Workshops and Learning Community

If you are looking to take your ICM photography and creativity to the next level, you have come to the right place. In partnership with ICM Photo Mag, Stephanie Johnson and Kaisa Sirén we are offering a continuous learning community membership.

The ICMPhotoMag Network is a community of like-minded photographers in a continuous learning environment that provides more education, creative inspiration, mentoring, thoughtful feedback, and encouragement than social media offers…all in a safe and welcoming environment. One of the main values of this community is in the members’ only content, live sessions, mentoring, inspiration, and encouragement, as well as community interaction in a focused environment of like-minded creatives. There are plenty of feedback opportunities, however, the intention of this community is not only meant to be specifically feedback-driven or feedback-intensive. A large part of the value comes more from the tools we provide to help you discover your own unique path to creativity and self-expression through ICM photography, in a friendly, nurturing, co-learning environment. For more in-depth and personalised feedback, we do also offer individual mentoring sessions, as well – ICMPhotoMag Mentoring – and members of the ICMPhotoMag Network community are eligible for 15% off these personal mentoring sessions.   Click here for more info and details on how to sign up.

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.

“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!"
