My Sister’s Engaged

My sister’s fiancé, who is a footballer, was meeting with a Glasgow agent about football ‘hings, so it was the perfect opportunity for my sister to stop by the studio and chat about wedding ‘hings. I attend weddings all the time as a photographer, but I can’t wait to be a part of my sister’s wedding. To celebrate their relationship. To dance. To relax. It isn’t for a while yet, but my photographer perspective has already rubbed off on my sister, who has been sending me potential venues based on natural light (yes!).

 
 

First Week Back

I enjoy the first week back at work after the holidays. January is always a busy month, and this year is no exception. I have a project with work to tie up, and the inaugural Glasgow Photo Walk will be kicking off mid-month. My first wedding of the year is this weekend. Based in a remote part of Scotland, I’m looking forward to the scenic drive and overnight stay in a hotel. I also have a birthday to celebrate, although I’m undecided how I want to celebrate it. I’ve recently got back into gaming, so part of me wants to celebrate with a PlayStation 4. Lastly, I’ve been increasing my training this month for a 10 miler in April. I’ve …

 
 

Double Exposure

The MKIII’s in-camera double exposure mode is fun to play with, but difficult to nail. I’ve seen other photographer’s produce amazing results, I definitely want to experiment with it. For now, here’s a double exposure I took when exploring the Highlands.

 
 

Merry Christmas

As always, I am spending Christmas with my family in Inverkip. My family is quite small, comprising of my sister, mother, gran, and my mother’s boyfriend, Phil. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the dogs – they are a huge part of our family, too. My sister and I were walking our dogs this morning, and Malia took a grumpy turn when we headed home.

Merry Christmas! I hope you aren’t having a grumpy Christmas like Malia.

 
 

Wine Tasting

What a civilised afternoon we had. Shawshank and I spent today wine tasting in Peckhams. This basically meant sampling 8 different wines and eating lots of cheese. Oh, and my first mince pie of the season. Afterwards we stopped off at George Square for a mulled wine. I think it’s officially the countdown to Christmas.

 
 

Hamburger Jumper

Ally has a habit of wearing fast food jumpers. I’m already a fan of his chips jumper, and now I’ve arrived to the studio to find him in a hamburger jumper. What’s next? Bacon. I’m hoping bacon.

 
 

Danielle at No.12 Picardy Place

Last weekend, I ventured through to Edinburgh’s boutique hotel, No.12 Picardy Place, to shoot a few dresses from my sister’s new line. My sister works harder than anyone I know, I don’t know where she finds the time to design and launch new dresses. As always, I’m very proud of her and the work she does.

More photos to follow, but I’m super busy with my big girl’s job.

 
 

True West at Citizens Theatre

Two weeks ago I had the privilege of working with Toad’s Caravan on the trailer for True West, a theatre production coming to Citizens Theatre this week. Obviously my role involved photography; shooting the characters in various poses, as well as the props in preparation for Justin and Joanna bringing them to life with their animation. With this being something completely different to what I usually do, I’m very excited to share it!

Watch the trailer and buy tickets to the production.

 
 

Lola

I think the coolest part of working from Toad’s Caravan is that it’s dog friendly. Over the past couple of weeks we’ve had a few dogs stop by to accompany Indie and Frank (the resident pups). One of these dogs was Lola, a friendly Boston Terrier who visited alongside her shyer Boston Terrier bro, Rueben. If you’re a creative freelancer in Glasgow and need a space to work from  – and like dogs – there’s a desk going spare at Toad’s Caravan.

 
 

Beautiful Brittany

Everybody! Look at my beautiful friend, Brittany! We hung out a fair bit this weekend, which meant cocktails and food and shopping. This makes us sound very glamorous, but we’re not. This photo was taken at St Enoch Square, which has the European food market stopping by (much to our surprise, I thought it was around only for Christmas). I tried a few of the different Turkish Delight treats. Mmm!
