Eunice for Scottish Woman

I photographed model and broadcaster Eunice Olumide for the first time last year and we recently collaborated again when I was asked to photograph her for the cover of Scottish Woman Magazine. We shot it on a rather windy and chilly April afternoon on Portobello Beach in Edinburgh (although I really shouldn’t complain - I wasn’t the one running around barefoot in dresses!). Eunice put together a truly stellar team for this and you can check the results below:

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:

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

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). Eunice has a new book out called "How To Get Into Fashion” and you can view (and purchase) Nu Blvck’s jewellery collection here.
