GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE WORKSHOPS REPORT

I have been exploring and photographing Glencoe & the Isle of Skye for over a decade now, since my first visit in 2009. The spectacular mountains and valleys around Glencoe and the iconic landscapes of the Isle of Skye, with their stark, austere and moody beauty and their ever-changing weather, are quintessentially Scottish. These superb, powerful, magical and ancestral-looking landscapes found immediately a place in my heart, and I never stopped coming back for more. We started running Workshops in Glencoe & Isle of Skye in 2015, going back for one or more tours every year since.

DESIGNING THE WORKSHOP | Designing our Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop, I focussed on combining a wide variety of landscapes, ranging from mountainscapes to seascapes, waterfalls, lakes & reflections, for a truly inspiring and rewarding experience. In Glencoe & Isle of Skye, as I always do, I chose locations both for their unique, spectacular beauty and for the photographic challenges they provide, either artistic or technical. I believe that helping you to face and solve together as many photographic problems as possible during our time with us will, in turn, help you to develop your vision both during and, most importantly, after the Workshop, when you are back to working without a tutor.

THE LOCATIONS | This is a list of the locations we photographed during our eight Workshops in Glencoe & Isle of Skye, among others and in no particular order, out of all our 25+ available locations. In Glencoe: Buachaille Etive Mor, Glen Etive, River Coupall, River Coe, The Three Sisters, Lochan na Fola, Loch Achtriochtan. On our way to Skye: Eileen Donan Castle. On the Isle of Skye: The Old Man of Storr, 3 different spots in The Quirang, Neist Point, 4 different spots at Elgol, Talisker, 4 different spots at the Fairy Pools, 3 different spots at Kilt Rock, Loch Leathan and the Old Man of Storr, Glen Sligachan, 2 different spots at Loch Fada and the Old Man of Storr, Loch nan Eilean, 3 different spots at The Fairy Glen and 3 different spots at the old bridge at Sligachan.

Every time we go to Scotland for our Workshops there, we try and add some extra days to our schedule to keep exploring Glencoe & Isle of Skye, so that we can keep adding new spectacular locations to our list. Having as many extra locations as possible gives me maximum flexibility in my choice of locations for any given Workshop day, plus it allows Alumni wanting to come back for a second tour with us to know that they’ll be able to see different locations as well, besides taking another shot at the locations they loved on their first trip.

IN THE FIELD | When we started running Workshops in Glencoe & Isle of Skye, our group featured an already small limited attendance of just six people. After two years, though, I decided that to offer my Alumni the best possible experience the group needed to be even smaller. In 2017, for our third year on Skye, alongside our six people Workshop we introduced our first Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop with a limited attendance of just three people, allowing us to dedicate every participant plenty of personal time in the field. The new Workshops became an immediate success, we never looked back, retired our six people Workshops and our limited attendance of maximum three people became one of our trademark features.

Before each session, as I do during all my Workshops, I briefed the group with the location’s challenges, offering my advice on how to best solve them. I then followed participants during their work, quietly offering my suggestions to each of them, both respecting their individual approach to landscape photography and without imposing my views. Besides answering any questions they might have had, when I thought it might have helped I shared my ideas and my own approach to the locations with them, sometimes showing them images on my camera’s LCD screen. When the occasion arose, during the eight Workshops I led in Glencoe & Isle of Skye we enjoyed revisiting some of the locations as well, something I always find very useful.

IMAGE REVIEW & POST-PROCESSING | In Glencoe & Isle of Skye, thanks to our limited attendance and to changing hotel only once during the Workshop, we had the opportunity to do in-depth image review and post-processing sessions at leisure. These sessions allowed participants to go home with ideas about which images were stronger than others, and with post-processing pointers helping them to make the most out of their photographs. As well, thanks to our image review sessions our participants had the opportunity to try out in the field the new ideas gathered during these sessions, either in new locations or revisiting old ones, applying novel solutions to whatever problems they might have faced the first time there.

