A busy week. Seven schools in five days. The second image was taken at one of my schools on Thursday whilst I was waiting to take year groups. It made a change to see such a lovely landscape view and natural light in my “office” for the afternoon. Far too often I’m stuck in a spare bog standard classroom. This image was taken on my work’s camera – Nikon D300s with a 35mm lens.
The first image was on I took today, a quick portrait of Jonny on the water, training. I used my OMD EM1 with 12-40mm lens. Neither image has been edited (apart from putting into black and white).
Selfie. Self Portrait. Whatever. You can’t see my wrinkles. Result.

Sometimes the best laid plans go pear shaped. Our family weekend in London wasn’t our greatest time away together. But you live and learn and come back stronger.

I wanted to show you a few of my favourite images from this week’s shoot in Edinburgh. Aghogho and I work well together. We met about a year ago and quickly fell into a pattern. She rocks up with her suitcase overflowing with outfits, I choose the locations. She changes in toilets, changing rooms and sometimes alleyways. I grab tea and wait patiently. We try to avoid lingering in shops so not to make purchases. We make it up as we go along. Along the way we’ve become friends. Natural beauty and natural lights.

Testing out lights and cables after a few months break from studio photography in preparation for going back to work. I used my EM-1 instead of my work Nikon as wanted to see how it performed in a studio setting. It over exposed by one stop, but now I know. Katie very kindly modelled for me. On her birthday as well. Afterwards I helped her make chocolate covered strawberries.
This week has been a contrast of productivity and laziness. I have spent far too much time checking in on my favourite blogs, scouring the internet virtually creating a wardrobe I will never be able to afford and baking. I have however been preparing for going back out to photograph in schools next week – testing lights and cables (post to follow) and had a great shoot in Edinburgh on Monday, where the light was magnificent (post and images to follow).
Here are a couple from my morning walk, far too much snow here for my liking. Give me heat, a bikini and the sea any day.
