Pictures for training module for LearnPro for NHS Scotland

Shot in the ward training wing at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh it felt like shooting in an episode of Casualty. Thanks to Rachel Lees and LeanrPro for the opportunity to do the shoot for you. And thanks for your feedback.

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the pics, they are just what we needed and the turn around was so quick.” Rachel Lees LearnPro.

3 Rifles Summer Fancy Dress Ball

Dropped off a huge 40”x30” photograph at 3 Rifles today. It was a composite of 40 images from the summer fancy dress ball in July. Not done this before so a bit of a risk at £50 a print if you get it wrong. Anyway after about 2 hours planning, layout, off to Loxley Colour pro printers it came back. Well chuffed at the outcome. Only problem was I put on the floor at home where I thought it was out of the way, but my wife found a way to stand on it. So had to get another one done. So didn’t make much money on the job in the end.

Hotel Photography – the Place Hotel Edinburgh

Just started early stages of covering a new hotel development – The Place – on York Place for Neil Ellis. Keen for some VERY early shots to be able to start on line marketing we mocked some nearly ready bedrooms and a hotel reception that was a little way off from welcoming  its first guests.

Looks like it is going to be quite a stunning addition to the hotel scene in the city and I am looking forward to shooting further stages as more areas come into operation. Thanks Neil for asking and trusting this project to me. Look forward to a glass of fizz on the opening!! Cheek but yer gorrra ask!

Interiors Photography

Shoot for two  little apartments in the Grassmarket and Victoria Terrace owned by very enterprising young lady with a real sense of design and style. I was most impressed by the development of her two properties and her ideas for expansion in the self catering market in Edinburgh.

PR Photographer Edinburgh – Taste of Spain 2011

A real weekend fiesta of Spanish dance, music, food and a giant paella helped brighten an at times wet Spanish Tourist Board promo event on The Mound Edinburgh.

Spain’s principle holiday areas were there to promote a sun destination which wasn’t lost on a somewhat damp Saturday (Sunday turned out good). I was booked for 2nd year by Lotus UK the London PR agency appointed by the Spanish Touroist Board.

Wedding photography John Hope Gateway Edinburgh

Lisa and Jamie were married in Thailand a few weeks before they had their reception back in Scotland in June 2011.

I had the pleasure of photographing them along with family and friends at the fabulous John Hope Gateway at the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. A chilly (June!) night didn’t put Lisa off from photos around the gardens and at the Glasshouse which she had visited often since childhood. There are too many great locations to choose from so we weren’t stuck for choice. 

“Thank you so much for the photos which we received.
They are fantastic, there are some real special ones there which I am looking forward to developing, framing and showing off!!
Many thanks again for all your efforts, you really captured the whole evening and for all your help and patience with all my requests!”

Lisa.

Last minute lip touch up from sister.
