Blythswood Ladies

On Wednesday night I tagged along to Next’s event at Blythswood Hotel, held in the £1500 a night penthouse suite. The event was intended for fashion bloggers, promoting Next’s Christmas line, but Miss Linny O invited me knowing that I enjoy a canapé or two and can’t turn down a glass of Prosecco. Oh, and my big sister happened to be there, too. Oh, and there was a terrace with a view of the city.

 
 

A Typical Weegie

Shooting at The Barras yesterday reminded me of my love for Glasgow, particularly the funny patter with the Weegies. We attracted a lot of attention while shooting a beautiful model in Carolyn’s dresses, surrounded predominantly by male market traders. I’ll be uploading those photos later in the week, but for now I just wanted to demonstrate what a typical Glaswegian is like. Yep.

 
 

The Scottish Fashion Awards

Yesterday evening, I had my first opportunity to play paparazzi at the Scottish Fashion Awards. It turns out I was way underprepared in my first attempt at photographing the red carpet. Grown men bring stepladders, which gave all 5’6 of me no chance at a decent view. That’s okay, I’ll just frame the VIP’s with shoulders and heads and hats.

Admittedly I didn’t recognise most of the attendees, but this is because I have very little fashion sense and don’t read glossy magazines. I was most excited about seeing Alexa Chung and Karen Gillan, the latter failing to make an appearance when I was there. My sister got her picture taken with Karen, though, as she was attending the actual events.

So yes, what follows are unconventional photos of celebrities and paparazzi shoulders.

 
 

Behind The Scenes: No.12 Picardy Place

Make-up getting done in No.12 Picardy Place, Edinburgh. The room had a shower adjacent the bed, but the shower was a two way see-through mirror (I’m not sure if they have a specific name). All privacy goes out the window (the en-suite toilet had no door), but it was fun to shoot through as I love anything that will give a reflection.

 
 

Prague

Oh hey, I’m in Prague until Sunday, sharing an amazing apartment in the centre with Carolyn (my sister) and Norman (a 60 year old guy with a bear hat). It’s snowy and cold and perfect. The currency is a bit odd, but the architecture is perfect. Tonight we’re going to drink hot wine and admire the lights, but I can’t wait until daylight comes around again so I can take photos.

 
 

Lunch at Lebowskis

Carolyn, my sister, was in Glasgow for meetings with factories to produce her dresses, so we caught up over some lunch at Lebowskis. This place is known for its burgers, and, well, that is what I finally had after many times eating here and opting for the salad. It was delicious, though I couldn’t finish the entire thing (maybe the black pudding sandwiched on top of the burger wasn’t the best idea), and I hated myself after it.

 
 

Moonbeam

An impromptu shot of Abigail Barr modelling my sister’s latest dress design, Moonbeam. I like this dress, it’s a bit different to the floor length evening gowns my sister usually designs. I always love shooting Abigail, so I mentioned to her about setting up another big shoot like last time. Especially as I bit the bullet today and ordered a new lens. *gasp*

Another on my Flickr.

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

We’re back with the next entry in our Bax Street Blog, where we stop people in the street with an interesting style and take a picture. We ventured back into the City Centre of Glasgow, which seemed to be an especially busy day. As usual, Carolyn did the style spotting and I took the pictures. A few people have said they’d quite fancy some male fashion too. Never say never.

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

We’re back with the next entry in our Bax Street Blog, where we stop people in the street with an interesting style and take a picture. We took to the West End of Glasgow this time, which, ultimately, wasn’t the greatest idea I’ve ever had with how quiet it was on a Tuesday lunchtime. Still, I’m always so surprised by how friendly some of the girls we stop are, even if they decline to have their picture taken.

Over the next few weeks we will be taking to Edinburgh and seeing what the fashion is like there.

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

My sister and I have been wanting to collaborate on something for a while, marrying my love of photography with Carolyn’s eye for fashion. This is the first in our street style blog, which we’ve named Bax-Street Blog (our surname is Baxter, how witty are we?). We’ll be mainly taking to the streets of Glasgow where we’ll photograph some of the styles that capture our attention.

Glasgow is a stylish city, but the difference in fashion from the City Centre and West End is palpable. Our first outing saw us on one of Glasgow’s busiest streets for shopping, Buchanan Street, right in the heart of the city. Tomorrow we’ll be spending an hour or so in the West End of Glasgow. Feedback appreciated!
