I had decided that booking this tour with Karl would be a good way to get me to some of the places I did not know around Glencoe, as I already felt I was a pretty proficient photographer. It DID take me to places I would never have found, but it also taught and challenged me a lot in suing... More

I had my first 1:1 with Karl about 18 months ago and, although I know my way round a camera, came away with a whole camera bag of new skills. This time I went with a friend. Karl's approach to teaching is relaxed but focussed. He teaches people as individuals and takes time to find out what they know so... More

I have to confess my three-hour safari was part of a prize I'd won. As a complete novice in the art of photography, and having been urged by a friend to take his expensive hybrid camera with me to use on the trip, I was a bit nervous of taking part. Karl immediately put my mind at rest by his... More

I was joined by 2 other photographers for Karl's Sunday safari. As usual the weather was sunshine and showers, but very flat grey skies which makes landscape photography a bit challenging. During the course of the day we visited 5 locations around Glencoe starting with the classic Blackrock Cottage, a couple of waterfalls an odd old shed and bike and... More

Was camping near Malaig and booked the 1 to 1 Safari with Karl after getting my new DSLR. I had a fantastic few hours learning about my camera and how to take great landscape pictures. Karl explains things really well, easy to understand and soon has you taking some great shots. At the end of the time my little bits... More

I did a 1 to 1 safari with Karl to try and get to grips with my new SLR. Despite the typical Scottish weather it was still a great day out and I learnt more in that one day than I have on other photography courses. Karl's really friendly and easy to talk to and showed me parts of Glencoe... More

I booked a full day safari for myself and my 12 year old daughter, both using our own DSLRs. Karl makes it easy to understand the information he shares - it's not wrapped up in techno-speak, and he's very easy to get along with. He clearly enjoys mixing 2 of his passions - the outdoors and photography - both of... More

I came from switzerland to scotland to do some photographs. In a 1 to 1 tuition, Karl showed me Glen Coe and the god spots for landscape photography. It was a great day and he showed me how I can do better pictures with my possibilities. The weather was "scottish" but that is not in the responsibility of Karl. When... More

I joined Karl for 2 days safari, during which his local knowledge and technical help made for a superb experience, irrespective of the Scottish weather. He explained things in a way that made sense and also improved the quality of the photographs I managed to produce. On the second day I asked if we could spend some time working in... More
