My name is Marc Pickering, I'm 30 years old and a forest worker by day! When I'm not felling trees or climbing them to osprey or eagle nests, I spend any free time I have enjoying the outdoors and try to capture the ever changing light and seasons of Scotland, whether that's from the top of a mountain or sat on one of the many idyllic and deserted beaches of the west coast of Scotland.
Hi, my name is Johnny Foy. I'm a 29 year old mechanic from Coatbridge, a small town just outside Glasgow. On my days off I love jumping into the car and heading north into the mountains. It gives me a great sense of insignificance and freedom standing on the top of a mountain with no one for miles and miles. I love camping in remote places and exploring places people haven't set foot for many many years.
I am an explorer by heart, both when it comes to my travels and my work. As a Masters student (and hopefully soon PhD student) of circadian molecular biology, I study what impact the biological clock has on health and disease. Working in science allows me to not only explore the deep secrets of life, but to meet inspiring people and visit new places. I grew up in a family that took me hiking and skiing from when I was a baby, so I have always been a very keen outdoors person. The best place I have ever been is a stretch of road from Nesna towards Mæla in Norway. It has the most surreal mountains and nature and I cannot believe it is not the most visited place on earth. I have so many things on bucket list, but one of the things I would like to do when I have saved money for some time is to travel up the Yangtze River. I also dream about Greenland and mushing.
Hi, my name is Dan and I am a landscape photographer from Sheffield in the UK. I have always found my inspiration in the outdoors. From being dragged up hills in the Lake District as a child to now finding time for reflection and connection in wild landscapes. I love the challenges of confronting vast new places and finding beauty in familiar environments close to home.
Hi, i'm Niklas. I'm a 29 year old photographer from Aachen, a city in the western part of Germany. Since my childhood, I have been in love with nature.
My territory for daily outside adventures is an understimated mountainside a few kilometres from my hometown called Eifel. There you will find lots of spruce trees, rolling hilltops and bad weather. Most people don't like bad weather, I do, it is the time when you have the landscape to yourself, especially in a crowded area like Western Germany.
Every free minute I get, mainly in the early morning hours, you can find me in the endless woods of the Eifel roaming around with my camera. But it's not always the possibility for a great photo which drags me outside, it's the whole experience. I hope to inspire you with my photos to get out and explore the nature just around the corner of your house door.
Born in the Lake District and now living in the Peak District I have always had breathtaking scenery on my doorstep. After the hustle and bustle of everyday life it's just nice to let yourself go, drive down an unknown road and seek new foreign places to explore. It is in these moments when I let my imagination run wild.
It was only recently that I took up photography in order to keep a visual diary of my adventures and best memories. If they can also inspire other peoples experiences, that's a bonus!
I'm Niklas - a 20 year old landscape photographer from Germany. I'm currently doing an apprenticeship as a nurse to be able to study medicine afterwards. In my spare time I love to spend every single minute outdoors. There's something about being out in nature and taking photographs that relaxes me from a long day in the hospital. With my work I aspire to inspire people to get outside and see the world on their own. To me it's important to be outside because it grounds me, it reminds me of how big the world is and how small my problems actually are in comparison to everything else that is going on around me. No matter how bad we're feeling, how dark things may seem or how tough life gets - there's something beautiful out there. Even if you don't have the means or the time to go out there and see it for yourself - I think that it helps to know that at least it's there.
Hello! My name is Lydia, I’m a 26 year old photographer from Herefordshire, England. The main focus of my work is landscapes and travel, though I also shoot weddings and create content for brands. I am happiest when I am out on the road, in the mountains or watching the sunset over the ocean. I try to capture both the wide open landscapes and the little details in all of the places that I visit. I love that I get to visit such beautiful places and meet like minded people through my work.
