Last Sunday I was present for the UK’s first iPhoneography day at an Apple Store. The guys at Glasgow’s Buchanan Street branch set it up and invited me to take part and do a couple of short presentations throughout the day.

As a small boy in the 70’s I once spent a day out and about shopping with my mum dressed as Dr Who. Well, actually it was Tom Bakers Dr Who. I was probably around 10 or 11. I didn’t know it then but that was my introduction to Cosplay.
Somewhere in my Heart: Aztec Camera A star above the city in the northern chill A baby being born to the overkill No say, no place to go A tv and a radio Ambition and love wearing boxing gloves And singing hearts and flowers But somewhere in my heart there is a star that shines […]
Killermont St, Aztec Camera And with collar upturned I made it south to see That the love I had spurned Was just the hate in me As the ships and the steel Slip away to the cry of “compete” There’s a message for us We can get there by bus From Killermont St Killermont Street […]
Your swaying arms: Deacon Blue One day I can see us walking Arm and arm in sheltered Kelvin Way Talking and tripping and teasing And heading for the best part of the day When your head will fall softly on our pillow No fear will make you cry or turn grey We will wake so […]

Well, it’s nearly the middle of the month and the blog hasn’t been updated. There has been a reason though. I have been working on a few projects in the background. Some are conceptual and others are just aesthetically pleasing to me. I’m a bit paranoid so I haven’t wanted to put any of the […]
So I have plans for some photoshoots this month. Quite a lot of ideas actually. Of course as is the way with me i wonder whether my ideas are beyond my capabilities. So, in order to make sure I don’t waste a pile of money hiring locations and models I decided to try out some […]
I spent a few hours today trying to find an old image i took in february 2009 with my old DSLR. My wife wanted to use it for some purpose or other. I opened up lightroom for the first time in about 2yrs to try to find it but to no avail. Dug out […]
A previously unpublished image of Battersea Power Station
I have been asked in comments section on original post about “the girl who likes hats“, how I took and post processed the images. So this is a very short piece about that. First off. My mum is old and frail and can’t stay standing for long so I had to use a comfortable low […]
My mum: She has Alzeihmers. It wasn’t a shock to find out when it was eventually diagnosed as my grandmother had it as well. My gran moved in to live with our family shortly after her husband died in the 70’s. I remember as a small boy thinking she was quite mad and I am […]
