Alister Benn is a Scottish landscape photographer, writer and musician living on the far west coast of Scotland with his wife Ann Kristin Lindaas. Together they run Expressive Photography, a company that focussed all its attention on challenging societal norms, generalisations and antiquated teaching models. For 15 years Alister lived and worked in SW China and Tibet, and in 2017 started a fruitful relationship with the Gobi Desert. It was there that he had his epiphany, suddenly having the smoke and mirrors removed and seeing the world as it truly is; a marvelous blend of luminosity, contrast, colour, atmosphere and form.

We all have our own reasons for getting into nature photography; some to relax, others to release their creative sides, and others still to try and ease the crippling burden of anxiety or depression. Landscape photography can give us so much, enriching our lives, while at the same time giving us a deep appreciation for nature, conservation and the environment.

Why then do so many choose the path of social media and popularity as the benchmark of their craft. With such gifts to be received from our art and engagement, why do we persist in creating as many barriers and walls for ourselves.

In this workshop Alister Benn explores the numerous ways in which we can become far more contented, expressive, productive, and creative – and still make images that people get and respond to.

– Questioning your motives and re-aligning your life
– Question the value of judgement and external validation
– Learn to self-critique your own work objectively
– Understand the language of expression
– Process quickly to determine mood and feel
– Doing what matters the most – living a creative life
– and much more…

The cost of the workshop is €230. This fee includes the full 6 hour workshop including breaks.

Our team is dedicated to getting you the best images possible on every trip. We are an experienced team of leaders and always willing to go the extra mile for our participants. Ask our repeat customers. Most workshops have 50% or higher returning customers.

We will get you to the right place at the right time of day to maximize your chances of making great images. That’s the core focus of every trip. What drives us forward. We love the light as much as you do and our primary goal is always to give you the best chance possible of bringing home special images.

We have small groups and a really high teacher to pupil ratio. Most workshops are only 6 or 7 people. Our max is 9 and there will be 2 instructors. This means that there is always time to give advice and help when on location. It also means we always travel in comfort with 2 people to a 3 seat berth. We take your comfort seriously with single occupancy rooms with private bathrooms as standard. We also have a dedicated office team managing logistics so you have a point of contact for your arrival and departures or other logistical questions you might have around the trip.

Every workshop of 3 days or more comes with a free follow-up private webinar for the group. 2 hours of post-processing of the images from your trip. Recorded live and emailed back to you so you have a road map through the edit of the whole trip.

“On a workshop with ExploreLight, there are always laughs, but there are always great photographs too.  Peter and his team go to great efforts to ensure everyone gets the shot they want at a location – whether it’s the continuous checking of local weather conditions, to in depth knowledge of each location, to prepping the group prior to arrival at the location by showing past shots, to walking among the group during the shoot, offering advice and sharing their own shots, total dedication to the client.  I’ve taken some of my best shots while on ExploreLight workshops and that’s no coincidence.

The aftercare is second to none, with a private Facebook group where you are encouraged to share your shots (and where you can receive suggestions for improvement) to social nights out and emails on upcoming workshops, editing sessions, etc.  Peter is building a community of photographers who return again and again.”

“Something deep within tempted me to attend an ExploreLight fundamentals workshop in the Wicklow National Park in March 2015. I remember coming home feeling invigorated, that a new world was about to open up for me. My photography has improved steadily so much so that I recently achieved my Associate distinction from the IPF but more importantly I have met fantastic people many of whom are now considered friends, I’ve attended many more ExploreLight workshops since and visited fantastic locations all under the expert guidance of the ExploreLight team. These guys are good and are at the top of their game and super professional. I recommend ExploreLight because they are the best Photography workshop and tour operators out there.”

“I have been on several ExploreLight Workshops and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them.  The ExploreLight workshops are a perfect combination of excellent teaching, superb locations, and great “craic”. Your enthusiasm is infectious, even if it means getting up at 5am to shoot the sunrise, or staying out until 4am to shoot the aurora. I look forward to returning to many more workshops with you guys.”
