I was very pleased to have been asked to go up to Glasgow to host my first Scottish Colour & Light Outdoor Children’s Photography Workshop a couple of months ago. The course took place at the David Livingstone Center a Scottish National Trust site.
First I want to say that Glasgow as a city totally stole my heart. It has an incredible mix of new modern buildings, stunning historic locations, fabulous shops and restaurants but most importantly the most friendly people I have ever met in a city.
From the bus driver from the airport, to the ladies working at the hotel, I have never felt so welcomed and looked after. To top it off the group of photographers I spent the day with were probably one of the greatest groups I have worked with – working with them was a completely collaborative effort and as a result we took some images which I really love. I was also pleased to hear that one of the photos has just been awarded image of the month in the Guild of Professional Photographers monthly competition.
Our first shooting session began with discussions of how to deal with high sun mid-afternoon , composition, background choices and thinking about how we planned to edit our images based upon our decisions. We then took an hours break where we discussed some business and markeing and then we went back out to shoot until Golden hour. The light was stunning and all 4 of the children who came along to model were fantastic.
I am really pleased to be heading back up to Glasgow in January to run my Business & Marketing for Photographers 101 course with the same group of ladies – see you soon Glasgow!
(P.S I also had an opportunity to spend a morning doing some Street Photography – if you would like to see what I got up to in the pouring rain just visit here)
UPDATE: I am now running a September 2016 Photography course Glasgow. I will be running both my outdoor childrens photography course and my Business & Marketing for photographers course close to Loch Lomond. For more details visit here
