New Horizons for Professional Infrared and Landscape Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/9/new-horizons-for-professional-infrared-and-landscape-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

Now that I have moved I have been investigating the area for photographic potential. Having moved to Kirkintilloch we have discovered some great walks and opportunities for photography throughout East Dunbartonshire.  The Campsie Fells is also an area new to me and it looks like it has a lot of potential for infrared photography, particularly at this time of the year with the trees and foliage still around.  There is a rich countryside with a variety of potential subjects suitable for infrared and landscape photography in Scotland.  In addition, I am still in the perfect position for corporate and event photography in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Central Scotland.  The conference photography commissions are a still bit quiet at the moment, due to covid, however, the PR and sport is starting to kick off now.  I will also be continuing my urban photography project in Glasgow and the Clyde in particular.  So plenty going on.  I also intend to invest in some more lenses and possibly a new Canon body and possibly some infrared equipment.

So, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Urban Photography from Glasgow https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/urban-photography-from-glasgow Hi Everyone 

Sorry it’s been a while since my last blog post.  I recently moved to Kirkintilloch and it’s been a bit chaotic recently.  However, things are starting up a bit more now and I hope to be doing some professional corporate event photography throughout Scotland in Edinburgh and Glasgow.  For my infrared work, I will now be focussing more on urban photography, mostly in Glasgow, although I hope to visit Loch Lomond more and of course, living in Kirkintilloch should provide me with some opportunities to photograph canals and the Kelpies, which is only 20 minutes away.

So until next time.  All the best.

Kind Regards

Colin

Professional Photographers in Scotland and the Importance of Location https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/professional-photographers-in-scotland-and-the-importance-of-location Hi Everyone

As some of you may know, I will be leaving the area of Dunbar, East Lothian and moving to Kirkintilloch near Glasgow.  After 15 years of living by the sea next to this wonderful coastline, in a few weeks time I will be in a totally different place.  I will be very sad to leave Dunbar, as a professional fine art and landscape photographer, Scotland, this is obviously a great location for photography in Scotland and the ability to nip out and photograph a sunset or a storm just at my doorstep, will be missed.  However, as photographer, we should always be looking at exploring new horizons and you can only keep photographing the same subject over and over again, so many times.  I will be in the ideal place to explore Loch Lomond and the Highlands, in addition to being close to Glasgow for some urban photography and also to expand on my infrared photography in Scotland project.  The area is also ideal for conference and corporate event photography in Central Scotland, with quick access to both Edinburgh and Glasgow, as opposed to Dunbar which is not so central. Kirkintilloch is also famous for its canals and I will be close to the Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel, so onwards and upwards.  

To celebrate the move, here is a photo taken in Glasgow, probably the best city in Scotland for urban photography.

Until next time.

Ideas for Projects During the Pandemic for Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/ideas-for-projects-during-the-pandemic-for-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

One of the things I have found about this strange time as a professional corporate and event photographer based in Scotland is that I had to find other things to photograph, particularly since I am a specialist conference photographer and there hasn't been a conference for over a year now.  So what did I do, for one, I couldn't travel to the same extent, so I concentrated on my local area and more importantly I adapted my projects to may daily routines.  As you will know I have an ongoing project relating to infrared photography and I have managed to use this genre in unusual ways, so if I am going to take my boy to a skateboard park, I will photograph him in infrared.  Likewise any insect shots and spring photos of chick hatchings in Dunbar have been taken in infrared, sometimes the results are fairly striking, so it is worth it in the end.  Often I am looking to create something surreal in a typical infrared way, however sometimes it will be difficult to tell that the shot was taken in infrared and all you will be left with is a high contrast black and white photo with excellent dynamic range.

So onwards and upwards.  Now that things are moving a bit, I will be photographing conferences in Scotland soon.  However, I will continue with my local infrared project.

Until next time.

All the best

The Art of Digital Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/5/the-art-of-digital-infrared-photography Hi Everyone

As most of my professional photography has been concerned with infrared photography recently due to the pandemic affecting corporate and event photography commissions around Scotland, so I thought this would be a good time to reflect on how infrared photography has changed in recent years.  of course the biggest change has been the move away from infrared film to digital cameras and an even larger influence, has been the ability to convert digital cameras to shoot entirely in infrared, without the need for a tripod, by removing the internal protective infrared light filter from the cameras and replacing it with either a specific infrared filter or leaving you with a full spectrum camera (able to shoot a variety of infrared images with filters).  The main thing has been the ability to stroll around without a tripod and experiment. In the past, infrared film was expensive and often a bit of a hit or miss depending on the developing and exposure of the image, now photographers can try out all sorts of things.  I have used infrared for sports photography, weddings, architecture and many other corporate photography commissions around Scotland, this could never have happened in the past.  Photoshop and other software such as DXO filters have also enhanced all the special effects created by infrared and has given the photographers a range of choices for the final image to create eye catching images for fine art purposes, or just to have a black and white photo with brilliant dynamic range.  My biggest sales over the last 5 years for landscape and fine art have been in infrared.

It is also a hugely enjoyable genre and offers all sorts of creative possibilities. So its not all about white trees and forests.  This doesn't even touch on the use of infrared imagery for medical and forensic purposes.

So, I will leave you with a recent infrared photograph taken in East Lothian, Scotland.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Photographers and Moving Out of the Comfort Zone https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/5/photographers-and-moving-out-of-the-comfort-zone Hi Everyone

As I prepare for a possible move away from East Lothian to East Dunbartonshire, I can reflect on the 15 years I have spent in East Lothian and what a brilliant place it is for professional photographers to live and work.  Whilst most of my paid photography commissions involve corporate PR and conference photography around Scotland, I also do landscape and infrared fine art photography in East Lothian and Scotland and this location has been ideal.  However, whilst I will miss the area and the convenient closeness to the coastal areas, it will be good for me to relocate and move out of my comfort zone.  You tend to repeat yourself if located in the one place, especially recently without the ability to travel.  Moving nearer to Glasgow will provide me with the opportunity to update my urban photography images and there is no better city than Glasgow.  I will also be more central and closer to the Highlands and Islands and Stirling, not to mention the Campsie Fells and Loch Lomond and I will still be within shouting distance of Edinburgh.  All in all, more central for photographic commissions in Scotland.

So onwards and upwards.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Professional Photography Restarts in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/professional-photography-restarts-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As we are starting to come of lockdown and some activities re-start, this means that the event and corporate photography commissions in Scotland will be re-starting soon, maybe not so many conferences just yet, but the outdoor events and indoor commissions throughout Edinburgh and Scotland.  So its time to dust off my gear and get going again, I cant wait. I like to think that I have tried to utilise this time by updated my training and equipment, in addition to increasing my infrared photography portfolio and I also had a few photography commissions, particularly in the summer months and even up to November, but it will be a bit strange at first.  I have also had a couple of photography jobs which involved wearing masks, although as an event photographer, it pains me that I cant photograph the full face of the participants, however, you get used to it and it wont last forever.

 

So let’s get back in there and do what we love to do.

Kind Regards

Colin Wright

Skateboarding in infrared in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/skateboarding-in-infrared-in-scotland Hi Everyone

Just before my corporate and event photography commissions are due to start in Scotland, I am expanding my fine art infrared photography portfolio.  Recently I have been photographing my son Lukas, who is a keen skateboarder.  I decided to go for some dramatic infrared photos of him skateboarding and also portrait photos, although none of the photos are posed, I have just photographed him while he is unaware of me in the background.  I think black and white works best but the next aim will be to get some dramatic colour infrared photos with foliage in the background, or other landscape or street photography props that lend themselves to infrared photography.  Once again, the clouds are crucial to add a sense of drama.  I also used flash in some of the images to add contrast and bite to the images.  It also gives me the opportunity to try out stuff myself and act like the overgrown kid that I am.  Hope you like them, more on the way soon.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

The Importance of Clouds in Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/the-importance-of-clouds-in-infrared-photography Hi All

As a professional corporate and event photographer working near Edinburgh, who also spends a lot of time photographing infrared around Scotland, this means I spend a good amount of time outdoors.  For infrared photogrpahy, you may have heard me go on about the importance of sunlight and foliage in the composition, in addtion to the quality of light.  However one of the most important factors for successful infared photography is the clouds in the sky.  If the sky is blue without any clouds I probably wont even take the shot.  this also goes for non-infrared landscape photography.  Whilst most locations are roughly the same every time, it's the clouds that can change everything, the shapes, or the intensity, whether they appear blurry, if photogrpahed at a slow shutter speed during a windy day, or puffy and sharp with repeating patterns, they are going to enhance your photo, whether of not it is in coluor or black and white.  So the next time you go out on a infrared photoshoot, or landscape for that matter, I want you to look up into the sky and check out the clouds.

Good luck.

Kind Regards

Colin

Cameras, with the biggest change since the digital age https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/cameras-with-the-biggest-change-since-the-digital-age Hi All

As we are still in lockdown and event and corporate photography in Scotland is still a while away, I thought I would do a short article reflecting on how the cameras we work with have made a pretty major change recently to the profession.  Some would say that no change can be as big as the film to digital transition and this is true but now there is a major change coming into play and that relates to the size of cameras.  This change has probably been coming largely due to the explosion of mobile phone photography, with smaller lenses providing the final image. However, the boom in mirrorless cameras has finally come.  At first it was Fuji, Panasonic and Sony leading the way, now the big guns have embraced the market, with Canon now promoting the EOS R series as their main camera choice for professionals and amateurs alike.  The convenient small size, coupled with the familiar touch screen operation will appeal to many.  The new range of lenses are also helping to promote the product.  I would say the only area where these cameras aren't yet dominating, is in professional sport in low light, which is still largely dominated by big camera bodies and long telephoto lenses.  As a conference photographer I love mirrorless cameras, especially the touch screen facility and the ability to reduce my visibility at events, in addition to less weight.  However, I still prefer my larger camera bodies for most sport, due to the auto- focusing and low light capabilities - things are changing though and I expect this market to become part of the mirrorless revolution.  I just hope they do not get too small, as I like to be able to grip my camera, but otherwise, roll on the changes, I am getting to the age where I don't want to be lugging around a lots of equipment all the time.

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Harbour photography East Lothian, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/harbour-photography-east-lothian-scotland Hi All

I thought I would spend a a bit of time on one of my recent fine art infrared photography projects, which is photographing harbours in East Lothian.  As a professional corporate, conference and event photographer working in Edinburgh, Glasgow and throughout Scotland, due to the covid restrictions, I have spent a lot of time on my personal projects, particularly infrared photography and due to travel limitations, I have been photographing local subjects, like the two harbours in Dunbar.  So I thought I would do a little blog on how to photograph harbours.  Dunbar has 2 harbours, one of them, Cromwell Harbour is the old one and there is a larger new harbour which leads out to the open sea.  I won't go into the aspects of harbour life, but I will concentrate on studying infrared photography from a harbour point of view.  As with all infrared photography we are looking for sunlight where possible, although in this case , as long as you have some cloud detail, it can be possible to get some good photos.  There are so many things to photograph in harbours, I like old fishing boats, but modern yachts are of interest also.  Black and white or colour can be considered and the weather could dictate which is best, in addition to the colour of the boats etc.  I also think you should always be looking at what you want to achieve down the line after editing, as infrared photography is a bit like in the old film days and the image you see on the screen is a long way from the final version after editing.  Close ups can also be considered.look for creels, ropes, old bits of boats and engines in the foreground, in addition to fishermen working on the boats.  I also look for any grass areas or trees close by, which will be prominent in infrared.  As always look at the angle you are shooting with, some low ground level shots can be very dramatic.  

With the lockdown, I have had the opportunity to do a very in-depth study of harbour photography, so much that I hope to turn it into an Infrared Photography exhibition in the future and also to add some of the images to my infrared photography in Scotland book, with a separate chapter on the subject of harbour photography.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Event Photography in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/event-photography-in-edinburgh-glasgow-and-scotland Hi Everyone 

As we all prepare to come out of lockdown this time has also given all professional photographers in Edinburgh, Glasgow and around Scotland, the opportunity to think about their future strategy and to reflect on what is important to them as a person and to their business.  I have had time to reflect on the areas of photography important to me and I hope to continue with my conference photography and event photography commissions with a renewed vigour.  I am now a fully converted Mac user and the lockdown has provided me with the time to re-invest in IT and improve my editing skills.  I also will be finishing my book on infrared photography in Scotland and doing more infrared photography with the possibility of converting another camera to shoot infrared.  

So let’s look onwards and upwards in 2021.

Until next time.

Mac or Windows - Photographers in Scotland and their Preferred Operating System https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/2/mac-or-windows---photographers-in-scotland-and-their-preferred-operating-system Hi All

Some time ago, I posted a blog on my other website on the subject of Mac or Windows operating systems.  As I have now changed almost entirely to Apple systems, I now have more experience in using the MacBook and I thought as we are still in lockdown and it may be a month or two until my professional corporate and event photography commissions restart in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, that this would be a good time to re-visit the subject.

So here is my opinion for what it is worth and it is only my preference from my personal experience.  I am sure other photographers will go the opposite way.

For Apple Mac:

1. Although it shouldn't make a difference, they just look cooler and are more enjoyable to work with.  Whilst this should not impact on business decisions, it does to an extent due to the professional image it creates.

2. Macs work better with Photoshop and the updates are designed to work well with Apple systems.

3. The products last longer in my opinion.  Although more expensive, Mac systems can be an investment.  I find my PCs start to slow down after a few years.

