me

Keith is a professional outdoor photographer, specialising in landscape and heritage photography.

After 17 years on the edge of England's Lake District, Keith located to the Scottish Highlands. Living 800 feet up just above Loch Ness and with seven Lochans (small lakes) within strolling distance of the back door photo opportunities are available every day. All of the North West Highlands most spectacular locations are within easy travelling distance of Keith's lenses. Scotland's most beautiful glen; Glen Affric is just 10 miles away. Loch Ness is at the bottom of the hill. The spectacular Torridon mountains, Skye, Ben Nevis and Fort William, Ullapool and the hills of the far North West's Assynt are all within reach of a day trip

But the Lake District remains the heart of Keith's extensive library with all parts of the National Park covered throughout the seasons. His Lake District work is complemented by an extensive portfolio of the nearby Yorkshire Dales taken whilst writing his "Boot up" series of walking guides and "The Yorkshire Dales in Winter" book.

His work is regularly published in both local and national publications, several calendars annually and commercial applications.

He has had nine books of illustrated walks published in Halsgrove's "Boot up" series of "leisure walks of discovery". Five titles covering walks in the Lake District and a further four titles covering the Yorkshire Dales. Additionally a richly illustrated desk diary of the Lake District using 50 of Keith's most popular images is available. October 2010 saw his first coffee table style book published "The Yorkshire Dales in Winter" with 140 images of the Yorkshire Dales taken during the coldest winter for 30 years- plenty of snow and ice.

Keith's prints and cards will be available at a variety of Craft Fairs in the Scottish Highlands throughout 2017.

Equipment

Having toyed with Canon’s 20D and 40D series, Keith now uses the 21 Mega Pixel full frame Canon 5D Mark II with a range of Canon’s L-series professional lenses for most of his work.

Where light weight equipment is a premium Keith recently invested in Fuji's new XT-2 camera and lenses, which is producing exceptional results already.

Previously most work was produced using medium format cameras and Fuji Velvia film. Where light weight was a premium Keith used his trusty Mamiya 645 Pro TL outfit with a range of lenses from wide angle to short telephoto. If weight is less of an issue the Pentax 67II outfit comes into its own with a similar range of prime lenses.
