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...)

30 March 2021 I am absolutely thrilled to have won the Scottish Wildlife Portrait category in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards Photographic Competition! This bearded seal visited in autumn 2019. I've entered lots of competitions over the years, won a few minor ones and been commended in some major competitions but this is the first time I've won a category in such a prestigious national competition. Hats off to the other category winners with some absolutely fantastic photography and especially the overall Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year 2020, Charles Everitt with his shot "Taking Root". You can buy my winning image here:
