Mallaig Scotland

Mallaig_01


I spent a few days working on my NxNW project, this is a long term project working in North by North West Scotland. South of Mallaig are a number of beautiful inlets and sandy beaches. the views are stunning and on a clear day to the North there are clear views to The Cullins on Skye and to the west Isles of Rum and Eigg. On the downside is the number of midges, I was truely ‘bitten alive’ by the little buggers but on balance properly worth it.

Jack Lowe-2_blog


I visited photographer Jack Lowe on location at the RNLI Chiswick Pier station last week. Jack has set himself the rather daunting task of visiting and  photographing every RNLI station in Great Britain. working with his beautiful 10″ x 12″ plate camera.  capturing each image on individual  glass plates, prepared in his mobile darkroom a decommissioned ambulance called Neena.

Jack is a extremely gift photographer and has chosen to work using this traditional Victorian process for this project. unlike a traditional film process which would typically produce a negative the glass plates are processed as a positive.

In the image above Jack and Chiswick Pier RNLI crew member watch the magic as the the image appears.

Isle of Harris, Scotland

Working on Huisinis Beach,  Isle of Harris.

I recently spent a few days shooting on the Isle of Harris. My visit coincided with the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo hit the UK, the 60-70 mph gusts of winds presented some major challenges, however I did find this beach which was slightly protected from the worst of the winds & the waves.

Later in the evening, with the skies clearing I moved to another beach looking north across the Sound of Taransay. Beautiful views but very exposed and several times I was left standing in knee deep sea water holding onto my tripod wondering how my insurance company would view this behavior.
