From photography to art, nature to our tumultuous history, we want to show you it all!

Paul Tomkins

Paul is a professional travel photographer and tour guide. He started his career working for the UK Military on top-secret projects before moving on to assist many leading photographers - including royalty!


He worked for nearly 30 years as the Principal Photographer for VisitScotland (the National Tourist Board), traveling the length and breadth of the country, producing images for their award winning advertising and print campaigns.


He spent much of his earlier life in Edinburgh and for the past 20 years has been based in Inverness, where he lives in a 145 year old converted hospital. Widely travelled and interested in many subjects, when not behind a camera, telling tales or exploring the country with visitors, he likes to kayak over waterfalls and through remote rock gorges, downhill ski and is still trying to make the perfect cappuccino.  He also loves haggis, porridge and single malt whisky and is a fan of performance poet John Cooper Clarke and our National Bard, Robert Burns.
