ME

I'm a 34 year-old self-taught landscape photographer, currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

My photographic influences come from who I consider some of the finest landscape photographers: Joe Cornish, Colin Prior, Charlie Waite and David Ward. I shoot entirely using the digital medium.

My never-ending quest for the light with which I paint my landscapes has so far taken me to various locations in Northern England and Scotland including the wild Northumberland Coast, the Outer & Inner Hebrides and the English Lake District. I have also travelled through southern Spain, Portugal, the Balearic & Canary Islands, Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, Turkey and the length & breadth of Italy, all in pursuit of light-worthy travel photography.

The box where the magic happens is the Canon EOS 5D MKII using Canon EF 16-35L II, EF 24-105L, EF 50 & lenses. I have also used Canon EOS 20D and 350D Digital SLRs and Sigma DP1S Large Sensor Compact Camera when travelling. I am currently working with the Sigma DP2 Merrill 45MP Large Sensor Compact Camera which is proving a lightweight marvel to have in the field.

While I often undertake some resizing and sharpening during post-processing, any image enhancement is done 'in-camera' and kept to a minimum using the LEE filter system and Hoya HD and B+W Circular Polarisers, as well as the B&W 10-Stop Circular ND filter.
