This fine lady caught my eye at the weekend at Red Road, Glasgow. And rather than shoot my usual candid style. I just had to ask her permission to capture a portrait of her. She kindly agreed.
There are times when i really need the eye contact to make a more compelling photo, rather than shoot candid. And asking for permission was the correct choice in this instance.
Another point is normally when I take portrait head shots, I would use my Canon 85mm F1.8, but on that day I used my Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG, as it is my favourite lens these past few months. For it’s image quality, sharpness and it’s response.
What are your thoughts?

In this post I may draw your eye to my photography, but really I would like to shed the spotlight, purely on Scott Houston. I have been very lucky to be hired and work in various collaborations with Scott. He is one of those once in a lifetime people you meet.
Scott is a Movement Artist. With the background disciplines of Gymnastics, Acrobatics, Parkour, Martial Arts and Stunts have enabled Scott to be in total control of his body in any given space and time. Lately Scott has been adding to his skills with physical theatre and ballet. And this fusion of forms has enabled Scott to evolve and develop his own unique style.
Through hard training and paying close attention to his nutrition, Scott is in the best shape of his life; body and mind.

The photos below are just some of the shots I had captured for Daniel Cahill. A strong and cool actor, currently studying at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Daniel wanted some neutral head shots and some action photos of doing Parkour.

This week I returned to my photographic roots to the photogenic City of Paris, where I have spent the last week capturing some Paris spirit.
I was looking at my old film negatives from Paris 2002, and comparing them to the type of photos I have taken this week. It is refreshing to see an improvement on all aspects of my photography, such as lighting, better composition, creativity and being more daring in the street photography side.
My initial Street Photography started in Paris back in 2008, so it was good to shoot some street again there, as well as the touristy photos. When packing my camera gear, I decided to only take 1 camera and 2 lenses (35mm F1.4 & 17-40mm L F4), to keep it light and simple. My favourite lens that I am using at the moment is the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM on my full frame camera.
Below are some of the photographs I captured and I will be sending off to the lab to be printed today, as I am a strong advocate of printing your photos and not having them just stored up on a disc or on chip.
