Chester Hotel photographs for Ambiance

I was asked by Ambiance Interiors to photograph the work they completed on the extension of the Chester Hotel. Being a regular client of the hotel, I already knew how stunning it was and I was looking forward to this shoot.

I went at 7am on a December morning to get shots without daylight to get an evening feel which worked better for the bar to show of the lighting.

By mid morning, we had a nice winter sun which gave me the light I wanted for the Garden room.

Harper UK

In December I was asked by Harper UK to photograph a large Grillage that they had built. It was boked at very short notice, as the collection of it from their Colpy facility might have been happening the following day. The problem was that the weather was horrendous with very heavy rain. We decided to wait to see if the weather was going to improve. While waiting I took some shots of the workshop and the Harper UK team at work.

Welsh and Taylor

In December, I photographed the Welsh and Taylor team at the St. James Place offices on Queens Road. The images were for their website, social media, and press release in January once the company was officially launched.

Hogmanay at The Marcliffe

This year I intended taking a break over the festive period but had a few portraits booked by families that had extended family in Aberdeen for the holidays. On Monday 30th, I photographed a family at Crieff Hydro, and I had portraits booked for the 3rd January. On Hogmanay day, I got a phone call from Doreen at the Marcliffe Hotel for a short notice booking to photograph guests arriving for the Hogmanay Gala Ball.

Property photography at Hilton Road

After a recommendation from a previous client, I was contacted by Steve Singer to photograph his home on Hilton Road. He needed images to use to market it it for rental. It was a nice weather on the day he phoned so I got the exteriors done a few hours after the initial call.

Genesis Autumn Ball at the Marcliffe

I was commissioned to photograph the Genesis Autumn Ball at the Marcliffe on Saturday (9th November 2019). I used 2 camera and lighting setups – a radio controlled studio light and a camera for the posed shots of the guests arriving, and another camera with on-camera flash (and appropriate diffusers) for the informal shots during the cocktail reception and for the rest of the evening.

After the arrival shots, I took informal groups before dinner. Navigating and photographing 200 + people in a small area is never easy and you have just have to be a bit “pushy” to get these photographs. One of the Genesis team asked if their 16 year old son, Alex could work with me, and he was very helpful holding the coats etc. for the arrival shots.

Aberdeen Young Professionals Ball 2019

We are now very much in the season for events, company events, private parties, and family get togethers.

We are happy to work to your brief which could include posed couple and small groups on arrival, informal, and semi-posed shots during the pre-dinner cocktails, table photographs before dinner starts, speeches, presentations, entertainment, and hopefully people having fun.

There are many reasons why you would choose to have a professional photographer. The images can be made available to buy, or for free download, or they can be used for company PR, or just to have fun looking at the images to re-live your event. The AYP Ball at the Sandman, which is featured here, is a good example. My client was very happy with the images, and one of the guests has booked us for another ball at the Sandman.

Headshot photography for Tenaris

Last week, we photographed the Tenaris team at their offices in Marischal Square. Those that could not manage are arranging session at the studio, and our on-line diary makes it easy for the appointments to be arranged.

John Bell Pipeline

We often see requests for photography on social media and some of my clients, and BNI members are often kind enough to recommend me but with the number of photographers active on social media, it is only occasionally that we are successful getting the work. Recently Clear Focus, a local video company posted that they required a still photographer to work with them at John Bell Pipeline. I supplied samples and a quote and was commissioned.

Laings Showroom Re-Launch and VIP Event

We are delighted to be working with Laings again. I previously photographed the showroom and the first case study of several planned. I was booked to take some photographs of the VIP launch but prior to that, there was an urgent requirement for an exterior shot that I managed to take and deliver same day to meet their deadline.
