Peter Ribbeck is a multiple national award winning Landscape Photographer from Ayrshire on the West Coast of Scotland.
I picked up my first DSLR in 2006 which was an 8 megapixel Olympus E500 – This was the beginning of a passion for photography which is still as strong today! I was a self taught amateur photographer with no academic training at all. Most of my skills were honed by trial and error, reading photography magazines and many hours down at my favourite haunt of Portencross.
Thanks to photography I have witnessed some of the most amazing lightshows and events produced by nature which I would definitely never have see if it wasn’t for photography….I am grateful for that.
Landscape photography to me is to have the drive to push yourself beyond reasoning just to be there for that moment of magic.
My shots have been commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition 2008-2009- 2010- 2011- 2012- 2013- and 2017 with this year having my image as the front cover shot of the awards book . My photos have been exhibited at the National Theatre in London and have been published in the Sunday Times magazine – Peter Ribbeck
