Gordon Siegel

Photographer

Gordon is a semi professional photographer from the Shetland Islands. Being immersed socially in island life, he has captured sporting images and traditional festivals, at the same time capturing the land and rugged coastline he has explored growing up on an island so richly steeped in culture and history. He hopes his knowledge of the Shetland landscape shows in his beautifully framed and printed exhibition work and that the influences of remote Island life along with Scottish and Norse heritage resonate in his striking images.

Gordon’s photography has been acknowledged with many award winning images from his 2019 Highly Commended Portfolio in the overall title round of the Scottish Landscape Photographer of The Year to his most recent success at the 2020 British Photography Awards, being short listed in the event category with his image from Up Helly Aa (Europes largest fire festival) taking home to Shetland the Peoples Choice Award, an achievement he is very proud of.
