Lewis & Harris Photography Workshop (Nov ‘24)
10th - 16th November, 2024
€2,150.00 - €350.00 Deposit
Join me in November 2024 as I return to the Outer Hebrides for what will be an unforgettable photographic adventure. Off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Lewis and Harris is a small picturesque Island located North of Skye in the Outer Hebrides. Despite what the name suggests Lewis and Harris is actually two parts of the one island. Stornoway is its largest town and lies on the east coast.
From the 10th to the 16th of November '24, we will explore the diverse and dramatic landscapes that Lewis and Harris has to offer. We will take in the rugged mountains, stunning white beaches, capture the unique thatched black houses at Gearrannan, all the while surrounded by magnificent clear, turquoise seas!
A photographers paradise, this island and its ever changing landscape has such diversity it has to be experienced to fully appreciate its beauty and fascinating history.
Accommodation for the workshop is at the beautiful Harris Hotel. Six nights, single occupancy on a B&B basis is included in the workshop price. Situated in Tarbert, the hotel is the ideal base for us to access all our workshop locations with ease.
The meeting point for the beginning of the workshop is 4pm on Sun 10th of November at Ullapool Ferry Terminal.
