Glencoe Road Trip


We photographers love a road trip, don’t we? It’s the perfect opportunity to explore somewhere new – or just less familiar – in order to help get the creative juices flowing. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to take photos day after day without distraction or interruption. Given my profession, you might assume that I’m always able to do just that. However, the reality is quite different – large chunks of my working life are consumed by processing, writing, organising and running workshops, admin, and all the other day-to-day stuff. Ironically, I don’t get much quality time behind a camera any more – I’m sure David could sympathize. So a week away, just taking my own photos, is a precious thing indeed.

I often have to plan a recce or stock shoot like this months in advance – if I don’t get the dates in my diary early, they just get booked up with other things. But the only problem with having to do this is that then the trips aren’t spontaneous, or reactive to the weather. Obviously, it is impossible to predict what the conditions will be like so far in advance – all you can do is take a good punt. And that is exactly what Adam and I did. After much deliberation, we opted for the first week in December, when it is often freezing and photogenic in the Highlands. Unfortunately for us, though, the week we opted for turned out to be a few days too late!
