Hi and thanks for visiting my profile.

I’m a Scottish Photographer, Painter and Digital Artist that specializes in Landscapes, Nature, Sunlight and Color.

In 2008 after a serious fall attempting to summit Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa for charity, I had to undergo major spinal fusion surgery to replace three disks in my spine with titanium cages resulting in me having to give up work and review my life. Learning to walk again and live with constant Chronic Nerve Pain has helped me focus on my passion for creativity through the mediums of photography, painting and digital art. Tuition at Glasgow School of Art has helped me capture and share my translations of nature’s soul via visual representations of light and color.

What is more inspiring and humbling than watching the sky break like an egg into a full sunset as the water catches fire below it.

Enjoy and Immerse.

Excited about the opening of my new exhibition of Digital Art and Photography titled “Nature’s Complexion” at Gallerisso in lower Manhatten, New York starting on the 8th March. Our sun’s rays interacting with earth’s atmosphere to create the hue’s, tones and color palette that make up these wondrous images showered on us by Mother Nature. / http://gallerisso.com/?p=1269
