The details.

The Isle of Mull is one of my favourite places in the UK and I am very proud to offer this workshop which I have put together from my previous trips to Mull in recent years. This will be a very intensive photographic trip and you will take home a great amount of knowledge having spent the week on the Island.

Additional Information

As with Scottish weather, even during the summer months, you can never guess if you are going to get a dry day or a wet day. I would recommend bringing appropriate clothing for the duration of the week. Walking boots and waterproof jackets are a must.

Equipment

Here I have listed the recommended equipment to make the most out of your week on the Isle of Mull.

* For photographing the sea eagles and otters a 500mm or 300mm prime lens with converters would be ideal. Alternatively, a zoom lens such as an 80-400 would also suffice.

* If you are wanting to photograph the night skies please make sure you have a wide angle lens with you, anything between 16mm and 24mm is a great option on a full frame camera for where we will be photographing. If you own a crop sensor camera a lens such as the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8, do make sure you bring a lens with the widest aperture of at least 2.8.

* Bring along enough spare camera batteries, a tripod, any filters you may have (however not necessary) and sd cards for the duration of the sessions.

* If you have a pair of binoculars, these would be a valuable tool during the week for spotting the otters and sea eagles.

Fitness Level

A high level of fitness would be required for the hike up to Ben More, however, if you feel you are unable to take part in the hike, that is not a problem. The rest of the week will require a medium effort of fitness.
