland’s islands. From the Inner Hebrides to the Orkneys and as many of the Islands in between as I can get to.

My love of teaching and inspiring others in the landscapes leads me to feel like I have found my purpose in life. When someone else lights up and enjoys and understand their own creativity and vision, I am at my happiest. My work has been printed in Rough Guides, National Geographic Traveller, Camera Craft, Outdoor Photography Magazine.

Having been commissioned to travel to photograph in many countries round the world, I always just want to return the beautiful wild landscapes of Scotland.
