About Andy

Hello and thank you

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my site and (I hope) taking the time to browse some of my images. These have been the results of years of highly enjoyable endeavour, improving my photography while learning all the myriad skills that are needed to be outside in remote locations and sometimes dangerous conditions. 

 

The years of photography have given me a knowledge of Scotland that I would never otherwise have had, but mostly the act itself has been a refuge of activity to lose myself in when I have needed escape from life's common pressures. The images may have been the target of trips north, mountains climbed and evenings on the beach, but in many ways they were a by-product of achieving a mindful state and provided me with more peace than I ever anticipated.

 

Please take your time studying my images, by all means ask questions about them. If you really love any and would like a print on your own wall, get in touch (see message box at the bottom of this page) as I do occasionally sell limited editions in A4, A3 and A2 sizes to offset some of the costs of equipment, safety gear and travel. I get a tremendous lift knowing that someone has enjoyed my photography enough to want to spend time with these images on their wall.
