Nadir Khan – Extreme Scotland - BOOK LAUNCH
In Extreme Scotland, Nadir takes us on a jaw-dropping tour through Scotland’s epic mountain landscape.
Extreme Scotland is a photographic journey through Scottish adventure sports through the lens of Nadir Khan. Scotland is one of the most diverse extreme sports locations in the world and packs a punch well above its weight. For the past 6 years Nadir has been photographing some of the best athletes in the world that test their mettle against the walls, rivers and skylines of this beautiful country. The resulting book shows the beautiful, the brutal, the immense and the majestic landscapes that form the backdrop for stunning collection of images.

Nadir talks about the motivation behind the book, the practicalities of photographing in the sometimes extreme conditions of Scotland, and about the emotional ups and downs of working on such a big project over the past 6 years. This presentation is a feast for those that love adventure, for those that love photography and for those wish to understand what it takes to get great images in the outdoors.

He showcases his work with some of the best adventure athletes in the world – including Ines Papert and James Pearson – in a portfolio that has placed him at the forefront of adventure-sports photography in the UK.

From the icy walls of Ben Nevis’s frozen north face to the raging seas of the north coast, Scotland plays host to world-class adventure sports of every discipline. Ice climbing, kayaking, ski-touring, trail running, surfing, mountain biking and rock climbing are all captured beautifully in this fitting testament to Scotland’s outstanding landscapes and adrenaline sports.

Alongside contributions from climber and author Nick Bullock, Tom Livingstone, Elana Bader, Mike Pescod, David Canning and Stuart B. Campbell, Nadir gives us an insight into his photographic inspirations, and shares insights and approaches to composition and other elements of his photography.

‘This book is an insight into what makes Nadir Khan the extreme photographer he is, and an insight into his subjects that he follows through tears and pain. For me it is the mark of a man on top of his game in the beautiful and hostile environment of Scotland.’ Brett Harkness, award-winning fashion and lifestyle photographer
