Photographing the Isle of Skye - what to expect

Landscape photography locations don't get any better than the Isle of Skye, here's a brief idea of what to expect when shooting landscapes on the island.

Winter can be an amazing time to come to Skye, but be prepared for the weather!
There's no such thing as a 'normal' day when shooting landscapes on Skye, as the weather can be both challenging and inspirational. To make the most of the conditions we can discuss the exact shooting schedule before and during your stay, but we will try to get out and shoot at sunrise. Then we can have a few hours exploring different locations and photo techniques. During the longer summer days we would normally have a break in the middle of the day. While during the shorter winter days we will be just have a short break for lunch. We will then spend the hours before sunset on location, before shooting sunset itself.
But it’s your holiday, so you don’t have to spend all your whole time learning about photography. The accommodation is self-contained so you could just rent the holiday cottage and discover the beauty of Skye for yourself.

Discover Skye
If you don’t know the island I’m happy to help you with suggesting possible locations, walks and give an insight into the best times to visit. With my extensive experience of landscape photography I’ll even try to help you second-guess the weather, although I can’t guarantee that anyone can predict the exact conditions you’ll encounter!


Be inspired
With amazing and diverse landscapes right on the doorstep, the Isle of Skye is the perfect place to inspire your photography and learn new skills.
There are very few locations where you’ll find the range of landscapes that there are on Skye within such close proximity to each other. There are the obvious draws such as the majestic Cuillins that dominate the centre of the island, the Trotternish Ridge and Quiraing in the north and the amazing coast. You’ll also find ‘hidden’ gems that are a little more off the photographic ‘hit list’.
Along with the landscape, Skye also offers some of the best wildlife spotting locations. With sea eagles, otters, red deer and even the elusive golden eagle all resident on the island you have the opportunity to spot and even photograph some of these amazing creatures.
