Thirteen billion pixels…

30 Jun 2013 / 0 Comments / in Photo

365 days, 365 photos, 13,195,596,800 pixels… …or thereabouts. The idea’s nothing new or particularly original. It’s just a challenge to keep those much needed creative juices flowing. The aim is to take around 365 photos throughout the coming year, posting them one by one right here. Whether it’s full frame or iPhone, Pulitzer prize-winning or barely Facebook-worthy, […]

Jacek’s workshop…

09 Jun 2013 / 0 Comments / in Film, People

My wife’s from Krakow, so we’ve spent a lot of time living and working there, trying to visit as often as possible [thank you Ryanair!]. In March 2013 during a flying visit to Krakow I dropped into Jacek’s workshop with my camera [Jacek’s my father-in-law]. I worked at his workshop in 2010 and 2011, and we […]

Taking photos in London…

Westminster

I spent a few days in London recently and was commissioned to produce a set of 3 images for large scale printing and framing, my only brief being to capture some of the city’s famous landmarks. Unfortunately a tripod problem at the beginning of my visit meant that I was restricted to hand-held daytime shots, and the […]

The other week I was asked to shoot a gig by the awesome Scottish two-piece band ‘The Fire and I’ [www.thefireandi.com] at Cabaret Voltaire in Edinburgh. If you haven’t heard of them, check them out. They’ll blow your expectations out the window, pumping out an incredible noise using just one set of drums, a bass guitar […]

Calton Hill sunset…

19 Feb 2013 / 0 Comments / in People, Photo, Places

This evening Edinburgh was treated to a rather sublime sunset. I spent the afternoon wandering around town scoping out shots for my ‘Athens of the north’ project, and decided early on that it would be a good evening to be up on Calton Hill. I wasn’t wrong, what a sunset! There has been a steady […]

Glenmuick to Lochnagar

After days of monitoring the weather, and a 4am start to make the most of an excellent forecast for Lochnagar, we took to the mountains yesterday. Cold, snowy and icy conditions, but supposedly fantastic visibility and clear skies was justification enough to head out with a fully-loaded camera bag. A huge herd of deer greeted us as we […]

While flicking through some holiday snaps trying to find a few potential prints to cover our bare white walls, I came across these three. The first is of ‘Dave’ the Ibis, taken in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens. We remember him well: one evening just before the fruit bats came out, he sauntered over to us […]

Having spent a lot of time living and working in Krakow, it was a pleasure to shoot some stills for the ‘Polish Cultural Festival Association’ events in Edinburgh this December. I love Poland, so it’s excellent seeing some of the fantastic food, drink and traditions being championed over here. The events were a great success, and I […]
