Engagement Photoshoot with Lauren and Scott

So it was a little later than intended, but we finally got to have a little photoshoot. It had been planned for earlier in the year but things didn’t work out so this past weekend we managed to get out around Broughty Ferry for some pictures of Lauren and Scott who got engaged on Christmas day! Here are a couple of the pictures from the day, and it was great fun seeing them both.

Iceland

Having recently returned from a trip to Iceland I’m still working my way through the pictures. I’ve managed to get a few out into the wild so far and they can be seen on my Flickr account. But as more pictures become available I’ll start adding them to this site as well like the Reykjavik panorama below.

I’m quite happy with how this image has come out. Especially considering it’s made of 11 photos taken hand-held. This is the view out across the bay from near the Harpa building.

Very Cold Sunset

Tonight I took the opportunity to get out with the camera around sunset time in Tayport, Fife. Out on the beach it was very exposed and the wind was freezing. I still managed to get a few shots. This one is a panorama of 5 photos.

Sunset on the Red Planet

I took this shot last Friday from Broughty Ferry. I knew the grad filter I was using would give a colour cast but I wasn’t quite expecting this when I downloaded the pictures. I haven’t emphasised the colours in the picture, just improved the contrast a little for the rocks.

Balgay Hill

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to properly get out with my camera. Obviously there’s been the usual Christmas occasions when it’s found its way out of my bag, but other than that I’ve done very little with it recently. I did get a few nice pictures of Christmas decorations but only put the one up on Flickr. Well now I’m back to try and make sure I upload things more often. Starting with a few picture from Balgay Hill in Dundee. I’m lucky enough to have this park and cemetery almost literally on my doorstep!

Movember

Well with it coming to the end of November now there is no shortage of ‘interesting’ facial hair going around 🙂

Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be able to grow anything visible within a month so I never try to take part, but several of the guys in the office do. I managed to grab a few today for a quick photo and thought I’d share. Two of them are taking part and the third is doing it out of sympathy.

I’ll let you guess which one that is!

Busy Weekend

Just had a very busy weekend which involved a lot of driving!

After having lunch with my cousin and his new Fiancee, I took them out for a quick, impromptu engagement shoot on Aberdeen beach. To Ross and Sophie, thanks for being good sports and putting up with the cold! I’ll update this post with pictures when I get a chance to go through them.

Edit: Here are some of the pictures of Ross and Sophie!

Guy Fawkes Night – Fireworks

“Remember, remember, the fifth of November, Gunpowder Treason and Plot”

Well another 5th of November has come round and that means Fireworks night in the UK!

Really that just means another excuse to take the camera out. So here are a few of the shots from the Lochee fireworks display in Dundee (and one of a sparkler in the back garden afterwards).

Some Autumn Leaves…

Managed to get a few minutes out with my camera yesterday to try and get a few autumn shots before all the lovely golden leaves blow away. I totally wasn’t prepared for how cold it was though and only lasted about 5 minutes!

Site redesign

Just a quick post to update on the site redesign.

The content up to now has been very stagnant and in need of an update. This is the first step in that process.

I hope to keep the site more up to date and inline with what I’m doing.
