Award-Winning Photo-Journalist Brings Hollywood Glamour to Scotland with Launch of Digital Wedding Photography Service

Award-winning photo-journalist Alistair Devine has launched a dedicated digital wedding photography service offering blushing brides and grooms throughout Scotland the chance to be photographed by the snapper who has shot such Hollywood Royalty as Sophia Loren, Elisabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Sir Antony Hopkins and John Travolta.

Speaking of his new venture, Mr Devine said, “Having executed a number of celebrity wedding commissions over recent years, as well as covering weddings for Hello! in Scotland, England and Italy, I have decided to offer a digital wedding photography service for the first time with an online service.

 “Every bride and groom deserves to have a memento of them looking their very best on the biggest day of their lives, a photographic album that they can treasure for posterity. I hope that my wealth of experience photographing all kinds of celebrities up close and personal – from soap, sports and pop stars to legends of the stage and screen – will add a touch of Hollywood glamour to give their photographs an extra special quality.”

Over the last few years Mr Devine has photographed such well-known Scottish celebrities as: Sean Connery, Billy Connolly, Ewan MacGregor, Robbie Coltrane, Lulu, Nicola Benedetti and many more as part of a world-wide exhibition (France, Japan, China, Russia, USA, London and Scotland) for the Incorporation of Goldsmiths in Edinburgh.

He has executed an extensive list of one-to-one celebrity shoots, including Rod Steiger, Jane Russell, David Duchovny, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard, Rod Stewart, Sting and Alice Cooper.

Amongst Devine’s principal clients are regular colour supplements for The Daily Mail, News of the World, Sunday People, Hello! and programme stills and celebrity shoots for BBC and STV. He has photographed for SPT, MJM, ITV, advertising and PR agencies and woman’s magazines. He has also been on the cover of both Amateur and Professional Photographer and had two Scottish exhibitions and one world-wide.
