I’ve spent the last two nights lurking with my camera in Faskally Wood, Pitlochry, capturing the beauty of The Enchanted Forest. I’ll tell you more when I’ve fully recovered but, for now, here are a few of my photos. AND you may like to know that they all feature in the new Enchanted Forest calendar for 2013 and it’s available to buy online now. Yup, we really are that fast.*
+++UPDATE+++ The calendar is now available to buy in Fisher’s Hotel and Just The Ticket, both in Atholl Road, Pitlochry.
*Now you know why I need to recover
I’ve spent hours in the Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry over the last few nights, taking photographs to turn into calendars, greetings cards, postcards and prints. I’d love to tell you more but I’m up to my eyes in multi-coloured trees, moon-like objects, leaves and stairs that glow in the dark. *Update!* You can now buy official Enchanted Forest merchandise right here.
I’ve put loads of my Enchanted Forest pictures on my Facebook page. And there are more to come. I hope you like them.
Many, many Paws in the Park at yesterday’s doggy event in Rouken Glen Park. I confess I paid more attention to cuddles than photos but I hope you like this lot. It was incredibly hard not to take some of the puppies home.
I spent last weekend at T in the Park, shooting promotional pictures for the festival organisers, DF Concerts, and I found a little time to photograph a few bands. Lots more to show’n'tell soon but here are some photos of Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Slash and Ocean Colour Scene.
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.
On Friday 18th February 2011, a motley crew of story enthusiasts gathered at the Conway Hall in London to learn and be inspired. This is the second year Matt Locke has produced ‘The Story‘ and it was, once again, a fantastic event.
We were treated to fascinating insights and displays from Margaret Robertson, The Ministry of Stories, Blast Theory, Adam Curtis, Karl James, Cornelia Parker, Phil Gyford, Paul Bennun & Nick Ryan, Mary Hamilton, Lucy Kimbell, Martin Parr, Graham Linehan & Cory Doctorow, and Mark Stevenson. A last minute apology from Tim Kring (he of ‘Heroes’ fame) was a disappointment but, even without this star attraction, it didn’t feel like anything was missing.
My notes have turned into event minutes but if you’re just looking for a quick fix, here are a few of my favourite things:
“Every choice we make, even down to the jewellery or clothes we choose to wear or not wear, has an impact on the story we broadcast that day.” – Margaret Robertson
“Sometimes the story is not where/what we expect it to be.”
“Thank you for listening.” – Karl James
“eBay is full of stories”. – Cornelia Parker
“You can go anywhere with a camera, you can gatecrash people’s lives”.
“Photos capture the truth about who we are”. – Martin Parr
“The cat’s going to die, and Roy and Moss have to show it a good time. It’s an eight year old cat so what do eight year olds like? They take the cat to see Santa. They’re in floods of tears. It’s tragic.” – Graham Linehan
[Re: Father Ted night/Twitter]
Graham Linehan: “It was nothing too unusual.”
Cory Doctorow: “I’ve had Twin Peaks marathons that David Lynch didn’t join me for!”
Graham Linehan: “I’m annoyingly available.”
“This could be a renaissance, not just damage limitation. We have everything to play for.”
“The future cannot happen until we change our minds to meet it.”
“Cheer up, it may happen.” – Mark Stevenson
And there’s more. If you want to meet The Pedicurist, hear about Martin Parr’s close encounter with a shark and a wine glass, and find out how I got shot in the shoulder then please read on. I make no apologies for luring you in with sensationalist headlines. I do, however, make apologies for any inaccuracies I’ve made.
Okay, feel free to read the long version now.
