I am primarily a landscape photographer and my first love is for mountainous places. My work (as a glaciologist) and love of climbing and mountaineering means that I spend a lot of time in mountainous locations and this gives my photography a unique take on these landscapes. 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, I’d love to hear from you.  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.
