Walk with me from Edinburgh, through the western highlands to swim in Loch Ness, hike the Isle of Skye and storm the battlements of Stirling Castle. All while wearing a kilt. Enjoy the view! SCOTLAND BLOGS HERE

Current Projects

Currently Editing

I took 5972 photos on my three week Scotland Trip. I am slowly organising and editing them in hopes that I captured the Loch Ness Monster.

New Skills

I am always looking to improve my skills and one I have my eye on is ‘Stacking’. More on this as it develops.

Free Photoshoots

I am looking for models or anyone that would like a FREE photoshoot. Contact me to tee up something special.
