Kersten has recently moved to Scotland. His workshops will resume later in 2018 in and around the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. Please contact Kersten direct to discuss possible dates for Autumn / Winter 2018.

The Under Celtic Skies photography workshops are tailored to suit your individual needs. Run by professional photographer Kersten Howard, in and around the beautiful Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park in Scotland. The workshops are designed around you, whether you are new to photography, or have had many years’ experience. During a workshop Kersten will always be on hand to provide you with instructions and feedback to help improve your landscape photography.

What will I get?

Choose from either a 4, 6 or 8 hour workshop. During this time Kersten will be on hand to offer his guidance to help you develop your photographic skills, in a variety of beautiful locations throughout the Loch Lomond area.

You choose what you want to learn, be it getting to know your camera, use of filters, basic editing techniques etc. Kersten will select the locations to try to optimise your time with him, unless you have a particular place you’d like to visit.

After the workshop Kersten will happily answer emails if you require any additional photographic help.


Bring along your DSLR with your selection of lenses. A tripod, a selection of Neutral Density (ND) Grad filters and a polariser would also be of benefit, as would a cable release and a hotshoe spirit level. Don’t worry if you don’t have all of these items as Kersten can direct you where to get them, or if you ask nicely, you may be able to borrow some of the spare bits of equipment that Kersten has floating around (subject to availability).

The Weather

Something we cannot control. If, on the day beforehand, the weather forecast is looking very bad the workshop can be rearranged for a future date, convenient to both parties. Please bear in mind that sometimes the best pictures are captured when the weather isn’t at its best. Please ensure that you bring clothing that is suitable for all the extremes that the Scottish weather can throw at us.


Kersten’s workshops are primarily run in and around the beautiful Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park in Scotland. The prices quoted are for courses in this area.

If you require Kersten to visit you, then there will be an additional charge for travelling, subsistence and possibly accommodation. This charge depends on where you are based. For further details contact Kersten directly.

Please note that if you come to Scotland, Kersten will have local knowledge which will be useful when out on location.
