I had always liked to draw and shot a number of short video dramas as a teenager with camera and editing equipment that my dad had available at his school.
Later on I did an HND in Video which included photography and a BA in Film and Photography. However it was not until I moved back to Glasgow from London in 2007 that I actively started taking photographs in and around the city. The move had been quite a tough one and it seems I found the process of taking photographs again a cathartic one, I clearly needed to find a way of expressing myself. Getting good feedback on websites like Flickr also encouraged me to continue and develop my interest and style, which is highly influenced by photographers such as Bill Brandt and Brassai as well as film noir and German expressionist films.
