Tez Watson

Cartographer

Tez Watson has run his design and print business for many years. Based in Logie Steading he specialises in unique commissions, as well as general printing.

He’s been interested in photography since school when the magic of an image appearing in a dish of chemicals fascinated him and you will see some of his works for sale in his shop as well as on the Iolaire pages of this website. Tez also has a long standing interest in mapmaking – that comes across in some of his work – as well as a passion for old cars and cycling.
