Behind the lens
If you don’t already know of Neil Fordyce or his photography style – here is a brief introduction.
From an early age Neil has shown an interest in photography, he says it is because he wasnt too great at painting or drawing, but as a child was once given a second hand camera and from then there was no stopping him with photography of family outings and of his hometown South Queensferry. From these beginnings he began to experiment with techniques, processing methods and camera angles – never content with the norm!
Neil spent time working in the aduio/visual field, video production and theatre but recognised photographic training came from Napier in Edinburgh (now Napier University), but he was keen to cut his own furrow and is widely acknowledged as the founder of the current reportage photography movement within the wedding genre which he introduced using his background in video production storyboarding.
He is a member of the Master Photographers Association, His passion for his industry means as a member he has served on his regional committee for a number of years and also nationally on the board of directors.
Neil has been in his fulltime photography business for over 18 years now and as a true professional produces amazing results whether his client prefers a totally as it happens reportage wedding day or a relaxed and informal art style or as with many of his delighted couples a lovely mix of all styles
Neil has gained numerous awards over these years for his work and continually strives to be at the forefront of wedding photography with images that imprint themselves on the memory.
Neil admits to not being so keen on having his own photograph taken and is happier behind the lens so he empathises totally with the majority of his clients who say that they too are a little wary about having their photographs taken. He is an expert at making people feel at ease and as a result produces lovely natural and relaxed images from a photography session. His style has an honest clarity to it, and is always evolving yet always remains distinctly his.
