‘Our hearts are in the highlands’

Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, the hills of the Highlands forever I love…

~ Robert Burns

Kristy Ashton

Hi I’m Kristy!

I grew up with a love of nature on a farm in rural Western Australia. From an early age I had an appreciation of the outdoors.. it is my sanctuary and my primary source of inspiration. Being outside helps me breathe, being close to nature helps me think. That is what is really important.

After travelling around the world I settled in Scotland and picked up a camera to explore the drama and romance of this wild landscape. It took my breath away and I began to look at the world differently. The freedom of expression gave me a high and Photography has given my life new meaning.

I want to paint my own picture to express how I feel. I am passionate about creating images that inspire and connect you to the landscape that evoke emotion.

I am an Auld Romantic.. and I would love to share the story with you.


Richard Jackson

Hi I’m Richard!

The Highlands have always been a place of inspiration for me and I have been fortunate to live in Scotland for over 20 years.

A proud Yorkshireman, I was born in Leeds and grew up in the Military. I thrived in the mountains.. it is my element and here I can breathe. I met Kristy in Glencoe and found my soulmate. The mountains saved us became our spiritual and creative home.

Together we chase the light, share the same appreciation of nature and see the same stories in the landscape.. sometimes I even know what ‘Whimsical’ actually means! I love to see the emotion.. the reaction of our clients as they experience, for themselves the real romance and beauty of the Scottish landscape... to be part of the drama and see exactly why we love and appreciate what we do.

It is a privilege to be able to ‘hang out with friends’ in this place that we have so much to be thankful for... and now call home.
