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.

In landscape, people say one should strive to capture what it feels like to be in a given location. For me, landscape is normally calm; it ticks at its own slow and reassuring pace. Therefore, a realistic or documentary approach seems appropriate. 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.

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.

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

Landscape Gallery Here I showcase what I consider to be the best of my work. Some of my ongoing themes include: abstract/closeup boots trees submerged rocks Square-photo landscapes landscape on film View on Google Maps All images here are available for sale as prints or cards. Please respect
