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.

    I’m putting together a video for an original song by a band called Journey North wondered if I can feature your picture of Black Rock Cottage.

    If permitted I may slighly animate the picture, I’m not being paid for this work. If you are interested here’s a link to the song https://youtu.be/IYsgpenHZ-4

    I will respect any decision you make on this request.

    • Hi Alan, OK to use the image as long as the use by you or any client of yours or anyone else, in any media format, does not make money or profits from the media the image appears in. Otherwise royalties for the use of the image will apply.
      Would appreciate a copy of the video when complete. Cheers
