With the publication of Lanarkshire, Orkney and Shetland at the end of April 2014, there are now 29 books in the Picturing Scotland series, covering every part of Scotland! So the project which we began in 2007, to photograph the whole of Scotland and to produce a series of photographic books about each region of the country, has reached its first landmark.
The very good summer of 2013 helped immensely to secure most of the images we were searching for, so that was a great 'plus'. Colin travelled to Orkney, Shetland and Lanarkshire many times throughout the year and Eithne was able to join him on one or two of those trips. But 2013 was also an exceptionally busy year as, in addition to work on the new books, we were also preparing Expanded and Revised editions of five of the existing titles, bringing them right up to date and including a goodly number of new photographs, either replacing original images or covering additional places of interest.
We've been in the publishing business for over 30 years and began to produce photographically illustrated books about 15 years ago. Our aim is not only to take classic images but also to gather ones well off the beaten track, involving many miles of walking and climbing and all that the weather throws at us. There can be deep disappointment as promised good weather vanishes into mist and rain, but great jubilation when superb conditions make for the perfect shot!
... and anyone with an interest in Scotland
