Otter photography days:
The Isle of Mull off the west Coast of Scotland is possibly my favourite wildlife destination in the world. Home to the enigmatic and elusive Otter and the spectacular White tailed eagle, but also endangered Hen harriers, Golden eagles, short eared owls and a miriad of other wonderful wildlife. The weather here is changeable and creates the legendary Mull light which is a photographers dream. I try to get to Mull as often as I can and will be running photography tuition trips here throughout the year. This year 2021 we obviously have potential travel restrictions due to the Corona virus and any bookings will be with this in mind We anticipate a return to normality from June 2021 and will be able to continue our trips with due concern and observance of any government recommendations, we will be running one on one trips or two people maximum where we maintain social distancing, travelling separately etc The situation changes daily but we anticipate increased demand from those of us wanting to spend time close to nature in wild places, so advise booking as soon as possible!
A typical day is spent out looking for wildlife, usually prioritising otters and eagles, I will be teaching you techniques for finding, watching and photographing the otters, taking care to explain the priority of the wildlifes well being and also helping you get the best from your cameras capabilities. Weatherproof, dark clothing is required and this should also be warm and quiet! We will stop at a pub or cafe for lunch and the day will be relaxed but full of interest and photographic opportunities, the aim being to return with full camera cards and memories to last a life time!
Usually we will meet you at your choice of accommodation and drop you off in the evening . We can help you with finding accommodation and transport to Mull.
Contact me ASAP if you want to join me for one, two or three day trips on Mull where we will be prioritising species like the otter and eagles but not forgetting the other wildlife on this fabulous island. Our most recent trips, were absolutely amazing and we are looking forward to this Autumn and winter with great anticipation. Prices start at £180 per day per person .

The magical Mull light shows off this huge bird against the mountain backdrop.
Looking a bit dishevelled but just drying her hair in the seaweed!
A close encounter is an exciting thing, always allow the animal to approach you rather than you trying to sneak up on it!

Otters need to wash the salt water from their coats after feeding at sea.