NO CROWDS | As customary with all our Workshops, during eight Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshops we never worked in locations crowded by other photographers, despite the popularity of this destination. Thanks to my knowledge of Glencoe & Isle of Skye, I carefully selected dates, locations and vantage points to make sure that even in the most popular spots there we either were alone, or we had enough room and distance from other photographers to make working easy and pleasant. Not having to deal with crowds definitely made a great experience even better!

AFTER THE WORKSHOP | Our Workshops never end on the last day! As we always do, once every Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop ended, we kept working on post-processing and image selection with those participants interested in that, either on our private Facebook groups or via the email.

Let’s see now how our Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshops went, starting from the most recent one and going back to 2015!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2020 WORKSHOP REPORT

In mid-February 2020, we returned to Glencoe & Isle of Skye for our eight Workshop there, this time an 8-day winter Workshop with a full group of three participants. Two of them were returning Alumni, one on his second trip with us, the other one on his fifth and returning to the Isle of Skye a second time with us after three years since his first tour. I was really looking forward to bringing a group to Glencoe & Isle of Skye so early in the season, and my expectations were fully met. Glencoe & Isle of Skye’s landscapes were extremely inspiring and looked ever more amazing than usual under a mantle of snow, resulting in some truly beautiful images!

Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2020

During our Glencoe & Isle of Skye February 2020 Workshop, it was great to continue developing the work previously done with my returning Alumni, and I really enjoyed meeting our new participant and sharing my knowledge with him. As always, I have been very happy to see some of my Alumni coming back for more, and previously knowing them helped me to better tailor my tutoring on their specific level and requirements. I loved working together, and after eight intense days I found everyone’s work to be much improved, especially when it comes to finding stronger, better compositions, and to refining their vision.

Thanks to a limited number of hotel changes during the Workshop, we could dedicate a lot of our time to image review and we could do some post-processing work as well. This year we didn’t have time to revisit any locations either in Glencoe or on the Isle of Skye, but on our way back to Glasgow we stopped for a surprise shooting around Loch Lomond to put one last, great sunset to a good use.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. In Glencoe & Isle of Skye we had a very good group, with most participants showing a great, positive and optimistic look towards photography and life. We truly enjoyed our conversations on the most varied topics, from photography to lifestyle, food and wine, from technology to politics, for a very rewarding social side of the Workshop!

This is the first visit for me to Isle of Skye and I am glad that it was with Vieri and Zeynep. I really had a great time throughout the workshop. They were on top of schedule and ensured that not only every participants have a good time but also Vieri did not save an effort to teach, advise and support every participant. I would highly recommend anyone to share an amazing experience with Vieri and Zeynep because personally I know that this is the first workshop for me for many to come!

In my Dorset Workshop in 2018, during England’s coldest week of many years, I really enjoyed being almost blown away. This time, in Glencoe and Skye in February 2020, there was less snow, but even more wind! Force 10 or more! Nevertheless, Vieri again managed to find wonderful places and in his incomparable way told us how to find the best exposure from the fading light at sunset or the emerging sunrises. The high mountains at Glencoe as well as the great vistas on Skye were enthralling and I was very pleased with my results. The image look-up sessions are an integral part of the Workshop and were most instructive and enjoyable. Next to the "digital" of the week, the "human" side was not forgotten: in our philosophical discussions we bettered the world and the food, whisky, and wines were superb! Thank you both and till next time!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2019 WORKSHOP REPORT

In late March 2019, we returned to Glencoe & Isle of Skye for our seventh Workshop there, this time a 7-day Workshop with a full group of three participants. Two of them were returning Alumni, one on his second trip with us, the other one on his third.

Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2019

During our Glencoe & Isle of Skye March 2019 Workshop, it was great to continue developing the work previously done with my returning Alumni, and I really enjoyed meeting our new participant and sharing my knowledge with him. As always, I have been very happy to see some of my Alumni coming back for more, and previously knowing them helped me to better tailor my tutoring on their specific level and requirements.

