Margaret Soraya

Margaret Soraya is a professional landscape photographer based in the Highlands of Scotland. She has a passion for the coast and waves in particular and frequently travels solo around the Scottish islands in pursuit of the perfect wave.


As a child, my earliest and most significant and happiest memories belong to days spent by the sea.

The sound of waves crashing, the smell of sea air, feel of the sand bring with them associations of contentment and an affinity with water. This has become the driving force behind much of my landscape photography.

I spend much of my time on the Scottish islands seeking out remote places and to create imagery. All of my most powerful images have been made in times of aloneness. It is solitude that allows me to be at my most creative. The images in this portfolio were all made on the beaches of the Isle of Harris during the winter months when the weather was wild and the beaches were empty.
