Longshots Photography

During 38 years of selling my first photographic piece, I’ve covered almost every genre of photography.  

The style of my work is a result of a wide and varied professional background. Originally from the UK, I studied both the performing and visual arts, starting my professional life as a professional ballet dancer.   I danced with a number of classical ballet companies.  My 17-year career culminated as a Principal ballet dancer with the Scottish Ballet.  

Photography is my all-consuming life.

I love what I do, and I do it with an overwhelming passion.

I’m fortunate to work in a field that both inspires and constantly challenges me.

The passion never seems to recede; the challenge never seems to diminish; the diversity always a thrill, a constant path of opportunities and creative solutions.

Every project I undertake, I ensure that:

  • Preproduction phase is fully complete, and little is left to chance.
  • Planning and attention to detail is maintained throughout the shoot.
  • Post-production phase continues with the same meticulous process.
  • The job is delivered on time, and you, my client are satisfied with the results.
  • Where required, I will arrive with a full PPE kit and an understanding of induction processes. My highest priority during your photo shoot is Safety. I hold a current General Construction Induction Card.
