I am an amateur Scottish artist based in Glasgow in the West of Scotland.
My interest in photography stems from my love of travel but it is only in recent years that it has developed into a true passion for me.
I am very fortunate to have experienced some incredible journeys over the years with my wife and whilst photography didn’t play a huge part in planning our earlier trips, it has moved up in terms of importance.
My main interest is in the landscape we live in with a particular focus on the coast but I shoot for myself first and foremost and I photograph scenes that appeal to me.
I am always seeking ways to improve my knowledge, skills and the quality of my work. It’s a continuous journey and I strive to improve my work wherever possible, even by just the smallest of margins.
I have exhibited my work at several open exhibitions including the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and the Paisley Art Institute where I was awarded the James BS Curr award at their 2020 annual exhibition.
My work has also been featured in Outdoor Photographer of the Year and Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year in addition to Outdoor Photography Magazine and Digital SLR Photography.
Anticipation- For a number of years I had felt a desire to shoot square medium format black and white film and as part of a milestone birthday last year I treated myself to a Hasselblad 500C/M camera.
It is a such a different experience from shooting digital but one which I have found to be incredibly enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding.
I have just published my first zine, The Anticipation, which documents my first experience using the camera.
Marmite - Given the lack of winter this year, I was delighted to see a little snow in the Cairngorms last month when I was there.
We made a short walk into the hills, not a great distance, but enough to get a bit of elevation.
What started as a clear day with blue skies soon changed as we turned and watched a snow shower make its way towards us.
I spent time working with the shapes and patterns formed by the heather, rocks, and snow.
I suspect it will be a bit like marmite.
Forest Peripheries - I love spending time immersing myself in woodlands; the scale, the sounds, the smells.
It is a subject I would like to photograph more but one I have found difficult to adapt to my style of work.
This is a small series from two outings in the summer of 2020 and 2021 which I feel connect to my style, and have given me clarity to how woodland photography can work for me.
