Bowmore has announced it is collaborating with renowned landscape photographer Colin Prior to host a series of complimentary Bowmore ‘Great Outdoors’ Photography Workshops.
Hosted in conjunction with whisky specialists, The Whisky Shop, the workshops will coincide with the launch of the National Geographic UK 2011 International Photography Contest (IPC), which Bowmore is sponsoring for the second year.
The workshops will take place in Whisky Shops in four cities across the UK and will allow budding photographers to pick up hints and tips before entering the contest.
Colin will take guests through a relaxed and informal tutorial on how to best capture the great outdoors, providing anecdotes to some of his photographs as well as sharing technical advice. Guests will also learn how to develop or refine their skills to produce original photos that are attention-grabbing and incorporate interesting light, mood and patterns into the composition.
In between talks, Colin will also take guests through an exploration of the three special and unique bottlings from Bowmore, where they will experience the unique warm and smoky characteristics of this perfectly balanced Islay spirit, and learn the finer points of Single Malt whisky.
The workshops are in York on 30 September, Birmingham 6 October, Edinburgh 7 October and London on 11 October. To attend, readers can simply call or email the individual Whisky Shop whose workshop they wish to take part in.
