I am a Scottish photographer, filmmaker, artist and educator who lives in Lewes, East Sussex. As with most students the magic of seeing an image appear gripped me from the start which led me to believe in the symbiotic relationship between creativity and naivety. A lot of my artistic impulses could be considered puerile. I’m driven by present circumstances first and foremost, but simple observations can fixate me for years.

Photography is my regular medium, but I also use video and alternative processes. The approach is always led by the subject matter. I do worry about the effectiveness of my pursuits in the age of mass communication, but I’m driven by a belief that it is important for artists and practitioners to reflect on the times they live in.