Thanks to a limited number of hotel changes during the Workshop, we could dedicate a lot of our time to image review as well as some post-processing work. Working together was very rewarding for us, and after seven days of intense work everyone improved their skills, creating images than were better than when we started. During this Workshop, we had the chance to revisit Elgol and on our way back to Glasgow we stopped for more photography at Eileen Donan Castle.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. In Glencoe & Isle of Skye we had a very good group, friendly and like-minded on pretty much all topics. We enjoyed our conversations on the most varied topics, from photography to science, from technology to politics, for a very pleasant social side of the Workshop!

The Glencoe and the Isle of Skye workshop with Vieri and Zeynep was a wonderful experience. It is a landscape photographers paradise, with locations, sunrises and sunsets that most can only dream of, and we got to spend several days photographing it all.

I came away with a better understanding of landscape photography, and the use of filters in photography even though I had been using filters for a few years. Thanks to Vieri and Zeynep for their suggestions and tips which came in very handy. As many before me have said Vieri is the consummate professional in the field and is a great teacher. I can vouch for that with a capital “V”. Don’t be afraid to ask for help concerning composition, settings or filters when in the field, you may find that Vieri is using the same camera setting and filter combination about which you are inquiring. Because of that, I came away with a better understanding of what filter(s) to use and when to use them.  Vieri and Zeynep have a great knowledge of Skye, and sometimes during our travels to various locations I found myself using my phone camera to take pictures of the countryside! Skye is that beautiful!

We had typical Scottish weather for our time at Glencoe and Skye, but well worth it for getting fabulous images. On two mornings the rain stopped us from going out, so we put that time to good use with some post processing sessions. We were rewarded with a gorgeous afternoon and evening both days. There were the daily image discussion periods which I thought were very helpful and a great way to view everyone’s work and get tips on ways to improve our photos. As always, we had good accommodations and great places for meals. At the end of a long day of photography, a good meal, good companionship and lively conversation are a wonderful way to wind down. I would also like to thank Phillip and Ludwig for their companionship, knowledge and humor during our week together. It was a pleasure, gentlemen. Lastly, but not least, I must give many thanks to Vieri and Zeynep for all of their help, their understanding, and for giving another perfect in oh so many ways, workshop. I hope to be back to Skye, there is still so much to see. Now, I must consider where to go next!

Vieri’s workshop is amazing. I have learned things that will be ingrained in my flow forever! These 7 days were very educational (composition!), inspiring (locations!) and fun (in a small group!). Vieri’s workshops are very practical and perfectly organized. He knows the Island and adapts location according to the latest weather. Thank you Zeynep and Vieri! I cannot wait for the next workshop!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2018 WORKSHOP REPORT

In late March 2018, we returned to Glencoe & Isle of Skye for our sixth Workshop there. In spring 2018, the UK have been hit by the so-called “Beast from the East”, a heavy storm that disrupted air traffic over northern Europe. Between that and medical reasons, our participants’ line-up for Glencoe & Isle of Skye saw some last-minute changes. In particular, one gentleman had to give up participation to our Isle of Arran Workshop due to plane cancellation, and he decided to join us on Skye instead. By coincidence, he was an Alumnus, who had been to Glencoe & Isle of Skye with us the year before, and I was very happy to see how much he enjoyed his repeated experience in Scotland with us. Another gentleman couldn’t make it due to the weather, and a third one had to cancel for medical reasons. In the end, we left Glasgow for this 8-day Workshop with a group of two people.

Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2018

During our Glencoe & Isle of Skye March 2018 Workshop, it was even more interesting than usual to continue working with my returning Alumnus since he was with us here on Glencoe & Isle of Skye the previous year, thus knowing many of our locations already, and I really enjoyed meeting our new participant and sharing my knowledge with her.

