Welcome to Arran in Focus, based on the beautiful Isle of Arran. We offer full and half day photography workshops and tours for beginners and more advanced photography enthusiasts, along with freelance and wedding services.
The Isle of Arran, often referred to as Scotland in Miniature, has photographic opportunities around every corner. From fabulous landscapes to a vast array of wildlife, Arran has it all, including the ‘Big 5’, golden eagle, red squirrel, otter, red deer and seal.
The advent of the digital camera, whether a compact or sophisticated SLR, brings photography into nearly every household and huge amounts of photographs populate social media and the internet. It’s lovely to be able to capture the essence of a location or experience, so that this can be shared or enjoyed at a later date. Arran in Focus is a small photographic business run by Jackie who trained as a crime scene photographer before moving to Arran.
Arran in Focus offers full and half day photography courses for beginners and more advanced enthusiasts. The most popular workshop is ‘Get off Auto’ which combines relaxed teaching while going out and about on a mini tour. Other workshops include ‘Wild about water’, which looks at how to photograph water and create lovely silky ribbons and ‘Up close with macro’, looking specifically at close up techniques for flowers and insects. Workshops are tailor made to fit the group or individual so that everyone achieves their own goal. A workshop will run with just one person or up to a maximum of 4 people. Participants can bring their own camera or book and use one belonging to the business. Additional equipment such as tripods and filters are available for use by all students.
It doesn't matter if you have a compact camera or a full SLR, we can tailor the course to suit you and improve your skills.
At the end of your workshop you can have your favourite image printed to take away with you.
