Noise - Love Speaks Opera

Noise is a Scottish opera company whose aim is to broaden the audience for contemporary opera in Scotland. I’ve worked with them previously on their “Hirda” project, an opera written in Shetlandic dialect, and was delighted to be back photographing and filming their most recent production, “Love Speaks”. “Love Speaks” is a short opera written by Kevan O’Reilly and Jenny Knotts about love and relationships, celebrating the availability of prEP on NHS Scotland. The short piece was directed by James Robert Carson and featured stellar performances from Marie Claire Breen, Douglas Nairne, Kenny Reid and Shuna Scott Sendall. You can see the short film I made for this below as well some images from live performances and rehearsals.

The Scullery Bar & Kitchen

The Scullery is one of those places which despite having been open for only a few months already feels like a staple of Finnieston life. Maybe it's just because I visit it so frequently - it's practically on my door step, I'm in love with the decor and it doesn't hurt that their food is really good. I was first asked to photograph their interiors early summer last year when it was all still work in progress. I've since been back to capture the restaurant in its full, finished glory. Have a look at some of the before and after shots below and make sure to stop by if you happen to be in Finnieston area.
