New Galleries Published

Its been a while since I added new images – an omission I’m now correcting !

Firstly, having made a few visits over the last year or so to London – i have a sample of the best pics and created a London gallery. Not done with that as I have another trip planned for next year !

Secondly, I was lucky enough to be able to photograph the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers at their show in Falkirk and at the Edinburgh Fringe with their new show “Beat Grrrls”. Then for something slightly different, I headed over to Glasgow to catch an excellent band called Glasville in their return to performing after a two year hiatus. A selection of images has been added to the “Live Shows” Gallery.

Lastly, I spent some time travelling around the North of Scotland, so I’ve added a Scotland gallery to show some of my latest landscapes (and some mushrooms for good measure !)

Enjoy !

Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year – The Results


The results of the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the year were announced on 22nd Feb 2018, and one of my images (yes, another one of the Kelpies) will be published in the ebook.

Landscape Photographer of the Year – The Results


The results from Landscape Photographer of the Year were announced in Nov 2017, and I was delighted that my favourite image of the Kelpies had been commended, and will appear in the published book.

It’s also been selected as part of an exhibition which will be touring round the UK during 2018.

Salon Updates

Now got the results back from the salons I entered near the beginning of the year

  • 2 acceptances for exhibition 5th Digifocus International Digital Salon 2017
  • 13 acceptances in 5th Greek Photographic Circuit – first time I’ve entered a Greek Salon
  • 6 acceptances in the Trierenberg Super Circuit 2017 – with one image in particular being accepted in all 4 salons. The photo that did well is of a friend of mine David Clapp standing in front of one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls, and it’s one of my favourites from the last trip there.

  • The 9th International Artistic Photo Contest in Vietnam accepted my favourite Kelpies image and awarded it the Vapa Honourable Mention.  2 of the 4 clubs participating in the Finland International Circuit also accepted the image in their salons too !

Buchaille Etive Mor

I’ve started entering Salons again…. and got the results back today from the first one. Out of 8 images submitted – 2 selected for an Honourable Mention and the images were of the Kelpies and Buchaille Etive Mor (only taken at Christmas time!)

Website – Relaunched

david-on-the-drumsIt has been a long time coming, but the website has finally had a revamp, with a new logo and layout. I would like to say a big “thanks” to David Stroud who expertly crafted my new site. His advice and guidance was very much appreciated as we worked through the process of developing the new design, and I’m delighted with the results.

In case you are wondering about the pic, David is also a Taiko Drummer – he is the one on the right !

Published in Outdoor Photography

Along the EdgeI sent in a portfolio of images of the Kelpies to Outdoor Photography earlier in the year and they decided to use one for their “Viewpoints” section. So I wrote up a little bit about the Kelpies and the article can be seen in the Autumn Edition.
