Statement

My main passion in photography is landscape and the abstract within this. I am a keen hill walker and I love the great outdoors. There is a flood of photographs documenting the most iconic views in Scotland. I look for landscape images that have perhaps not been captured before. Exploring areas on a map that do not get the same footfall is where my interest lies. Tied in with this is an interest in the geological make up of particular regions and capturing images of textures found in rock formations. These types of images tie in perfectly with the landscape shots.
My influences come from watching television programmes and reading books about natural history. This gives me the desire to go out and witness the beauty found in nature at first hand. There is something about standing on the summit of a mountain that cannot be fully explained in words. This feeling for me is addictive; being exposed to the raw power and elements of the outdoors feeds my soul.
