Location Collection

Now that you've booked your shoot, it's time to choose your perfect location. Here are some of my favourite routes in Edinburgh.

If you'd like to shoot at a location that isn't featured in my collection, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am always happy to accommodate when possible.

Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh

Wander through the lush greenery of the old gardens that stretch the length of Princes Street.  This haven in the heart of the shopping district is filled with beautiful backdrops.  Soak up the flowing Ross Fountain, bask in the seasonal flowers, take in the staggering views to Edinburgh Castle, and climb the steps to Scott Monument.

The Old Town, Edinburgh

Meet at Edinburgh's busiest thoroughfare, the Royal Mile, named after its tradition as a processional route for kings and queens throughout the centuries.  Walk in the footsteps of Royals past along the cobbled streets and dark closes, all the while surrounded by rambling architecture.  Circle round the medieval St Giles Cathedral (it looks great 360!), before heading to the colourful Victoria Street.  Packed with charming shops that wind round in a satisfying curve, it's easy to see where Diagon Alley from Harry Potter was based on.  End the session up the stunning Vennel steps, a perfect vista to Edinburgh Castle.  The flight of stairs up it can be a little daunting, but this hidden gem is worth it!

Calton Hill, Edinburgh

Calton Hill is one of the most popular visiting spots in Edinburgh and it's easy to see why.  Atop this UNESCO World Heritage Site you'll find multiple monuments and breathtaking views to Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh Castle, and the North Sea.  It's home to the old City Observatory, which has since been reopened as the Collective,a centre for contemporary art.  This circular route is the perfect way to absorb the city from above, just be prepared to embrace the elements.

Stockbridge, Edinburgh

Once a village in it's own right, Stockbridge is now very much a part of Edinburgh.  However, it's quaint lanes, traditional shops and friendly community still lends to that village feel.  Stone walls overflow with foliage and the remnants of the old Stockbridge Market entrance give this place charm in abundance.  This route takes you through Circus Lane, past the market shops and along the Water of Leith.  If you want to venture off the beaten track, this picturesque location is the one for you.
