Hello from Isle of Lewis

Hello all, I have recently started photography having bought an EM1 mkii.

If there are any members coming to Lewis/Harris and would like a guide/photo buddy then please send me a message or email. I would welcome the opportunity to show you around some of the well known and hidden places in exchange for the opportunity to watch/learn from some real photographers.

Thanks,

Phil

Re: Hello from Isle of Lewis

Welcome!

I'm working my way round the Scottish islands, having done the Uists, Benbecula and Barra for the past two years, and I'm off to Orkney for the first time at the end of April.

Lewis and Harris are most definitely on the list.

Thanks Phil.
The images are a work in progress. I love my camera and hate my photo's - but overall am enjoying the challenge of trying to get better.

Re: Hello from Isle of Lewis

Hi Phil

Welcome to the forum, Iíve been around for a while, although Iím a reader rather than a poster!

I live on Lewis too, and I would be glad to meet up and maybe get out and about across the islands if that suits you too. In fact, that could just be the motivating kick in the backside that I need right now.

Rather than force myself upon you, Iíll wait for you to decide, then send me a PM if youíre so inclined. I hope you do.....

Dave

Welcome - and what a splendid offer! If I ever get the time to come up to the isles then I will definitely take you up on the offer (but not sure if I'd qualify as a teacher!).

Hi Paul, you would be very welcome. Please don't let me put anyone off. I am not looking for formal lessons just the opportunity to be around other photographers, to see how you approach a scene and hopefully to see what you guys see.
Regards,

Phil
