Amazing tour through Glencoe & Glen Etive. I've been several times before and often struggled to take photographs that convey the majesty of this landscape. Tom showed us several spots just off the beaten track that I would never have found without his guidance. With the popular views like the white cottage he suggested and encouraged us to find different perspectives. I felt so much more relaxed and able to enjoy the walks without the pressure of figuring out the best shot, knowing it was all taken care of and the angle I'll get will be the best possible view of this landscape. I did professional photography at one point in my career and know my way around a camera, but I feel like I still learned new things. It was also great to try out new bits of kit, such as filters. The walks we did to different 'photo spots' are suitable for all levels, I never felt pushed past what I'm comfortable with. I got the sense that Tom had several trails in mind and would be able to offer more challenging trails to the keener hikers. Could not recommend Photo Walks Scotland enough to anyone with an interest in photography and Scottish landscapes. And it did wonders for my Instagram account :)

Hi Ana, thank you so much for your extremely kind words and fantastic review. I am so pleased that you got so much from the day. We were really lucky with the weather (not to mention the lack of midges) and Glencoe did its very best to shine for us. Great company, great weather and great company. Look forward to seeing you again. Tom

Had a fantastic day with Tom in Glencoe and Glen Etive on Saturday. Met at the Green Welly at Tyndrum - loads of free parking - and after a quick coffee and breakfast roll, we were on our way. So many great locations during the day, from the iconic Black Rock Cottage overlooking Buachaille Etive Mor into Glen Etive with waterfalls and water features, then further down the valley for more spectacular views and more water features! Rounding the day off walking to the Study with fantastic views to the Three Sisters and down the valley. Tom had loads of great locations sorted for the day with alternative options where we were unable to stop. Great advice given to improve my photographs and try new things - my previously unused filters got an outing allowing me to try long exposure photography at the waterfalls, A really enjoyable day out. Good Locations. Good Company. Great Photographs.

Hi Ian, thank you so much for your kind review. It is really appreciated. It was a superb day out on Saturday. We really couldn't fault the weather and even the midges never put an appearance in until we were done for the day! Glad you enjoyed the tour. Look forward to seeing you again. Tom

I had a fabulous day with Tom in Glasgow. I live in Scotland and have visited Glasgow many times and thought I knew the city well. Tom introduced me to many new places I didn't know existed- and his knowledge of Glasgow's history is incredible! If you're visiting Glasgow I highly recommend you book a tour with Tom- I wouldn't travel Glasgow any other way. He also gave me some awesome tips for my photography and I saw a huge difference in the quality of my images right away. A+++++

I had a great half day Photo Walk in Glasgow with Tom. He taught me a huge amount of new photography skills and techniques which I will nurture and develop. What I was also really impressed about was his knowledge of Glasgow. He told me a huge amount of really interesting stuff about my native city which I wasn't aware of. We covered a lot of ground in half a day, however it still seemed to be done at a perfect pace, and never hurried. The half day flew in really quickly. If you are looking for a really interesting, informative and skill-building professional photo walk then Tom is your man. Photography, history and culture, a perfect combination!
