This is part of a series of botanical images that capture the beauty and fragility of Nature in wild and remote places using the alternative photographic process of wet cyanotype printing.

This is one of a series of seascapes that have all been shot - in solitude, from the shores of Eigg during this unprecedented period of lockdown. Each reflects a moment and a mood from my remote Hebridean island isolation.

This is a series of abstract images documenting the marking of time by Nature during these isolated lockdown weeks as our island remains closed to the rest of the world. Time passing seems to be less dictated by schedules and routine and more visible and discernible as I observe Nature's pulse rather than the ticking of any clock.

“I looked through a lens and ended up abandoning everything else.”

Sebastiao Salgado

I am a photographer based on the Isle of Eigg in the Inner Hebrides. My work is very much inspired by the wild, elemental landscapes and seascapes of the Scottish Highlands and Islands and reflects not only the natural world but also man’s interaction with the environment.

Photography is how I can best express my way of seeing and my passion for the outdoors while also drawing attention to the fragile beauty of the wild, remote and often inhospitable places that remain threatened by climate change and the unprecedented global emergency our planet is now facing.

My work adopts a more mindful, intuitive and immersive approach rather than a purely technical one and incorporates both camera based work and alternative photographic processes.
