Little Martha was fantastic to photograph right from the word go. Full of fun and smiles meant my shift was a pretty easy one really. That coupled with the fact that the weather was great meant we got lots of good shots
Many thanks to mum and dad who made me so welcome in their home. I had a great time
As always here are some pics.
I’ve photographed little Ashton before in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and had a ball following him around photographing him as he looked at all the exhibits. This time around I had a new addition to photograph, Ashton’s little brother Lleyton.
As the weather was a touch ropey to say the least we stayed inside and let the boys relax. The light was fantastic inside with lots of window light and a large conservatory so I wasn’t too concerned with getting outside too much.
The boys were fantastic and nothing was too much hassle. Thanks again guys for your wonderful hospitality
Here are a few shots of the boys.
I hardly ever get the chance to shoot stuff for myself these days so I decided a while back to set aside a day, grab a willing volunteer and just go shoot some pics with no strings attached.
About a month ago I was searching for a location for another shoot when I stumbled upon this old abandoned mansion in the middle of nowhere which had the most amazing grand rooms that were still in remarkably good condition. For me this was the place to go, although my model for the day had to be a bit adventurous (crazy?!) in order to venture into this place. Meet Gail, a good friend who along with me breached just about every Health & Safety law there is in order to get some different portraits.
In order to get into the place we had to enter through a broken back window. The lower floors were in pretty good condition but the real wow rooms were on the third floor where there was a huge ballroom and a very creepy nursery, complete with cot. As we entered this room I almost had a cardiac arrest as some joker had lain a bandaged mannequin on the floor. You can see the visitor in the first shot. As I didn’t have any real expectations from the shoot it was great to try out some new things with no pressure. For two hours we moved to a few rooms and made some photographs, some good and some not so good, but that’s what it was all about.
To finish off I headed outside and left Gail inside and took some shots turning day into night with Gail in her own creepy little window. As you can see from the full building shots it really is a superb building and a crying shame that it’s in the condition it is. If I won the lottery I know which renovation project I’d be undertaking
Thanks again to Gail for helping out
The guys at Finnell & MacMillan’s in Barrhead were looking for some shots to present in their new salon opening soon in Glasgow, so I was only too happy to oblige. The theme was 60′s retro and the location was the soon-to-be salon itself, which was being decorated inside. The building itself used to be the Libyan embassy, so cue spiralling staircases and huge windows, perfect for photographing Marina and Ashley in their 60′s gear.
As ever Brian, Kevin and the ladies were as helpful as ever and nothing was a hassle for them, thanks for all your efforts.
Here are a few shots.
I’ll start off by saying Paul & Mhairi’s wedding next year is going to be a blast to photograph! It was great fun meeting and photographing these two out on their steading in the middle of beautiful countryside. The weather was fantastic, the scenery stunning and Paul & Mhairi were full of fun which all added up to a superb day.
