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.

I use a Canon 5DMKII full frame SLR in combination with 3 high quality “L” zoom lenses.  (16 – 35mm – f2.8;   24 – 105mm – f4;   70 – 200mm – f2.8)  I find that these 3 lenses provide both the range and quality I require for most of my photographic needs and will hire additional lenses for any “special” assignment.

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.

I hope you get as much pleasure from viewing my images as I did making them. Please let me know.
