“You don’t take a photograph, you make it” (Ansel Adams).
For me, as a photographer, it is about knowing what the client wants. I aim to portray the significance of the event and let people relive those special moments.
Nothing gives me more satisfaction after a client giving me a brief than seeing the project come to fruition. I see it as a partnership between myself and the client.
There is a knack in capturing that fleeting moment of action in a sports event. After a lifetime of playing a variety of sports at a high level and also with experience of photographing Scottish Premiership football, I have a good knowledge of what makes that special image.
Whether a corporate event, charity day or just a fun day, I will be unobtrusive, but capture the event as you require.
Landscape photography is a passion of mine. I was recently commissioned to produce a series of photographs of iconic Scottish landmarks and beauty spots for a gift company to use on fridge magnets, calendars and postcards. Images can be supplied in a variety of formats. Just ask!
Born and bred in Edinburgh, my working career was spent running my own sales and marketing agency. In the course of my travels, my camera always went with me and along the way , I learned landscape photography.
I believe that you gain more from being self taught, than sitting in a classroom.
Since retiring from my day job, I decided to get into sports photography. . I was very fortunate to gain the opportunity to work with a Scottish Premiership football club. This, in turn, led to covering corporate events and headshot photography. We keep on learning!
I now have my dream job, combing my two loves, sport and photography.
