The Mackie Family

Family Studio

It was great having the Mackie family into the studio last Saturday! We started off with some classic images and then some fun shots! I like the variation between the classic almost Victorian images and then the almost un-posed ones!! We finished off with some portraits of the babies and both of them were great! Tiny children who were quite happy to sit through a studio sitting with hardly a complaint! That doesn’t happen very often!! You can see more photographs here.

More information below!

Family Portraits

Without pictures, memories are all we have. Pictures tell stories and it is important to tell your own.
Our children grow up only once and our relationships with our family are what mould’s us as human beings. If you want to see your happy moments captured forever in a family portrait, enquire at Steven Parry Donald photography today. Portraits, family portraits & model portfolios can be on location and in our studio on Dalry Road near Haymarket train station!

The Paterson Family

Family Photography, Edinburgh, Group Photography

The Paterson Family on Location
Family photographs are always fun, more so when it’s a family that has been photographed by me for quite a number of years! From wedding photography, family events and now to new additions to the family! It was super to see everyone and shooting informal photographs near the Pentland Hills on a chilly April morning was just great!!

Hopetoun House

Hopetoun House, South Queensferry near Edinburgh –  Group photograph.
Just setting up for a Group photograph of almost 100 people on the steps at Hopetoun House. They had just flown in from Boston and needed a photograph to remember their trip to Edinburgh. I’ve worked for them in the past and they are super clients! Looking forward to the next shoot for them in September!!

Scotland is becoming increasingly popular as a location for both TV and Film making. This month Edinburgh has become home to the Avengers Film Crew. Filming starts in a few days and they are still looking for extras! This is your big chance to be in a major film shot right here in Edinburgh!! We had been inundated with star struck Edinburgh people keen to be involved and of course, they need Photos! We can provide white backgrounds (often requested) or something more special, (like our warehouse location). Great if you want to stand out from the crowed! We charge £50 for the shoot and included are 5 high res images to send straight to the Agents or Film companies. These photoshoots are also great for Stage actors and performers.

High Constables Of Edinburgh

Group Photography Edinburgh
Ward X of the High Constables of Edinburgh decided to have another group photograph done. The last one was 10 years ago! The High Constables date back to 1611 and were the first official Edinburgh police force. They now escort the Lord Provost on official occasions and provide a ceremonial presence at various events such as the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Riding of the Marches.
The photograph was taken at the City Chambers and the Constables are wearing their ceremonial attire of morning suits, white gloves, top hats and of course their batons! On each lapel, you will see the Badge of Office, identifying each Constable with a unique number. You will also notice a lady member of the Ward. The Society is now open to Lady Constables who wear their own uniform and bring a new dimension to this ancient order.

Lynda in our Edinburgh Studio

Studio Photography Edinburgh
Lynda booked a shoot in our Edinburgh studio to have photographs taken with her latest acquisition! The most fabulous ball gown ! The combination of the aquamarine dress and Lynda’s colouring was remarkable, producing some super images. Amazing photographs so totally different from the commercial norm.
Lynda arrived wearing her dress which caused something of a sensation in Dalry Road. Lynda thought it was a good idea to get ready at home. Apparently, it takes a long time to get into a dress like this and requires a lot of assistance!

Black Swan

Edinburgh Studio photography
New camera kit need a lot of practice to make sure that it feels like second nature in use. I used my new 35mm 1.4 lens for this shoot of Angela. Using only available light, this lens captures the texture of the black feathers in Angela’s cape. The original idea was to shoot something moody and dark, but the combination of the lens and lighting has produced something more textured and defined. If you would like something in a similar genre, give me a call at the Edinburgh studio on 0131 337 6021.

Edinburgh Photography- Glory at the Edinburgh Canal

Location Photography
Glory, who is a Gospel singer, asked us to shoot a portfolio of images for the cover of her latest CD!! Location Photography. We decided to go on location to the Union Canal in Edinburgh which is not far from my studio in Dalry Road. We picked a great morning with wonderful weather and chose a spot that offered a variety of backgrounds. The shoot went really well and I had a new assistant, Glory’s young son Joshua! He was really helpful except for the moment when he let go of my reflector and it rolled towards the canal!! Dodging the various dogs and cyclists, I managed to grab it just in time!!
This photo-shoot was so much fun and we ended up with a terrific selection of photographs, one of which you see here. If you would like to have a similar photo-shoot for a distinct purpose or just for fun, give me a call on 0131 337 6021 or email at
Post production was really good and we created a number of different looks for Glory to consider and she picked an amazing shot! SPDPHOTO have been asked to do the graphics for the CD cover as well so please watch out for Glory’s CD next time you are in a music shop!
