Mayhem # 1748564
I've worked on many shoots and all have been great experiences. I'm qualified to HND level in photography and graphic design which gave me a solid grounding for the technical side of photography. In 2004 I had the honour of winning the Scottish Photographic Federation colour print gold medal in their annual national completion. In turn I was fortunate to be chosen to represent Scotland internationally. I've had beauty product photographs published in a feature and advert for No.1 magazine (Scottish version of Hello magazine). More recently I've been involved with social and wedding photography and the move to fashion photography seems like a natural progression as I love working with people and the diversity which this brings.
My goal is to produce work for my own, models, makeup artists and stylists portfolios which is of the highest quality and consistently has a wow factor. I want to network with people in the industry and make the move to working in editorial and advertising photography full time.
Reasons for being on Model Mayhem
I'm here to meet like-minded people in the industry. My plan is to help to help other people in the industry build great portfolios as well as my own. I want to network with models, hair stylists, makeup artists, and fashion stylists across Scotland.
• I have worked with David on a few shoots now and always look forward to working with him. David is professional, friendly, reliable and a brilliant photographer. He makes the models we have worked with feel at ease and works in a relaxed and friendly way to get the best results. He has excellent communication with me when planning a shoot which is essential and the pictures he takes are of the highest quality, doing my make-up and the models justice. I cannot wait for our next shoot together! Work with David- you won't regret it!

• I completed a shoot with David at the beginning of December. Having admired his portfolio beforehand, I was extremely excited to see what’ll be produced. David was a very friendly character, who was open to any ideas I was keen to try- I felt completely at ease and focused in his presence. Although his knowledge of flattering lighting and angles is evident in his work, a lot of this is thanks to his level of patience- The windy conditions caused continuous equipment blow-overs and, notably, he was able to carry on professionally. I would definitely recommend him, as he has produced, what I believe are my most thought-provoking images so far

Very creative and professional, everything you want in a photographer. Would recommend you to any model and would definitely work with you again.
• Working with David was a great experience. He's very friendly, professional, he has lots of ideas and knows how to direct you, but also gives you the freedom to propose your own ideas. Despite the cold and windy weather, I really enjoyed the shoot, and also the final results!
And if you get stuck with your posing, don't worry, he's got his little notebook full of photographies where you can find inspiration!

• David, what can I say? I had the lovely pleasure of working with David on the Lindsay Fleming Bridal wear shoot in Aug at St Cyrus beach.
Communication prior to the event was excellent as I was travelling to an arranged pick-up and he was very punctual.
An excellent communicator, David is very easy to get on with and his bright and pleasant demeanour made him a joy to work with.
His standard of work is both top class and highly efficient as she dealt with the two models that we were working with, producing great results within our time frame... in between the rain showers!
Highly recommended and look forward to working with him in the future.
