|I began my career in newspaper photography in 1973 with my first ever publication in the Barrhead Pictorial. The picture was of a fire in Gladstone Avenue for whichd I received the handsome cheque of 'One Pound'!|
Undeterred by this meagre payment I submitted a picture to the Barrhead News and met the editor Alice Craig who subsequently encouraged me to become a full time freelance for the newspaper.
I went on to contribute to other publications including the South Side News, the Mercury, Renfrewshire Gazette, Govan Press, Flourish and the Gryffe Weekly News.
I was subsequently offered daily assignments with The Scotsman and the newly launched Scotland on Sunday before accepting a staff position with the group in Glasgow in 1989.
Now retired, I'm busy scanning the negatives from the vast archives of historic photographs and publishing them on this web site.
If you think I was the photographer at your event or first day at school etc. and you have lost or require a digital image or print, please feel free to enquire about the availability of a scan from an original negative by using this
