Allan Bell Photography

Wildlife - Nature - Landscape

About Me

Recently retired from a career in the offshore industry and now looking forward to advancing my photography knowledge and expertise while developing and learning new skills. My goal is to work as a freelance professional photographer offering bespoke wildlife workshops / tuition to beginner and advanced amateur enthusiasts.

My Work

Based in the Scottish Borders with a keen interest in wildlife photography. My passion has always been to enjoy the Scottish landscape while capturing natural images of birds of prey and the various mammals, amphibians and insects that inhabit our glorious moorlands, marshes, lochs and river banks.
