Tez Watson has run his design and print business for many years. Formerly based at Nairn harbour, he moved to Logie Steading in early 2017 and continues to specialise in unique commissions, as well as general printing.
Tez has lived and worked in Moray/Nairn since 1979 when he was first posted to RAF Kinloss where he served as an avionic technician until 1997 part from a break in the mid-80’s when he served in Germany. After his RAF career Tez joined the staff at Gordonstoun School for six years – for the last two years of which he was the School’s graphic designer. He was then hired to manage an award-winning professional photographic lab – C S Boyne in Nairn until the takeover by Jessops when he made the move to self employment.
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. You’ll perhaps see his red 1975 MG roadster parked at Logie now and again. Likewise his bike might just be propped against his premises, he has undertaken a few long-distance rides over the years, with at least another one being planned.
You might also see (or rather hear) him performing as Tez is a tenor in the Sing Moray Community Choir or you might witness him reading his poetry at a forWORDS writing group event. He’s a versatile and adaptable man.
Tez and his wife, Sandra, also run a bed and breakfast from their modern home on the southern outskirts of Forres. They have a double room and a king size room available with a large shared private bathroom. Situated on a quiet street and just a short walk into either the local countryside or into the town centre – cyclists, walkers, fishers and pipers – all welcome.
