Elaine Smith Photography
Landscape images in Scotland
Year Founded: 2012
Hi, I’m Elaine. I’m a part-time landscape photographer and B&B owner. Following many visits to Skye and the Highlands, and a 17 year military career, I took early retirement and moved from central London to Skye and set up my B&B, which in turn has enabled me to pursue my passion of landscape photography.
I’m inspired by the drama and unpredictability of our landscapes, coupled with mother nature – big and small – whether it’s the views from my home across to Knoydart, the flora and fauna so abundant in our moors and woodlands or the wide open land, and seascapes bathed in sunlight ….. or sometimes cloud!
I feel blessed to have so many magical places to visit to capture images – its easy to think you’ve found a good shot – but the weather, evolving seasons and the ever-changing light make photography, and the resulting pictures all the more special. Sometimes I go in search of something in particular, but the most wonderful moments are when you just happen to be in the right place at the right time and find that perfect shot.
To have your bit of Skye and the Highlands in your home, I have frame and mounted photos (in lots of different sizes) including panoramic photographs, individual and pack s of photo greetings cards and an expanding range of handmade greetings cards; wall and desk calendars are also available towards the end of the year.
