I met Thomas Petersen, the Danish visual artist better known as Grundvold, a few years ago and we talked about doing a photography project ever since. We finally managed to get together this autumn and headed to Pollok Park to take some pictures. Shot on analog and digital, we called it “Feral Ground” and intended for it to be a commentary of sorts on toxic masculinity, the masculine/feminine, strong/vulnerable in all of us. Results below:

I met Paul Thomas Bell, an award-winning blogger/writer/presenter, and an all-around renaissance man a couple of months ago for coffee after a few exchanges on Instagram. We chatted about how we got to do what we do for a living, about the world of social media, photography, music and everything else in between. We've also agreed that we should work together at some point and we finally managed to meet again last month and take some pictures. See the results below.

Ludovic Favier is a brilliant French model whom I had the pleasure of photographing last June in Spain. We wandered through the streets and parks of Barcelona in scorching heat looking for locations, chatting and taking photos - totally laid back and old school; just us two and the camera:
Sean Kennedy is an up and coming Scottish singer-songwriter with whom I did a shoot last summer (you can read about it here). The results of that first session ended up on the cover of his debut EP "Love Don't Live Here" (as seen here) and I was looking forward to working with him again. This time it was an indoors shoot and we used Contrast Studio in Glasgow's city centre. Since the studio we used had plenty of natural light and it was a beautiful, late spring evening (something you don't get in Glasgow that often) we decided to split the shoot into 2 sections - one for shots with available light only and another using studio lighting. Huge thanks to Laurabelle, my light assistant supreme.
