I initially moved to mirrorless around a year ago in order to find a camera system that was light weight and could be used in the city with minimal fuss; a system that left me a more nimble, responsive photographer. This is hardly a revelation and I am sure this is the exact reason a lot of photographers ditched their heavy dslr and lenses for a mirrorless set-up. For me, the switch to mirrorless ran parallel with my desire to create a new style of photography too.Read More
Glasgow in Bits is an on-going project where I document the often neglected aspects of architecture in and around Glasgow. Derelict buildings, small architectural details, textures, shapes, graffiti and Glasgow’s unloved back streets will all be included. The photographs will be varied in style and scope but will highlight the little details scattered around the city the come together to create the city as a whole.
I feel I am finally getting to grips with my transition from my Nikon d7100 to my mirrorless Fujifilm xt2 and decided to take a walk to the financial district in the city centre of Glasgow. There are some pretty modern buildings in this area, however, most are probably between twenty and thirty years old and there are no such things as a sky scraper (New York or London it is not!) but it is definitely checking out this area.Read More

Anyone who sees my work would surely know that I am a sucker for shapes and composition. Truth be told it is often the shapes with in image that attracts to taking the photo in the first place.Read More
Abstracts is small selection of my favourite imagery (mostly) taken during my walks around Glasgow in the last year. I hope the ebook highlights the inspiration I find in architecture, abstraction, geometry and minimalism. The ebook is gentle mix of all of these styles and may well help the reader discover the joys of this style of photography.

Chantal creates fabrics for soft furnishings and accessories and is inspired by nature and maths, especially geometry.Read More
