Tony Higginson

Viewcapture is run by professional photographer Tony Higginson. Our aim is to provide the best landscape photography workshops available across the British Isle. Tony has been co-leading photography tours for several years now, covering many of the best destinations in the UK such as Glencoe, the Isle of Skye, Northumberland, and the Lake District. Working for other landscape workshop providers, he has gained invaluable knowledge about these destinations, but he has also gained a deep understanding of how to deliver a great experience to people on a workshop.

Our approach is simple. We know what people want from landscape photography workshops, and that is what we deliver. High-quality accommodation, guidance to the best locations, skilled and knowledgeable assistance both technical and artistic, and to have a great time with like-minded people in a fun and friendly environment.

Some landscape photographers shoot in their own unique photographic style, however this can be limiting when in a workshop environment. Tony is happy to shoot any scene using a broad spectrum of landscape photography techniques. This means that when leading a workshop, he can tailor his tuition to suit the conditions making sure that everyone gets the most out of their time with us. Whether you are interested in learning how to use filters, long exposure photography, using a tilt-shift lens, or even how to take more abstract images using techniques like intentional camera movement, you will have plenty of time for one to one tuition to advance your own understanding.

Of course, the most challenging part of landscape photography is good composition, and Tony is more than happy to help you with this aspect of your work. Offering critique in a friendly and constructive way, he will challenge you to look at the landscape in a new and visually interesting way, and this will help you to not only take great images during your time with us, but will also give you the skills to take your landscape photography to a higher level.

Tony Higginson - Winner of the 'Your View' section in Landscape photographer of the year 2016

Winner 'Your View' LPOTY 2016

In 2016 Viewcapture workshop leader Tony Higginson won one of the adult sections in the annual – Take a View landscape photographer of the year competition.
He was awarded the ‘Your View’ title, and also picked up the Nicholas Cranes Judges award for his photograph taken on the Lancashire coast titled ‘Shifting Sands’.

The photograph was taken at midday in the middle of June on a bright fairly hazy day. These are conditions which many landscapers would not bother with, but it just goes to show that with a bit of perseverance and a willingness to create an image, there is always the opportunity to capture a good landscape photograph.

Join us on one of our landscape photography workshops, and with Tony’s assistance perhaps you will take an award winning landscape yourself!

This second photograph taken on the amazing Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland shows the wonderful effects achievable when using longer exposures on the coast to create shapes and textures in the landscape.
This photograph was featured in the classic View section of the book.

Loch Tulla SLPOTY 2019In 2019 Tony was again commended in the Scottish landscape photographer of the year competition. This photograph taken on the shore of Loch Tulla on Rannoch Moor near Glencoe. The unusually high water flooded the land around these iconic trees, and a break in the cloud allowed the sun to illuminate the scene as low clouds were blowing quickly through the landscape.
