I am a freelance photographer based in Shetland, UK and focus on creating photographic images that capture the essence of Shetland, including its people and events, its wildlife and landscape as well as those of places further afield. Images are available as prints (including mounted or framed) and for licensed use. I am available for commercial and commissioned work in Shetland and elsewhere and run occasional workshops so that I can share my passion for photography and for Shetland. (...more...)

9 November 2021 With Christmas now just around the corner I thought now would be a good time to let you know I'll be exhibiting at the Shetland Arts & Crafts Association's craft fair at Mareel on 3-5 December 2021. It will be a smaller event this year, with tickets available for pre-booking at Shetland Arts. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates on products and online events.

17 October 2021 I have just added my new 2022 Shetland calendar and new jigsaws and mugs to the Shetland Arts & Crafts Association Marketplace, where you'll find a superb range of high quality arts and crafts gifts from Shetland. You'll also find my products on Isle20, where you'll find a wide range of small businesses from the Scottish islands, including Shetland. It's also possible to purchase a very wide range of photographic prints, including mounted, directly on this website - head to the "Galleries" tab.

14 October 2021 I'm very happy to say that I received an honorable mention in the International Photography Awards - ipa, otherwise known as the Lucie Awards. Contemporary Shetland knitwear designer Nielanell commissioned me to photograph her new clothing and accesories ranges and this is one of the final images that their fantastic creative team helped make possible.

30 September 2021 I was absolutely thrilled to have won the Scottish Wildlife Portrait category in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards Photographic Competition with my photo of a Bearded Seal that visited in autumn 2019. You can buy my winning image here: and, from 1st October 2021 - 15th November 2021 it's on display as part of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards Touring Exhibition at Logan Botanic Garden Dumfries & Galloway DG9 9ND.

19 February 2021 I am now offering a short online "Better Photography for You" workshop series available for live delivery one-to-one or to small groups over 4 sessions. Please contact me for details and to sign up.
