Editorial portrait photographer

Keepin’ it relaxed! – I get a lot of assignments as an editorial portrait photographer here in Scotland, and last week I assembled in a folder the relaxed and honest portraits you see here, mostly shot on recent editorial portrait assignments for newspapers and magazine clients. I shoot a lot of work that I don’t […]

Portrait of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon

This past weekend I had a few moments in which to photograph a portrait of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. The shoot took place here in Glasgow, very locally which was nice.
