Lerwick, Shetland Islands, UK
I am a part-time freelance photographer (my full-time job is chartered town planner and environmental manager) in the Shetland Islands, UK. My main photographic interests reflect my lifelong interest in all aspects of the environment, from astronomical phenomena to landscape and wildlife. I also enjoy photographing people whether during editorial and news work or for commercial portraits and product photography.
I have had cameras with me since a young age and used a wide variety of formats and film types. However, whilst digital cameras have enabled standards of image quality and speed of transmission unimaginable compared with film, I still enjoy working with film, especially for my more creative projects. My work with people and events is mostly commercial, whilst my landscape, wildlife and astronomical photography is much more personal to me. I can spend many months planning some of this work and many hours or even days in executing a specific project.
