This particularly great looking bunch of musicians spent some time with me on Sunday doing some photos for publicity. I had a great day with them and enjoyed Edinburgh on a beautiful bright February day. I loved photographing them and loved their willingness top trust me as I dragged them onto the monument at Calton…

    Looks great and I’m sure it was not cold at all way up there with just a shirt or dress on. The graffiti should go, get marigolds and cif and get back up there.

  • Good work, Matthew. Great colors and angles. Of the top group shots, I personally prefer the 2nd one down if you could copy James’ forward looking glance from #3 into #2. I like the “looking into the camera” approach than the ‘off to the distance’ one, except, in the 2nd B&W group shot where I think it works well. I also like the really ‘tight in’ head shot of James. Very cool! Haven’t shot a band or group like this yet, but keep offering to do so for band our son-on-law is in. Tough job.

    What a great picture of John spidering his way out of a web!! Like it very much and he is a handsome divil really, isn’t he!!

This one was from the slopes of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh on the 31st December 2009. It was like an ice rink and frankly the path up Arthur’s Seat really needed crampons. (no really!). I set up my tripod and indulged in a 30 second exposure of our ever-so-odd parliament. The car light trails are…

    I really like the star like lights…Lovely photo Matthew!! Yes, you have reminded me of why I love living in Edinburgh. I have a view of the same park, but from a different angle and onto Arthurs seat…its almost like being back in Argyll…but not quite!!
