Introduction to an Ayrshire Photographer

Hello all! I am an Ayrshire photographer and my name is Lorna. As it’s a new year AND a new website for Lorna Thorburn Photography I wanted to introduce myself!

As an Ayrshire photographer I am based in Saltcoats on the west coast however I travel throughout Scotland. I photograph fantastic couples and lovely families – so this is basically my dream job! In general I take a very candid approach – capturing moments as they happen. And, where possible, I use natural light….well when the Scottish weather allows!.

Although I specialise in weddings and portraits I take the camera everywhere. I love the chance to capture some of the beautiful scenery Scotland has to offer! You will also see a few longer haul trips pop up on blogInstagram and Facebook. I do venture further afield as well – my favourite locations so far are New Zealand and Rome but there are many still on the list.

On a personal front, I am wife to a bike mad husband (and some times second shooter! Thank you Mr T!). I am also and mum to two crazy boxer babies.

I have to confess I cannot start the day without coffee and I do have a “small” shoe and handbag obsession – the prettier and more impractical the better! My favourite colour is blue… favourite season is winter (hello Christmas!!!)……my favourite music is anything cheesy…….my favourite restaurant is hmmmm too many to choose! I love my food!

On a technical front I am a Canon shooter. I was given a EOS 300 as a gift and loved it……although as it was film it was a very steep learning curve! These days I shoot all on digital.
