Zoe Walton – Hebrides
Zoe came on the Outer Hebrides photography workshop in 2019
Zoe loves just wandering on beaches and is happy “pottering” as she says. The way she just loves every moment and appreciates every environment, whether that is a beautiful dawn or a windswept storm is something a lot of us could learn from. She is the embodiment of gratefulness for life and living in the moment. Zoe appeared to be content to be and to walk and to sit and watch as opposed to take many images during our trip to Lewis.
I'd often saw her sitting for an hour absorbing and watching the waves roll in and out. We encouraged her and showed her little things, but mostly she was content to be and create her own images in her own time. So when I asked everyone to bring me their images, I was absolutely bowled over to see what Zoe had actually been quietly doing that week. Her eye for detail, pattern, texture in close up views of nature is very marked. I literally had no idea that she was all the while capturing images in such a unique way.
Zoe is a lady who has an understated talent with a charming humbleness to match. Zoe- I loved seeing your set of images and the way you captured such interesting styles and patterns within nature. The Hebrides from a completely new angle.
