Landscape, Nature and Art Photography

From some of the world's oldest rocks in Assynt in the far north of Scotland, to the flora and fauna that flourish where the forces of geology have caused huge disruption in rural Perthshire, to the landscapes of Argyll and rolling gentle hills and coasts of Dumfries and Galloway, observing the natural environment brings a restorative tranquility.

For the most part, I have a realistic approach to landscape photography. Whether it's rushing waterfalls or calm coastal stillness or a small hedgerow detail that catches my eye, I hope to convey a sense of restfulness and the place's identity.

For four years from April 2010 I made a photograph per day, always black-and-white, focussing on the minutiae of life in the woodlands of Inverawe; a selection of images can be found in my mini-blog, No Light.
I continue to be fascinated by black and white for both art and landscape purposes.

Videos made of the natural landscape

A recent departure for me has been the making of short timelapse videos of the landscape. I wrote a Python script to interpolate from a set of still photographs, applying a handful of effects (blur, gamma, masking), to a set of output images to combine as frames into a movie (e.g. using ffmpeg). The project homepage is at and sources available directly from github. Currently my favourite example using this script is Morning at Glen Affric.

Work I'm prepared to showcase

Portfolio: Fine Art, Landscape and Nature Photography There is a role for landscape photography to function as documentary reportage, a straight telling of what is there. Yet no photograph ever tells the whole truth - simply by varying the composition one presents a new message, favouring selection of some subjects rather than others; by choosing a different film, or shutter speed, or entire workflow, a different understanding of reality can be conveyed. These are my truths.

A gallery of artistic photography

Art Gallery In this gallery I present my more processed art works, "intimate landscape" closeup studies and other scenes that start out as photographs, but are taken beyond mere documentary representation, with an added message or concept.

Photographic Projects I've completed

Photographic Projects Over the past few years I've come up with at least three ideas for series of images, subsets and derivatives of my usual landscape photography. A couple of winters ago, I started to notice the shapes of trees during winter; this became the Space-Filling Curves project, consisting of 6 photos sharing the style of being made on black-and-white film, in square format. From July 2010 to 2011, I've run a project called No Light: Life in the Forest which explores themes of clo

Multi-image digital workflow

Digital Imaging The images in this section arise from use of more advanced digital techniques (stitching, HDR, stacking, etc), with a view to maintaining or improving high image-quality.

Photographs I have taken, mostly intimate landscape, mostly around Scotland.
