Here you can find links to my favourite software producers, websites for digital photography and Scotland plus our book publisher.
I use StockboxPhoto to power my image galleries and for e-commerce. The software has many configuration options and can be fully customised to match an existing website. Most importantly, clients find the site quick and very easy to use.
IMatch – A Digital Asset Management program. I use this software to catalogue and keyword my images. I can quickly find any image required for editing in Photoshop, writing to a CD or sending to a client.
DxO Optics Pro – DxO Optics Pro is my preferred software for the processing of RAW files.
Photoshop – The benchmark for digital manipulation – the digital darkroom.

“The Caledonian Kitchen is a collection of recipes from around Scotland to help raise funds for Action Duchenne, the UK charity working towards finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.”
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a heartbreaking disease. Children begin to see their muscles waste away and families struggle to cope with the diagnosis and day to day management of this condition. Young men die early in late teens or are left wheelchair bound and unable to move unaided. The hope for families lies in new treatments that can slow or stop DMD in its tracks.
Please, please, take a look at the Caledonian Kitchen recipe book – they make ideal gifts, so why not buy one for family or friends and help raise funds. Thank you.
UPDATE: Now only available from Amazon as far as I can tell.
Lowepro camera bags – I own 6 Lowepro bags including 3 of their excellent rucksacks. Why the link? Well, the zip on my 3 year-old Lowepro Nature Trekker AWII had weakened and was in danger of breaking. After sending an email to Lowepro and returning the rucksack, I soon took delivery of a brand-new replacement bag. No charge, no hassle. Now that is what I call fantastic service!! Thank you Lowepro.Leave a comment » »
