About the Artist
Born in Dundee and a qualified Architect for the past forty years, twenty five years of which I have lived and worked in France. During my architectural career I had to work at integrating my buildings into existing environments and landscapes. I will be retiring this year and as a pastime for my upcoming retirement, I decided to use my passion for photography to produce images of landscapes and how classic buildings integrate into their surroundings, in the style of the great landscape painters. I am also passionate about outstanding natural landscapes and often drive by a scene saying I must come back and photograph this – sometimes I drive by for years before I actually get down to capturing the image, sometimes it happens in a flash if the inspiration is there.
