About my photography, equipment and work
Photography is very special to me and means many
It's challenging. I closely watch weather patterns to capture a moment at the right time in the right light and I'll return to a location many times until I capture the right moment, sometimes sitting and waiting until the light works it's magic.
It's adventurous. In many ways setting off on a photographic shoot with no particular place in mind and finding some amazing scenes and eyecatching objects en route is exciting, always new things to see and find.
It's calming and peaceful and combines well with our passion for nature and the outdoors and our love of walking, hobbies that both my husband and I share.
Lastly it's enjoyable and fun, never a chore or hard work.
My inspiration comes from the stunning landscapes and beauty which surround us in the Highlands of Scotland, something I never take for granted.
I also aspire to the great Ansel Adams, an absolute master of his time. Joe Cornish and his wonderful landscape books also give me inspiration.
Last and by no means least inspiration comes from my wonderful husband who has taught me most things I now know about photography. With his love, encouragement and support it makes the hobby that we share together all worthwhile.

My Work and Goals
Being in the fortunate position of no longer having to go out to work every day I can devote a lot of time to my photography. Weather and lighting conditions dictate times I go out but I aim to be out most days at some point and at least 2-3 full days a week, sometimes more!
My goal? well there isn't one really. As long as I can pick up my camera and get out there and capture as much beauty as I can that I can share with the viewer, if one enjoys what one see's then my goal is complete, after all there are always two people involved in every good photograph.........the photographer and the viewer!
