Monday Ground Up: The Brilliance Of Scotland Captured By Photographer Landon Walker


I have the honor and esteemed pleasure of introducing Photographer Landon Walker to Ancient Digger.  This is the first time Landon's work has been featured on the web, so I am truly humbled he has allowed me to share his art with all of you.

I found out about Landon Walker, the drummer for 1149 productions, from Mary Gunderson, the gifted and inspiring lead singer of the band. Mary, Landon, Shaun, Nicole, Colin, and Rachael just spent a few weeks in Scotland marveling at the landscapes unrivaled by so many in the world. I can't say I wasn't jealous of their trip. In fact, I can only imagine gazing upon a place with so much history and I hope I get to experience it firsthand one day.

It's hard to capture this kind of perfection on film, but Landon has managed to do so in his shots of Scotland. The imagery is perfection. The historical significance is present. I was awe struck and enamored, and just couldn't tear myself away from these shots. One can only imagine seeing Scotland through the eyes of an artist. Welcome Landon Walker.

Who is Landon Walker?



My name is Landon Walker and I have lived in the U.S. Pacific Northwest my whole life with dreams of moving to Scotland someday . I first picked up photography in my late teens and simply ran with it. Through school courses, ample amounts of reading and online research, I have developed (and still am developing) a skill and passion that I will pursue my whole life.

My dream is to travel the world with my camera and to capture life in the many different lifestyles that God has blessed our diverse world with.

I seek God in all areas of my life and my love of photography and traveling comes nowhere near the love I have for the Father. I am blessed that He has given me an eye for photography and I thank Him for allowing me to pursue my passion for spirituality and art.
I am a God fearing artist who loves life and will continue to capture its beauty not only through my lens, but through my very being as well.

Final Thoughts:

I find it incredible that everyone of these individuals has a very special gift to share with all of us. Whether through photography, music, or the arts, I think 1149 will change the world. How often can you say that?
