Welcome to Mountain Photography a virtual gallery for my mountain images. I have been photographing in the mountains now for over 30 years. I started off walking in the Scottish hills and graduated to mountaineering in the French Alps. I expeditioned to Kenya, Nepal and the Karakoram. That was back in the 1980s. Since then I have continued to go ski mountaineering and get off into the hills with occasional ice climbing and rock climbing trips. But always with a camera. And with time the cameras got bigger and bigger. Eventually I took a large format Toyo Field camera with me. The image quality improved as the seriousness of the mountaineering diminished. I have always had an obsession with image quality. In the mountains I mainly shoot in black and white. Whereas for documentary work I tend to shoot in colour. More recently I have worked in digital. Currently my tool of choice is the Nikon D800. A follow on from the seminal D700. There is much discussion about my days in the hills with my cameras in my blog. I do however prefer to take images rather than write about it!!! So what you'll find are the images and the occasional commentary, when I get passionate about things.
Through time nevertheless my photography has evolved. It is important to me that my imagery has a strong narrative, both in the mountains and when I am at a major event. I carry a camera wherever I go, whether abroad on assignment in Bangladesh, or Nigeria, or closer to home at the Glastonbury festival.
