A short history about GallowayNightSky

In my early years growing up in Liverpool, I had the pleasure of knowing a very good friend, who was a freelance photographer.

His name was Arthur Flemming, he is no longer with us, but he give me the encouragement and drive, to follow my interest into film and television and music production.

After gaining a National Diploma in Media in Liverpool, and learning the skills which I now hold, and keep on learning, year by year, my knowledge and interest still grows.

I moved to Stranraer from Liverpool in 1996, with my wife, and children. My wife is from the town of Stranraer.

I fell in love with South West Scotland the very first time I drove up from Liverpool.

It was on an early January morning, the light had just broke on the A75, it was like finding a hidden place, no one know about, but me.

This is the place I now call my Home and the place I now work.

Like true love and many other of the best things in human life, the beauty of the night sky is not for sale, but is free for all to enjoy.
