Resume
Lindsay started his photography career aged 17, trained by Jim Grierson and Ian Campbell,
two commercial photographers that he will always be indebted too. The traditional skllls
they handed down, were honed by Lindsay and still to this day are his most prized asset. 

As a young photographer he immediately found the avenue for his creativity and his life.
Spending the first months being trained in 'darkroom skills' before even being let loose with
a camera, Hand printing giant enlargements, and the skills of wet mounting. The largest
prints some 15'x25' for the Post Office HQ in Edinburgh. Then assisting on high end
advertising campaigns to studio pack shots. Every assignment to Lindsay though, was being
absorbed as his experience grew.

His photographic encounters reads like a who's who alone. Having photographed every
Prime Minister since Callaghan, Royalty, Musicians and Personalities. Industrial subjects
taken from atop tower cranes, hanging out of helicopters, to the bowels of nuclear
submarines. Experiences which Lindsay thrived on and still appreciates to this day.

During his 'apprenticeship' he was entrusted to capture historic images of Glasgow's
underground railway before its modernisation. Whilst head photographer at a Clydeside
shipyard his images recorded the traditions of shipbuilding now long gone. Documentary 
work which years later culminated in commissions from the New York Times to cover subjects 
from drug abuse to the Edinburgh International Festival.

Lindsay's first exhibition was a Multi Vision installation during the Edinburgh Festival in 1976.
Also a gifted musician, he wrote and recorded the soundtrack to accompany his imagery
depicting 'creation'.

Establishing his own studios Strawberry Productions in the late 70's, he created one of the 
most respected studios in the Country. There he specialised in photography for the food and
drink industry, product and fashion photography, special effects photography (before
computer imaging). From these studios creating imagery for National and International
advertising campaigns and clients. 

Having the vision to see where trends were heading his creativity was foremost, whether
working with advertising agencies, art directors, designers or direct clients each image
created was crafted specifically to 'speak'. Award winning brochures and annual reports for
some of the largest companies in the UK followed, establishing his art and experience
alongside his personality and character as a trusted and creative image maker.

Lindsay would always find time to pursue his passion for landscape photography. This
dedication to his personal art led to a diversion whereby he established his own Fine Art
gallery in Edinburgh. With his fine art black and white photography now becoming saught
after, his work was recognised by the Eastman House in the USA, the worlds pre-eminant
museum of photography. This relationship with the Eastman House led to his joint exhibition
alongside the work of Ansel Adams. Personally seen as the pinnacle of his achievements and
recognition of his standing as one of the UK's finest landscape photographers.

He still acknowledges the two men that initially taught him the skills required for his art and
their encouragement. Having the eyes to see so that others can witness what they dont see
is regarded as a privilage by Lindsay.
