hello!

I am the keeper of treasured memories that belong to others.

Photography offers a unique, personal experience with a happy that lasts forever after. Specialising in equestrian & canine photography I create dramatic, printed photographic artworks which capture the expressions you know & love.

Most of the stuff you'll want to know is on this page, but do contact me if I've missed anything & thanks for coming for a rummage!

Photoshoots

Locational photoshoots are outdoors or under suitable cover with good incoming natural light. While I can bring lights, it requires a longer setup & an accessible power outlet. Alternatively you may have a favourite beach, woodland or park where your horse or dog will feel at ease & express their most natural character!

Editing

My black backgrounds create dramatic subject focus & are included as standard. Minor cosmetic edits are free, while bespoke work is priced on complexity & quoted in advance. Multiple subject compositions multiply edit time & are priced accordingly. I also edit your own images following a FREE copyright & quality check!

Quality

Irrespective of display dimension (from postcards to the side of a bus) - high resolution photography will always produce superior printed work. Colour fidelity, light, shadow & tonal depth is exceptionally important, so all sessions are captured in RAW format to preserve the maximum detail possible in every click I take.

Nitty Gritty

Professional editing offers virtually limitless possibilites, but it's not a "save all" or quick process & it's key to be realistic. Your vision may be your horse galloping across a sunlit silver beach - but if our location is a dark, muddy, pocket mugged paddock, we're going to need more than our wellies!

Prints

By using only Scotland's industry leading print lab I ensure a consistently high standard, backed by excellent customer support. Professional prints provide maximum lifespan for your photographs with a superior finish - available in a variety of laminates such as Gloss, Lustre, Metallic & Velvet, depending on your preference (& budget!)

Framing

Designed to compliment my synonymous style, mounting, backing & framing is available at point of order (ensuring no dust or fingerprints!). Please note framing is undertaken by artisan professionals & prices will vary depending on size & your chosen style. Mounting & framing is quoted prior to order with mockups available on request!

Digitals

Digital images are intended for social media use only. As low resolution files they will lack quality even if professionally printed. I no longer supply high resolution digital files due to copyright infringement & while reproduction rights are available, they are classed as commercial use & charged accordingly.

Gift Vouchers

Valid for six months from purchase date, my professionally printed vouchers provide a thoughtful & exceptionally flexible gift for any occasion. They can be redeemed against photoshoots, prints or framing & the value can be kept discreetly absent! Why not compliment yours with a bespoke greetings card too?

Copyright

Copyright is really very simple, I will always own the photographs I take - even if you pay for a photoshoot & all the subjects are yours. You are only purchasing permission to use those images within our agreed purpose - ie, personal sharing or hanging on your wall.

Very Naughty

Unless you purchase the sole rights to my photograph, you are forbidden to commercially distribute, repurpose or reproduce in part or full any element by any media whatsoever. Please visit CCA Non Commercial-NoDer4.0 International License to find out more.
