About David Gifford
This website is a home for my photoblog. I’m from the Shetland Islands, north of mainland Scotland, and specialise in photographing Shetland: I love to photograph Shetland’s dramatic land and seascapes, the diverse and often unique wildlife, the spectacular ‘mirrie dancers’ (aurora borealis), and events such as the iconic scenes at the Up Helly Aa festivals.
I studied Law and Politics at Edinburgh University, graduating with MA(Hons), LLb, DipLP. Back living in Shetland, I’ve turned my attention to the creative and business professions. I’m a Web Developer at NB Communication, Shetland’s digital marketing specialists, where I work on web-related projects for a wide range of clients.
I regularly sell images for publication and digital use on request - for licensing please contact me.
