Will Clarkson "Game" project takes a contrary point of view to many purist landscape artists work who concentrate on the knee-jerk environmental point of view and presents the story of the gamekeeper, the oft maligned arch enemy of wildlife and landscape lover. We had a chance to put a few questions to Will about this alternative approach.

Can you give a bit of background about your introduction to photography and what motivated you toward the BA at the University of Arts London?

I started with (I think) a 35mm automatic canon camera when I was 18. Combined with a little travelling it gave me real pleasure, and photography become something I always wanted to explore. On leaving university in 2007, though, I ended up working in the City. It was great fun, but I soon realised it wasn’t for me, so I left after 4 years. By this point photography had become an overgrown hobby and I was spending more and more of my time with it. Being 27 at the time, I felt this was my last chance to take a big risk and try my hand professionally.

    I work in Estate management in Aberdeenshire and find this article extremely interesting with Will’s perspective being a highly relevant alternative outlook on Scotland’s landscapes and its uses.

    Thanks!
