Simon Riddell

I specialise in analogue and alternative forms of photography, this is my passion.  Currently, I'm immersed in practicing the art of Victorian Wetplate Photography, invented in the 1850's the process is still to be rivalled today.  There are only one thousand people worldwide shooting Wetplate.

I became an artist in 2016, travelling through various analogue and darkroom disciplines.  In 2021 I won a global wedding award for my natural portraiture.  I also worked closely with Channel 4 on the set of SAS: Who Dares Wins. 


I have a bespoke studio and darkroom located at the top of the picturesque Nigg Hill, Ross-Shire, in the Scottish Highlands.  The rest of my time is spent in the Isle of Skye.


My work has been well published over the years, and you can read more here.
