A creative raw showcase inspired by the Scottish Hebrides - of cold seas,  long horizons, weather & lonely skies


Blinks of sunshine.  Sunset nets, casting for silver shoals away & out on the water.  My heart & camera travelling with them, immersed in this running tide of cold Atlantic sea.  

My Daily Raw Swim gifts me for 20-30 mins each day of the year, without wetsuit or any gear, save that of my camera, into an incredible daily raw experience of light & tide.  It is every artist & photographer's dream.  The spirit of my journey - to capture a glimpse of the fleeting wild beauty of air, sea, wind & tide.  To hold it close.  To experience life in the Raw.  And to pass it on.  Welcome to The Raw Simple Life.
