"I am a light hunter... my weapon is my camera."
Landscape Photographer based in North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland.
I capture light and use it to create unique landscape art images with a modern contemporary feel.
I love exploring the beauty of our planet through photography, and the act of taking photographs anchors you in the here and now, heightening the senses and enhancing the moment.
For me, it’s like hunting light… using the ancient instincts of the hunt but without death as the final result.
You plan, you reconnoitre, you watch, you wait, you take aim, you shoot… but instead of bringing death, you create… and make a moment of light, a moment in time… immortal.
I tend towards minimal long exposures as I enjoy the empty places of our beautiful planet and I find the interaction of light and time particularly fascinating. My photographs reflect my vision of what I saw and experienced at the moment of capture.
