Daffodils growing during the months of spring are a refreshing sight after a harsh winter. These were a few I had in a vase on my table. When they did eventually expire I decided to capture some shots of them against a matte black background with the aid of two remote speedlights… some interesting and rather abstract results.
Whilst staying in a small remote cottage on the isle of Skye in early march we were greeted with a rare glimpse of a clear night full of stars. Apparently the illusive northern lights were visible the night before we arrived. Although they refused to make an appearance whilst we were staying on the Island this rare view of the night sky was still as impressive as ever. I was even able to capture trails of passing satellites in some of the long exposures.
Whilst waiting for the ferry back from Askaig on Islay I had a brief walk around the fishing port. There’s something I really love about the colours and textures you can find whilst walking amongst the old boats, ropes and fishing nets. Islay is really an amazing place. I’ll certainly be heading back there soon.
Having recently acquired some amazing vintage starwars toys fresh from the eighties I couldn’t resist capturing a few shots with the aid of several speedlights and some very shallow rim lighting. The resulting images could easily be mistaken for schematics or technical vector graphics.
The Fireside collective is an Edinburgh based events company dedicated to generating interesting, engaging and playful events for small and large gatherings. To mark their launch The Fireside Collective held a pop-up super club at the Freemans Coffee shop in Edinburgh. These are just a few of the shots taken on the night. The very best of luck to them ;-)
Whilst fooling around with a mask acquired from the New York immersive theatre experience sleep no more, I captured this disturbing image of a colleague. Doesn’t he have lovely eyes?
