Glencoe – Models & Mountains Photography Holiday

A photographic holiday with professional photographer Paul David Smith and 2 fantastic models in the beautiful scenery of Glencoe, with plenty of opportunities to capture some stunning landscape shots along the way.

In 2018 we’ll be taking 5  photographers with us to the Scottish Highlands of Glencoe. We will be staying in a gorgeous 8 bed cottage in the mountains and will be joined on the trip by models Belle Eve and Bernadette Lemon. By keeping the numbers small we’ll ensure that everybody will have plenty of one on one time with each model throughout the trip, allowing you to capture some stunning images for your portfolio.

What’s Included:

2 Professional Models
Belle Eve & Bernadette Lemon will both be joining us for this trip. Both models will work up to lingerie levels and will be available to shoot with out on the mountains and back at the cottage accommodation. We’ll be planning a couple of big production shoots with the models with outfits, props and storylines which you can plan with us beforehand. The models will both bring a huge range of clothing with them too for you to shoot.

Photography Tuition
Paul David Smith is a professional photographer with over 10 years’ experience. He will run mini workshops on the trip for any of the attendees who are interested. These will cover off camera flash, posing models, working with filters for landscapes, drone flying and editing. There will also be plenty of time to ask questions and get advice on any aspects of photography on the trip.

Gorgeous 8 Bed Cottage In The Mountains
We’ve booked a gorgeous 8 bed cottage in the mountains of Glencoe. It is perfectly located for easy access to the mountains and will make a great base for our trip. As a random fact the cottage is located at the place they built Hagrid’s Hut for the Harry Potter movies and many of the cast have stayed in it. Rooms will be on a shared basis, 2 people per room / twin beds.

Use Of Paul’s Photography Equipment & Accessories
Paul has developed a good understanding of how to get the best from the location and will be bringing a range of equipment with him that you will have access to use as you need including:

Portable Studio Flashes / Softboxes / Beauty Dish / Speedlights / reflectors to allow you to light the models perfectly no matter what the weather throws at us.

Lee Filters – ND Grads / Polorisers / Big Stopper to help get the best possible landscape shots.

DJI Phantom Drone to get some stunning images of the mountains from above. Paul is happy for people to use this as they wish so long as they are sensible with it, you’ll just need to bring your own micro SD card to put in the drone when you use it.

– A range of bodies, lenses, tripods, etc.

Location Scouting
Having spent 10 days in Glencoe earlier this year Paul has knowledge of some of the best shooting locations Glencoe has to offer. With some of the best scenery the UK has to offer including epic mountain ranges, huge waterfalls, beautiful lakes and gorgeous views from the mountains all within reach. Just tell us what you want to shoot and we’ll make it happen!

I spent 2 days in Glencoe with Eve earlier this year and managed to capture some stunning shots. We both said at the time we needed to do it again but take more people back with us next time and I’m delighted we’ve been able to put together this trip and have her with us again.

I had the pleasure of shooting with Bernadette Lemon earlier this year and she instantly went on my list of models I needed to shoot with again so again I am delighted that she is joining us on this trip. Bernadette brings years of dance experience into her modelling and is brilliant at creating images which tell a story. You can find out more about Bernadette here:
