Dow and Bonnie Smith – New York, USA, Skye Harris and Lewis participants 2016

“What a wonderful week chasing the light on Skye, Harris and Lewis. We both had the experience of a lifetime. You do a great job of keeping things organised and on track so we can literally focus on photographing spectacular scenes … you have already researched so carefully. Your flexibility in terms of changing weather and light was invaluable. I admired your steady and upbeat way of working with all of us, ready to step in if needed for advice but holding back the we wanted to work on our own. Best of all we enjoyed your sense of humour under all kinds of conditions. We would highly recommend Lightstalkers Scotland / Adventures and we are already eager to go on another adventure.”

Birthe Brosolat – Denmark, Wild West Highlander participant 2015

“Thank you for a great and well organised tour. I booked the Wild West Highlander tour to get a taste of different parts of Scotland. Therefore I appreciated how the program was put together to take us to very different locations. The small group with 7 people worked well for me because there was always time to get individual tuition when needed. Looking forward to me next trip!”

Pascale Dominique – Montreal- Canada, Highlander 2015 photo tour participant.

“This photo tour allowed me to meet some personally set objectives on key technical aspects as well as improving my level of confidence. This week was a great learning experience. Your professionalism at understanding the needs and providing appropriate examples and reacting to each participant was appreciated.The Photoshop session was an eye opener! Above all you kept it informal, fun and dynamic.”

Richard Hudson – Minnesota – USA

“I really enjoyed the week. You probably know the Highlands like the palm of your hand, but your hand-picked locations were phenomenal. And I admire your commitment to getting us to “just one more location” before the day’s over.  It seems as if nothing fazes you, and you roll with whatever the days bring. Invaluable in a tour leader. You found us great dinner spots, some of the best meals on our trip. The fact that you continuously shot yourself testified to the passion you still have for great photographs. That in itself was inspiring. And the best compliment of all… I hope I have the chance to do another Lightstalkers tour! Wild West Photo Tour 2015

Douglas Penman – Cardiff, Wales

This was my first photography tour I have done and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it definitely  won’t be my last. I had a great time! Glen s really easy to get on with and provides an appropriate level of support when needed. The locations were fantastic and the accommodation was excellent. Overall a brilliant experience and highly recommended. Orkney photo tour 2015

 

Helen Macfarlane – Angus, Scotland

“I tentatively went for this course but I needn’t have worried. As a beginner I found the content, the locations and the knowledge from Glen – “my saviour” just tailored to me needs. The camaraderie from my peers was reassuring as was the fact that many were people returning to Glen for further guidance and tuition on this and another tours. Like them too I would definitely  return.”  Isle of Skye workshop 2015

Mike Olney – Bedfordshire England

“My third trip with Glen this time to Tuscany. Glen always finds the most fantastic locations and his help and assistance are generously given. I will be back again.” Tuscany Photo Tour 2014

Maureen Carthy, Townsville – Australia.

I came on this tour with an open mind, never having been on a photographic tour before. After my experiences with Glen and the other touring photographers I will be booking more photo tours going forward. Glen is very understanding, considerate and has a truck load of knowledge that he is happy to share to all. I would recommend Glen Campbell’s tours to anyone who is interested in getting to spots not visited by the masses and thank you for finding me those wonderful Highland cows. I think you have given us an outstanding time. August Highlander 2014

Maureen Arthur – New South Wales, Australia.

“This was my first photography trip. I learnt an enormous amount and have a much clearer idea of areas I need to develop ( and how to do that). Amazing locaions combined with just the right amount of freindly advice made for a great trip that I hope to repeat”. August Highlander 2014

Mike Bell , Perth Scotland

” Wild Tenerife” greatly exceeded my expectations. The photographic locations were stunning yet the weather gentle and relaxing. The accommodation was well chosen to give us a taste of |Tenerife life in seaside, mountain village, mountain top and mountain town. The journey times were short and included delightful cultural asides. Glen was always on hand brimming full of enthusiasm and ideas to help us better our images. Wild Tenerife 2014

Carolyn Bell, Scotland

Lightstalkers scotland photo tours are meticulously researched and planned yet Glen’s easy and friendly manner makes them more like outings with a friend. The teaching is clear and targeted to each individual by a tutor who not only knows his subject but can pass on that knowledge with generous enthusiasm. If you are willing to pull on your hiking boots and a Lightstalker’s beanie you will be guided to special places nobody else takes their clients. Wild Tenerife 2014

Travis Owney , Virginia USA

Thanks Glen, I had an incredible time. I’d highly recommend one of his tours or workshops to anyone interested in photography.

“The dust has settled and my Lightstalkers trip is coalescing into a memory of good fellowship early starts for the light, and learning. Now I have my wonderful collection of photos to review and one thing is clear. From the start to the end of the trip the photos have improved under Glen’s easy guidance and wise observations.

