Situated in Falkirk, Scotland, the Kelpies are colossal horse-head sculptures that stand as a testament to the country's rich folklore and industrial heritage. These equine marvels, crafted by sculptor Andy Scott, have become an iconic symbol of Scotland, drawing visitors from around the globe. As an Edinburgh photographer, I visit this wonderful location on a regular basis.
It is important to keep a keen eye and artistic prowess, when you are trying to push the boundaries of conventional photography. Specialising in event and conference photography in Scotland, I try to master the art of storytelling through his lens. My recent foray into infrared photography adds a new dimension to this genre.

Infrared Photography Unveiled:
Infrared photography involves capturing light beyond the visible spectrum, rendering ethereal and surreal results. This unique technique has the power to transform ordinary landscapes into otherworldly scenes, and the Kelpies provided me with the perfect canvas for his artistic exploration.
My Journey at the Kelpies:
Venturing into the heart of Scotland, Colin embarked on a mission to immortalise the Kelpies in a way that transcended traditional photography. Armed with my infrared camera, I navigated the picturesque surroundings, unveiling a hidden world not visible to the naked eye.
The Mystique of Infrared in the Kelpies:
My world of infrared images of the Kelpies reveal a mystical aura that enhances the already enchanting sculptures. The grassy landscapes take on an otherworldly glow, and the reflections in the water become dreamlike. The contrast between the dark metal of the Kelpies and the radiant foliage creates a captivating visual scene.
Challenges and Rewards:
Infrared photography comes with its own set of challenges, from selecting the right light to using the best infrared filter. The rewards, however, are evident in the breathtaking images that showcase the Kelpies in a whole new light.
My venture into infrared photography at the Kelpies exemplifies the marriage of technical expertise and artistic vision. Through my lens, I invite you to see familiar landmarks in an entirely new way, unveiling the hidden magic that lies beyond the visible spectrum. As a professional event and conference photographer in Scotland, I love the distraction of doing something totally different with infrared.
