"His skill and knowledge of how the media works means that you can trust Ian will get you a range of shots to choose from, all in focus and helping to elevate your story or announcement. "Even more crucially, he gets the photos edited and turned around quickly with all captions in place and zero drama."

As both a staff member and as a freelance, he has shown a great commitment to the titles and the team. He shows complete awareness of our products - and their specific needs. He happily goes the extra mile to make sure that the pictures he supplies to us are the best they possibly can be. He is a professional joy to work with."
Sharon Simpson, Head of communications, said: "Ian took the most incredible series of portraits for our Women in Science in Scotland exhibition. His attention to detail in order to get the best possible photo of each person was very impressive. We are absolutely delighted with the final result which has proven so popular that the exhibition has now travelled the length and breadth of the country, has an online presence and has also been produced as an installation at Edinburgh Airport. Ian has also worked on various other photo calls for us, and every time he takes great photos which get picked up in the press and used in our various publications.
Eve Keepax, Education and Learning Officer, Said: “For a few years now, Ian has taken photos of our events in different locations, with different groups of people. If required, he manages the subjects with ease to set up different shots and still get authentic expression to capture the moment. He understands what we’re looking for, adds his own touch, and has always delivered cracking pictures.” Nicola McClean, Senior Communications director, said: "It is a real pleasure working with Ian for our clients. Full of enthusiasm for the job at hand, nothing is too much trouble and he always comes to the table with creative ideas and fresh angles for exciting photography that both resonates with media and works across a range of media channels" Greg Maxwell, Head of Corporate Affairs, said: “Ian’s photography is constantly of a high quality and his eye for a photo has delivered some eye-catching phots of Scotland’s largest airport. He’s always ready to discuss ideas with and use his experience to offer advice, and his knowledge of the industry has delivered a wide-range of positive media coverage for us.”
Lynsey Fusco, Head of Marketing and Communications, said: “Having worked on a smaller campaign and impressing the team, Ian was appointed as one of our Official Show Photographers in 2019.
