TORRIDON WITH MARK LITTLEJOHN

Thursday 22nd March - Tuesday 27th March 2018

£850 - 6 Places Only

 

Join Mark Littlejohn and I on a 5 day / 5 night photographic workshop/tour situated right in the heart of Torridon, one of Scotland's most beautiful Highland locations. We will be located on the shores of Loch Torridon, surrounded by enigmatic and legendary mountains such as Liathach, Beinn Alligin and Beinn Eighe. Surrounding areas such as the Applecross Penninsula accessed via the infamous Pass of the Cattle, Loch Marie and the towering Slioch mountain and coastal locations such as Mellon Udrigle are all within easy reach. A reasonably long walk to visit the Triple Buttress at Coire Mhic Fhearchair will no doubt be high on the agenda, and we'll look to perhaps summit the odd Munro or Corbett if conditions allow.

Participants are expected to be reasonably mobile, however, that doesn’t mean you have to be super fit either. This is a workshop that will suit most people. As we have 5 days together there will be opportunity for some rest and relaxation, during which we can turn our attention to processing (we will have a 5K 27” iMac with us to run Lightroom post-processing).

There will be a combination of sunrise shoots, sunset shoots, high level photographic walks, visits to impressive Coire's, raging mountain rivers, lochs and lochans, varied woodland, and exposed coastline. Torridon and the surrounding areas are so incredibly rich in photographic subject matter and possibilities for exploration, it's almost impossible to get bored.

We will be staying in a recently renovated comfortable 8 bed house on a large private estate and in a prime location. Participants shall share twin bedded rooms and the price of the workshop includes all provisions for breakfast and evening meals at local eateries (Sorry, Alcohol is excluded)). The house also has broadband Wifi throughout and there is Vodafone and O2 mobile coverage. Photography shall take place, weather permitting, following arrival at or around lunchtime on Thursday 22nd to lunchtime 27th March* inclusive, after which we shall depart for home.

About the workshop leaders

 

Greg Whitton – Greg is an award winning and well respected UK landscape photographer. In 2014 he won the title of Outdoor Photographer of the Year and in the following year won the Live the Adventure category of the same competition. In addition to other notable successes in competitions such as Landscape Photographer of the Year and Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year, he has been published in a number of photographic magazines and is the author of ‘Mountainscape’ published by Triplekite. Greg has been running workshops across the UK for over 3 years and prides himself as one of the few workshop leaders that will competently lead clients to less often visited locations in order to get away from the crowds and allow participants to experience the true beauty of the landscape.

Mark Littlejohn - Mark is a Scottish landscape photographer who concentrates his efforts in the North of England and Scotland. Mark prefers the smaller view as opposed to the big vista and tries to capture moody atmospheric scenes that capture the viewers imagination. Although he presents both colour and mono images it is his split toning techniques, which attract most attention. He has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Take a View UK Landscape Photographer of the Year in 2014. He regularly writes for magazines such as Outdoor Photography and Amateur Photographer. During the course of the year he specialises in smaller workshop groups in well chosen locations and one-2-ones in the Lake District.

 

* Please Note: on the final morning, Tuesday 27th March, due to commitments already scheduled, Mark will not be able to join us.
