Starbucks Terminal 5

A couple of weekends ago a headed down to London to photograph the new Starbucks store at Terminal 5C. The images were to be used for media purposes to accompany interviews with Starbucks chairman and CEO Howard Shultz on a recent visit to the UK.

It was a rather strange experience being in the new terminal wing before it was open to travellers. Certainly made the job easier. As did having a fantastic looking store to photograph.

The first ever Festival of Museums takes place across Scotland this weekend. 80 events will take place across 70 museums to showcase what Scotland's museums and galleries have on offer. Many of the events are free.

I was commissioned by Festivals of Museums to produce press images to highlight events happening in Edinburgh. Blue skies and fantastic costumes helped ensure that coverage was achieved in amongst others, The Scotsman, Metro and Edinburgh Evening News.

You're The One That I Want

‘You’re the one that I want’! The iconic Pink Ladies from the hit musical Grease, running at the Edinburgh Playhouse (6-21 May) in the capital, know what (numbers) they want as they help celebrate tomorrow’s (Tuesday 10 May) launch of the new EuroMillions draw.

EuroMillions is launching a new Tuesday draw on May 10, with a stunning £85 million jackpot. The special draw marks EuroMillions moving to twice a week, as well as other changes to the game which are designed to create bigger jackpots and even more winners.

The ladies from Grease were a joy to work with - so professional and looked great in their specially made gold jackets.

David Calder - Personal Fitness

I was recently commissioned by David Calder who runs his own personal fitness and wellness studio in the West End of Edinburgh to produce some images for his website.

The style of the photography was a high end, glossy magazine, polished look to reflect the stylish, professional and friendly reputation the studio has built up.
