I have grown up in central Scotland, which has some of the best scenery in the world. My passion for photography began when I got my first Canon film camera at age 11. I spent hours taking pictures on the outskirts of Glasgow, writing down the camera settings I had used, so that I could understand how each setting impacted on each photograph. This was a great way to learn the basics of photography.
Over the last 13 years I have developed an addiction to Landscape photography. Many people get their kicks from a range of sports; however I get mine from capturing panoramic landscapes. In order to ensure I capture a landscape at its best, I will get up for a sunrise or wait at the top of a mountain until sunset. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like, if there is a fantastic landscape I will do my best to capture it.
Over the last month or so I have committed to climbing all of the Munro’s and Munro tops within the Scottish highlands. This is a fantastic way to see the Scottish highlands at their best, as they offer breath taking views which will further strengthen my passion for landscape photography.
My current photography kit compromises of a Canon EOS 7D which has a 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a BG-E7 battery grip, a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM each with Hoya Polariser. When I use my equipment I shoot in the RAW format and do post processing work on my computer.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I have enjoyed taking the pictures.
