Jamie Simpson is a photographer based in Scotland.  Now freelance after 15 years working as a staff photographer with Scotland’s top writers, journalists, designers and editors telling and creating stories using engaging, powerful and innovative photography at the Herald titles.  

He was tempted to tell you in intimate details how he got to this point, then realised that might take away some of the magic and mystery.

So to keep it short and sweet – he lives to take pictures, owns some cameras and his clients include:

Jamie is a first-class professional whose experience shines through. He always works imaginatively to bring subjects and stories to life, making a real creative difference to PR and media campaigns. Always easy to work with, he relates well with everyone he photographs, whether in the boardroom, on the shopfloor – or with clients’ customers on the streets. I would highly recommend working with him

Chris Story

Senior Associate, Message Matters Agency

Jamie is a true professional who completely understands the art of photography.  I worked with Jamie on many stories and he added a dimension that I could never do through words alone and is a complete professional.

Stacey Mullen

Assistant Editor, Glasgow Times

If you need a photographer who is creative and knows what will work then I can’t think of anyone with more experience.  Jamie did numerous jobs at Glasgow Airport and his work was always excellent. He makes people feel relaxed and he takes his time in setting up a shot, both of which result in great photographs.

Brian McClean

Director of Communications and Sustainability, AGS Airports

Jamie is an excellent photographer. He was a colleague of mine for many years and I have no hesitation in recommending him and his work

Magnus Llewellin
