The photographer I admire the most

Colin Prior – Landscape Photographer


Colin Prior is a well-respected Landscape Photographer who comes from Glasgow, Scotland. As a renowned photographer he is almost the founding father of landscape photography in Scotland.

I first came across his work many years ago seeing his panoramic calendars and books covering his photography. He has inspired me in my life with his photography, like Colin, I love the outdoors and now this fits well with my photography, last September I had 5 days wild camping in Assynt, Sutherland, Northwest Scotland, this is an area that Colin has visited many times and for me it was good to see the landscape he has photographed in the past, after my 5 days I created my own book as an account of my trip.


More recently he has completed an expedition lasting over a course of seven years and five expeditions concluding with the publication of "The Karokoram - Ice Mountains of Pakistan". They are the second highest mountain range in the world, home to four peaks over 8,000m including K2.

A shooting location I won't forget

What is your best shooting location?

Besides light conditions and the timing of pushing the shutter button, the location is the most decisive factor for a successful shot. Sometimes, finding a good location takes a lot of effort - sometimes, photographers encounter the location by occasion.

Here we would like to share some stories from Tokina lens shooters about their best suggested shooting locations.
