After leaving school at sixteen, I found myself working within the freight forwarding industry for ten years until a desire to pursue my interest in photography saw me return to full time education to study an HNC in Photography at Aberdeen College. This was then followed by freelance work within the Social and Commercial sector until an opportunity to undertake part-time photographic teaching led eventually to a full-time post. Further study then allowed me to gain an HND in Photography, a BA in Commercial Photography (with distinction) and a Licentiate with the Royal Photographic Society.
While based in Aberdeen, Scotland, I have continued to balance various commercial commissions, collaborations, residencies and personal projects with my teaching roles as Lecturer in Photography at North East Scotland College and Associate Lecturer with Robert Gordons University.
Now working primarily in series on personal based projects my main area of interest currently falls within the natural and built environment and our relationship with the spaces we inhabit. Often drawn to the everyday and commonplace I tend not to apply any pre-conceived ideas of what I want to photograph, preferring instead to remain open to what I happen to encounter and respond to within each setting.
