St Andrews Photos

Yesterday I had the chance to meet Chris Davy, a graduate of St Andrews and the photographer behind the St Andrews Photos website, which contains a collection of some of the most beautiful photographs of St Andrews that I’ve ever seen.

Chris’s images feel crisp, intimate and involved. As we discussed his photographs I realised that unlike a lot of images that I’ve seen of places Chris’s photos feel authentic, as though he has really engaged with the town; he hasn’t been afraid to get involved — up close and personal — with his subject. The model that I had was like the difference between someone who passes through the town and takes tourist-y photographs of the place and someone who embeds themselves in the place, rather like a wildlife photographer camps out in a hide, and waits for the right moment.

I urge you to take a look at the St Andrews Photos website and see for yourself this most beautiful place in which I have the privilege of working.
