Lindsay started his photography career aged 17, trained by Jim Grierson and Ian Campbell, two commercial photographers that he will
always be indebted too. The traditional skllls they handed down, were honed by Lindsay and still to this day are his most prized asset.
 
As a young photographer he immediately found the avenue for his creativity and his life. Spending the first months being trained in
'darkroom skills' before even being let loose with a camera, Hand printing giant enlargements, and the skills of wet mounting. The
largest prints some 15'x25' for the Post Office HQ in Edinburgh. Then assisting on high end advertising campaigns to studio pack
shots. Every assignment to Lindsay though, was being absorbed as his experience grew.

His photographic encounters reads like a who's who alone. Having photographed four Prime Minister, Royalty, Musicians and
Personalities. Industrial subjects taken from atop tower cranes, hanging out of helicopters, to the bowels of nuclear submarines.
Experiences which Lindsay thrived on and still appreciates to this day.

During his 'apprenticeship' he was entrusted to capture historic images of Glasgow's underground railway before its modernisation.
Whilst head photographer at a Clydeside shipyard his images recorded the traditions of shipbuilding now long gone. Documentary work
which years later culminated in commissions from the New York Times to cover subjects from drug abuse to the Edinburgh
International Festival.

Lindsay's first exhibition was a Multi Vision installation during the Edinburgh Festival in 1976. Also a gifted musician, he wrote and
recorded the soundtrack to accompany his imagery depicting 'creation'.

Establishing his own studios Strawberry Productions, he created one of the most respected studios in the Country. There he
specialised in photography for the food and drink industry, product and fashion photography, special effects photography (before
computer imaging). From these studios creating imagery for National and International advertising campaigns and clients.
 
Having the vision to see where trends were heading his creativity was foremost, whether working with advertising agencies, art
directors, designers or direct clients each image created was crafted specifically to 'speak'. Award winning brochures and annual
reports followed, establishing his art and experience alongside his personality and character as a trusted and creative image maker.

Throughout this time Lindsay would always find time to pursue his passion for landscape photography. This dedication to his personal
art led to a diversion whereby he established his own Fine Art gallery in Edinburgh. With his fine art black and white photography now
becoming saught after, his work was recognised by the Eastman House in the USA, the worlds pre-eminant museum of photography.
This relationship with the Eastman House led to his joint exhibition alongside the work of Ansel Adams. Personally seen as the
pinnacle of his achievements and recognition of his standing as one of the UK's finest landscape photographers.

He still acknowledges the two men that initially taught him the skills required for his art and their encouragement. Having the eyes to
see so that others can witness what they dont see is regarded as a privilage by Lindsay.
