Today I was doing installation photography of Gill Russell’s exhibition South West by South, An t-Eilean Fada, The Long Island: A Poetic Cartography in An Lanntair’s main gallery.

This excellent show, exploring the dynamic relationship between the sea and land, and revealing the nautical heritage of the Outer Hebrides, runs until Sunday 4th July, so only a few days left to catch it!

Sandwick Bay Candles

By John MacLean, 11/12/2020


Last week I was photographing Megan MacDonald, owner of Sandwick Bay Candles in Stornoway, where Megan and her team were very busy fulfilling Christmas orders.

An excellent example of a business selling locally and also sending their products all over the world, Sandwick Bay Candles provides much-needed employment during difficult economic times in the islands. Set up in 2016, the business continues to grow its customer base by offering a range of quality products including luxury hampers, reed diffusers and lotions. Good luck for the future!



I am available for carrying out high quality photographic work through the Outer Hebrides, across a wide range of subjects including PR, media and promotional work, portraiture, property photography and high-resolution imaging of original artwork and gallery installations. Please contact me for further details or to book my services.
