Award-Winning Scottish Landscape Photography

Ever since I was a child living on the edge of town, far up in the hills, I have had a deep love of the outdoors. There is a peace and calmness that comes about when walking through the landscape, often in typical dreich Scottish weather.

When my health deteriorated in the summer of 2014, I found relief in those brief spells whilst exploring our hills and lochs. As I would watch the light dance across the landscape, I would try to capture the palpable sense of joy I was feeling to allow me to share it with others.

The huge variety of forms, light and weather that Scotland gifts us creates a multitude of possible canvases. I am particularly interested in those fleeting moments as one weather system moves in and another moves off, that reveals the personality of the landscape. Where the light creates shifting patterns of drama or in some cases a sense of calm, as night turns to day or day turns to dusk.

I view myself more as an artist, rather than a photographer. The light is my canvas, the raw material with which to pay homage to the wonders of the natural world.

--

I was born in Glasgow, but grew up in Inverclyde and Ayrshire. I studied Fine Art Printmaking at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen before running a successful web marketing agency for nearly 20 years. After leaving the business, I bought my first camera mid 2014 and initially took up photography simply as a hobby to occupy my mind whilst I figured out what to do with the next phase of his life.

With no prior training or experience in photography (I barely knew how to use a camera at the start), in a very short period I went on to gain praise and many national and international awards for my work.

Frequently asked questions
Returns, exchanges and cancellations - Prints

Because prints and frames are made to order, unless they arrive damaged or defective, we may not issue full returns for fine art prints - especially for the larger sizes (A1 & Large Panoramics). As most prints are printed and framed to order and the larger sizes may have to be printed by specialist companies, the cost of production & delivery may be deducted from any refund. Full refunds and exchanges at the discretion of NB Photography. Please contact us (info@neilbarr.co.uk) within 14 days to discuss.

Cancellations only available before processing of your order commences.

Please check your orders carefully & please read the section on customs & import charges.

Processing Time - Prints

As all fine art prints are printed to order and personally signed by the artist, there occasionally will be delays in fulfilling orders if the artist is away on one of his regular photography trips. If your order is urgent, please add a message as alternative solutions may be possible.

Postage prices - overseas orders

Prices for mailing items overseas has seen a huge rise since CV19. Costs for shipping abroad have increased significantly. Unfortunately the rises are so large, the only option is to add the cost on for the customer.

UK Postage

You can mark your order as a gift and include a gift message at checkout.
