My Bio
I'm a young cub from Northern Ireland, currently studying Environmental Science & Outdoor Education at the University of Stirling in Scotland.

I like to explore somewhere I haven't been to before, normally it's within a few miles of my house and there are so many new places to see in Scotland...the majestic mountains and wilderness. I always take my camera with me when I'm out exploring and it's when I take most of my photographs. So yeah I try to photograph anything that has an effect on me, even for the slightest moment. Also looking out for wildlife, especially deer and foxes :)

Okay then.

Greetings deviants! Not sure if any of my old dA friends are still on here, or who reads these things now but I'm just letting you know I will be away for quite a while. I am travelling to Chile on Wednesday and will be spending the next few months tramping around South America and after that, who knows?  I will start off in Chilean Patagonia, near Torres del Paine and will do some adventuring with my friend Will Copestake who has been working out there as a Kayak guide. We also plan on cycling through the desert to reach the famous salt lakes of Bolivia.  After that I will be on my own and have no set plan,

Hello hello my dearest watchers, old and new.  If I haven't thanked you for watching, I will do so personally very soon, and as always thank you for supporting my work over the years :love: I don't spend so long online these days and I go through my inbox in batches, so if you've left comments, I'll hopefully get back to you soon...I've got 12,463 messages mind you! There are still plenty of photographs on my computer to go through and I have become less systematic in my editing order but I still enjoy it and I think my process is becoming more refined all the time. I still have problems with overall lightness of images because of the positi

So it's January 2012, I'm back in Scotland at university, but classes don't start until Februrary 14th, isn't it wonderful?  Ireland was okay, I tried out surfing for the first time but I almost got hypothermia; perhaps December 30th isn't the best time to go into the sea only in a summer wetsuit. I'm due
