This is my second attempt at a blog so wanted to share with you a little bit about me and what I got up too during the Easter Holidays back home in Ayrshire , Scotland.
Well I am back to my normal boring routine in that I am back travelling to and from work each day to earn money. I can’t really complain as this helps pay towards my photography as I get virtually nothing for any work With photography . My normal everyday job is in England and I live in the Scottish border town of Kelso and commute to work to the English border town of Berwick upon Tweed.
I don’t mind the everyday trawl and but Its being on my own most of the time and being away that distance from family and my friends in Ayrshire and the West Coast of Scotland This is where you will find me most of my free time and I tend to do most of my Photography which involves music, portraiture and event photography .
My place where I can be creative it’s my little get away .
I enjoyed a break from my normal stressful job and spending time with my family and this only makes it even harder to leave my small home town of Maybole each time. It’s been over 13 years since leaving to start my career in a professional profession (not photography) which is in Law . One of the hurdles in that journey was discovering I had dyslexia and not knowing I had was a struggle to prove myself to others but I think I am now comfortable and confident that I have overcome this.
During my time off I didn’t get as much photo work as I liked to do, one that I enjoyed was a Music Networking Event organised in Irvine called Music Harbour Speaks at the Harbour Arts Centre Irvine .
It was surreal being back at the HAC as I relate to this centre bieng the first actual gig to photograph and where I first met musicians and artists , photographers which were Taylor Buntain , Scott Nicol , Colin Hunter and Tosh also known as Trajic o Hara and Photogrpher and Radio presenter Elaine Fisher .
The Music Harbour Speaks event was a good way of meeting new people and to be able to network and offer my skills as a photographer.
It was a fantastic event and again I met some new people to hopefully will generate new creative work.
Nicola Cassells and Aimee Trainor who organised the event with Jamie Kiera from Jamie and Shoony
