Being from Texas, Scotland is something of an alien landscape to me. I am fascinated by Scotland's western coast. There is a certain austere beauty about how the mountains meet the sea, and the bleak and windswept highlands. Places like the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye or the Church of the Holy Rude in Stirling conjure up a sense of mystery and even danger, and feel so evocative of Scotland's unique history. Through my photographs I hope that I capture a bit of the mood that seems to envelop such beautiful places.
University of Glasgow
Glasgow and the West End are amazing subjects as well. I have really enjoyed watching how the city's color palette has changed over the seasons, from the vibrant green and yellow of summer, to the warm red and orange of autumn, to the grey, blue, and purple of winter. Everywhere I walk I always find something new and different that I want to capture through the lens.
I use a mixture of film and digital equipment. When the light is good and conditions just right, film is still unbeatable. But digital is so freeing, because you have the freedom to take as many shots as you want. I am working on a "time lapse" project about Glasgow right now, and it simply would not be possible without using a digital workflow.
