Colin Prior is known as one of the world’s most respected landscape photographers. Born in Glasgow, his proximity to the Scottish Highlands shaped his passion for the outdoors and fostered his interest in photography. His photographs capture sublime moments of light and land, which are the result of meticulous planning and preparation and often take years to achieve. Prior is a photographer who seeks out patterns in the landscape and the hidden links between reality and the imagination.
His six books include The World’s Wild Places and Living Tribes, which were published internationally. He is currently working on a four-year project documenting the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.

Colin is fantastic - He took us to sights that were interesting and challenging for photography. He gave us a tutorial that was well done and full of good points that we could then use in the field. I would go on another tour with him in a heartbeat.
