A MASTER SERIES WORKSHOP
March 11 – 16, 2019 | 6 Days | MAXIMUM 3 PARTICIPANTS

We never stop learning for a second during the two days… Vieri and his wife looked after us all the time, offering suggestions always very well received (I hope my resulting images will make them happy as well).

WORKSHOP ON THE ISLE OF ARRAN 2019

A MASTER SERIES WORKSHOP

Join us to develop your vision, master your landscape photography technique and perfect your post-processing skills with this Workshop on the Isle of Arran, while creating amazing photographs of Arran’s unique, intimate and beautiful landscapes!

The Isle of Arran and its landscapes, ranging from the intimate, minimalistic shores of Corrie to the dramatic, wide vistas of Glen Sannox and Blackwaterfoot, hold a very special place in my heart. Next spring, I’ll put my extensive knowledge of the Isle at your service to photograph it at its best: Arran is a true paradise for landscape photography, and what makes it an even more enjoyable destination to discover is that her beautiful mountains, rivers and waterfalls, her spectacular coasts and long and rich history are still largely unexplored by photographers.

Mid-March is a great time of the year to be on Arran: the light is beautiful, March is one of the driest months of the year and the dreadful midges are still asleep in diapause. Thanks to the unpredictable Scottish weather, during this Workshop great light isn’t limited to sunrise and sunset: putting the beautiful Atlantic skies and the fast-moving clouds to a good use, the whole day offers spectacular photographic opportunities!

If you are looking for an even more exclusive, tailor-made Workshop on the Isle of Arran, choose my WORKSHOP ONE-ON-ONE ON THE ISLE OF ARRAN: organised on demand, completely tailor-made on your level and requirements, my Workshop One-on-One are the top choice among my Workshops!

– Back to the B&B for breakfast
– Image review, selection and post-processing session, working together on developing your Portfolio

VIERI BOTTAZZINI

LEICA AMBASSADOR | FORMATT-HITECH AMBASSADOR | ABIPP EP

Vieri

A musician by training and a self-taught photographer, I am Leica Ambassador, Leica Akademie Italy instructor and Formatt-Hitech Ambassador, as well as Qualified Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP). After a two-decades long career as a solo artist in classical music, since 2010 I moved from interpreting a musical score to interpreting the world’s most spectacular landscapes through my camera: combining my lifelong passion for photography with my love for nature and the wilderness. I decided to dedicate myself exclusively to Fine Art Landscape photography.

With 25 years of teaching on my back, I firmly believe that Workshops are the best way to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth’s beauty with like-minded people. My favourite destinations are Iceland, Scotland, Spain, the United Kingdom, the American Southwest, Turkey and, of course, Italy where I settled in 2014 after living 15 years abroad.

My work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. When I am not around the world photographing, teaching Workshops, lecturing or adjudicating competitions, I work on my photographs, prepare my Fine Art prints and write reviews and articles about photography.
