Landscape Photography

The Land asks for a devotion of patience I am only too willing to give.

My landscape photography portfolio includes work from across Scotland. I have spent decades exploring our land to discover the nuanced differences between ordinary and extraordinary beauty. You can view some of my favourite images in the galleries below, and follow me on social media to see my latest work.

The Caledonian Forest

Dominated by the magnificent Scots Pine, the Caledonian Forest once extended across vast swathes of the Highlands. I’m lucky to live within a few minutes walk of some of the finest remaining sections of this incredibly beautiful habitat.

The Caledonian Forest is the habitat I thrive in, and I consider myself primarily a forest photographer. These images represent a tiny fraction of the number I have made.

The Cairngorms

The wildest and largest area of upland terrain in the United Kingdom, the Cairngorms are a testing but rewarding group of mountains that offer an arctic refuge for some of the rarest species in the country, as well as some of the finest views.

The Celtic Forest

Scotland’s ‘other’ ancient forest, sibling to the Caledonian, the Celtic Forest is the oak dominated rainforest of the west coast. These extraordinary fragments of ancient woodland are glorious places to explore.

Loch Maree

One of the most famous of all Highland Lochs, Loch Maree is one of the places in Scotland I love most. With its incredible mountains, ancient stones and rare woodland, it’s a place I always yearn to return to.

The Hebrides

Exposed to the Atlantic, haven for human and wildlife alike, the Hebrides are a photographer’s paradise, and are unlike anywhere else in the world. For the photographer they offer a pure experience of space, shape, and light.

Torridon

The glen that gave it’s name to stone – Torridonian Sandstone. Some of the oldest rocks in the world, some of Scotland’s most iconic mountains, home to rare forest and beautiful lochs.

Assynt

Incredible geology, extraordinary coastline, iconic mountains and light that just won’t quit. A landscape that inspired one of Scotland’s best loved and most eloquent poets.

Ardnamurchan

The land at the end of the road, the place where it all begins. The most westerly place in mainland Britain is also one of the most remote. Staggeringly beautiful, a place of the soul.
