Graded Unit Shots

My original plan was to include quite a few people from the various places I visited on my travels. But then after much thought (carried out mostly while travelling) I lapsed onto the theme of solitude and what it means to be on your own.  I am not talking about loneliness, but instead having the state of being alone forced upon you by your environment.    Enjoying being alone ...

Wheelchair Curling in Dumfries

 What a pleasure it was to be invited to Dumfries to capture the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Championships taking place at the Ice Bowl.  Although this was to fulfil a brief for photojournalism as a keen follower of sports this one intrigued me.  In Scotland, Curling is known as the 'roaring game' because the person delivering the stone shouts at those who brush the ice with special brushes  in or ...

Starting College – again

So as I take my first steps into further Education - again, it is only just dawning on me that it is in a new place with new people - and possible new friends.

Frank and Bekkah Get Hitched

A pleasure to be invited to capture some photographs for Frank and Bekkah recently.  After their ceremony at Paisley they treated close friends and family to a meal and a night of laughs.  At just under 2 hours this wasn't the normal wedding day photography assignment, but it it was full of smiles and fun all the same. Bekkah was fantastic in getting the obviously camera-shy Frank to open up a bit ...
