What our clients say
The tour was super organised and I felt very comfortable. In our exciting and interesting Highland Lodge we were excellently spoiled with fresh and local food by the three wonderful cooks. Above all, of course, we were accompanied, looked after and supported photographically in a great way. The daily planning was always adapted to the weather/light and our wishes. Rough landscapes, white sandy beaches, 'wild' ponies, Highland cows, lighthouses, ruins and much more. Jenny and Nick put a lot of effort to give us the best possible experience. On top of that we had a great group. I had fun and learned a lot of new things. It was a great week in the Outer Hebrides!
Jenny and Nick passed on their immense knowledge of photography in an understandable way. We were guided to several beautiful, secluded photo spots every day and were able to capture unforgettable moments in pictures. I can unreservedly recommend the tour to the Outer Hebrides - also from a culinary point of view.
The photo tour on Lewis and Harris was simply great. The lodge on a secluded inlet was unique. Three ladies spoiled us with local specialities from the sea and from their own garden. The photo spots were varied, from Caribbean beaches to picturesque cliffs to abandoned houses. The supervision by Jenny, even apart from the photography, was super, she took care of everyone and everything. The mixed group of participants rounded it all off and so I spent an unforgettable week on the island. I was very satisfied with the photo tour guides. We didn't have to worry about anything. Jenny and Nick chose the photo spots depending on the weather, time of day and light and were there to help us with advice and action. Even special requests like the Highland cows or a visit to an old cemetery were fulfilled. Amazing Views is absolutely recommendable! Whether for an evening workshop or a photo trip, we would be happy to come back again and again!
It was my first trip to Scotland, but definitely not the last! As a part-time press & event photographer, my concern with photo tours is not so much to be supported by the photographers, but to be in the right place at the right time. The group also significantly increases the motivation for getting up early. The local photographers Nick (Wild Scotland) and Marcus (Outer Hebrides) knows their region, they know exactly which photo spots work best in which weather and they also share their knowledge. The support by Jenny and one of the two local photo guides was sensational, communicative and always trying to bring out the best for the participants. My expectations were exceeded by far, even as an event photographer I was able to learn a lot in landscape photography thanks to the support. Thank you very much for these two photo tours in breath-taking Scotland. I will be gladly back with Amazing Views.
The trip to the Outer Hebrides has far exceeded my expectations. Not only is this one of the most charming landscapes I have ever visited, but the journey is rounded off by a time-honoured manor house where we resided and where we were treated with the most delicious food. I would like to emphasize the sensational care by Jenny and Marcus, the two photo guides who accompanied us. Both of them were always there for us participants, answered our questions or actively supported us in taking pictures so that we could take beautiful photos home with us. They themselves were photographically totally reserved. This is something I have not experienced with other photo tours. Even between the trips they both took care of us, e.g. discussing theoretical questions or helping with editing in Lightroom. THANK YOU and I am already looking forward to the next trip with Amazing Views!
With Jenny, Harry and Nick we were allowed to get to know a part of Scotland. I can now understand your enthusiasm for this wild country. Thank you so much for letting me come along. As a beginner I felt well looked after among all the cracks, and not at all as an outsider. I got a different eye for the landscape around me and I am very grateful for that. My photo equipment is always ready.
A great trip that brings you closer to the rugged beauty of the Hebridean islands of Harris and Lewis. With the ever changing weather and light conditions we were able to take pictures at different locations. Jenny picks up each participant at his or her individual photography level and gives valuable individual input, so that beginners and advanced photographers alike feel comfortable on the tour.
Amazing Views manages to satisfy the most diverse photographer demands on their travels. Perfectly organized down to the very smallest detail and always lovingly and professionally supervised, we were taken to breath-taking photo spots where the masses cannot get to. Many of the participants were not on the road with Amazing Views for the first time - and that alone shows that Jenni and Thomas do just about everything a photo junkie could wish for. I've been taking pictures for almost 40 years and still learned a lot of new things during the week on the Outer Hebrides.
Fantastic locations, professional assistance in photography, funny tours and warm-hearted people - especially the tour guides. Top organisation before, during and after the holiday. Once again you have left nothing to be desired on the Outer Hebrides! Thanks a million for these unforgettable experiences and of course the great pictures on my memory card! I am always happy to travel with you!
