At a Young age..

I grew up in a rural community in the north east of Scotland, in fact I spent the early years of my life on the farm where the famous Mackies ice-cream was made, and I was lucky enough to be a child at a time when I could head out the door, explore the surrounding countryside, and return only when I was hungry. I enjoyed being in the great outdoors, and experienced first hand Scotland’s variety, colour, beasts and beasties. Weather was no barrier to an eager child if you wore the right clothes and had the right attitude!



Nikon: I use Nikon D810 cameras, 20-35mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm & 90mm Macro.

Now & the Future…

As an adult, and as a photographer, in some ways little has changed from my child hood. I still venture out into the wilds of Scotland, with my camera, hungry for the right shot, facing sleet or dazzling sun, crossing coastal cliffs or hiking up rugged mountain ranges. Like so many people I have a passion for this land and attempt to convey its mystery and its magic in every shot.  The light in Scotland is a photographer’s dream and it’s a true pleasure to work here.  I don’t see how a photographer could fail to be inspired and captivated by Scotland’s landscapes. The countryside, the weather, the seasons, the wildlife; it’s simply enthralling and always challenging.

I am also very lucky to have a strong connection with the Faroe Islands where my partner is from. These beautiful (considered to be the most beautiful islands) are a photographers paradise and I offer an incredible adventure for you to discover these lands. Click here to find out more.

The timeless quality about being a professional photographer is that at the end of the day, at the end of a shoot, when I’m exhausted and have captured the best shots I can, just like when I was a child, I return home for dinner and start planning the next big adventure
