One of my my key skills in Photography apart from portraiture, is events!
Below is a small sample of my work from various events I have been hired to capture.
A “Sonica” evening by @cryptic_glasgow with the Bafta winner Sven Werner
From another one of Cryptic’s Sonica projects, with laser artist Jack Wrigley.
Staying in the Restaurant environment, this selected set of photos was from The Stag & Thistle in Stewarton from one of their themed menu events.

After a £25 million renovation of the former Roxburghe Hotel. A party to launch ”The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square” happened.
I loved the colour of the Aperol Spritz drinks, but no drinking for me as I was working.
With a 1000+ Guest list the party was truly under way.
Music was provided by many DJ’s in many rooms
As well as parting in the main halls, there were people having a good time in the many suites.
The main headline act was RayBLK, taking the partying up to another level
The party continued into the wee hours of the morning

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…

Last week my camera and I were invited to the Metropolitan Fashion Show in Edinburgh. Below are some of the photos from the day.
After make-up some of the models, began to loosen up before getting their outfits on.
I was happy to see Model KT Matsetse again. I love KT’s energy!
I was particularly lucky to have met this fine Model and Gentleman, Paul Keenan. I knew of Paul through the #ScotStreetStyle community movement, but it was good to see and talk to this fine man, plus capture a Portrait. 🙂
Time for the Show!!
I would like to thank Farah for making all this happen.

Here are a set of photos I captured from the fantastic #ScotStreetStyle gathering event, at the Biscuit Factory Edinburgh.
From where just over 400 of Scotland’s top creatives, designers, illustrators, fashion labels, business and boutique owners, models and bloggers all got together, hosted by Gordon J Millar.
I decided to just shoot all in natural and gave the flash the day off.
