A week photographing Prince Charles…


Last week I had the pleasure of photographing HRH The Duke of Rothesay, Prince Charles.
I had six commissions during the week photographing Prince Charles during his weeklong engagements in Scotland.

The first image were from a reception for the Prince’s Trust at The Palace of Holyrood House. I have shot in the Palace many a time and the rooms are stunning just what you would expect from a royal palace…large wonderful tapestries depicting a range of historical events from a time when “great” was still in Great Britain!

The second couldn’t have been more different, on board Marine Scotland’s new research vessel during a visit to Leith harbour he helped serve up fish & chips in the ship’s galley.

Below he addressed the sixth World Fisheries Congress in Edinburgh at the EICC.
And then off to the National Museum for Scotland to hand out awards at the Scottish Business in the Community, 30th Anniversary Dinner

Another reception…Don’t think I released just how hard the Royal family works, until you see it first hand over a few days.
Then a tour round Craigroyston Community High School where he stopped and engaged with pupils and staff.
What a week great fun and managed to get a fantastic set of images while keeping my distance an observing the Royal protocols.
A long week shooting all day then editing well in to the wee hours, to get the images over to my clients. I also shot a video of HRH making his speech at the EICC, edited and uploaded to clients website within a few hours.
