Traveling through the hidden Scotland, photographing the magical secrets of this truly amazing country.
I am an ordinary guy wanting to create something awesome. For two to three weeks starting on the 1st of August 2013 I intend on traveling from the Lowands of the Lothians to the storm ravaged coasts of the Highlands. I will be publishing a book of the photographs from the journey.
Exploring the Hidden Scotland
Having lived in Scotland for 33 years and having moved recently south of the Border to England I realised that something was missing in the life, the landscapes of Scotland. So after some thought and a lot of planning over a lot of coffee, I decided on creating an awesome coffee table book.
My goal is to produce a photo journal book with 40 to 60 photos from the journey. Scotland has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world but a lot of it is away from the normal tourist trails. This is where I want to get away from the everyday shots of Scotland and capture the real essence of the landscape.
As many Scots live away from Scotland I know my project book will bring them back to the homeland, through the images.
The money raised in this Kickstarter campaign will cover travel, production, and design expenses, and the printing costs for the books and the prints. During my trip I will update my blog which a link will be sent to all who contribute. To keep costs down I intend on camping throughout my trip.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As with everything in life there are always challenges and risks: Vehicle problems, which can be easily overcome with the aid of the RAC. Equipment failure, well I carry spares so that shouldn't be an issue. The biggest problem is weather, but as the trip is in August I'm hoping for a settled forecast and if it looks bad for the initial weeks Ive chosen I will move it by a week either side.
If you have any questions or comments please just ask, if you would like to see more examples of my work I can send you the links.
