Announcing Dumfries Diaries Project - to soak in beautiful Dumfries views, capture images of wonderful people
encountered on the streets of Dumfries and to document vibrant art and community life in the area.

The project cross-references lifestyle, street and event photography but at the same time is casual in nature. Photographs are woven into narratives, and the resulting photo stories are displayed in a constantly updating Dumfries Diaries section on our blog.

Street comic performances, outdoor theatre medieval-style pageants and music festivals,  rides and fairs, art ventures, secret locations steeped in history, little clandestine discoveries as I move through Dumfries, my own neighbourhood and doonhamers' random activities are observed and interpreted through the lens.

I am looking forward to attending inspirational community events, meeting new exciting people (and their dogs - it seems everyone around here has one!)  and growing creatively as a photographer in the process.

Meanwhile, here's a quick gallery of excerpts from Dumfries Diaries.
