Our ‘Officially supported by Kase’ section consists of photographers and photographic organisations that we work with and support on an ongoing basis. These individuals and organisations all have Kase Products that they will use in many ways. This can be for photographic workshops, educational purposes, demonstrations, or to enable them to create the content that they need professionally. We are always keen to help the photographic community where we can, and proud to provide support to those involved.

Jim is a landscape photographer and fully qualified drone pilot, based right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons national park.
“Before becoming a professional photographer, I packed up my suitcase and headed off to the French Alps for 3 years. I ran ski and mountain bike chalets throughout the summer and winter months. It was one of the best experiences of my life and made me appreciate the seasons and landscapes around us.
I have recently moved to the beautiful Brecon Beacons national park to reconnect and draw inspiration from the beautiful surroundings.
I feel compelled to capture the beauty that is all around us whether in the warm golden light or the quiet dead of night surrounded by a trillion stars. I aim to capture emotion and meaning both in the wild corners of our island and in the heart of our bustling cities, my aim is not only to satisfy my clients but to share something remarkable in our day to day life.”
Gareth is a You-tuber and Professional photographer from the gorgeous South Wales, UK.
“I adore being out and about exploring new surroundings! South Wales has so much to explore i am spoilt for choice!
Professionally I’m a commercial, wedding and event photographer and graphic designer. However my passion is travel and landscape photography.
For the past 18 years I’ve provided a multimedia service for high end commercial clients event organisers and family portraiture all over the UK and Europe.
That said, there’s nothing i enjoy more than the freedom of being out exploring with my camera and my little dog Callie. I’ve recently developed a keen interest in wild camping too which i’m sure will offer a whole new list of landscape photography opportunities.”
We love his attitude to all things photography, and love working with him to help him do what he loves.

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”

Dave is a North East England based photographer specialising in both Landscape and Seascape work.
“I bought My first DSLR in early 2010 and it didn’t take long for me to find that I had a passion for Landscape and Seascape Photography. Just getting out and about with My camera and capturing the beautiful scenes that nature presents to Me makes Me feel alive and exhilarates Me. Being based in The North East of England gives Me access to some of the most wonderful and dramatic coastlines in the UK but I love to travel, especially to Scotland to try and capture the stunning scenery and places that I visit.”
Sarah has two passions; photography and travel.
Her interest in photography was initiated by her father, himself an accomplished amateur photographer, and developed further through time spent traveling overseas. Inspired, and subsequently mentored, by the renowned UK landscape photographer Charlie Waite, she was encouraged to develop her photography further and to him owes much gratitude for helping her find her path in life.
In 2010, wishing to pass her knowledge on to others Sarah set up ‘Image Seen’ which now offers a variety of landscape photography workshops throughout the UK and Europe, as well as tailored one to one tuition.
Sarah is a keen speaker to photographic societies and also contributes regularly to the photographic press. At present, she is currently working on her second book; ‘Photographing the Cotswolds’; part of the FotoVUE guidebook series.
As a creative tool the camera has allowed me to express my love of the landscape. Photography has certainly changed my life in the sense that it’s opened my eyes and allowed me to truly ‘see’ the beauty of what is around me. Through it, I have found my vision has become more fine-tuned and I now look at my surroundings completely differently. As such, with a greater appreciation of the landscape I feel I have also developed a greater connection.
Daniel is an award winning landscape photographer based in Dorset with over 10 years experience.
He can be found exploring all over the UK, but mainly in his home county of Dorset where he spends his time chasing light. Daniel’s love of the great outdoors led to his interest in landscape photography and the way light falls across the landscape. It was this that started a near obsession with being able to record not only the iconic locations but also exploring less well known areas and building up one of the most comprehensive portfolios of Dorset images available.
Daniel is also known for his landscape photography blog as well as writing for several photography magazines. Daniel’s light chasing requires a no compromise approach which is why he only uses Kase Filters for all his images to assure the absolute highest image quality available to capture with confidence.
I am a full time landscape photographer based in High Peak, Derbyshire. I have always been passionate about the great outdoors, and after spending over 25-years racing mountain bikes, an injury made me look for something else. That is when I found photography.
I am a self-taught photographer and I have covered most things from commercial to wedding photography, but my love has always been landscape and weather. I now run storm chasing photography tours in the USA as well as landscape photography workshops closer to home in the UK.
My images are used commercially around the world, with many books and magazines featuring my work on front covers. I also supply the national press with storm and landscape images.
Although this is not my main priority, over time I have entered national and international photography competitions, with some success.
I have been published in the Landscape Photography of the Year award books 7 times, including winning the Classic View category in 2018. I have also won awards in the International Landscape Photographer of the Year and the Sienna International Photo Awards.

Casting my mind back to the very beginning, my photography journey started in 1977 with a junior school trip to a Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserve, which had a visitor centre with a grass covered roof. Grass roofs were unheard of back then! As youngster, I was in awe that such a thing could exist for such a reason and my love of nature was set in stone from that point on. Wind the clock forward 10 years and I was given my first camera at seventeen, a Praktica MTL 3 where I began my journey in nature photography. Eventually finding my way to Canon and my photography feet, I began to write photo text packages for magazines, including BBC Wildlife, Photography Monthly, Practical Photography and Outdoor Photography along with producing stock images to the then and NHPA, Alamy and Science Photo library who I still supply to this day.

I am a keen landscape photographer now based in Wiltshire after recently moving back from Bude. Living down in Cornwall is what really ignited my passion for everything landscape, I love the challenge of capturing a seascape image and thought that was as tough as it gets…until I came back here in the Wiltshire countryside and the wonderful woodlands that surround me. There’s just something about a sunrise in the woods that i find so addictive and trying to capture those moments on camera can be so rewarding. Since being with Kase, doing my Youtube channel and organising my workshops i have found what i was meant to do and relish being busy with my camera.

He can usually be found capturing the vast surrounding landscapes, sprawling cityscapes and the people who inhabit those spaces in our world.

”Photography is an important part of my head space…..it is about discovery, life’s living flow, seeing how a heart feels in a fleeting moment, it is to be on a street, in a landscape….about a time, experiencing, understanding, learning, freedom of being, of living, of thinking….” – Scott Read.

I am a self taught photographer and have been photographing landscapes for over twenty years.
I’m a proud Cornishman who loves nothing better than photographing around the South west of the UK and especially my native county of Cornwall. Nowadays I primarily photograph in the square format aspect ratio which I have fallen in love with in recent years.
I have been a brand ambassador for Sigma-Imaging UK for many years exclusively capturing images with Sigma cameras which incorporate the unique Foveon sensor technology which produces a digital file reminiscent to film. I am also an FLM buddy for the high quality German tripod manufacturer FLM.
I have had my work published in many of the leading photographic magazines and Sigma lens and camera brochures over many years. I held my first solo landscape photography exhibition called Foveon landscapes in January 2020 where I showed 35 of my prints which were printed by myself and Kindly sponsored by Canson Infinity Fine Art papers.
I also run my own small group workshops and 1-2-1 tuition from time to time specialising in the South West of the UK and the Cornish landscape in particular.
