Specialised in game shoot photography.

With over four years experience as a gameshoot photographer I know which shots to get and how to get them. I understand that for many of my clients this is an occasion to relax, enjoy themselves and take a well deserved break from the office environment and so I do my best to ensure that my presence remains for the most part, peripheral.

A respectful approach.

My approach is discreet, respectful and focused on creating a visual record of the day without interrupting to the proceedings. I certainly don't want you to feel like there's a member of the paparazzi along for the day. I keep my distance and let everyone enjoy their day. I do this by working with a telephoto lens that allows me to really keep my distance from the group and has the added benefit of allowing my subjects to relax and almost forget I'm there.

Your shoot day covered.

When you book me for the day I'm very happy to crack on and cover it, but it’s your day. So if you have any special requests or particular photos that you'd like me to capture, please let me know and I’ll add them to my shot list for the day.

Tailor your day.

While I have a standard rate for a shoot day, I am happy to tailor a package to suit your needs. Some of my clients prefer to have a photobook added to the package, whereas others like to have more prints built into it. So if you’d like to discuss your ideas, please get in touch.


Frequently asked questions:

My shoot is this week, is it too late to book?

If I’m not already booked, I will need 24 hours to prepare for a new shoot and the booking fee to be paid.

Do you have your own 4x4 vehicle?

My vehicle is equipped with off-road tyres and is set up to act as a mobile studio on the day.

How far will you travel to photograph your shoot?

I relish the opportunity to visit new shoots, so I will travel anywhere in the UK to capture your day!



From initial engagement through to provision of the photobook and photographs, Hamish was extremely helpful. He fitted in with the shoot team unobtrusively capturing fantastic memories of the day including some great true-to-life character shots as well as the four-legged team in action. If you are looking for a shoot photographer, I would recommend Hamish.
