I am an accomplished and experienced natural history photographer, and my images have featured in a wide variety of publications and books, including Time magazine, Encyclopedia Britannica, BBC Wildlife magazine etc.
My photography is represented by the Nature Picture Library under the name of Alan Watson. I use my photographs to illustrate my presentations and talks, and many of them feature in my blogs.
I can provide any of these pictures (and those in my blogs) as high resolution image files for reproduction purposes on request – please contact me for details.
I’ve posted slide shows of some of my photographs on my YouTube channel, and two of those are entitled A Celebration of Trees (which features photographs of trees and forests from all over the world) and A Sense of Wonder (which features images of the life and biodiversity of the Findhorn Hinterland area in NE Scotland).
The galleries below feature some examples of my photography, grouped by themes.
Rainbows – NEW! It was William Wordsworth who said “My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky:” Here are some rainbow photographs to lift everyone’s hearts.
Macro photographs – NEW! I have a fascination for the miniature world in Nature, and this gallery features some of the wonders that are revealed at a high magnification.
Mangroves – This gallery features photographs of mangroves, the tidal forests that occur on tropical coastlines, and some of the wildlife occurring in them.
Primates – This gallery features photographs of primates, some of our closest relatives in the animal world, from various different countries.
Image of the Week – Each week I post an image on the Home page that I’ve taken recently (or occasionally from my back catalogue). This is an archive of them all.
