Lunch with an Old Bag!


This is my sixth year photographing Lunch with an Old Bag and it just gets bigger and better!

LWOB is an annual charity fundraiser on behalf of the Prince’s Trust Scotland at Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh courtesy of owner James Thomson OBE and  raised a whopping £706,593!

The event was attended by a host of stars, including disco legends Sister Sledge, who doesn’t remember dancing to “we are family” and “lost in music” still sounded as good today and brought back some great memories from when I was a teenager at the local disco!

I missed out on seeing comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli at the Fringe so this was a great surprise and he didn’t disappoint!

The Prince’s Trust Ambassadors Ball


The Prince’s Trust Ambassadors Ball

Another great fundraising night by the Prince’s Trust to celebrate some of their young ambassadors, an elegant black tie event with auctions, fashion show by Basler and a special performance by 2011 x-factor runner-up Marcus Collins.

The event was held at the luxurious Grand Central Hotel Glasgow, having shot a few different events a this wonderful hotel I know what to expect in the way of the lighting set up they use and also access to the stage areas and any other last minute requests that always crop up on the night!

First up after dinner was the fashion show by Basler, a great collection of evening wear.

Just before Marcus Collins preformed I set up to do a quick portrait of him in the corridor as he was going in to the Ball Room.

Room service anyone!


Usually I would get this kind of job in August, during the Edinburgh International Festival!
Launch of a lovely new hotel in Edinburgh, Hotel Indigo…not much to see from the outside but great spacious contemporary rooms inside (I get to see a lot of hotel rooms in my job!).
So the hook is book a room, order room service and on the menu, an award-winning comedian in Janey Godley will come up with your club sandwich and do a 10-minute performance in your room!

10 minutes of Glaswegian humour at it’s best!
Best way to start a Monday morning.
