The Many Faces of Glasgow - An unofficial world record!

Well, it's taken me a day or so to recover, but what a day!

On Thursday 14th August 2014 at the St Enoch Centre I teamed up with Sense Scotland and 453 people of Glasgow to create a record!

We started setting up at 7 am at the St Enoch Centre and then kicked off the 12 hour challenge from 8 am.

The idea was to photograph as many different people as possible over 12 hours and we worked through the day to persuade the passing shoppers to come and take part. A few people had said they'd come along in advance and it was great to also meet these fabulous people, supporting our cause.

The PR Company at St Enoch had helped us rope in some coverage from STV Glasgow and we'd all maybe expected 30 seconds coverage on their Riverside Show, but they gave some great exposure to Sense Scotland, interviewing Erin from Sense live on the show, recording a package that included an interview with some of the service users and even allowing me a live interview at the end of the challenge! A big thanks to STV Rachael (her FB nom de plume) and Colin Stone who came down to see us at the event and add his face to the list!



The Sense Scotland staff were indefatigable and it was great to see such vibrancy and enthusiasm as they persuaded people in front of the camera and discussed their work with passers by.


I'm also pretty sure that a lot of the initial momentum and sitters were persuaded in front of the camera by the lure of Tunnock's, who had kindly sponsored us by providing some boxes of Teacakes, Snowballs and Caramal  Logs. Once they ran out, the sweetshop across the way, Henley's also donated some lollipops, which were very popular with our younger sitters.


Other sponsors for the event included Walker's Shortbread and Cigna and of course the great folk at St Enoch Centre, who played host to the event. We also persuaded a few of their staff to get involved in front of the camera and they were great sports.


I guess I found that for the most part, the Many Faces of Glasgow are a great bunch of people, the visitors, the workers, the shoppers, the occasional physiotherapist and I'm so glad that we could use this event to increase awareness of the great and amazing work that Sense Scotland does.

Our posts from the event and a big gallery of all the sitters can be found on the Facebook page. Some behind the scenes pictures were taken by Hamish Photography. Hamish helped me out throughout the day with fixing occasional technical issues and working on the uploads as we went along. Between him and the folk from Sense they managed to keep me going and motivated throughout the long 12 hours.

All done now unless the madness hits and I decide to beat this record next year!
