Landscape Photography in one of Scotland's Most Scenic Isles

March 7–15, 2022

The Isle of Lewis and Harris is the third largest island in the UK, yet it can be explored from corner to corner in just a few days. We’ll be spending a full week experiencing this land at the frontier’s edge of Scotland, making we sure we have a chance to photograph all it has to offer.

The weather-beaten Atlantic coast hides some of the world’s most spectacular beaches and rock formations. The 5,000-year-old stone circles stand sentinel, and the photogenic, abandoned cottages scattered across the island all provide a diversity of subjects that promise to speak to every photographer’s eye.

To make the experience even more authentic, we will stay in an old family hunting lodge, getting a taste of life on these grand estates. The lodge’s very own catering team will prepare three meals a day for us, working around our schedule so we are out at the best times of day for photography. This all-inclusive experience promises to be one of the highlights of this trip!

Our local guides will share their extensive knowledge of this Isle and their favorite, secret locations, which they have scouted during their years of experience here. Out in the field, we’ll be teaching pre-visualization, composition, and specific techniques like panoramas, long exposures for silky-smooth water and dramatic skies, and night-skies photography. On return to the lodge, we’ll hold our famous image critiques and Lightroom instruction. Go back in time and history with us to Scotland’s magical Isle of Lewis and Harris!

Testimonials

“This was probably the best kept secret of your workshop. David was available 24/7 for questions, not only during Lightroom sessions, but in the van and in the field as to how to use my camera, set up for shots etc. I will definitely be going on more workshops with Muench! ”

“Your customer service is the best we have ever experienced with any photography travel/adventure company we have done business with bar none. We have done business with several well known companies, but your the best. You made us feel like we meant something to your company not just another paying customer. I can't express enough how impressed I am with the gift package you sent us before the trip, the personal phone calls to make sure were good to go, the Whatsapp communications, and the interaction during the adventure. My feeling is that you put the customer first and that is important to the organization. I wish other businesses had that philosophy. Thank you for an adventure that created life long memories for us. I will be talking about this trip for years to come. ”
