Hello from Scotland

Our group is having a fantastic time on our photo tour of Scotland! Great accommodations, amazing food and lots of laughs. And, of course, some spectacular photo opportunities. Here are a few snaps from my iPhone — stay tuned for finished images after we get home.

Kicking off our 2015 Photo Tour of Scotland

Edinburgh Castle Photograph by Nat Coalson

We’ve just arrived in Glasgow to kick off our latest custom photo workshop!

We’re hosting two couples from the US (photographers and non-photos alike) for a 16-day Grand Tour of Scotland.

I’ll do my best to post images throughout the trip, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, here’s a sunset view of Edinburgh Castle from another recent trip to Scotland.

Final post from Spain Tour 2015

Last full day in Galicia, Spain. Home to England tomorrow afternoon.

It’s been a wonderful photo tour with great clients and we all made images we’re happy with. Couldn’t ask for more!

Here are the last few iPhone snaps… I’ll be posting fine art photographs from the trip in the coming weeks, stay tuned!

Update from 2015 Portugal-Spain Photo Tour

Another wonderful day exploring Galicia, Spain. Today we visited Camariñas and Muxía on the coast north of the Rias Baixas. This area is incredibly beautiful!

Off to Santiago de Compostela tomorrow.

Update from Portugal

We’ve had such an amazing time in Portugal… it’s a magical place with beautiful scenery, incredible food and drink and warm-hearted people.

Leaving for Galicia, Spain today!

Seafood Dinner in Lisbon

Oi from Lisbon, ‎Portugal!

We’ve begun our two-week private photo tour with very special clients from the U.S.

We’re visiting Portugal and northwestern Spain, finishing in Santiago de Compostela.

Here’s Ruth getting suited up for our first meal in Portugal… an epic seafood feast, complete with the most amazing white sangria!

Tchau for now!

New Photograph: Apricale Stroll

Travel Photograph: Apricale Stroll by Nat Coalson

In September 2014 we led another private photo tour around Piedmont and Liguria in northern Italy. It was a spectacular trip!

In this image, a couple is silhouetted against the reflected morning light within the ancient stone alleyways in Apricale, Italy.

New street photograph: Precious Moments

Street Photography: Precious Moments by Nat Coalson

Surrounded by nature in the midst of one of the world’s largest cities, a mother and her young daughter make time for a nap in a hammock in a Beijing park.

In the past I haven’t always been keen to make pictures featuring people; I have the feeling this is changing. Expect to see more folks in my street photographs!

Last Entry from 2014 Croatia Photo Tour

We love Cavtat, Croatia. It’s just south of Dubrovnik; a lovely little town with three harbours, nice people and good restaurants. Last day in Croatia… back home in Leicester tonight.

Dubrovnik Pano

My office today. Hot and crowded, but productive (and lots of fun) anyway!


More from Croatia

Another incredible day in Croatia. Here are some more quick iPhone photos from Vrboska and Sućuraj on Hvar, and a gorgeous sunset in Dubrovnik.

Update from our 2014 Croatia Photo Tour

For the past week Ruth and I have been having a great time guiding a small group of clients on a private photo workshop in Croatia. We’re now in Hvar and it’s one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever visited. Tonight’s sunset shoot looking over the harbour was absolutely magical, made even more so by the full moon rising as if on cue. Here are some various images from the past few days. Tomorrow, on to Dubrovnik!
