Carolyn, The Dress Designer

My sister stopped by my apartment today, in between dropping one of her dresses off at a shoot with Rebecca Fox, and a massage I booked for her 30th birthday. We went for ice cream. Well, Carolyn did. I had just ran 8K so was behaving myself… for about 5 minutes.

 
 

Snow White

One of the most common frustrations I find amongst photographers is not having a subject to practice portrait photography with. Today was yet another Glasgow Photo Walk, and this time I hired a model, Iona, to pose for the class.

It was a tough gig; the sun – as nice as it is to see it – causes harsh light, and Botanic Gardens – the location of our shoot – was heaving with people (“taps aff”, as we say in Glasgow).

I hope the attendees enjoyed themselves, and I can’t wait to see their photos appearing on the Flickr group over the next few days. If anything, today made me aware of my own shooting style as I was …

 
 

Casa Morada

“Casa Morada is the culmination of a personal and professional dream of Eva Serrano, a Spanish Interior Designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland…” Eva gave us free roam of her beautiful interiors shop last month, the perfect location to photograph my sister’s dresses. I am noticing many more flaws with my photos these days, which is a good thing, although I wish I could catch these flaws before it comes to looking at my photos on a big screen. This is all part of learning process, I guess. Regardless, beautiful models, stunning location and glamorous dresses.

Hotdogs and Destiny

Ryan and I hadn’t seen one another for a while, and so we caught up over a Cinnamon Steamer in Tinderbox (I don’t even know what a Cinnamon Steamer is. I think it’s what babies drink before bed) . He told me about his new music video filmed for his band, These Little Kings, which involved smashing guitars and cymbals and expensive musical equipment. Afterwards we overdosed on carbs with hot dogs and fries presented in a plastic red basket. It all felt very American – the only thing missing being plastic red cups. We finished off our evening by hitting GAME and watching some PS4 trailers; Watch Dogs, InFamous and Destiny. I am excited for video games. I …

 
 

Joshua Porter

After years of crossing paths on the interwebz, I finally bullied Joshua into meeting me for a coffee. There is always a slight hesitation when meeting someone ‘from’ the web. They could indeed be a murderer, or have shite chat. Fortunately, Joshua is not only a fantastic photographer, but the kind of guy I’d meet for a second coffee (or tequila). Here’s to new friends!

 
 

Morgan

Morgan is joining us in Toad’s Caravan for a few months, and hopefully FOREVER if she gets a Visa (she’s American). Morgan has only been in Glasgow a few weeks, but joined us at Tribeca for my (early) birthday lunch. We are going out for drinks next week and I’m going to teach her all the Scottish words, like bawbag.

 
 

Tom Welsh

Today I had the pleasure of enjoying a coffee with film maker, Tom Welsh. Tom does the tour videography for You Me At Six (amongst other cool stuff), and so when he tweeted he was passing through Glasgow, I asked if he’d have a chance to meet up. His chat was so good I’ve invited him back to talk to attendees of an upcoming Glasgow Photo Walk. Tom also writes an interesting blog about gear and life as a film maker on the road.

Seeing as his career involves music, I thought it only apt to photograph him in front of Glasgow’s new music venue, The Hydro.

 
 

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.

 
 

Double Exposure

The MKIII’s in-camera double exposure mode is fun to play with, but difficult to nail. I’ve seen other photographer’s produce amazing results, I definitely want to experiment with it. For now, here’s a double exposure I took when exploring the Highlands.

 
 

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!
