I'm Alistair, a 27 year old freelance photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland.
I've always been passionate about taking pictures - got my first camera at the age of 12 but I really caught the travel and photo bug during a month's travel around the west coast of America in 2014. When I returned home, I really wanted to explore my home country and see what was out there in the mountains, coastlines and islands we are lucky to have so close by.
Since the end of 2015, photography has been the main focus of my career, working both in Scotland and abroad for a range of companies and tourism boards for various commissions and campaigns. I'm inspired by the outdoors first and foremost and the natural world, both the wildlife and rugged landscape both here in the UK and around the world. I'm passionate about showcasing Scotland to the world and promoting areas that have shaped me, my ways and thoughts. The rapidly changing climate and damage of wildlife populations is something very close to my heart and something I want to encourage people to take seriously before it's too late.
