2012 Scottish Fashion Awards…


Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow always a good night and a chance to catch up with fellow photographers.
Also I was under orders from my daughter who is studying fashion at Uni not to come back empty handed!
Not as good as previous years, no goody bags, no press release with names and headshots of who was who as in previous years…and the promised wifi in the media room was not working. But did manage a Scottish Fashion Award T-shirt by Holly Fulton.

Not really much you can say about this young mans dress sense.

Scottish Fashion Photographer of the Year Jonathan Daniel Pryce gets some help cleaning his award.

A red carpet wouldn’t be a red carpet these days without some sort of reality TV star, tonight it was Millie MacIntosh from Made in Chelsea.

Scottish actress Karen Gillan who won Scottish Icon of the Year.

2012 St Andrews Links Trophy – Old Course St Andrews.


Congratulations to Daan Huizing who won the 2012 St Andrews Links Trophy with an incredible score of 23 under par, promptly announcing that he will be turning pro!

Very cold day at St Andrews, but worth it to see some terrific golf being played. Even had to have my gloves on…in June!

Lighting the Jubilee Beacon at Edinburgh Castle…


With more than 4000 Jubilee beacons being lit around the world to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

It was the turn of Edinburgh to light their beacon at the stunning venue of Edinburgh Castle.

I had to be there for 10pm tonight, as I walked up the empty esplanade on my own and knocked on the big castle doors, I was pointed up to Mons Meg, it was a eerie walk up as usually when I visit the Castle it is awash with tourists from all over the world.

Over to General Nick Eeles, Governor of Edinburgh Castle who had the honor of lighting the flame.

Below after it was lit the sunset was stunning with a few onlookers admiring the beacon.
