Latest Paintings

Latest paintings:

 These two paintings are the third and fourth in a series called 'Elemental'. I have restricted the palette to the three main primary colours (red, yellow and blue) plus black and white as well as using some collage.


My aim was to explore successive layers of paint and paper, building and dismantling over time, in a mostly random way much like what would happen if the canvas was exposed to the elements..... - See more at:

80's Rock and Pop Photos

Peter hitch-hiking in Italy in the late 1970s
My journey into adulthood took me to the Glasgow School of Art where I studied Fine Art and Mixed Media. I was disillusioned there by the pervading apathy among the students. After leaving Art School, my life journey took me into a career as a photographer.  In the early 1980's I set-up my first professional studio in Glasgow and quickly progressed from general photography to working mainly with the pop/rock culture in the UK and with the mainstream London-based music tabloids; Sounds, Melody Maker, Smash Hits and Noise, etc., often covering their main feature for the front and centre pages.

Altogether, I worked with over five-hundred different bands including some famous bands like; Spandau Ballet, U2, Simple Minds, Haircut 100, The Bluebells, Altered Images, Culture Club, Toyah, UB40, Marillion, The Clash, The Jam and many Indie and Punk bands like, The Fall, The Exploited, Blancmange, The Anti-Nowhere League, The Birthday Party, The Associates  to name a few. The Arts Council exhibited my work throughout the UK under the title of, 'Scotland's Top Rock and Pop Photographer'.
