What is the Loch Visions Experience?
You will be given a digital SLR camera (if you have your own you can use that instead) and all other necessary equipment. To start the day you will receive a one-hour tutorial from me, Philip Price on the basics of photography and how to use the camera.

You will then spend half a day in any or all of Loch Visions' purpose built photographic zones (see below) on the banks of Loch Awe. These zones are designed to maximise the ease and opportunities of photographing wild and natural subjects and include a purpose built vole and forest bird hide, wild flower and butterfly meadow and loch side vantages.

I will be with you all day providing advice and tips when needed. The afternoon will be spent in the digital suite where you will download all your pictures, learn and try some easy tips on image storage, printing and manipulation, taking away with you a CD containing all your pictures, and one high quality printout of your favourite shot.

Can it be done if it is raining and what about the midges?
Yes! If it rains you can use the bird hide and we also put up rain covers in 4 of our Zones. We provide full waterproofs, wellies and midge repellent. Therefore no matter what the weather you can have a good time, enjoying our charismatic wildlife and taking truly memorable pictures.
