Fearless photographers and other goals for 2017

Fearless photographers and other goals for 2017
Hulla everyone! I received a really interesting enquiry yesterday and to be fair - that's exactly what's motivated me to take a look at my goals for 2017. I can't write this post without giving credit where credit is due so a big shout out to Chris and Kirsten aka Mac & Krusty. One thing that creatives hate is stagnation. The lack of ideas or motivation [...]

Emma & RichardThainstone House & St Machar Cathedral

Emma & Richard
I had an absolute pleasure photographing Emma and Richard on their wedding day. We had met for the first time at their engagament shoot at Haddo House just a week before the big day. We thought Emma had twisted her ankle that day. Not the best start if you ask me, but from then onwards everything went as smoothly as possible! I knew we were going to not only create so[...]

I'm proud to welcome Pav to the Photomagician family as the videographer in chief. I tried to brand him Videomagician (you know, since I'm the Photomagician) but he strongly opposed...

Emma & Richard
I'll take any chance I get to take pictures in places like Haddo House. This time, it was for Emma & Richard's engagement session. Located near Tarves in Aberdeenshire, has been owned by the National Trust for Scotland since the late 70's. Funny story with this one. We're right in the middle of winter so the weather was a massive risk and to be fair we've exper[...]

What good are wings without the courage to fly

What good are wings without the courage to fly
I could paint a picture of 2016 with more adjectives than I thought I was capable of remembering. It's been a rollercoaster, a crash course woven of dark calamity and some of the most positive and eye opening moments. I leave this year stronger, smarter, more confident and with a much clearer vision of who I want to be and what I want to do with my time. I've l[...]

How to choose a photographer

How to choose a photographer
So you are getting married. You have booked your venue and now you are looking at booking a photographer. The usual professional photographer vs family friend who happens to take good picture dilemma has been discussed many times. The question I'd like to focus on is... Should you go with the well established photographer just because they are emmm... well establ[...]

Winter autoportrait – Edit

Winter autoportrait - Edit
I had been thinking about taking an autoportrait with a winter-like feel since early Autumn. Then one evening I sat down with G&T in my hand and realised that Bombay Sapphire make the bluest bottles of them all. Winter is cold. Blue is a cold colour. I peeled the labels off the bottle, stuffed the bottle with fairy lights and oh boy, it made for the coolest lamp ever.[...]

Is Macbook pro still magical?

Is Macbook pro still magical?
I've had Apple devices but by no means am I an Apple fanboy. So I'll cut straight to the chase. What’s the deal with these new MacBook Pros?! I've been waiting for the release of the new model for a while now. Buying a dated machine seemed a bit pointless when the brand new, upgraded one was about to be introduced to the global market very soon. Here it is. Bra[...]
