''Beautiful writing & images''

David is a writer, photographer and photo-guide living and working in the Scottish Highlands.

I work on stories about: the outdoors, landscape, environment, conservation, people and place.

I've previously been a sound engineer and community musician, started a small refugee charity and fundraised for an environmental one. I picked up the rudiments of photography from my step-father and learnt how to sleep outside as a boy scout. I now live in the Cairngorm National Park with my young family and split my time between the personal, editorial & commissioned work you find referenced here.

For commission and photography talks, please contact me.

For photography guiding and teaching, please look at the workshops page.
