I have been a professional landscape photographer for a long time. My special passion is for nature & cityscapes in both abstract and classic forms. I love to capture fleeting and lyrical qualities presented by the many rich forms inherent in the Scottish landscape.


I started out with a manual Nikkormat camera travelling abroad in the 80’s. Almost it seemed that after just a few mesmerising moments,  I became hooked. Something shifted & I realised the difference between snapping and making a picture. Early days were heady and obsessive, it was so important to get the composition and the moment right that failure caused suffering, so learning came quickly. I realised that "seeing" was the name of the game, technical skill developed from necessity. I loved encounter and the challenge to be ready to zero in on the moment.

I was travelling and working in Libya & S.E Asia in particular Vietnam but returned to the North Sea and divided my time between oilfield engineering and landscape photography. I shot oil rig life from the inside culminating in my first book “On The Rigs” co - authored by Caithness poet & playright  George Gunn. Since then I have been exploring Scotland at large and publishing regional and thematic titles to a range of postcards, calendars, books and multimedia products under the banner Lyrical Scotland.

In early 2010 the "Lyrical Scotland” brand was acquired by a third party for whom I continue to produce an annual collection of calendar and postcard images. Self publishing new book titles, stock images, travel and exhibitions are my main interests these days.

I love my job, it is my mistress, a way of life.
