Dear Club Secretary,
We hope this email finds you well. We are writing to you to tell you about our residential photography course taking place in summer 2024 on the island of Easdale on Scotland’s west coast. 
Our On Assignment course offers photographers of all abilities the perfect opportunity to combine a relaxing and stimulating environment while learning how to tell a story through images. The course is fully inclusive, with accommodation, home cooked meals and tuition included in the price. Participants will stay on Easdale, the smallest permanently-inhabited Inner Hebridean island in two beautifully-appointed traditional cottages. The island, which is accessible only by passenger ferry, was the centre of Scotland’s slate-mining industry in the 19th century. Today, it has around 65 permanent residents.
There are just six places available on each course, and participants will stay on the island for three nights. Easdale Island is close to the town of Oban which has good rail, road and bus links from outside Argyll. Once you arrive on the island, all you need to do is relax and develop your photography skills.
Over the last eight years we have run courses on a number of themes. We launched On Assignment in 2023 and are delighted to offer it again next year. On Assignment takes the form of a magazine-style commission, where you will be asked to shoot a feature about Easdale Island. You will be lead by our course tutors Colin McPherson and Adam Lee in a series of activities that demonstrate the types of photographs and techniques needed to create the dynamic photo stories expected by photo editors. With our small group sizes, we ensure that all participants have the opportunity to receive one-to-one support from Colin and Adam, as well as engaging in group activities and discussions. You can see a selection of images made by previous participants here: https://www.easdale-experiences.com/category/participant-portfolio/
We would be very grateful if you could share the details of our courses with your members and through your networks. All the details are here on our website: https://www.easdale-experiences.com/creatively-re-set-your-photography-with-colin-and-adam/
If you require any further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With kind regards,
Adam Lee and Colin McPherson.
