Scottish photographer, speaker & retreat leader

Margaret Soraya

Photographer Margaret Soraya, who is based in Scotland and travels worldwide.


I’m Margaret and this is where you’ll find links to all of my photography, workshops, fine art prints and online community as well as my social media accounts, where you can stay in touch.

Creative Haven

Creative Haven is an inclusive, supportive and active online community of photographers of all levels. Whether you’re a professional with bags of lenses or want to capture your life  with your iPhone in a more creative way, you’ll feel at home.

There are also standalone lessons available  that take you through everything from camera basics to raising your social profile.

Photography is a tool to discover and express who you are, what interests you in life and what you find beautiful and intriguing in the world.

I believe that everyone has unique and beautiful work inside of them, as each of us has a unique set of life experiences, personality and vision.

Workshops & retreats

I created the Quiet Landscapes workshops and retreats from a belief in the power of quiet in an increasingly noisy world. 

They’re designed to help you discover your own voice through creative photography in some of the UK’s most remote and beautiful locations.

 Creative Light Festival

This festival is three days of photography, inspirational speakers and workshops to fill your creative well in the wilds of Scotland, near Loch Ness.

Bring your camera & tripod or your smartphone to workshops with myself and 13 other workshop leaders. This deliberately small festival runs from October 27-30, 2022.

Art prints

Bosham Gallery offers a carefully curated collection of my fine art prints at its base in West Sussex and online.

The book & calendar

Still Waters, a photographic story of Loch Ness through the seasons in 70 pages is available in my online store. Also available are 2023 calendars, which usually sell out well before the end of the year. 


If you’re having an outdoor wedding or beach elopement in Scotland, especially the Outer Hebrides islands like the Isle of Harris, I could be the right photographer for you.
