About

Photography has been my passion from a very early age, my father bought
me my first camera and taught me everything about processing and developing and at 12 I had a darkroom below the stairs.
With my love of walking and climbing landscape has dominated most of my work and living within easy reach of the Southern Highlands and the Borders gives me many opportunities to chase and try and capture the elusive but all important unique Scottish light.

I have been a Nikon user for many years, since I was given the use of a Nikon F2 with photomic head during a residential photographic course at St Andrews university. I still have my first Nikon camera an F2 and It still works perfectly.

I have been published in a number of national photography magazines including Digital SLR user, Photography Monthly, Practical Photography,Outdoor Photography,N magazine the new Nikon magazine,Scottish Field,Landscape photography magazine and Golf International. I also have regular commissioned work and sell images to various companies for publicity and new web sites. I also exhibit in a number of venues and galleries throughout Ayrshire.

In late 2004 I went fully digital, the latest DSLR's are amazing Instruments giving superb quality Images.The clarity, colours and resolution from the Nikon cameras and lenses is outstanding.
And It is wonderful having full control over the processing of the images to bring out the best possible quality.

I use Photoshop CC 2017 software to convert the raw images for ultimate quality, then into my favourite plugin suite Nik complete for any final tweaks. It really is exciting times for Digital photography.
