Don't forget the Scottish have a well-earned reputation for being thrifty (tight-fisted).
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Hi Roxy

I would listen to Chrissie. She has been modelling up here for a while.

In my opinion another person to contact would be Fredau H.

http://www.purestorm.com/Fredau

She models up here. She is always busy and brilliant. However I do not know how much of the work is up here or whether it is all touring. However she is moving to Canada. She will be missed.

I think that you would struggle for adult. (That is my personal opinion) However if you are looking to shoot Art style then you should get work.

Riding on the Gotterdammerung. Down and down she goes. Where she stops no one knows.

Also I meant to mention above look at the Scottish Creative Network and the local photographic networks on the evil facebook.

(Some of us will call it Pusbook).

Also for outdoor shoots highland Perthshire, Angus and Aberdeenshire are great on the three sunny days a year.

Since I am not a professional photographer but have another job working with large companies I can tell you this:
In Scotland is only one thing plenty, and that are midges.
Followed by too much alcohol.

Work is nearly always bad paid, except you are a banker.

My advise:
I do not know why you want to move, but if you want to boost yourself seriously ...

Why not going to the centre of everything (in Europe): Germany.
Everything is more plenty there than here, but also much more challenging and rewarding, (British laziness is not helpful).
Why Germany?

If you are in Scotland and enter your car and drive ten hours you are ether in the worst northwest on a tiny single track road or about just passing London, what is both equal to nowhere, because still in the same tiny country with all its limitations ...

If you do that driving in Germany (based Cologne) you are in less time in all the big centers: Duesseldorf, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Brussels, Paris, Milano.
And there is the world class of modeling and opportunities.




Idiot.
