Beginnings

I was born in 1967 to Scottish parents. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I've always been drawn to the arts: drawing and painting as a kid, music composition as a teenager and photography as an adult.

I've been very lucky to have some inspirational people around me during my formative years. I owe a terrific debt to my two music teachers from my time at high school for allowing me the freedom to explore my creative side.

As I've grown older, I've found that I'm much more attracted to the wilderness and the people that live on the edges of it. Photography is a great way of getting closer to the land and the cultures that inhabit it.


Equipment

I'm a medium format film shooter only. I use Fuji Velvia 50 RVP film stock for all of my landscape work, and Kodak Portra 160 and 400 for my portraiture work.

My square images are made with Hasselblad V system film cameras, and my 4:5 aspect ratio images are made with the Mamiya 7II system. Portraits are made with Contax 645 cameras.
