canon pro name: Morag Pater­son cam­era:

Canon eos 5D Mk IV

Morag, 43, has col­lab­o­rated with her hus­band Ted Leem­ing as a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher for over ten years, sell­ing prints, run­ning group and pri­vate work­shops, men­tor­ing and tak­ing on a small num­ber of com­mis­sions. Their work varies from tra­di­tional land­scape cap­ture to ab­stract and im­pres­sion­ist pho­tog­ra­phy, ex­plor­ing the nat­u­ral world from the small­est crevices to ma­jes­tic panora­mas. As keen en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists they have also cre­ated port­fo­lios ad­dress­ing cli­mate change, and live on a tenacre wind-pow­ered small­hold­ing in Dum­fries and Gal­loway which they are grad­u­ally re­plant­ing with na­tive trees.

Ap­pren­tice name: Janet Hog­gan cam­era:

Canon eos 5D Mk III

Janet is 49 and a keen am­a­teur Canon pho­tog­ra­pher liv­ing in Falkirk, Scot­land. She works with her hus­band in the trans­port busi­ness and first picked up a DSLR cam­era five years when she bought a Canon EOS 550D, then last year up­graded to a 5D Mark III. She reg­u­larly reads Pho­to­plus, and likes to pho­to­graph land­scapes, seascapes and wa­ter­falls – but asked for our help in tak­ing her skills fur­ther.

Fact­file pho­tog­ra­phy work­shops

morag and Ted lead dy­namic and friendly work­shops for groups and in­di­vid­u­als through­out the year in Ice­land, Italy, the Faroe Is­lands and Ire­land, as well as from their base in the South­ern Up­lands of Scot­land, a Unescodes­ig­nated Bio­sphere Re­serve and Dark Sky Park. Teach­ing pho­tog­ra­phers of all abil­i­ties, they cover every­thing from tra­di­tional to ab­stract im­age cap­ture, and also help as­pir­ing pho­tog­ra­phers ex­plore their in­di­vid­ual vi­sion and style – with guid­ance on pro­gress­ing from am­a­teur to pro­fes­sional, par­tic­u­larly with re­spect to sell­ing work. www.leem­ing­pa­ter­son.com