Thanks to a limited number of hotel changes during the Workshop, we could dedicate a lot of our time to image review and post-processing work. Working together was a very rewarding and pleasant experience, and after eight days of intense Workshop, both in the field and during our computer sessions, I found everyone benefitted from the constant exchange of ideas both with me and between themselves and I was very happy to see how everybody’s work improved as a result.

During this Workshop, we revisited both Elgol and Neist Point, hoping for better weather than on our first attempt, successfully so at Elgol, slightly less successfully so at Neist Point. On our way back to Glasgow, we stopped for more photography at Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe, as well as for a surprise extra location around Loch Lomond.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. In Glencoe & Isle of Skye we had a truly great group, very friendly and like-minded on pretty much all topics, from photography to art, from politics to their view of life. Most importantly, we had a lot of fun during our time together, for a truly enjoyable Workshop!

Vieri's workshops provide two key elements, excellent photography knowledge and knowledge of the location as well. While we visited iconic locations, we also went off the beaten path and Vieri had clearly taken time to learn the area and explore less crowded locations. I could see a significant improvement in the quality of my images as the trip went on and still hear Vieri's feedback and input in my head in the field back home. I will definitely attend more workshops with Vieri and Zeynep!
Anne Ferara

PAUL HAYWARD

I was fortunate to be able to tour and shoot with Vieri on the Isle of Skye on two separate occasions. He is passionate about photography and does an outstanding job teaching all aspects of landscape photography. From in-depth knowledge of the best and unique locations, and practical field advice on how to capture more striking images in the field, Vieri will most certainly help take your photography to the next level!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2017 WORKSHOP REPORT (3)

In early May 2017, I returned to Glencoe & Isle of Skye for our fifth Workshop there and the third for 2017, this time a 7-day Workshop One-on-One with two participants.

Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2017

Doing a Workshop One-on-One allowed me to fully customize the Workshop on my Alumni’s level and requirements. Our Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop has been a very intense, very productive experience, both in the field and during our image review and post-processing sessions, and both participants made great progresses both technically and on an artistic level. As well, they both went home with new ideas about post-processing, and knowing that it is possible to develop photos to a very high level without investing hours and hours in doing so. On our way back to Glasgow, thanks to a very inspiring cloudy day, we stopped twice, first at Eileen Donan Castle and then to have one last go at the Three Sisters of Glencoe as well, hiking up the hills to get to a good vantage point.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for me. Both participants already knew each other, making for a very friendly atmosphere both in and out of the field. Sharing common equipment in the Leica SL, the camera I was also using at the time, made the conversation very focussed on extracting the most out of our equipment, for a fun and rewarding Workshop!

I met Vieri for the first time during our six days long one-on-one workshop in Scotland, Isle of Skye, in May 2017. Vieri is as strong as a teacher and photographer as the images on his web page are showing you - 100% pure craftsmanship! From the e-mail correspondence and follow up you get before you leave your home for the workshop, to all the on-location work Vieri has done for you before you arrive, everything is just making your valuable time as a student very efficient! This just confirms that Vieri is not one of those photographers that likes you, as a student, to pay the bills for him getting new images - he just wants his students to learn as much as possible during his workshops!

On Skye, we went to different locations for all our shoots. All areas were very beautiful and all were carefully selected based on our wishes and the weather forecast. Different locations to different weather situations - all worked out for us and carefully selected to give us the best possible captures!

Vieri will always give you good theory foundations and answer to all your questions. This includes everything on how to work a new location, set up your camera and equipment, handle the light and finally how to post process the images when you get back home. Last, but not least, Vieri is also giving you feedback on your final images finalized after you have returned home from the workshop. This is always very helpful and nice as it makes your workshop even "longer"!

This became a long testimonial - but well deserved Vieri! For all of you thinking about joining a workshop - think no longer. Let 2018 be the year when you took your photography to the next level together with Vieri Bottazzini!

