It’s a photographers business to seek out and illustrate dreams.  

To provide a portal for the viewer. An invitation to cross the threshold to enter another world.

Photographs are poems about time and place.

I have worked in the fashion houses and jewellers vaults of the industries biggest names. The creative collaborative work environment of large scale shoots is fast paced, frantic and ever changing. I thrive on the energy of it. It fuels my own creative process. Finding inspiration in unexpected places, which I can distil into something authentically my own. Photography has been my language since childhood. After completing my MA in History or Art, at St.Andrews University, I trained in the studio and dark room of renowned Scottish Photographer Craig MacKay. I then went on to study specialist antique development and printing techniques at Central St. Martins – London. Following this I headed up the photography department for Bonhams - Scotland. My experience and specialist training in this global and divergent company gave enormous breadth to my experience. Which took me across the pond where I assisted acclaimed artist Erik Madigan Heck and managed his studio. Living a master class in his process of other worldly photography, witnessing his unique use of colour and natural day light. I have since worked independently for press, publishing and brands, such as The National Trust, BBC & TED.

The constant thread through all of my work has been story telling. I find portraiture gives a story a voice in the most profound manner. We all have a story. Thats where we find our humanity.

Now freelancing from the Edinburgh, I continue to contribute to PhotoVogue, Vogue Italia and strive to illustrate my unique and authentic photographic voice.
