In addition to his large library of stunning images, Ian can be commissioned to capture the precise photographs that you want. Be they nautical, yachts or landscapes, for which he is well known or cities, architectural and property, which have also formed previous client requests.

He is the author of two books and contributed to a number of others, writes articles for photographic magazines and newspapers in addition to writing for his own endeavours.
His commissions have included work for Time Out, Savill’s, Rathbone Brothers Plc, Chewton Glen Hotel, Holiday Inn, magazines, publishers and printers as well as private clients for that special landscape or yachting image used for both business and pleasure.

Commissions are all about time employed. This includes preparation, travel, the photography on location and then the editing and processing of the images to provide the pictures you, the customer requires. Ian's method of producing images means that the production is a two stage process: First, the raw image is captured in camera; This necessitates editing and processing of this raw information to produce the finished images. Time spent taking images is roughly commensurate with the time taken editing and producing the finished images.

These photographs may be supplied in either digital form for advertising brochure, magazine or Newsletter use for example; or as finished prints to hang and decorate your office or private premises.
