to print all of our work . They are based in Glasgow and are one of the
biggest and best Photo Labs in the UK , they were voted Frames and
Album manufacturer of the year 2013 at the prestigious Pixel Trade
Awards ceremony in London . This ensures that all of the products we
offer are manufactured to the very highest standards . High Quality
Products can cost a little more , but I take great pride in my work and
we think our clients deserve the very best .

About me - Ian Crowe LMPA
In 2001 , after 17 years in the same job , I decided to follow my heart and , with the support of my wife , left my job and turned my love of photography into a business . Shortly after starting out , I qualified with the Master Photographers Association and was voted Best Newcomer in the annual Scottish Master Photographers Association Awards . I work mostly from my own home based Portrait Studio , with off street parking , although I can also do location sessions when required [ Scottish weather permitting ] . I only book a limited number of sessions a day , so there is plenty of time between clients , this means there is no rush and gives you plenty of time to settle in . I can also provide Wedding Photography , please click on the link at the top of the page for more details .
I love photographing people and cover everything from Baby Photography to small Family Groups , including Model Folio work . All images are created on high end Canon cameras and are printed at one of the biggest digital labs in the UK . Quality is very important to me and I do everything in my power to make sure your images are as good or better than you could get anywhere and at prices that offer great value for money . If you are thinking about having photographs taken , of any family member , please give me a call and I will be more than happy to have a chat with you about your own personal requirements .
You should note that we supply finished "Wall Products" , the reason is that I see it as my job as a photographer to look after your images from beginning to end , this process starts the second the image is captured and only ends when I hand over the finished , high quality product to the client , ready to hang on their wall . We only use the very best products to ensure that you get years of pleasure from looking at your finished Portraits . We can supply additional unframed prints from your Portrait Session , but only after you have purchased at least one item from the main Wall Product price list , we also sell loose print packages with our Baby Photography sessions .
All of our Portrait Products are supplied from the Loxley Colour Range

What my clients say ...
"One of my greatest fears as a parent is forgetting the funny little ways of my children - it's an old cliche , but they grow up so fast . However Ian manages , somehow , to capture not just their physical likeness , but something of their heart and spirit , so that when I look back , I can see them just as they were . He'll dance , sing , play , make jokes and fool around to ensure everyone feels comfortable and relaxed and this all results in the most beautiful pictures . Ian could not be more accommodating , but it's people first and pictures second . My kids just think he's one of their friends now "
Claire Chisholm , Dumbarton . February 2013 .
"I chose to have my twins
photographed newborn by Ian and I'm so glad I did . Ian created the
perfect environment to capture precious shots of my two babies that take
pride of place in my house , we've now had our first sitting for our
babies First Year Folio as well . It takes great patience to photograph
twins and Ian has this a plenty . Thanks to Ian's patience and talent , I
now have photos that will last forever ."
