This BBC FOUR documentary on Scottish photographer Albert Watson is entertaining, insightful, and inspirational.

From the description on YouTube...

"Documentary following Albert Watson over the course of a day photographing the barren, beautiful landscape of the Isle of Skye. Edinburgh-born Albert Watson is one of the world's most successful commercial and fashion photographers. He has lived in the US for over 30 years, where he has photographed more than 100 Vogue covers and created some of the most iconic celebrity images of the 20th century, from Albert Hitchcock to Naomi Campbell. In recent years he has turned to landscape photography, and in this film he comes back to Scotland for his latest project. Albert reflects on his past work and discusses the challenges of transferring his unique style to landscape photography."

A great quote from the documentary...

"Once a camera's in my hand, you forget everything. You don't even notice anything. You don't notice rain, you don't notice the cold. Basically, you just keep going." ~ Albert Watson
