About
Join me in Scotland's great outdoors to develop your landscape photography skills. I run single day workshops for up to four people in the following locations: The Black Isle near Inverness; the Isle of Skye; Wester Ross and Torridon; and Assynt and Coigach. I also offer bespoke photography workshops in a location of your choice. Learn from tutorials, one-to-one tuition in the field and critique sessions which will be delivered in a positive way with the intention of inspiring you, as opposed to denting your confidence! My workshops are suited to beginners and more experienced photographers alike. I believe that the photographer is more important than the camera and so I will help you to improve your skills regardless of the technology you are using. The emphasis will be on perfecting your images in-camera as opposed to in post-production.

Oct 2020 • Family
We booked a photography day course with Karen and we loved it. We are have different levels of knowledge and interest when it comes to photography and Karen catered for all of us brilliantly. We all had a great day. We learned lots and it was fun! Would highly recommend. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner!

Landscape Photography Day
Mar 2020
I took up photography about six months ago and booked a day on the Black Isle, Karen quickly worked out at what level I was at, and planned the day accordingly, I gained a lot of new knowledge on the day which I think will be of great use moving forward.
As well as the learning the day was really enjoyable and Karen great company.
The day passed too quickly !

Hi Kevin. Thanks so much for your feedback! I'm delighted that you gained a lot of new knowledge on the day that you can apply in future. I really enjoyed the day too - definitely the highlight of my working week! You've come a long way in a short space of time so I think you'll cover a lot of ground in the next six month. Good luck with it all and keep in touch. Best wishes, Karen

A very informative day!
Oct 2019
I am so please that I booked this photography workshop with Karen at the start of our North Coast 500 tour. I have been dabbling with my camera off of Auto for while but had not fully got to grips with the manual settings. Karen quickly assessed my current level of ability and knowledge and built on this starting point. I was quickly able to make the connections between terminology I had heard and its practical application. There were many lightbulb moments during the day as I developed my understanding. Working one to one meant that progress was swift and I came away from the day with many new skills to practice over the coming weeks.

Hi Linda. Thanks so much for your feedback. I’m delighted that you got so much out of the workshop. It was very satisfying to watch those lightbulb moments throughout the day and see you getting better results with your manual settings. Thanks again for joining me on the Black Isle and I hope you enjoy the rest of your tour around the North Coast 500 with your camera! Best wishes, Karen

An enjoyable day for the beginning or more advanced photographer.
Jun 2019 • Couples
Karen provided a very enjoyable and helpful day for both myself, an intermediate amateur, and my wife, who has a great eye, but is not into the tech part of photography.
The hikes into the photo locations were very pretty, and Karen knew how to make the best of the conditions, which were sometimes less than ideal. Karen has a genuine warmth and empathy as a teacher that lets her find each student at their level and give calm, helpful suggestions. In between locations, Karen was delightful company and showed us some other Black Isle sights.

David and Susan, thank you so much for your kind words! I really enjoyed our day out on the Black Isle and am delighted that you both got so much out of it. It was a pleasure getting to know you both and showing you some of the local sights in between photo locations. I hope the last few days of your holiday went well and you get out and about with your cameras again soon! Best wishes, Karen

Success!
Feb 2019 • Friends
I booked a day with Karen for my friend and I to learn the basics of photography. As complete beginners we had mastered the basics of our digital compacts by lunchtime and spent the afternoon on the more complicated digital SLRs. That success is largely down to the teaching skills of Karen, other things that helped (a) my friend and I almost had the same compact camera and (b) we started at the same level of knowledge - nil. Karen tailored the day to what we wanted and where we wanted to go. Her advice was practical and delivered at a perfect pace - not too much too soon, but at a pace to keep your interest. Add to that her lovely character and professionalism with the booking system and you have a perfect combination. We're practising valuable skills in the field and will book again next year to improve even further and discover more fantastic shooting locations in the Highlands. Suzanne

Hi Suzanne, Thanks so much for the great review. I'm delighted that you and Jade enjoyed the day and found it so beneficial. It was an absolute pleasure working with you both and very rewarding to see you master your cameras over the course of the day! It would be great to catch up again next year to take your photography skills to the next level. All the best until then and I hope you get some special images while you're out and about walking and climbing! Best wishes, Karen

Great day!
Mar 2019 • Solo
Spent a delightful day in Karen's company as she introduced me to some hidden gems on the Black Isle. Throughout the day, she took me through numerous aspects of landscape photography, pitching her input to the level of my (limited) expertise but building on her teaching as the day progressed.
I attended the workshop on my own, but Karen is very easy to get along with and the day passed quickly & very comfortably. It's also clear that she can "up her game" with those who are much more experienced than me.
She has followed this up with her own e-book summarising much of the advice she gave together with links to useful podcasts.
All in all, this was a very enjoyable and worthwhile day. I would thoroughly recommend it!

Hi Geoff, Thanks very much for the great review. It was a pleasure to work with you and see you mastering more and more functions on your camera throughout the day, as well as trying some different styles of photography. I really enjoyed your company too and showing you some of the Black Isle's hidden gems! I hope you enjoy putting everything into practice when you're out and about! Thanks again. Best wishes, Karen

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful course we recently attended with you, the whole day was fantastic and seeing some of the area we grew up in and exploring other places on our doorstep was great! While learning some new skills and working the camera to its fullest potential and creating some amazing shots! Now off to practise everything that we learnt before our holidays next year!

Thank you again
