The photographers

Award winning photographers Ross Gillespie and Tricia Malley are among Scotland’s most experienced and insightful photographers. Portraits are their business as well as creative images for magazines, annual reports, websites, publishing and education.  They have worked together for almost 20 years under the name of broad daylight and have an instinctive eye for capturing the character and personality behind their subject. Tricia’s background as a documentary photographer combined with Ross’s background as an illustrator has created an almost unique collaboration which allows art to frequently and successfully mimic life in a seriously powerful fashion. They have an enormous capacity for empathy with their subjects and as a result get well below the superficial. As a result, their portraits tell more than just the immediate story, broad daylight simply understands that a picture can tell more than a thousand words.

Their work is held by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery in London.

We have recently enjoyed producing imagery for publishing houses, education, magazines and high profile corporate clients. Our portfolio ranges from bespoke portraiture to documentary work. If you would like to view a full portfolio please contact us.
