At last I am updating to the rest of my Scottish trip, with a few more pictures from some of the fab photographers I worked with up there – another great time packed with loads of interesting things to see and experience.
So another week in Scotland began, after catching a very early taxi to the airport, grabbing some refreshing green tea and buying new books to read on my travels, I was feeling more awake by the time I landed in the crisp morning air of Inverness! I had a great start, enjoying a very fun shoot with the lovely Paul Hirst at a beautiful boutique hotel with pretty chandeliers and gorgeous furnishings – I love the rainbow velvet chairs – lush!
And then more fabric swirling the following day at Elgin Studio… Wow look at that gold!!
After my Studio Day in Elgin, I headed on the train to visit my friend Alex Ingram, and we ended up having a lovely sightseeing day out to the Isle of Skye. The weather wasn’t quite suitable for model pictures (super blustery!) but he took some great pictures of me around the island and on the Quirrang… thank you Alex!
Next up I have some pictures from my shoot with John McCairn who picked me up from my b&b in Dundee and took us to an old rail station location, where we could shoot inside the vintage carriages – so cool! They even had the segregated little train booths with sliding doors. So fun, and beautiful light captured by John.
These ones below are from my shoot with Sarah Takahashi & Mike Fraser up near Aberdeen. As if I hadn’t been spoilt enough already working in such amazing locations, we snuck into an old derelict mansion (through a hole in the fence that was totally there already of course) full of broken staircases and textured walls. Then continued urban exploring (more naughty sneaking and climbing of walls) into an abandoned mill factory – so atmospheric and exciting! Broken glass windows letting in evening light, graffitti walls, burnt out floors, plants growing through the roof and threatening, open lift shafts looming with darkness. I can’t believe some people go round these places for kicks at nighttime in the pitch black – they are creepy enough in the day!
And some pictures from a last minute organised shoot with Bob Falconer at the Bon Accord Photography Studio, before I got my flight home… some paintily, art inspired styles for moody portraits and nudes, and fresh flowers for pretty headshots. Hope you like! 🙂
