Andy Weston (92-97) of Weston Sports Marketing invited James along to join him at the Scottish Squash Doubles Championships on Sunday 16 July 2017.
'We were there to shoot the event which was great fun; a few of the images were actually published in various regional papers.'
Here, Andy gives us an update on the day he spent with James:
'It was a pleasure to work with James at the Scottish Squash Doubles Championships at Scotstoun, Glasgow.
I noticed that James was looking for some work experience and I was happy to help out a Merchistonian; I knew it would be a good decision.
It was a busy day but he went about his work in a business-like and professional manner. He quickly became acquainted with the players and gained their trust when he was taking pictures of them on and off the court which was important.
I am very sure he will be able to forge a successful career in photography and videography and I look forward to working with James in the future.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer and I would be happy to help out other abiding photographers/videographers from Merchiston looking for some work experience.'
