Spectrum is a week long solo exhibition showcasing a range of my photographic works at the Gayfield Gallery in Edinburgh. Due to launch with a private viewing on Friday 17th April the exhibition consists of a variety of images from Scottish landscape and still life photography, through to macro and digitally manipulated imagery. All exhibited works as well as additional prints will be for sale. The exhibition will be open to public viewing from April 18th – 23rd between 10am and 6pm. @gayfieldsq #edinburgh #photography #Gayfield
Following on from a previous project of the same name Artificial Anatomy 2.0 will further explore the same themes of surface, shape and volume. These are a selection of test images intended to explore how the surface the skull is partially defined by a series of randomly projected contours and linear forms. Whilst the shape and form of the skull is partially revealed by the projected image the random spacing and shape of the lines also begin to warp the shape of the subject, producing some interesting results.
Jocktoberfest is an annual beer festival that takes place in early September at the Black Isle brewery, just north of Inverness. Aside from drinking copious amounts of outstanding beer and occasionally rolling off hay bales I did find some time to capture a few images of the weekend. Highly recommended!
Having recently purchased a macro lens for my camera I thought I’d give it a trial run. This series of images features regular soap bubbles shot using the macro lens with the aid of a couple of speed lights and a soft box. When illuminated the right way the vivd colours and organic shapes visible on the surface of these short-lived spheres are truly amazing.
En route to take some shots for a friend we took an unscheduled detour in order to check out a small abandoned cottage just off the main road. What we found was the kind of place a photographer could literally spend hours taking shots. Rotten floorboards, mouldy walls, retro wallpaper and general decaying interiors… amazing stuff.
