Leica Photographer, Michael Agel captures the characters at The Macallan

The Macallan’s characters captured continued...

Last week we, along with our friends at Leica, took you on a journey through the lens of Leica photographer, Michael Agel. Capturing our Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno and George Craig our Production Team Leader in a series of portraits, Michael brought the heritage, skill and quality of The Macallan and our people to life.

Today, we welcome you to continue on our journey of photographic discovery as we share Michael’s striking shots of Willie Bremner, our Ghillie, and Leica introduces you to Eddie Aldridge, our Farmer...

Wille Bremner, Ghillie

The Macallan estate is skirted by the River Spey, and Willie, our Ghillie, has managed the bank on The Macallan side for over 10 years. Having started fishing at the age of eight, Willie is a true expert in his craft and is always on hand to share his passion with guests fishing on the river. Pictured here on the Spey, Michael beautifully captured Willie’s love for his trade and the charming backdrop of The Macallan’s home. We really are spoilt by our stunning surroundings!

Visit Leica’s blog here and explore Eddie, our Farmer, captured amongst the scenic landscape that surrounds our Spiritual Home. 

Hoping his images take you on a “journey of meaning and passion” Michael Agel described his photographic expedition to The Macallan as one which would be a pleasure for any photographer and says: “Shot simply using the small Leica X Vario I captured the passion and talent of the people at The Macallan.”

Inspired by our Masters of Photography: Elliott Erwitt Edition, Michael journeyed to our homeland with his Leica X Vario to embrace and capture the rich heritage, beautiful landscapes and charming characters found at our home. Why not let Elliott and Michael inspire you? Grab a camera, get snapping and enter our Masters of Photography Master Class competition for a chance to win a Leica C or Leica X Vario Camera.
