THE ISLE OF ARRAN WORKSHOP ONE-ON-ONE ONE

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.

In March 2019, I’ll put my years of 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!

THE ISLE OF ARRAN ALUMNI’S COMMENTS

Vieri researches an area multiple times out of his own pocket before bringing people there, he also knows what he is doing unlike many of the “workshop leaders/frauds” out there.

VIERI BOTTAZZINI

LEICA AMBASSADOR | FORMATT-HITECH FEATURED ARTIST | ABIPP EP

Vieri Bottazzini (Italy, 2016)

Vieri Bottazzini (Italy, 2016)

Musician by training and lifetime long photographer, I am Certified by Leica and Formatt-Hitech Featured Artist, as well as Qualified Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) and European Photographer (EP). Starting April 2018, I am Artistic Director of “The Art of Landscape”, a joint project with ImagOrbetello Photography Festival dedicated to Fine Art landscape photography.

During a two-decades long career as a solo artist in classical music, in the early 2000’s I started working as a professional photographer, photographing mostly musicians, from classical to rock and pop stars, and actors. My work has been published by Rolling Stones, Cosmo, Trendsetter and Abitare among others. As well, while living in Istanbul I worked intensely with street photography, and thanks to this work I got my first solo exhibitions, in Italy, Turkey and Finland.

Since 2010, I moved for good 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. Since then, my Fine Art work has been published and exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections.

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, England, the American Southwest, Turkey and, of course, Italy where I settled in 2014 after living 15 years abroad.

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. Most of all, I keep studying photography every day, amazed by what I still have to learn.
