“The Ephemeral Hiddenness of Skye is about trying to capture those fleeting glimpses of an Island that most people never see, and I almost feel as if Skye reveals itself to me in a way it doesn’t with other people.” (Alison Price from film voiceover 2019).
As part of my Final Major Project for the MA Photography at Falmouth University I worked with a young filmmaker, Gemma Wearing, to produce a short film about me and my work entitled In Search of the Ephemeral Hiddenness of Skye.

I produced the Concept Note for the film and worked closely with the filmmaker to produce a storyboard and shooting list. My objectives were as follows:
1. To provide a brief and clear articulation of my photographic journey,
2. Explain why Skye and why the images I make.
3.Give people a sense of the environment and conditions in which I work,
4.Provide a visual sense of the Island for those that have not visited Skye and
5.Give the audience a sense of what photography means to me, how having a camera in my hand relaxes me, and how working in the landscape calms my soul and eases my memories.
We worked on location in Skye for four days recording film segments, stills, drone footage and an interview from which the voiceover was derived. The words are mine and were unscripted – I think this helps to give an authentic and honest account.
Great film that gives real insight into your motivation. I wanted more of it.
Are you tempted to get a drone?
Thank you. Was certainly tempted by a drone – however I think it is a real skill and very different to still photography. Not sure I am up to that!
