Ian Middleton - Professional Travel and Landscape Photographer based in the UK

About Ian Middleton

I am a British photographer, writer, web designer and SEO consultant.

How I got into photography

I got into photography after a four-month journey around Mexico filled me with the desire to capture the wonderful life and scenery that had filled my eyes and fueled my imagination. Unfortunately, back then all I had was a very old compact camera with a severely scratched lens, therefore the images I took really weren’t very good. However, I saw the potential in what was there and therefore decided to invest in my first SLR and start to learn how to take better photos. 

How I got into travel and landscape photography

In the years that followed, I learned my craft while travelling and focused mainly on travel photography. But when I met my wife, who is from Slovenia, and started travelling in her country, then I started focusing more on landscape photography.

My photography and writing has been published in Mysterious World: Ireland, Lonely Planet, Living Abroad, Bradt Travel Guides, the Guardian and Landscape Photography Magazine, among others.
