Inspired by the unique beauty of the coastal fringes of Moray Jim Robertson is a self taught amateur photographer living in Lossiemouth. He was presented in 2003 with the James Payton Memorial Medal by the Royal Meteorological Society (Scottish Centre) for what was judged to be the outstanding weather photograph of the year. He has provided images for websites and publications for The University of Edinburgh, Scottish Natural Heritage, Great British Landscapes, Scottish Nature Photography and The Moray Council.
Jim is a contributor to the Open Source Photography Guides project and is the author of ‘A Photographers Guide to Lossiemouth’. This on-line guide is designed for landscape photographers who wish to photograph seascapes / landscapes from the beaches at Lossiemouth.
In March of this year four of Jim’s images were selected for the final judging stages in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards. ‘Minimal Blue’ and ‘Hopeman Pebbles’ were selected in the Abstract category with ‘Catching The Tops’ along with ‘Winter Light’ being selected in the Scottish Landscape category.
Judged by Neil McIntyre, Lorne Gill and Niall Irvine ‘Catching The Tops’ was placed 2nd in the Scottish Landscape Category.
“I’ve been into SLR landscape photography for a long time. (Remember Zenit E’s, Olympus OM1’s and Nikkormat FT2’s?) However it has been the advances in the field of digital SLR photography which has really brought me back into landscape photography. Living all of my life in Lossiemouth in close proximity to the sea has been a great inspiration for me as has the work of Ian Cameron. His professional regard for quality gave me the final inspirational ‘push’.”
