Roundup of 2016

Its that time of year again , time to look back , assess, make plans , set intention for a new year. I actually enjoy the process of looking back , but of the top of my head I was struggling to think if I had taken any images that I was happy with till […]

Workshop in Adventure Photography

I had the pleasure of running the first Adventure Photography workshop at Glenmore Lodge at the end of Oct. This was something that myself and the team at the Lodge had talked about over 4 years ago and its taken a while to actually get around to organising it. I was really pleased that it […]

New Zealand travels 1

New Zealand has been a dream for me for many years , shortly after graduating from Glasgow my intention had been to move to NZ but for various reasons its taken me 30 years to finally get here. The flights and timezone travels are a bummer and it took me 5 days to get into […]

Naomi Buys

2015 round up

Well, here we are , the beginning of a New year , a time to look back and look forward. Normally a year whizzes by for me , but 2015 lasted a lifetime and was certainly an intense time and not one I’d want to revisit again any time soon. But apart from personal stuff […]

Death, Surrender, Emergence.

Naked Mountain

Last moth I was doing a shoot on Skye with the very talented Ayla Rose , a model from Suffolk whose work I had seen and thought she would be perfect for the sort of images I had in mind. I guess the idea for the shoot came a bit from a series called Stone […]
