Shona is a Scottish seascape and ICM Photographer and the founder of
My Beautiful Scotland.
Heavily influenced by contemporary art and abstract minimalism, Shona has spent the past few years developing her love for intentional camera movement (ICM photography).
It is through her passion for this technique that she was recognised and became a regular contributor for the globally recognised ICM Photography Magazine.
Whilst largely self-taught, Shona previously enrolled with the British Academy of Photography gaining a greater knowledge of the fundamentals and complexities of digital photography.
Technique is extremely important to Shona and whilst ICM photography demonstrates a certain freedom and creativity, Shona applies a considered, focussed and disciplined approach to her work ensuring the best results are achieved in camera.
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 recognisable style.
Shona established her Business, My Beautiful Scotland in 2018 which showcases her stunning portfolio, leaving you in no doubt as to why Scotland has been voted one of the most beautiful Countries in the world.
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.
