Meet – Shona Perkins – Finding Purpose Through Photography – with the Company of Makers

Join Shona as she talks us through her journey into ICM photography, how her approach to life as well as photography has changed significantly over the past few years and how she found her purpose again.

About Shona

Shona is a Scottish Photographer, specialising in Seascape and ICM Photography. Heavily influenced by contemporary art and abstract minimalism, Shona has spent the past few years developing her passion for intentional camera movement (ICM photography). Often described as creating a sense of calm through her imagery, Shona manages to capture solitude, tranquillity and haunting beauty in her work, all whilst maintaining her distinctive painterly style. Like so many other creatives, Shona finds photography a way to provide balance and help to quiet the mind, using her past experiences to translate emotional depth through her work.
