I will work with you extensively in the field and teach you how to take great landscape photographs with your camera – whether you use digital or film. We will explore the beautiful coastal landscape of the East Neuk of Fife and work through the principles of seeing photographically, working with light, composition, basic camera techniques, the use of filters, cable release and tripod. Depending on your level and weather conditions, we might attempt some long exposure photography. You will receive some quality one-to-one time with me over the two days. Group size strictly restricted to 4.

  • Film or digital camera
  • Tripod (there are tripods you can use if you let me know you don’t have one)
  • Layers of outdoor clothing incl. weatherproof/waterproof jacket, fleece and hat and gloves (it can get windy!)
  • Sturdy walking shoes/boots or wellies (my favourite!)
