Hashtag Unplug The Wedding
Being a photographer I've learned that there are 3 main approaches that couples who are to be married take when it comes to their guests and cameras. Couple number one does not pay attention to it at all. What difference does it make really? It's a natural thing that everyone has their iphones in their pockets and that people who like photography will bring their D[...]

Instagram business or personal account

Instagram business or personal account
Why did I change my instagram business account back to personal You guyzzzz, I've been ill for the last week. I've spent a lot of time checking the stats of my instagram posts and trying to understand why it is, that my instagram posts don't seem to reach as many people as they used to, so to take my mind off the manflu (no one seems to appreciate what a man feels [...]

Do I run my business wearing PJ’s?

Do I run my business wearing PJ's?
I opened my mailbox and read the message from potential clients. One sentence in particular drew my attention. "Do you have a studio where we could meet you?" - they asked. All of a sudden I felt a bit embarrassed. Like I should have a studio in Aberdeen and working from home is not professional. So it got me thinking. Do I need a studio? Would it not be nice to ha[...]

New age of digital delivery

New age of digital delivery
I am absolutely thrilled to say that as of this month I am delivering all client galleries through Pixieset! In the past, digital photos would have been shared on a DVD or USB stick. That means often leaving the clients scrambling to optimize them for different purposes or find a way to share them with friends and family. Today, all photo sharing problems disap[...]

“A voyage to land of the littles” #1 – Conceptual Photography

So a few days ago I was taking a walk in the Tyrebagger forest, enjoying the fresh air, listening to the sounds of the nature. With so many interesting things around I stopped and admired this stump protruding from the ground, covered in bright green moss. It felt as if so much of the forest was coming back to life... Then I noticed this little guy! Model: Dav[...]

“Expecto Patronum” – Conceptual Photography

Needless to say I was quite excited to work on a HarryPotter theme. I was/still am a huge fan of the series. "A Patronus is a kind of positive force, and for the wizard who can conjure one, it works something like a shield, with the Dementor feeding on it, rather than him. In order for it to work, you need to think of a memory. Not just any memory, a very happy me[...]

“When I Play” – Conceptual Photography

David is a composer, pianist and oboist. He’s about to start his postgrad studies @ Princeton University, which means he will be moving to United States soon. Before he does I wanted to capture his personality on a photo. The topic was “Lanterns”. PS. I’ve had very little time to devote to my conceptual projects lately. Luckily, the summer is almost here, the days[...]
