My Story

I have been a photographer since I was 20, landing a photography assistant role with an architectural and interior photographer, Mandy Reynolds back in 1999. We traveled throughout the UK working on Millennial projects  with BuroHappold Engineering. This included the Millennium Dome, and The British Museum which we frequented monthly with a 4x5 camera, medium format Hasselblad and a 35 mm SLR. All film and filters in those days!

Since then, I have lived and worked in New York as a photographer within a product photography studio creating catalogues for Waterford Crystal. In Los Angeles, with Getty Images specialising in product placement events for brands such as Moet and Hennessy, Gibson Guitar Lounge,Sundance Film Festival and styling suites for the Oscars and The Grammy's.


In 2009, I returned to Scotland to take up a role as Senior Photographer within Amazon's first Uk merchandise photography studio.


For the last 9 years, I have been a Freelance Commercial Photographer, working with clients in the creative industries, 

mainly photographing merchandise, jewellery and interiors. Other roles include producing stills photoshoots, from concept to delivery.

In my own time, I love traveling and capturing unexpected moments of people and places, and renovating houses.
