A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post about a peculiar piece of mail I received: a handwritten note from a supposed acquaintance known only as “J” attached to an article apparently torn from a newspaper.  The article described the life changing business advice of a particular business coach, the implication of J’s …

A number of unrelated events led my thoughts to the subject of this blog post: a visit from a local camera club, a talk with my good friend at Somerville Photography and viewing the now ubiquitous Battle at F-Stop Ridge.  I had considered a similar project based around photographers in a military recreation, one that …

Any professional in any industry will tell you the same story: the moment you register as a business you will be inundated with calls and e-mails from advertisers trying to sell you everything from newspaper pages to designer stationary.  For the most part it is bland and easily ignored. Once in a while you’ll get …

It’s been quite some time since I posted on the blog and I think the best explanation is found in a recent tale of my life. Glasgow University Media week is an occasion when individuals working professionally in the media are invited to give talks at the university.  This year the renowned Tommy Wan was …

After lots of tweaking, editing, googling of various web design solutions I’ve finally managed to reach a point where I’m happy with the website.  It’s been a long road getting here, from a website I liked the look of but couldn’t update to one I could update but tried to avoid the sight of, I …

A collection of work from more than 20 artists will be exhibited on the walls from the 27th …

I recieved a most interesting piece of mail today: It came through the door in a handwritten envelope with the note attached.  At first I was curious as to whom I know by the name of ‘J’ that might be thinking of me while browsing through their copy of the times however on surface inspection …

As with 90% of the Glasgow fashion scene I attended the POSED magazine launch at Classic Grand.  I’ve attended a magazine launch before so was expecting a similar affair but I was very pleasantly surprised by the scale and professionalism of the launch. The stage shows were particularly entertaining; I’ve never actually seen a burlesque …

Today was the first of the two part open day I hosted in the studio.  I’d advertised on model networking sites and received a response that was too large to host on one day so I split it over the full weekend. I’d like to thank Daniel, Kevin, Lisa, Chris, Jay and Andrew for coming …
