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.

 
 

Coffee, Dumplings And Crabbies

This weekend saw the return of Kiltr‘s street feastival. Not festival, FEASTIVAL. This was my first time visiting, though, and – despite verging on being too busy – Jen and I enjoyed a Dear Green coffee (best in Glasgow) and vegetarian dumplings, washed down with Crabbies. I opted for the spiced orange flavour. I left with a very happy tummy.

 
 

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!

 
 

Video: @hellorogue Post-Processing Techniques

It’s been a while since my last video on post-processing, so I figured I would do another one from my recent set of photos of Ayden. In particular, the shot of Ayden laying on the ground in Autumn, which I’ve given a warm feel and applied a texture to. I’d appreciate your thoughts on this, so leave ’em in the comments!

Remember, there are no rules when it comes to post-processing. Play around, experiment, develop.

 
 

Ayden at Bellahouston Park

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I met this girl. We’ve managed to get pretty close over that year, and I’d now consider Ayden a good friend. She knows my secrets. She also lets me turn a casual hot chocolate and stroll in the park into some kind of photoshoot, because, admittedly, it has been a while since I’ve really shot for myself. I want to get back into it, and this impromptu session reminded me just how much I love having my camera by my side.

 
 

Kelvingrove Cafe Cocktails

Joanna and I met for lunch and cocktails at Kelvingrove Cafe, a fairly new addition to Argyll Street. There seem to be many new places popping up along Argyll Street, which is good for me as I live so close and like to eat. Anyway, back to Joanna…

Jo set up Toad’s Caravan – a collaborative work space in Ruthven Lane – which is where I now work and how we met. She’s talented, ambitious and very hard working – my kind of woman! It was fun to chat over our cocktails, which were served alongside a plate of sliders. I had a mac and cheese slider, which was kind of weird, but definitely in a good way.

 
 

Ryan and Beth

When Ryan and Beth first approached me to photograph their wedding, I remember Ryan telling me it was going to be “really cool”. I wasn’t quite prepared for how cool. I think this is every wedding photographers’ dream; quirky venue (a teepee in the English countryside), beautiful couple, plentiful emotion amongst family and friends, and a striking attention to detail. It was difficult for me to whittle my photos from the day into a concise blog post, there was just so much to capture. I’m eternally grateful to Ryan and Beth for giving me the opportunity to be there, to be a part of their day. It was a wedding I’ll never forget.

 
 

Summer

I blinked and I missed it. I’m struggling to keep my eyes open as I sit here typing this. The right one is twitching sporadically and I have a headache. Weekends are non-existent, and each day is indistinguishable to the next as it involves the same thing – WORK! It sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m actually not. I’m tired, but I’m incredibly grateful for how kind the summer has been to me in regards to my career. I’ve landed some amazing work, made a wee bit of money, and been pushed well and truly out of my comfort zone. It’s forced me to look at how I handle my workflow, and juggle both photography and my big girl’s job. …

 
 

Afternoon Tea at Mar Hall

It was my gran’s 81st birthday a couple of weeks ago. I presented her with a list of birthday options, including dinner at a nice restaurant and go-karting. A knee operation didn’t stop my gran from zealously choosing the latter, despite me having actually listed it as a joke. I managed to talk her into afternoon tea at Mar Hall instead, which we finally did today. Maybe we’ll do go-karting next year, gran.

Anyway, afternoon tea at Mar Hall has become my favourite afternoon tea to date. The coffee was good, the chairs comfy, and the cakes brought to you in a doggy bag if you couldn’t manage to scoff them, which we couldn’t. Surprisingly. Oh, and the company was …

 
 

Ben Susskind

This is Ben. He sits near me in Toad’s Caravan. He looks like the werewolf on his t-shirt. My biggest fear as a child was werewolves and I’d often have nightmares about them, but Ben doesn’t scare me.
