Life changing immersions

Interested in unique small-group photography workshops or personal tuition?

Looking for an open, friendly space to explore your ideas and develop your creative vision?

Wondering how to tell a story?

Work with us to uncover your own style, techniques and voice as a photographer, whether you're looking to hone your technical abilities to capture that classic shot or would like to explore a more experimental and abstract approach to image-making.  

All our workshops are hosted in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with an emphasis on sharing knowledge and skills. Visiting the very best locations - from the well-known favourites to some of the secret nooks and crannies only the locals know - you can be sure we’ve hand-picked every stop, adapting as necessary to suit weather conditions and time of year.  We lead some scheduled workshops and tours throughout the year in association with Ocean Capture, as well as private workshops for individuals and groups in Scotland and Italy. Spaces are limited to ensure abundant personal attention with a real focus on mentoring.

Enjoy ample time at key locations to fully engage with your surroundings and explore the photographic potential of each venue. Our tours are generally accessible to photographers of all abilities, and special attention is paid to understanding individual goals and how to meet them. Review sessions are built-in as standard to accelerate progress. We also offer custom-tailored personal development and mentoring programmes and one-to-one tuition together with portfolio reviews, which can be stand-alone or an add-on before or after a workshop. Drop them an email at info@leemingpaterson.com to start the conversation on what kind of workshop you would like to organise and what your objectives might be. Or choose from one of the scheduled trips below.

A brand new creative photography tour and workshop to the stunning north west coastline of Italy.  This trip is elegant in every aspect: a sumptuous, luxury hotel right by the sea in the beautiful fishing town of Camogli, on the Portofino peninsular, where there are inspiring coastal locations at every turn; travelling to through the iconic Cinque Terre towns by train (quicker and easier than by road) and by boat to photograph the fabulously painted houses as they seemingly tumble into the azur Mediterranean sea, the harbours and the fishing boats; creative water photography that will encourage you to push yourself and your vision; great food and wine, and a gentle rhythm to the day in a wonderful part of the world. This tour has all the ingredients of a classic Ocean Capture tour!

Flying in to Rome, then based in the coastal town of Vasto, you will be working along the coast at either end of the day, shooting these fabulously photogenic, ramshackle huts that stretch out into the Adriatic sea. There will be also be beautiful rock formations, cliffs dropping into the beautiful blue Adriatic, and a private boat trip to get the best of shoting positions. With superb locations, great food and wine, and lots of fun and laughter, this workshop looks set to become an Ocean Capture classic!

“Thank you again for an extraordinary, life changing adventure. Your generosity of vision, creativity and technique was extraordinary.” 

"I greatly enjoyed doing the workshops with Ted and Morag. They encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and try lots of new things. I really found the review sessions helpful as we all got lots of constructive feedback on the images we created. Thoroughly recommended to anyone looking to broaden their approach to photography.”

"I had a really enjoyable 2 days and was made to feel very welcome. Despite being a complete novice, I felt really comfortable asking some basic questions. A good mix of theory and field work and the time passed so quickly. I will never use the auto setting again!"
