Some pals of mine, George, Will and Huw are in the early days of selling their innovative sports drink, Active Root. It’s a massive step up for them from a handful of bottles produced from Will’s kitchen, to a web store, a national publicity campaign and shopfront displays. I’ve done a few product photo shoots for them for their website (also used in GQ magazine!), but last weekend was definitely the most fun shoot so far.
Photographers say the strangest things: “I’ll never shoot a wedding” being one of mine, repeated constantly like a chant to ward away the evil wedding spirits. But when my good friends Huw and Cath asked me to be their wedding photographer, I couldn’t say no!
Seems like photographing swing dance events in, or near, Edinburgh is becoming a bit of thing for me! I have Ellen, Rob and Anne at the Edinburgh University Swing Dance Society to thank for that. I’ve got to say, I always thoroughly enjoy photographing these events.
