"It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera ... they are made with the eye, heart and head."
Henri Cartier-Bresson.

I have loved black and white photography for as long as I can remember and studied photography and darkroom techniques in the Art Programme at the University of Anchorage in Alaska several years ago. Back home in the north east of Scotland and now almost exclusively using a digital camera, I also work with colour which I tend to use mostly for toning an image. The process I use has slowly evolved, my enthusiasm for the versatility of digital being solidly underpinned by the lessons learned from the wet darkroom. My creative approach to making a photograph, however, has never really changed. The pure enjoyment of taking photographs, being immersed in the moment, making a connection with what I am photographing, is fundamental to my work. To bring that insight into the final print, at the finest quality I can achieve, has always been my goal.
