I graduated from the Fine Art Photography (BA Hons) course at the Glasgow School of Art in the year 2001 and have been working hard to establish myself as a respected professional photographer and fine artist ever since. I specialise in long-exposure photography (the art of ‘Light Painting’) as well as macro photography (my ‘Little People’ series).
I regularly work with well established brands and businesses (e.g. SONY, BBDO Group, Entertainment Weekly, Qualcomm) providing bespoke photography work for ad campaigns and re-branding projects. I am well versed when it comes to delivering creative photography work for both small and larger businesses so please feel free to contact me should you be interested in working together on a project.
What makes these images so special is that they are all created using a very long exposure time and are created at night when it is very dark. The nature of the long exposure allows me time to walk into the shot while it is being photographed. I then move around portable light devices to create the colours and shapes that you see ‘frozen’ into each image. So long as I keep moving around during each long exposure and avoid illuminating myself, I remain completely invisible in the photograph.
The Little People
Have you met the ‘Little People’ yet? These tiny figurines have travelled the globe more extensively than I have as they continue to make it into publications all over the world. Each figure stands at only 2cm tall meaning that creating this work is a rather delicate (yet incredibly rewarding) process.
Light Painting Workshops
I also teach regular Light Painting workshops. If you are interested in finding out more about this amazing technique please get in touch. My ‘Portfolio’ page contains some examples of the kinds of work that you will be able to make during my workshops.
LP is a photographic technique that involves portable light sources coupled with very long exposure times that are captured at night. During each long exposure, the photographer enters the space being photographed and moves around the hand-held light sources. Because it is dark, the light ‘freezes’ inside the image allowing the photographer to create light sculptures that appear to float within the landscape. I can assure you, if you have never been light painting before prepare to have your mind blown! I teach regular group sessions as well as tailored 1:1 sessions if you would prefer more private tuition.
