3rd DEC 2019 - Stephen Finch's workshop
Creating anything with your hands is one the most satisfying things you can do....in my humble opinion!
So when Stephen asked me to come round to his workshop to take a "portrait" of him, I saw the opportunity to be creative with lighting and depths of field. He didn't want the usual thing, a picture of him (a pose with an awkward smile) but more of him in his workshop. And he wanted it in black and white!
2nd DEC 2019 - La Novia, MY STUDIO
Liliana and I have worked together for a few years now and there is never a dull moment.
This is from our shoot in the studio last week. For this shoot, since wedding dresses are usually a light colour, the studio had a make-over! A warm grey colour was applied to the back wall and floor, showing the dresses of beautifully.
Sometimes less is more! But it's good to have the creative chat and try different versions till you decide on the final choice. It's fab to see the studio 'earn it's keep' as they say.
....and there is always room for Oscar the Dalmatian :)
8th NOV 2019 - BEN HART, GLASGOW
So a couple of weeks ago I have the pleasure of taking a few pictures of Ben Hart. The magician who was, In 2007 awarded the "Young Magician Of The Year" award by The Magic Circle) No less!
Working along side B4 Films, it was a case of not getting too much in the way :) but still get the shoots we needed. A nice way to spend a few hours.
Again it is hard to choose a favourite so here is a couple and there will be a couple more in my portrait folder.
21st May 2019 - "Three hills Coffee" in Selkirk!
Had a brilliant day shooting and filming with Jessica and Richard - with a bit more filming to be done! The aim was to capture that special moment when you get to switch off with a delicious cup of coffee. The decor and the beautifully designed machinery in the cafe made it pretty easy to shoot from most angles...... photogenic owners........Canon with vintage lens.....and getting high on tasty coffee just added the right feel to the images.
