Originally from the Isle of Man but since the early 1990's I have been living in Aberdeenshire in the north east of Scotland, Nowadays I am based just 10 miles outside the eastern boundary of the Cairngorm National Park. When I'm not at work I'm often found hiking up in the Cairngorms searching for ptarmigan or on the Aberdeenshire coast watching gannets. Failing that I'll be listening to The Blue Nile or something of that ilk.

The first camera I owned was a Kodak Instamatic before progressing on to a Praktica MTL-3 35mm SLR in the late seventies. After a time away from snapping I got back into taking pictures as an opportunity to record some views and images when out hiking and also travelling. I am passionate about travelling, having visited many continents and countries, sixty at the last count, both through work and holidays. There are however still plenty of places that I want to visit.

I ventured into the world of micro-four thirds quite a few years ago mainly for the practicality and convenience of its small size - being able to fit a couple of camera bodies plus lenses into my rucksack and anorak pocket. For those that are interested I am currently shooting with a couple of Olympus OM-D EM-1 MkI and MkII bodies with either Olympus, Laowa or Lumix glass attached. I also have a Yi 4k for the occasional film.

Oh, and I've just got a drone.......

I have been fortunate to have some of my pictures shown on the BBC Winterwatch and Springwatch television series' as well being featured on other BBC websites. Various national, international wildlife guides and outdoor publications have also featured my pictures.

I had my first "cover" on the 2015 winter edition of the "Dee'n'Do" magazine, a publication based in the north east of Scotland. More recently one of my pictures was used in a two page spread of the October 2016 edition of "The Scots Magazine" - the world’s best-selling Scottish-interest publication - highlighting an article written by the acclaimed writer and journalist Cameron McNeish.

Most recently I have had a picture of Oxen Craig, included in the 2018 Bailies of Bennachie calendar for the month of January under the title of "New Year Frost".
