Commercial Photography

Providing professional photography to professional people in Business and Industry in Glasgow and across Scotland.

What I do

I am a creative and experienced commercial photographer in Glasgow, providing Industrial, Corporate, Product, PR and Architectural Photography across Scotland.

And with a focus on timely and creative images, provides professional images to professional people in Glasgow, Strathclyde, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Stirling and the UK.

Promoting Business

We live in a vibrant country with a wealth of industries who are working hard to develop their business. Whether its for a small or large business, professional photography is important. A picture tells a thousand words, and its one way to enhance your brand, promote your products or tell the world that you exist.

Client Friendly

I believe that great images are the result of working closely with the client, so my whole ethos is about having a client-friendly business. Success is a team effort, so I believe in working closely with the client to create dynamic and eye catching images that meet your expectations and help your brand achieve its goals.


I’ve been a commercial photographer for over 30 years, and during this time I’ve worked in all aspects of photography around the world, in all kinds of weather and in all kinds of circumstances. No two photography tasks are ever the same, so I’ve built up a large vault of practical and technical experience over the years.

Flexible Rates

I can provide an hourly, half-day or full-day rates for commercial, industrial, corporate and PR photography. I have the confidence and ability to deliver timely, technical and appealing image, and have the experience to work in all kinds of environments – offices, factories, offshore, at sea, sub-surface, underground or altitude.


Being a professional photographer is a bit more than someone with a smart camera and some software: its also about skill, experience and creativity. And with over 30 years experience as a qualified and full-time photographer, I have the skills and experience to work with you to help promote your business, your brand and your hard work.

Glasgow Based

Based just outside Glasgow in the coastal town of Helensburgh, I provide my professional photography in Glasgow and Strathclyde, but also cover Edinburgh, Livingstone, Falkirk, Stirling, Argyll, Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire and just about anywhere in Scotland to provide my experience and creativity.
