Client testimonial

“The Lightstalker’s Skye and West Highlands Photo Adventure was the first multi-day photography workshop that I have participated in. Being the first, I was a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect but once we got started that feeling quickly dissipated. Glen had a wonderful itinerary prepared for us and was prepared with alternatives when the weather looked a bit tricky. He was always on hand to offer guidance or answer any questions we had. Glen made sure everyone in the group felt comfortable and confident in what we were doing despite varying levels of photography skills, physical abilities, or even simply confidence on more “rugged” terrain. I am so glad I choose my first photography workshop to be with Glen; I couldn’t have asked for a better week. I look forward to the next trip I take with Glen, because I don’t plan on this being my last!”  Meg Hoechsmann USA – Skye and West Highlands participant – August 2018
