Panoramic photography

By John MacLean, 17/03/15:

 

Ihave acquired some new equipment recently for more specialised panoramic work where very wide-view photographs are required (or even 360 degree panoramics, for use as VR quicktime files).

Contact me for more details if you need this kind of work carried out.

Lanntair 30th and Grinneas

By John MacLean, 23/02/15:

 

Amazingly, An Lanntair in Stornoway is 30 years old this year. I still remember a couple of the photos I showed in the first Grinneas open exhibition in 1985, in its original location in Stornoway Town Hall.

Grinneas still soldiers on annually, and this year’s exhibition opening (and 30th anniversary celebration) takes place on the evening of 28th February.

Just a reminder (as I’ve been asked about this a few times recently) that John MacLean Photography provides professional photographic services throughout the Western Isles/Outer Hebrides, including the Isle of Barra, Vatersay, Eriskay, North & South Uist, Benbecula, Berneray, Harris and of course Lewis, where I’m based. I am happy to travel up and down the length of the Hebrides at any time of year (it can be a real adventure in winter!) and also enjoy visiting the remoter islands, like the Shiant Isles and St Kilda.

I am well accustomed to taking on commissions at short notice, working to tight deadlines and enjoy meeting and engaging with people in the island communities in which I live and work.

If you need photographic work done quickly and to a professional standard, in the first instance please call me on 01851 820441 / 07468 297727 or use the Contact form to drop me a line and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can (normally within 24 hours).

Framing services

 

An interesting and timely project today, reframing sets of medals from both World Wars.

The Second World War set includes the Arctic Star campaign medal, which only began to be presented to veterans in 2013.
