Fresh Air

I’ve been feeling a bit ‘under the weather’. A bit blue. I think it’s a combination of too much work on my plate, and my dad’s 10 year anniversary fast approaching.

It’s not a big deal, as there is one thing always guaranteed to lift my mood. Fresh air. Trees, sea, nature… It works every time, and today was no exception. All of this is on my doorstep. Well, a 20-40 minute drive.

Sometimes it’s worth taking a couple of hours out of a busy day to come up for air, no matter how ‘busy’ we are. This has helped clear my head.

 
 

Summer Road Trip To Glencoe

I set my alarm for the unthinkable hour of 5AM, but we had to chase the good light. Armed with coffee in flasks and half a dozen cameras, we road tripped to the Scottish Highlands while everyone else was still in bed. It was worth the 5AM rise.

 
 
 
 

A Bit Of A Shambles

Shambles Miller is a talented singer/songwriter from Glasgow. I’ve heard his songs and they are witty and funny and good. In preparation for his single release on the 9th of July, we took some photos of him in Govan. I told him to “just trust me” with the yellow, flower things (they’re not very masculine). We didn’t spend as much time taking photos as I would have hoped because I had dropped my bank card, which is never very good.

 
 

Kay Slater on Newark Street

I first met Kay in February when I was shooting for Parma Vintage on Asos Marketplace. We swapped details so we could do a proper shoot at a later date, and that time came yesterday. I headed to Newark Street in Greenock where the Cherry Blossom trees are in full bloom and the properties are old, Victorian buildings. Basically, it’s a pretty sweet location to shoot with a lot of surroundings to utilise.

Yesterday was a pleasant reminder why I love photography.

 
 

Argyll Forestry

After spending most of last Summer distracted, I made a conscious decision to really embrace this Summer and lose myself in many outdoor activities. And so, with the proposed weather of  18°, a couple of friends and I went to Argyll Forestry for a mammoth Sunday morning walk, following it up with a pub lunch by the sea. It was the most perfect Sunday I’ve had in a long time; great weather, good company, nature and stodgy food.

 
 

Wonky Nature

A bitter afternoon in the West End of Glasgow, after a cheeky lunch at Tribeca and some street photography (which I’ll get to posting later, after the Frank Turner gig or possibly tomorrow). My camera and sunsets, I could not live without you.
