Allure

This is a strange shot for me and one I use to highlight that good photography shots can be acquired by anyone. I was called to ‘take’ a photo of a bridal make up session, I agreed but didn’t have my gear with me, I always carry my gear in my car, but today I…

2 poor judgements and a missed opportunity!

I’m sharing this because I had a confrontation today where I was judged and I judged too… so I ask these simple questions, “Do we, as real photographers, judge others? And if we do does that adversely effect what we do?” I was doing some test shots today at the Clyde (photography not alcohol)… two ‘lads’, trackies…

My Iconic Hate Image

I hate long corridors, from a human point of view, I understand converging lines, repeating patterns and decor mesh to entice the photographer, but the human in me rebels. This was also the scene of a betrayal of me as a photographer by people I trusted, it taught me that you, as a photographer, a…

In Reflection

A busy Saturday at the junction of Sauchiehall Street and Buchanan Street, 2 of the most famous streets in Glasgow… I was taken with the amount of people avoiding the puddle! The kid in me so wanted to jump in it! It’s in my Bucket List, I’ll not miss the opportunity again!

Out of the mist

Three guys from different generations come out of the mist towards me pushing a pram on a cold and miserable Scottish day at Stirling Castle… Shot from the hip!

Mortality… the final station in life

I’m currently half way through a personal project on Mentality and Mortality, a series of self portraits exploring the good and the bad and the humdrum in my life … the BA Hons in Digital Art is yanking the ‘artist’ out of me… here are some of the images from my archive I have from…

Gorgeous George

George “Gorgeous” Galloway is a charismatic rather extreme left wing MP. He’s never been afraid to get out and fight his corner, what ever that corner is… it changes! As I was wondering through Buchanan Street there was George shouting over the clamour of life on a Saturday afternoon in one of Glasgow’s famous streets. April 2011

The Protest

Martin Luther King Jr was a man whose dignity remained when the other side had lost theirs! We need to stand up and be counted not bitch on Facebook! We need to re grow our backbone!

A Sensual Hint?

One of my 6 projects for the 2nd quarter of the year is Suggestion. Can suggestion arouse more than seeing “everything”, is the subtleness of hint lost on us… there are 6 images planned but 12 in my ideas book. I need to research what woman like to see in males, males in males and…

7 Images from a Night in Glasgow

I wanted to use the higher ISO’s afforded by my camera… I have a personal project starting where this is important… so I set off around 8pm on 13th of November 2011 and gloried in the people of the night. These are some of my favourites… I have a unique(ish) approach to street photography at night but…

Glasgow Streets… Paved in Photography Gold!

I’m preparing for several personal projects which means reviewing some images I like from my portfolios. Here’s the one’s I liked from last year Street Safari. The Safari starts at 6am and goes through to 10pm… grueling but that’s why I know the best cafe’s and best place to hang! GEORGE SQUARE GLASGOW   ST VINCENTS STREET…

New Bands from RKC at the ABC

Reid Kerr College produces a range of very talented musicians, we got the chance to grab them on stage. We would have preferred the lighting people to have looked whilst the flicked switches but sometimes you need to roll with it… At the end of the slide show we tried to capture them after their…