4. They sync well with other Apple devices.  Although pc and android systems also offer sync between devices it is more clumsy and you are pairing different manufactured devices with each other, which is often problematic.

5. I like most of the Apple updates and they don't take ages to update.  I also feel Windows updates often made the system more difficult to work with, rather than improve things.

6. I prefer Apple customer service.

For Windows:

1. Easier for working with documents due to Microsoft office compatibility.

2. I find it easier working with Music on Windows systems, they don't make it difficult to download or save Flac files to the devices. One of the things I don't like about Apple, is it forces you into their system, so you spend money on Apple products.  I prefer to be given the choice.

3. Most Windows systems still offer the option to burn CDs and DVDs.  I know this is outdated technology but some of my clients still want the service and it means I have to purchase an additional disk burner.  This wasn't even available on my Mac book when I purchased it 5 years ago when most of my clients still preferred disks.

4. There are some things I prefer about Windows, such as keyboard shortcuts and right click options, but this is mostly just because I am used to the Windows system.  Eventually I will learn the Apple shortcuts.

So that's it, overall I prefer Mac systems, as I think the good points outweigh the bad.  I could have added in the Windows section that the products are cheaper but you get what you pay for and in the long run I now prefer Apple.  Keep in mind I was a Windows user for 20 years, so this decision was not taken lightly.

Anyway, hopefully some event photography commissions soon, in the meantime, its more fine art and infrared photography during lockdown.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Fine Art Photography, the Kelpies Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/1/infrared-fine-art-photography-the-kelpies-scotland Hi Everyone

One of my favourite locations is the Kelpies installation in Falkirk, Scotland.  As a professional fine art infrared photographer, working in Edinburgh, East Lothian and throughout Scotland, I have had to content myself with photographing more local locations during the pandemic.  In fact at this moment in time we are in lockdown and I can't go any further than Dunbar or surrounding area around East Lothian.  However, this challenging time has also enabled me to focus on specific locations and to try to perfect my photography locally, in addition to experimenting with new techniques.  I have also been able to concentrate more on my fine art landscape and infrared photography due to the reduced number of professional event and corporate commissions in Edinburgh and around Scotland, due to the pandemic.   

The Kelpies has everything, it has drama, set in an amazing landscape.  It also has everything for the infrared photographer, including metal surfaces, trees water boats, large artistic installations and combine that with the somewhat dramatic Scottish weather, then you have the perfect location for infrared photography and a great day out.  I have experimented with colour, black and white and also I have often used HDR combined with infrared to enhance the images, so I hope I have succeeded in achieving something different.

Anyway, enjoy the photographs and chin up, this can't go on forever.

Kind Regards

Colin

Utilising Down Time and Re-visiting Earlier Fine Art Photography, Glasgow, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/1/utilising-down-time-and-re-visiting-earlier-fine-art-photography-glasgow-scotland Hi Everyone

A quick blog today, as we are all limited at the moment, with very little corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh, Glasgow and around Scotland, this is a good time to re-visit some earlier photos, to give them a fresh edit and a new perspective.  I photograph bungee photography events in Glasgow and I often have the opportunity to take a few infrared photos while I am at the Riverside Museum location on the River Clyde, Glasgow, my favourite urban locations in Scotland.  This image was taken earlier in the morning, hence the good light and shadows and I decided on a fresh different colour edit, with an emphasis on red.  one of the things I like about infrared photography is the ability to change the colours in a natural way with our spending ages on the edit, whilst at the same time keeping it real.  It is vital during this difficult time that we try to keep creative and use at least some of the time in an effective way.  That said, I can't wait to travel around Scotland soon.

See you soon.

Kind Regards

Colin

Just for a change I am going to talk about choice of IT equipment and operating system for professional photographers.  As a corporate and event photographer working in Scotland, fast workflow and an efficient desktop are essential to running a successful photography business.  With more of our work done on mobile technology, through our phones and tablets, the way we work has changed dramatically.  For many years I was a pc person and although I purchased a Macbook when I went professional, the different operating system and steep learning curve prevented me from changing to Apple products.  However, I have now purchased an IMac and I am now a fully fledged Apple convert.  Whilst everyone is different, I would like to let you know my reasons for changing.  Whilst a PC can often have a faster operating system, the Apple updates, always improve on the current system.  Many Windows updates just frustrated me in the past.  The quality of the screen in IMacs is excellent and they sync well with other devices.  As a fine art photographer working in Scotland, I also think it is important to have a professional looking desktop set-up for the customer and Apple IMacs look great and are instantly recognisable.  However, the biggest reason is the longevity of the devices.  All my Apple products last longer than their Android counterparts, PC systems can start going slower after 2 years.  So I am looking forward to the new year with my new gear.  Apple is not perfect mind you, the hard drive size is often limited, as are upgrades and the products are more expensive.  Word also works better on a PC system, but more importantly, Photoshop works better on a Mac, with many of the updates designed to improve the experience on the Apple systems.  So in the long run I am looking forward to working with my Mac.  Finally, I just think it is more fun, but I am sure you all have your own opinion and there will be photographers out there who will defend and prefer PC systems.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards

Colin

Professional Photographers in Scotland Reflect on the New Year https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/professional-photographers-in-scotland-reflect-on-the-new-year Hi Everyone

A bit late with my blog this week but I have a good reason as I have been affected by Covid 19 in the last 2 or 3 weeks.  After a couple of bad weeks, I appear to have turned a corner and hope to be up and running again in the new year.  As I always do at this time of the year, I like to reflect on the year and look at the highlights as a professional photographer, working as a corporate and event photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland.  Yes, this has been a very challenging and unique year for us all but it is also important to look at the highlights and aims for the year ahead.  Due to lockdown, I have completed far more personal projects, particularly in infrared and landscape photography and I have also started on my aim to complete an infrared photography book, based on my photos taken around Scotland.  I have also updated by IT equipment, thanks largely to a digital development grant, thanks again to Business Gateway and Digital Boost who funded 75% of the costs, towards the purchase of an iMac and digital event and corporate lens for my Canon camera.  The year also included some supercar events, before the lockdown restrictions and it started with a very interesting whisky event photoshoot in Leith, Edinburgh.  I also had a lot more food photoshoots this year, which was interesting, in addition to a PR photoshoot for the opening of a new supermarket and a great classic car photo commission in East Lothian, so there was plenty of variety even with all the restrictions. I have also completed my first photoshoots wearing a mask, not that easy when you wear glasses.  I have re-ignited my enthusiasm for landscape photography and added new subjects to my infrared image collection, including insects and bees, birds, waves and harbour photography.  Unfortunately, all my conference photography commissions were cancelled after March and I had loads booked this year, although I am hoping to get going in this Line of work next year after we have all been vaccinated.  However, the one thing I am really looking forward to doing is travelling to other locations in Scotland once all the restrictions have been lifted and a trip to Skye is definitely on the cards.  So, onwards and upwards and looking forward to 2021.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Kind Regards

Colin

Keeping the Creativity Going for the Professional Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/keeping-the-creativity-going-for-the-professional-photographer-in-scotland HI Everyone

I haven’t taken any photos this week as I have been grounded in the house due to a virus.  With little energy to do much, you can still make use of the time at home to re-assess your strategy for the following year, to determine where things can be changed and what the focus will be for 2021.  Of course this has been a pretty awful year for most of us, but there is still time to plan and look forward.  As a professional corporate and conference photographer working in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland, I have suffered from a huge loss of event and corporate photography commissions and just when things were starting to look up in the summer, it has all gone backwards again.  However, the future looks good with a vaccine on the horizon.  I have also re-appraised my IT strategy and have moved almost exclusively to IMac, following successfully obtaining a Digital Development grant from Business Gateway, for which I very much appreciate. professional corporate I have also decided to focus more on fine art and landscape photography for now until the corporate and event photography industry picks up, probably the beginning of next year.  I am expecting to publish a book on Infrared Photography in Scotland next year and another exhibition is also on the way.  So onwards and upwards, keep positive and look to the future, don’t stand still and keep with the creativity.

Until next time.

Preparing for the Unexpected for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/preparing-for-the-unexpected-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi All

Today I am going to briefly talk about the need for all professional photographers to act on impulse and break the rules sometimes.  As a professional corporate and event photographer working in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, I am constantly looking for better ways to photograph my subjects and often these new ways can not be found through boooks or training, you have have to act on impulse and try new things.  I started taking photos from ground level when I first supplied urban photography images for my design agency clients in Edinburgh.  Thety had a specific remit which I supplied but I added on my own slant to the commissioned photos and guess what, they loved it.  Last weekend I went a walk with my family to Traprain Law in East Lothian and wondered whether to take my infrared camera, it was dull and misty, with no real sunlight, not ideal conditions for infrared photographers.  However, I thought why not, I have never photographed mist in infrared.  So I gave it a try and although I would have preferred some sunlight, the results gave me some fairly mystical erie effects in infrared, that I would not have obtained using a conventional landscape photography camera.  There would have been some infrared light creeping through the mist and although I struggled for light, tha camera coped well and I was happy with the results.  So the moral of the story is, try new things, break the rule of two thirds, photograph event commissions in infrared, try black and white when colour is the norm, do some HDR etc.  I am not saying dont do as the client has asked, just the opposite, supply them with what they want and also more, bringing your own personal bespoke style to the forefront.

Hope this helps.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Landscape photography and the importance of exploring your local area https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/landscape-photography-and-the-importance-of-exploring-your-local-area H i Everyone

With the pandemic still upon us and lots of mini lockdowns around preventing professional photographers from obtaining commissions, I think this would be a good time to look at the importance of exploring your local area and making the best of the surroundings outside your own doorstep.  As a professional corporate and event photographer living in East Lothian, who normally photographs conferences and events in Edinburgh or throughout Scotland, the importance of keeping busy can never be underestimated.  Whilst we are all human and there are times when this Covid situation will get us down, you can help stay sane by taking photographs and concentrating on other projects, of course that is easier when you live in a place like Dunbar, with a wonderful coastline.  However, the need to keep going is still there.  I have been concentrating on a number of individual infrared photography projects, including the following: Harbours, Seabirds and Seascapes, in addition to utilising the autumn leaves from an infrared perspective.  Not to forget landscape photography of my local area at Belhaven Bay and some portraits of my family, when the kids let me that is.  It is also a good time to plan out what approach you want to take once this is all over.  Or find alternative markets, I  have certainly done more PR photography work recently, to replace the conference photography void.  I have also applied for a digital development grant to update my IT equipment and also for an additional lens.  This has also been a time to learn software skills and get to know my equipment in general and possibly upping the game with regard to social media posts.

So dust yourself up and get going.  You will benefit from this course of action after all this is over.

Until next time.

Different Styles of Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/different-styles-of-infrared-photography Hi Everyone

As you all know I am a specialist infrared photographer, often found out and about East Lothian and throughout Scotland, what I wanted to talk about today was the various uses for infrared converted cameras.  Whilst I like to photograph black and white infrared with sparkling white trees and extreme contrasty photographs with vibrant colours like the next guy, I also like to use the camera in a conventional way.  Although we require bright sun for most infrared photos, you can still use them on an overcast weather day, especially if the sun is peeking through, the main thing is to have some kind of contrast in the sky.  As infrared cameras have extensive dynamic range, they can be used to portray fine art black and white images, depicting strong detail  and contrast after editing.  I have sold a number of landscape photos to clients who were unaware that they are infrared, they just liked the dramatic nature of the photograph.  Long exposure on an infrared camera also results in more drama and detail in the sky or water, if this is part of the scene.  When it comes to colour, infrared converted cameras can enable you to switch colours and tone in a more natural way to conventional editing.  You can also bring out the blue sky and easily decrease or increase saturation according to the colour effect you are going for.  I would say that in about 50% of the photos I post on social media, the viewer is unaware they are infrared.  I can like everyone else, revert to taking a dramatic black and white infrared shot or even a colour image with red trees for instance, when it is obvious that the photo is infrared.  however as a professional corporate and event photographer working in Scotland, often I want to inject some realism into my photography for my clients.

Hope this helps.

Until next time.

Re-visiting Locations for the Infrared Photography in Scotland Book https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/re-visiting-locations-for-the-infrared-photography-in-scotland-book Hi Everyone

Recently I have been revisiting locations I haven’t been for a while to try and improve and or do something entirely different at the location.  As it appears I will have a few professional corporate photography commissions coming up in Scotland soon and now is a good time to try and utilise the free time for my fine art photography.  it is important to try and develop what you did on previous occasions and to find new areas to interpret the scene.  This time I visited the Bridges at South Queensferry.  Of course as a photographer, every time you visit a location, the sky is different and this should present you with new options, particularly for infrared photographers.  There are also different vantage points to consider, how you can edit the photo in a different way, maybe you have new software, or in my case, I have learned some new photoshop skills during the lockdown.  I decided to change my vantage points for this photoshoot, including lower angled photos, I also managed to get access to parts of the harbour I hadn’t visited before.  So there are always new angles to be considered.  To summarise, the more you visit a location, the more you can reach perfection with the photo.

So happy photographing everyone.

