Born in Glasgow, Scotland I now reside in Livingston. The journey between those two locations spans Europe and Asia. During that journey my interest in photography was born. However it was not until the digital age my interest become an addiction. Film photography was just a sometime hobby as my interests in the 80’s was the new-fangled personal computer, this lasted up until 2004 when I purchased my first digital camera. The combination of computer and digital camera gave me full control of my photography.
I like to travel and my photography reflects this with landscapes of Scotland, and places I visit throughout Europe. Like others my interest cover the Animal/Bird world (wild and captive), Transportation – heritage steam locomotives invoke my youthful days of chasing that elusive number. I travel with two very good friends and consider myself an enthusiastic amateur photographer who enjoys the challenge that photography brings.
