SCOTLAND: Lowlands, Highlands and Islands | Landscape/Documentary Photography
This landscape and documentary photography project follows a number of routes through Scotland from the borders through to the highlands and the Hebrides.
The first trip cemented a relationship with Scotland that will last all my life. The diversity and beauty of the country never fails to amaze me, and i never feel more at home than when i’m amongst the mountains and lochs of the Highlands. Much like the Norfolk project, this is a photography project with no end date. I imagine that it will be a ‘work in progress’ until the time i can no longer physically continue to take images.
The scope of the photography is huge. So far the images cover mostly a narrow area of the Highlands and Skye, but the aim is to add more areas in the future. Fortunately the Scottish Borders are around an hour’s drive from where i live, so the opportunity to regularly continue the photography in the southern Scotland is there. The northern areas also include plenty of potential too with the Outer Hebrides being one area of interest for future project development. It’s going to be a great project to contribute to over the coming years.
The photography has been a mix of mediums including mobile photography. Instagram has been especially useful for showing images as journeys have progressed – certainly a good section of the 700+ images on my Instagram page have been taken in Scotland with the Two Towns photography being an prominent offshoot of this project.
Future plans include the development of some photobooks, large format photography, multimedia and more. Work is currently well under-way on a photography book bringing images together from four trips to the Highlands of Scotland and Skye.
Prints are available and can be purchased here or direct from the photographer.