SCOTT BRAYLEY

There is such a diversity of scenes on the Isle of Skye and Glencoe. For our workshop Vieri selected some spectacular vantage points––from tranquil seascapes at Talisker Bay to a stunning sunset on the cliffs of Neist. At each location he provided feedback on composition, advised on the use of filters and guided us on how to achieve the best exposure from the fading light at sunset or the emerging sunrise. One of my favourite experiences was our hike up the Old Man of Storr, where the 3 of us carried backpacks and tripods into the rarefied air near the mountain peak. From that height, the view was breath-taking as were our raw images! We then spent time post processing: Vieri demonstrated his techniques to bring out the best in our raw captures step-by-step, so we could take that knowledge and apply it on our own at home. His professional approach and attention to detail ensured a superb vacation and a very satisfying photo workshop.

ISLE OF SKYE 2017 WORKSHOP REPORT (2)

In April 2017, we returned to the Isle of Skye for our fourth Workshop there, and the second in 2017, this time a 5-day group Workshop. This was our last Workshop with a larger group of six people, a format we retired after this Workshop in favour of our new Workshops for much smaller groups, now with a limited attendance of three people, which we first introduced in March this year with our The Isle of Arran Workshop (see THE ISLE OF ARRAN WORKSHOP REPORT).

With my participants on the Isle of Skye

During our Isle of Skye 2017 Workshop we worked with a very diverse group, featuring people with very different mind-sets towards landscape photography and very different attitudes towards finding inspiration out of their comfort zone, both as far as getting inspired in different locations went and as far as working in less than perfect weather. Once more, I am happy to report that in just 5 days we managed to do a lot of work and cover a lot of ground, as well as getting some very good images together.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. Our 2017 group featured some very different personalities, some definitely more congenial and more suited to group dynamics than others, but all enthusiastic about photography which is what counts in the end. Our social times have been pleasant and fun, for a very nice last goodbye to larger group Workshops!

This was my first workshop with Vieri and it was an eye-opening experience. I clearly remember the moment I took my first 4 minute long exposure under a capricious weather on the shores of Elgol and that feeling of accomplishment which came together with the result. I’ve applied the techniques learned from him many times since and they remain essential to the way I approach photography in the field. I wholeheartedly recommend Vieri’s workshops to anyone looking for a fun landscape photography adventure packed with subtle but essential takeaways!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2017 WORKSHOP REPORT (1)

At the end of March 2017, we returned to the Isle of Skye for our third Workshop there and the first of three in 2017, this time an 8-day Workshop with a full group of three participants, as customary for our newly introduced limited attendance Workshops! Starting in 2017, in fact, we introduced here in Scotland to immediate success what became our trademark unique limited attendance of three people, retiring our six people Workshops for good after April 2017.

Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2017

During our Glencoe & Isle of Skye March 2017 Workshop we truly enjoyed meeting a group of new participants, and working together with them both in the field and during our image review and post-processing sessions. No matter their initial level, I found that after eight days of intense photography together everyone benefitted very much from the Workshop, both technically and on an artistic level.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. In Glencoe & Isle of Skye we had a very diverse group personality-wise, making our time together very interesting both in the field and during our lunches and dinner. Most importantly, though, this Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop has been one of the most enjoyable and fun Workshops we ever did!

PAUL HAYWARD

I was fortunate to be able to tour and shoot with Vieri on one of his masterclass workshop on the Isle of Skye recently. Vieri does an outstanding job of having in-depth knowledge of the best locations, together with practical advice on how to capture striking images and teaching all aspects of landscape photography. I believe I came away from the workshop with almost a dozen strong images to add to my portfolio. I have since registered for two additional workshops in 2018!

Thank you for your energy and responsiveness, before, during and after the Workshop!

ISLE OF SKYE 2016 WORKSHOP REPORT

In April 2016, we returned to the Isle of Skye for our second Workshop there, this time a 5-day Workshop with a full group of six participants. This year, having one less day compared to 2015, we focussed on the Isle of Skye only. This has also been the first Workshop where we started collecting participants’ testimonials and images, as well as doing backstage photography, for you to enjoy.

