Horse - Careful

Horse McDonald is a legend and a recent recipient of DIVA Magazine's Hall of Fame Award. Working with Horse is always a pleasure and we've done several different projects together over the years but the publicity images for her critically-acclaimed one-woman play "Careful" are definitely among my favourites. Shot on a cold winter day at Britannia Panopticon, the world's oldest surviving music hall, it was a very low key affair - just us, lovely Marta on makeup duties and a reflector. The play, written by Lynn Ferguson and directed by Maggie Kinloch, is a brutally honest, and at times painful story of identity struggle and self-acceptance and our goal for the promo images was to capture the intensity and intimacy of the performance. Peter Lindbergh, as well as old Hollywood photography from the 1940s, were our points of reference:

And here are some photos taken during the play's run in Glasgow's Tron Theatre:

Clinetix - Be You Campaign

Clinetix is an award-winning rejuvenation clinic with locations in Bothwell and Glasgow's West End. At the end of last year, I had the pleasure of shooting their "Be You" marketing campaign promoting bespoke treatments aimed at people of various ages and walks of life. The shoot took place at 29 Glasgow and Dakota Hotel as well as outdoors on Buchanan Street. Hair and make up by Carly Gray.
