Wedding, Portrait, Newborn and Commercial Photographer on the Island of Islay
Great photography is all about making connections
It’s about capturing what’s important to you – your family, your friends and the landscapes that you love. Whether you need a wedding photographer for the island wedding of your dreams, a family portrait with people from the mainland or a fun family shoot on the beach, we can work together to create images that will last a lifetime. Go on, have a browse…
I offer a simple, natural style of portrait photography – allowing the people to become the star of the show. Whatever ages, I can capture portraits that the whole family can admire. We have the stunning locations on Islay to really make special pictures a reality.
It’s simple – portraits are all about you, being yourself – if you’re not being yourself and having fun. I’ll work with you to get the feel, style and place you want – to get the picture that fits. Get in touch, what are you waiting for!

I love living here. I love photographing here. Islay has interesting and exciting events happening all year round – this page has just a few of the things hat have been happening. I’ll keep adding to this as you can’t be an event photographer on an island like this if you’re not constantly taking photographs – there’s inspiration everywhere!
So it you’re needing a photographer for your latest event, product launch or family get-together, just get in touch. Reasonable prices and a passion for what I do here! Take a little look at the slideshows below to get a flavour of what’s been happening on the island. Hope to see you all here soon!
I did think about writing this myself, but I always think it’s a bit weird writing about yourself, so over to my wife, Moira.
I have known Ben for 20 years and I’m writing this because he really is that good. He may be a bit scatty at times… I can’t remember the number of times this week he has misplaced something or other, but when it comes to photography he’s a natural talent.
Ben sees the moments that most people miss and the angles that seem quite bizarre but produce the most amazing photographs.
He is just a lovely man (yeah, I know I’m biased!) and wonderful dad to Brody – the bagpiping-highland dancing manic – and Finn – “car, hello, tractor…” repeat.
Nothing is too much trouble for him and he always goes above and beyond in all he does. If you’re not happy, he’s not happy.
Moving to Islay was the best thing that we ever did, it’s given Ben the opportunity to do what he’s best at, taking pictures that make people happy.
Couldn’t have said it better myself! Hopefully that gives you a little about who I am, and why I should be the one to take pictures for you.
