I’m Angus Mackie, a professional forester and photographer, based just north of Inverness on the beautiful Black Isle. I'm on the North Coast 500 and am well placed to discover most of the Highlands. The iconic scenery of Glen Affric and the Cairngorms are close by whilst many of the wild and dramatic locations on the west coast are within easy reach.
Mountains, landscapes, coastlines.... As a landscape and panoramic photographer who specialises in 360° photography, I enjoy exploring Scotland and its wild and remote places and have discovered some of the best photography locations in the Highlands over the last 35 years of living up here. With a broad and wide ranging knowledge of the Highlands, I still enjoy finding new locations and fresh perspectives for my photography. The use of natural light to capture stunning scenery at spectacular locations is very much a key factor for my photography.
I’m a qualified Summer Mountain Leader, a Sea Kayak Leader and a UKCC Level 2 Sea Kayaking coach, with many years experience of leading and guiding. I am also a longstanding member of Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team.
Welcome to the Scotland360° website from Angus Mackie.
Featuring web based, interactive images and video of Scotland and the Scottish outdoors, there are a number of key themes running through the site. Compiled from many of my images taken over the last 35 years of living, working and exploring in the Highlands, this website is a resource, a shop window and a travelogue featuring Scotland as I know and enjoy it.
Scottish mountain photography, sea kayaking photography around Scotland's beautiful and varied coastline, Scottish landscapes and iconic locations in Scotland are all showcased within the website.
If you enjoy photography and would like to better understand how to compose and take better landscapes, then join me on one of the Scotland360° Photography Workshops - on land or on sea....!!
A landscape photographer at heart, I specialise in sea kayaking, mountaineering and panoramic landscape photography. As a photography tutor experienced in running photography courses, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills with others.
Whether you would like to join me for photographic group tuition or to plan that one to one specialist photographic day, if it's based in the outdoors, please contact me with your requirements.
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 my images are presented in a wide format to convey the sense of place more realistically.
Immersive, interactive photography is highly rewarding and has led to some exciting web based developments, some of which are now on my website.
A wide range of lenses, High Definition cameras mounted on my sea kayak and aerial photography from my drone all complement my approach to photography and panoramic perspectives.
