What you will visit:
Expert-guided photo excursion through scenic Scotland
Designed for photographers of all levels, this professionally led photo excursion will feature a visit to some of Scotland's most iconic areas. Travel to Hill House just outside Glasgow, an exceptional example of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's vision of art deco. At Duck Bay, find a picture-perfect spot on the banks of Loch Lomond, and in the quaint village of Balmaha, where a small bay is filled with colorful boats, if you wish, climb to the summit of the island, Conic Hill, for panoramic vistas.
Meet photographer Bill Kean
Renowned for his landscape work of the Scottish islands and mainland, Bill Kean is a master at landscape photography. His work has graced several national newspapers (The Herald, The Scotsman) and the Scotsman Calendar (150,000 circulation worldwide). He was also a finalist in the Scots Magazine Photographer of the Year honors. Throughout the day, learn more of the area's history as well as photography instruction, including how to find the best locations to shoot, optimal exposure, use of flash, depth of field, and selective focus, all while capturing the stunning scenery.
What you will see along the way:
A scenic drive through the ruggedly beautiful Scottish landscape showcases charming villages, windswept vistas, and the awe-inspiring beauty of Loch Lomond. The second-largest freshwater lake in Scotland, it's dotted with islands on its southern end and resembles a fjord at its northern end.
