We at Shutter Release are privileged to live and work in an area that hosts fantastic wildlife and the last remnants of the Atlantic rainforest. My exclusive tours and experiences are designed to take you on a journey, to witness this for yourself while providing those of you who wish, with the opportunity to improve your photography skills. Operating near Oban and throughout Argyll I aim to protect our wild habitats and wildlife. Therefore, my photography, guided tours and experiences are designed for a maximum of three people. Smaller groups provide a more unique and exclusive experience allowing participants to immerse themselves in the calm of the natural environment and capture stunning images.  All levels of photography experience are catered for and where required I am happy to offer advice.

Equally, if you are looking for a more intimate, private tour- with or without photography- than larger tour companies offer, then my Build your own bespoke tour could be ideal.

Join me on a calm journey of discovery,  capture the beauty of nature through your lens, OR, simply relax and enjoy some time surrounded by nature. - feel the shh! utter release
