“I grew up in Ordiquhill in Aberdeenshire, where I always loved exploring the outdoors and this led to my passion for landscape and nature photography. Through photography, I aim to show the processes and environments that form Scottish landscapes and illustrate the feeling I get when exploring Scotland’s wild places. After working in Wildlife Filmmaking for a few years and living in Bristol, Glasgow and Mexico I moved to Inverness. I am currently studying forestry and looking forward to spending more time with my camera out in the hills and forests.”
