I am available for inspirational speaking, leading/co-leading complimentary retreats and a landscape photography workshop leader.

My own story of how I overcame loss and chronic illness to living a healthy fulfilled life doing the work I love is a natural narrative that can inspire those feeling lost or stuck.

I can speak on this and related topics and themes, tailoring it to your audience and what it needs or wants to hear. The talks can be in the round or presentation style, illustrated by my landscape photography, time-lapse movies and films.



I started my photographic career 15 years ago and am best known for capturing the essence of wild, remote places such as the Outer Hebrides and Loch Ness.  Eight years ago, I transformed my life after years of suppressing what I really love – landscape photography.

I travel continuously through the Highlands, the Scottish Islands and beyond, weaving a love of remote and wild landscapes into my photography business. Much of my time is spent in places that make me feel alive and happy.

I like quiet places, solo travel, wild swimming, surfing, SUP and mindfulness through nature. I believe in following your dreams love to help inspire others to find and follow their passions.
