Greig Millar

It’s been a while since I shot just for fun. I’d forgotten what it feels like. I asked Greig if I could photograph him after watching Into The Wild, noticing a distinct resemblance between Greig and Emile Hirsch. Greig isn’t used to being in front of the camera, not that you could tell—it was a very natural shoot and he didn’t mind the occasional stares as we scouted the Merchant City for good spots to shoot. Maybe that’s because he’s a musician and is actually an attention whore.

 
 

The Aberdeen Seaside

It isn’t often I get to attend a conference and stop off at the seaside on the way home. Rab and I road tripped back to Glasgow/Stirling from Aberdeen and stopped off at a tiny village called Stonehaven. Unfortunately we couldn’t find a place to park (seaside town + sun = no parking), but I just had to photograph this limitless expanse of sea dwarfing the yacht.

 
 

Coffee + Content

Coffee and content. That is how I spend my time with Mark. And talking about our fitness goals. This evening, Mark and I met in Princes Square for a brief catch up before his gym session. He was pulling funny faces.

 
 

Carolyn, The Dress Designer

My sister stopped by my apartment today, in between dropping one of her dresses off at a shoot with Rebecca Fox, and a massage I booked for her 30th birthday. We went for ice cream. Well, Carolyn did. I had just ran 8K so was behaving myself… for about 5 minutes.

 
 

Another Year, Another Industry Conf

This time last year I was a nervous wreck. I had taken to the stage in Newcastle for my first public speaking gig. I’m back at Industry for another year, but not as a speaker – instead enjoying the conference from an attendee’s perspective.

I particularly enjoyed Greg Hoy‘s talk, ‘Work Is The Magic Bullet’, which centred around work ethic (funny timing as work ethic has been a topic playing heavily on my mind as of late), and Paull Young, who talked about inspiring people with beautiful design and stories through the charity he works with, charity: water. So good! Thanks for another great year, Gavin.

P.S. It is a bit of a tradition I photograph Jack …

 
 

Iona Barker at Glasgow Photo Walk

A quick post before I head to Newcastle for this year’s Industry Conf. Glasgow Photo Walk attendees have been adding their photos from the weekend to the Flickr group. Here are mine. Bye.

 
 

Snow White

One of the most common frustrations I find amongst photographers is not having a subject to practice portrait photography with. Today was yet another Glasgow Photo Walk, and this time I hired a model, Iona, to pose for the class.

It was a tough gig; the sun – as nice as it is to see it – causes harsh light, and Botanic Gardens – the location of our shoot – was heaving with people (“taps aff”, as we say in Glasgow).

I hope the attendees enjoyed themselves, and I can’t wait to see their photos appearing on the Flickr group over the next few days. If anything, today made me aware of my own shooting style as I was …

 
 

Casa Morada

“Casa Morada is the culmination of a personal and professional dream of Eva Serrano, a Spanish Interior Designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland…” Eva gave us free roam of her beautiful interiors shop last month, the perfect location to photograph my sister’s dresses. I am noticing many more flaws with my photos these days, which is a good thing, although I wish I could catch these flaws before it comes to looking at my photos on a big screen. This is all part of learning process, I guess. Regardless, beautiful models, stunning location and glamorous dresses.

Joshua Porter

On Sunday I followed Joshua around on his shoot with Adam. I took a bunch of behind the scenes photos of Joshua being a pro, which you will see… eventually. Afterwards I got a glimpse into how Joshua edits his photos, which is an interesting insight. I should watch other photographer’s process more often.

 
 

Classic Car

Another classic car spotted in Ruthven Lane, although the model escapes me (I am not a car enthusiast, they are just pretty to photograph).
