I’ve lived in a few different places throughout my 19 years in Scotland.
Settled now in Skye, I’m well placed to show you the beauty of the surrounding area. You will be thoroughly entertained and well looked after during your workshop.
When I’m not running photography courses, I work as a fully qualified self-employed fire risk assessor and health and safety advisor at SR FIRE (INVERNESS) LTD.
The chap you see in the background leaning on the tripod is my good friend Keith Moss, who will be joining me to deliver some workshops throughout 2019. You can see a photograph of Keith below right.
I am passionate about analogue photography, it is a process that gives me peace and solace. The workshops are carried out in a very relaxing manner where you will have time to ask questions and really soak up the environment and atmosphere.
I mainly shoot on large and medium format film however, I’ll also have my Canon T90 and Lomography Sprocket Rocket on my hip too!
I’ve been published in the Royal Photographic Society here.
Although the workshops are aimed at learning / progressing analogue skills, digital photographers will also enjoy and benefit from the experience, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch! If you want to come along and shoot purely digital that’s no problem!
When it comes to developing the film that you’ve shot, we will head back to the darkroom / studio at La Maison de Campagne. The accommodation location is beautiful where you will be able to think back on the day and unwind whilst developing.
After the negatives are dry you can choose to scan them on the Epson v800 and / or alternatively hand print them. This will depend on the level / duration of workshop you’ve opted for.
Hand printing will truly round off the experience for you, and you’ll be able to take your prints away for display on your wall at home!
