LOCH MAREE – HISTORY, WILDLIFE AND THE LANDSCAPE
EDDIE EPHRAUMS, ADRIAN HOLLISTER & LOCAL EXPERTS
Photograph the landscape and wildlife of one of the most beautiful lochs in the Highlands. Staying in Inverewe House, within the grounds of the famous NTS Inverewe Garden
Location: Open Studio Workshop Centre, Scotland
Dates: Oct 29 – Nov 4, 2018
Loch Maree is often described as the most beautiful Loch in Scotland, and it is easy to see why. Overshadowed by the mountains of Slioch and Beinn Eighe, this inland Loch supports magnificent wildlife, features islands with a fascinating history and many legends, and, less well known, the remains of an important 17th century iron industry. This EU designated Special Area of Conservation hosts salmon, black-throated divers, otters, Arctic charr, and the iconic golden eagle.
The Loch Maree workshop provides a unique opportunity to photograph this wonderful location, its wildlife, and learn more about the place. During the week we will photograph the loch at various locations and will spend time with a local expert photographing wildlife, including photo-stalking deer, and a boat trip to the islands (weather permitting). There will also be opportunities to photograph the remains of an 8th century chapel and graveyard, and a walk to the old iron works. We will also spend a day with a local geology expert, understanding and photographing some of the features of the ancient rocks and the Loch Maree faultline that created this ancient loch. In the evenings we will have talks from local experts covering the history, wildlife, fishing, and geology of the Loch.
This small group workshop will be based in the beautiful Inverewe House, in the centre of the National Trust for Scotland’s Inverewe Gardens, with our own caterers providing dinners in the House. We will have editing and printing facilities on the premises, and we will support you in producing a small portfolio of your images to take away, printed to exhibition standard.
