After a busy couple of weeks with weddings and photoshoots I'm finally getting a chance to catch my breath before the next storm.
Apart from a couple of prospective wedding couples to be met, I can take the next couple of weeks to regroup, reedit and prepare for some exciting new work at the end of the Month.
On 25th March I will be returning to the Harbour Barber's for probably the biggest of the planned shoots there. We will be borrowing hats from the fabulously creative Jenivieve Berlin Millinery, some risque outfits from a boutique in Glasgow and creating a burlesque carnival within the confines of the shop. It promises to be challenging, if only keeping so many people out of the reflections in the mirrors and because we only start at 4:30 pm, so will be shooting into the night.
Last weekend saw me making the long trip to Melrose to delivery a print to Karen Reid Designs. Karen had been one of the designers at the Perfectly Petite shoot last November and this errant print had bounced between the Borders and a Parcelforce depot for several weeks, before returning to its origin at the lab. I'd picked it up myself in the end and had been showing it to everyone I could, before finally hand delivering it to Karen.
In the abstract I had been aware that Karen had been pleased with the resulting images from our shoot, some of my pictures even feature heavily on her current website, but it was still a surprise to walk up the stairs to her shop and be confronted by a gallery of my pictures on the staircase. It was quite a boost to the old ego, I can tell you.
The other motive for my shoot will become evident at a later date, as the week following the next barbershop shoot will see me descending on a very fine B&B in Galashiels for an all day shoot involving Karen's designs, vintage wedding dresses and gorgeous surroundings. I can't wait!
