Since we started our business we’ve been very fortunate to utilize the services of some superb photographers. Our first choice for photos of the local area is usually Stewart Smith Photography as Stewart can always come up with just the right photo for whatever occasion we need.
Stewarts imagery focuses on the wild, rugged, mountainous side of the English Lake District and Scottish Highlands. It is principally concerned with catching the fleeting and dramatic light that can play across the crags and ridges of the mountains at the extreme ends of the day; light that is capable of transforming an already enthralling scene into something remarkable with an almost surreal beauty. Stewart achieves these shots by spending many a night camping out on the fells to ensure he’s in the best position for both last light and breaking dawn.The interpretation is of an almost primal landscape devoid of human intrusion, the Lake District mountains as they have been for thousands of years and will continue to be for thousands more.
The photos represent a love of the solitude and quiet contentment that can still be found in the higher reaches of one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, revealing the Lake District at it’s very best.
Stewarts photos adorn the walls of some of our cottages in Elterwater and can be bought from our office or from his website. Stewarts website has loads of superb photography and an informal blog where you can find out about projects he’s working on, photography workshops he’s involved with and a one stop shop to order any prints which catch your eye .
