The tour was all that was advertised. We saw so many fantastic Outlander sites and were able to explore Scottish history as well. I think we saw most of Scotland during the week we were there. Our hotel in Stirling also gave us the opportunity to explore Stirling Castle on our own. As far as photography, James was very helpful with suggestions about lighting and composition. Seeing Scotland/Outlander sites was our main focus, and that was fine with James. In fact, he used his iPhone so that he could experience what we were doing.

Excellent Outlander Photography tour! James was professional, full of knowledge, and every day full of new and thoughtful experiences revolving around Scotland and Outlander! Can’t wait to book the next tour. James is an excellent photographer who changed the way my husband takes pictures and sees the world around him. Pictures are astounding.

Very enjoyable tour, although I live in Edinburgh, James has been able to show me something new and told me some interesting facts. I joined mainly for the photography and its was great. I had the luck of being the only attendant and basically had a one to one lesson with James. He's a great tutor, very knowledgeable, and with the ability of making it simple. Thanks to James, I finally I got the grasp of manual mode and there is no way back!

Response from James C, Owner at The Scottish Photography Experience
Responded Aug 8, 2021
Hello Eugene, Thank you for your fabulous review. It always pleases me when, during the tour, I can see clients immediately grasp the benefits of shooting in manual mode. Subsequently, I've looked at your Instagram account and you have some great shots there. You mentioned that you are considering doing one of my other tours and it would be a pleasure to meet you again. Please keep in touch. James
