I studied Photography & Film at Napier University in Edinburgh. All of my projects were completed using medium and large format cameras, and I loved using them. I first started using digital cameras when I became a press photographer at Aberdeen Journals, a couple of months after leaving university. I loved the speed and ease of digital photography, and worked under pressure, meeting three tight deadlines a day. During my time at Aberdeen Journals I was shortlisted for Young Scottish Press Photographer Of The Year. After 3 years working as a photojournalist, in 2009 I packed up my camera kit in and decided to fulfil my passion for travel photography. My top five countries so far are Nepal, Bolivia, Peru, Morocco and Italy. I won SWPP Travel Photographer Of Year 2011 with an image I took whilst travelling Morocco.
I set up my own photography business in 2010. I started by photographing friends’ weddings and loved capturing a couple’s big day. My wedding photography style is relaxed and candid – I love a capturing all those special moments.
I also photograph PR and commercial work. Clients include: Historic Scotland, Dandara, CR Smith, Opito, The Big Issue, Auto Trader, Siemens and many local companies. It’s great to get a varied work life and my press background has prepared me for most situations.
So, I should really write a quick paragraph about other things, so you don’t think I’m too boring and can only talk about photography! I live in the country with my partner Ben and gorgeous whippet Winnie. I like gin and the occasional glass…. eh bottle of prosecco, going on lots of walks, trips to art galleries and researching new places to travel . I love dogs- especially my little Win, stripey tops and my beloved magnet collection (little bit odd i know) I listen to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rolling Stones and The White Stripes.
