A local family in Flores, Indonesia take me in and fill me with fresh fish broth and coconut water.... The kindness of strangers will never fail to surprise and bring a warm glow to my heart.

This be me!

Whether you have dropped by to find your perfect wedding photographer or are looking for an intrepid adventure documentary photographer, maybe you’re here to book a place on one of my Isle of Man or Scottish Highland photography workshops, whatever the reason you have dropped by you’ll no doubt want to know a little bit more about me.

Born in 1975 on the Isle of Man, a tiny 'rock' located in the middle of the Irish Sea 15 miles South West of the Southern most point of Scotland, 30 miles East of Ireland, 30 miles West of England's Lake District and about 40 miles North of Holyhead in Wales.  In the middle of everywhere, in the middle of nowhere. Shaped by wilderness (what do you mean you thought I looked weather beaten?!) and my desire for the arts I found myself in pursuit of light. After studying Biology at university in Edinburgh I continued with photography. Turning it in to my full-time profession 14 years ago. Since then I captured images for myself, my friends and clients all over the world. Sounds like fun? It is. But it’s even harder work!
