History

My first camera, a Zenit EM SLR was purchased in 1979 when I was a schoolboy, with black & white and Cibachrome printing having taken my interest. However after seven years my enthusiasm sadly dwindled. Years later, a compact digital camera was purchased in 2000 to record my children growing up and my interest in photography was rekindled. My Minolta Maxim 7000 film camera was replaced by a digital SLR in 2006.

Background

Through my main profession as a teacher of Computing my photography skills have developed over the years. By actively encouraging students into photography in the same way I learned at school I have now come full circle.

As a member of Carluke Camera Club my work is regularly seen in National level competitions.

Photography gives me great pleasure – the process of having to think, compose and take shots as well as the hours spent in Lightroom and Photoshop taken to pore over my efforts.

Perhaps my wide range of photography genres reflects my perspective – I simply enjoy all aspects of photography.

Vision

I live in the south of Scotland near Glasgow and many of the images on this site are taken locally. As you will see, from my recent photographs sport and landscape are a particular passion. Specifically, my mission is to identify ways to create and capture engaging photographs. Much can be learned by studying the work and philosophy of other photographers.  From that, I now adopt a vision driven approach to storytelling. I look to tell a reflective story in my photographs and this is the key to better expression. Importantly, the harder you try the more rewarding results can be.
