My first blog on WordPress

Hi, been meaning to do this for a while but never seemed to find the time. Well, in this new Covid-19 world of ours I’ve got all the time in the world now! I’ve been a photographer in Edinburgh since 1990, starting off as a freelance photographer for the Evening News and The Scotsman. Then I was a staffer for a local newspaper for a few years before going back to being a freelance, still working for the newspapers but steadily taking on more corporate jobs until concentrating fully on that sector in 1998.

I’ve been involved in photography since I left school in 1977 and started working as a darkroom technician at Turners photography in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Photography has given me everything over the years and my enthusiasm for the medium is still as strong as ever. I thought it would be nice to give something back. I’ll be posting photos with a little bit of info about them over the next few weeks and hope this can stimulate some conversation since, at the moment, there’s little else we can do.
