A few of you have enquired, in the past, about Tom’s photographs, and the possibility of having them printed.
I’m pleased to say that Tom has now set up an online gallery where you can view and purchase high-quality prints of many of the images he’s taken.
In the gallery you’ll find several of the fantastic photos that Tom shot for our Shetland Oo book…
. . .as well as a selection of images from around our locale.
. . and elsewhere in Scotland.
Tom’s new photographic identity is Ootlier. This is a Shetland dialect word for those hardy animals – such as Shetland sheep – who, rather than being cared for in a barn over winter, spend those months outdoors. It’s a word I first came across in the poetry of Stella Sutherland, and one that appeals to Tom as both a hardy outdoor animal himself and someone with a background in scientific data (for whom outlier has a different kind of resonance). Here’s the logo Tom’s designed.
If you have a special request for an image that you’ve seen here on this blog but which is not visible in the gallery please get in touch with us and Tom can see if the image is available for you.
We hope you enjoy browsing the Ootlier gallery!
