The editor of The Perthshire Magazine, Abigail, recently joined me for an “Understanding Your Camera” photography workshop. Since she was keen to try photographing a few different subjects, we went to the wonderful Kinnoull Hill in Perth. This enabled us to try everything from macro to animals to landscapes!
Abigail did very well on the workshop. Having not used the camera before, we slowly transitioned from automatic to aperture/shutter priority and within no time she was shooting on manual! She’s a very quick learner and it was great to see her confidence grow in such a short space of time.
She got some great shots during the session and has continued practicing her skills since. Here are some of her favourite photographs that she’s taken so far!
It was an absolute pleasure to teach Abigail and see her progress so quickly with her photography!
After the workshop, they were kind enough to write a wonderful review for the magazine which you can read below:
If you would like help with your photography, please feel free to get in touch. All workshops are offered on a private 1-1 basis so you can learn at your own pace. Or if you prefer, why not bring along a friend to share the day with you?

This year I am delighted to be one of the Artists In Residence who will be exhibiting at The Bield. That means that this year you’ll be able to meet me and browse my work there instead of at my studio in Scone. And of course the big benefit of this is that you’ll get to see so many other beautiful works by other artists at the same venue!
Dates: 31 August to 15 September
Address: The Bield at Blackruthven, Tibbermore, Perth, PH1 1PY
Directions: Follow the A85 Crieff road west from Perth. At the crossroads, take the left turn toward Madderty/Tibbermore. The Bield is 1/2 a mile ahead on the left.
