Hello, I’m Maria, a self-taught landscape and wildlife photographer living and working in Glasgow, Scotland.
I have a deep love for the diversity of Scotland’s various landscapes and our natural world.
For me, it’s very important to keep my photographs natural, as seen with the naked eye, and is why I tend to keep post-processing to a minimum (removing dust spots and crop the image – if required – to a format I think suits the image).
Over the years some of my photographs have been published in a number of mazagrans, newspapers, books, websites, calendars, greeting cards and blogs etc (with written copyright agreement).
My interest of photography started at an early age (borrowing my Father’s camera) and deepened when my parents gave me my own camera as a young teenager; when I started out taking photographs of my family, relatives, wildlife, clouds and the beautiful nature where I stayed; over the years my love for photography has grown into more than just a hobby.
Photography makes me happy, and being outdoors to explore Scotland in its ever-changing landscape (and weather), to be behind the camera is a precious bonus.

Thank you for taking time looking through my portfolio.
