Easter Weekend

I eat well, I train pretty hard, I’m in the best shape of my life and feeling really happy for it. However, I love my grub. That will never change, and I give myself one cheat day a week to indulge in something I might have been craving. This weekend, though, I went overboard. Ugh. I feel awful for it. Burgers and ice cream and mojitos and chocolate. So not worth it, and I can’t wait to hit the gym this morning to work up a sweat and lift something heavy.

Anyway, as established above my Easter weekend consisted of a lot of eating, but there was also a bit of street shooting, visiting Kelvingrove Art Gallery (which I hadn’t managed to do despite moving to Glasgow a year ago!), beginning Season 5 of Dexter, and getting overexcited by a cherry blossom tree. Hope you all have a good long weekend. Mine has been cut short, but such is the life of running your own business.

 
 

Charlene Kerr

A fellow drummer, although I feel dirty calling myself one these days, Charlene and I met at music college and quickly became friends. We decided to walk towards Paisley one sunny evening with Indie, my dog. Three hours later and I was actually carrying my pup home because she was exhausted. I am enjoying these lighter, warmer evenings. Keep it up, Mother Nature.

 
 

Couture By Carolyn at Saint Judes

Yesterday I got to spend my afternoon in Saint Judes, a boutique hotel on Bath Street. I can’t share most of the photos from yesterday as they are for a client, but afterwards my sister and I brought in a model and dressed her up in Carolyn’s dresses.

 
 

Des Clarke

Some of you may recognise this face. It belongs to Des Clarke, stand-up comedian and presenter of the Capital Breakfast Show. Des is performing at this year’s Fringe festival and needed some photos for posters, general promo and what-not. Des performs stand-up regularly, so follow him on Twitter and keep an eye out for his upcoming gigs.

This was my first shoot since my 28mm returned in working condition, so I put it to good use with some close-up portraits (they’re always funny).

 
 

Lunch at The Hidden Lane Tearoom

Shona often texts me spontaneously to say “Hey, I’m at Uni, let’s get coffee”, then the lazy me drags her to my side of town for some caffeine. I just find the city has little to offer in the way of independent coffee houses, and I find chains don’t stock as good coffee. The Hidden Lane Tearoom is a perfect blend of good food, beautiful light and smooth lattes, and it gets me way more excited than I should be.

I had tomato soup with a carrot, beetroot and goat cheese sammich, and a big pot of Chai tea.

 
 

Wee Ryan

I took a photo of Jane and published it to Flickr, so it was only correct I took a photo of her boyfriend and published it on my blog. To regular visitors Ryan will be very familiar. Whenever I need to practice or take a photo, he lets me abuse his chiselled face. Thanks, Ryan.

Anyway, I don’t have much to say this week. I am patiently awaiting the phone call from AJ Johnstone informing me my 28mm ƒ1.8 is fixed and good to go. It’s the widest lens I own, so I’m looking forward to getting it back. This photo of Ryan was taken with my 45mm ƒ2.8 TS-E, and it’s actually two shots stitched together vertically.

 
 

FNUK – Funk Nation

I spent my Sunday afternoon in the recording studio with Fnuk, mainly snapping candid shots of them laying down some tracks, but I also dragged them outdoors for some of the natural light I love so much. I would definitely recommend catching Fnuk live if you can, and they just so happen to be playing at Renfrew Ferry on February 10th. Sadly I’ll be in Prague (well, not sadly, but I am gutted to miss them).

 
 

Scott Carruthers

Meet the gentleman who is moulding me into a machine. Actually, Scott used to work in the gym I go to and help me train, but now he’s moved elsewhere so I hardly see him. Recently, though, he had me in his gym doing plyometrics and boxing, and nearly killed me in the process. Because he’s helped me out so much, I offered to take his photo – though it was probably more so for my benefit than his. I totally went on a black and white binge here, and it felt GOOD!

 
 

Miss C.

The beautiful woman you see in this picture is one of my oldest friends. As a kid she was my neighbour, and we hit up the same primary and high school together. Despite Lindsay having travelled the world, we’ve always kept in touch. It seems crazy that we live in the same city, have something ridiculous like 17 years of shared memories behind us, yet rarely meet up. I hope to change that.

 
 

The Christmas Market

I’ve had a hard time feeling festive this year. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been so busy with work. Usually I take time off at Christmas to slow down and reflect, but I won’t be doing that this year. Or I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve moved to a new apartment where family rarely visit me, therefore I’ve decided to skip on the Christmas decorations.

With that said, I spent most of Saturday at Glasgow’s Christmas market, where I stocked up on mulled wine, Amaretto punch and other festive flavours. I took my 135mm for some street photography, but I actually got pretty tipsy and only snapped a few frames. Oops.
