|I was born in 1967 to Scottish parents from Sutherland. My father is from Golspie while my mother is from Embo.
I live in Edinburgh.
I've always been drawn to the arts: drawing and painting as a kid, music composition as a teenager and photography as an adult.
My Photography interest was born out of an introduction in the late eighties by a friend that I've known since high school when he purchased a brand new Pentax ME Super.
The same friend introduced me to Ansel Adams work and his enthusiasm for what Adams had created drew me in. I was hooked.
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.
My images have been published throughout the world in travel literature publications and on the front cover of various books.
I've written occasionally for some of the photography magazines in the past, about the process of photography which is an emotional art that connects the photographer to the land, not a fascination with equipment.