Kind Regards

Colin

Fine Art Wave Photography in Scotland - Top 7 Tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/fine-art-wave-photography-in-scotland--m-top-7-tips Hi All

As a professional corporate and event photogrpaher working in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, when I am not out photographing events and sport, I add to my collection of fine art infrared photography and also landscape work.  Sometimes you get a day, especially in Scotland at this time of year, when the weather appears unsuitable for any type of outdoor photogrpahy.  However, as I live in Dunbar in East Lothian, often the storms we get can be ideal for photography and it also adds to my collection of wave photographs.  Yesterday was a case in point and it was also raining, so I had to be careful.  So here is my top 5 tips for wave photography:

1.  Be prepared with clothing and protection for you gear if possible, yesterday was a spur of the moment photoshoot, so I had neither, but try and avoid this.

2.  Dont take too many risks, I have lost 2 cameras to salt water and waves can be unpredictable, once I was covered by a wave which destryed my gear, now my insurers will not cover me anymore for salt water damage.  So be careful.

3. Shoot with a view to either colour or black and white, yesterday was dull, so I was trying to visualise a finalised black and white image.

4. Try shooting at different speeds to freeze movement or create a blur effect.

5.  Photograph with a view to including the landscape and also try up close images, depicting the waves on their own, the effect can often be interesting.

6.  Try to catch the wave just at the right time at peak height as they crash against the tide or the buildings/landscape.

7.  Include people sometimes, to add drama and scale to the photograph.

Hope this helps.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Preparation for the Professional Photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland - Top 10 Tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/preparation-for-the-professional-photographer-in-edinburgh-scotland Hi Everyone

As a professional corporate and event photographer working in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, you cannot underestimate the need to properly prepare for corporate and event photoshoots.  lets take the example of a conference photographer working at an event in Scotland for instance.  You will have been given a brief in advance by the client with instructions as to what they want from you as a photographer.  it is then your duty to do just that and also go beyond what they requested.  Here is list of things you need to do to prepare for a photoshoot:

1.  Make sure you understand the brief, including the location, timings, when they require the photos, key people etc and if something is not clear, then ask in advance of the meeting.

2.  Sometimes its the unexpected things that cause problems, be sure you can get to the location with lots of time to left, so that you a have al least an hour and a half to spare to allow for any disasters such as traffic, car problems etc.  A delegate can be late for a conference but the photographer can't.

3.  Get all your gear ready a couple of days before, so you have time to buy batteries etc if there are any problems.  This includes charging lots of batteries, cleaning the equipment, making sure it works etc.

4.  Think clearly about what photos you will be taking and select the gear you need, ie will you need a macro lens or a telephoto, will it be better to use smaller mirrorless gear etc.  Don't over pack your bag, as you will have to lug the gear around and leave a lot of it unattended.  However make sure you have back up in case of malfunction.

5.  Map out the timings and write them down, on a programme if possible.  This is vital for conferences, weddings and PR, where timing is key.

6.  Make sure you have the a note of the key contact people, name, email address and mobile number (for emergencies) ie the person who commissioned you and and main players at the event and introduce yourself in advance of the event if possible, or on the day.

7.  Determine in advance when and how they want the photos ie if they require some on the day of the event then take a laptop etc, also establish in advance how and when you will be paid. 

8.  When you are arrive look professional and be friendly to everyone before the start of the event.

9.  If you have a long day ahead and lets face it most conferences are, try and make sure you have as much energy as possible for the next day, get a good nights sleep the night before and try and relax.

10. Finally, enjoy and get creative.

Hope this help.

Until next time.

the Kelpies in Infrared by professional fine art photographer Scotland Colin Wright https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/the-kelpies-in-infrared-by-professional-fine-art-photographer-scotland-colin-wright Hi All

A quick blog post.  continuing in my quest to boost my infrared photography collection, to enable me to publish my Infrared Photography in Scotland book in the near future, I paid a second visit this year to the Kelpies in Falkirk.  The weather was ideal for infrared photography with some blue sky and cloud and plenty of sunshine, there was even some dark skies and a storm about to start.  I lost my polarising filter, which dropped into the lake, but it was worth it.  Why is the Kelpies one of my favourite locations, well the metall surface of the installation is ideal for infrared light reflection for a start.  Often as a professional event and corporate photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I am looking to include infrared images with the commission and this location is ideal.  A storm was also brewing which created dramatic skies and the location also has a river, creating dark reflections on water, which is ideal, in addition there are boats and trees, all of which makes it a fascinating place to visit.  So drop on over to the website and let me know what you think of the photos.

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photos for Architecture and Corporate Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/infrared-photos-for-architecture-and-corporate-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

As someone who is both a fine art photographer and also a professional corporate and event photographer in Scotland, I have often been asked how infrared photography can be utilised from a commercial point of view in everyday use.  Whilst I am able to promote and sell infrared images from a fine art point of view, I can also present the images to my corporate and event photography clients, in addition to the photographs they have asked for and they are always happy with the results, often using the infrared photos in their final publications.  This is the case for weddings. sport and PR photography, but it really comes into its own for architecture, urban photos, motor vehicles, vintage cars and landscape photography.  You do require a commission which enables you to go outdoors and the weather has to be suitable ie some sunshine if possible and it is better with some blue sky and clouds.  Architecture particularly lends itself to infrared, as the high dynamic range is ideal for this genre.  Metallic objects show up really well in infrared.  As an infrared photographer, I have different uses for my infrared converted camera, often I want to create a realistic photograph which has something just that little bit unique but can also represent a normal analogue photo, most of the time, especially in black and white, the client will not be aware it is in black and white, or they don't care, if they like the image, that is the main thing.  A recent visit to the Falkirk Wheel was a case in point.  This fantastic example of architecture and engineering, with the backdrop of a famous canal, overlooking countryside and hills is ideal for all types of infrared and it enables you to create something different at a location which has been photographed to death.  The same is true for urban architecture  and famous tourist scenes. Infrared can give you that something just a bit special to show the client.  So keep this in mind.  Always try and assert your own Unique Selling Point (USP) in your commissions, otherwise, the only real difference you have to the hundreds, no really thousands of other photographers out there, is your price.

Hope that helps.

Until next time.

The Wave Photography Project, Tips and Hints for Photographing Waves https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/the-wave-photography-project-tips-and-hints-for-photographing-waves Hi Everyone

As you know during lockdown, I was looking for projects in the absence of professional corporate and event photography commissions around Edinburgh and Scotland and one of the things I did was photograph waves during storms in Dunbar., in East Lothian.  The other day, I extended the wave photography project to include infrared photography and a photo is attached.  I thought this would be a good time to offer some tips on photographing waves and here are a few below:

1.  Try not to use your best camera if possible. I once lost ad fairly new camera and lens to waves, soaking me and ruining the camera in the process.

2.  Keep safe.  the force of a wave can knock you flying and even draw you back to the water.

3.  Experiment with shutter speeds, fast at about 1/800th and slow, with a monopod or tripod at 1/15th for example, for different effects.

4.  Try close up to the waves and take in the context of the landscape also, ie with buildings or people in the background.

5.  Think colour and black and white.

6.  Experiment, I recently used my infrared equipment to arrive at different effects.

7.  Try some low level shots parallel with the waves and some shooting from above.

8.  Watch what everyone else is doing, then do something different.

9.  Use telephoto and wide angeled lenses.

10.  Last of all enjoy, but keep an eye on the wave, with the other on your camera.  They have a habit of surprising you and soaking both yourself and worse of all, your camera.

That's all.  Hope it helps.

Kind Regards

Corporate Event Photography Re-starts - Store Opening Photoshoot in Edinburgh, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/corporate-event-photography-re-starts---store-opening-photoshoot-in-edinburgh-scotland Hi Everyone

Finally the corporate event photography commissions re-started for me this week in Edinburgh with a corproate store opening photoshoot at the Company Shop in Edinburgh.  This was a photoshoot like no other, with the participants social distancing and wearing masks indoors.  It was enjoyable but definately a bit different from an other photoshoot I have done.  The Master Chef Gary Mclean was there to open this grand store in Edinburgh, which was also attended by company representatives from the food and clothing industries.  As this was the first time I really had to wear a mask at a photoshoot, luckily I took my contact lenses, as I was unable to see through my glasses with my mask on.  As images during the virus are very importnat just now, I had to ask the participants to social distance, as we would not be able to use photos where they were standing too close to each other, so this was new to me, especially when it is human nature to move closer to someone when you are taliking to them.  For outdoor group shots and the cutting of the ribbon photos, normally, I would ask people to group as closely together as possible but in this case we had to improvise with gaps in between the people taking part.   So it was all very interesting.  Still very enjoyable and now I know what to do on a socially distanced photoshoot.  

Looking forward to more corporate and event commissions in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.

Until next time.

All the best

Seeing the World as a Professional Infrared Photographer https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/seeing-the-world-as-a-professional-infrared-photographer Hi Everyone 

 

As I update my infrared photography collection from various locations around Scotland, it is interesting to re-visit certain places that I have never photographed in infrared but which I have photographed using conventional photographic equipment.  It’s a bit like the switch from analogue to digital, it was like entering a whole new world for the first time.  Recently, I visited the Falkirk Wheel for the first time in years.  Now this is a location that I had visited before but not with my infrared camera.  So what made the visit different.  For a start it was raining most of the time and while this is not the end of the world for landscape photographers, it can be for the infrared photographer.  However my infrared camera can still take creative images, as long as it is not too dark.  So what other considerations are there.  Well you are looking for trees and grass where possible.  You are looking for some sun rays even if it is cloudy and you hope for some blue skies, however, a stormy cloudy day can also produce some good results in infrared as you are still getting improved dynamic range with the final result. You also have do do more pre-visualisation with infrared and the result displaying on your camera screen still requires a lot of work using editing software afterwards and you have to be able to visualise which photos can be brought to life, so you are looking for contrast, dynamic range and perfect exposure.  Focusing is also different for infrared than it is with a conventional event photography photoshoot in Edinburgh or around Scotland and some lenses focus better than others in infrared and it’s not all to do with their cost for some strange reason.  I also look for water and metallic subjects in infrared as they look different in infrared, water tends to be darker and metallic objects reflect infrared light in a different way to create an interesting fine art photography image. The other thing worth considering is whether the photo will be suitable for colour infrared or black and white.  Colour usually works better in the bright sunny days.  So there you have it, a lot more to consider when you visit the location in infrared.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Until next time.

The Kelpies in Infrared, Professional Fine Art Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/the-kelpies-in-infrared-professional-fine-art-photography Hi Everyone 

 

When I first started shooting digital infrared photography one of the first things I photographed was the Kelpies installation in Falkirk.  This fine work of art is a major tourist attraction in Scotland and I also had the privilege of photographing it as part of a corporate photography commission in various locations around Scotland for Scottish Enterprise in 2015.  However, along with the ponies at Traprain Law, The Isle if Skye and my highland cow photos, the Kelpies has been one of the best sellers.  So it was with a bit of excited anticipation that I returned to the location last week.  The weather was perfect for infrared, with lots of cloud and sunshine and while it was busy, it was not as crowded as it would have been in July and August.  The location is also ideal as it overlooks a canal with boats, in addition to trees and grass, also great for infrared.  Metallic structures are also ideal subjects for this genre and the sheer size of the installation creates a rather superhero effect.  Combine this with the rather spooky nature of infrared and you have an ideal location for professional infrared photography.  Visit the website for more, but in the meantime here is the original photo that started it all, shown below.

Until next time.

Kind Regards 

Colin

Lessons Learned for photographers from Covid 19 https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/lessons-learned-for-photographers-from-covid-19 Dear All

Six months ago in my blog, I was hoping when we arrived at this point that we could have moved on to some kind of normality and whilst things are better, we are still living in a difficult time, which will probably only change once a vaccination has arrived.  As a professional corporate and event photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, the events industry is only slowly starting again and mostly at limited capacity, often without the need for conference and event photographers.  However, as with every difficult situation there are always positives and things we can learn.   I thought it would be a good idea to list a few of the lessons learned and these are indicated below:

1. We have all learned that nothing can be taken for granted.  Nothing is exempt from this kind of emergency.  Some of the sports photography and cultural events have experienced cancellation or postponement for the first time since the second world war.

2. There are always options to diversify.  I have spent more time learning new skills and improving areas that I haven't worked in for a while.

3. Photographers have had more time to explore their creative side.  I have done a lot of infrared photography during this period and the time has been beneficial from a fine art photography point of view..

4. You can explore where you live from a photographic point of view.  I admit this is probably a bit easier if you live in a lovely scenic place like my home town of Dunbar, but I imagine there are opportunities wherever you live.

5. communication with our peers and clients has been vital and we have all had the opportunity to explore this more during the lockdown and immediately after.  I certainly have tried to be more focussed on social media and communicating with my fellow photographers.

6. This may sound strange but I have also used this time to explore all aspects of my camera and software.  I have tried to use the free time to ensure I know my software and equipment inside out.

7. This period has been a valuable to time to think your financial and photographic strategy for the future.  We should all be doing this anyway and as a newspaper photographer in the past I had to do a big re-think of my photographic priorities and strategy when this aspect of the market diminished somewhat.  This is one area that we all tend to ignore when things are busy, but it is good practice to continually evaluate your strategy.

Anyway, more on this soon. I will leave you with an infrared photo I took recently.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Urban Photography Glasgow, by Colin Wright, Corporate and Fine Art Photographer Scotland. https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/urban-photography-glasgow-by-colin-wright-corporate-and-fine-art-photographer-scotland Hi All

As a professional corporate, event photographer working around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, it is always good to get the opportunity to visits different places.  I paid a visit to Glasgow on friday, to add to my infrared photography Scotland collection and also to get some urban photography images of this great city.  I thought this would be a good time to do a few Tips for the Urban Photographer, so here they are as follows:

1. Try low angles, making the best of puddles, objects on the ground and the dramatic perspective.

2. If you can try and include people in the photos, to give the images a sense of reality and buzz through movement, more difficult just now, I know due to the lockdown restrictions and the lack of people in urban offices.

