We welcome photographic contributions to our guidebooks and to the SMC Journal.
Photos are best submitted as digital images but slides/transparencies are also welcome. Please do not scan slides. All slides will be looked after and returned in due course. We pay for photographs used in our guides and each provider of a published photograph will also receive a free guide/journal. Photographers always retain the copyright of their photographs.
Please read our technical guidance, below, carefully before submitting digital photographs.
We are currently working on a new edition of our Scottish Rock Climbs selected guidebook, and are looking for good action photos for it. Here is the provisional list of routes downloadable as a pdf.
If you have any good photos of any of these routes then we would be keen to see them. The deadline for submissions is likely to be towards the end of 2018.
However please don't delay, we need to work out where the gaps are in our coverage, we're happy to recieve photos at any time.
There is a small payment and free copy of the guide for contributors.
Portrait (vertical) format or landscape (horizontal) format are equally acceptable. Historical photos (first ascents, aided ascents, etc.) are also useful. Please send photographs to:
St. Mary's Road
Photos for the annual SMC Journal should be submitted by the end of January to be accepted for the next issue.
If you have any suitable photos which you would like to see in the SMC Journal then please send them to the Journal Photo Editor.
Photos submitted in connection with an article should be sent alongside the relevant article to the Journal Editor.
