Yuli and Callum - Wedding Photography - Dunkeld Wedding

I had a great day working as a 2nd shooter with photographer Lauren McGlynn at the weekend for the wedding of Yuli and Callum at a stately home in Dunkeld. The wedding was quite unusual, a blend of traditional scottish heritage mixed with some enthusiastic Greek dancing, and lots of fun to photograph.

Congratulations to Yuli and Callum!

Skye's Skies

This week I have been on holiday on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It's been a beautiful week, it feels almost like another world! I have more photographs to share from my week here but for now here is the view out of my window this morning. That is actually the Scottish shoreline across from Skye that we can clearly see from our cabin. .

Urban Landscape: Part 2

The first few photos here were actually taken in Alnwick rather than Newcastle, this building used to be an old cinema but now is left unused overgrowing with nettles.  Once I got to Newcastle I walked down by the Ouseburn, along the tow track beside the river. As well as textures and nature, which was my focus last week, I was focusing on windows and doors which always seem to be quite interesting in old dilapidated buildings, especially when they re boarded up or no longer in use.

Urban Landscape: The backstreets of Newcastle

I am currently doing a photography course at Newcastle College, it's been running since February and finishes on the 15th of June. The current project is 'Urban Landscape' and I have been interested in photographing derelict and decaying buildings as part of this. I am also looking at nature in contrast with the urban buildings; where plant life has started to take back an area that has been built up. On Monday I went on a walk along a backstreet in Newcastle and took some photographs of the buildings there. I really like the different textures that appear in decaying buildings, especially where there are traces of something else that used to be on top of the brickwork, or the remains of other buildings that have now been demolished creating a patchwork of old and new.
