Photographing Ptarmigan in Scotland – when to stop…

Before I moved to Scotland, more than 10 years ago now, I really, really wanted to know where was the best place for photographing Ptarmigan? Since that day I've tried to help others by writing the guide on how to photograph Ptarmigan. My first trip took me up Carn Ban More on a beautiful day in June. Dotterel were singing and, after what felt like an eternity, I finally stumbled over some Ptarmigan. I think I spent about 30 minutes getting some shots before starting the long trip down. Now, with more experience, I would know to spend three or four...

Winter Wildlife Photography Holidays in Scotland are well underway

February 09, 2015 [gallery columns="5" ids="1543,1542,1541,1540,1539"] Well we are are now half way through February and having guided over 20 people on our Wildlife Photography Holidays in Scotland and Guided Photography Days we are having some great results. Of course we have been photographing Mountain Hare, Crested Tits, Red Deer, Red Squirrels and Red Grouse, but the highlight for me so far has been the amazing Ptarmigan. The key to the great Ptarmigan photography this winter has been how low down they are on the hill (after the early snows in Feb that is!). Just 20 minutes or so of walking from the car...

Shetland Nature Photography Tour

20/06/2014I recently travelled to Shetland on a Nature Photography Tour visiting many of the islands including Unst and Fetlar. One of the main highlights was photographing Red Necked Phalaropes on Fetlar. Having waited the best part of 40 hours by a roadside loch our reward finally arrived in perfect light. All the more special as there was no one else and the moment with these wee birds felt very intimate.These birds proved to be (typically) tame and at many times were too close to focus. With the sun on my back and an obliging subject the long wait faded from the...

Wildife Photography Workshops in Scotland – All set for a busy spring

10/05/2014We're all set to head for Mull for our wildlife photography tour. With spring coming so early this year it will be interesting to see how thins are different. In truth every year is different and it is that variation that makes the tour so enjoyable. Every year White Tailed Eagles are one of the main highlights but it is the supporting cast on Mull that make it so special. Last year it was Corncrakes the year before Short Eared Owls. I can't wait to get back to one of my favourite destinations to see what is about!Bird Photography Tour...
