ABOUT ME

Award winning, Edinburgh based freelance photographer & image maker.

I originally trained as a sculptor and visual artist, graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in the mid nineties. That's where I first picked up a camera, starting out then with my Rolleiflex SL35 film camera.

Things are digital now, but often those sculptural & fine art concerns still find their way into my work.

Still life is my principal discipline, and I enjoy a particular interest in capturing the fluid beauty in liquids, and this proves a recurring theme in my work.

I also create narrative designs for theatre posters, CD covers and book covers.

I love spending my free time getting lost in the Scottish Highlands, with my camera.
