Photography holiday in Scotland

Want a creative, inspirational and motivational reason to take a break in Scotland? How about a photography holiday in Scotland – the spectacular Scottish landscapes and awesome views are hard to beat.

If only the renowned Scottish mathematician and physicist James Clerk Maxwell, who presented some of the first permanent colour photographs back in 1861, could see colour photography as it is today he’d be in his element.

Just imagine the delight of the Scottish pioneering photographer-geographer John Thomson if, back in the late 1800s/early 1900s, he’d been given the advantages of digital photography when he first visited the Far East, an exotic destination where very few photographers had travelled before him.

Times have certainly changed since the 19th century, yet still today Scotland can boast of its famous photographers, two in particular: Harry Benson CBE, a Glasgow born photographer famous for his photographs of U.S. Presidents, The Beatles, Elizabeth Taylor, the Clintons, and Michael Jackson.

Fellow Scot Albert Watson, born in Edinburgh, is also an influential Scottish photographer, renowned for his cover images on Vogue magazine as well as for stunning fashion, art and celebrity photographs; his creative work is found in galleries worldwide.

Capturing the beauty of people on camera is one angle that not many will achieve with such outstanding success as Benson and Watson, but capturing the beauty of Scotland’s landscapes on camera is achievable, promising rich rewards and considerable pleasure to amateur photographers amongst us.
