ONE TO ONE PHOTO WORKSHOPS IN SCOTLAND
A half-day or single days practical tuition or multiple days guidance in the field with expert tuition and support. One to one photo workshops in Scotland offer the most basic introductions into photography or if you’re more advanced, sessions that explore more contemporary techniques and challenging locations. Each session includes a retrospective critique and review of your own recent work. All one to one workshops are tailored to your individual requirements and a brief chat at the start will give Glen an insight into where your at.
