Welcome to Torridon

Also in the recent June issue of Ideal Home was this stunning contemporary home, called The Net Store Located on the far north west coast of Scotland. Some of the road trips we have undertaken in the creation of the Great Scottish Indoors have been truly remarkable. My love of this scenery is what inspired me to […]

A Perfect Finish

Sometimes we come across a house and it just stays with us. We are left in awe by the sheer work and imagination of the owners. This house is on the coast of Fife – yes Fife! The owner spotted a run down 1970s chalet in poor repair, overlooking the sea and bought it. The […]

The Garnhams

Delighted to introduce you to a young couple who, in their spare time, have immersed themselves into a creative vector that is at once, delightfully mesmerising and incredibly refreshing. Rachelle, by day, is marketing manager of the fast growing fashion and shopping app Mallzee. Ben is a maths teacher, who uses the school holidays to fulfil […]

My Garden Dream

I literally woke up to find our garden in Ideal Home magazine – and it wasn’t a dream!We bought our unique brutalist 1970s house about 15 years ago, convinced that we could make it work as a family home and errr, well, slowly we got there.When we first bought our house, this was the back […]

Building the dream

How often have you quietly wished that you could just pull down your lovely, but slightly crumbling home and just start all over again? You could build something that suits you exactly: utility room – check, zero heating bills – check; lots of floor to ceiling windows – check. I certainly have, many times…A downstairs […]

A Classical New Town Apartment

The classical tenements of Glasgow and Edinburgh remind me so much of the purpose built apartments of European cities. They are fantastic – beautifully built and appointed and make wonderful homes for every stage of life. We photographed this top floor and attic flat for Period Living magazine, it is in the latest, April 2018 […]

Castaway knitting

Sara and her husband John moved to North Berwick determined to make the most of the wonderful outdoor lifestyle on offer for their two sons in the beautiful seaside town. Believing you should knit fast and die warm, Sara set up her now, very successful mail order knitting business, Castaway Knitting Sara freely admits she is […]

2more Heads

We love keeping in touch with people we photograph and hearing their news when they set up a business or move house. Just as wedding photographers often happily follow up with baby photographs, sibling’s weddings and friends, we do too. So we were delighted when we met  Catherine and Cameron McCallum, the owners of this […]

A clear winner

Every so often I come across a house I would dearly like to live in. You would think this would happen all too often in my job, but actually I am a contented soul and very happy to come home, but I did think twice leaving this place. I honestly think it was the louvred […]

Mid Rock House

Continuing with my theme of travel, but back in Scotland now, I thought I would cover a summer destination in the gorgeous seaside village of Elie on the East Neuk of Fife. A truly stunning property and very much a ‘home from home’, suitable for an extended family or a large group of friends. It […]

Chalet Savoie Faire

I would like to follow on from my post about Ballintaggart Farm, a Perthshire cookery school, with a story about an equally brilliant, destination cook school, this time in the French Alps: Chalet Savoie Faire. It appeared in the January issue of Period Living magazine and to be honest, visiting it was one of the […]

Ballintaggart Farm

For my first post for this new rebranded blog I would like to show off a feature that we shot last winter for the current edition of Country Homes & Interiors magazine. We got to know Chris and Rachel Rowley when we photographed and wrote about their Edinburgh kitchen from which they operated the popular […]

Cosying up for winter

It really is getting chilly and it is suddenly December – so no surprise! Gorgeous bedding is an obvious must-have at this time of year. When we shot this glorious bedroom and dressing room suite, in a country house in Fife I fell in love, it seemed so perfect…
