I am a professional photographer based in the Scottish Borders.
The world around us is a fascinating place and I photograph all aspects of it. No subject is off limits, from wild hills and mountains to city streets and smoking factories, I love to photograph them all.
I also perform classical music professionally. I have played my clarinet in the major cities of five continents and performed at thirty consecutive seasons of BBC Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
My photographs are represented by Getty Images and SuperStock USA and can be regularly seen in publications ranging from The Jewish Chronicle to Time Magazine.
