Davie Hudson is from Dundee, Scotland and likes to describe himself as an Organic Photographer, as his photography is very mood-driven which often results in the images having a darkness that may feel a little uneasy. He doesn’t always go for the perfect shot but rather the shot that evokes the most emotion from both himself and his clients. He finds the more of himself and his feelings that goes into an image the better it is received. He has a fascination with the united persistence of water and therefore it plays a big part in his work. Davie is currently head of The Society of Scottish Landscape Photographers.
