Experience:
Hi, my name is Thomas McDonald, or "Tam" to those who know me. I'm a professional photographer located primarily in the Glasgow/West of Scotland area however; I do travel throughout the United Kingdom on a regular basis. I have 22 years experience capturing imagery within the military, social, commercial and public relations arena, a majority of which has been published through various local, regional and national media organisations, Reuters, PA etc.

Recently however, I'm now focusing more of my time and effort to the more creative aspects of photography i.e; advertising, lifestyle, wedding, portrait and at this moment in time; environmental/urban portraiture and the artistic aspects of tasteful glamour & fashion photography.

I'm a verbose and confident individual with a great sense of humor. Extremely dedicated to my chosen profession, I like to work in a very relaxed and informal manner however, I'm a consummate professional and strive to produce work of the highest quality.

People often ask what I do for a living...? My reply is always the same "Livin the dream!" To work in a profession that gives me so much creative license, personal satisfaction and allows me to nurture my innovative imagery from initial capture through to finished product, ensures...I feel as though I have never worked a day in my life!

SERVICES: STUDIO/LOCATION SHOOTS; HEAD SHOTS/PORTFOILO IMAGES; WEDDING; COMMERCIAL; LIFESTYLE; FASHION/GLAMOUR AND PUBLIC RELATIONS PHOTOGRAPHY.

I WILL ALWAYS CONSIDER TFP/CD SHOOTS, IF I FEEL IT WOULD BENEFIT BOTH THE CLIENTS & MY OWN PORTFOILO, SO PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK!

If you are inexperienced or relatively new to modeling; I will give hints, tips and advice on posing, facial expressions and body posture, to ensure you receive the utmost from each and every shoot. There are no hard and fast time restrictions during your shoot. The times stated above are guidelines only, and I will only stop shooting when both the client and myself are happy with the images captured on the day.

After the shoot you will receive a large selection of the best images captured during your shoot. These will be "High Resolution" on CD, to do with as you please.

If you're an established model or agency looking to update your portfolio with modern, stylish and contemporary imagery, or are a young aspiring model taking you're first tentative steps into the world of fashion and glamour, "PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH". I would love to hear from you!

Cheers Tam...prophot170!

Well... where do I start?! I had a location shoot with Tam today (well... 4 different locations!) and I had such a great day! Tam is amazing to work with... he's very professional & has great ideas, he knows fantastic locations and he can make a tiny little space into a great place to shoot! I'm absolutely thrilled with the pictures Tam took today and I can't wait to see the final results. Tam is also very easy & fun to work with, the day went really fast and I had a great laugh too! I was so enjoying it that I even went into the cold water of Scotland (yes, in April!). I honestly cannot recommend Tam enough, working with him will guarantee you satisfaction and no disappointment. I'm really looking forward to our next shoot. Thanks again for today Tam, I had a fantastic day :) x

Tam was my boss for around 2 years and could only be discribed as an amazing photographer so much so they should invent a new catagory above professional just for him! We move in the same circles even now and everyone i know will recognise his work instantly if not least for the fact tams work has always been the reason they have remained in second place! Professional, creative and with so much to teach my 2 years working for tam just wasnt enough to even touch the surface of his knowledge. if you want the best most unique and inventive photography with a personal touch then you wont find it anywhere like you can here! thanks mate and i'll see you down here in the sunny south real soon!
