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.

 
 

Carolyn Baxter Dresses

Following on from my last post, I have finally finished editing the photos from the shoot at No.12 Picardy Place. Danielle is flawless to photograph, but I think the entire team who contributed to this shoot is due credit (MAU = Suzanne Craig, hair = Christina Frampton, dress design = Carolyn Baxter).

With the new year approaching, I have been thinking a lot about photography and how I feel about it. Every year I am picking up my camera less. I’ve become quite lazy. Lazy with how often I shoot and lazy with how I shoot. This needs to change.

 
 

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.

 
 

The Simple As Milk Boys

James, David and Scott (the talent behind Simple as Milk) are spending a few days working from Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh. With them being less than an hour away, it was a given I had to meet them for lunch. We had burgers in lettuce buns from Ketchup (I can’t believe we had the willpower to substitute bread for lettuce), and then I had the daunting task of taking James – who is a coffee snob – for a decent cup of caffeine. We hit up Avenue G on Byres Road. He seemed pleased. I then introduced them to Indie while we strolled around Botanic Gardens, which – in their words – was the only pretty place they’d seen in Glasgow! I only get to see their faces when attending the odd conference, so it was nice to spend an afternoon with them.

On an unrelated note, I’m inching closer to 1000 ‘likes’ on Facebook. If you want to keep up to date with my photos via Facebook, give me a ‘like’!

 
 

Elisha Clarke’s Monsoon Weekend In Glasgow

This weekend saw my friend, Elisha, visit from Ireland. Elisha is a fellow photographer, so I had planned on taking a lot of photos. Sadly, whenever I have a friend travel a significant distance to visit me, Glasgow decides it’s monsoon season. But any weekend I get to eat at Tribeca, Lebowskis and St Louis – and wash it down with a coffee from Artisan Roast – is a good one. Elisha also let me use her 50mm ƒ1.2 for most of the weekend!

 
 

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.
