Since a young age I’ve had a passion for photography but like all young people it seemed to come and go in fads, I’d buy a camera, use it a couple of times then put it in the drawer.

I have now been lucky enough to of been published in all the leading landscape books such as Landscape Photographer Of The Year, Scottish Landscape Photographer Of The Year, International Garden Photographer Of The Year and Outdoor Photographer Of The Year, along with various high street magazines. I’m very passionate about my photography and I’m always happy to spend time speaking to people and passing on tips and the information I have learnt over the years.
