Photography at the Glasgow College of Building & Printing for two years leaving with
an I.I.P.Diploma in Professional Photography. For the next 7 years I worked as a
Photographer for Glasgow Education Department. I then was the in-house Photographer for
the National Physical Laboratory in London & the National Engineering Laboratory in
In 1993 I decided to work for myself & traded as Alba
Photographics providing Industrial, Commercial.& Architectural Photographic services.
(Corporate clients have included Amoco, BP, Ford, London Water Authority, National
Oilwell, Scottish Homes, to name but a few). About the same time I began to take an
interest in Panoramic Photography, especially landscapes. I now find that most of my work
is taken up by Panoramic Landscaps of Scotland.
Using a variety of Panoramic Cameras I am endeavouring to
capture the many magnificent views that Scotlands landscapes provide... its many
moods, sometimes turbulent, sometimes calm, its mountains, its lochs, its valleys, its
castles. Always beautiful!
Panoramic cameras capture the world as our own eyes see it
--- notice how televisions are moving towards the wide-screen format? In the case of my
Alpa-Roto camera only by moving your head from side to side could you simulate its view of
a landscape. The majority of my pictures are taken on a Fuji 6x17. A camera favoured by
many of the worlds top panoramic photographers.
I undertake special commercial commission work for small
businesses and large corporations. For example I have undertaken to handle special
work for Falirk Today's customers who require photographs for their web adverts: This
includes Travel to Factory/office/outlet and production of two glossy 8x8 inch
Professional Photographs to give high quality reproduction or scanning for the Web.
