Landscape and Seascape Photography

Ian Middleton Photography

Hi there, welcome to my site. It’s a fun, eco-friendly site made entirely from recycled computers. I am a travel writer and photographer from the UK. On this website you can see galleries of my landscape and seascape photography.

My photography was born from my desire to travel to exotic countries. A four-month journey around Mexico then filled me with the desire to capture the wonderful life and scenery that had filled my eyes and fuelled my imagination. Unfortunately back then all I had was a very old compact camera with a severely scratched lens, so the images I took really weren’t very good. But I saw the potential in what was there and, upon return, decided to invest in my first SLR and start to learn how to take better photos. The rest, as they say, is history.

My photography has been published in Mysterious World: Ireland, Lonely Planet, Living Abroad, Bradt Travel Guides and the Guardian newspaper. I also run regular photography workshops in Slovenia and the UK.

In 2014 I was very pleased to have received the runner up award in the travel category of the Professional Photographer of the Year (PPOTY).

These days I mainly use a Canon EOS 5Dmk3 with two L series lenses, but also shoot a mixture of digital and 35mm film format. You can order high quality prints, framed or unframed, Canvas prints, matted prints, mounted prints, greeting cards and much more. Visit the gallery for more photos, and visit the prints page for more info on products available.

The beautiful Jurassic Coast


Portland Bill lighthouse is just one of many stunning views to be found along the English coast. It lies on the stunning Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Saint Thomas Church


This classic view from Rantovše hill across to Sveti Tomaz nad Praprotnim (church of Saint Thomas) with the Kamnik Alps behind in the Skofja Loka hills, is just one of many stunning views to be found in Slovenia.
