I am a photographer based in the Central Belt of Scotland near Stirling. Since retiring from my main employment I have concentrated more on my photography which has become a passion.
I have gained the Fellowship Distinction from the Royal Photographic Society of which I am exceptionally proud of. I also gained the MPAGB Distinction around the same time from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. Since gaining my Fellowship of the RPS I have been invited to sit on the Licentiateship, Associateship and Fellowship Panels in the Visual Art Categories.
My main photographic interests are Landscape, from which I get great satisfaction in trying to recreate the lighting and sense of the place I am photographing although in some aspects of my work I also have a more creative side where I go off in Photoshop to try and create a more artistic version of the Landscape. This was the area that my Fellowship concentrated on.
My work is exhibited in Photographic Salons Worldwide and has been published in various magazines and books.
