After a very busy week I have a day to gather my thoughts before a corporate event headshot photoshoot in Edinburgh tomorrow. As a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland, the last week or two have been very interesting and varied. Whilst it is good to specialise in one particular area, to help become in expert in your field, variety keeps us fresh and alive and is very good for the creative juices. Different types of photography also fit well together. For instance an architecture photographer can use his/her skills to create good wedding images with building backdrops, similarly, a sports photographer will be able to catch the crucial moments at an event like a wedding. This week, I have photographed motor sport, I will be doing a corporate photoshoot in Edinburgh, a horse photoshoot in East Lothian and bungee jumpers in Glasgow at the weekend. However, I had a very interesting and rewarding photo job last week, when I photographed someone proposing to his girlfriend at the top of the Scott Monument in Edinburgh. Once I had overcome my fear of heights it went well and the couple were great. A photo is attached to this blog. Anyway, better get out and take some infrared photos for my infrared photography in Scotland project.
Until next time.
