About me

My names Glen Campbell, I’m a AIPP Master photographer with over 20 years experience behind a camera. I love to travel, explore and experience anything new..Oh and take photographs .

Thanks for visiting  and welcome to the Lightstalkers Scotland website. I’ve been guiding photography workshops for 13 years  from my base in the Scottish Highlands as well as in Australia where I studied Visual  Art – Applied photography. I’d be delighted to personally welcome you as your guide and tutor on any of the trips I offer here in Scotland or abroad.

Lightstalkers Scotland  is based in the Highland Capital Inverness and since 2009 has been providing photographic tours, tuition and photography adventures in the Highlands and overseas.  Both  beginners and serious enthusiasts are welcome on any the location based workshops and photo adventures that I offer.

As an AIPP a multi award winning Master Photographer ( sounds impressive ) this means that I’ve won a whole bunch of photography awards, which I guess also means that I should know how to take a decent image. However … more importantly for you, is that I am able to educate, guide, put together  and organise an inspiring travel and photography experience for you my potential valued client.

This I have done, many times, and if you visit the testimonials page within, you’ll be able to see some of the kind words my Lightstalkers clients and new found friends have left behind.  I’ve also worked in the fields  of corporate, commercial, news and wedding and portrait photography, but that was in another life!

The Experience

Technical experience, exploring our creative side, guiding and managing locations is all part of what I can offer to give you a better understanding,  an in-depth knowledge of creative landscape and travel photography. Inspired by the likes of Ansel Adams, Peter Dombrovskis and Galen Rowel my message is simple, but effective.

Carefully researching locations and piecing them together and bringing you to the best locations at the right times does not happen by luck ( although a little helps ) but by meticulous planning and knowledge of the subject.

Keeping it simple and explaining in a language that you can understand with a “need to know practical approach” has been proven over the years to get the results, build confidence and gain an understanding of the art of photography that works.

As Tim Cope (National Geographic Adventure Honoree 2007 –  Australian Adventurer of the year 2006) puts it

“By reducing the art of photography to its essence, and explaining in simple English how my digital camera could best be taken advantage of, I found myself looking through the lens with a new found inspiration and the confidence to nail the images I dream of capturing. Glen powerfully demonstrated that even the most advanced equipment is just a tool that will only work with sound knowledge of the basic principles of photography.
