About Louise Mallan Photography

Louise Mallan Photography

From as early as I can remember I have always been creative and a very visual person - often seeing the light and beauty in things that perhaps others had missed. My love for photography began when I was a teenager on the beaches of Ibiza. My Mum purchased a small disposable camera and I was entrusted with it to capture our two weeks in the sun. My mum got a little more than she bargained for when she developed the 36 exposures, I had spent the whole time trying to capture the waves crashing into the rocks and the glorious sunsets and seascapes. Even though she was slightly annoyed that there wasn't one family shot to be found (Woops!) I must have done something right because by the end of the week she booked me onto my first photography course.

After high school I went to Herriot - Watt University and achieved a degree in Textiles and Fashion Design with a major in Print Design. I loved spending my days in the print room in my goggles and lab coat getting covered in dye. When I graduated my career (as it often does in life) took off in a different direction and I spent ten years working for one of Scotland's top Jewelers. I never really forgot how it felt though holding a camera in my hand, the sound of the shutter as you try to capture that perfect moment in time and the nervous excitement waiting to see the results. However, many years passed and it wasn't until my better half bought me my first digital camera that truly rekindled my passion for photography. After a little dabble with my new little friend I decided to retrain at night school to develop my skills and have attained a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Photography.

Photography to me is like magic and science combined, technically everything has to be right to get a great photograph but there is a moment of true magic that allows me to capture something special - the perfect moment as a groom holds his breath nervously waiting for his bride, the way a new Mother holds her baby discovering that true unconditional love really does exist or maybe that amazing moment in a giggle from a small child who laughs like they might never be able to stop.

These moment don't last forever, they're over in the blink of an eye but with a small click through my camera lens you can keep it with you forever.
