"My photographic journey started way back at University in Glasgow when my dad gave me an old Canon film SLR. Back in those days I used to print and sell Cibachrome prints from my student flat in Glasgow to help keep me in film and equipment. My biggest influences were photographers Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell and the artist JMW Turner.

"I've been lucky to work with some great athletes and companies over the past few years. My work is split between adventure sports photography and filming work and while my background is in still images, I love the extra dimension that film allows.

"The things that inspire me are great light, dramatic clouds, landscape and some cool action, whether it's bikers, climbers, runners or kite surfers. Being able to communicate the emotions that experiencing these sports in some truly stunning locations is a privilege. I am an ambassador for F-stop gear and Elinchrom and run workshops on adventure sports photography.

"I use Canon camera bodies EOS 1DC and 5D Mark III along with L-series lenses, as well as a GoPro Hero 5 and GoPro Hero 4.

"I love working with people that have their own creative ideas and collaborations with poets, dancers, musicians and other photographers can be a lot of fun. I'm always on the look out for new and inspiring projects that will take me out of my comfort zone and come up with something fresh and exciting."
