Meet the team
The core team of four at McAteer Photograph are often supported by a much larger team. As and when our projects require, we bring on board a range of talented artists from associate photographers and production and site crew, to our brilliant admin support team.

My first love is architecture, a passion I turned into my business photographing and filming amazing architectural projects from the ground up. I trained in the days of the darkroom, apprenticed aged 17 to an industrial photographer, honing my skills until 2002 when I formed McAteer Photograph on the key principle that we create high-end images at a realistic cost – this still holds true today. But it’s not just architectural photography I do. I’m very fortunate to undertake a broad scope of commissions and I’m obsessive about ensuring I get outstanding shots in every shoot. Every day is different and I enjoy nothing better than collaboration with genuinely talented innovators, free thinkers and creative risk-takers whose vision I can interpret, capture and present in my own unique way.
I’m McAteer Photo’s second photographer as well as assisting Alan on many of McAteer Photograph’s photo, video and timelapse shoots. The photo journey doesn’t end inside the camera: all of our commissions are meticulously edited to provide a print and publish-ready product to our clients and I undertake much of the post-production which involves editing and managing the thousands of images and hours of footage that we take every week. We are a very busy photography house so smooth and efficient workflow is very important to help us deliver a quality product and service while meeting our clients’ often short deadlines. I also organise the studio for our product and portrait shoots and keep us up-to-date with trends, new software and processes which, in this digital age, is fast-paced and ever-evolving.

I’m as likely to be producing a lifestyle photo shoot or discussing contracts, as managing an image library or illustrating a website. I run the company and manage many of our large client accounts. Our clients trust us to deliver a high quality and reliable service and I really enjoy the longstanding relationships we have built as a result of this. I handle many of the non-photography services we provide which include helping clients to shape a creative brief, managing their image libraries or consulting on their in-house photography workflow. I love my varied and creative role and get great satisfaction out of producing shoots. I really enjoy the buzz of building and managing a team of production professionals. Overseeing a photo shoot from start to finish and seeing a delighted client return to us time and again makes me very happy.

I’m McAteer’s image assistant. Having graduated from Glasgow School of Art in Communication Design, I have a passion for how images are presented in this contemporary age. I manage McAteer Photo’s in-house and online image library which contains tens of thousands of images. I’m fastidious about organisation so cataloguing with the correct keywording and metadata is right up my street. It allows us to look for images quickly and ready them for distribution to commissioning clients and offer as stock for sale on a rights-managed or royalty-free basis. I illustrate our website and research new ways of presenting our contents online so that clients can find exactly what they are looking for when they are looking for it.
