Dear All, Just a quick update on what your budding photographer has been doing this September.
Isle of Eigg Workshop Completed
Last week I spent a really nice time on the Isle of Eigg conducting my first ever Scottish photographic workshop.
I'm not new to doing workshops, but doing them on my own turf is something new, and I feel very lucky to have had such an enthusiastic bunch of people. Many thanks Andrew, Calum, Christian, Luciano, Peter, Sam, Stephen & Torben.
We spent the entire week covering many aspects of landscape photography. What was interesting for me was how I saw participants images improve over the space of a week. We spent a bit of time each morning after breakfast doing a solid 3 hour critique of images and this really helped everyone pick up new suggestions for things to try later on that evening.
I've updated the testimonials on my site with feedback from the guys on the trip. You can find it here, should you wish to get more of an insight to the trips and what's covered.
Harris Workshop - 1 space left
I'm only sad now that the trip is over, but I'm excited about the trips I have lined up for the remainder of the year. I'll be going to Glen Coe, Torridon and also Harris & Lewis. All the trips are full now, with the exception that the Harris trip has only one space left : so if you've been thinking of coming - now's your chance to get that last space :-)
So what's next?
I'm just very busy at the moment. I seem to have a lot of plans on, including setting up some further trips to Harris for May next year, the possibility of a trip to the isles of Arran, Skye and Assynt - one of my favourite places in the north west of Scotland.
I hope you've been keeping up to date with my postings - 'the making of 40 photographs', should you wish to find out more about how I make my images. I do plan to publish the final content as an e-Book later on in the year.
Until then, I hope this news letter finds you well.
All the best, Bruce.
