Photography Blog by Duncan Holmes

What has been and what is to become

Back to blogging again after a short break. In the meantime there have been a few weddings, a shoot, a failed fashion show and I’m 5 days into my first ever exhibition.
Louise and Andrew were married at the registry office in Largs, followed by a cosy wee reception at the Lounge restaurant. A nice family affair and a very emotional groom, it’s the first time I’ve seen a groom propped up by the best man due to nerves! Louise was also an interesting bride, racing to her appointed position and leaving her dad trailing 4 feet behind in her wake. The Lounge was a revelation with a boutique styled function room and giant Buddha heads on display.
 
I went along to see Nightwalk’s A/W show at the Arches,following a brief trip to Mono to see Lorna Shields and drop off some leaflets. I was surprised at the number of folk outside the venue, only to discover that the power was off. An hour or so outside in the cold (the sensible folkd isappeared to a pub, but I was meeting my wife) and they finally called the show as dead in the water. Models, MUA’s and designers were escorted by torchlight to pick up their belongings and that was that. This shot is of a few of the models, before they dispersed.
 
 
Then last week’s wedding was with Siobhan and Sean, again at Largs. This was my first trip into St Columba’s Church, with one of their relatives officiating. It was a cold day with hints of drizzle, but the weather was kind to us for the most part, and they got their wish of bouncing on the 4 poster bed! It must be something about cold days and the Brisbane Hotel thatbrings out the mischeivious edge in wedding couples.
 
 
The shoot was a trip to Edinburgh’s old West in Morningside in the company of Psychomoda. Models, Anna and Jen, and makeup from Caroline Stewart were also along. I’ve worked with Alison from Psychomoda a lot, so it was great to catch up with her. I’d also worked with Anna over the summer, so got a chance to see her strut her stuff outside a studio. Jen was new to modelling, but soon adapted to the lunacy that is a shoot. I’d also had the opportunity to work with Caroline once before on a private shoot, it is a small world and it’s always fun to see how easy it is to keep bumping in to folk. Caroline was quick at rustling up the looks for the two models and tweaking them as the day progressed through 3 sets of clothes from Psychomoda’s latest collections. These can also be seen on the catwalk at Edinburgh’s Online Fashion Week which is somewhere out on the internet somewhere. Alison found this amazing location for us to play with, and a pub round the corner for makeup...very civilised.
 
And finally my exhibition. It launched with some trepidation and minor disasters on Friday 19, with the first full day on Saturday. It will run during the day (10 to 5) for the rest of the week up toFriday 26th. Here’s some pics from Friday setting up, the launch night and Saturday, when I was visited by a couple of models featured in the prints in the show. 
 
After a few days of gallery sitting, it finally sank in that I have this space all week and a nice back gallery that could work as a small studio space for headshots. Needless to say the call is out there for anyone that wants to come and play and interrupt my vigil at the gallery. 1 shoot already arranged.
 
3 of the largest prints fell off the wall and got slightly bent, but I have managed to sell five others so far! I’d not taken into account the passing traffic when experimenting with my wall fixings, the vibration shook a couple of things loose before the sticky had a chance to set properly.All should be well from here on though, I came into the gallery this morning and everything was where it should have been! There’s been an interesting mix of folk through the doors, some known, some new and I’m looking forward to seeing who walks through the door during the days to come.
So a holiday which involves commuting to Glasgow every day and spending 7 hours gallery sitting. It seems only logical to spend the weekend after doing back to back shoots on Saturday and Sunday as I bring my spy vs spy/androids in love idea to life, with the help of Aileen, Jay, Lee-Ann and Neal, plus extras, designers and assistant. A welcome return to the Radisson Blu hotel and it’s interesting and varied locatons.
 
And this blog? Typed on the train and ready for upload when I get home from Glasgow. Nice sunset tonight, golden for a change.
