Scott Stanger Photo shoot

October 7, 2017 § 2 Comments


I had the pleasure in doing a photo shoot with Scott Stanger, whom travelled all the way from New York to visit Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh. During his visit to Glasgow we got together for a photo shoot at some of Glasgow’s unique backdrop’s.

Below are just some of the photos from our shoot.

A big thank you to Yemi King for being my amazing lighting assistant .

Scott’s amazing sense of classic/vintage style (see his instagram) allow me to experiment in different picture styles. Such as colour, black and white and Sepia. I love the fact Scott Stanger suits them all.

Super busy

August 7, 2017 § Leave a comment


I have been super busy this Summer and cannot complain. Below is a mixture of personal and commercial work.

I had a real rare pleasure photographing Photographer, Director and Chancellor David Eustace at his house in Edinburgh. From the minute he opened the door to saying goodbye, he was a total Gentlemen. David gave me free reign of his house and let me do my thing, not once suggesting this or that. It made me respect David even more.

I am working on a long term project of top Scottish figureheads in the arts, culture and entertainment industry and David is up there on a global level.

I went with two setups. One with natural light beaming into David Eustace’s hallway. The second was a three speed light setup.

With Glasgow having a couple of real sunny days, it was a real pleasure to shoot a lot of property for DJ Alexander. With such examples as below:

At the beginning of July, I finally got to meet and photograph Bill Wilson. We have known each other online (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) for a short while. And we both got the time in our hectic schedules to go ahead with a portrait shoot. Bill is stylish charismatic, creative and a businessman. To me a fantastic quality combination. For this shoot, I used a 32″ Westcott Rapid Duo softbox.

I have a photo shoot for a client later in the year, and wanted to nail some test shots. I used myself as the test subject and practice various combinations. I photographer should always be practising and innovating. I had fun creating this scene below from a boring grey overcast car park to something vivid and cinematic. I used gels on my lighting to achieve this look.

As a photographer is pays to always carry a camera with you. And when I don’t have my large DSLR camera on me, I will always have my trusty Ricoh GR. One of the mornings I was out early. It was amazing fog and the sun was beginning to rise in Glasgow. I had to quickly park the car and capture it.

It was great to catch up with fellow photographer Peter McNally, as we have some future plans on a Glasgow Project. I could not resist capturing a portrait of Peter, as he has done the same for me over the years. I think Peter McNally looks superb in this shot below.

Time to leave Glasgow now, and head up north to the Highlands of Scotland. I needed to scout a couple of locations up there in the magical lands. I also photographed a few of the the more touristy places for my own, as the ever changing light and colours was a feast for the eyes and soul.

Back to my home city of Glasgow, and hired by Chris Grant of Parkour Generations Glasgow. We did some head shots and lots of action shots. Below is just a taster, as photos will be released throughout the year. If you are in Glasgow, and would love to learn Parkour, check out Chris Grant’s Parkour classes.

From outside to inside now working with talented Sarah Haran of VVA, for an event “An Evening of Style” in Glasgow’s Gusto Restaurant. I have shot many events, and feel at home photographing interesting people enjoying a good night.

It is nice now and then to come out of my little bubble, and see what else is happening out there. So when i got an invite from Simon Murphy to his exhibition in Govanhill Baths, I went along and really enjoyed it. Simon Murphy’s work was strong and memorable with the Photographic prints on the wall in each bath cubical.

So what is next?

Well there have been meetings had for future shoots, so watch this space. In the meantime this envelope came through my door…

Jane Black Photo Shoot

February 8, 2017 § 3 Comments


I recently was hired by the partner of Jane, as a present for her birthday. This was a very special photo shoot on many levels. It was such a thoughtful gift, and the photos will last a lifetime and will become more precious in the passing of time.

I asked Jane what kind of photo shoot she would love. The answer was simple and a beautiful one. Jane want a mixture of portrait photos that said this is who she is at that given moment in time, and to include her love for the charm and character of Glasgow too. We discussed some of Jane’s favourite parts of Glasgow and I recommended a couple too, and off we went on Streets of Glasgow photo shoot.

In typical Glasgow style it was raining that day, but we embraced the wet streets.

With the rain now off we then made full use the overcast skies, which provided us with perfect natural light for some beautiful Portrait shots.

 

We then made our way towards the river Clyde, and included a bit more of Glasgow’s rich  Architecture.

A big thank you to Jane Black for being such a natural and making the shoot such fun. And a big thank you to Alastair Clarkson for being so thoughtful!

I also travelled through to Stirling as well, for their installation of Student office furniture at Stirling university.

 

Also with regards to Product photography. I photographed jewellery for a designer called Nuberu for their up new website, which is about to go live soon. Below is just some of their fine pieces.

 

Event Photography

I have shot many events, but I was very fortunate to photograph a 50th Wedding Anniversary, which are very rare and very special. It was a full day at the stunning grounds of Crossbasket Castle. I photographed the lovely couple and amazing large family formally and candidly. Below is a small section of photographs, as i will be posting a more in depth page to this special day.

I was on the opposite side of the camera, albeit TV cameras, working with the BBC, for an up and coming show next year. It was a fun and photography related and that is all I am allowed to say for the time being.
