Photographing Autumn colour in Scotland is a race against the elements. There is an inevitability that at some point the storms that work there way up the East coast of the US will make their way across the Atlantic and eventually batter themselves against all of those delicately attached and beautifully coloured leaves.
The later the storms come, the better the conditions can get, but also the more delicate the attachment those leaves have. A late storm can remove nearly all of the Autumn colour in a day. Quite often though, an early set of storms can strip the leaves just as they’re turning, leaving the birch denuded with all but a little crown of yellow. This year has been pretty good so far and although the weather has been rainy, the winds have been gentle and we’ve had a chance to get out to do some photography and even a couple of days out with our co-founder Joe Cornish, making the most of the colour above Kinlochleven. Autumn isn’t over until the last leaves fall though and there are usually remnants around until mid-December so it’s far from over yet. For now though, I’ll be hiding inside with a good book watching the storms batter the windows.

I have come to think of my photographic approach as that of losing myself to the experience of seeing, where seeing includes other senses, as well as that of the eyes. more
Although we may differ in our preference of where and how we feel most at ease and most motivated to photograph, we all have the choice to consider such situations as “summons to seriousness.” more

With the exception of my tertiary education, I have spent my life in Africa, having grown up in Kenya. I grew up under big skies and the equatorial sun. more
Huibo’s image of the Witch’s Finger (Trølkonufingur) in the Faroe Islands is a great example of emotive feeling exploding out of an image. To say it’s got drama is to do it a disservice. The view here is epic, monumental, awesome in the Burkian sense of the sublime. more
