A few months have gone by without this blog seeing any new photographs. That’s a shame, specially when there’s so much I want to share on here. In my defence, I have to say that the end of last year and beginning of 2015 was an extremely busy period. With a bit more of time in my hands at the moment, I’m working on some new content. I want to show you those beautiful weddings we did last year and also some of my music, arts and event photography. Let’s start right now…
Back at the end of 2013 when I made the jump to full-time photography, the plan was finding a good balance between my commercial photography (which usually involves working with local art organisations) and my wedding photography (which usually involves working with some awesome couples). Then 2014 came along and I found myself very busy with the wedding photography side of my business – not that I’m complaining as it was a fantastic year! But it meant that finding the time to do other things was tricky and I have to admit that I like seeing some variety in my work.
One of those other thing that I had very little time for was drawing; the other one was music photography. Music was what got me into photography in the first place and Scotland proved to be the right place for it. I’ve met fantastic people attending to gigs and festivals, including Rhiannon and Calum who I met at Insider Festival and trusted me to shoot their wedding. I like photographing gigs, the action on stage, the funny colour lighting, the atmosphere… I’m trying to find that balance again, to find the time to be a music photographer at least for a night.
This was one of those nights. American indie band The Decemberist played the O2 Academy Glasgow last February with support from English songwriter Serafina Steer. I took these photos for Glasgow’s popular music blog Rave Child. You can read their review here.
