Safety Cover for the Loch Gu Loch Swim / Run Event

1st October 2016 Photography, Sea Kayaking
Read More
Loch Gu Loch is an endurance swimrun event now in its second year. Starting from Urquhart Castle, the swimmers cross Loch Ness at first light, heading for Fort Augustus via the south side of Loch Ness. With 13 swim sections totalling 8km of swimming and 47km of running in between, this is a real feat of endurance.

For the last few years I have been part of the safety team providing cover for swimmers for events such as this. Sea kayaks can provide close cover safety and this year I was stationed at Loch Duntelchaig and Loch Tarf.

The selection of photographs below were taken from my sea kayak and give a flavour of the event from the kayakers point of view!

Scotland360° and Skyak Adventures Sea Kayaking Photography Course, Isle of Skye

12th to 14th September May 2016 Photography, Sea Kayaking

"....Angus Mackie and Gordon Brown laid on calm reflective seas and warm sunshine as they taught us about kayaking photography. Superb days with lots of fun and learning. My gear is all dried and put away and I have now had a chance to reflect on our 3 days. I really enjoyed our time together and I felt I learnt a lot about photographing kayaking and scenery from a kayak. Angus and Gordon were such entertaining and instructive coaches and everyone was such good company. I think I will need to renew my acquaintance with Kyle Rhea sometime soon to see if I can master a low brace turn without requiring a snorkel! I am itching to to try some of Angus's suggested editing techniques and maybe even a stitched panorama...."

SSSKEG and Scotland360° Sea Kayaking Photography Course

Read More

This year saw the second Scotland360° sea kayaking photography course run for SSKEG, based at Benderloch and Appin. Building on the success of last year, this course was once again designed to allow everyone to produce great results from their cameras whilst sea kayaking and to get the best out of their own photography.

Continuing with the castles theme from 2015, I chose the wonderfully scenic venue of Castle Stalker in Port Appin which provided a focal point of interest as well as a landing spot on the neighbouring island. This allowed time on shore as well as in kayaks, to cover composition, lighting, action shots, technical use of the camera as well as making time to review the output.

Scotland360° Photography


With a broad and wide ranging knowledge of the Highlands, I am always looking for new locations and fresh perspectives for my photography. Using the natural light at spectacular locations is a key factor for me.

I specialise in 360° panoramic photography and have considerable experience and expertise in this field. Preferring a wider scale landscape format for presentation of my photographs, many of the images in my blog are presented in a wide format which I think conveys the sense of place more realistically.

Immersive, interactive photography is highly rewarding and has led to some exciting web based developments which are now finding their way on to the pages of this website.

I have a growing number of clients and my list of commissions ranges from the production of 360° panoramic images from the summits of Scottish mountains to photographic courses delivered from a sea kayak.

Sea Kayaking Photography Courses & Land Based Photography Courses

Sea kayaking photography courses are a more recent development. Launching this initiative in 2015, I have provided a series of successful sea kayak photography courses in association with Skyak Adventures and SSKEG with new courses for 2016 being provided for Skyak, SSKEG and for the Inverness Canoe Club. Later in 2016, I will be providing a land based landscape photography course for the Ariundle Centre in Strontian.
