I’m working at the Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference all this week. Pretty much one of the best event jobs I’ve done. Did the same last time they were in Glasgow and their evening events are pretty smashing. The first element of last nights event was a cruise up the Clyde on The Clipper.

Pretty typically stunning *cough cough* Glasgow evening for it as well.

Every couple of months or so I work on a project called Hit the Road which takes a few young musicians out for a short experience of being on tour, alongside people who do this for a living, with tour managers, techs, photographers, videographers etc etc.

The most recent one was the furthest afield we’ve been, heading to Stornoway for the last of the 3 nights via Edinburgh then Inverness.

I was photographing the incredible Katherine Bryan recording with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra recently. I don’t know the first thing about the flute, but hearing her play was breathtaking.

It felt like a real privilege to be in the room.

One those days you become aware of how amazing working at this can be.

Last weekend was the first incarnation of a new festival called Electric Fields which was hosted in the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle. The place is awesome, I’ve never been before, or even heard of it, but the grounds are huge and the castle is pretty spectacular.

Some ace sets by equally ace bands from Honeyblood to Neon Gold. Here a few photos of neither of those bands :-)

#Pridesclub

This is Prides, but from a totally different gig as I was all busy doing the video thing

A couple of weeks ago I was out with the wonderful boys in Prides for their #pridesclub shows. Essentially they wanted to fill a week with shows that were a bit more ‘party’ than typical gig. So, naturally, they went to strangers’ houses, with more gear than you can think about. I felt a little guilty about filming the crew carry it up flights of stairs, not guilty enough to help though!!!

Read anything about blogging for work and it’ll tell you not to venture into the murky world of politics for fear of alienating your potential customers. This post totally ignores that advice, and isn’t really anything to do with photography. Hope you’ll excuse me, and appreciate a desire to speak about something that’s become pretty important to me.

I have recently reached the decision that…
