Ever since I was given my first camera at the age of about eight (a Boots Beirette B.L. which I still have!), I've been hooked on photography. Initially it was all about recording the moment - whatever was happening in my day to day life, I was there snapping away to store away thousands of memories for the future.

That still remains the case today and as a result,
Me and Camera 2
I can barely keep track of the vast and ever-growing catalogue of images cluttering up my cupboards and hard drive! However, over the past ten years or so, I have become more and more interested in other elements of photography: form, colour, juxtaposition, textures and shapes.

My attention is particularly caught by patterns and symmetry in the natural world - gnarly bark on trees, the sprawling branch-like trails left by a retreating tide on sand, ice cracking on a puddle, frosty seaweed draped over a coastline rock. It's the detail and close ups which I most enjoy photographing; making abstracts out of everyday objects or scenes and beauty from the mundane.

That's not to say I don't appreciate the bigger picture as well. I constantly marvel at the landscapes surrounding me in my home, the Highlands, and the variety of life, action and colour within the cityscapes of my previous homes in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

I hope you enjoy flicking through my Galleries. Please drop me a line if you'd like to order a print, have a query or just want to make a comment.
