Ben Shakespeare

Hi and welcome to Islay, me and other stuff...

So, I'm Ben.

I'm the guy who's going to do whatever it takes, to get the pictures you want. I'm the guy who arrives for the photoshoot in wellies - you stay dry, I get the shot.

Islay and Us

Family on Machir Bay
This is me, Moira, Brody and Finn. We love our Islay life.
Yes, Islay's about whisky, wildlife and amazing landscapes, but it's also about fun, family and capturing a moment.

Island Living

In that wonderful island way, I have more than one job.

I work as a digital media officer for the Islay Gaelic Centre, I also work as a supply teacher in the local primary schools (I'm a former full-time primary teacher!)

But I'm also portrait, wedding, whisky and Islay professional photographer - I love photographing the diverse subjects Islay has to offer.

And if that wasn't enough, I also run the social media and do the photography for the world famous Islay Festival Fèis Ìle.

It keeps me busy!

Why does that matter?

It all means I can do my best for you!
I can work with you and your kids to get the perfect images, know the perfect locations, be fun, be entertaining, be understanding. And be all those things at once.
"Ben! The images are wonderful, thanks so much from the me and the family!
