MEET

ANNA DEACON

Hi, I’m Anna. I have been working as a photographer for the last 11 years since moving on from my previous career in the music industry when we started a family, it’s a little less rock and roll these days but I love it!  

We relocated to Edinburgh a couple of years ago, but still travel back to London often and also to the Highlands so can plan shoots in any of these locations.  

I am primarily a commercial and travel photographer who loves to work outdoors and with brilliant brands, I especially love working with Scottish brands, companies with amazing ethical policies, and really interesting people.

In November 2019 my first book came out. Taking The Plunge was created with my friend and co-author Vicky Allan. Published by Black & White Publishing, it went on to become a best seller in its category and is an exploration of the wonderful world of wild swimmers in Scotland. It started as a photography project on instagram and grew from there. Click here to find out more.

Our second book, For The Love Of Trees was published by Black & White Publishing on October 29th 2020 and is a study of people who love trees,  what they mean to them, and why in this climate emergency this is more important than ever. Click here for more info about this book.

I’m also working on a third book, which is due to be published in early 2021 by Wild Things Publishing which is called Wild Guide Balearics. Working alongside my sister who has lived in rural Mallorca for nearly 20 years, the book is a guide to the wilder spots of all four of the Balearic islands, hikes, wild swimming spots, forests, secret beaches.

I’m always really inspired by our beautiful landscape and when I’m not photographing it, I’m usually found swimming outdoors or exploring wild places.  My photographic and written work has had coverage in numerous publications including The Guardian, Bored Panda & The Scotsman amongst many others.

I can also happily write content to go along with the images I provide for publications, or collaborate with amazing writers to do so, and as such am always interested to hear from brands that are wanting more than just images, but content for web, brochures, and social media platforms.

I can be found on social media through the following channels separate to the project based instagram accounts linked above – come and say hello!
