Kirsten is a recent gradu­ate from Morn­ing­side Dance Academy in Edin­burgh — these are her selec­ted images from a shared port­fo­lio shoot with her friend Ash­ley.

Ash­ley is another recent gradu­ate from Morn­ing­side Dance Academy in Edin­burgh — she got in touch after Heather recom­men­ded us and booked a port­fo­lio shoot with her friend Kirsten. As a pro­fes­sion­al, the images you need to rep­res­ent your­self to agents and cast­ing dir­ect­ors needs to do you justice — […]

Another gradu­ate of Morn­ing­side Dance Academy, Taylor shared her head shot and dance port­fo­lio ses­sion with Heather.  If you value your pro­fes­sion­al image and need to update your port­fo­lio, don’t wait — get in touch and book your ses­sion now.

Heather got in touch as a refer­ral. As a new gradu­ate from Morn­ing­side Dance Academy in Edin­burgh, she was look­ing for a head shot and dance port­fo­lio pho­toshoot. The stand­ard pack­age is three shots — not adding extras can be a chal­lenge (Heather failed and ordered lots of extras!).

Our friend and award-win­ning pho­to­grapher, Louise Sum­ner is bring­ing The Fairy Exper­i­ence back to our pho­to­graphy stu­dio in cent­ral Scot­land for four days in June (Thursday 11th — Sunday 14th). Again, we’ve selec­ted Edin­burgh Sick Kids as our chosen char­ity, so by par­ti­cip­at­ing you help raise funds for a very […]

After two very suc­cess­ful vis­its with The Fairy Exper­i­ence, our good friend (and award-win­nning pho­to­grapher) Louise Sum­ner is bring­ing her Frozen Exper­i­ence to our pho­to­graphy stu­dio in cent­ral Scot­land for three days in March (Fri­day 13th, Sat­urday 14th and Sunday 15th). The Frozen Exper­i­ence is only avail­able for these three […]

After a very suc­cess­ful vis­it in May, our friend Louise Sum­ner is bring­ing The Fairy Exper­i­ence back to our pho­to­graphy stu­dio in cent­ral Scot­land for four days in Octo­ber. Again, we’ve selec­ted Edin­burgh Sick Kids as our chosen char­ity, so by par­ti­cip­at­ing you help raise funds for a very worthy […]

Unfor­tu­nately my entry was dis­qual­i­fied in the com­pet­i­tion (appar­ently there is some small print about employ­ees being ineligible to enter — I’m sure I was in with a great chance!). The win­ning two images are of Ava and Kier­an. For Ava’s image, Shona, our judge said “it is such a […]

If you missed Louise’s last vis­it with The Fairy Exper­i­ence, you’ll be delighted to know that we’ve set dates for Octo­ber. Watch this space.


Join us in our por­trait stu­dio in cent­ral Scot­land for the Fairy Exper­i­ence — Thursday 15th — Sunday 18th May — you could win one of two prizes worth £250 each and for every sale we’ll make a dona­tion to Edin­burgh Sick Kids.  The Fairy Exper­i­ence is only avail­able for these […]

It’s iron­ic that though we haven’t mar­keted ourselves as pet pho­to­graph­ers, we prob­ably shoot as many por­traits of dogs as we do of adult humans. Gen­er­ally spe­cial offers are time lim­ited, but we can’t see us stop­ping this offer — for every dog por­trait sit­ting we will make a dona­tion […]

All digit­al images require some post-pro­cessing. Post-pro­cessing cov­ers col­our cor­rec­tion, bright­ness, con­trast and sim­il­ar adjust­ments. Mak­ing con­sist­ent changes over a set of images is key — incon­sist­ency in a pro­fes­sion­al pro­duct is inex­cus­able. “Straight from the cam­era” images can be good, but do you not want bet­ter than good? Retouch­ing is […]

Like all aspects of busi­ness brand­ing, Jack­ie knows that the stand­ard of the image she uses to rep­res­ent both her­self and her busi­ness is very import­ant, so chose us for busi­ness por­trait ses­sion. Shoot­ing with a white back­ground isn’t my per­son­al choice for a por­trait, but the image is actu­ally […]

Kris came back for another of our Stu­dio Light­ing por­trait ses­sions. This time the por­traits of him just seemed to work best in col­our due to the lovely com­pli­ment­ary tones, so I’ve decided to keep them that way. Choos­ing cloth­ing that has tex­ture or a bal­an­cing col­our can make or […]

This is a shot of Klara taken on the second class of our Stu­dio Light­ing course. On this occa­sion Klara gal­lantly stepped in at short notice sport­ing some snazzy new red hair. Nor­mally we would have a blond mod­el for this par­tic­u­lar ses­sion, but I have to say I really […]

This is my favour­ite shot of Kris (from my stu­dio light­ing class). Being able to exper­i­ment with dif­fer­ent light­ing styles and more con­trast makes male por­trait­ure a lot of fun.  Do you want a strik­ing por­trait of your guy? get in touch!
