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.

The intricacies and structural details found within any animal skull offer an amazing wealth of tone and texture for a photographer to capture. These photographs were taken of a Ram skull acquired from a friend of mine. When shot under controlled studio lighting, the surface texture and shape of the skull really come to life… so to speak. The skull offers something entirely different when shot from each angle. Things also start to get interesting when I begin fusing the images together in post.

These are some of the images I captured whilst scoping out potential spaces for some lifestyle photography for a popular whisky brand. These shot were taken in a vast neo-classical mansion set in 5,000 acres of land on the coast just outside of Edinburgh. As well as it’s immaculately kept classic interiors it also contains some truly run-down, dark and dirty spaces that make for some amazing photographic opportunities. An amazing place!
