Alister Benn


Alister Benn is a Scottish landscape photographer, writer, and musician living in the far west of Scotland with his wife Ann Kristin. Together they run Expressive Photography, which is focused on online learning and small workshops.

Alister’s approach to the landscape is on an emotional level, where each line, texture, color, or atmospheric element has an emotional counterpoint in the viewer. For Alister, landscape photography is an experiential art form, layered with perspective and the urge to articulate something of that wonder through skillful presentation.

Over the years he has been awarded first prizes in some of the world’s most renowned competitions including the Memorial Maria Luisa and Px3 (Paris Photography Prize).
