David Rippin is primarily a landscape photographer. His work has been recognised through being placed in, or having won, a number of photographic competitions, including being a finalist/shortlisted in the Travel Photographer of the Year (2015 and 2017), Outdoor Photographer of the Year (2017), Wildlife Photographer of the Year (2015) and Environmental Photographer of the Year (2018) competitions. More information is available here.

My first love is for mountainous places and my work (as a glaciologist) and love of climbing and mountaineering means that I spend a lot of time in mountainous locations. My photographs are not always literal representations of a landscape – I also try to show something of the emotions invoked by these special places.

As well as pure landscape photography, I like to capture people in the landscape, but often these images show individuals as small, distant figures. Finally, you will also find here images of the living world… of plants and animals.

Please browse around and if you have any feedback, please get in touch.  If you have any comments or are interested in purchasing prints of any of my photographs, please email me at: dmrippin @ gmail dot com to discuss further.  You can also follow me on Twitter at @dmrippin. Finally, this is an ongoing project, so please check back on a regular basis for new images.

Thanks for your interest.
