Mainly captured on foot, but I have been known to use the bike, car and sometimes the bus.

Edinburgh is a beautiful city with a lot to offer photographers. From the iconic castle to the winding streets of the Old Town, there are endless opportunities to capture stunning images.

The capital city of Scotland is a vibrant and inviting place to photograph, especially the city's Old Town, New Town and not forgetting the out-of-town areas too. I have created a dedicated photo collection, areas and districts covered may include the greater Edinburgh area too. Images are on sale and available to purchase today.

Image collection: Situated in the South East of Scotland, Edinburgh is located on the coastline of the Firth of Forth with stunning views from many of the lofty locations surrounding the city’s landscape scenery. Set amidst several hills, vantage points will be enjoyed from Arthur’s Seat, Calton Hill, Corstorphine Hill, Craiglockhart Hill, Blackford Hill and the Braid Hills.
