Lee Mott
Over 36 years field experience

16th successful year of Workshops


Growing up in Derbyshire, I became fascinated by the natural world at a very young age. A desire to visually record my observations led me down the path of visual arts, firstly in the form of sketching and painting.

Eventually photography became a tool, to back up sketches made out in the field. By the time I had reached my teens Photography won out to become my passion in life.

A lifetime studying animal behaviour, natural habitats and field locations gave me a firm grounding in nature photography.


Turning professional in 1989, I specialised in producing limited edition fine art prints for sale in galleries across the UK.

My business has changed significantly since then. I now specialise in nature and travel photography with my business Images in Nature www.imagesinnature.co.uk

I first set up the photography holidays and workshops in the year 2000,

after being approached by several photographers wanting to explore the world of nature photography.

I started out offering one day session, and soon developed week long holidays and workshops in various parts of the UK and abroad.

My wife and I moved from Derbyshire in 2006 to live in Shetland, an archipelago off the north coast of Scotland.

I also run Shetland Photography Holidays www.shetlandphotographyholidays.co.uk

My photography tours are now global,

and I travel extensively alone and with clients.
