PHOTOS, MOSTLY – A NewsLETTER
Photos, mostly is a regular publication of essays on the philosophy and practice of street photography. Regular extras include a digest of my writing on photography from elsewhere, some new photographs, the latest photography news, and advice to improve your photography out there on the street.
I’m a shy though loquacious, youthfully middle-aged, Scottish Varsovian street photographer. I teach photography, most recently at Akademickie Liceum Ogólnokształcące (PJATK) in Warsaw. I write about photography for Shoot It With Film, and occasionally on 35mmc.
Described by the British Academy of Photography as a prodigious talent, and by critics as a surrealist at heart with an eye for irony and amusing little moments, I spend my days walking the streets looking for the unexpected, as well as the unconventional, and the contradictory.
I have shown exhibitions in the 13th Note cafe, the National Scottish Football Museum – both in Glasgow – and in Ckio, near Warsaw, Poland.
My work has been published in the Glasgow Herald, The Sunday Mail, The Reykjavik Grapevine, the Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser, the Big Issue, The Skinny, The List, and on several record covers.
I am an alumnus of the Magnum Professional Practices series and have also completed masterclasses with Magnum photographers Richard Kalvar and Bruce Gilden, in Paris and London respectively.
I shoot with Kodak Tri-x 400 film on Leica iiif, M3, and M6 cameras, mostly.

If you like what you see, or would like to say hi, drop me an email. I’m open to creative collaborations both audible, and visual. Prints will be available sometime in the future, though for now if you’d like to buy or use something, feel free to ask.
