Jim Reid's Photography Site


Hi! and welcome to my photography site.
I am a landscape, nature and events photographer living in Scotland.
I love to make photographic images which capture the essence of a scene. I am always looking for a different perspective, to add a unique quality to my shots, but believe that it is a combination of the quality of light and composition that is the key to creating high impact, emotion evoking images.
In the past, I used a Canon 5DMKII, but recently traded up for a Sony Alpha7 MkIII mirrorless full frame Camera.
Main lenses are a Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 Gmaster MkII; and a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L with a Metabones Canon/Sony E mount adapter.
At Xmas 2022, I aquired a new Sony 200 – 600mm Zoom, to add to my lens collection, which is a superb wildlife and action/sports lens.
These lenses provide both the range and quality I require for most of my photographic needs and will hire additional lenses for any “special” assignment.
Although there is nothing quite like rising at 5.30am, on a wet autumn morning and driving into Glencoe for a 7am sunrise photoshoot, when you are rewarded with a break in cloud cover and the soft morning light illuminates the magnificent majesty of the Scottish landscape, which I really enjoyed, I now spend more time creating images, of some more local scenes of natural beauty.
I hope you get as much pleasure from viewing my images as I did making them. Please let me know.
