BRIAN SUTHERLAND – PHOTOGRAPHER

I worked with Brian in the latter stages of the construction of the Queensferry Crossing, the £1.4 billion new bridge across the Firth of Forth opened in 2017. Brian is a first class photographer, always able to see a different and exciting angle or composition while also listening carefully to what I, as the client, wanted.

Whether asked to take close-up, technical shots of particular construction activities or wider, artistic views of the enormous and beautiful structure emerging above the waters of the Forth, Brian’s photographs were simply stunning, both in their technical expertise and the way in which he captured the sheer majesty and scale of the scene, setting the new bridge in its wider geographical and meteorological locations. Required on occasions to be on-site late at night or early in the dawn, Brian always successfully captured the scene required. Furthermore, he frequently returned to site on his own accord to capture particular views or lighting conditions which was very much appreciated. His photographs of the Royal Opening Ceremony performed by Her Majesty the Queen in September 2017 were easily the best taken by any of the many photographers present on the day.

Without exception, Brian’s photographs were of a consistently high quality and were hugely admired by everybody involved in the construction of the bridge. They were used in countless presentations and other publications produced by the construction team. Most prominently, they feature in “The Queensferry Crossing: Vision to Reality”, the 240 page official account of the design and construction of the new bridge which was written by myself and published in late 2017. Brian’s photographs complement the text perfectly and are the highlight of the book.

I have no hesitation in recommending Brian wholeheartedly as an outstanding photographer who always met – indeed exceeded - our brief first time, every time. Over and above that, Brian is an absolute delight to work with, possessing boundless patience and a great sense of fun. It really is a joy working with him.

by his attention to detail and his utmost professionalism.
   I would not hesitate to recommend Brian for your photography

requirements either for corporate or personal photography.

         WILLIE WHEELANS
Brian as an individual is a gentleman who in my experiences with has always been willing to 
offer advice to help me improve my photography .  For someone to interrupt their own work and 
take time to offer advice ,to help me achieve the shot, that is brilliant, in my book.
    You only have to look at his work, to realise that you're in the company of a great 
            photographer who knows his craft.
