A proud Scot born in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Alan has been fortunate enough to travel across the globe, capturing images of the natural & man made wonders which have inspired him along the way, & has produced his own art model folio, shot both in the studio & on location in the UK & Europe.

Being completely self taught, & with over 25 years experience in the field of photography, he brings a highly distinctive style to his images & constantly strives to devise fresh artistic concepts. Each one is shot with the simple aim of capturing & highlighting the unique qualities of its individual subject, & Alan's passion for painting with light, both natural & artificial, is the key to achieving this goal.

As for subject matter, be it a beautiful femme fatale, classical colonial architecture or the graceful lines of a World War II fighter aircraft, Alan's fascination with the artistic portrayal of timeless elegance is the driving force behind his photography.

This is not Alan's job, it's his passion. Let the images speak for themselves......

Alan's studio work is shot in one of forty five purpose built visual arts studios within the beautiful Briggait Centre, a Grade A listed building in Glasgow's Merchant City which is home to the WASPS artist's community.


WASPS  have a 34 year track record of supporting the arts community & have grown to become one of the UK’s largest studio providers, currently housing 750 visual artists & 22 arts charities at 19 sites from the Scottish Borders to the Shetland Islands.

The redevelopment of Glasgow’s historic fish market, 'The Briggait', into a creative arts centre, made the National Lottery finals & won the coveted ‘Special Award for Scotland’ from the UK-wide Civic Trust Awards.

For Alan, being part of this highly creative community provides the perfect environment in which to conceive & produce the sort of studio based fine art photography projects which appear on this website.
