I am a professional still life photographer from Edinburgh, having just completed a BA in Professional photography with Gray"s School of Art. Through continuous study for the past four years I have developed a keen interest in contemporary advertising and this genre has heavily influenced my style. I tend to lean towards still life as I feel I can convey my desired message through objects.
My path in the creative industry has been slightly unconventional in that I spent 16 years in The Parachute Regiment. Most would consider this a very uncreative career, but after a couple of years reflection on what I achieved, it was quite the contrary. Many times I was placed under pressure to come up with a solution to a problem. I thrived in these situations and I believe this is why I found myself enjoying the challenge of coming up with something from nothing. I attribute my drive, professionalism and attention to detail through my experience in the military, which has resulted in Scottish and UK wide recognition for my work.
