• Chasing the Light

  • Above All Else

  • We are very small against nature

  • Light is Everything

  • Action shot

With my architectural education background I’ve always had a passion for creating and studying Art & Design during my university years including hand drawings and sketches. Photography became the next step in my creative life and I haven’t stopped since. My photography is a continuous journey and I am constantly trying to develop my skills as I can to help push my photography to new levels and explore new avenues of creativity.

Living and working in Glasgow in Scotland, I am naturally drawn towards the wilderness of the Highlands and Islands. This extraordinarily varied environment combined with the notoriously unpredictable weather can produce real moments of magic that transform the landscape into something exceptional.

My galleries are a reflection of my photographic interests and this website was created to exhibit some of my favourite images.

Thank you very much for visiting my page. Hope you enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
