A Scottish Landscape Photographer, writer, educator and composer.
When I picked up a camera for the first time, it was with an innocent desire to explore the world, engage and be free. Trying to make sense of myself, my emotions, fears, anxieties and passion, I would flee to the woods, to run, climb, play and think.
Ageing makes us cynical, competitive, judgemental and self-conscious, in fact, the antithesis of youth, when we have the world at our fingertips. All the trappings of adulthood are meaningless as we lose our innocence and vitality.
Through my images, writing, music and workshops, I aim to reconnect with the joy of innocent exploration. To try and fail, to play and be joyful. Image-making is a risk free environment, yet it causes us so much stress. "Will people like it?" "Am I any good?"
Walking with a camera in my hand is a joyful thing, free from judgement, expectation or fear. Let me show you how.
