About

I’m based in Scotland, but being a photographer has taken me across the globe – from the Maasai Mara to Hollywood, The Vatican to The Gorbals. Along the way I’ve met royals, prime ministers, murderers, addicts, and a whole host of interesting characters.

My style is versatile, but I pride myself on combining documentary realism with studio-quality lighting on any location. I work quickly, but never sacrifice attention to detail. I can make real life look cinematic.

As well as being a staff photographer with The Times newspaper, I work with a number of brands to create imagery that drives powerful campaigns and captivates audiences.
