Landscape photography is a brilliant genre that gets you out into nature throughout the year. It often requires grit, bags of patience, skills honed over many years and, crucially, the right camera equipment, too. 

We recently caught up with award-winning photographer, Marcus McAdam, who has been a pro for over 18 years and has lived and worked all over the world, including China and Italy. He now resides on Scotland’s picturesque Isle of Skye, where he manages his Skye Photo Academy photo workshop business. He also takes on commercial work for clients like Caffè Nero and China Southern Airlines, and lectures at dedicated photography schools in the UK.
