Highland Wildscapes - Photography Workshops

Master the craft of landscape photography among the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes the Cairngorms have to offer. Highland Wildscapes is run by landscape photographer David Russell.

David is a qualified Mountain Leader with over fifteen years experience as a photographer and ten years guiding and instructing on photography workshops.

We offer both scheduled 1-day workshops which are open to anyone to join, as well as private experiences tailored to your needs.

Here in the Cairngorms National Park we are spoiled for choice when it comes to beautiful locations to photograph.

From the depths of the rare and beautiful Caledonian Forests that fill our glens, to the heights of the windswept Cairngorm plateau, there is an astonishing diversity of beauty.

It is one of the richest natural areas in Britain.

Whatever the weather, and the season, great photography opportunities await. On our workshops we will teach you the fundamental camera skills you need that then allow you to focus entirely on the rich and nuanced beauty of the landscape around us.

With this knowledge youll miss fewer shots, and understand how to get the very best out of every image.

We will encourage you to work toward finding a deeper knowledge of the land so you can find opportunities, while also giving you the benefit of our unparalleled local knowledge. Workshops are run in small groups only, so you can be certain of lots of personal attention throughout the day, responding to your learning needs. Client Testimonial: "What a joy to spend time in the forest with David, learning some new technical and creative skills.

We talked about how to leverage layers and contrast to build interesting compositions in an environment that can so often seem noisy and dazzling with detail.

Despite having to really work the “soft” light I learned new things and enjoyed the quiet of the outdoors with a knowledgeable photographer and guide." - Simon, half day private workshop.
