Lesley Alsford – Cornwall

Lesley Alsford – Cornwall

Lesley, you have a natural way with colour and light and a flair for using the technicals in a very artistic way. It was interesting looking at your photo a day that you have been doing for a long while now and seeing some images that wouldn’t be out of place with the...

Amanda Root – Cornwall

Amanda Root – Cornwall

Amanda Root - Cornwall, St Ives workshop, Feb 2020 I saw you contentedly sitting and watching the world go by, even when the gales were blowing and the rain drenching us, I saw you enjoying little moments in nature. What is so wonderful about you is that you quietly...

David Lengeler – Cornwall

David Lengeler – Cornwall

David Lengeler came on the Cornwall waves and seascapes workshop in Feb 2020, St Ives  The way you embraced and loved every second outdoors amidst wild winds and storms was wonderful. Your connection to the coast is obvious and your delight at seeing every place we...

Caroline Goodman – Harris

Caroline Goodman – Harris

Caroline - It was difficult to choose one of your images because you have such a wonderfully unique perspective on things that actually a series of your images seemed a better way to look at your work.  So I hope you don't mind me making a little composite to show...

Margaret Ford – Hebrides

Margaret Ford – Hebrides

Margaret has an incredibly individual eye in her photography. I can see it run through all her images taken on the trip and it is another example of how each of us captures a scene in a particular way because our style is truly within ourselves. If we try and force it...

Debbie Islett – Hebrides

Debbie Islett – Hebrides

Well, I wonder if you are all doing the same thing that I did when Debbies images came through to me. Each time she sent one over it stopped me in my tracks. Debbie is, in my opinion, a lady with a pure and natural talent for photography. I couldn't just pick one...

Jeremy Lintott – Hebrides

Jeremy Lintott – Hebrides

I've spoken before about Jeremy and they way he has such a wonderful way of interacting with the landscape. He is an example of someone who, like me, enjoys literally being immersed in the scene. Jeremy was always the first to wade in there, in a really quiet and...

Lorraine Finney – Hebrides

Lorraine Finney – Hebrides

Lorraine Finney came on the Outer Hebrides workshop in 2019 I love, love, love the fact that Lorraine broke the rules in this image. There is something about Lorraine's work that is intriguing. It is very technically good and already has a real defined style to it....

Zoe Walton – Hebrides

Zoe Walton – Hebrides

Zoe came on the Outer Hebrides photography workshop in 2019 Zoe loves just wandering on beaches and is happy “pottering” as she says. The way she just loves every moment and appreciates every environment, whether that is a beautiful dawn or a windswept storm is...

David Mooney – Hebrides

David Mooney – Hebrides

David - I love this unusual viewpoint of the stones. We see so many images taken from the same perspective at Callanish which have the same sunrise/ sunset feel. I think that this photograph actually says so much more about the Hebrides than any sunset could do. After...

Maurice Ford – Hebrides

Maurice Ford – Hebrides

Maurice Ford came on the Outer Hebrides Photography workshop in 2019  Maurice, you have captured something so completely unique with this image - taken on Garry beach at sunrise. I know this part of the beach well and have yet to capture an image that is successful...

Lesley Lintott – Hebrides

Lesley Lintott – Hebrides

Lesley came on the Outer Hebrides photography workshop in 2019. Lesley is a lady with a spirit akin to myself. Always the first to go off by herself and climb a hill, be within the land and really take time to appreciate it in her own way. Battling to figure out why...

Paul Sanders

Paul Sanders

Yes, he assumed that he got away with it, but I am including the very talented Paul Sanders in this series of alternative critiques from our retreat in Lewis recently! He needs no introduction and is the most humble bundle of talent about. Seemingly effortlessly...

Colin Smith – Hebrides

Colin Smith – Hebrides

Colin came to us, attracted by the very different styles that me and Paul have in our work. A lovely gentle caring man who is the best possible type of student - one that absorbs, listens and responds. His development over the few days I spent with him was remarkable...

Pamela Leadbetter – Hebrides

Pamela Leadbetter – Hebrides

Another unassuming lady with hidden talents. I have always known that the greatest talents lie within the most quiet and modest people.And the past two weeks confirm this for me. I chose this particular image as it sums up the Hebrides in the most incredibly unique...

Richard Bingham – Harris

PHOTO: Richard Bingham FEEDBACK: Our day at Bagh Steingidh produced a wide range of images from everyone on the Isle of Harris photography retreat. Richard Bingham was experimental in his method on this occasion, choosing to capture a super long exposure of the beach...
