TV Game Show – And They’re Off!


I had a great day recently shooting a new game show special – And They’re Off! with TV presenter Ore Oduba winner of Strictly Come Dancing.

And They're Off060
Very interesting to see how a TV show is filmed and all comes together, long day for everyone, change of audiences and contestants to film four episodes in one day!

As a photographer technically it’s a bit of a challenge with lighting and keeping out of the way of the camera teams and crew while filming is going on, as well as the sound issues from my camera, you have to be a bit of an invisible man at these types of shoots not to be seen and defiantly not heard but still deliver a very high quality set of images.


All in all a great day and Ore was great to work with!

Ross Kemp Behind Bars – Inside Barlinnie


I had a great day with Ross Kemp shooting the stills for his new documentary Ross Kemp Behind Bars – Inside Barlinnie.

Love my job every day is so different I recently spent a day with Ross Kemp in Barlinnie Prison, how else would I get in to Barlinnie (apart from the obvious) what an interesting place a bit of a gold mine for photographers with all the old Victorian architecture.

I had never worked with Ross before and like most of us I had only built up a picture form his TV appearances, but a nicer more helpful guy you could not meet, a pleasure to work with, made my workday a lot easier along with the film crew.

In and out in a day, not many can say that about Barlinnie!

Don’t miss it – tonight STV at 9pm!

Shadows of War Roger Fenton’s Photographs of the Crimea


A great exhibition focusing exclusively on Roger Fenton’s pioneering photographs of the Crimean War, taken in 1855. Fenton was already an accomplished and respected photographer when he was sent by the publishers Agnew’s to photograph a war that pitched Britain, France and Turkey as allies against Russia.  Arriving several months after the major battles were fought in 1854, Fenton focused on creating moving portraits of the troops, as well as capturing the stark, empty battlefields on which so many lost their lives.

 

At The Queen’s Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse until November, well worth a visit.

The Queen’s Garden Party


One day I’ll get a real job!

Those of you who are regulars to my blog will know how much I love my job, and this is one of the reasons why!

I was commissioned to cover The Queen’s Garden Party at The Palace of HolyroodHouse.

I’ve photographed the Royal Family on many an occasion over the years but this is my first garden party.

What a great day and not even a typical Scottish summers day dampened the occasion, everyone I spoke to and photographed were loving it, from the ladies of the woman’s institute to serving and ex members of our amazing armed forces.

 

 

The Cloisters with an Iphone


I was passing Glasgow University yesterday and had a spare 15 mins to kill on the way to a job, and I love the Hunterian Museum but no time, so decided on a walk round the fabulous cloisters…again and a quick pic with my iphone!

Tartan Gig 2017


 

 

 

 

Covered a fantastic gig on Saturday at the Glasgow SSE Hydro!

Tartan Gig 2017 the Girlguiding concert, very busy day as I was the only official photographer and tasked to cover everything!

With it all going on at the same time as the concert, first two songs shoot some fans enjoying the concert and get back stage for some shots of the artists at the media board, all in all a great day and a very happy client.

Not exactly my sort of music but you have to appreciate live gigs.

Louisa Johnson was amazing and the very energetic John Newman was a challenge to capture!
