This is my passion.
I want to create photographs that tell stories and show character; that capture light in fleeting moments and that encourages the viewer to explore further.
In 2013, an idea arose from a combination of my greatest passions; Scotland, it’s History and Photography. Within this small nation, there is so much diversity. A vast array of ancient historical landmarks in almost every corner brushing shoulders with Scotland’s ultra-modern architecture in our most cosmopolitan cities. My desire to share these passions and my country with visitors and locals alike led to the birth of Photo Walk Scotland.
Urban or rural, Scotland’s skylines are truly breath-taking. Magnificent jagged peaks rising from the seas; blinding white sandy beaches, dark forbidding lochs seamlessly contrasting to the lively, storytelling backdrops of our famous cities. In experiencing Scotland, there is little wonder in the regard that it really is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
It is about those special moments I have with people and the environment I find myself in.
Scotland is a small country with a big history. We can boast human habitation for over 14,000 years and although our ancestors are long gone, there are still traces of our ancient residents and visitors such as the Celts, Picts and Vikings. We have hundreds of castles and fortified houses, ancient brochs, medieval abbeys and churches. You simply cannot escape the history that shaped this wonderful nation.
With my love for Scotland and its history, everything naturally comes alive with a camera in my hand. There are no longer static journeys from Glasgow to Glencoe, Edinburgh to Skye; every trip, no matter how short, becomes a trove of potential photographic discoveries. Countless images patiently wait for us around every corner to be found. Above all else, what really has become my passion, is the desire to help others get the most from their camera and their Scottish photography experience.
