Howe Street Studio

After seventy-three years working from Morningside Road in the South of Edinburgh, the company moved back to a more central base in Howe Street in 1976, but remained there for less than ten years.

Soon after his fatherís death, the Yerbury studio was closed and Trevor began to work from home, advertising in 1990:

Commercial Adult Photographer

Edinburgh Studio

Yerbury studios, opened again in the 1990s.  The company expanded rapidly, specialising in wedding and portrait photography.  

The company traded as Yerbury of Edinburgh, from their four-story studio at East Claremont Street in Edinburgh's New Town.

However,  in 2003 Trevor and Faye Yerbury closed their East Claremont Street studio and moved to West Lothian in order to spend more time on their creative photography.

Scottish Crafts

Trevor Yerbury has been invited to produce a "Citizens III" exhibition for 2004.  He intends to create images for this by travelling around Scotland photographing Scottish characters and country crafts.

This could go on to become a travelling exhibition around Scotland.

Trevor hopes to photograph 300 people.  It will be interesting to see the results.

NOTE:  Since 1990, I have been taking my own series of photographs of Scottish Crafts.  See  Edinburgh at Work and Scotland at Work.


Tartan Sofa

Trevor Yerbury plans to photograph people sitting on a tartan sofa at landmarks around Scotland, beginning in Ullapool May 2004. 

Trevor and Faye Yerbury plan to include the photographs in an exhibition to be staged during the Edinburgh Festival, 2005, then to tour around Scotland.

Much of Trevor's work has been black and white, but all photos in this series will be taken in colour.
