Extra information:

Trained by Hope Laboratories in the 1980's Iain started working in the days of chemical photography when planning and composition happened as the photograph was taken.

After many years of working in a commercial studio shooting with Hasselblad on medium format Iain migrated to Nikon and Sports photography. He has spent the last 8 years specialising primarily in outdoor team sports. Iain’s love of music and live entertainment have led him to cover some of the larger music events in the UK and more personal work with a few select UK artists.

Iain has gained accreditation with Nikon and has current DBS clearance through the RFU for work as a photographer with children.
