About Niall. Born in eastern Scotland in 1964, I've worked in environmental communications since 1993 as a photographer, designer and writer. I have thousands of image publication credits and have published over half a million words (including 6 books). Outdoor Photography magazine (UK) have claimed that I am one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world but I can't verify that. Along with my wife, Charlotte, I am a director of Food and Photography Retreats Ltd.
