I'm drawn to the unusual, odd, eccentric and like to celebrate humanity in all its diversity. The more non-conformity there is in the media - the better! As a jobbing photographer in rural Scotland I make work that can be fitted in around commmercial work and keep a few documentary projects simmering away. Do you need a photographer in Scotland for a portrait or feature? Reactive and quick on the turn around, website is here: www.callysnapper.com phone: 0044 7960 747 173.
I make photo stories and stand-alone pictures for business, voluntary and editorial sectors. I try to deliver fact and form in the same frame – images which are honest, engaging and original.

Currently based near St Andrews in Fife and can travel.
