Our Glencoe photography tour will take place in February 2021 with Clive Minnitt and Phil Malpas. Glen Coe and nearby Rannoch Moor contain some of the British Isles best wild mountain and moorland scenery. When you add in the strong possibility of the landscape being clothed in snow and ice, something we don’t see that often these days in the south of the UK as global warming gathers pace, they become truly magical places. There are few more beautiful sights than golden, early morning sunlight striking the spectacular snow covered Buchaille Etive Mor in the depths of winter. Experienced photographers know that, far from being dreary, winter provides the very best lighting opportunities for landscape photography: the sun remains low in the sky all day long giving wonderful directional light combined with the year’s moodiest cloudscapes.

This Glencoe photography tour is an intensive workshop specially designed for beginners and those at an intermediate level. The tour leaders, Clive and Phil, will both provide you with hands-on tuition during daylight hours and in addition they will present a series of evening seminars on different aspects of landscape technique.

Glencoe Photography Tour - Glencoe in Winter Landscape Photography

Glen Coe and nearby Rannoch Moor contain some of the British Isles best wild mountain and moorland scenery. When you add in the strong possibility of the landscape being clothed in snow and ice, something we don’t see that often these days in the south of the UK as global warming gathers pace, they become truly magical places. There are few more beautiful sights than golden, early morning sunlight striking the spectacular snow covered Buchaille Etive Mor in the depths of winter. Experienced photographers know that, far from being dreary, winter provides the very best lighting opportunities for landscape photography: the sun remains low in the sky all day long giving wonderful directional light combined with the year’s moodiest cloudscapes.

This Glencoe photography tour is an intensive workshop is specially designed for beginners and those at an intermediate level. There are two leaders, Clive Minnitt and Phil Malpas. They will both provide you with hands-on tuition during daylight hours and in addition they will present a series of evening seminars on different aspects of landscape technique. This will provide the very best opportunity to learn the mechanics of photography and new techniques and give you a chance to implement them under Clive and Phil’s expert guidance. We will review the digital images you have made at the end of each day and you are also invited to bring a selection of previous images for informal and friendly critique sessions.

As well as the iconic Buchaille we will visit and photograph the nearby famous view of the Black Mount from Lochan na h-Achlaise on the wild edge of Rannoch Moor (a wonderful dawn location), the stunning falls along the River Etive in Glen Etive, the impressive ramparts of the Three Sisters in Glen Coe. Further afield we will journey to beautiful Glen Nevis in the shadow of Scotland’s highest mountain and explore the shore along Loch Leven.

We will be based in the newly renovated and wonderfully situated Kingshouse Hotel and will have two 9 seater minibuses to get us to locations quickly and give us full freedom to explore the surrounding landscape.

Most locations are easily accessed from the road but some of the best will involve short walks across rough terrain and require a reasonable level of physical fitness.

"A great tour. The location is magnificent and we were very fortunate with the weather, enough snow to cover everywhere, but not so much that travel became impossible, although Clive and Phil had to deal with some challenging driving conditions, especially on one memorable occasion in Glen Etive. So the photography was great. However, with these two, it is always much more than that, because they make everything fun - even being out in driving winds and heavy rain and snow. A great idea was to ask everyone to participate in sessions to view and critique a selection of the day's pictures. That provided lots of excellent advice from Clive and Phil and also ideas from how others had seen the opportunities of the locations. I realise that an exercise such as this is not practicable for many tours, because of the long days on location and also because of the logistics of transporting projectors and screens. But I think it's certainly something that should be recommended to other tour leaders."

As always with Phil & Clive the tour was a lot of fun as well as photographically challenging. Even when the weather was at its worse they led us to locations where it was still possible to obtain interesting images. Always ready to assist, but never intrusive they yet again found the right balance to make me feel I was learning & improving but still enjoying the whole time.

Well organised trip, beautiful locations. Very knowledgeable and caring leaders.

Stephen Roberts - 14th Jan, 2020

Fantastically well organised photography holiday with first class tuition. Over the 4 days, the group was taken to the best locations given the rapidly changing winter weather conditions to optimise the photography opportunities. On arrival at each spot, general instructions were given and that was followed in turn with 1:1 instruction.

Fabulous leaders who went well beyond the norm to make sure every guest got the most from their photography tour

Jonathan Holt - 11th Jan, 2020

Excellent trip. Clive and Phil are great leaders and have very helpful nature. The evening image review sessions are well done and everyone learns a lot from seeing the images that others have taken. Kingshouse Hotel chosen for accommodation and evening meals was excellent. Loved all the meals I chose. Highly recommended.
