I love working with people, I love capturing the story, watching people's responses to the events and experiences going on around them. For me, a fantastic image speaks volumes and can tell a great story better than a thousand words. My work with local community and youth projects has produced extensive records of their work and progress, enabling them to develop excellent visual archives of their projects and events. In the past few years I have worked on many visual/performance art projects including the Glasgow International Biennial; several week long parkour, music and dance residencies; week long teens workshops facilitated by the Royal Scottish Conservatoire, exploring kid's experiences and responses to the ideas of sport, competition, team work, local history and environment. I have also covered all three Dunoon Film Festival and several high profile local exhibitions including work by installation artist Julie Brook, artist and textile designer Robert Stewart and the 'Airdrie Boys', John Cunningham and Dan Ferguson including schools workshop elements, where local artists visited primary schools and worked on a variety of different topics and disciplines with the pupils. The same documentary or reportage style also works wonderfully with Weddings giving a unique, rich and candid style to images of your special day. Please click here for information about Wedding Packages and visit the Wedding Gallery. To discuss a forthcoming project, event or wedding in 2016 or beyond please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (+44) 7786 811121.