A brilliant trip – I will recommend to anyone who wants great places, great light, the opportunity to learn and most of a wonderful experience.” Lighststalking Tasmania 2013

Craig Burns, Canberra ACT, Australia
“Glen inspired us with his commitment to finding the right light and opening our eyes to finding beauty in the ordinary. He helped us develop skills to turn an OK shot into a great shot.” Caledonia Tour 2012

Kellie Netherwood, Broken Hill, NSW /  London UK

“Taking part in a Lightstalkers workshop is like taking a road trip with a friend, who just happens to be a world-class professional photographer and patient and enthusiastic teacher.  Glen’s ability to simplify theoretical concepts whilst providing on hand practical advice created a confidence with my camera I did not previously have.  I left Scotland with a better understanding of the ‘workflow’ approach to creating images and feel more in control of my camera.  Glen’s passion for photography and the Scottish Highlands landscape is contagious – I’ve already booked my next trip! ”

Rob and Rachel Williams, Bristol UK

“Thanks for a superb workshop last weekend! It was really good fun and we’ve been singing your praises to everyone we know. Rob and I felt very welcomed and looked after and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the weekend – not least learning about photography and how to use light to your advantage.

We both now feel much more confident about what works well as a shot and how to use our cameras to their full potential, which is wonderful. We keep seeing potential shots where before we might not have considered there to be anything interesting.”

Lorrelie Bow – feature writer/contributor – Better Photography magazine

“The great thing about a Glen Campbell session is the generosity in which he shares his thought processes. He discusses his enjoyment of shapes and light , the character of the landscape and how he captures that in the camera in a way that helps you see everything as if for the first time.”

October Highlander participant – Cornwall

Glen is an outstanding photographer but also a true Scottish Gentleman – flexible in his approach to teaching photography and sensitive to the needs of the group both for great locations places to eat and our desire to learn about Scottish culture – would recommend”

Ehab Khojah, Jeddah – Saudi Arabia, Isle of Skye, Harris Workshop 2011

“I used to join photography forum’s on the Internet and always wrote Wooow on their amazing posted photos, but now, after the workshop I am the one who is posting the photos and the others say Woooow on them, I really improved a lot after Glen’s workshop. Thanks Glen”.

Highlander Tour 2011  Susan Grzybowski, Florida – USA

“This is the best workshop I have ever attended. The individual attention, expert advice, light stalking and relaxed atmosphere is a perfect combination. Glen is a wonder”.

“I walk away with confidence in my photography, an improved skill in using manual, an appreciation for photos expressing a simple and minimal view and some great shots” October

Chris Risley, New York – USA August Highlander tour 2011

I learned that not every photo experience will be so easy and pop like a fashion shoot – we had to work and search for good light and I appreciated that. The Small group was excellent conducive to cohesion and learning”.

Curtis, Warsaw – Poland

“Glen is a world-class photographer and a down-to-earth guy. His workshops are well organized yet flexible, and his passion for photography and the landscapes of Scotland comes through in his enthusiastic approach to teaching. I left Scotland confident that I had become a better photographer while feeling like I had just spent a few days catching up with an old friend.”

Siva, London – UK

“Second visit so I guess you now how highly I rate these workshops and tours. Lost {some of } my gear and I am sure someone else would have just said “tough luck”, but I am very grateful that you did not. Traipsing around the hill in the pitch black for 2 hours showed great commitment to looking after your customers, thanks mate”  ..Yes we found it!

Jenni & Geoff Holden, St Johns, Canada

“wish Scotland was closer to home, would love to do another tour.. ”

David Folkes, UK

Glen is very enthusiastic and hands on, offering endless help and advice without being too serious. Nothing has from my experience been too much trouble. I loved the touch of  a bottle of red wine in the car boot at the end of  along day out on location,… would recommend ”

Patricia Tischler – Sau Paulo, Brazil“I Loved it, loved the scenery, loved the workshop and all the tips and loved hanging out with you Glen…”

Alison Campbell – London, UK

“Great Tutor – made sure things were well explained at my level too, being less experienced than the other guests. Great locations, great stories…..will definitely recommend”

“being relatively new to photography this trip was an enormous help, Glen is very knowledgeable and patient and the trip was tailored to help me increase my abilities. I would come back for more trips and workshops in a heartbeat. “Robert Norman – Pheonix, Arizona

Andy Eacott – Brisbane , Australia August Highland Highlights tour – 2010 “Personalised service delivered with humour and consideration. Knowledge of the whole subject and passion for it were obvious. Adaptations to changing conditions were made in consultation. A most excellent tour.

