So Much To Say…

… and so little time and energy! Sorry for lack of updates, folks, but I’ve been a tad busy. I’ve got plenty of blogs brewing that have yet to make their way onto the screen but I thought I’d just give you a quick summary and point you in the direction of a few new photos.

Today was spent cuddling and photographing dogs. In fact, I met and photo’d more than 30 of ‘em at the Glasgow Vet School Rodeo. Amazing event and great fun, despite a biting wind. I even popped into the reptile tent and was talked into holding a snake. I survived but I think I prefer them through a very long lens. I’ll have all the doggy photos online soon but, for now, you can check out my pictures from last year’s Rodeo here, featuring dogs, a lamb, sheep, a calf, ferrets, birds of prey and duck herding.

Puffins! I’ve put a few of my new puffin photos online. Lots more to come. They are ADORABLE.

Talking of adorable, have you ever seen a baby meerkat? Well, please step this way and prepare to squeal. I photo’d a baby and three adult meerkats at St. Andrews Aquarium last week. Lots to tell about that so please watch this space.

And now for something completely different. Here are my X Factor Live Tour Photos featuring One Direction, Matt Cardle, Rebecca Ferguson, Cher Lloyd, Paije Richardson, Katie Waissel, Aiden Grimshaw and the legendary Wagner.

On top of all of that, I’ve walked on fire (I raised over £400 for OneKind!), done a really successful headshot shoot, taken some pictures of a great Quarriers project, done my first wedding (as second shooter for the fabulous One Big Picture Photography), picked up some great tips at the Photovision Roadshow, and managed an ounce of a social life at Edinburgh’s Twestival. I’ll tell you more about some of them soon.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and lie down ;)

Twisted Firewalker

I’m going to walk on fire. It’s just a small step away from walking on water although that may be a literal step if it goes wrong on the day. It’s all happening on the 27th March, on the hallowed turf of Hampden Park, a short crawl from home and A&E. I have every eventuality covered.

The firewalk is to raise money for OneKind (formerly Advocates for Animals), a brilliant animal charity. Visit www.onekind.org to find out more about them and have a look at their clever film trailer hoax. It stars Angus MacInnes, who you may recognise from Star Wars. I recognised him as Sonny from River City but that says more about me than him.

OneKind’s video excited thousands of sci-fi fans across the world and went on to win a Movieviral award. Please do watch it.

I photographed OneKind’s first firewalk last year and was hugely impressed by the staff, the organisation, and the preparation for the firewalkers. I didn’t take much persuasion when the team asked me take part this year.

I’ll tell you all about it once I’ve recovered. In the meantime, feel free to donate a little bit of money to help the charity’s great work :)

Thank you!