3. Try to include famous landmarks in the city ie buildings, statues and bridges, or famous streets.

4. Be careful, you are in a city.  Be aware if you have a £2000 camera on a tripod in the middle of a busy location, or even more so, in a quiet area at night time.

5. Take loads of photos and try different things, with regard to the angle, composition etc.  Get creative also at home with software ie conversions to black and white, increase the dynamic range and structure in your editing. You could also try a little HDR, or focus stacking.

Hope that helps.

Until next time.

Sport Event Photography in Scotland and the Partial lockdown https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/sport-event-photography-in-scotland-and-the-partial-lockdown Hi Everyone

One of the things I have missed during this awful pandemic has been sport and event photography in Scotland.  As a professional sports, event and conference photographer working around Scotland, I have really missed this aspect of my work.  Some of the events cancelled included, motor sport, football, rugby, bungee jumping and golf.  So when i went a walk with my daughter last week, I jumped (pardon the pun) at the chance to photograph her jumping from some old fallen trees along the East Lothian coast at the John Muir Walk.  I thought I would make it interesting and I fitted a manual focus fish-eye lens onto my Fuji XT2 and fired a few shots of at a very low angle, while Gina jumped onto the sand.  The results were pretty good, with the low angle giving the impression of extreme height.  Of course, it helps that Gina is really up for this kind of thing and her athletic movements also resulted in some dramatic images.  I have always been a fan of low angled shooting at ground level and in previous corporate positions, I have included some arty dramatic ground level urban and architectural images.  I also completed a project on puddle photos taken in Edinburgh and Glasgow and I also try to incorporate this technique in my sports photography commissions and infrared photography work where appropriate.  So enjoy the photos, more are on the website.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

The Editing Debate for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/the-editing-debate-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi All

 

One of the subjects that comes up constantly for me as professional event and corporate photographer working in Scotland, I am often asked how much editing I do and what my opinion is to manipulating or editing in photography.  My general attitude is that I want to be spending as much time taking photos and less time in front of a pc.  Photography is all about composition and light.  Of course you would be mad not to take advantage of the capabilities of digital software and infrared photography requires some digital editing to achieve the final product.  When it comes to corporate event photography, you may be processing hundreds of photographs from a conference photography commission in Edinburgh and you simply don’t have the time to do much editing, except for a few special photos.  The other thing I have an issue with is replacing skies in photos. Photography is about capturing a special moment in time, showing the fantastic landscape for what it is and if you have to replace the sky with one that you took last week, well then I am sorry, this is not a photograph and nothing more than a digital creation.  For portrait and wedding images, a certain amount of editing is acceptable but in my opinion, and I stress this is just my point of view, if you are altering the body shape or changing the face considerably, again I have a problem with this and it is not what photography is all about.  This is not an anti technology or editing rant, but more of a keep it real message, to prevent what is essentially a form of cheating if taken too far.  The good news is, you can always tell a good photo from an overly manipulated one.

 

I will leave you with an older photo rom the air show at East Fortune, which like a lot of events has sadly been cancelled this year due to Covid 19.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

The Luxury of Time for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/the-luxury-of-time-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi All

I thought as we are approaching an ease in the lockdown regulations that this would be a good moment to talk about the benefits of having more time to concentrate on personal photographic projects.  As a professional fine art and corporate event photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, my event photography work has been a bit non-existant recently, although there are signs things are starting to pick up.

One of the advantages of this situation is that you are forced to concentrate on something fairly local and this restriction can be a good thing, as you have to think in a more micro way, concetrating on the small details of the place you live.  How many of us dont visit what is around us.  I think I visited Edinburgh Castle once in my lifetime, yet it is the first thing a visitor to the city would do.  My infrared work has been a saviour during this time and I have had the luxury of being able to concetrate on small photography projects.  I have visited a lot of harbours recently and each harbour is different and has its own individual challenges and cretive possiblities.  On a recent visit to Eyemouth Harbour, I noticed reflections onteh watter, casued by a combination of light and oil in the water, I wondered how this would look in infrared and the results are shown on my website, with a photo attached to this blog.  Photography has proved good for my mental health during this time and also forced me to stop thinking of getting new equipment, as I have no money anyway, I have been aiming to use my existing gear even more effectively.  I have a wedding photography commission due next month and some motor sport event photography in Scotland, but all this is still in a bit of doublt at the moment, so we shall wait and see.  Until then, there will be plenty of time for infrared photography and special projects.

Until next time, stay safe.

Professional photographers in Scotland - Taking a Different Perspective https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/professional-photographers-in-scotland---taking-a-different-perspective Hi All

One of the challenging things for professional corporate event photographers in Edinburgh and around Scotland during this lockdown has been how to best utilise our time without travelling as much as we would like.  The irony is that with more time we would tend to travel to photograph different destinations but the lockdown has forced most of us to concentrate on the subjects close to home and try to see things from a different perspective.  I managed to re-visit a few of my favourite local subjects, such as waves, the kittiwake chicks in Dunbar, bees and other local landmarks, but this time I tried to do it from a different perpective and often photographed subjects in infrared that I had previously never tackled before ie with the birds and insects for instance.  There is also an opportunity to perfect a particular subject through repitition and to experiment when you wouldn't otherwise have the time, just keeping your eye in is good enough, so that when you return to some professional event or coprorate photography work, you are not rusty and you will be raring to go.  I have also tried out a lot of new tricks and techniques with my software.  given that we probably only use about 20% of the capability of our software, especially with a programme as extensive as Photoshop, we sould at least try new things to offer a different perspective to our clients.  So keep the creative juices flowing and dont let this situation get you down.  I know its easier said than done but we will hopefully come out of this as better photographers.  I for one know I will have a more extensive library of fine art photography images once this is all over.

So, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Wildlife Photography, Kittiwake Chicks at Dunbar Harbour, East Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/wildlife-photography-kittiwake-chicks-at-dunabr-harbour-east-lothian Hi All

Now for something a bit different.  As a corporate and event photographer, operating in Edinburgh, East Lothian and throughout Scotland, freelance photography work is starting to come back again and I just finished a commercial corporate job recently photographing a classy Range Rover car for a Luxury Car Chauffeur business, which was great fun.  However, I have had a bit more time on my hands and have managed a few projects that I would have found difficult otherwise due to lack of time.  Many years ago, I photographed the kittiwake chicks in Dunbar Harbour and it has been a few years since I have returned.  This year, however, I have manged a few days photographing the chicks just after hatching and the related activity that you get during this time.  It is interesting watching the parents fetch the fish for the little ones and seeing how they rapidly grow - some of them are a bit like teenagers by now.  It is a challenging subject to photograph as you have to be quick.  You need a long lens but there is no space for a tripod, so you have to hand hold, which can be very tiring on your arms and your neck hurts from looking up alll the time.  However, as lomg as you keep alert and shoot at a fast speed to combat camera shake, it is well worth it in the end.  If you are patient enough and stay for at least an hour, the birds get used to you and trust you more, which means they are more likely to behave naturally.  Anyway there are lots of pictures on my website in the Miscellaneous section, in addition to the one with this blog.  Hopefully some of the corporate event photography commissions and weddings in East Lothian, Edinburgh and around Scotland, will start to commence soon.

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Return from the Wilderness for a Professional Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/return-from-the-wilderness-for-a-professional-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone

I have my first commission tomorrow after 3 months of virtual lockdown.  After a whole load of corporate event and conference photography bookings were cancelled, it's good to get back to doing what I love ie being a professional photographer working in and around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.  Tomorrow i will be in my home county of East Lothian, where I will be photographing a classic car as a promotion next to Scotland's golf coast around this great county.  I will be at Archerfield, Dirleton, Dunbar and Musselburgh Golf Club, I cant wait.  I know some photographers who have taken a different approach during lockdown and who haven't really continued to shoot during this very difficult period, but although I had my moments of depression like everyone else, I have to keep taking photos and never failed to be motivated.  My personal infrared project has also flourished during this time and I have made good progress on my infrared book, as well as providing a lot of new material for the publication.  I also have extended my photography of harbours and waves and tried a topic new to infrared for me, namely photographing bees and insects in infrared.  So all in all its been eventful, but i am eager to get back to some commercial PR and corporate photography and hopefully tomorrow will be the start of more to come.  I hopefully have some motor sport photography in August and a wedding in September, so things are starting to look up.

Anyway, watch this space for more to come.  Until next time.

Kind Regards

Harbour Photography in Infrared around Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/harbour-photography-in-infrared-around-scotland Hi Everyone

Like a lot of businesses, as a professional freelance photographer who normally photographs events and corporate conferences around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, in addition to fine art photography, I have had to look at fresh markets and projects during this difficult time.  However from a positive point of view, this has also enabled me to explore new ideas and extend existing initiatives that I previously had to delay due to lack of time.  I have always liked photographing harbours around Scotland, nothing new in that, I hear you say and you would be right, however, this time, I am only photographing them in infrared.  The harbours in question will all be located in Scotland and will include colour and infrared photos.  The harbours in infrared photos include: Dunbar, Port Seton, Eyemouth, Cove Bay, St Abbs, Crail and Skye.  The ones not located in East Lothian or the Borders were taken before lockdown.

So what considerations should I take into account when photographing harbours in infrared.  Here they are below, for what it’s worth:

1. The usual rules for infrared photography apply ie sunshine for the best photos, as near to mid-day as possible, although on one occasion it was foggy and I still managed a few good shots

2. Check the tides, the harbour will look totally different without water and when it is shallow

3. Try and go when there is a higher likelihood of boats, ie get to know when the fishermen go out

4. Try and get the old boats in the photo ie the ones with character that look great in Infrared

5. Clouds are great for harbour photos with a blue sky backdrop to give that infrared contrast that we all love

6. Don’t just photograph the boats, there are, seagulls, nets, ropes, engines and even seals and otters in some harbours.  I haven’t photographed an otter in a harbour yet, but I have managed a seal or two

7. Don’t stand too close to the edge and pay attention, I haven’t fallen in, but I did injure myself when I was concentrating too hard on the photo and not on the ground I front of me

8. Take a normal camera with you also, you may just catch a photo that needs conventional equipment

9. Don’t be frightened to include people now and again.  They will help to tell a story

10. Vary your angles and vantage points for something different.  You may want to be down at a low level or overlooking the harbour from above, but the main thing is to try and get something new and original

Hope this helps.

Until next time.

Looking at the Finer Details for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/looking-at-the-finer-details-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As a professional fine art and corporate photographer working in and around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, the lockdown and subsequent effects of this crisis has had an effect on my life and work, but throughout this period I have never lost my enthusiasm for photography.  It has just taken on a different format.  As you know I am an infrared photographer, working on a project to highlight infrared photography in Scotland.  While looking for something different to do, I decided to expand my infrared collection to include insects, particularly bees and wasps and this combined with the fantastic colours of plants at this time of year has produced some interesting results.  With infrared, you never know what the final results will be, especially with colour infrared and this time, I was pleasantly surprised, as most of the original colours came out entirely different in infrared.  Let me know what you think.  I am desperate to get out there and do some corporate photography work in Edinburgh and there are some signs that this could happen in the near future.

Anyway, stay safe.

Kind Regards

Now that we have been in lockdown for a few months and we are starting to get into some kind of routine, I thought this would be a good time to examine lockdown strategies for professional photographers and how we are coping with this new normal.  Whilst there are signs that things are starting to change, it will be a while until photographers feel any kind of normality, particularly event photographers in Scotland, like myself.  However this strange time has enabled us to to explore different ways of working, and or new markets.  Many photographers have been doing the doorstep photos, its not for me, but definately a fresh market for some photographers.   From my point of view, the ability to concentrate on local projects has been my main focus.  Whilst I have always taken local infrared photography and landscape photos in East Lothian, I now have the time to really examine the small details in certain locations, such as Dunbar Harbour and the nesting gulls.  I have also had time to photograph waves, having the luxury of leaving whenever the conditionsa are perfect, this is something that even freelance photographers dont always have due to constant commissions.  Exploring your fine art creative side is more possible and while some days you are a bit down due to the circumstances, particularly the financial implications, other days you are optimistic, I can also use the dark side of things to good effect in my photography to create good fine art images.  I also think my photoshop skills have greatly improved as I have watched a number of instruction videos and had more time to explore my software.  The free time also has enabled me to think more about my future photographic strategy and to update my website and enhance my networking and contact experience through social media.  So to summarise, when my corporate event photography in Scotland picks up again, I will be ready and with extra strings to my bow.

 

So its not all doom and gloom, just get out there and create.

 

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Preparation for photographers in Scotland coming out of lockdown https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/preparation-for-photographers-in-scotland-coming-out-of-lockdown Hi All

As it looks like we are coming out of lockdown slowly but surely, although I imagine I will have to wait a bit longer as a conference and event photographer operating around Edinburgh and Scotland, there are a number of things we can do as professional photographers to prepare for working again, some you may already be doing during the lockdown and others you may not have thought about.  So for what it’s worth, here are my tips for photographers coming out of the lockdown and preparing for some new photography commissions: 

1.  Make sure your website is up to date and has some new content.

2.  Check all your gear is in working order for your first commission.

3.  Practice some photoshoots and try and imagine you are photographing a paid commission, it’s easy to get rusty when you are out of action for a while, this is particularly relevant for event photographers, who will have had little opportunity to photograph large groups of people throughout the last 3 months or so.

