I am based in the West of Scotland, and undertake creative shoots, portraiture and publicity photography. Depending on the setting and desired images I can use natural light or off-camera flash lighting and can undertake a range of post processing techniques ranging from adjusting uneven skin tone and teeth discolouration through to creating unique characters and settings with photorealistic-composites.
For live events and performances reportage-style photographs are taken unobtrusively without any of the distractions usually found in full-auto cameras (i.e. the Tacet Lens photographer can photograph with no flash, no distracting auto focus lights and no "bleeps"). If there is appropriate space at an event, use of a portable lighting set-up allows us to create a pop-up studio if more formal portait-style or pictures are required, e.g. if there is a celebrity meet & greet at your event.
Feel free to get in touch with any queries regarding potential projects, shoots, events, or obtaining prints
