Born in Glasgow I moved to Basel in 1999 and after ten years of cooking there I left the kitchen when my daughter was born.
This gave me the time to relight the fire of photography in my heart. I took an evening course and since then I have been working for my teacher and mentor, the Cuban photographer Ismael Lorenzo.
I’m a street photographer by nature I think as I have always found human beings to be the most fascinating subjects for me. I work as candidly as possible but also have regular contact with some of my subjects as I see them often around the streets and stations of Basel.
At the moment I am working on a series of street pictures called “Between The Cracks” featuring some of the street guys and gals I have gotten to know.
Working in a pro studio though has brought me a lot as a photographer too and I am working on a series of pictures called “Home” featuring people from all over the world and what Home means to them.
Many thanks to all at Groovefinder and may your groove sustain all that you are and can be!