“The week started as a group leader and clients. It finished as a group of friends” Philip Rigby – Oxfordshire, Highlights Tour 2010,

“Glen’s knowledge is beyond doubt and he conveys that in a very relaxed and understandable manner. Teaches by example and has a great sense of humour. Great course ,well taught by a very nice guy” Bill Buchan, Fraserburgh

“Informal and enthusiastic, just what I needed on my first photo tuition experience” George Bigby, Cumbria

Once I took the leap and actually booked the workshop, I was quiet apprehensive about my ability within a group that was going to have various skill levels. Although I have owned my camera for almost a year I still used it in auto. My worries were totally un-founded, although others were much more advanced I was not made to feel inadequate. Glen’s friendly and relaxed way of teaching made the experience fun and easily understood. From the onset our cameras were set on Manual and within the first couple of hours I was shooting photos that I have been proud to show friends and family.  By the end of day one I had began thinking in a totally different way about photography, it was no longer just snapping scenes but a way of producing images that portrayed a feeling, my photography took on a WOW factor.

The whole experience with stunning locations, good accommodation and good company is one I fully intend repeating in the very near future.” Janet Turnbull, Drumnadrochit

Apart from the excellent photo tuition this was an experience of a lifetime.. Mike Olney – Bedforshire

“the enthusiasm that Glen has for photography and the great outdoors is infectious and inspiring” Andrew Aitken  – Glasgow

Brilliant locations, excellent tuition..”Nick Lawrence – Inverness

In an era of sophisticated digital equipment and editing software, it is easy to be fooled into believing that you no longer have to nail the art of photography. Can’t everything be photo shopped into perfection? With an 8GB card can’t I just snap away and rely on the law of numbers to guarantee outstanding images?
Glen powerfully demonstrated that even the most advanced equipment is just a tool that will only work with sound knowledge off the basic principles of photography. In a practical step – by – step session he helped me to understand where I was at, where I wanted to be and begin thinking like a photographer – not an opportunistic snapper. By reducing the art of photography to its essence, and explaining in simple English how my digital camera could best be taken advantage of, found myself looking through the lens with a new found inspiration and the confidence to nail the images I dream of capturing. Tim Cope – National Geographic Adventure Honoree 2007,  Australian Adventurer of the year 2006

 

“I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to getting to grips with my camera. But spending time with Glen wasn’t just about the camera, it was about understanding light and being able to see something more in a scene! I am now looking at views in a totally different way and looking at the light. I feel so much more confident that I know what I’m doing and without a doubt so much more inspired – thank you!” Hazel Middleton, Tain, Scotland

“Glen, since spending the day with you last Saturday my photography knowledge and skills have easily quadrupled. Your passion and skill as a talented photographer shone through in every aspect of the day. As well as this your ability to teach and share your craft was exceptional. Thank you for all the written notes as well which make a great reference guide.
I am now so much more confident in relation to composition, shooting work flow, exposure and aperture. After months of reading manuals and books I now finally feel like I know my camera like the back of my hand. I would highly recommend your tutoring to anyone that is passionate about their photography” Craig George, Melbourne

“Glen has started something within me very exciting and very daunting at the same time. It’s fantastically exciting to discover a completely different world from just being a ‘snapper’ and looking around you and actually thinking, and more importantly, feeling what surrounds you and how it moves you. I now can’t go for a walk the same way. I seem to always look at the light, the shadows, what’s happening with the sun and try and predict what will happen. Then there are the leading lines, diagonals, framing and a whole bunch of other things constantly whizzing through my head … and I love it! So thank you Glen for a very inspiring time and your great advice.” Taio Tyson, UK

“What a great teacher! after spending 2 days with Glen one on one, I found everything began to “click”. I had heard the theory before, but has an amazing teaching style that makes it easy to understand and put into practice. Two days of theory combined with no-stop shooting consolidated it all. I could see an immense improvement in my photos immediately. His constructive critiquing also encourages you to examine your own work in a new way, enabling you to get the most from your experience with him and continue to learn from work afterwards.” Lyn Russell, Queensland

“Glen’s photography expeditions have been exhilarating, instructive and enjoyable. Glen has a gentle manner that allows him to clearly explain all aspects of photography, in a practical easy to understand way.
He is encouraging to developing photographers, giving advice and ideas on images, yet respecting the creative process and individual styles of photography. His knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and post processing is extensive, and his personal images and corporate work is inspiring, as he captures the essence of the story or place, communicating with effective compelling compositions.
Above all, Glen is great company for fellow photographers. He balances a dry wit, individual instruction and enthusiasm for photography. My time on shoots with Glen are no doubt some of my favourite photography experiences.” Lisa Owens, Australia

“Just wanted to email you to say thanks a lot for the time you spent with my husband Anthony. He had a fantastic time and definitely learnt a lot!!! He has been out photographing every weekend since meeting you – trying to perfect what he has learnt. Thanks also for all the lens advice and the info on web sites in the US. Yvonne and Anthony Manache, Victoria
