"I work as an HCA Mental Health (Hospital-based). Photography is my escape from a stressful job, but not a job I will ever choose to leave. I'm blessed to live in a beautiful part of the world and one I love to share through my photography, even if that is far from perfect. I'm quite new to photography and only just past the point and shoot stage, but I shoot to my taste and I'm happy with that."
How did you get into photography?
"I would say I started fully getting into photography when I relocated to The West Coast of Scotland in 2017. I already had a passion for the great outdoors, so combining my outdoor activities with photography seemed a natural progression."
