LINKS and PRESS
I love the act of photography and even if no one else ever saw my images I would still be out there at every opportunity trying to create images that I could be personally proud of. But when I hear that others have enjoyed my images it gives me a real boost, that it's "not just me".
Below are some links to pages where my images have been highlighted and in the spirit of building a photographic community and of promoting landscape photography in Scotland, please visit the pages and enjoy the work of others mentioned there too. If you spot any "dead links" please let me know.
PhotoForMyWall.com - This is my old website, I'll keep it up for a while as it had quite a following with over three quarters of a million hits - but I'm afraid it's served it's purpose now and has become just a little dated looking. If this link just loops you back to this website, it means that I've finally retired it.
Captured Insights - This website highlights photographers and their images, providing some of their backstory. I was lucky enough to be asked to provide my thoughts on my image "Oxide Riot" which had taken 2nd Place in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards.
Scottish Nature Photography Awards (SNPA) - The 2019 results page for this well run national competition has provided a view of my image "Incoming", which was awarded 2nd Place in the Sea & Coast Category of the competition. Another link to the Natural Abstract category results, where "Oxides" is discussed (awarded 2nd Place in that category), is at this link.
The Daily Mail - A piece in the Daily Mail on the results of the 2019 Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year, announced in March 2020. There are some great photographs in there from superb photographers. My image "Cuillin Haze" is shown following my win of the Scottish Weather category.
The Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year- The 2019 Exhibition of Winners Awards and celebration of commended images was due to be hung in a number of locations during 2020 but this has been delayed by the Covid 19 Pandemic. Instead the organisers have cleverly created a virtual exhibition. The link above takes you to the Weather Category which I was awarded 1st place for with "Cuillin Haze". Further categories also feature my commended and highly commended images in The Landscape category and The Urban Category.
On Landscape Magazine - A great write up of the Society of Scottish Landscape Photographers inaugural exhibition in 2017 at the Limetree Gallery in Fort William, featuring select images including Harris Blue
Picture Frames Express - I was asked to provide an interview for Picture Frames Express regular feature on photographers of all styles. Happy to help these guys to as I have used their frames often and am amazed at how accurate their frames cutting is and how quickly they arrive.
Extraordinary Vision Magazine - Sadly there is no link to this as the magazine, while still available as back issues, appears to have stopped publishing. Which is a great shame as for a long time it was free and had great articles by some of the top outdoor photographers in the world. I got a double page spread with "Bowfiddle Sunrise" - it would have been nice to have linked to it.
The Society of Scottish Landscape Photographers - What a great group this is! It's a collective of some of the best photographers of the Scottish landscape currently active, formed for professionals and top quality amateurs, and members include many national and international awards winners, major company ambassadors and nationally published photographers. I've been active in the group since 2016 and this is my main route to exhibiting. I'm lucky enough to have a few images scattered through it's web pages.
