“I love photography, it's my passion, whether it be photographing people, young, old or somewhere in between, whether it's at a wedding, in the studio, on a mountain side, beside a loch, a river, I simply enjoy taking pictures. It's capturing a moment in time, a memory and then to record that moment to last for a life time.”

"Snow capped mountains, rivers, valleys & hills. Sunrise, sunset and moments in between. Warm days, cold days, snow, frost & ice. Times like these, Gods creation delight. Shafts of light flicker on land, Stormy seas crash over the sand. Autumn leaves, colours yellow, orange & gold. Rough stone walls with stories of old. The play of the light, the wind in your hair. The love of the landscape is natures own prayer."
We supply exquisite fine art landscape prints in beautiful bespoke framing and stunning wall products which enhance any home, hotel or office.
