One day one to one Landscape Photographic Workshops

Your workshop leader
Douglas Ritchie

Douglas has been a Landscape photographer for over 35 years covering the length and breadth of Scotland capturing the unique and exquisite light that is world renowned. Born and raised in Ayrshire, Douglas with his friendly and informative teaching methods guarantee that you will take home some memorable photographs and more importantly a deeper understanding of your camera and equipment and how to capture the images that you really want.

These workshops can take you to some of Scotland’s most beautiful and dramatic locations. They have been designed to concentrate on the creative and compositional aspects of landscape photography. The vast majority of time is spent out on location with the opportunity to slow the image-making process down and explore each location's potential to the full.

The Workshops will be tailored to the individual’s needs, including where we go.
I don't have rigid times and dates, making my workshops very flexible and geared to you Just get in touch and we can arrange a place and time to suit.

The workshops cover basic through to the advanced use of digital and film-based cameras. Advice will be given on metering, creative use of shutter speeds and apertures, choices of focal length, creative compositions, when and what filters to use.

A workshop would also prove an excellent gift – perfect for someone wanting to advance their photography knowledge. The day begins with a brief, and talk on technique. We will then visit 2 or 3 different locations where you will have the opportunity to photograph beautiful scenery, as well as benefiting from Douglas’s experience and knowledge.

My One to One Workshops cost just £160.00.

I recommend bringing a sturdy tripod, remote release and some grad filters, good warm waterproof clothing and sturdy walking boots.

If you are interested in a group workshop for up to six participants please get in touch and it can be tweaked to suit the group.

Costing just £85,morning or afternoon to suit.

I was gifted a one-to-one landscape workshop with Douglas and spent a fantastic day on the Ayrshire coast. During that day I learned more about photography than from years of learning from books and internet. Douglas was very professional and took all of the time necessary to work with me on composition, technique, post-processing and "seeing" images. He showed me how to get the most from my camera and was great at explaining things and answering my endless list of questions! I ended the day with some very pleasing images, having gained so much knowledge, and more enthusiastic than ever. Since then my shots are far improved to anything I could have produced before. I can recommend a day with Douglas to anyone who really wants to improve as a photographer, worth every penny. Thanks for a great day.