4.  Keep your social media presence up and active daily, there is no real excuse for this during lockdown.

5.  I know it can be difficult at a time like this, especially as we have all lost a lot of income, but try and remain positive for the future, or at least take advantage of the days when you feel positive and use them to create and prepare.

6.  Think of the useful things you have experienced over lockdown.  I have extended my infrared work in Scotland and I feel I have taken some of the best photos of my home town in Dunbar, in addition to having more time for new projects like photographing waves etc.

7.  Get in touch through social media with your clients to remind them you are still around.

8.  Try and continue with these projects you started during lockdown, treat this time as a fresh start in some areas.

9.  Hopefully we have all had some access to training over this period, even if it is photoshop or camera manufacturers videos on YouTube, it’s all useful, so remember practice your newly found skills.

10. Spend a bit of time on your appearance, we have all let it slip during lockdown and if possible, get a haircut beforehand your first job, we all look a bit like cavemen just now.

Hope that helps, anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Taking Care During Lockdown for Professional Photographers in Edinburgh and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/taking-care-during-lockdown-for-professional-photographers-in-edinburgh-and-scotland Hi All

 

During this lockdown, as professional photographers we have all had to find ways to keep ourselves occupied.  As a corporate, event and fine art photographer working in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, I also think it is important to keep your creative side flowing.  Of course the lockdown also means that you are limited to photographing outwith your own area.  Now the advantage of this is that you can perfect photographing in your local area under different weather conditions and with different gear, experimenting all the time, while at the same time keeping creative.  The disadvantage is that you may start taking risks as you try out new things.  This was the case last weekend when I went out on an infrared photoshoot in my home town of Dunbar in East Lothian.  I went to the harbour and decided to climb on to an embankment which was full of abandoned materials and fences etc.  Through this vantage point I was able to get a good view of the birds nesting in the rocks, however I wasn't looking carefully and I walked into a metal fence lying on the ground and severely damaged my leg.  This caused a trip to the minor injuries clinic and if an infection occurs I may have to visit the hospital.  So the moral of the story is, take care and whilst you want to get the best possible photos, adhere to safety regulations.  I will probably have to slow down, as I am not 21 anymore.  So after having provided you with this advice, will it change the way I behave in these situations, time will tell.  In the meantime, I will leave you with a photo taken on that fateful day.

 

Until next time.

Coming out of lockdown for professional corporate and event photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/coming-out-of-lockdown-for-professional-corporate-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

As a professional photographer working in corporate and event photography mostly in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland and the North of England, I have I have been severely affected by the Covid 19 situation, given that corporate conference events have all been cancelled and there is little hope new events will be organised this year.  However, what can we do as photographers, especially as there are now signs that we are coming out of the lockdown and there will be some movement.  Here are the things we can do in the meantime:

1. Try and get some part time work if possible but make sure it is only part-time and short term, it is important to keep your focus

2. Keep up with Social Media and website updates, this is important, as you need your site to be noticed as soon as work is available

3. Pursue any projects you have always wanted to do, especially if they involve photographing things locally, I have been taking a lot of infrared photos recently and intend to continue with my aim of publishing a book on infrared photography in Scotland.

4. Keep in touch with other photographers, to keep creative

5. Keep an eye out for training online, particularly free training if you are a photoshop user

6. Try to prepare for areas of photography that could be re-introduced.  I am also a sports photographer and some events may be re-introduced soon

7. Try and branch out into new areas where there could be income potential, ie online sales, or new areas of photography that may be more possible in the early stages of coming out of lockdown

8. Try and keep motivated, photography is a great way to help avoid depression, it has certainly helped me through dark times

9. Get to know your gear more more, read the boring manual and watch videos online.  We all only use a small percentage of our camera's potential

10. Keep taking photos, no matter how bad things get

Hope that helps,

Kind Regards

The Editing Dilemma For Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/the-editing-dilemma-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone 

As a professional fine art, corporate and conference photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland I am accustomed to all the wonderful innovative software that is available for photographers nowadays, however I think there is a line that needs to drawn.  So for this blog, I have decided to have a discussion about editing, both its uses and the future of manipulation in general.  All photographers have faced this dilemma before and we have all discussed it with each other.  When expressing some reservations about over manipulation, a photographer once said to me “but you are an infrared photographer, which is a surreal photographic genre”.  My answer was that infrared light is already present and it is only the naked eye that is unable to detect it.   Also, I tend only to swap the colour channels, spending very little time on editing the images.  Still on the subject of landscape photography in Scotland, I personally feel that swapping skies, or backgrounds is a step too far.  The scene in front of you simply hasn’t ever existed and is just digital graphic at best.  Part of landscape photography is capturing the moment and the atmosphere, so creating a non existent image is far removed from that description.  There are also some portrait photography software companies that over-manipulate the photos.  I won’t mention any names, changing the shape and look of a human being to excess is not a photograph, let’s keep it moderate, without overly digitising the image.  If you are spending ages on one photo, you probably haven’t taken a good one.  Don’t get me wrong, I use photoshop and particularly like the On One software and Nik filters but I also feel we have to protect the profession and keep it real.

We can discuss his in more detail later, so until next time, take care and stay safe.

Kind Regards

Top Tips for an Event Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/top-tips-for-an-event-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone 

I thought with the extension of the lockdown that this would be a good time to look at some top tips for event photography.  For the purposes of this blog we will keep it general, so that the advice can apply to all types of events, from weddings to gala days or graduation photography.  Whilst as a professional corporate and event photographer working in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, I also do a fair amount of sports photography, we won’t include this today, staying with corporate and general public photography events.

So here we go:

1 Always be prepared and if at all possible check out the venue before hand, so you know how to get there and where the best shooting positions will be

2. Take note of the time of day when you will be required, this is very important for outdoor events and will effect the photos in a big way, it is up to you to overcome any lighting issues, but try and anticipate them in advance

3. Communicate regularly with the organisers and establish a good relationship with them before the event

4. Be friendly and helpful at all times, otherwise you may not be asked back

5. Make sure all your gear is ready, ie batteries fully charged and ready, with back up for all important equipment

6. Know the timings inside out and write them down 

7. Always photograph what you are asked to do ,but add your own creative stuff.  They will nearly always like it, even if it’s not what they were expecting.

8. Practice in advance in your head the shots you are going to take and try them out before the start of the event

9. Dont panici if you don’t get the good shots at the start, they will come, it can take a while to get going, but just make sure you catch the key moments

10. Keep smiling, it always helps and remember you are getting paid to do something you love

Hope this helps, more to come on corporate photography tips soon.

Kind Regards

Colin

Tips for Photographing Cars by Event and Fine Art Photographer, Edinburgh Colin Wright https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/tips-for-photographing-cars-by-event-and-fine-art-photographer-edinburgh-colin-wright Hi Everyone

 

With the lockdown seriously effecting photography commissions at the moment, I thought this would be a good time to start a new Tips for Photography today.

As a professional event and corporate photographer operating in Scotland, I have undertaken many commissions which involved photographing cars, from supercar events, to vintage cars and scrapyard and general car photos as part of my infrared in Scotland project.  I thought this would be a good time to give you some tips on photographing cars.  To keep it simple I will concentrate on outdoor photos without any flash or artificial light and I promise not to get too technical.  So here we go:

1. Its all about the weather, stormy skies, or sunny days with with blue skies and cloud are ideal, especially for infrared photography

2. Dont be frightened to get in close when shooting a stationary vehicle

3. Keep an eye out for interesting close up detail, especially for vintage and scrap cars

4. Its not always the supercars that are best to photograph, scrap cars and old wrecks often have bags of character

5. Vary your angle, get down low if possible and include interesting backdrops ie trees, sky etc, otherwise, avoid clutter in the backround

6. Use a tripod if you want good depth of field

7. Cars are a great way to showcase other genres such as architecture, weddings, urban photography etc

8. Use people in the photo if relevant ie a driver or someone behind the story of the car

9. Shoot through the window, sometimes the interior of the cars can be interesting

10. If shooting moving vehicles, change your angle, get down low and high and pan your photos now and again to get some motion blur

Hope this helps.

Stay safe.

Until next time

Newspaper and PR Photography tips, by Colin Wright, Professional Photographer Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/newspaper-and-pr-photography-tips-by-colin-wright-professional-photographer-edinburgh Hi All

 

in a previous life, I was a newspaper photographer, supplying photos to publications around the borders, East Lothian, Midlothian and Edinburgh, Scotland.  Whilst the market for this type of photography is much reduced, I still do it occasionally and more importantly, I think it has helped me greatly in my event and conference photography commissions around Scotland.

Here are a few reasons why it has helped me and these can also be interpreted as tips for the aspiring newspaper photographer:

1. You need to work fast and react to a very tight timetable.  I was often asked to attend numerous football and rugby games all happening at the same time, after a morning of other photoshoots on my daily rota

2. You need to be able to photograph a variety of different subjects in a short space of time ie sport, gala days, neighbour disputes, architecture

3. You have to be able to adapt to using limited equipment, you cant lug around lots of gear or risk leaving it in your car all the time

4. You have to be good with people, ie accommodate them, listen and try to get the best out of them, use your charm and humour

5. You must edit and send the photos as soon as possible, if not on the go through wifi, then immediately when you get home.  There is not time for complicated editing either, keep it simple

Anyway, hope these help, more to come in the future.

Until next time, stay safe.

Kind Regards

Professional Photographers Surviving Lockdown in East Lothian, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/professional-photographers-surviving-lockdown-in-east-lothian-scotland Hi All

As a professional event and fine art photographer from Scotland, like all freelancers and pretty much all of us to be honest, this is an extremely difficult time, especially if you have financial worries and children to cope with, add to that elderly relatives and it isn't easy.  However, I still think there is time for creativity and on my daily allowed wanders I have often taken the opportunity to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project, in preparation for my new book on infrared photography from this great country we live in.  As we all know during this time, there are days when you just cant summon up the enthusiasm to do anything, let alone demonstrate your creativity.  Sometimes, however, the fact fact that you are forced to concentrate on your geographical location can often lead to some some really creative images and that is what I have been trying to achieve in my hometown of Dunbar in East Lothian during this lockdown.  You have to be quick as you cant really stand around under the current circumstances, but it still allows you to keep your eye on your photography.  So chin-up and all that, we shall overcome.

Until next time, stay safe.

Kind Regards

Colin

Time for Some Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/time-for-some-infrared-photography Hi Everyone

 

Hope you are all coping during these difficult times.  With all my conferences cancelled for at least the spring time, this puts a temporary halt on professional conference and event photography work in Scotland for the time being, I have a bit more time on my hands, although not too much with 2 children in the house.  However, now is the time to concentrate on a little bit of infrared photography around my local town of Dunbar, in East Lothian, Scotland. On my walks I have managed a few infrared photos along the Belhaven coast and Dunbar.  I am also in the process of completing text for my new book, which I hope to self publish, although I have had some positive responses from some publishers.  I am now about to choose the images for the book, happy to take on any suggestions, the only stipulation is that they were taken in Scotland, as the book is a means of showcasing this amazing country we live in.  It is a kind of alternative guide book for tourists and infrared photography fans.  The photos will consist of colour and black and white images, with a short description of the location/conditions etc.  I will also start the book by providing a brief description in the Introductory paragraph on how infrared photography works and why I got into it.  So watch this space.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Self Isolation and the Professional Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/self-isolation-and-the-professional-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone

Hope you are all managing to get through this difficult time without cracking up.

As a professional corporate and event photographer working in Scotland, I read a lot about how to use this time wisely to develop as professional photographers, however this is easier said than done if you have children in the house, or you are worried about elderly relatives.  It is important to force yourself to try and bring a normality to the situation if you can.  I obviously can’t take any conference photography assignments in Edinburgh just now, but I can photograph infrared when I go on my one walk a day and we do live by the sea, so I am fortunate in that sense.  You can also post on social media and talk to your fellow photographers.  It is important to try and stay positive as we will get through this.  If anything you can use the time to think, what future photography projects you aim to tackle, also tidy up your workspace, practice on that software you have hardly touched.

Anyway above all else, stay safe.

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Photography in Scotland Collection https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/infrared-photography-in-scotland-collection Hi Everyone

With the current situation as it is and most of my events cancelled, now is the time to look at other projects and keep our hopes up during a very difficult time both financially and emotionally.  As you all know I have been photographing infrared over the last few years and I recently compiled a collection of infrared photographs from Scotland.  Although my main source of income is through professional corporate and event photography mostly from Edinburgh but also throughout Scotland, I also conduct personal projects, in particular infrared photography and I am currently planning a book showcasing my infrared photos from various locations throughout the country.  I also find photography very therapeutic at times like this.  Photography in general can help you in many ways during stressful times.  If you want to see more, take a look at the collection of photos on the website.   It was very difficult choosing my favourites but I tried my best to keep it varied, with a mixture of colour and black and white images.  The other thing as photographers that we can do is to update our training during times like this.  There are a number of ways online and they don't all cost money.  Adobe also run a variety of training courses for members.  Also, I have a mountain of photography books to read and its always important to keep up to date with your social media.  Also, why don't you get out that film camera from the attic, you may re-discover the magic of film photography.

Anyway guys, chin-up.  Look after those who need it most.  All this will be over eventually.

