My career in photography started in 2009 during my last year of college. I started working in a portrait studio and was there for 2 years. I learnt a lot during these 2 years - primarily, using light creatively - whether that be through natural light or flash.
I eventually took over that studio and ran photography workshops in manual photography and creativity.
My initial attraction with photography was for the journalism side of things – I am passionate about telling stories through photography and recording moments - so, in 2013, I was grateful for an opportunity that came along to work as an editorial photographer.
The skills I learnt as an editorial photographer are still key to the photographs that I take today - with regard to composition and creativity.
I then went on to train clients with Fujifilm, which was the beginning of my love for mirrorless system cameras.
I am based near Edinburgh in Scotland and now work for the amazing team at SmugMug. I photograph a bit of everything in my spare time but the 'wanderlust' in me likes to discover new places and I enjoy photographing the sights I see.
I can't imagine a life without photography; it is such a great source of expression and story-telling. The good thing about photography is that you can never know it all and every day sees new challenges, which keeps things fresh and interesting.
