Sometimes my customers are not entirely........human!
I am also happy to photograph your pets and was delighted to have this handsome fellow in the studio recently. His name is Cheeko!
This lovely lady had put off getting her photo taken for around fifteen years. She finally plucked up the courage to come in and get a portrait done as a Christmas gift to her husband. I thought i'd do something different and incorporated her necklace into the border. I phoned to let her know it was ready and had to do a bit of quick thinking when her husband answered......I asked him to tell her her jewellery was ready to be picked up....not entirely untrue!
No, I haven't put my camera down in favour of a pencil! After photographing this young lady I decided to play around with the editing and thought this sketch effect was quite striking.
Feedback is very important to me and it's always lovely to hear that a customer is happy.
A recent project I was asked to do was a spot of restoration work. This couple were approaching their 25th wedding anniversary and the photo had been in a frame since then, gradually becoming faded.
Spreading some festive cheer as Santa appears at MacKenzie & Cruickshank's garden centre, accompanied by his trusty elf and with Moray Concert Brass providing the soundtrack of cheery Christmas tunes.
The above photo was recently seen in the book 'Forres Past and Present' which was the inspiration for the new staff picture. Strange to think that in another eighty years or so the new one may appear in "The Way We Were" and someone else will be photographing the next generation of MacKenzie & Cruickshank employees!
This is a great opportunity for other companies to have staff group pictures taken!!!
These photos are now available in ready to frame prints.
