Thank you to Richard Douglas who wrote:

A Career in Photography

Francis Caird Inglis

"I was an Edinburgh photographer in the 1950s and 1960s. I worked for FC Inglis in Meuse Lane and then in Dean Street."

Gordon Forbes

"I then went to work for Gordon Forbes at his Argos Studios in Leven Street.  When I turned 21, Gordon gave me two bottles of Asti Spumante and the sack; I was a luxury he could no longer afford.

If he had spent as much time seeking out work as he did drinking coffee and in the dojo, perhaps things might have been different."

Further Career Changes

"I went to work for Willie Fulton at Precision Services in Hill St., servicing AV equipment  -  thence to Edinburgh University's Natural Philosophy Dept. as Physics was still known, still taking photies.

Sundry other University and College posts, a successful foray for 20 or so years as a GP photographer, ending up as a smudger for a local paper.

I have now re-invented myself as a rural woodcarver. Retirement?  What retirement?"

Richard Douglas, Menstrie, Clackmananshire, Scotlnd:  30 April 2016
