9 December 2017 It's the Christmas countdown with the last 2 sales events coming up over the next 2 weeks at Mareel in Lerwick. I still have a limited supply of my luxury A3 2018 Calendars and a range of Christmas cards. After I sold out of my new range of ceramic mugs with images of animals I now have a further small number but please be quick if you want one. At these events I shall also have a special selection of mounted prints and a couple of large canvases to choose from. Final dates for 2017 are:

- 10 December - Mareel 11AM - 6PM
- 17 December - Mareel 11AM - 6PM

31 October 2017 I have updated the Events and People page with galleries from 3 of the weddings I photographed this year. If you're tying the knot in 2018 and would like to discuss your wedding photography with me please get in touch.

15 June 2017
Nearly all of my photo workshops for 2017 are now fully booked, though there remain a few spaces on my half-day workshops during Wool Week where you can learn how to get the best out of your photography for social media - see here for details and to book:

8 March 2017 New! Book online to attend my Improve your Photography workshop on 31 March/ 1 April here:

20 November 2016 Well that's the Annual Clickimin Craft Fair now over for another year and we're now rushing headlong towards Christmas! Still a few sales events left at various locations and I have sold out of some seasonal Austin Taylor Photography products already but will have my 2017 Calendars and some 2016 Christmas Cards at these markets until they sell out too. They are also still available to buy online on my Merchandise Page.

8 September 2016 The last of the summer Mareel Pop-Up Markets is in September and the first few Christmas shopping opportunities are now listed opposite too. Come along - I'll be delighted to meet you and discuss your photographic needs. It's been a busy summer with weddings, various commissions and some workshops. I shall be running my final planned photography workshops in conjuction with Wool Week. The Perfect Picture is a half-day workshop aimed at helping you get better pictures of your creations for uploading to your social media. See opposite for details and booking.

22 March 2016 More good news! I just found out that my Aurora Wadbister photo has been judged the best of all the entries to the Highland Challenge annual inter-club photographic competition between nine camera clubs across the north of Scotland. More details and my initial reaction in the Shetland Times report here. Technical details - Stitched panorama of 11 images, each shot at 13s F/2.8 ISO 1250. Nikon D750, Nikkor 14mm F/2.8

26 December 2015 I feel a bit like a celebrity today because I found a North American Mourning Dove in my garden! This is the first record for Shetland and only the 5th record for Britain - it's what's known to birders as a "Mega"! I took the photo above on 27th December.

12 October 2015 I can now accept payment by card at most locations (so long as an internet connection is available) so do take advantage of that.

28 September 2015 A Total Lunar Eclipse occurred early this morning (BST) but, unfortunately, most of the show was obscured in Shetland due to cloud. I did manage to get a few photos, just before and just after the start of totality about 0300 but that was it. See my blog here

16 August 2015 Aurora season is here! I usually see my first Northern Lghts in August, often around the time when astronomical darkness returns and, sure enough, last night I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't a very strong display but the colours were very nice and I managed to create this panorama just before dawn at Wadbister. See a larger version of this photo and read more about what else I saw including the wildlife I encountered last night over on my blog.

15 August 2015 New Improve Your Photography Workshop date added for September. Check it out and book early!

28 July 2015 Exciting news from the Icelandic Orca Project! They have used my photo to confirm the presence of the Killer Whale known as"012" in the Shetland catalogue and "T-38" in the Icelandic catalogue off St Kilda on 1 July at the end of our two week visit there. This is the oldest whale the Project team know to move between Iceland and Scotland but she was last seen in Iceland in 2013, first identified in 1987! Thanks to them for the news but especially to Kilda Cruises who helped to make the encounter so unforgettable.

23 July 2015 I'm happy to say that I have resolved the problem that caused most of my galleries to be blocked and there remains just the odd isolated glitch here and there that I'm working on. Thank you for your patience!

6 July 2015 I have now returned from my trip to St Kilda   and service is now back to normal - apologies for any delay and inconvenience as I catch up with outstanding tasks. I hope to be able to share more of my images very soon.

21 April 2015 Kicking off this year's shopping events on Sunday 26 April at Cunningsburgh Hall with a surprise giveaway with every purchase of 15 or over! While stocks last only.

15 April 2015
Shopping events for the spring and summer are now available to view opposite. I shall be attending a range of events from west, to north and south - come and visit to browse my stall and talk photography!

20 March 2015
Solar Eclipse! I viewed it from Gulberwick. The eclipse here resulted in about 97% of the surface of the Sun being obscured by the Moon, which was a fantastic sight. Unfortunately the weather was somewhat challenging and cloud hid some parts of the show. However, and luckily, the mid eclipse was mostly visible, allowing the above photo just a minute or two past actual maximum eclipse. I have posted a timelapse of the event on my Vimeo channel

20 March 2015
Solar Eclipse! I shall attempt to view and photograph this wonderful spectacle somewhere in Shetland - here's hoping for clear skies. The image above gives a rough indication of what it will look like here in Shetland with the Sun about 98% obscured by the Moon at about 9.43 AM. If you want to see it totally obscured you'll need to be a couple of humdred miles north of Shetland - the only land that will witness a total eclipse will be in Faeroe andf Svalbard.

9 February 2015 My Improve your Photography workshop dates for 2015 are listed opposite. If you would like to attend or would like further details do please contact me. Also I am available for bespoke sessions if you wish to attand oin another date or wish to work on a particular aspect of your photography.
