Picking up a camera as a teenager I was drawn towards documentary work. This led to a degree in photography but after number of projects I realised this wasn’t the life for me. I continue to shoot commercially for clients and landscapes for myself, while more recently a drone has allowed me to explore Scotland from above.

In the mid ’90s I stumbled across the internet and landed job in a start-up web agency, designing and building sites for (whisky) brands who saw the potential of the new medium.

The company grew rapidly, it was exciting and stressful, I learnt a lot. After 5 years of agency life I took a break, turning freelance in 2002 and then setting up Control X Digital Ltd in 2010 with the aim of providing agency quality work for SMEs without the overheads of a conventional agency.

Beyond photography my interests are cycling, walking, music, films, sustainability and the environment. During the lockdowns I started painting and drawing again.
