I moved to London in 1991 to complete MA in Textiles at Central St Martins. After 4 years in Galashiels, a small town in the Scottish borders where I did my BA , London was a bit of shock, but also an exciting change.
At college I used photography to develop design ideas. Starting with a film Minolta SLR and developing my own B&W prints. The skills learned at design college are very useful for photography – composition, how to handle colour, texture, contrast.
Things have changed a bit since then, I’m now set up with Nikon D800, Fujifilm X-T20, iMac, Lightroom, and Photoshop.
After college, the bright lights of London kept me here. Fast forward 20 years I run a company called Dimensions Displays. We make portable exhibition stands for marketing and events. This is my main source of income.
My photography is an outlet for my creativity. I love strong colours and patterns. I’m using these images to develop surface designs. This is reflected in the creative photography that I’m now concentrating on.
