Here's what some of my clients have said about me.

"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Alistair and are delighted with the images he produced for us - so detailed and such high quality. He made the whole process really easy and helped us when deciding which jewellery items would be best to photograph. Very professional and also produced our final images really quickly. Highly recommended and would love to work with Alistair again."

Jewellery by Liam Ross

"It was such a pleasure to work with Ally. He made the whole process of photographing my jewellery easy and fun. I went with little idea of what it was I wanted and Ally helped me get the perfect photographs that really represent my brand. I would absolutely recommend him."

Toni Davidson Jewellery

"Alistair has done several photo shoots for me for fashion editorial, print, and product shots for web use. He is a pleasure to work with - discussing my needs and intuitively understanding the look I want. His shots are always stunning, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him."

Sally-Ann Provan Millinery

"I have worked with Alistair on a number of photography projects and he has been nothing but a straightforward joy, he makes the whole mechanism of recording my collections a process that enhances my products. Highly recommended!"

James Donald, PickOne

"Alistair is really easy to work with, and the photos really make the detail of the work stand out... I couldn't be happier."

Chris Donnelly Ceramics

"I always enjoy working with Alistair. His attention to detail inspires confidence and he never forgets that it's as much about the product as creating a wonderful image. Alistair has a great manner with the models, make up and styling that makes everyone feel at ease. He's a good collaborator bringing plenty of ideas and enthusiasm to any shoot and I would happily recommend him to any designer looking to showcase their work through photography."

Catherine Aitken

"Alistair has photographed my ceramics on several occasions and the results are always great. I would definitely recommend him... professional, meticulous and with a creative approach to showing the artwork at its best."