Regards

Colin

Combining The Photographic Genre https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/combining-the-photographic-genre Hi All

 

Although it is acknowledged that we as photographer have a variety of specialisms, or maybe one or two, the best way to create a unique image is to think  with several photographic hats on.  As a corporate event photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I often find myself on a photoshoot for one purpose but also drawing on other disciplines.  I have often used infrared equipment for my architecture and event photography commissions around Edinburgh and one of the things I like about having a dual identity ie corporate event photography and fine art photography, is the ability to mix them both in, then present the client with an extra photo or two which they invariably love.  You are also able to use skills from one genre to the other and it gives you flexibility and a good USP.  For instance, on this photoshoot of the Union Canal in Edinburgh, I decided to add a few infrared photos and then to draw on my College project of puddle photography.  I have even used infrared for sports photography, landscape (often to create realistic black and white landscape images) and weddings.  In fact any outdoor commissions, I will usually try a bit of infrared.  So don't be constrained, switch the genre now and again.

until next time.

 

Kind Regards

The Outdoor Professional Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/the-outdoor-professional-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone 

we have had some pretty extreme weather recently and while I am a specialist conference and corporate photographer in Scotland, working mostly indoors during the week, my weekend work is largely outdoors, either sports photography or some infrared or landscape photography in or around Edinburgh.  So when you have stormy weather like the last couple of weekends you have to take your opportunities.  Timing is crucial and you have to be prepared to get cold and wet but when you catch it right it is worth it.

Recently, I managed some good infrared photos, with a very detailed sky which always helps.  Recently the motor sports event I covered still went ahead and although it is cold, it’s still fine.

In this weather you tend to work without a tripod, you need to wrap up well and be quick.  Use all your past experience, no messing around with the dials on your camera, your hands will be too cold.

Anyway, whatever you do just get our there, you may surprise yourself.

Until next time.

Different Uses for Infrared Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/3/different-uses-for-infrared-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

I have been shooting a lot of infrared photography in Scotland these days.  I am also half way through completing a manuscript for a book on infrared photography showcasing image in and around Scotland.  I thought I would look at a few myths of the genre.  Every type of photography has its cliched aspects and infrared is no different.  As a corporate event photographer in Scotland, people also have stereotypical ideas, particularly in relation to wedding photography and it is our job as photographers, to provide the public with an alternative modern view of photography.  In relation to infrared, I once had a client who loved my infrared work but was a bit wary of distributing it on the walls of his hotel, as it may have been too over the top with the white trees and weird spooky contrasting scenes.  Whilst this type of infrared photo can be created, the converted infrared camera can also be used to produce contrasty high dynamic range black and white photos that fit into a more conventional photographic genre. I particularly like using my infrared camera for this purpose. A converted infrared camera is after all, a very good specialist black and white camera - see what you think of the photo attached to this blog, only close inspection of the grass gives away that it is infrared.  Even colour infrared can be used in a realistic manner, depending on the filter you use, it can be a way of bringing out the blues in the sky and creating a nighttime effect.  Of course, I also like doing totally over the top infrared in both colour and black and white, but that's the subject of another blog.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photography Scotland Book https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/infrared-photography-scotland-book Hi Everyone

 

As you know I have been adding to my infrared photography in Scotland project, with a collection of images, which will be available as merchandise soon.  I am also in the process of completing a book on infrared photographs taken in Scotland and I will be negotiating with publishers.  This will be a book showcasing the images, with short descriptions of each photo and will include black and white and colour infrared.  It won’t be an instruction book,  although I will give some insight into how to. Instruct an infrared photo and the editing involved to form the final image.  A short description on how infrared photography can be applied to corporate photography commissions in Scotland will also be included in the book.  So watch this space for more information.   

 

All the best.

Why I am an Infrared Photographer in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/why-i-am-an-infrared-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

I have often been asked what got me into infrared and why I like it so much. You may be surprised by some of the reasons, so anyway here they are below:

 

1. I started shooting infrared in film as a student and always wanted to get back into it.  When converted digital cameras made it more accessible, I couldn't wait to return to the genre

2. You can shoot infrared in bright midday sunshine and still get dramatic results, none of this getting up at 5am for the best shots nonsense

3. Infrared is like film photography, you really don't know what the final result is going to be until you start editing

4. The final results take you to an enchanted place

5. There are no rules, you can go all whacky with the editing if you want to, or you can have a very good contrasty black and white photo with lots of structure

6. it's great fun and a little different from what is out there today, in an environment with millions of photos

7. The results make great fine art photos for exhibition purposes

8. It is a good extra project to have from the more conventional corporate and event photography commissions I do in Edinburgh and around Scotland, although I can also introduce it into my corporate work as an added extra for the client

9. It looks great on social media

10. It gives the world an insight into an entirely different genre of photography

So there you are, an some of the reasons why I am really into infrared photography

Kind Regards

Professional Conference Photography in Scotland a few Do's and Don'ts https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/professional-conference-photography-in-scotland-a-few-dos-and-don-ts Hi Everyone

 

With the Festive season well and truly over and the conference and event photography commissions starting to come in at venues in Edinburgh and Scotland, I thought this would be a good time to take a quick reflection, as a professional event photographer, on the do's and don'ts for conference photographers, so here we go:

Do's

1. Take only the equipment you will need, don't overload yourself with gear

2. Make sue you have all the timings right and the key shots the client wants

3. Be creative outwith the client requirements, they will thank you for it later

4. Use flash but not constantly, give the speakers and delegates some peace

5. Be helpful and responsive to the delegates and organisers, this is crucial, as it will likely effect whether or not you get booked again

Don'ts

1. Don't overdo the number of pictures of the lead speakers, give them some space and limit flash if possible

2. Don't use large lenses all the time, keep it small where possible, this should be more achievable with mirrorless cameras, as they have smaller lenses

3. Don't shove to the front all the time and get in the way of the conference, a good professional event photographer should hardly be noticed at all

4. Don't use the event as a means of selling your services and only give out business cards if asked for them

5. Dedicate yourself to the conference, keep a professional attitude, don't be seen on your phone all the time.  I now have a mirrorless Canon, which can transfer the images to my phone as a back-up.  if I use this facility, I make sure I let the client know what I am doing and the reasoning behind it

So, hope this helps. until next time.

Kind Regards

The Infrared Photography Collection - Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/the-infrared-photography-collection---scotland Hi Everyone

Having just published my collection of the top 15 infrared photos I have taken in Scotland, I have decided, as a break from my corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh and around Scotland, to pick one image and talk about it each week.  These will be quick blogs just to give you a flavour of the where, when and how behind each photo.

The image I am concentrating on today took at Dunbar Harbour about 2 years ago.  The clouds were looking good on this lunchtime in Dunbar, with a perfect amount of infrared light. A fishing boat had just moored, which helped make the composition interesting and just to add to the photo, a seal came in, hoping for some fish from the fisherman.  It was one of these photoshoots where it all went well and everything came together just at the right time.  I did it in black and white and colour infrared but I think the black and white one is best.  it is also one of these infrared photos where you can't really tell it was taken in infrared.  I sold a copy of this image and it also received a positive reaction on Instagram, especially from local East Lothian people.

Anyway, watch this space for more photos from the collection.

Kind Regards

Working Effectively as a Professional Photographer, Edinburgh Scotland with Limited Time https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/working-effectiley-as-a-professional-photographer-edinburgh-scotland-with-limited-time Hi Everyone

People often ask me what the most important aspects of being a professional photographer in Scotland are and the answer is varied, as there is more to it than just making sure you have quality unique images you can offer the commercial client or the fine art photo customer.  Whilst that is vital there are other aspects which often scare people away from the profession and that is not even including the financial side of things.  When I was in Edinburgh yesterday, the every day pressures of life kicked in.  I had to drive my daughter to diving practice and during this time I went and did the weekly shopping, I had 15 minutes left with my infrared camera on my own and the weather was perfect, what do I do.  I quickly went into Pollock Halls in Edinburgh, remembering that the foliage in the grounds was good, even in winter with fir trees and tropical plants, under time pressure I came up with some really good infrared photographs to add to my Infrared Photography in Scotland collection, quickly edited them at home and started to post on social media right away.  This made me realise one of the most important aspects of professional photography is the ability to operate quickly and effectively.  I learned this from 10 years of working in the newspaper industry when you had lots of jobs with limited time and I think it has helped me in my corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh, Scotland and also with wedding photography when capturing the moment is crucial.  now there will be times when you have all the time in the word to compose your photo etc, but this doesn't happen very often, especially in Scotland, where the weather often changes every few minutes and you have to act quickly.  So practice at how to operate effectively in short bursts within a limited timeframe, it will help your photography in the long term.

All the best

Sports Photography and the Football Fan https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/sports-photography-and-the-football-fan-photographer-edinburgh-scotland Hi Everyone

 

I was photographing a football match, or should I say soccer for our American friends, on Saturday at my local club in Dunbar.  Now one of the things I find about sports photography and other corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh or throughout Scotland, where you have a strong interest in the subject you are photographing, is how do you separate the professional aspect from the fan or the interested spectator, well you tend to be so focused (pardon the pun) on the subject matter, your professionalism wins over.  the desire to get that perfect photo, combined with the need to appear professional and impartial tends to be so strong that you are in concentration mode and you don't say or do anything daft. I have often been so determined to get a good goal photo that I have wanted the side playing my team to score so I can get a cracking sports photo.  There are exceptions to the above, when photographing my local team, I will cheer after they score (but only after I have that goal photo and celebration photo of course).

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Corporate Photography, Whisky Blending Event, Edinburgh, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/corporate-photography-whisky-blending-event-edinburgh-scotland Hi Everyone

 

Had a good day on Monday photographing a Whisky Blending event at the Nauticus Bar in leith for Douglas Laing, whisky blenders and bottlers.  As a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, I have been getting a wide range of commissioned work these days and this was one of the more interesting ones.  I have been to the Whisky Experience venue at the Castle in Edinburgh before but this event was held at the Nauticus Bar in Leith, a fantastic old oak bar with interesting decor.  Although I had a brief of photographing the participants with their whisky and few other still life photos, I was also able get creative with my gear, getting used to the touch screen on the Canon EOS R now, although I am still pretty annoyed at the hassle of having to send the photos to my phone as a back up because Canon in their wisdom, decided to only have a one card slot, still it's a great camera.

 

Hope you like the photos on the site, getting ready for some sports photography in East Lothian and more corporate conference photography around Scotland soon.

 

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Landscape Photography, East Lothian, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/landscape-photography-east-lothian-scotland Hi All

As I start a new year and begin preparations for corporate photography commissions coming up in Edinburgh, I managed a quick half hour of landscape photography on Sunday.  The light was OK, although no detail in clouds, which is something I prefer, but at the very least it was dry and good practice for long exposure effect photography.  When I moved to Dunbar 13 years ago, I was one of  a few photographers photographing the landscape at Belhaven Bridge, near Dunbar, I held a couple of exhibitions, tried new techniques and achieved success in promoting and selling my work, but when I arrived on Sunday, there were at least 8 photographers, with all the latest gear, I may add, all with tripods etc.  It made me realise just how things have changed in the last 10 years or so, photography is very popular now, you need to keep a step ahead of the competition.  It's a good thing but it also saturates the market and makes it difficult for the good work to shine through, with the many millions of photos on the internet, also it has reduced the ability of professional photographers to earn an income through stock photography.  It just means you have to find different ways to promote your product ie social media, word of mouth, networking etc.  For this reason, I will keep taking landscape photos but I will try and find new locations and infrared photography will be my main focus, as I still feel this is still a fairly unique area of work for Scotland.

Anyway better go.  Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Sports Photography East Lothian and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/sports-photography-east-lothian-and-scotland Hi All

My first photo job of the new year, apart from some infrared stock photos in East Lothian, I was primed and ready to photograph some junior football at Dunbar.  I have started using my Fuji XT2 and 100-400mm lens for outdoor sport.  It copes great with the low light, some issues with focusing but I can revert back to my Canon when the light improves.  I  love photographing at this time of the year.  Apart from the lack of light at night time, I like the freshness of it and as a professional photographer in Scotland, it has been over a month since I did a football photoshoot.  This was a junior game between Dunbar and Camelon.  It ended 0-0 but was still great to photograph.

It made me think of compiling a few tips for football sports photography and here they are below:

1. Dress accordingly, especially in the winter, find ways of keeping your hands warm, ie thin gloves, wear waterproofs etc

2. Take at least at 1/800 speed, even more if possible, to freeze the action

3. Try and keep concentration, especially when there is a possibility of a goal

4. Make sure you are standing in the correct position ie this depends on who you are covering the game for, if neutral then the half way line is best, if for one club, I like either behind the goals or near the corner flag

5. Don't forget the non-football action ie arguments between players, crowd reaction, celebrations etc

The above are just for starters, more later in the year.  So with the new year upon us, I am now looking forward to some corporate event and conference photography commissions in Edinburgh and around Scotland.  I will keep you posted.

All the best.

Kind Regards

Colin

Combining professional Photography with leisure Time https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/combining-professional-photography-with-leisure-time Hi All

One of the great things about being a professional photographer in Scotland, is that you can combine your professional photography skills with your day to day leisure time.  Often on family days out in East Lothian and beyond, I take my camera and combine trips to castles with some infrared photography.  As a fine art photographer, these photos can often have commercial value and it is enjoyable taking them.  You can also shoot family portraits, still life, urban photography etc, all of which can be added to your portfolio and used to boost your website presence and keep you "out there" from a social media point of view.  Many of my Instagram photos come from day trips with my family, or photos I have taken on the way home from somewhere.  I know we all have phones now, but the age old saying of "always carry your camera" still holds true and this is now easier with smaller mirrorless cameras.  Infrared photography can now be undertaken without a tripod, so the option for quick grab shots hand held is always there.

