Being a photographer is a pretty awesome job (with it's moments of course) and I'm lucky enough to be a full time photographer and I really love the kinds of photography I do. Whether it be photographing a wedding, photographing (and getting the occasional sneaky drive) in a Land Rover or Jaguar, or even photographing a hotel in one of the many awesome hotels in Scotland, my job is really cool.
My wedding style is informal, candid, beautiful and a little bit fun. I worked for big corporations in various capacities for many years and decided if I were to work for myself one day I would want to have a lot of fun with couples. Essentially treat people like how I want to be treated. So my wedding and general work style is informal, my personality is daft but I'm completely professional and supply images that people will look at in 15-20 years time and both smile and laugh at. That's why people hire me and that's what I'm very good at.
Throughout this page you'll come across a couple links for where you can keep up to date with me. I'm sometimes a little slow updating this website but I update my blog whenever I can and the same goes for Facebook.
During my few years as a professional wedding photographer, and this is another reason I love my job, I've worked with couples from all over the world including the UK (duh!), USA, Australia, Germany, Canada and even China. Two very unique things we can offer are a full Chinese language service. My Chinese is patchy but my wife, who is also a photographer and illustrator, speaks fluent Mandarin and we've worked together so many times that the translation from Chinese to English is seemless. The other wedding service we offer is working as witnesses. I've photographed countless weddings at Lothian Chambers and have been asked on many occasions to act as a witness. This is no problem but we do need a little notice to arrange childcare for our young daughter.
If you'd like to get in touch I can be contacted either through the contact form on my website, via phone: 07557 732773 or even better by email:
I tend to be out travelling around with my work a lot so if you do try to call and don't get through please leave a message and I'll come back to you as soon as possible.
