Welcome to Paisley Photographs, I first started photographing parts of Paisley in the late 1980’s and my aim is still the same today as it was when I first started – to build up a collection of photographs that buddies all over the world could look back and reminisce of old times in future years, after all we all enjoy looking back on these and if no one does it now then there’s no one doing this for future generations to look back upon.
One of the most important bits is for Paisley Photographs is never to seek or apply for funding to cover any of its costs or equipment, I believe that if you enjoy doing something so much as a hobby you should not be seeking payment for costs or equipment, the page is forever grateful however for those who have contacted and donated old equipment or photographs they have been clearing out etc and helping increase the page archive by doing this.
I also collect Paisley items and old photographs relating to Paisley’s history and have one of the largest collections of local postcards – the collection of these has grown so much its the largest known collection in the world of Paisley postcards in 2022/3 these will start to go on-line.
You may regularly see my photos reaching the news. In the last few years i have provided up to the minute photos to BBC Scotland on-line news pages, provided photographs to STV website as well as video footage that’s made the tea-time headline news on more than one occasion, provided up to the minute photographs to The Herald, The Sun, Paisley Daily Express, The Gazette and The Sunday Post in some cases have made the front page, of course you can always get our latest updates on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Twitter.
