Eruption

Yesterday I had a bit of a strange day in which I erupted like a volcano. Actually, to anybody that really knows me, that isn’t strange — I do have a temper. My friend had been badgering me to help her shoot her pal’s portfolio; she didn’t have the confidence to do it alone and needed me to give her pointers with her camera. I agreed, but when I turned up my friend didn’t have her camera. I felt the wool had been pulled over my eyes, that I thought I was doing my friend a favour but now I was giving up my Sunday to shoot someone’s portfolio for free. The worst part is I didn’t get a thanks from the person who’s portfolio I was shooting.

Sometimes I feel so alienated from my generation, and this is a prime example of why. A generation that, while I’m massively generalising, seems to have been brought up without a decent work ethic or basic manners.

I had words with my friend and she assured me she hadn’t meant to take advantage, and everything is cool between us now. On a positive note, that’s the sign of a good friendship — when you can blow off steam and talk it out in the end.

 
 

The Jesus Dude

A bit of street photography for you. This man has an amplifier, a microphone, fliers and a mission to spend his days preaching to the passers by in Glasgow about faith, society and Jesus etc. Kudos to him for being passionate about it, but I don’t think people take so kindly to having beliefs thrust upon them. We can all figure out our faith, or lack of, on our own. Right?

 
 

Ella

What a great weekend I’ve had, totally lowkey and very relaxing. I feel energised and ready for work tomorrow!

I finished my weekend off with a walk through Kelvingrove Park with Sheryl and her pug, Ella. The rain had cleared up and there was a pleasant autumnal chill in the air… if you know what I mean. You know what I mean, right? I think this is my favourite time of the year, and I’m so glad to be back in the city for it.

 
 

Sunday Street Shots

Some simple street shots I took today in Glasgow. Everybody was miserable; it seems the average British person’s mood hinges on how the weather is. Also, I wonder what video game the geek with the GAME bag was taking home.

 
 

Carolyn Interviews Tallia Storm

Yesterday my sister and I did a bit of coverage at charity event, The Only Way Is Glasgow. While Carolyn was stopping fashionable folk to interview she spotted Tallia Storm. And how could you miss her? She had vinyl stuck to her head and was very sparkly. This girl owned the place. She is only 12 years old.

 
 

Three Steps To Heaven

There’s an independent, family run ice cream parlour in Byres Road, Glasgow. They do this wee gem of an ice cream treat called a Coldstone where they mash up two of your favourite flavours, merge it with two toppings of your choice, then finish it off with sauce on a frosted slab (hence the name). Tonight I was naughty and had one, specifically the apple pie and coconut flavours, mashed with strawberries and snowballs, then topped with melted chocolate sauce. Dee-lightful!

 
 

Couture by Carolyn

This shoot was important to me. Partly because it was for my sister’s new line of dresses, and I’ve seen how hard she’s worked on them so wanted to do her justice, and also because I’ve been feeling really lost with photography lately. I wanted to use this as a chance to push myself, to not rely on methods I’ve grown to feel extremely comfortable with. That meant breaking out the flash.

Okay, let’s back up a minute and talk about my sister; a YouTube fashion guru and dress designer. Carolyn has been slaving over these designs for a while, and they’ll be going live on her shop over the next few weeks (I think, don’t quote me). This was the first time I’ve seen them, and I felt really proud. I have a talented sister.

Anyway, for me this brought back a lot of the excitement I have towards photography that was, for whatever reason, buried away recently. Maybe it was the location, the models, or the fact I was shooting something that important. I don’t know, who cares, I had fun. I love my camera.

 
 

Andy Clarke Tea Diptych

Andy is doing a bit of work in Glasgow, and his office just so happens to be right next to my house. Since it was a ridiculously nice day, I took him to Kelvingrove Park on his lunch break and made him drink tea. He likes tea. I couldn’t decide what photo to use, so I made a diptych. I don’t even know if that’s what these things are called, but it is now.

 
 

Danny MacAskill in Glasgow

When I was walking Indie yesterday I just so happened to see a poster for Danny MacAskill performing nearby at Glasgow’s Riverside museum. Okay, I’m not going to pretend that I know who these cyclists are, but given the slump I’ve felt with photography recently, I made myself a promise to pop along and indulge in some crowd photography. Apparently these guys (The Clan) are Scotland’s number one stunt cycling team. I don’t care, there was a hot guy with tattoos and the sun was out. Yay.

 
 

Firepie

Gary, Gary, Gary. Are you sick of seeing Gary’s face yet? ‘Cos there are still a few days left with him until he flies to the other side of the world for his 3 month tour with the Chilli Pipers. Seriously, there aren’t many people I can spend a great deal of time with, but Gary is one of them. I will miss him, but I’m sure the 3 months will pass quickly. When he returns it will be Christmas! I will almost be 25! Shit.
