"I've known and worked with Stewart Cunningham of Great Scot Photography for over thirty five years" says journalist and broadcaster Tom Morton, "and I can safely say that when it comes to music and media photography, he's really quite good.

"Joking aside, Stewart has produced the goods for publication under some of the most trying circumstances imaginable. Established rock stars are sometimes the easiest people to photograph. And the hardest to do well. Stewart's done them all. The Stones, INXS, Proclaimers, Tom Petty, John Martyn, Simple Minds, Big Country, Eurythmics, Dire Straits, Wet Wet Wet, Richard Thompson... even Take That when they were a boy band.

"But  snotty youngsters who think they're already gods and goddesses can be the most difficult to work with. Yet time and time again I've watched Stewart produce pictures that they -and their management - could be proud of.

"Live concert photography is incredibly difficult to do well, but I think I can guarantee that using Stewart means a guaranteed, high quality result. We used to work, for the old weekly Melody Maker in the pre-digital days, to very tight guidelines that required each shot to be perfect, without any way of knowing what the results in the darkroom would be like. There was no room for error, with a Red Star overnight rail delivery the only way of getting finished prints to the presses on time. And Stewart never failed."

"Stewart and I did stories together for the Herald, the Scotsman, Melody Maker and many other papers and magazines. Bands, either in live reviews or as features and interviews, were always great because Stewart really loves music. it was always more than a job for him. It was a passion. And these days, even at his advanced age, it still is! the pictures he's taken recently of the likes of Edwyn Collins or young bands like The Fortunate Sons playing with a legend like Terry Reid  are really superb."
