Peter Cairns

Based in the heart of Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park, Peter has been using his words and images to inspire and inform a wide audience for over 15 years. During that time he has racked up numerous awards, authored six books and along with partners and colleagues, has initiated conservation media projects such as Tooth & Claw, Highland Tiger, Wild Wonders of Europe and 2020VISION.

Peter is a director of The Wild Media Foundation, the Social Enterprise behind his latest project, SCOTLAND: The Big Picture. An advocate for rewilding, Peter is a serving Board Member of award-winning charity Trees for Life and is a Senior Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers.

Way back in the dark ages, Peter helped pioneer Scotland’s wildlife tourism sector and for almost two decades has been planning and guiding photo-tours for Northshots Photo Adventures, Scotland’s longest established provider of photographic tours and experiences.

In recent years, along with a small, dedicated team, Peter has diversified into film-making, public speaking and visual communications consultancy. He continues to insist on Status Quo being the greatest rock band ever and rarely misses an episode of Coronation Street.
