A peedie bit about me

Hi, I'm Kirstin and I've been fortunate enough to have been raised in the beautiful Orkney Islands. I'm 26 years old and have always had a passion for capturing how I see the world. I've recently decided I would like to turn my hobby into a career. To help achieve this I attended a wedding photography course in September 2023 with The Trained Eye and then in March 2024 attended Thrive which was taken by some of the UK's top wedding photographers to help further hone my modern wedding imagery style.

Pet Photography

Work with me

If you hadn't guessed already, I absolutely love animals. I have a couple of labradors, they are my world! Having the two of them has definitely helped when it comes to pet sessions as I've had loads of practice trying to capture action shots with these two energetic pups.

Interests & Hobbies

I'd describe myself as a lipstick tomboy, I love getting all glammed up for a night out but equally as happy if I'm covered in mud from a hike with the dogs.

I love travelling, skiing, catching up with friends, netball, gym, hiking, walking my dogs and of course taking pictures.

My Photography Story

I've been interested in photography since the age of 10, taking a camera everywhere I went, a habit I continue to this day!

When my dog Skye was pregnant with puppies I decided to upgrade my camera to a Nikon D780 and start taking my hobby more seriously, documenting the whole pregnancy.

Since then, I've continued to develop as a photographer, taking my camera with me to weddings, sports events, parties, vintage car rallies and countless adventures!

Work Experience

Let's work together

For 7 years I worked in the Kirkwall branch of Sutherlands Pharmacy and Photolab and loved learning how the cameras and equipment work.

I took lots of passport photos while I worked there which helped me learn and understand the importance of lighting and flash. Most people dread the thought of getting their passport photo taken so I have lots of practice with people who are not often in front of a camera and learnt how to make them feel comfortable and at ease.
