About the Artist
I’m a freelance television director, filmmaker and photographer, and live close to the Trossachs National Park, Stirling. I’m passionate about shooting landscapes on film, and often those close to home. I work with old medium and large format cameras, and prefer the slower, more contemplative process and the resulting aesthetic and atmosphere that the final darkroom prints can produce.
I’m often inspired to shoot the landscapes and subject matter close to home but given half a chance I can be found further afield, in remote locations around the UK such as the Scottish Highlands, the Hebrides, North Wales, North Yorkshire, and Northumberland.
Despite the immediacy and convenience of the digital file format I’m still passionate about shooting landscapes on film using large and medium format cameras – I’m dedicated to working on classic film stock and striving to perfect my film photography techniques.
I prefer the slower, more contemplative process of working with larger film formats and the resulting aesthetic and atmosphere that they can often produce. I never cease to be excited by shooting on film, and hope that I never will. The anticipation of the follow-up chemical process - particularly when processing my own black and white negatives for printing in the darkroom is what I really enjoy.
