Coos and Ewes by Hamilton Kerr

Surrounded by three beautiful Angus Glen's, Kirriemuir is the ideal location for our photography base. We have been lucky enough to capture some of the local sheep and cattle in various seasons.  All of these photographs and more are available to order from our studio at 2 High Street, Kirriemuir Angus. With various sizes to suit all budgets.

Ewes in Glen Clova.
These curious girls show how dense their wool is in the blowing wind.

These Rams in Clova are posing perfectly beneath this old tree. 
The herringbone patterns of these curled, spiraled horns are 

3 Highland Cows in Glen Prosen, Angus. You can almost hear the middle one Moo!!

Above:  black and white photograph of these cows at Kinordy Nature Reserve. When you remove the colour from these impressive animals, you are drawn to the texture of their coats. So thick, with great fringes over their faces. This group of cattle will definitely feature in future works. 

Inspired by the great painter Joseph Farquharson, Kyle has created this image as an homage to his great works and studies of sheep. His use of light and tone is absolutely inspiring........

I hope you have enjoyed this insight into some of the Coos and Ewes that we have captured. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to enquire about our work. Thanks.

The Black Paintings hosted by Hamilton Kerr

The Black Paintings, by Alan Reid have proved to be anything but dull! With what can only be called a hugely successful opening night, this new collection of oil paintings was very well received and proved to be very sought after.

For many years Alan concentrated mainly on his poetry.  Achieving accolades, including the Arvon International and the National Poetry Awards. It was always a case of either painting or poetry,one tended to cancel out the other.

Recent events however changed the way in which Alan works. Since the passing of his beloved wife Heather, Alan now has found a way to channel his creativity into both his passions. This collection of paintings are coloured by the death of Heather. The images are created from the state of mind, often subconsciously incorporating elements of Kirriemuir.Each and every one is different, and each piece shows a glimmer of light.The choice of colour pallet is very striking, making this exhibition a must see.

Previously Alan has had 5 solo exhibitions in London.  This is the first exhibition of Alan’s work in his home town of Kirriemuir.

The exhibition runs until the 19th June.

Venue: Hamilton Kerr, 2 High Street, Kirriemuir, Angus, DD8 4EY. Tuesday - Saturday 10am-5pm

Property brochure photography by Hamilton Kerr

Selling your property can be a life changing move forward for you and your family.

At Hamilton Kerr, we offer a property photography service that focuses on achieving high quality images of your property which will be used online and in print to produce high quality magazine style marketing brochures to raise your property’s profile for potential buyers.