So, here is a photo taken with my infrared camera, depicting the view from Hailes Castle in East Lothian, Scotland.

Happy New Year.

Professional Photographers and the Winter Season https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/professional-photographers-and-the-winter-season Hi All

As a professional event photographer who regularly works in and around Edinburgh and Scotland, at this time of the year, I always reflect on the year, what was good, what needs to change etc.  This has been a good year for me with an abundance of business over the spring and summer period and also a good variety of professional photography commissions spread around Scotland, everything from sport, to award ceremonies, graduation events, birthday parties, conference photography and fine art infrared photography around Scotland.  In fact one of my challenges was fitting all the commissions into the summer and autumn period.  However, here is the seasonal problem facing most photographers. As mostly an outdoor event photographer, I could work twice during the spring and summer months, but often have periods of inactivity in the winter ie now.  Whilst this gives me the opportunity to spend time on my marketing, social media and my website, you still need finances to see you through all seasons and this is the challenge.  So one of my targets of the year will be to find other markets which generate income between November and March.  I already have plans for my infrared work next year, more presence online and I am sourcing the possibility of producing an "Infrared Photography in Scotland" book. I have purchased some new equipment to enhance my corporate, conference and event photography in Edinburgh and around Scotland.

The highlights of the year, well that's a difficult one but I think I have 2, the first was a golf photography commission to cover the Deer Park Masters in August, this was my first attempt at golf photography and I loved it.  Also, whilst I have been selling infrared photography prints depicting locations around Scotland, I received my first infrared photography commission from CrossReach, to photograph Charis House in Edinburgh, this provided me with total creative freedom to depict the garden area and the building in infrared.  All the client had to do was to choose their preferred print.  It worked out well and everyone was pleased with the print.

Anyway, have a great Christmas and New Year, can't wait to get going next year.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Professional Corporate Photography and Why We Need It https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/professional-corporate-photography-and-why-we-need-it In these days of mobile phones and accessible digital technology in cameras, why do we need corporate photography from commercial photographers in Scotland. Well for one they bring all their experience and expertise to enable capture of the best quality of images for your event. Timing is crucial in corporate and event photography. The ability to capture the decisive moment is paramount, this includes ensuring you have the correct vantage point, the right equipment for the location and the ability to react quickly to unpredictable situations. Modern professional cameras also deal effectively with very challenging lighting and a good professional photographer will know when artificial lighting is required and when it is appropriate to use it. You can’t constantly burst the flash at the delegates during conferences, you will need to ration your usage, otherwise you could risk disrupting the event and ruining the learning experience for the delegates. A good photographer will get the balance right. Then there is also composition, what should be in the frame and why, also when is it appropriate to get the essential shots and when can you add something that little bit different and creative. The variety of final photos provided to the client is also important, some close ups of the speakers, images of the delegates, networking images and key moments if special guests or politicians arrive at the event.

 

Then you also need to be able to respond quickly and effectively to unexpected requests for group shots, often large numbers of people in confined spaces, with very limited time.  Finally, there is the editing of hundreds of photos, often required immediately, or very soon after the event. The final photos should be what the client requested and more. They should tell a story and be of the highest quality. I hope this convinces you that it is worth employing a professional event photographer to cover your event.  You won’t be disappointed.

The Scotland Infrared Photography Collection https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/the-scotland-infrared-photography-collection Hi Everyone

 

I thought I would use this blog to update you on an exciting project I am about to embark on.  As you know, as a professional photographer operating in Scotland, one of my main areas of work is concerned with infrared photography and throughout the years I have been photographing colour and black and white infrared fairly diligently throughout Scotland.  I am about to put together a digital collection, which will encompass up to 15 of the best infrared images I have taken around Scotland. These will include images from the Highlands and Islands, my home county of East Lothian, Edinburgh, Glasgow and other locations from this great country.  The collection will be varied and will include different subject matter.  The aim will be to publicise the collection on Social Media, my websites and other publications.  Watch this space.  Even in this atrocious weather I have been able to get out and about shooting infrared and managed a shot of the new fantastic work of art - the Dunbar Bear, photo attached.   At this time of year in particular, I enjoy the contrast of my commercial conference and event photography in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, in comparison with my infrared, it keeps me creative.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Food Photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/food-photographer-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

I was out last week on a commercial photoshoot at Giancarlos in Tranent for Just Eat.  As a professional photographer operating in Scotland, it is always a pleasure to get a variety of different commissions.  Food photography is something I enjoy.  This particular commission has some strict guidelines/requirement from the client and this is fine but it got me thinking of a few tips for food photographers.  Here they are:

1. Use a tripod for consistency and sharpness, especially if shooting with natural light

2. Get creative with where you focus, this adds interest to the photo

3. Try and get the food to shine.  This can be achieved by spraying it, or lightly topping it with oil so that it glistens

4. Better brighter than darker or under-exposed where food photography is concerned, it makes the food more attractive

5. If photographing something fairly basic such as a hamburger shot side on to show the fillings

6. Where flash is used, always diffuse the light and only aim straight at the subject if you are using a fairly large softbox or light modifier, otherwise the light will be too harsh

7. Use props ie chopsticks, cutlery, salt pepper, herbs etc

8. Try and make the food look colourful and it must look very attractive to eat, sounds obvious but I have seen some food photos that put me of the menu

9. In some cases photograph 90 degrees above with drinks included to give the impression of a 3 or 4 course meal

10. Try some preparation shots, with chefs making the food, it can help to tell the story

 

Hope all that helps

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Christmas Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/christmas-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

With the festive season preparations in full swing, I thought I would look back on some of my Christmas photography commissions as a professional photographer in Edinburgh, East Lothian and throughout Scotland, particularly whilst working as a newspaper photographer in East Lothian and Midlothian.  Its largely a great time to photography people, due to the joy, costumes and general light shows you get at this time of year, but I thought I would look at some of the challenges for the Christmas photographer.  Here we go:

1. Photographing Christmas Light turn on celebrations can be challenging due to the weather and the crowds, make sure you are in the perfect spot when the lights are turned on - be assertive, otherwise you will get lost amongst the crowds and get poor photos.

2. Most outdoor Christmas photoshoots are in almost total darkness.  The lights themselves won't help overcome this, as exposing to the lights will only show the lights in the photos and not the people.  Use flash to get photos of people in the foreground, then take a tripod long exposure shot of the lights, preferably when there is still some detail in the sky, ie not at the darkest time of day.

3. At any Christmas event, photograph children, with the permission of their parents of course.  They look great in their costumes and their genuine enthusiasm for Christmas enhances any photo.

4. Try to capture facial expressions, always important, but even more so at this time of year.

5. If outdoors, prepare well for the weather.  You will probably be hanging about waiting on something to begin, so get well wrapped up.

Anyway, hope that helps you to create some magical event photography images.

Conference Photography Scotland - Tips for the Flexible World https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/conference-photography-scotland---tips-for-the-flexible-world Hi All

Now as we all know digital photography has changed the way we approach corporate photography commissions and as a professional specialist conference photographer operating in Edinburgh and around Scotland, it is vital to keep up with the times, particularly the changing expectations of today's clients.  Here are a few things to be aware of:

1.   Often conferences are based in multiple locations on the one day, so while you may need different equipment for different purposes, it is vital that you keep the gear down to a sensible level keeping you mobile

2. The length of the day is much longer, particularly for private sector photoshoots, so keep your energy up, make sure you keep well fed and watered (preferably by the client)

3. You will take more shots nowadays, gone are the days when you need to supply the client with a handful of shots, it will be hundreds now, so keep snapping and take some arty ones, even if they haven't asked for this, they will almost certainly like them

4. Make sure you are clear about the clients expectations before the start of the event, don't just assume its the same as an event you did recently, they are all different

5. Your personality is very important, you are not just a photographer in the background.  The days of the rude wedding and event photographer are over, be nice but be natural and enthusiastic, remember we are privileged to be doing a great job for a living

Anyway, that's all for now, hope it helps.

Infrared Photography and the Art of the Sky https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/infrared-photography-and-the-art-of-the-sky Hi All

 

This blog is really about 2 different issues involved in infrared photography.  The first one, as a professional photographer from Edinburgh, Scotland, I always ask myself, what exactly do I want to achieve as an end result for this photo, ie the pre-visualisation aspect of photography.  Now this is where infrared photography differs from other types of photography, in that the images look nothing like they do on the camera screen, its almost a bit like the film days when you had no idea what the final image would look like and pre-visualisation was vital.  However, the point I am trying to make in this case is sometimes when I shoot infrared I want a realistic black and white photograph and not a weird white tree shot or over the top colours and this is where infrared is fantastic, as the contrast, structure and dynamic range is excellent.  In this case I went up Arthur Seat in Edinburgh and shot mainly with the intention to get dramatic black and white images.  Let me know what you think, there is one attached to this blog and 3 on the website.  The other point I wanted to make was something I keep drilling on about and especially for black and white photography - its the importance of the sky and this photo wouldn't work without the cloud detail in the sky.  Clouds like this actually excite me.

Anyway, of to my final conference photography commission of the year later this week.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Photographic gear for photographers and the importance of testing yourself https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/photographic-gear-for-photographers-and-the-importance-of-testing-yourself Hi All

I have just purchased a Canon EOS R mirrorless camera which I think will be ideal for my conference photography commissions in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, particularly with the improved focusing and ISO performance and the ability to shoot silently, always useful for indoor event photographers.  However, I thought I would test it a bit at the weekend before using it at a corporate conference photography commission on Thursday this week.  As well as shooting indoors for a bit, I thought i would take it outside for some football photography.  I didn't buy the camera for this reason but I thought it was still worth it to test it outdoors.  As expected, it wasn't suitable for this purpose, however it is a great camera and I look forward to using it at corporate event photography commissions.  It also got me thinking that it is good to test ourselves with equipment that is less than ideal for the purpose, it gets you working harder and makes you think about how you can adapt to situations with limited equipment.  It was like this for me when I started as I simply couldn't afford more expensive gear, this improved my skills enabling me to adapt to different situations with one lens and to search if something wasn't right, for a solution with my existing gear, rather than just going out and buying something more modern and advanced.  This is especially true with lighting and flash systems, there is no need to keep buying more up to date gear, just go out and get to know your existing stuff better.  By the way, my recent purchase was a direct response to a need to shoot silently at events and also I am getting older and want to lighten the load on my back.

Anyway happy snapping.

Kind Regards

Colin

Conference Photography - How the Landscape is Changing for Corporate Photographers https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/conference-photography---how-the-landscape-is-changing-for-corporate-photographers Hi Everyone

As I approach the winter conference photography season with a conference photography commission in Edinburgh next week, I thought this would be a good time to reflect on the challenges and new issues facing conference and event photographers.  I have been photographing conferences around Scotland for over 15 years and it is an aspect of corporate event photography that I really enjoy.  As conferences are mainly held indoors - you may get the occasional outdoor group shot - the development and advances in digital camera equipment is very important for photographers involved in this line of work.  I have just purchased a Canon EOS R Mirrorless camera and I cant wait to start using it at conferences.  The improved ISO performance over the years has been fantastic for conference photographers, you cant always use flash and in some cases they wont allow flash at all, so you need this facility.  One of the reasons I am looking forward to using the EOS R, is the ability to shoot without the loud shutter noise you get from DSLRs.  This is vital in conferences as the constant shutter sound can annoy delegates.  Smaller cameras are starting to show equal performance with the large DSLRs and this will also make life easier for photographers.  I often attend events where some photographers still insist on using large lenses when there is no need.  Large gear can intimidate the delegates and there is also an increased risk you could whack one the delegates on the head with your your massive telephoto lens.  Wifi enablement can be very useful at conferences and often you are asked right away for images, this can be handy and prevents the need to carry a laptop.  The improved focusing and touch screen facilities in new equipment can also be very useful for corporate event photographers.  New lighting off camera flash and more portable equipment is also a boost for event photographers.  All this means of course that more is expected of us, so you may find yourself working harder now at an event, but this is all good, as there is more scope for creativity and in some cases our job is a bit easier due to the technological improvements.

Hope all this helps, happy snapping.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Making Time for Art for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/making-time-for-art-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

Every photographer is different and my time as a professional photographer in Scotland is largely divided between my corporate conference photography commissions in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland and outdoor events, mostly sports photography in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife.  So you can imagine that it is fairly seasonal to a certain extent, although I also photograph a number of conferences, award events and student graduation balls during the winter months.  There is however, a period between November and the end of February where things slow down a bit.  it is probably just as well as I can often work flat out in the spring and summer.  Whilst marketing, training and general networking can dominate these winter months in my case, I also ensure there is time for personal projects and the art of photography.  Indulging in your passion every now and again is essential for photographers.  This year, I plan to extend my infrared photography in Scotland project to try and include some new subjects not normally associated with infrared photography - watch this space.  I also want to re-visit my puddle photography in urban areas in Scotland , in addition to a Three City Triangle project encompassing Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, more details soon.  Whilst winter is challenging due to lack of light and poor weather, it can be a great time for photography due to lack of crowds, dramatic light and night photography. 

