Rory Hutton & The Royal Opera House

Last time I wrote about working with designer/illustrator Rory Hutton I mentioned we had some projects in the pipeline. One of them was a video highlighting designs for Rory’s collaboration with The Royal Opera House (you can find more information about this collection here). We wanted to create a short behind the scenes film depicting a design’s journey, from research and conception to execution and sale. We shot the video in Rory’s studio in South Block and you can check it out below:

And here are some portrait shots of Rory taken last summer in his apartment:

Behind the scenes of the video:

Throwback: Patricia Panther

Patricia Panther is a singer, songwriter, producer, actress and an all around badass. We've worked together on several occasions but this throwback post is about our first collaboration back in April 2013 where we spent a beautiful (albeit cold) afternoon and evening shooting in the ruins of St. Peter’s Seminary in Cardross (I’ve written before about my trips there). Huge thanks to Ryan Vance for assistance.

Eunice Olumide is a supermodel, broadcaster, curator and an MBE recipient (for her contribution to Arts, Broadcasting and Charity work). I had the pleasure of photographing her for a couple of campaigns by Nu Blvck earlier this year and I’m finally able to share some of these images (see below).

Nicole Caldwell

You may have seen Nicole Caldwell belting out "Purple Rain" on the X-Factor recently. I've been a fan of her voice ever since I've heard her perform with Soul Nation Choir a few years ago. Being able to finally work with Nicole on her very first photoshoot as a solo artist was a great opportunity. And a lot of fun! The brief was "bohemian/hippie/natural" so off we went last month to Mugdock Country Park (one of my favourite places to shoot) with Caroline Stewart on makeup duties and spent an evening walking about, laughing and talking nonsense. Oh yes, and we took some photos too. Enjoy!

PS. Big thanks to David for all the help!
