Edinburgh portrait photographer

Hello, I am Malin! I am an Edinburgh based photographer with over 15 years experience offering personal branding photography, portrait photography and family photography.

If I were to describe my photography to you it would be as informal and relaxed. I want to give you images that capture you in the most natural way. Whether it’s new images for your business or a portrait or family shoot, my approach is friendly and lighthearted to help you relax and enjoy your moment in front of the camera.

Originally from Sweden, I have lived in Scotland for some time now. 19 years in fact and counting…. After meeting my Scottish husband during a year in France, it didn’t take me long to join him in Scotland and start my photography studies here in Edinburgh. I have never looked back! I set up Malin Widstrand Photography in 2007 and these days I photograph portrait and personal branding shoots across central Scotland.

When I’m not behind my camera or computer, you will most likely find me pottering in the garden, playing piano or my favourite, out and about with my family. Together we love to explore the countryside we’re so lucky to have on our doorstep, whether we’re on our bikes or out for a walk with our dog Jupp. I love a good concert (although I don’t get the chance to go often enough), a glass of wine and a blether with my friends, mountain-biking, hill-walking, cross-country skiing (when in Sweden), a cheeky whisky with my husband and ooooooh for a good game of ice-hockey!


Welcome again to my website. You can find out all about my photography here on my website and if you have any questions or would like to check availability, get in touch and I will be delighted to chat with you.
