These images are from a photoshoot for Ben Glencross who teaches mountain biking skills to novices. I had to laugh when Ben thought I would be biking AND taking pictures…….Having Edinburgh Rat Raced with him a few times now, he of all people knows that my mountain bike skills are lamentable. I preferred to keep my cameras (and myself for that matter)  in one piece!!!……..
Edinburgh-based oil company Cairn Energy sent me to Greenland during the summer of 2010 to capture images of its thrilling oil exploration programme. Cairn Energy is the first company for a decade to drill for oil offshore in the iceberg-infested waters………

Another fun photoshoot hyping up children………As if they weren’t already wiped out after thrashing rival Edinburgh schools rugby teams I was soon putting them through their paces to capture some unique images of their schooldays.
