Martin Gemmell Photography | About
From Pastime to Obsession

Photography to me is about the capture and preservation of 'moments in time'. They are personal and serve to remind me of special circumstances like a place visited, a special occasion, particular weather conditions or a challenge met. In short they are memories. A historic record of life as it happens and a roadmap of the changing spheres of interest as life progresses.
As you will see from viewing the galleries of this site, I have particular interest in wildlife and steam railways and much of my spare time is spent travelling in the pursuit of these interests. The only comfort zone I know is when engaged in photography.
I have many 'still to do' projects that hopefully I will achieve. I live in Troon, Scotland, and despite having lived here most of my life, I have recorded very little of my local area. I aim to spend more time on Landscape and Seascape work too.
