Glenelg FC Naked Calendar 2017

Glenelg is one of the smallest villages in Scotland (basically last bit of mainland before you get to the Isle of Skye), it's as remote as it is beautiful and I had the pleasure of being involved in photographing a rather unusual project there - a nude calendar for the local football team. It took 3 days, 12 locations, 16 naked men as well as quite a bit of whiskey to complete but it was all worth it and for a good cause as all proceeds from the calendar sales will go to the Glenelg Football Team for their home and away kits, training equipment, travel, etc. The final product was beautifully designed by the award-winning Graphical House and is available for purchase from glenelgteam.com as well as various shops around Glasgow and in Glenelg itself. Below you can find a short promo video and a few frames from the calendar:

Ludovic Favier

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:

Tristan Cameron Harper

I've been meaning to do this post for ages but keeping this blog up to date is clearly not high on my agenda (despite the "UPDATE BLOG" scribbles on my notice board as well as notifications on my iPhone...)! Anyways.... Towards the end of last year, I had the pleasure of working with model/ice hockey player Tristan Harper. I rarely do TFP shoots so I'm quite careful about which projects I choose to get involved with under this banner. This one seemed like an interesting opportunity however as I didn't have photos of such bearded, tattooed and slightly rough around the edges guys in my portfolio. Tristan turned out to be an absolute gentleman and a total pleasure to work with. Results below:
