I approach portraiture and landscape in a similar way. I want to make a connection with both, my landscape photography could be called a portrait of a landscape. I pay equal respect to the landscape as I would to a person, get to know your subject and you’ll be rewarded, it’ll open up to you…
I met James when I popped into his gallery & studio in Rhue. We chatted, I was inspired and I had to grab a portrait , so drove him out to Knockan Cragg, Assynt.
“I love the power the sea has over me; it completely takes me away, leaving me lost but found, grounded yet swept off my feet”.
Sandy and Sean, father and son at the Helm for a boat trip to Loch Coruisk. I have to say that I’ve traveled from the most southerly to the most northerly points of the UK and what I saw today at Loch Coruisk, looking over at the Cuillins and watching the loch pour into the sea left me absolutely speechless. It really was overwhelming, dramatic, pure, peaceful.
