Hello my name is Craig Halkett I have been a professional photographer for some time mainly working in newspaper and magazines.
I have worked for many years in Newspaper photography, starting in the Dark Rooms in the Scottish Daily Record in 1968, I progressed to working with my local Newspaper, the Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser covering local news and sport, I also provided photography for the Airdrieonians Match Day Programme. Moving on in 1981 to the Glasgow Evening Times I covered all aspects of photography including the Lockerbie Disaster and the Miner's Strike. In 1991 I moved back to the Scottish Daily Record as Sports Photographer covering World Cup Finals, European Championships, World Title Boxing, Open Golf Championships and other major sporting events as well as the normal SPL football.
I decided to leave the Daily Record in December 2008 to go Freelance. In my many years of newspaper photography I have been very successful winning the Scottish Sports Photographer of the Year an unprecedented six times and British Sports Picture of the Year two years in a row.
In the past few years since becoming Freelance alongside the usual football, rugby and other sporting events I have become involved in Construction photography and events, Portraits and Pet Photography and Weddings. A selection of these photo’s you will see on my web site.
If you have a requirement for any type of photography work then please give me a call, I am sure I can give you a very competitive quote and I know I will provide a top quality service you will be more than happy with. I am happy to discuss any job no matter how big or small.
