The beautiful and wild coastline of the Shetland Isles is an exhilarating place to make images.  Shetland is one of the most stimulating environments to work in, due to the ever changing light and weather.  From mid-summer with nearly 24 hours of day light to the stormy winter Shetland days any time of the year you can make compelling imagery of the wild lands of the Shetland Isles.



Richard Shucksmith

Richard's favourite place is Shetland's coast, for it has a wide variety of habitats, species and dramatic seascapes. He studied marine biology and marine ecology which has allowed Richard to develop an understanding of this dynamic environment. His photography has enabled him to visually communicate this passion and understanding of Shetland's wonderful coastal life in particular Shetland otters. Richard’s work has been widely published in magazines, journals, books, newspapers, advertising agencies around the world and has won many awards for his work. In 2011 Richard was overall winner in British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA), as well as winning the animal behaviour category in 2014.
