Lager giants say cheers to skilled snap­per Ste­vie

Ten­nent’s link-up

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Ian Bunting

Coat­bridge pho­tog­ra­pher Ste­vie Spiers has ev­ery rea­son to raise a glass and toast stun­ning success af­ter link­ing up with one of Scot­land’s big­gest brew­ers.

Lager giants Ten­nent’s were so wowed by the 53-year-old’s hugely pop­u­lar “My Lit­tle Peo­ple” project – which sees Ste­vie place tiny rail­way fig­ures along­side props and lo­ca­tions and cap­ture images – they snapped up his ser­vices.

Ste­vie, who sells the “My Lit­tle Peo­ple” pho­tos ev­ery week­end at Glas­gow’s Mer­chant Square with fi­ancée Bren, ex­plained: “Bren and I were ap­proached by Ten­nent’s shop man­ager Ross Pol­lock to see if we would be in­ter­ested in creat­ing some images us­ing the Ten­nent’s brand.

“It was a no- brainer to be in­volved with one of Scot­land’s big­gest brands and hugely ex­cit­ing to get to work on the project.

“I cre­ated five fun images and Bren and I pre­sented them to Ten­nent’s for ap­proval for us to use within our busi­ness.

“Ten­nent’s were de­lighted with the results and gave us full per­mis­sion to use their brand in our ‘My Lit­tle Peo­ple’ ma­te­rial.”

As well as sell­ing the Ten­nent’sthemed images them­selves, Ste­vie and Bren will also cash in from the lager-mak­ers giv­ing it pride of place in their Glas­gow-based brew­ery.

Ste­vie said: “Ten­nent’s are go­ing to stock the images within their shop at the brew­ery in the near fu­ture as they are spend­ing £ 1 mil­lion on their shop and brew­ery tour ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The man­ag­ing di­rec­tor is now a fan of our work and has or­dered many signed framed prints since view­ing them.”

“My Lit­tle Peo­ple” images are also avail­able from Gar­rion Bridges An­tiques and Gar­den Cen­tre in Over­town and Shop H in the Stir­ling Ar­cade; visit mylit­tlepeo­ple­pho­tog­ra­phy on Face­book to find out more.
