We have been encouraging our team at Begg x Co to share pictures from their daily walks during lockdown – showing the beauty in the places they live. What have you been shooting over the past few months?
During lockdown I developed a greater sense about what was around my home in Glasgow. Discovering new parks I never knew were so near, beautiful traditional streets and cafes. Taking photos has certainly taken a back seat last year, but allowed me to develop new ideas, projects and revisit my archive. However, in the Autumn I was fortunate enough to complete a long distance walk through the wilds of Scotland in between lockdowns, The Cape Wrath Trail. This is a 240-mile, unmarked walk through Scotland’s most spectacular landscapes. It’s a two-and-a-half-week adventure from Fort William to the north-westernmost point of mainland Britain, Cape Wrath. This trip had been on my radar for many years and it did not disappoint. I took away so much from the adventure, many images too which has kept me going throughout these rough few months over winter.
Do you have any upcoming projects you could tell us about?
In 2021, I’m hoping to leave where I left off on my project, ‘The Pinnacle of the Pool River’, a visual study on the mountain, Stac Pollaidh in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. I revisited the mountains that surround this shapely peak on numerous occasions to capture it from various perspectives and seasons. It is located in my favourite region of Scotland, Coigach-Assynt that I previously mentioned.
