SCOTLAND: Lowlands, Highlands and Islands | Landscape and Documentary Photography

This landscape and documentary photography project follows a number of locations and routes through Scotland. The area covers runs from the borders through to the highlands and the Hebrides.

The first trip created a relationship with Scotland that will last all my life. The diversity and beauty of the country never fail to amaze me. I feel so at home 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.

Highlands and Skye

The scope of photography is huge. So far the images cover mostly a narrow area of the Highlands and Skye, but the plan is to add more areas in the future.

Fortunately, the Scottish Borders are around an hour’s drive from where I live. The opportunity to regularly continue photography in southern Scotland is there.

The northern areas also include plenty of potential too. The Outer Hebrides is 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 comes from a mix of mediums including mobile photography. Instagram has been especially useful for showing images as journeys have progressed. The Two Towns and Seven Hills photography are offshoots of this project looking at the city of Edinburgh.

Future plans include the development of a number of photography books, large format photography, multimedia and more.

Photography Book

Work is currently well under-way on the first photography book. This will bring together photography from four trips to the Highlands of Scotland and Skye.

Documentary Photography | Territorial Army

The photography seen here dates back to 1996 and is from a photography project that I regard as one of my best. The Territorial Army (renamed the Army Reserve in 2014) makes up around a third of the total force of the British Army and has seen active service in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Increasingly the British Army will rely on these reservist troops over the coming years.

On Exercise

These pictures were taken on exercise and at a recruiting night in 1996, initially as a project about the role of the TA and how part-time soldiering fitted into the British Army, but the images also helped a promotional campaign for gaining new recruits.

The TA project is one project I would like to return to at some point though probably not to the same squadron.

Future Role

In the years since these images were taken, the Army Reserve has seen a resurgence in its roles within a modern British army. In future, a large number of personnel within the Army will be reservist.

Thanks must go to everyone at the 125th Field Squadron, 75th Royal Engineers in Stoke on Trent for their assistance.

These images were taken on Kodak TMAX 400 and Ilford FP4 film.

Expanded Gallery

This gallery has been expanded to include a number of new previously unseen images.

The Speedway Meet | Documentary photography

Speedway is a sport which has a massive following but is run on budgets far lower than other motorsports.

One of the most popular sports of the 1950s. Speedway was even watched at Wembley Stadium before the sport started to decline in the late 1960s.

By the 1970s and 1980s, many teams faced closure as stadium land was sold for redevelopment.

The Team

Wolverhampton’s team is regarded as one of the most successful teams of the last 20 years; being both successful in the sport and financially secure in an era when many teams face closure.

The images were taken at a Wolverhampton vs Poole meeting.

These images were taken using a Nikon F3HP fitted with an MD4 motor drive on Kodak TMAX 400 and Ilford HP5 film.

Photography Prints

The photographs of the speedway bikes are some of my best selling images.

If you would like to purchase a print then the Richard Flint Photography RedBubble store has a wide range of images available.

Framed prints, canvas prints, art boards, metal prints, acrylic block plus lots more can be found on the RedBubble store HERE.
