Up and Down St Vincents’ Street

Glasgow was a little boring tonight, photography wise that is, lots of people enjoying the sun at 7:30 in the evening… Scottish Summer is here, well, until tomorrow then it’s the Other Scottish Summer. It needed to be later or earlier in the day, but the sun does shine straight down St Vincent Street to…

Oh you cow!

It isn’t an image of artistic merit or one that holds value in terms of composition, however, I was on my way last night to collect my daughter from Glasgow Airport and came across an obstruction. Then, on the way back, 25 minutes later and after passing a couple of stressed out Police Officers, we met…

It’s late in the day, Coffee Time!!

Glasgow is your typical city in respect of busy streets, the people are friendly but we all put our heads down and get from A to B. I was doing just this when the late December Sun burst out and bathed the buildings in the warm glow… well it looked warm, didn’t do anything to…

High Voltage Perch

I admit I don’t like being under these things, and this is one of the biggest! I have to admire the men and women that climb these and “rewire” the National Grid. They worked away for some time… the view must be amazing and I would love to go up and grab a few images……

DIFFERENT PATHS

… this is my normal route to Uni, into a course that has opened my eyes and shifted the spectrum! It’s amazing just how this path can change your mood as you walk the red path whilst listening to the blue path… pop culture reference… I took the red path, stayed in Wonderland, and was…

Accidents happen for a reason

I rigged the tripod up in the car… one leg on the floor, one on the ceiling and one pressed against the windscreen. I attached the camera then set up the radio trigger by taping it to the steering wheel… I wanted the journey to be part of the art, especially if you got stopped…

WTF or did I miss something…

Referencing: http://petapixel.com/2013/05/21/rip-professional-photographers/ I’m jumping on the boat here, it was an incredibly stupid and strange thing for someone in her position to say. However, lets get off the boat and consider the comments she made …there’s no such thing as Flickr Pro, because today, with cameras as pervasive as they are, there is no such thing really as…

Between then and now

Hi Stu It’s been a trying few weeks, finished my 3rd year at Uni (I hope there are no re sits!) and I’ve been feeling dreadful! Ended up at the A&E of the local hospital with what we Scots refer to as a “sare baw”, that’s a painful left testicle to the rest of the…

Slipping away

Hi Stu Slipping away… kind of a metaphor in more sense than one.                        I’ve reached a creative impasse, one I know I have to break, one I know I want to break… i’m eager to find out what I am as a photographer, I started this journey…

5 Minutes to 2

Dear Stu So busy doing commercial photography I’ve forgotten to do what feed my soul. Finished last night at 1:30am, I had been photographing a Grande Ball for a charity, by the time I had packed up and got out it was around 2am… and the 5 minute walk to the car, slightly dehydrated allowed me to kill a…

Depressive Iconology

Dear Stuart We, photographers, seek that composition that will engage an audience and progress our skills, it maybe a conscious effort or wrapped up in an unconscious personal agenda. I take stock and understand what Bresson meant when he said “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”   However, his contemporary, Robert Doisneau, framed that better…

At the Mojo Lost & Found

Apart from recurring headaches that are beginning to annoy me, I have a feeling I’m getting my Mojo back. I’ve now disabled all my galleries in different sites and I’m only focusing on the ones I like, this is one I’ve shown before but this is how I saw it on the day… kind of… I sat…
