Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland has long been home to a wealth of artistic talent, inspired by this area of outstanding natural beauty.  Among the artists who live and work here are seven professional photographers who comprise the Galloway Photographic Collective.  They have joined forces to promote their work, across a range of disciplines including traditional landscape photography of Scotland, wedding and portrait photography, editorial, wildlife, and staged narrative, fantasy photography.
The Collective currently comprises of eight members. To the eastern shore of Loch Ken is Allan Wright; in central Castle Douglas you can find Kim Ayres; Roger Lever is in Dalbeattie; Laura Hudson Mackay is based in New Abbey; Tom Langlands is out East in Annan; while Holly Burns and David Moses are to the West in Newton Stewart, and Jesse Beaman, night sky photographer, is also over to the west, near  Newton Stewart, on the edge of Galloway Forest Park.
They provide a variety of exhibitions, open studio days, workshops, talks and events throughout the year. For more information, visit http://www.gallowayphotocollective.co.uk

Members of the collective visited Morocco in the fall of 2016, and took some of their precious time while in the country to work with Moroccan youth. Following are photographs taken during that time.
