Light and dark - it almost embodies the true essence of the Yin yoga practice. A shot from my recent photo-shoot with Edinburgh yoga teacher Paula Radziszewska. Low-key lighting adds a whole new level of energy to an image, and I loved this one!

Looking forward to another creative session at the end of the month! ☺

A few images from an LVIA shoot I did last week on the summit of a Scottish Munro. I had been waiting for over five weeks for conditions to be suitable, and this was a tiny window, however it proved a good one! As an experienced mountain walker, I'm always happy to conduct remote work, providing there's an agreed emergency action plan and risk assessment in place. In this instance SNH were insisting to my c...

There are so many styles and approaches to portraiture. For me, both the beauty and the challenge, is capturing a moment that is natural and true. So my approach is to stand off and wait, using a lens with a longer focal length to retain some degree of anonymity amongst the picture.

I shot this worker harvesting incense sticks on the outskirts of Hanoi during a recent trip to Vietnam. Whilst the colours of t...

The floating fishing villages of Cat Ba, Vietnam. I've been enjoying catching up with the edit's from this trip - the gridded lines caught my attention here, and when looking down from my drone I was struck by the patterns and shapes of these anchored platforms. The locals have lived on these floating islands for hundreds of years, fishing the waters and living their daily lives.

It also reminded me of the g...

Faced a bit of a windswept LVIA shoot in the Cairngorm's yesterday; it was lovely to be back out in the mountains, even if the winter conditions prove a bit of a challenge for my fingers...that sunset on the drive home made it all worthwhile though - what a beaut!

One of the challenges I love most about photography, is capturing a moment that tells a story. This shot is from my recent trip to Vietnam, and is taken from an incense village on the outskirts of Hanoi. The entire village is a production platform for incense, and I walked the streets for several hours in total admiration of the skills, dedication and method required to create these striking products. The v...

The winter time can be pretty special for sunsets, and I enjoyed this one in Wales last week! My trip south finished off with a little shoot in Yorkshire yesterday and now i'm back in Edinburgh to catch up with the edits. #sunset #landscapephotography #wales #goldenhour

So this is my latest little video project. For anyone considering yoga as a way of calming the inner mind, giving your body some time and appreciation, stretching out muscles, or simply meeting great people... I would strongly recommend you give it ago. Perhaps this will tempt your curiosity.

The team at East Side Yoga are brilliant, and we had a great time shooting this brand video. I filmed everything hand...

Out and about for four nights of LVIA night photography this week in Newcastle - it's too bad I can't teleport myself between locations, however I'll take consecutive days of suitable weather! Love these crisp nights where the air is so clear :)

Enjoyed another venture south to film Lingo24's 'Global First' event in London. I enjoyed two very interesting speakers and gathered some nice content from that man Christian Arno and guests. As beautiful as Edinburgh is, little gigs like these are always a welcome day out.

Then it was back up the road to process the footage, prepare for another couple of projects that have appeared for next week, and finish...
