About Me

Jim Malcolm Photography

about_me I have been passionate about photography since I was given my first camera, a Kodak Brownie, when I was 10 years of age. Now many years later I shoot my unique brand of images using Nikon cameras and lenses (currently D3 DSLR and a Coolpix S710).

My work has been published in a wide range of media, including The Independent and The Guardian newspapers of the UK; The Panama Maritime Handbook (Seatrade Publications UK); Focus Magazine and Panama Now (Panama); JCB advertising material, as well as various books including the Moon Guide to Panama Handbook. I have held two recent exhibitions of my work in Panama and several of my images are on permanent display at the Interoceanic Canal Museum in Panama City . An exhibition of my photographs is planned to coincide with the Edinburgh International Festival in Edinburgh (Scotland) in August/September 2010. Some of my photographs will also be displayed at an exibition on Panama, arranged by the Panama Canal Museum, at the Smithsonian, Washington DC in October 2009.

I spent many years working overseas as a diplomat in countries as varied as Angola, Belgium, Burma, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya and Syria. I retired as British Ambassador to Panama in 2006.

Nowadays I am partly based in my native Edinburgh but also Panama, a country which I love, and which I visit several times a year on assignment.

Experienced in photo-journalism, travel and maritime photography I am happy to travel anywhere in the world to undertake your photographic requirements. Mail me!
