Throughout lockdown, I tried to entertain friends and family with my photos. After a while, I thought that I should give my border collie a break from being a model so I bought myself a macro lens – a lens for taking close up or magnified images, and started taking my Totie Photies.

Why ‘Totie Photies’, you ask? Well, ‘totie’ is a term, used affectionately, here in Scotland for ‘tiny’. ‘Photies’ is Scottish vernacular for ‘photos’.

In December 2020, the BBC ran featured some of my Totie Photies online and on TV and radio, spawning a huge amount of media coverage (TV, radio, newspapers and magazine articles) around the world.

2021 continued to be a very exciting year. Highlights included my Totie Photies being featured on BBC Scotland: Susan Calman’s Happy Space and Channel 4: Grayson Perry’s Art Club (episode on food art).

2022 is proving to be even more exciting!  One of my Totie Photies ('Puppy Love') was picked by Grayson Perry to appear in his national exhibition, Grayson Perry's Art Club,  opening at Midlands Arts Centre in December.  Also,  there is now a selection of Totie Photie greeting cards available for purchase via Moonpig - one of the leading online greeting card platforms.

There is a heap of other exciting news, currently under wraps. Watch this space or why not  follow me on instagram @jacki_gordon ?

As you’ll see, my Totie Photies are available to purchase via this website, and prints of these are now in the homes and offices of customers in Scotland, the wider UK, Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand. A BIG THANK YOU to all of those who have bought these, and especially to those who have fed back to me how much they love them.

My Totie Photos are intended to make you smile. I hope they do.
