Graham Riddell Photography, landscape art & lifestyle photographer based in Innerleithen near Edinburgh. Whether you’re looking for a small Wedding Photographer, an Event Photographer, Portrait Photography or Stock Photos I cover all areas of photography throughout Scotland.
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
Being in the right place at the right time with right gear. Opportunities can be easily missed by just not being prepared for all eventualities. Pressing the shutter is just the beginning. What comes later is a lot of post editing and production processing so it is important to be ready to work on the files in a professional manner and give the client the end solution that meets their objectives i.e. prints, wall art, files.
Having a good eye for a photograph, capturing the mood and feel and composing images in a thoughtful way all helps to make the final image(s) worthy of keeping.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
1. First question is to determine the end. What is the outcome anticipated and how are final images to be presented?
2. Are they familiar with my work having checked out the web site or seen my profiles on-line and in social media channels?
3. When do they require the work to be carried out?
4. Have they set a budget for the project?
5. Is a face to face meeting required or do they have an accurate brief they can send me?
What do you love most about your job?
When clients are happy, I am happy. Their feedback is important and their complimentary comments make the job so worthwhile.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I worked for others for over twenty years from trainee executive to director and always wanted to be on my own. Life is short and I took the plunge so I could take control over my life.
Why should our clients choose you?
I am easy to get a long with and flexible to client demands both in terms of the finished product and the all important budget.

Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery & Tibetan Centre
I have wanted to visit the Tibetan Monastery and Centre in southern Scotland for years and decided it was time to make an approach. Having waited for a poor spring to pass, I made it down in June 2013 and was blessed with beautiful weather and timed it to see the extent of development now, compared to what I might have seen a few years ago. All the images I took have been donated to the Centre. My thanks to Ani Lhamo for arranging my visit and warm welcome. http://www.grahamriddellphotography.co.uk/p832305690
People of the Valley (on-going)
This is a project celebrating the abundance of talent in the Tweed Valley here in the Scottish Borders where I have lived for the past 20 years. Over time, you will find artists, musicians, and people that generally interest me. Some are the beginning of their careers, others have been crafting away for years. I hope you enjoy the images and their stories. http://www.grahamriddellphotography.co.uk/f152499151
