I was born in 1959 and have always enjoyed photography – probably because, though my drawings were accurate nobody could say without a prompt, who the subject was! If they already knew, then people would say that I’d “got their eyes”, or suchlike – which prompted me to try photography.
Apart from anything else, it’s a damn-sight quicker than drawing – and more-accurate. That said, I don’t really photograph many people, enjoying instead landscapes (my beloved waterfall on the River Almond in Cramond, especially, or the architecture of Leith).
I also take photographs of my pets: Currently a Border Collie called, “Brodie” but little, “Alfie” (a JRX) needs a mention too: Bless him – he was put to sleep June 15th at 20 years’ old, 2013.
My photographs (usually landscapes but occasionally of food) have been published locally & nationally. Portraits have been in print internationally no less. I will continue my freelance work. And tutoring folk online or in person on photographic techniques, rather than editing ones. I can be relied upon for information on equipment too.
I hope you enjoy my photographs – but I’m also to be found on Facebook or Fine Art of America in addition to Flickr
