Photography and Your Holiday

KierfioldSteve is an experienced photographer and he will be pleased to try and pass on some of his expertise. Most of the photographs on this web site (except otherwise credited) have been taken by Steve or his wife Sarah.

Orkney is a wonderful place for photography as the light is long, or low, or both, and the shifting skies (they’re huge!) and seas mean that no view remains the same for more than a few seconds.



Steve is into B&W and landscapes, as well as wildlife, but whatever your preference we can help. After many years experience, our enthusiasm for photography and the Orcadian light remains undimmed….why not give us a try?

Even if you don’t want to focus on photography as a holiday – don’t forget to bring your camera!

Steve currently uses Canon EOS 5D Mk III and EOS 5DS cameras with a variety of lenses; a Sony Cybershot RX10 Mark3; and his Huawei P40 Pro mobile phone, which has superb Leica lenses included! He is also an active member of Orkney Camera Club – for examples of members’ work see: Orkney Camera Club.
