Time Lasting Portrait Photography

Whether it’s the look of love, the coming together of generations, a time to celebrate or a simple case of recording the occasion, I would love to be your photographer and be able to capture those moments so you have something to look back on to remember the day.

Capturing your Moment in Time

I provide portrait photographs for individuals, couples and families in Glasgow or Loch Lomond. I do not use a studio for my portrait work but there are many beautiful outdoor settings in these areas of Scotland which I love to use as settings, and wherever possible, I aim to shoot in natural light as I believe this offers the best opportunity to capture the mood and the nature of the special occasion.

Although many of my portrait sessions are outdoors, I can also come to your home and take photographs of your family in their natural setting. Many parents find this to be more comfortable for their children. I am more than happy to meet the requests of of my customers, so no matter where you would prefer to be photographed, please let me know.

My fees are based upon the time I am with you and after a portrait session I will make the pictures available in an online gallery once the editing is finished. Once the online gallery goes live, I have a range of options where you can purchase prints, the digital files or frames.

Engagement & Pre-Wedding

Have you just got engaged..? Are you getting married soon..? Am I going to be your wedding photographer or is someone else going to capture your day…?

It doesnt matter who is going to be your wedding photographer as I would be more than happy to capture your engagement or pre-wedding pictures with a portrait session just for you.

Families & Special Occasions

Whether you are having a family celebration, a special event, a holiday in Scotland, a get-together or doing something that is completely unmissable, then why not let me capture the moment…?

I can meet you in Glasgow or Argyll to spend some time with you to capture those moments that will mean so much to you in years to come.  I can offer you several options, and with these you can chose to include files, prints or albums. Its up to you.

Portraits for all occasions

Engaging and natural portraits – and whether you are on your own, or there’s a few of you or whether its for business, I would be happy to spend some time with you to capture your moment in time. I shoot on location using the avaiable light, and maybe with the help of some additional light, to produce natural and creative portraits.
