"I am a South Queensferry based Photographer creating beautiful landscape photography and working with Humanitarian Organisations to provide quality documentary images of their work around the world.

My landscape work is primarily of Scotland, it’s hard not to take advantage of living in such a beautiful and emotive country! I take any opportunity I can to get out and explore Scotland, where possible I have my 4.5 year old and 10 month old boys in tow! 

Humanitarian Photography has long been a passion of mine, I have been fortunate to work with organisations such as Tearfund, EMMS, Church of Scotland and Christian Aid both in the UK and abroad."

"I first developed a passion for photography when I was studying for a degree in Graphic Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. Back then we learned black & white film processing and printing but it wasn’t until photoshop started to play a large part in my life as a graphic artworker that my interest in digital photography was sparked. I now shoot mainly Scottish landscapes and have been recently commended in the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year and the ‘Take a View’ Landscape photographer of the Year competitions as well as winning the Scottish Nature Photography Awards in 2015."
