The Great Outdoors

I was recently asked to photograph a young, up and coming Scottish singer-songwriter Sean Kennedy. He's just about to release his first EP and we went to Mugdock Park to shoot the cover for it. Outdoors shoots in Scotland can be pretty tricky as the term "summer" should only be used very loosely here - even in July/August you can never, ever guarantee good weather. We had a back up plan in case it was pouring down on the day of the shoot but, luckily, after a gloomy morning we ended up having a beautiful, almost Indian summer-like afternoon.

The lovely Laurabelle was there to help with light and everything went pretty smoothly. Yes, we got shouted at by some territory-precious archers and spent a lot of the time jumping over cow dungs (I ended up on my knees in one - the sacrifice for art theme continues!) but overall we had a fun, productive afternoon which resulted in some cool images:
