Photograpic Masterclass with New Earth  

Imporve your photography in the wilderness of Scotland in partnership with Loch Visions

Photography uses two parts of the brain. The 'creative'  - the story and emotion, versus the 'tech' -  the controls and the science. These components are the building blocks of a photographic image, break them down and your photography will come alive! 

By the time you leave us you will have a better eye for a story and a deeper understanding of all the menus, buttons and dials. Helping you take control of your photography and opening up the world around you.


"Our friendly courses are designed to give you the tools to get the most out of your photographs". 

Our Scottish adventure  

There is a romance associated with Scotland, none more so than its coastline, lochs, and woodlands. During this adventure, we will explore and hike around the Knapdale Forest and Lochgilphead region. Exploring the flora and fauna of this rich eco-system.

There will be many wildlife encounters and opportunities to photograph from either bespoke wildlife hides or known vantage points. Encountering Otter, Red Squirrel, Sea, and Golden Eagle and Bever. With a special opportunity to photograph the elusive Badger. With hides unobtrusively placed near their sets. Nights are spent wild camping around a fire (where respectfully possible). There may also be an opportunity to photograph some amazing marine diversity from Dolphin, Porpoise and Grey Seals. We will also venture onto the remote Island of Scarba, where Puffins and other seabirds live in abundance. 

When taking a photo it helps to have an understanding of the subject matter, so on of our West Coast experience not only will you learn all about your camera and its workings, but we will shed some light on the Geology, Flora, and Fauna of the region.


In addition to Scotlands wildlife, we willnprovide plenty of opportunities to improve your landscape photography too.

Day 1:

19.00 arrive at a traditional Scottish Inn on the Ardfern peninsula for a meet-and-greet.

Here we will joined by Phillip Price a local and highly experienced wildlife photographer. Together will Philip and New Earth will give you an unforgettable photographic wildlife experience.

Then its time for some introductions and a briefing on the days ahead. We will also hold a Q&A where you can explain your experiences, motivations and photographic goals so we can create a more bespoke experience for you all.  

Day 2:

Our day starts at a converted boat house, where we will discover all the basic elements to take great photos. We then move outside and explore the region, applying that theory into practise by exploring detail in the local enviroment, bark, moss, rocks etc. If you look carefully there is more detail at arms reach than meets the eye. After a picnic on the beach next to our boat house we start discover the art of landscape photography, with just a few simple pointers, you will get that picture ‘postcard look’.

As dusk approaches we settle in to photograph the Badgers active around their sets, to achieve this we will use our secret bespoke hides allowing these beautiful animals to behalve in their natural patterns. 

Then back to base for a very later dinner and discussions about the days work.

Then back to base for a very later dinner and discussions about the days work. 

Day 4:

Our day starts early with a boat trip to the remote Island of Scarba. This mostly uninhabited island allows for incredible access to photograph a vast array of wildlife, especially Puffins and many species of seabirds. En-route keep your camera at hand for sightings of Dolphin, Porpoise and Grey Seals, even Orca and Humpback Whales have been sighted before. 

To maximise the days' opportunity we will introduce a specialist camera skillset. High-Speed and Action. With this skill, you will be armed ready to photograph Golden and Sea Eagles. 

The evening we spend processing your images and an introduction into the world of Adobe Lightroom.


NOTES: 

  • Due to weather and other environmental factors the schedule may vary or alter. Anyhow learning how to adapt your photography is a key attribute, especially when working with wildlife. 
  • At the end of each day, there is a photographic workshop at camp, where the days' stills are displayed and reviewed, and where assignments can be set for the next day.
  • During the hikes and at hides there will be many opportunistic tutorials for questions that arise. 
  • Due to the stealth required to photograph wildlife, it may be necessary to split into smaller groups.
  • You will get muddy, wet, cold, sunburnt and bitten by bugs and all on the same day - come prepared and join the adventure!
  • Even with the use of hides and known vantage points, all the animals we photograph are wild and sightings, therefore, cannot be guaranteed :-)
