I am a snapper of photographs and a grabber of video based in Castle Douglas at the centre of Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland. Dumfries and Galloway is an unspoilt area often overlooked by visitors to Scotland. The area has a varied coastline, lochs, hills, forests and the Dark Sky Park, an ideal location for anyone who enjoys the outdoor life.
Over the years I have photographed music events including The Wickerman Festival, Electric Fields and Youth Beatz.
I have also became the in house photographer at Lochside theatre which was renamed to The Fullarton after a major refit.
My theatre photography features in house productions by The Lochside Theatre Company and The newly formed Fullarton Theatre Company. I have also had the opportunity to photograph many of the acts who have appeared on the the stage of the theatre over the years.
One activity that keeps me very busy is producing b-roll video clips and images which are uploaded to iStock by Getty Images, all my video work and a selection of images can also be found at Getty Images, images and video can be downloaded from both sites, even if you do not want to purchase images or video you can still have a look at my portfolio. The next time you look at a website or a printed publication who knows, you may be looking at one of photographs.
I am also available for commercial work and have produced a great deal of images and video to help promote the products and services local businesses provide.
To capture the outstanding beauty of Dumfries and Galloway I use equipment from Nikon, Sony and DJI to produce high quality images and 4K b-roll video suitable to promote products and locations.
If you have a particular need for images or video not already in my portfolio or stock libraries at Getty or iStock, the links for these are below, please contact me.
I have always been fascinated by aerial photographs and video and with introduction of drones with the capability to produce high quality images and video I decided to take my work to a new level, 400 feet is the maximum altitude I can fly at.
To operate a drone for commercial purposes in the UK the operator must have an Operational Authorisation from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). To gain this permission requires studying various aspects of aviation, sitting a theory exam and a practical flight assessment.
As a holder of a CAA Operational Authorisation Specific Category UKPDRA-01, I have permission to fly drones for commercial operations, all flights are covered by public liability insurance.
