Great photography is a blend of creative ability and technical discipline. The challenge for most photographers is to develop their technical abilities to a level that allows them to conceptualise their own creative visions. My role as a tutor is to help you to fuseart and craft together and to introduce you new ways of looking at landscape.
My workshops are designed to maximise the photographic opportunities and to provide you with the best accommodation and food available in the area. Throughout the workshop, each client will enjoy personal tuition and feedback with the opportunity to participate in a group critique, which is always popular. Additionally, tutorials designed to help you build on what you already know will be given at appropriate times. My aim is to create a relaxed and informal atmosphere to allow you to develop regardless of where you are in your photographic journey.
So what experiencedo I need to join a Colin Prior workshop? Very little is the short answer. All I would ask is that you are familiar with your camera and know your way around it and by that I mean, for instance, that you understand the difference between aperture priority and shutter speed priority and under what circumstances you would choose one over another. These workshops are designed to help develop your personal skills and notto give primary instruction about basic camera functions and what they do.
Here’s what some photographers have said about the workshops.
Sincere thanks for a very memorable photo workshop in Knoydart in May. I found it invaluable to draw from your years of knowledge and expertise in such an informal way.Even the professional photographers on the course deepened their understanding of landscape photography whilst sharing their knowledge with others. You have a rare quality of bringing out the best in people from all over the world whilst teaching them to create quality photographs.Everyone on our course enjoyed the content, accommodation,superb food and lasting friendship, which was as a result your care and attention to every last detail.
Best regards,Rob Spiers

‘Colin has rightly earned his place as one of the world’s leading landscape and travel photographers. His inspirational images not only create an emotional response in the viewer but equally an appreciation of the value of wild places, environment and indigenous cultures. However, there is much more to Colin than being a master of his art in the creation of spectacular imagery. Having attended two of his courses so far, his creative techniques are extremely thought provoking, challenging one to think outside of the box and to take the process back to what is core to the message being communicated by imagery or otherwise. His coaching and teaching skills are exceptional and the structured, well-paced and supportive environment of his courses are an ideal learning forum. In all these areas, many businesses, across a whole range of industries could learn from Colin’s approach, where the knowledge and skills imparted are transferable to other environments.’
