Iska provided a professional bespoke service from start to finish. She captured our business’ core values, the personality of our trainers and dogs, our branding and the facilities perfectly. The visual impact of Iska’s photography has made a huge impact on both my website and social media. I would very much recommend her to anyone looking to create a professional and personal impression of their business.

I hired Iska to take photos at a live event I was running. The photos were phenomenal, they completely captured the essence of the event, and we’ve been able to use them repeatedly in marking material. I continue to bring Iska into projects I’m involved with and really appreciate her professional, gentle yet assertive approach to our working relationship. She has an incredible ability to find solutions to create the best results. From big public events to animals large and small and those tricky profile shots, Iska really makes you feel at ease.

Understanding your uniqueness is vital for every business or personal brand. As a writer, I find it easy to express it in words, but images are different. Therefore, finding the photographer, who really understands me, was essential. We all have our insecurities when it comes to being in front of the camera, things you’d like to hide, not to showcase. Working with Iska was easy. It put me at ease. I liked the feeling of being prepared. I liked how she is honest and encouraging at the same time. I’ve worked with her three times now, and we always have loads of fun. And it shows. I get a lot of compliments for my photos, and I proudly announce the person behind them.

I could not recommend Iska enough. She photographed our furbaby Ralphie as a puppy and at a year old. It’s hard to convey in words just how beautiful the images that Iska took are! Iska is lovely and easy to get along with, we really gelled with her and have now even booked her for our wedding!

Iska is a fantastic photographer, she made the process great fun from start to finish. I have used her for both equine and dog sessions and the ideas she has are brilliant. Most recently she photographed my German Shepherd Eddie in Aberdeen and the photos are beautiful.

My daughter Tamzin and I had the pleasure of seeing Iska working her magic during our photo session with our horse Buster. We would certainly recommend Iska, she is a very professional and talented photographer, lots of patience too. We just adore the photos she took of our boy Buster.

I recently had some brand photography done with Iska and I cannot recommend her enough. She completely put me at ease in front of the camera and made the whole experience fun. Iska took the time to get to know about myself and my business and as a result the photos completely reflect my message I want to send to potential clients.

Realising that I needed more headshots and images for my website and for marketing materials, it was a no-brainer to contact Iska again. The time frame was tight and Iska went out of her way to accommodate me. It was a chilly day in Tarland but unphased by this Iska managed to capture shots of me outdoors as well as setting up my healing room as a temporary studio!
The collaboration between myself, Iska and my graphics designer worked really well, and the results speak for themselves. Once again a really enjoyable experience with Iska.

Iska is a professional from start to finish and beyond. Her photos are outstanding. Her website where you can get your digital prints is so easy to use. She really cares about her clients. If you are looking to get your business out there then Iska is the lady to choose. Update your social media profile images with a professional photo that others will take seriously, it was the best thing I have done, I am so proud of my profile photos now, thank you Iska, you made me at ease in front of the lens too.

We are delighted with the photos Iska took of our pony they are a treasured keep sake , she was both friendly and professional with great attention to detail and she made us feel at ease. Iska is clearly experienced with animals and knew how to get the best from them and their owners.

Iska had the ultimate challenge photographing my labradors (all five of them) on a snowy day in December. She captured some amazing images which I will now treasure for years to come. It’s clear to see how much time and dedication she puts into her work from the unique quality of her photographs. Extremely professional service who I would highly recommend.
