Formerly a professional soldier, Malcolm became a landscape photographer in 2002, with the publication of his book Wilderness Oman. Soon after, the Highlands and Islands of Scotland beckoned, resulting in two further books; The Outer Hebrides and Mull, Iona, Staffa. Other books and assignments followed, taking him to many parts of the world.
Working mainly in the twilight hour, he is most receptive to the fading light at dusk, which plays with the known and unknown. Or at dawn, when the landscape slowly reveals texture in rocks, trees, skies and water. The process of finding the vantage point, setting up, waiting for a moment of revelation in an instant, are the significant aspects, for him, of landscape photography.
Recent work has taken him to Namibia, with its eclectic mix of deserts, mountains, and coastline.
