May on Buchanan Street

Remember my November on Buchanan Street photo? It was damp and rainy. Well, this is my May on Buchanan Street photo. It is also damp and rainy. Scottish summer!

 
 

Innis At Chatelherault

Great venue. Terrible weather conditions. The torrential rain meant this much-anticipated shoot (for me, at least) was cut short. Still, it was great to meet Innis and she introduced me to Chatelherault, which I’d love to shoot at again. And take my dog, Indie, for a walk.

 
 

Laura Mute

So, after not seeing Laura for a whole year (Laura always loses her phone and I always change my number), we caught up on Saturday over brunch at Lebowskis. Laura is easily one of the funniest people I have met and has an enviously laid-back view on life, a stark contrast to myself. Hopefully another year doesn’t pass before her face is on my blog again.

 
 

Temporarily Lost

…and I have no idea what I’m doing. I know a lot of ‘creatives’ get into this lull from time to time, but my lull has been worryingly prolonged. I am putting it down to my time being taken up with other things, and – as a result – I’ve found myself picking up my camera less and less. I do have a shoot planned with a girl early May, and it will be good to push myself while doing the style of photgraphy I know will excite me.

 
 

Jack Smith Is…

It was Saturday morning and Jack arrived in Glasgow, complete with an entire box of Krispy Kreme’s for my fatty fat arse. I enjoy showing people around Glasgow because – as much as it has acquired a terrible reputation over the years – I know the good bits and how to sell the city; Tribeca for brunch, the lighthouse for a panoramic view of the (diamond in the rough) city, or a lunchtime drink in Ashton Lane. I think I sold it to him, although that might be because Indie took a shine to him.

 
 

Alan’s Mural

My friend, Alan, whose wedding I will be shooting later in year, asked if I could photograph him painting a mural at a local salon. I had no idea Alan could even paint or draw, or was as creative as he actually is, so it was a nice surprise.

I really struggled with the white balance in these photos; it’s a bit all over the place and was difficult to get right with the green glare from the wall, and the fluorescent lighting above.

 
 

Saturday with Brittany

Brittany and I met for sushi on Saturday, although it didn’t really go to plan as Shilla have stopped serving their amazing sushi platters. Still, we enjoyed some Korean food and quickly followed it up with a scone at The Hidden Lane Tearoom.

I really enjoy taking people to The Hidden Lane Tearoom who haven’t been before. It’s always a nice surprise for them walking down the misleading alley and being met by such a cute cafe. In Glasgow, alleys are generally used for men to urinate in.

 
 

Ginger

Today I spent a bit of time with Gary. He carried my new guitar home (thanks, Gary) and hung in my apartment while I edited wedding photos. He’s playing a gig at the hotel next door to my house, so I popped over and took some photographs of The Real Easy All Stars, which I’ll share later in the week. It’s been a good Sunday, but it’s been mostly work and no play. I want to play.

 
 

Ayden Gets Inked

I had mentioned to Ayden a while back it would be fun to photograph her getting tattooed, and so – after a weights session at the gym and before I headed back to work – I popped into Timeless Tattoo for 20 minutes and did just that. I’ve never seen anyone get a tattoo before. I’m not interested in having one myself, but I generally quite like them on others. It struck me how much pain poor Ayden was in. She’s a bit of a veteran when it comes to tattoos, and I had gathered some people even like the pain. I like Ayden’s new tattoo because it reminds me of Bioshock.

 
 

Arrochar

Road tripping to Arrochar in March is becoming a bit of a tradition. And every time I do so the weather happens to be beautiful. Brittany and I (and Indie) felt inspired to spend the day outdoors. I want to shift the excess weight kicking about due to OD’ing on waffles in Bruges, and – next month – Brittany will be spending 2 months in Thailand, so we’re both on a bit of a health kick. It was good to get away from the ol’ ball and chain for the weekend i.e. my computer.
