Geoff Allan takes immense pride in the photographic component of his work, providing every image showcased in his two publications. Inspired by the ground-breaking pioneers of Scottish landscape photography: Colin Prior and Colin Baxter, he has spent countless hours attempting to capture the fleeting moments of startling light and colour with which Scotland and Ireland are blessed.
Taking high quality bothy portraits became his primary focus as Geoff began compiling photos for his first publication, The Scottish Bothy Bible. For a long time no photograph seemed complete without one of his unique mountain shelters in the frame! In his second book, Scottish Bothy Walks, he made a point of delivering all new photography, including many more landscape shots to illustrate the walks themselves.
