Born in 1955, I have spent most of my life in west / central Scotland and live in Lanarkshire with my long suffering and understanding wife and our canine companions.
I was introduced to photography in my early teens by my father and have been an addict ever since. The process of pre-visualizing an image and seeing that come to fruition will never cease to thrill me and it is that excitement which drives me on, despite the early rises and weight of my backpack, to devote the bulk of my spare time to my passions of landscape photography and hill-walking.
After decades of taking photographic trips abroad, I have decided to dedicate my photographic self, and this site, to the landscape of the British Isles and, in particular, to its mountain landscapes which I consider to be, although smaller in scale than those in other parts of the world, at least their equal. The only exception to this is Iceland, a country to which I have now made 2 visits and which, through its truly unique landscapes, thrills and excites me.
I have another website, the link to which is on the "Links" page of this website. It is my original website and covers the landscape and architecture of all the areas of the world I have visited. If you see an image on that site you would like to order, please do not hesitate to send me an email detailing your requirements.
Apart from my family, photography and hill-walking, the other passions in my life are a love of cooking, fine wine and single malt whisky.
I do hope you enjoy the photographs in this site and those in my original site, should you choose to visit it, and hope they give you some feel for the passion I have for the hills and valleys of Britain's mountain regions.
