About Peter W Moore

Born and bred in deepest East Lancashire, Peter Moore graduated from the University of Essex in 1985 after reading Mathematics, before proceeding to fail in most everything he attempted. He has often wondered why he bothered getting an education....

It was during a trip to the North of Scotland in 1990 that he fell in love with the Highlands, most particularly on the 2nd August, incidentally the day that Saddam Hussian invaded Kuwait, whilst driving north of Ullapool and listening to Vangelis, that the beauty of the area hit home....

Two summers were spent working in Youth Hostels in the Highlands before, in a moment of epiphany, he finally decided enough was enough and escaped New Labour to start a new life in the Highlands at Kylesku. Subsequently he moved to the east coast of Sutherland.

It was during the summer of 1992 that Peter was smitten by the Mountains. To this day he has not recovered and has climbed over 100 Munros, although he has no intention of completing the round as some of them are far too boring to contemplate and the lower hills are just as good, if not better.

He now lives in Golspie with his cat, Speckles (a rescue cat from the SSPCA), still climbs mountains and admits to not liking football but loves Manchester United...

His images have nearly all been taken the old fashioned way, on a variety of cameras and film stock, but he has had to join the 21st century due to the inability to get film processed to any standard anymore, although whenever possible he uses Fuji Velvia. His work is in private collections in the UK and USA. He also contributes to the Geograph Project, were his work can be found at
