Orkney Landscape Photography Workshop
Orkney Mindful Landscape Photography Workshop
A Photography Workshop based on the Orkney Isles. A chance to slow down, really notice the beauty of the landscape and develop your own vision. We will visit many of the beautiful and historical places on Orkney. From crashing waves and big cliffs to the Standing stones of Stennes. The idea behind the workshop is to allow yourself time to create and not to feel rushed. By slowing down, it is possible to develop a mindful photography practice. I am here to facilitate and guide you gently along the way.
Locations will include some of the following:
Built in around 1880 as a herring and pork curing store the Storehouse is a grade B Listed Building off Kirkwalls historic stone paved main street,close to St Magnus Cathedral .
I specialise in photographing some of Scotland’s most remote and wild places. Spending considerable time on the Outer Hebrides and exploring other equally remote areas. I adore the beauty in remote landscapes and being based in the Highlands of Scotland, it is relatively easy for me to get wild and beautiful places.
I have been photographing landscapes for 23 years since relocating to the Highlands of Scotland. My work has been printed widely and I have exhibited at The Bosham Gallery, Talla Na Mara on the Isle of Harris and at the Taunus Gallery, Frankfurt.
I have been commissioned to travel to photograph in countries such as Italy, America, Iceland, the Azores, Swaziland and Croatia. However, my main interest always comes back to the beautiful wild landscapes of the North of Scotland and the Scottish Isles.
