The Quiraing

Description: The Quiraing

 ‘Although I have travelled the world, Trotternish is without doubt my favourite location. This shot was taken as a hailstorm moved off south-east towards the mainland revealing a dappled sunlit scene. If my ashes are going to be scattered when I kick the bucket, then this is the location.’

Dead tree / sunrise

Description: Dead tree / sunrise

 ‘This panoramic shot in colour was taken at dawn a few years back. Unfortunately, the tree was a casualty of a bad storm we had in 2010, so this view is no longer available.’

Sunbeam / south uist

 ‘I love the wst coast of Scotland due to the quality of light found there. This shot was taken looking out to the Hebrides from Skye. The light was beautiful as it danced between cloudbursts. I made loads of photos, but this is one of my favourite, possibly due to the wee stream of clouds to the fore.’

Dusk / Ben Lomond

 ‘When my uncle took me for trips, we ate at various hotels, and the classic paintings displayed showed mountains and glens bathed in beautiful light. The pastel colours in this image immediately reminded me of those paintings.’

Mount Whitney and Arch

Description: Mount Whitney and Arch

 ‘Mount Whitney viewed through the Mobius Arch. This was taken a few years back as I was finishing off the Spirit project. I like the cleanness of the light and the smooth deep blue sky against the graininess of the rocks.’

Dawn / Lochan na H’Achlaise

Description: Dawn / Lochan na H’Achlaise

 ‘One of my most popular shots is probably my shot a dawn at Lochan na h’Achlaise. It’s particularly poignant because the tree on the islet was snapped in two in a storm last year so it will never look like that again.’

The river coupall

Description: The river coupall

 ‘I trend towards interpreting often-shot locations with a different perspective, but sometimes you just can’t help but reinterpret a classic. This was the case here.’

What’s in your kit bag?

JM: I shoot both 35mm digital and medium format digital. The medium format kit I mostly use is a Hasselblad H4D-50 with 35-90 zoom lens. When shooting 35mm digital, I mix my choice of lenses up a bit, I have lots of old Zeiss, Olympus, and Pentacon manual focus lenses that I use with the aid of adapters. These lenses give you a different look from modern Japanese lenses. I’ll always take a map and compass

Do you have any current projects you’re working on or projects lined up for the future?

JM: As well as my usual commitments, I’m working on two new book projects for release later this year, one landscape, and one portrait. The revised eBook version of Spirit was also release recently. It is compatible with iPad, iPhone and Android, and is still helping raise money for charity. I am also in the process of organising an exhibition of my work.
