James Smith

Welcome to my website

I live on the coast of the Solway Firth in Cumbria, having moved from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides to the Solway Coast in 2011.

I became a professional landscape photographer in 1991. This was following several very successful exhibitions of my work, mainly in Scotland. I moved with my wife Janet, from Yorkshire to the Outer Hebrides in 1991. At this time we established the Oiseval Photographic Gallery in the village of Brue on the wild Atlantic coast of the island.

I spend much of my time presently working in Cumbria especially along the Solway Coast and in Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders.

My latest work covers the South Rhins of Galloway, a lovely area that I will be visiting many times in the future.

All the images on this website are available for purchase, I also have many more images available in my collections.

My commercial clients have included Scottish Natural Heritage, Historic Scotland, Cumbria County Council, Solway Wetlands Partnership, Solway AONB, BBC and ITV and various magazine publishers.
