Shona specialises in Seascape and ICM photography, heavily influenced by contemporary art and abstract minimalism, Shona has spent the past few years developing her love for intentional camera movement (ICM).
Often described as creating a sense of calm through her imagery, Shona manages to capture solitude, tranquillity and haunting beauty in her work, all whilst maintaining her distinctive painterly style.
Known as an inspirational leader, Shona also has a wealth of experience in coaching, mentoring and developing teams, having worked at a Senior level in Retail Management for 20+ years. Shona loves nothing more than helping people reach their full potential.
Shona predominantly spends most of her time on the beaches of East Lothian, with more than 40 miles of coastline, an array of beautiful pristine sandy beaches, each ideal for intentional camera movement (ICM photography) and a great location for photography tuition.
Other locations also close to Shona are Fife, the Scottish Borders, and the spectacular Northumberland coastline. All of which Shona knows well.
If you would like Shona to travel to you, please send us a request here. Shona is more than happy to travel but this would incur an additional cost to cover any travel and / or accommodation needed.
Following an initial consultation to get to know you and gain an understanding of your requirements you will spend all your time together out in nature on one or two stunning beaches practicing different movements and techniques, whilst learning how these movements and techniques combined with different camera settings can affect your final image.
A basic understanding of digital photography is required as well as having a camera that has shutter priority mode and a ND filter (6 stop) to allow us to shoot throughout the day. A tripod is optional.
Ultimately the day is yours to command, whether you have a particular image in mind you wish to capture, want to understand the concept of intentional camera movement (ICM photography) or are looking for inspiration in some beautiful places, or all three.
