What to Expect
This February I’m teaming up with Winter Mountain Leader Rich ‘Mountain’ Pyne to offer a photography workshop like no other. This trip is half photography workshop half winter skills course. Not only will you expand your photographic horizons but you will also learn how to travel safely in the winter mountains. We'll also have a tiny group - 3 clients, 2 leaders (unless restrictions change then there will be up to 5 clients)
The winter skills portion of this course will teach you all you need to know to become a confident winter walker. This will include: boot and crampon technique, ice axe use and self-arrest, winter specific equipment advice, weather interpretation and avalanche awareness. Rich has a stellar professional reputation and, aside from his extensive experience, he's a lot of fun!
Photographically Glencoe is spectacular in winter. We'll be aiming to conquer a few mountains in the area and aiming our ascents for sunrise or sunset if the light looks like it will be in our favour.
Due to coronavirus restrictions we will need to use separate vehicles so you will need to arrange your own transport. Similarly we will be arranging our own accomodation, so this course takes place exclusively during the day. In the evenings I will be running image critiques and processing sessions via Zoom, so it is important that you bring your own laptop. When we are in the mountains we will be following the current coronavirus guidelines.
