About Me

Self portrait - Well you would not want anyone else taking your picture - would you?

Self portrait – Well you would not want anyone else taking your picture – would you?

 

I have been taking pictures for more that thirty years now. That is not a measure of how good I am, merely a pointer to how old I have become! Famous photographers – still working at getting on the list! We all love a trier.

Started taking Scotvec courses at college many years ago, and worked my way to the Kodak diploma in Photography. I also undertook an advanced course at Clydebank college to pass Higher exams in photography. A photojournalist, taught from the tutors at the College of Building and Printing. I always enjoyed seeing my words and pictures appearing in various newspapers here and abroad.

My main area of interest is People pictures (portraits if you will) and taking record/archive material for my regiment – Queens Own Highlanders. See this site for 100s of pictures! This also led to the production of the 200th anniversary DVD/Video of the regiment with HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and is available for purchase from the site. This military work has been reproduced many times and in various journals and sold all over the world. More recent DVDs and slide shows, with music, have been made with my current regiment, 1 Highlanders, 4th Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland who were based in Fallingbostel in Germany. These are also available for sale.

Interested in some nice glamour pictures? Something you can look back on in the years to come? Then look no further. Get yourself all dolled up for a night at Studio 13 in Renfrew, or on location outdoors in Glasgow Nights. Well worth it to look back on in the years to come!

Some of my training work was funded by various voluntary bodies including the European Union, Grants for All, Scottish Arts Council and local CPPs. I owe a vote of thanks to all those who have assisted over the years, and seen the potential. I am currently still undertaking public sector work enabling younger people to get involved in photography by tutoring an Introduction to Photography.

Currently working with the Braehead Clan ,various models and companies to produce image to last a lifetime or more.

Please enjoy browsing the site and I hope some images are to your liking.

I hope you enjoy viewing some of my work as much as I enjoyed taking the pictures. Glasgow and Scotland, have some beautiful places to visit and have your pictures taken.

Yours aye,

George Monaghan
