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
