When we are not remaining mother and father and making recollections as a spouse and children, we adore nothing far more than to produce recollections for our customers. We are laidback folk so we constantly want our perform to emote that simplicity and authenticity as opposed to stiff and staged pics.
I did film pictures in significant faculty due to the fact it was constantly a enthusiasm of mine but remaining that driving just after graduating to go with the movement of daily life ( but never ever still left the camera guiding of course…). The company started when I was designed redundant from a work I beloved. I understood I required to do some thing I loved just as a great deal, so made the decision to eventually do what I experienced always desired to do complete time and that was to be a photographer. I assisted mates back again property in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at a wedding day and realised this was it. I was absolutely taken by the feelings, love, and times of the day. Those fleeting moments I experienced the chance to capture created my coronary heart so joyful.
When I obtained again to Glasgow from that excursion, I received correct into developing our small business from scratch, even doing work for wedding ceremony planners in Italy the place I learned even extra about looking at light and fell in like with it all more than all over again. Scott, my partner and other 50 percent of the organization, was my assistant and next shooter at weddings and we soon realised (the good news is) that he had an eye for photography as nicely. In year two of the enterprise, we acquired so hectic he had to depart his work and there you have it!

Got any tales to share?
A random bit of expertise about us… in 2008, one year soon after relocating back to Scotland, we went back to Canada for a summer holiday break to visit. My mom had identified out that a dinosaur museum two hours absent from our farm supplied dig excursions so the whole spouse and children went for a working day out.
My brother and I had been beside ourselves with enjoyment (each in our mid-twenties at this level, haha). We were being dinosaur obsessed as children. I can even now recall accurately where by we had been as a family members when I observed the 1st Jurassic Park and there ended up numerous summer season outings to Drumheller in Alberta.
Anyway, we obtained to guide on a dig in a new spot, 10 minutes in I identified a enormous tooth. A single hour later we had uncovered a lot more. It was a substantial uncover as it turned out to be the next largest mosasaur uncovered in the location. I got to identify it (I named him Angus) and our uncover ended up in the front website page newspapers in Manitoba. It was wild! Our picture was in the museum together with the tooth and other bits we uncovered for years. I also wrote a piece about it for Vacation Manitoba. Now that they have uncovered him the pieces have been rejoined with the relaxation but it was superior fun! So there you have it, haha!
