Hi, I’m douglas
A Photographer in Fife, Scotland
If you are about to book me as your photographer, then it’s a good idea to get to know me a bit better 👇
I’d describe myself as a anything goes kind of a person. I love looking back at old photo albums and pictures from my days as a kid, that’s why I love being a photographer. I’m able to share the stories of my amazing couples on their wedding day.
I live in a menagerie with the “boss” of the family, my amazing wife Lynsay who puts up with my photography obsession and of course my wonderful kids (Ross & Emma) plus our other 4 legged children as well (Murphy, Luna and Timmy). I know my place in the family, it’s not up the top, it’s firmly down at the bottom of the list 🙂
Photography, made with 💖
I seek and capture the real emotion and deep connection, and in a way to bring that out in each of the couples, pets and peeople I photograph and to capture it in an natural and fun way. I love to share the stories my images tell, and witnessing how much enjoyment people take from my work.
I hope by reading this you’ve got to known me a little better, this is the start to our friendship and journey. Let’s meet, let chat over coffee & cake (I do ❤️ cake) about your dreams and let’s make some magic happen 👍
Why choose me ?
I like images that show emotion and aren’t too serious. I’ll do some posing but nothing too strit as I want you to laugh and smile and enjoy each other’s company.
The core images that make up my portfolio are the natural couple shots that I do in probably 20-30 minutes in a wedding day. Throughout the rest of the day, I love capturing the moments that help remind everyone how special the day was.
I’m aware of how my presence may affect a moment so sometimes I have practiced my ninja skills so that I blend into the background, and sometimes I need to an extrovert and encourage the interaction to get the most out of it. I am relaxed, but I still engage with everyone to get the images I really want to get.
I just love talking to wedding guests and helping them feel comfortable. I like having a good time myself and I know how I appear on the day can affect the mood and general interactions throughout the wedding
I’m very approachable and friendly. I get on well with people of all ages, one of my main skills is being able to assess a situation, taking into account how people are feeling and using that to get the best out of people to make great photographs.
Every photographer has their own unique style, whether it’s using colour, caputring the essence and raw emotion or mastering light and composure.
I love to capture the raw love, pure happiness, fun and real emotion of your wedding day. Those tender loving moments between the wedding couple, laughs between friends and tears at the ceremony; through experience, I have developed the skills, spacial awareness and anticipation to ensure I am in the right places to get these photographs.
Being at Ease
A core part and essential skill of a photographer has to be making sure that the client and guests feel relaxed and comfortable when their pictures are being taken. Not everyone likes to be in front of camera (hence why i like to be behind it 😜), that’s why over the years I have been able to hone my skills ensuring that all my couples, families and guests all are comfortable with me and my kit.
