BMW | Mock Commercial

I have been having fun with some car photos recently! I just had an urge to try and create a dramatic product photo that could also be used as poster artwork. So I brought the car out to Crinan Ferry, Argyll. 
With my studio lights and a flash gun I aimed to create some nice lines, flowing with the car, but at the same time retaining shadow to add a bit of atmosphere and depth.  Thank you to Scott McPherson for lending me his beautiful BMW . I was incredibly sad when I had to give it back and return to my wee Ford Focus haha.  

Here is the first photo, aiming to just be sleek and with plenty of shadows; 

I then retook the photo adding the 5 extra lights to give it a bit more punch!

Wedding Seminar

Spent the day yesterday at a brilliant seminar on wedding and boudoir photography.  I was blown away by the quality of the albums. They are hand made with real leather, the same leather that Aston Martin use for their cars... Pointless fact of the day! 
The amount of good advice we were given was astonishing and I came away feeling much more prepared.

I will be doing a one off £20 portrait day where you will receive a 10x8 print out of a selection of photographs. If you would like to register an interest just give me an email to let me know and you will receive an email before the deal goes public to help you get the best slot on the day possible.

Rennie | Family Photos

It was a dreich and horrible morning but that didn't dampen these guys spirits. They were running around mad and having a great time. We chose to do these photographs at Carnasserie  Castle, Kilmartin, Argyll as it was a place that the kids enjoyed spending time. I love doing this kind of shoot and look forward to my next clients coming to see me!

Mackenzie | Kid Portraits

It was a lovely and cloudy morning at Kilmory Castle, Argyll.  The kids were running around mad and having a great time.  The walk and the gardens - as always - provided the perfect setting to capture both candid and fun poser photos. I love doing this kind of shoot and look forward to my next clients coming to see me!

David and Hazel | Wedding

David and Hazel chose the lovely Argyll Hotel in the town of Inveraray, Argyll for their wedding venue. I just loved photographing this couple. They were fun as well as a good laugh. 

I had a brilliant time shooting this wedding and despite the horrible weather the rain stopped just long enough for us to get some cracking portraits in front of the loch. I have delivered the couple a beautiful leather album and look forward to the next time we meet.
I wish you all the best guys!

Gregg and Louise | Wedding

Louise, Greg and their two boys live in the same village as I, so shooting their wedding was a lot of fun as it was full of friendly faces. The couple were very relaxed which made it easy for me to get some brilliant shots! 

The wedding was held in the magnificent "Eilean Donan Castle" which is one of the best wedding venues I have been to and look forward to going back again!  

I did some portraits of their boys a short while afterwards.
I wish you all the best guys!

Wedding Magazine | Feature

I was very happy when I came across one of my photos in the "Best Scottish Wedding" Magazine. Must mean I am heading in the right direction!

Hayleigh & Kevin | Engagement

For Hayleigh & Kevin's engagement session we headed to Ardrishaig, Argyll to take some shots along the Crinan canal and down on the beach.  We were very fortunate as we there was a beautiful morning sun.  I had a great time photographing these guys and having gone to school with Hayleigh, it was nice to see how our lives had changed after going away to study, I can’t wait for the big day!

Congratulations guys! I wish you all the best.

"Jordan was very good at communicating and arranging our engagement photography shoot through email and phone conversations. On the day he was brilliant at seeking out spaces for some staged shots and then quietly followed us on our journey and got some wonderful natural shots. All in all he is a brilliant photographer with a bright future ahead of him and we will be sure to use him again for future shoots!" - Hayleigh
