Going Within

I ditched my camera for a few weeks. I was (and am) so emotionally exhausted with taking images and wanting approval and validation for the results. I love photography and it’s been genuinely heartbreaking to me that I can’t make some level of living from doing it. I’ve accepted that now. Virtually no one IContinue reading “Going Within”

Rainbows and mudslides: January 2021

Scotland’s weather is never predictable, especially once you reach the Highlands. It was one of the first things I marveled at last year after moving here – one minute the sky can be black and the heavens are throwing what seems like all of the year’s annual rainfall at the Scottish earth, and in theContinue reading “Rainbows and mudslides: January 2021”

Frozen: December 2020

With temperatures dropping to 0C here in the Highlands and snow resting on the mountains the landscape is looking even more dramatic than it usually does. Which is saying something.

It was a lovely sunny day when we set off, and yet in the space of three hours it rained, hailed, and eventually snowed on me.Continue reading “Snowdon: September 2019”

Budapest: January 2019

We took a short break to Budapest, as it is a city I have wanted to visit for a very long time. Obviously, my camera came with me.

Chasing light: September/October 2018

At the end of September I started a Masters course in Biological Photography and Imaging.
