We are Stuart & Jim, professional photographers and filmmakers based in Ayr and Hollybush, South Ayrshire. We specialize in aerial stills and video as well as the more ground-based photography, video, and stock.
We are lucky enough to have had careers spanning many decades. Stuart started out in the early '90s as a photojournalist for Scottish and English newspapers, including the Ayrshire Post, Daily Record, Glasgow Evening Times, The Herald and Derby Evening Telegraph. Stuart has worked as a commercial photographer and filmmaker since the early '00s.
Whilst Jim has spent more years than he cares to mention as an engineer and mechanic at Ferguslea Engineering and brings a wide-ranging knowledge of mechanical engineering, electronics to the business. Now retired from his job as a mechanic and MOT inspector, Jim works as our primary drone pilot and also supports Stuart up as a 2nd camera operator and 1st assistant on video and stills shoots.
Stuarts career has been wide and varied which is reflected in his comprehensive portfolio of imagery. He has covered a wide range of photo-related disciplines including commercial, lifestyle, portraits, editorial, and sports. He now specializes in stock and lighting on location as well as still keeping his hand in the cookie jar when it comes to compositing and editing video.Stuart lives in Ayr with his lovely Gillian and two sons aged age 8 and 20. Jim has been married to his wonderful wife Jenny for over 25 years and they live with their cats Bhindi & Sari in Hollybush just outside Ayr.
