On a Bus with The Four Seasons Some days you gets photo calls where all your favourite things all happen at the one time. I am a fan of a bus tour, I like the theatre and I like a visit to the Baby Grand. I had the good fortune to be asked to cover the photo call for the production of the Oliver…

Bright Sparks I met some total bright sparks this month. The youngsters at the new IntoUniversity facility based at The Maryhill Hub in in the Wyndford, Glasgow. The new centre, along with IntoUniversity Govan, Glasgow and intoUniversity Craigmillar, Edinburgh are part of ground breaking collaboration between the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh and education charity IntoUniversity to provide additional educational support to…

You Never Know Who You Will See at the Bus Stop I was never a huge Osmonds fan. Probably Donny & Marie were more my age group. I was photographing Jay Osmond who was at The Kings Theatre in Glasgow to launch his show ‘The Osmonds : A New Musical’. Written by Jay it tells the story of him and his brothers who became…

A Year In Pictures I spent some time going through my favourite pictures from 2021. I was worried that I might not have as many pictures to choose from, as we had spent so much of the year in covid restrictions and the lockdown of the first three months of 2021. When I put together my slide show I was really pleased with it….

Glasgow Basket Brigade Appeal Starts the Christmas Season I met a great bunch of people at their new offices on Bath Street. The Nine Twenty Recruitment team, instead of  participating in their Secret Santa, were supporting the Glasgow Basket Brigade Christmas Appeal. The team all  created and donated Christmas Gift Baskets. The Glasgow Basket Brigade is now in its third year.  The appeal was…

November 2021

COP 26 November was such a busy month. I really didn’t think I would be having much to do with COP26. All the reports had been to stay away from the city and I thought let’s hope all my jobs are outside Glasgow. However all that quickly changed. I ended up working for an English, a Canadian and the United Arab Emirates clients for…

Getting a lift to the Usher Hall in James Bond’s Aston Martin I am a fan of old cool cars. I have always loved the look and shape of them. I once, pre-children,  had an old MGB which was a bit of an old banger with no heater, a leaky cloth roof and smelt vaguely of petrol and oil. So imagine my delight when…

A Show For Normal People I was at The Theatre Royal in Glasgow to photograph Grayson Perry recently. During lockdown we had watched his Art Club programme on Channel 4, it was quite an emotional show and summed up a lot about how art helped people overcome the restrictions of the pandemic. We went outside to take some pictures with the theatre in the…

Mirrors on Loch Lomond I love working with creative people. It’s great to have conversations and see ideas come to life in front of my eyes. One such talent is Creative producer Guy Veale at the launch of Ùrlar, an experimental theatre production commissioned by National Trust for Scotland, which will take place at the conservation charity’s Ben Lomond site. We were working with…

A Sight for Sore Eyes What a treat to get away on holiday. Our trip to Tiree was cancelled last year and held over to this year. I was getting worried we would not make it. However we did and it was super. As always I had my camera with me. You never know if an assignment will present itself.  We had and evening…
