Donald Ford Images: Scottish Landscape Photography

Scotland's legendary landscape, coastal magnificence and outstanding golfing venues abound with opportunities and surprises for the photographer. Donald Ford has established himself as one of Scotland's leading photographers, through his books, calendars and other publications which are distributed each year throughout the world. The website contains only a portion of the images which he has captured over some twenty years; these - and all the others in his portfolio - are available for purchase online from the gallery. The image shown on this page is **replace:linkedTextPhotoOfTheMonth**.

Range of Calendars for 2012

Donald's images for his 2012 calendar selections ( now in stock and available by ordering on the website ) once again strive to reflect many of the stunning atmospheric and visual characteristics from around Scotland and reproduce them in wall and desk format. In spite of several frustrating encounters with adverse weather in 2010, he still enjoyed a superb year with his camera and some truly exceptional images will find their way onto office walls around the world next year as a result. ( Sample pages from all four calendars may be viewed by clicking on the link below.) The continuing excellent feedback from customers at home and abroad indicates that the publications provide much pleasure, although the delight of capturing both landscape and golf course images has again ALL been his. The hope is that the 365 days during which his wonderful photographs of Scotland are simply a glance away - on walls or desks - will bring the ultimate satisfaction to both our corporate and private clients.

In July 2010 the Old Course at St. Andrews hosted the 139th Open Golf Championship, no less than one hundred and fifty years after the first one was held at Prestwick. To celebrate this remarkable milestone in British golf, Donald has visited and photographed all 14 courses which have hosted the tournament. His magnificent, A4-size new book contains more than one hundred of his superb images from the venues, accompanied by comprehensive editorials on the history of each and the tournaments hosted by them, the characters, incidents, adventures and, of course, leading final scores from every Championship. This wonderful publication on the greatest golf tournament in the world is not to be missed........

".....a beautifully achieved work...........a lavish, large-format tour of the Open courses" ( Simon Redfern, Independent on Sunday )
