About - Backabit

Welcome to backbit

I am Steve , a  photographer based in South West Scotland.  I have a Licentiateship in the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society ...which goes some way to explain my interest in Travel Photography. 

You will find me on Purpleport as Stiobhan - the Gaelic version of my name 

Why backabit? Well in my portraiture I seem to be saying that all the time .

I'm based in Scotland, but my photography reflects images from all over the world.

There are three key themes here :-


Art, including landscapes, and abstracts


My journey to here started when I first picked up a camera ,oh so many years ago, discovering that there was a new way of being creative, since then I have seen things differently .


I believe in making my  photography accessible so my prices for portraits will not be highest you see and I'd prefer my art to be on on your walls not in my galleries . I do what I do for art, not as a career.
