We will be based at Inverewe, in one of Scotland’s most beautiful and stunningly situated gardens, and staying in the estate house, with immediate access to both the garden and a computer/print workspace, at all times.


During the workshop you will have the opportunity to photograph:

– visitors to the garden and the gardeners who work there

– a variety of plants, trees and different aspects of the garden, that make Inverewe unique

– the newly restored estate house with its period furnishings

– the surrounding landscape, to put your portrait of Inverewe Garden into context


The workshop will also provide the opportunity to develop your environmental portraiture/photo-story related skills:

– shooting with natural light, using reflectors and light shades

– choosing suitable location backdrops for people portraits and how to ‘pose’ the subject

– editing and sequencing images to tell a more complete story

– post-processing to create a unified set of pictures

– exploring different printing and presentation options, to give added meaning to your portrait of Inverewe and future projects beyond the workshop


To summarise: one of the questions we get asked the most is how do you go from making single images to creating more meaningful bodies of work? This location portrait workshop provides the perfect answer, with its combination of stunning location, the opportunity to practice photographing people and places, in-house computer and printing facilities – all in a fully supported capacity.
