Hello!

If you have had a look through some of my photos you will notice this face popping up quite a lot…

This, my friends, is my partner in crime and boyfriend, James (also known as Jahmes). I am forever pestering him to get in front of the camera and show off that natural smoulder of his. He acts like he doesn’t love it but the pictures say otherwise..! We both crave spending time outdoors and getting out to the wilderness as much as we can, therefore most of my ‘adventures’ are spent with him by my side.

I’ll be using this title for when we find time to do something outdoorsy and fun where I can get lots of snaps (which can prove to be pretty hard sometimes in between work/uni/college/his crazy American football training timetable etc.) The dream is to one day get a van and convert it so we can boost off to wherever whenever we get the chance! Until then we do what we can with what we’ve got.

We are huge fans of water sports such as SUP boarding (big ups to Saltbyrona for introducing this to us and letting us borrow equipment), kayaking, diving and love a hiking trip - preferably a bit of camping in there too. Since we are in Scotland we have to be prepared for whatever the weatherman throws at us so some trips need a bit of planning ahead if its going to be chucking it down outside - luckily for us Scots we are well adapted for the weather changing last minute. It is currently winter so most days are quite driech and dull but here’s hoping for some of those crisp winter sun occasions, probably my favourite kind of weather to photograph in.

If you are wanting to start getting out and doing some water sports one of my fave companies for buying gear is Two Bare Feet, they sell quality stuff for amazing prices so its definitely worth a look if you’re interested. Click right to scroll through these pics…

Camping is up there on my top 10 favourite things to do and its a great excuse to get out and put my camera to work. James and I have lots of plans to get away up North on some adventures - I will post all about and keep my blog updated on wherever we go and what we do.

Here are some pictures from when we went to Glen Coe in Summer. Keep in mind these are relatively old pictures but thought they would be well suited for my first post :)
