Here’s what happened at the launch of my exhibition! Brilliant video by Woods Noble Media (if you excuse the fact I’m in it). The exhibition run has been extended so my pictures will now be decorating the walls of Curlers Rest until the 14th August.
You can see what happened behind the scenes during the set up of my exhibition launch in this video.
I’m delighted to announce I’ve been selected as a finalist for Young Business of the Year at the Association of Scottish Businesswomen Awards. Clearly, the ‘young’ is in relation to the business, not my age
Read all about it on the Scottish Women in Business website and cross your fingers for me in September when the winner is announced!
I photographed April’s Scottish Women in Business meeting at Tapela in Glasgow. I learned that trying to eat, network, gossip, listen and take photographs at the same time is nigh on impossible. Fun night though, as ever.
I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be launching my Photo Showcase at Curlers Rest in Glasgow’s West End on Wednesday 11th May 2011. I’ll be taking over the walls of their upstairs bar for a couple of months, showing puffins, meerkats, creative abstracts and aspects of Scotland.
I’m using this as an excuse for a wee get-together on the night. A tweetup, a party, an excuse for me to wear a nice frock. If you’d like to come along from 8pm on Wednesday night then please RSVP on the Eventbrite page.
I’ve been selected as one of the Top 100 Freelancers by The Drum magazine! I’d love to tell you more and to send you to an online feature but I’ve yet to get hold of a copy of the magazine and it’s not on the website. So you’ll just have to trust me on this. I’ll post a photo of the feature when I see it.
I only started my business a year ago so I’m very, very happy about this and my Event Photographer of the Year nomination. I have high hopes and big plans for the future, and these accolades are a huge boost to my profile and my confidence. Thank you to everyone who nominated me. It’s much appreciated.
As if I’d ask for votes. As if! I’m merely informing you that voting has begun for the Scottish New Music Industry Awards and I happen to be one of the contenders for Event Photographer of the Year. I am ridiculously excited about it and will be crossing my fingers and holding my breath until the August deadline.
Anybody can vote but only one vote per IP address is permitted. You’ll find the voting form on the Scottish New Music Industry Awards website right now.
There are 27 categories including Live Club, Sound Engineer, Concert Venue, Media Person, Event, Director, Poster Artist, Radio Show and Record Label. I could go on but you’ll see them for yourself when you go to vote, won’t you?
I’m delighted to say I’ve been nominated for Event Photographer of the Year in the Scottish New Music Awards 2011! I received my certificate on the anniversary of the first day of my post-BBC life. That felt quite poignant. Thanks so much to those of you who voted for me, it’s very much appreciated.
Unsurprisingly, I will be shouting about this a few more times before the winner is announced in September (I know, I can’t believe it’s that far away!) but I thought it was about time I shouted about it on my website. Voting begins online on the 2nd May. In the celebrated words of Rebecca Black, “I so excited!”.
I’ve hooked up with Revolver PR a couple of times in the last few months (some of my photos have been used in their caption competition and I provided a raffle prize for their International Women’s Day/Oxfam event) and I’ve now been featured on their website.
They asked me all sorts of difficult questions about what my business is about, who inspires me, what digital can be used to address, and where I’ll be in five years. Apparently my answers sound surprisingly intelligent, which has shocked my friends and family.
Please pop over to the Revolver PR site to have a read and let me know what you think.
Did you know you can buy the ACTUAL moon? Uh-huh! It’ll be for sale in The Life Craft in Glasgow’s West End on Sunday 13th February. You’ll also find puffins, a squirrel, some pink stairs, weirdly-lit trees and some cuddling condiments. That’s the West End for you, dahling.
I’m donning my Del-Boy coat again to sell prints and cards. The Life Craft is just along the road from Oran Mor, it’s indoors (such a relief after my experience at Sloans), it’s buggy-friendly, and it’ll be full of lovely people selling clever crafty things. They also have coffee. What more could you ask for?
