On the first day, you’ll arrive in Edinburgh. We’ll have a team lunch and discuss our goals for the upcoming days.
We’ll then depart in our adventure mobiles, with Glencoe and Glen Etive our initial choices of location. These two have an abundance of creative opportunities which we will capture.
Following that, we will travel to the Isle of Skye. Places such as Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr will be both on our agenda. These two areas are a photographers dream, and of course a personal favourite of mine. We’ll see many castles and blow away the cobwebs with that Scottish sea breeze at locations such as the beautiful Neist Point.
Over the trip, you’ll have the opportunity to capture a selection of different scenes. We will shoot castles, cliffs, rock structures, mountains, lochs, cars and of course people having fun.
Our choice of vehicle will be both the Land Rover Defender and Discovery. These are perfect for the job and of course very photogenic.
Would you like to spend five days travelling with an epic team across Scotland, exploring many of the iconic places as well as lesser-known gems? This is exactly what this workshop is about. During our adventure, you will be given the opportunity to use the very best Sony equipment and be coached by me and the Sony team.
As an ambassador of Sony, I’m excited to see your development when using this unrivalled technology. It’s going to be fun! Jack Anstey and Oscar Minyo will also be attending, as an assistant and videographer to capture all of your special moments. You’ll get to see the video a few weeks after the trip.
Our journey will begin in Edinburgh and we will make our way down to Glencoe, Glen Etive and finally to the Isle of Skye. This time of year is perfect, as the temperatures start to rise and the crowds aren’t ready to appear just yet.
On this workshop, we’ll shoot at both dawn and dusk, with the daily flexibility to ensure that we can adapt to the weather. Which of course in Scotland, can be both unpredictable and exciting.
You’ll get to lend all the equipment you need during the trip from Sony. To research the current Sony lineup please click here.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What level of photography is required?
The workshop is open to all levels of experience. The only thing I ask is that you bring some passion and energy, with the drive to be out in the field every day.
What should I bring?
I’d recommend that you layer up! Bring comfortable/ warm clothes and a couple of waterproof outer layers. A rain jacket, preferably Gore-tex and a wool under layer will help. Merino socks and hiking boots are your best friend. As the saying goes “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.”
What’s the itinerary going to be like?
The itinerary is going to be exactly like the typical Jack Harding photography trip, busy and filled with adventure! We will be on the road and shooting from before sunrise to after sunset. On the evening we can sit as a group for dinner and look over images, alternatively you can take some time out to refresh for the next day. The route is packed with photography opportunities, and the forecast will motivate our choice of location. We will have a list of targets which will be completed before finishing the tour, however the specific order is not set in stone.
Where will we be staying?
What kind of weather can I expect?
There’s a possibility that we could see snow. We expect cold winds and the potential of rain, which will certainly add for moody, lush and dramatic landscapes. The average temperate for the trip will be somewhere around 5 degrees celsius.
What and where will we eat?
All hotels include breakfast, which we will enjoy after the sunrise shoot. I will provide snacks around sunrise if I can hear your tummy rumbling. We will have lunches at local restaurants on the road. Finally, the evening meal will be at our hotel of choice. If you have any dietary requirements please let me know in advance.
