I joined 5 other, vastly more experienced photographers, on a 5 day workshop under the expert pupilage of Bruce. We split our photographic time between two beaches on the western side of Eigg, affording us an ever present view of the dramatic backdrop of the Isle of Rum.
Early morning sunrise shots were followed by a hearty breakfast served up by Sue at our superb accommodation, Lageorna. The rest of the morning and early afternoon were spent constructively reviewing our images. Bruce has a great ability to teach his approach to photography by assessing our images and offering nuggets of advice.
The evening light was captured at one of two spectacular beaches, Laig Beach & the Singing Sands. During each shoot Bruce would share his time between each of us, giving advice and suggesting subtle changes of camera angle or emphasis to help with our composition.
Would I go again, oh yes! Would I choose to go with Bruce Percy again? Without a doubt. I loved the chance to develop my photographic technique and visualisation but most of all I loved being back in the Western Isles. Eigg is a wonderful island and is blessed with two of the most amazing beaches in the whole of Scotland.
