Hollicom was delighted to host a true giant of sustainability and nature photography in the glamorous Glaschu on Thursday 4th November.
Familiar faces from Cullen Eco Friendly Packaging, Green Fulfilment and across Scottish media enjoyed a beautiful lunch from the Merchant City restaurant and were treated to stories of Doug’s time in the wild with Sir David Attenborough. With COP26 in town, Doug was keen to hammer home the importance of sustainability and the impact inaction on climate change could have for the rugged environments he is used to working in.
Doug’s visit to Glaschu was an intimate addition to his 10 date Scottish tour promoting his new book Freeze Frame. The book, which combines beautiful photography with tales of a lived experience in some of the world’s most remote and at-risk environments.
