Lilith Etch – January 2024 – Part 1

Once again my friend and co-creator / accomplice Lilith Etch returned to Scotland during January and so I was able to spend some time working with her.

We did some outdoor work, despite the cold and I am genuinely in awe of Lilith’s ability to work this way, and we experimented indoors with my super wide M mount lens, and we finally got around to shooting some decorative Shibari.

Over the next few days I will be posting some images, so do keep coming back to see what’s coming next, but for now here’s a little taster…

Photo Galavanting – Ayr and Dunure

For about the last. year or so I have been, from time to time, heading out on wee Photography day safaris with my friend Becky. She and I met about a year ago and became fast friends, bonding over Photography, Star Trek and a number of other fandoms. It’s been lovely to make a new friend, at a time in life when new friends are so often an elusive possibility, and to have an accomplice with whom I know I we are both free is likely to be up for heading somewhere new or familiar, camera in hand, to explore, be outdoors and generally goof around whilst also giving new approaches and new subjects a try.

Last Sunday we went to Ayr beach, each of us just with one camera, one prime, to see what the day would bring and have fun with photography, and I got some really great photos that I am proud of, and so did she. That and we got to walk on the beach, which is always great, but was especially nice due to the fabulous Indian Summer we are having at the moment. We went on to explore Dunure, a small and delightfully quaint fishing village with a ruined castle, lovely and well preserved harbour, just a quarter of an hour or so down the old coast road to the south of Ayr.

I should mention, while I have your attention Dear Reader, that Becky is a fantastic photographer and artist – she was short listed for the Aesthetica Prize this year. You can find out more about her and her work here – Becky Probert Photography – I am very pleased that she chose to feature a portrait that I took on that page.

Anyhow, here’s some photos from the day in question…

Tink in Strathard – June 2023

Glen Arklet – Summer Golden Hour

I happened to check the weather on Tuesday and realised that I ought to be able to capture a good shot of Glen Arklet on my way home from dropping the kids with their Mum…

I really am never going to grow tired of this view.

James Yorkston & Lizabett Russo – Live at Gartmore Village Hall – 09-11-2022

This last Wednesday, on the ninth of November 2002, James Yorkston played the Village Hall in Gartmore, supported by Lizabett Russo.

The music was fantastic, but as an added bonus for me, I was able to take photos, so here are a few of each act.

Artemis Fauna in Strathard

I spent a day with Artemis Fauna this week, making art in the secret places around Strathard; here are a few of the images we made…
