I'm a Scottish photographer based in a lovely little village in Fife. I've been taking landscapes in Perthshire for over 30 years.
I founded the Edinburgh Snappers photography club which I run in my spare time. I'm an expert in multimedia and I have taught professionally in colleges.
Please feel free to critique any of my photos. I'd love to hear what you think be it good or bad.
I've been a photographer for over 30 years. In 1987-1992 I was a staff photographer for a magazine covering sports and news events. I grew up on Kodachrome and a variety of black and white film stocks. Even to this day I still shoot in film.
My work takes me all over Scotland and sometimes abroad, giving me the opportunity to take the photos I do.
I have been working professionally with photoshop for over 20 years and I am professional/instructor level in photoshop up to CS3. Some of my images have deliberate processing errors in them - which I know about. These are "homework" images I upload for my students to identify and learn from.
I'm very much an "experimental" photographer. This comes from my background as a semiconductor engineer where photography, physics, light and spectrometry is used almost daily. I have written papers on things like fibonacci composition and gas cloud physics. I have a fascination with clouds and always try to incorporate them in my landscapes.
I love trying new ways to take photos using bits of string, cheap flashguns, wedding brollies. I'm often out till after dusk lighting up foregrounds in landscapes or making light trails with torches.
I setup and run the Edinburgh Snappers photography group. The results of my photographic experiments are taught at group meetings and trips.
I shoot mainly with a Canon 5D MKII, a 7D and a Fuji X100. I'm very fortunate to have various L Series lenses with my favourite being my Zeiss 21mm Distagon.
I have lived in Perthshire most of my life before moving to Edinburgh where I run my own company. I am a grade 1 piper.
I like cats, rugby and good real ales.
