About Robert Fulton
I was a late starter into photography some 18 years ago.
I quickly caught the photographic bug & since then my enthusiasm for photography has grown. I enjoy entering into club competitions as well as National & International Exhibitions, run mainly for amateur photographic enthusiasts.
I consider myself to be a serious amateur with my main interest being Landscapes. Probably what I am known best for is the capture of scenes at first light when transient weather conditions prevail.
One of my favorite areas that I visit frequently during Autumn & Winter is the Trossachs National Park. This area is about a 90 mins drive away from where I live.
I review the weather forecast closely and then leave my home during darkness so that I can be on site for early morning light. If this is unsuccessful I tend to use the time to note possible future locations, and often it’s nice just to be in such a beautiful place at such a special time of the day, whether you get any images or not.
I have a theory that if you have a particular empathy with your subject then it shows in your work, and this applies whatever genre of photography you are involved in.
As well as being a member of Paisley Colour Camera Club, I am also on the executive committee of the Scottish Photographic Federation, where my role is FIAP Liaison Officer.
This involves me appealing for images from Scottish club members and entering them in organized exhibitions against other nations. I am delighted to say that in recent years Scotland won two World Cups in Vietnam and Ireland respectively, and a Silver Medal in Indonesia. I think this is indicative of not only the healthy state of Scottish photography but also the U.K. as a whole.
