Ms Young has been involved in a number of high-profile cases, including those of Peter Tobin, Luke Mitchell and William Beggs – the “limbs in the loch” killer.
She said: “The lawyers’ room at the court was moving from a lovely light-filled room room to a dark basement, and we thought it would be good to have some shots to put on the walls of personal images of people very much in the public eye.”
However, she added that public perceptions can often be inaccurate, saying Donald Findlay QC is a “a very shy individual”.
My Young was given special permission to take the shots in court, where photography is normally banned.
She described Mr Findlay and Dean of Faculty, Gordon Jackson QC, as the “father figures of the criminal bar, senior, grumpy and always batting some legal issue back and forth, Gordon always with his phone and Donald his pipe.”
In one photo, Mr Findlay is pictured in the cell of serial killer Peter Manuel.
Ms Young said: “Donald Findlay is hugely interested in the Manuel story.
“But he is known to be so committed to the client that even after a difficult verdict he will go down and sit with them and ruminate on the verdict. Not everyone does that.
“The job means a lot to everyone and is a big part of their personality.”
