I am a professional photographer from the north of Scotland. I have a long history with Nikon digital and film cameras including the Kodak hybrids of the early very 1990s (when the studio I worked in spent the price of a house on a camera with 3MP....) I also have 5x4 and medium format film and digital experience.


I currently use a D7100, D700, D3s

I also use a Nikkor 18-300 f3.5-5.6, 85mm f1.8, 50mm f1.4, Tokina 12-24 f4 regularly. Theres an 80-200 f2.8 lurking about somewhere too.


I use Mac computers, and Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and have done since the early 90s again (well not Lightroom, that came later).


I was a commercial photographer, then a lecturer at uni, then a photojournalist, then I move i editorial as a Picture Editor and then Deputy Editor. Then I decided I hated commuting and went freelance again. Then I did some weddings and portraits because news is depressing or full of plastic starlets with limited personality (oh, sorry, ranting....lol)


Now I work as the manager of a Art Gallery and part time professional freelance photographer doing what I fancy and enjoy. Best of both worlds and I get to look at great art, all day.


I live in Scotland, with my dog, and enjoy hiking and camping. I am currently building my online presence again with my own website and Facebook page.

Welcome, post some pic's when you have the time.

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.