Isle of Skye 2016

During our Isle of Skye April 2016 Workshop, we truly enjoyed meeting a group of very diverse participants, with different ideas about landscape photography, about equipment and so on, and especially about their attitude towards working together on the Isle of Skye amazing landscapes. While some came with preconceived opinions, and some were less open than others to my teaching, after working together for just five days I was very happy to see how I could reach out to everyone.

By the end of the Workshop, I was really pleased to see how their attitude changed, and how everyone improved very much both technically and on an artistic level. As well, everyone went home with a better understanding about the kind of equipment needed for this kind of photography, especially in terms of camera support and filters.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. During our Isle of Skye 2016 Workshop we worked with six enthusiastic participants making for a very good group, and we had a great time both working in the field and during our lunches and dinner!

Vieri and Zeynep are fantastic! A couple in life as well as in the field, they are easy going and very professional.

On Skye we were a small group of eight including the instructors, and we could see the most beautiful and interesting places. Vieri’s availability (and patience) on the field are limitless; the organisation was very good. Before every session, Vieri heads a short briefing with many suggestions to be able to work the location at best. Many suggestions, but not too many: Vieri’s ability is exactly this, to let your images being your own anyhow!

I am looking forward to the next Workshop! Thank you Vieri and Zeynep!

Vieri, my experience on Skye has been really positive, I especially appreciated the passion you put into the Workshop’s organisation and daily management: beside your obvious technical proficiency, I believe passion is the only way to effectively get through to people approaching an experience such as this. Through passion one never gets tired nor bored, and it thus becomes “easy” to pass even the most difficult notions through.

A really well organised Workshop, the instructor has been very clear and patient in teaching both composition and photographic technique. We could photograph all planned locations despite losing a day to bad weather. All the suggested restaurants have been very good and good value too, and the B&B was very nice and very clean as well. The vehicle used during the Workshop was very comfortable and taking equipment in and out of it was very easy as well.

Should I rate the Workshop, I’d give it 5 stars out of 5, I really enjoyed it!

A very interesting Workshop, with locations out of the usual routine and with the good fortune of having found a very good weather as well. Excellent technical support, my only wish is to have had even more time to shoot even more images!

I took part in the Photography Workshop on Skye, which has been an extremely positive and gratifying experience both under a technical and a human point of view. Vieri knows the locations perfectly and nothing is left to chance, be it locations, meals, etc.

I’d recommend it without hesitation to Landscape photography lovers of all levels, beginners and advanced alike.
Omar Bonini

CHRISTOPHE GRYSPEERT

Summarising the workshop, I'd say you are in for a very well organised all-round photographic experience with a good balance between leisure & training. During the course all aspects of landscape photography will be touched upon, some aspects more than others, based on your own experience and wishes.

Expect to be challenged not only by the highly dedicated instructor, but also by the weather, the environment, your gear or lack of it :-) and your fellow travellers.  The pace is high, but don't worry, despite late nights & early mornings, you will come home invigorated by the physical experience and the knowledge gained.

Highly recommended!

GLENCOE & ISLE OF SKYE 2015 WORKSHOP REPORT

In April 2015, I had the pleasure to lead our first Glencoe & Isle of Skye Workshop, this time a 6-day Workshop with a full group of six participants. This Workshop holds a special place in my heart, beings the first we ever run!

During our Isle of Skye April 2015 Workshop, we enjoyed working with a group of participants all showing a great enthusiasm towards landscape and the nature, and all very attentive during our time in the field and during our computer sessions. No matter their level, everyone had good ideas and intuitions to share while being very open and ready to integrate into their workflows any suggestions I offered them.

Last but not least, the social aspect and the human side of the Workshop, always very important for us. During our Glencoe & Isle of Skye 2015 Workshop we had a great time both working with our group in the field and during our lunches and dinner, our conversations has been interesting and fun, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Scotland!
