Tradition vs technology: the power of photographic prints

Photography wall art by Graphistudio.

When it comes to photographic prints, I would describe myself as fairly old school. This is the guy that made t-shirts from his favourite old club flyers, after all.

Opening the Dundee photography studio

It’s three years now since I set up the Dundee photography studio. That journey has taught me some valuable – and sometimes painful – life lessons.

This gorgeous pair Amanda & Iain had a wonderful wedding at Fingask Castle, a beautiful venue halfway between Perth and Dundee. As always, I like to get to know the couple – and let them get to know me – and the best way to do this is with a quirky wee pre-wedding photo shoot. […]

Andrea & Jamie, a cracking couple, who chose to have their wedding at Turin Castle, just outside Forfar, after they tied the knot at the Lowson Church in Forfar. First of all, we rocked up to Andrea’s family farm for a very unusual pre-wedding shoot. I love a pre-wedding shoot! It was amazing to be […]
