“The thrill of photography for me is portraying to the viewer what I admire and capturing through my creativity and sharing this.”
Stephen Ball, LRPS is an established award winning Scottish landscape photographer.
He was was born and raised in south east of London. As a youth, he developed an interest in lighting design and in 1996 graduated with an HND to work in the British theatre industry. He worked for many years as both designer and technician in London's West End, working on many of the musical productions.
At the age of 22, Stephen moved to Edinburgh and although has since changed careers, this experience of design and creativity has assisted him to develop his skills as a photographer.
Stephen can remember always having an interest in photography as a child and visited fantastic locations like Yosemite National Park in the US. However, this was before digital photography came about. Now its much more affordable to take and process 100's of photographs!.
Landscape photography is Stephen's passion and he is very fortunate to live in a country which offers fantastic views to photograph, from the city of Edinburgh all the way up to the Scottish Highlands and beyond to the islands. He also enjoys portrait photography too, capturing lasting memories for loved ones and friends.
In 2013, Stephen received his accreditation with the Royal Photographic Society in recognition for the high standard of his photography.
In 2018, he was awarded with a commendation for a photograph he took of Rannoch Moor in the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.
Stephen's work can be frequently seen in a variety of photographic magazines both in the UK and abroad. He also provides individually tailored photography workshops and gives lectures to photography groups.
More photographs are added to the gallery all the time and you can also follow Stephen on Facebook to stay up to date with news of forthcoming exhibitions, talks and other events.
