Most of my current work has concentrated on the west of Scotland, often looking at edgelands and urban wilderness, places that usually go unnoticed or are hurried past on the way to somewhere else.
I was given my first camera in 1960, a Coronet “Three-D”. My father developed my film and contact-printed the 3D pairs in the kitchen. I was hooked.
I have worked as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. I taught black-and white darkroom skills, ran summer workshops and managed the public darkrooms at a central London arts centre for fifteen years.
