Dan Rubin returned to Glasgow for his second Glasgow Photo Walk workshop. We decided to chase the morning light for the photo walk segment, setting our alarm for 4.45AM. Urgh. The dull, flat light we were met with didn’t exactly make the early rise worth it, but you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.

So, this weekend was interesting. On Sunday I held the second Glasgow Photo Walk alongside a workshop with Dan Rubin. I’ve never organised an event in my life, so it was a big learning experience and there are a few things I would do differently, but everybody – myself included – had a blast. I even picked up a few photography tips.

I’m so grateful to those who bought a ticket, not to mention Dan for being so heavily involved. Thank you!

 
 

Glasgow Photo Walk

On Saturday I took a group of 10+ people on a 2 mile route around the East End of Glasgow for the inaugural Glasgow Photo Walk. To be perfectly honest, when I awoke on Saturday morning and heard the downpour of rain, I didn’t think anybody would show up. After a few cancellations landing in my inbox (inevitable), I was standing at Glasgow Cathedral in the company of a bunch of people I had never met – and what a lovely group it was!

The rain didn’t appear to dampen anybody’s spirits, and for the next hour we meandered through the oldest area of Glasgow. There was a lot of old signage and texture, but as always, I focused on portraits. I do like photographing people.

Afterwards we headed to Tinderbox on Ingram Street, and it was at this point we all had a chat about photography and how long each of us has been doing it etc. I really couldn’t have asked for a nicer bunch of people to show up, so thank you to those who took a gamble on coming to the first walk. I really wasn’t sure what I was doing!

Glasgow Photo Walk is on Facebook, and there have been a trickle of photos added to the Flickr group. You can, of course, sign up to be notified of the next walk.
