I am an avid freelance photographer living in the Texas Hill Country between Austin and Dripping Springs. After 20 years of 35mm editorial and art photography, I transitioned away from film in 2004 and began investigating new imaging techniques made possible by a fully digital workflow. Many of these techniques employ the blending of multiple exposures to render a single image which would be impossible to create using conventional, single-exposure methods. A large percentage of my recent images have been created using High Dynamic Range processing and are derived from between 3 and 11 different original exposures. This form of processing allows deep shadow and bright highlight detail to be captured and also accentuates texture, detail and the play of light over the subject resulting in an appealing yet intangibly different atmosphere to the work.
I am a native of Scotland and find myself drawn to subjects, scenes, locations and objects which symbolize Texas, the American Southwest and the United States in general. I am also a host on the PhotoNetCast podcast and a guest editor on HDRSpotting.
In addition to having exhibited in various juried shows and solo exhibitions, my work is on display at Austin Bergstrom International Airport and I am a featured photographer on Imagenomic’s (the makers of NoisewarePro) and HDRSoft’s (the makers of Photomatix) web sites. I teach workshops on High Dynamic Range photography at Precision Camera, Austin’s professional photography store.

From time to time, I will endorse a product on this site or on my blog. I will only ever do this when I make extensive use of the product, love it and reckon that readers may also like to know about it. I will absolutely never promote a product that I do not use and which I am not completely delighted with. In the case of some of these products, notably Photomatix Pro from HDRSoft and Noiseware Pro from Imagenomic, I offer a discount code which readers may use to receive 15% off the published price of those tools. In these cases, I receive a commission on any sales made with that discount code. In both these cases, however, I was a delighted customer and user of the tool before approaching the publisher to inquire about the possibility of offering a discount. My endorsement of these products has nothing to do with my marketing affiliation which I consider icing on the cake in a win-win-win situation (you get a discount, the publisher gets a sale and I get a commission).
