Your Photographer in Scotland

Trying to find a photographer in Scotland? Look no further! I’m Karen; a professional photographer based near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.

High quality images

I’m primarily a wedding photographer but I also specialise in family photography, landscape photography workshops, and commercial photography, including LVIA photography for developers and consultants. I’m passionate about creating high quality images and providing a first class service to all the clients I work with.

First class service

When it comes to wedding and family photography, my approach is to keep the images as true to life and as natural as possible. I’ve worked on a wide range of commercial assignments and can follow a prescriptive approach if needed, or be creative! I love the outdoors and sharing my passion for landscape photography through my workshops. Before becoming self-employed, I worked in the renewable energy industry for many years, making me the ideal photographer for wind farm work and other LVIA projects.

About me…

If you’re going to work with me, then I thing it’s only fair that you get to know the person behind the camera!

Out and about

When I’m not working, I love getting out and about, particularly on the west coast and throughout the Scottish islands. When I was growing up, I enjoyed caravanning around Scotland with my parents, so much so, that I finally bought my first caravan in 2019. I enjoy walking, particularly on coastal routes. I walked the Fife Coastal Path for charity in 2014 and would love to do a few more long distance walks, if I can ever find the time! I’m also a keen cyclist and am hoping to cycle the length of the Western Isles sometime in the next few years.

I live on the Black Isle with my husband Mark and our two guinea pigs, Angus and Woody! Our house overlooks the Cromarty Firth to Ben Wyvis and the surrounding hills, providing me with endless inspiration for my landscape photography and a spot of writing too.

I was born and brought up in Perth, then lived in Edinburgh for a decade before re-locating to the Highlands. I love my life up here and never take for granted being in such a beautiful place, or earning a living from something which I’m genuinely passionate about.
