JEWELLER  and gemmologist Alistir Wood Tait is known across Scotland and beyond for having a legendary eye for detail.alistir wood tait

As a specialist in antiques and fine jewellery, Alistir spends a great deal of time looking through a loupe magnifying eyepiece to establish the quality and authenticity of valuable pieces.

He applied a similar standard of scrutiny to the PR photographs we provided for his Edinburgh business during an incredibly fruitful public relations partnership, with a wide range of pictures bringing extensive media coverage (see the short video, below).

Dozens of images also appeared in editions of the glossy Precious Scotland printed newsletter which we regularly produced for his shop, Alistir Wood Tait Antique and Fine Jewellery.

Those colourful and informative newsletters were posted out to Alistir’s loyal army of customers keeping them in touch with all the news and goings-on at the Rose Street jewellery boutique. They  also featured stunning close up images of many of the most beautiful pieces he had for sale.

Alistir never ceased to be amazed at how our expert photography helped the media to latch on to the many stories we dug up including:

That treasure trove of images includes pictures which are now almost a decade old – yet they still deliver substantial website traffic every month – driving value while paying for themselves over and over again.
