The Shetland Photo Tours aim to offer you an intimate experience with the breathtaking and spectacular wild wonders of Shetland. One to one, or very small groups, I will be your guide, ecologist, and tutor. My aim is to create and give you a unique experience of Shetland that you will cherish forever more. Whether you’re an experienced photographer or just beginning, I can tailor the day to suit what you want to get out of the day. I am also very open to ideas and if you wanted to photograph something specific, at a particular time of day or target a particular species this could be arranged. I also run dedicated tuition days which are aimed at people new to photography or want to improve their photography skills, whether this is landscape photography, photographing wildlife or underwater photography. Any of the workshops offered can be combined over several days to create a bespoke photographic experience tailored to cover the areas of photography you want.
Underwater Gannet Photography
This is a unique opportunity with no one else offering the chance to capture the dramatic diving behaviour of gannets. Over the last five years by studying the gannet’s behaviour, and understanding the movement of the fish they feed on, I have been able to successfully predict the best times to photograph gannets underwater.
Wild Coast of Shetland Photo Tour
The Shetland Islands archipelago is the UK’s most northerly island group, made up of over 100 islands, of which only 15 are inhabited. Stretching 96 miles (155km), Shetland has a large coastline at 1,697 miles (2,702 km), over twice the length of the Welsh coastline.
