I was born in 1959 and have always enjoyed image-making – probably photography most 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 towards photography. I seem fairly-good at it. Landscapes (my beloved waterfall on the River Almond in Cramond or the architecture of Leith where I was initially brought up, though in a different bit) are ‘my thing’. Later-on, we moved to Barnton and was walking distance of the river Almond.

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 at 20 years’ old, June 15th 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 gear.

I hope you enjoy my photographs – but I’m also to be found on Facebook or Fine Art of America in addition to Flickr
