Fortrose, Scotland - May, 2017

I recently took a trip to visit my girlfriend's family in the north of Scotland in a small town called Fortrose. The trip really inspired me to get out and see more of my beautiful country. Here are some of the images I captured there.

Harris Tweed x Hilary Ross

Happy 2017 everyone!

I've set myself the New Year's resolution of taking as many photos as possible and push myself into new situations, regarding photography, in order to be the best I can be. Looking back at 2016 I'm extremely proud of how far I've come in just a year. Only 2 weeks into the new year and I've already been blasting through some new shoots and have some more in the works. 

 

The First thing I got up to was a shoot with Hilary Ross. She was commissioned by Harris Tweed as part of her university project for Glasgow Caledonian University. She created the jacket (as modelled by her) below and I think you'll agree it looks outstanding. 

Sleeklens "Strike a Pose" Review

I was reached out to by a company called Sleeklens, who produce workflow solutions for Lightroom and Photoshop asking if I would like to check out their "Strike a Pose" pack which aims to assist with Lightroom workflows for portrait photographers. I jumped at the idea because I knew using something like this would definitely make my job easier and help me make better use of my time; in order to produce the best work I can.

Photo Shoot with Kieran Baylan

Hello everyone,

I was contacted by Glasgow based model Kieran Baylan to do a shoot. We planned to do some simple fashion/catalogue style photos and some black & white, as per request of his agency. As both of us are new, I could feel that we were both nervous. But I'm extremely happy with the results, and I think he is too. 

For the shoot I used my Canon 7D Mark ii and a combination of the Canon 24-70mm f4 and Canon 50mm f1.8. For lighting I used a mix of a flashgun straight into the silver lining of a softbox and just a softbox lamp by itself. Which I think you'll agree turned out pretty great! 

If you have the chance to work with Kieran, I would highly recommend it. He was extremely professional and polite. He will go far!

New Lens!

Hello,

It's been a little bit since I posted new photos so, in the words of Keenan & Kel: "Awww here it goes!"

I recently picked up a Canon 24-70mm f4 IS USM for a conference I was shooting for my work (unfortunately I can't post them because it was an internal event) and so far I LOVE it! That paired with my Canon 7D Mark II is a match made in heaven. I took some photos of Hilary and Callum to test it out. For the ones of Callum I reflected my flashgun into the soft box with the screen off it, made for some really nice light! Anyway here's some of those photos - 

Let me know what you think!

And I'll leave you of this excellent view from my apartment. 

New Website!

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted any new photos but I've been working on a complete redesign of the website. I've migrated everything over to SquareSpace as I felt Wordpress was getting a little too clunky. Hopefully I'll be doing some new shoots soon so keep an eye out and let me know if you like the new site!