So, from next week, all will be clearer, but my advice to you is get outdoors and just go for it in the winter.  it will be worth it, I promise.

Kind Regards

Colin

Scrapyard Photography and the Importance of Photography Projects https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/scrapyard-photography-and-the-importance-of-photography-projects Hi All

As I finish a very busy period as a professional photographer in Scotland and head into a time when I may have a little bit of free time for a new photography fine art venture, I think this is a good time to reflect on the importance of starting a new project.  As a mainly conference and event photographer, usually at venues in Edinburgh and other parts of Scotland, I tend to base my projects on genres of photography entirely different from my day to day work.  I have in the past completed a number of project based on subjects including the following: scrapyard photos, infrared photography, puddle images and black and white urban photography.  Someone once said to me why not just rest when you are not busy or do something non-photographic but I think there are a number of reasons why a photography project is so important.  here they are below:

1. You can often make money from your projects, I have made a sizeable income from infrared photography and have also sold scrapyard images.  Many a quiet winter has been saved by sales of fine art work

2. You can make your project the subject of an exhibition, which can lead to sales and increase your profile

3. Projects keep you fresh

4. you can use the skills you have learned in your day to day corporate commissions ie I supply wedding clients with infrared photos, in addition to the main images they receive

5. It enables you to explore your creative and artistic side, which is what most of us photographers should be about and I think we need this kind of feedback to keep going

Anyway, hope this helps.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Urban Photography Edinburgh and Scotland - Tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/urban-photography-edinburgh-and-scotland---tips Hi Everyone

As a professional photographer working around Edinburgh, I often get asked for advice or to complete surveys for students and recently I was asked by a student at Napier University to complete a questionnaire relating to urban photography, particularly Edinburgh.  As a corporate event photographer working in and around Scotland, I enjoy the break from commissioned commercial work to add to my urban photography portfolio.  I also tend to double up and do some infrared photography in urban locations such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee to name a few.  I have also done some urban photography in Germany.

Anyway, as part of the questionnaire, I was asked for advice for urban photography, so here we go:

1. Try different angles, I do a lot of low angle on the ground shots, they work particularly well when puddles are involved

2. Check the weather forecast

3. Decide on whether you want people in the image ie and then plan the time of your trip accordingly

4. Travel light, so you can be mobile, mirrorless cameras are ideal, maybe just a small fisheye lens also

5. Try something different

6. A small tripod is useful, if not, then a gorillapod - make use of fences and railings if you are using an attachment device

7. Ignore people that give you funny looks.  It will be worth it if you really get that striking photo

8. Study past masters and Social Media.  instagram has some great urban images

9. Urban photography is just landscape photography in the city.  All the rules for landscape photography apply

10. You dont always need people for urban photos, check out my portfolio, I hardly ever shoot recognisable faces

Hope this helps.

Until next time.

Bungee Jumping - Event Photography Glasgow https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/bungee-jumping---event-photography-glasgow Hi Everyone

Just about to get my gear ready for the final bungee jumping photography event of the season, so I thought I would share a few tips on the do's and don'ts of bungee jumping event photography.  As a professional photographer operating in and around Scotland, I always feel privileged to photograph a variety of subjects.  Last week I was photographing a major conference in Edinburgh, whereas this weekend, I will be off to the Riverside Museum, Glasgow for some Bungee Jumping photography.  So what should we look out for when photographing people falling from the sky.  Here are a few do's and don'ts.

Do - 

Take plenty of waterproofs, you will be exposed and there probably wont be anywhere to hide

Make sure you have plenty lens cleaning cloths, you will be looking into the sky after all and your lens will get probably wet, especially in Scotland

A speed of about 640 or 800 should do it, your subject wont be moving too fast and that should be enough to freeze things

Try and capture the emotion on the face of the jumper before and after, as well as the jump

Pay attention and don't miss the jump - this can be difficult as you will have to crook your neck to wait on the jumper and some people will hesitate and take a while

Move your position, try and get right under the jumper and move round as they swing down towards you

Expose in manual, if you use auto exposure without any adjustments you will be exposing for the sky and not the jumper

Don't -

Underestimate the weather, especially in Scotland

Ignore safety issues ie not watching for the cage on its way down to the ground, or you could get crushed

Ignore exposure changes.  the light will change and exposure is one of the trickiest aspects of bungee jumping photography.  Make sure you check your photos regularly to see if the subject is correctly exposed

 

So, hope that helps, have a happy event photography day in Scotland.

Kind Regards

Colin

Key Aspects of Conference Photography in Edinburgh and around Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/key-aspects-of-conference-photography-in-edinburgh-and-around-scotland Hi All

After a very busy, but also enjoyable week photographing a 3 day conference for the Intercontinental Hotel Group in Edinburgh, i thought in this blog I would reflect a bit on the hidden aspects of conference photography ie some of the things you overlook.  As a professional conference and event photographer operating in Edinburgh, Glasgow and other parts of Scotland, I have learned a fair bit about conference photography and some of the main challenges are not necessarily related to technical photographic skills.  Modern conference events are a bit like weddings, you can't miss key moments of the day, you may also be covering evening dinner receptions, with dancers pipers etc, so make sure you are fully aware of the timings and to keep your energy up.  Most of the organisers will feed you, so make sure you don,t skip this, otherwise you will flag, especially if you have been up since 5am.  Try and persuade the venue to put the lights as high as they can tolerate, even though modern cameras are great in low light, darkness is still the enemy.  Make sure everything is pre-arranged ie your car should be fine, you should know the route, traffic etc and leave an hour earlier than you need to.  This is not an office job, lateness will not be accepted and you could be in deep trouble if you miss a key moment.  Think about any possible disasters ie have loads of charged batteries, extra lenses, lens cleaning clothes, flash etc, at least 2 of everything.  I know a few photographers who only have one camera at events, that would scare the hell out of me and to be honest, it is not very professional.

So happy conference photography shooting.

Until next time.

Conference and Infrared Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/conference-and-infrared-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As I approach one of my busiest ever spells as a professional corporate and event photographer in Edinburgh and Scotland, for once I had a weekend off and it was good to spend it with the family at a battle re-enactment event in Dunbar.  We went too early and had to leave before the battle but that's another story I wont bore you with but I did take my infrared camera and managed a few shots for something a bit different to add to my Infrared in Scotland project.  I have been selling the infrared images online and this has been a success but I am also in the process of finding a suitable retail outlet, more news on that front soon.  People in costume can often be good to depict in infrared and metallic objects such as swords and helmets can be shown in an entirely different way due to infrared light - see it's not just all about white trees you know.  I think there is no subject that is taboo where infrared photography is concerned and I plan to expand my range of subject matter soon.  In the meantime, here is a photo from the event.  Starting to get prepared for a 3 day conference in Edinburgh next week, really looking forward to this one, as it takes place at various venues throughout Edinburgh, including a couple of top class restaurants.  Overall, this will be one of my biggest conference events as an event photographer in Edinburgh, due to the duration of the event, cant wait.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Professional Infrared Photography Tips, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/professional-infrared-photography-tips-scotland Hi All

 

A short blog this week, before I embark on a busy period of motor sport photography and some corporate and event photography in Edinburgh.  At the weekend I had the privilege of doing some infrared photography in the Pentland Hills, Midlothian.  Now as you all know, you need sunshine for good infrared images and it was certainly sunny at the weekend, but almost more important than sunshine is clouds and detail.  To demonstrate, the attached image would be extremely boring without the wonderful detail in the sky - by the way I never use composite skies, preferring reality to a sky that is super glued to a photo.  Now my daughter Gina is also integral to this photo as she appears in the distance but it is the sky that makes it, whether in colour or black and white, the photo works due to the sky.  In fact in landscape photography in general, you need detail in the sky.  Everyone was wondering why I was so excited before I left the house, it was because I just sensed the sky was perfect for infrared photography.  it is one of the things as a professional landscape photographer in Scotland that I really like about this country, the changing weather, clouds and yes, you guessed it, detail in the sky.

So no moaning about our weather in Scotland please, it is great for photography.

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Something Different in Sports Photography by event photographer Edinburgh, Colin Wright https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/something-different-in-sports-photography-by-event-photographer-edinburgh-colin-wright Hi Everyone

I had a rare day off on saturday and a couple of hours to spare in Dunbar, so I took myself off to the Dunbar RFC v Penicuik rugby game.  it was just like old times, as a professional newspaper photographer, I used to photograph a lot of sport and events in and around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.  As always, I have been trying to do something a little different for my own personal projects.  Recently I did some infrared photography at a football match.  This time I decided to do some contrasty HDR images at the rugby match, including a few black and white images, utilising On One and Silver FX Pro software.  It took a little more time post processing, but well worth it, I think.  As a professional event and sports photographer
working in and around Edinburgh and Scotland, my philosophy is to keep trying new things - not easy in for professional photographers in Scotland - but still achievable.  Let me know what you think.  Dunbar won by the way.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Photography in Sunny Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/infrared-photography-in-sunny-edinburgh Hi All

 

As you have probably heard me explain before, infrared photography only works well with sunshine, even better if it is in the midday sun.  As you know most of us professional photographers in Edinburgh and around Scotland don't necessarily see much of the sun, although that's a bit of a myth to be honest, its just not that warm really.  Well on sunday I had the opportunity to take some infrared photos midday on a bright hot scorching day in Edinburgh.  Great you would say, but was it.  There was absolutely no cloud, or if there was, it was a tiny wee thing hardly anything you would notice. This can make infrared photos a bit boring, as blue sky with white cloud is the best, for detail in the sky.  Its the same with sunset shots in conventional photography, you want some cloud.  So what was I going to do.  Well you can make sure you find some prominent trees to fill the frame, also don't include much sky in the frame.  Colour infrared is also better in cloudless days, than black and white.  You can also fill the top half of your image with something to give it some interesting detail ie leaves from a tree in the foreground.  Also you can concentrate on a striking foreground, so the sky wont matter that much.  So it wasn't a bad photoshoot after all.  Let me know what you think of this shot taken at Dynamic Earth with the Scottish Parliament in the background.

 

Anyway, until next time.

Supercar Photography and the Scottish Weather https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/supercar-photography-and-the-scottish-weather Hi All

Today's blog is looking at the weather and how this can seriously affect the outdoor professional photographer around Scotland especially.  I love my job and while working as an corporate event photographer, when I am wandering around Edinburgh and the surrounding area, I tend to spend a lot of time outdoors and here are some of my key tips.  They may sound like commonsense, but its amazing the amount of times I have seen people in trouble by neglecting to take these things seriously.  So here they are, for what its worth:

1. Check the weather forecast and bring clothing accordingly, then also take clothes suitable for the opposite type of weather.  Yes, even in this day and age the forecast can be drastically wrong.

2. Take suntan lotion, even in the winter.

3. Take some towels to dry your gear with.

4. Get yourself the most expensive boots you can afford and they will last you a lifetime - this is the one thing you shouldn't try and save on.

5. Take a hat, sun stroke is not cool, I had it once after a supercar photoshoot.

6. Get some protective waterproof housing for your camera, nothing too complicated mind you, if you are fiddling with it too much, it won't work in the rain.

7. Use your car for cover, where possible - I even managed to do this at a golf tournament once.

Anyway that's all for now.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Photography at the Deer Park Masters Golf Tournament https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/photography-at-the-deer-park-masters-golf-tournament Hi Everyone

Just had a good couple of days photographing the Deer Park Masters annual PGA golf tournament in Livingston.  I really enjoyed it, although the weather did present us with some challenges, however for the professional sports photographer in Scotland, this can also provide you with some unique photography opportunities, the lone golfer picture attached demonstrates how bad the weather was at some point and play was abandoned not long after this point due to thunder and lightning.  However we had play for most of the 2 days and as a freelance event photographer operating in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I can now add golf to the list of sports that I enjoy photographing.  Here are the challenging aspects of photographing golf listed below:

1. Although a fantastic sport, it can be difficult to make it look interesting in photos, as the participants are not running or moving fast, so you have to keep thinking how to get creative.

2. It is difficult to get the ball in all shots and you shouldn't worry if you don't for every shot, it's good to include it if you can, so fast speeds when you can and take more shots of pitching and putting when it is easier to capture the ball.

3. As with all sports, positioning is the key, so get in the right place and keep moving if you are permitted.

4. The main thing when you are close to the players is shutter sound, so put it on silent if possible, and if you are close do not click the shutter until the ball has been hit, otherwise you could seriously end up in the bad books of the players.

5. Weather can be an issue for golf photographers, with little shelter available.  Trees are good, but not this week when we had some serious thunder storms.

The above just added to the challenge and it is a sport I love to photograph.  I even managed some sport infrared photos as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project.

Anyway, until next time

Sports Photography Scotland Tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/sports-photography-scotland-tips Hi All

 

An the eve of my 2 day event trip to Deer Park Country Club as one of 2 commissioned photographers at a PGA golf tournament, I thought this would be a good time to go through some do's and don'ts for sports photography.  One of the main things is to study the sport.  Although I have been working around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland as a professional freelance event photographer, I am also a sports fan and as a previous track athlete, tennis player and golfer, I have a good idea about these particular sports.  Like a lot of guys, I am also a big football fan.  There is no substitute for knowledge when it comes to the sports photographer and if you don't have it, them acquire it, watch clips, read up on the sports etc.  It would be difficult for a non golfer to photograph the sport for instance.  You need to know where to stand, when not to click the shutter etc.  One of the main issues in sport is to be able to anticipate what is going to happen next and have your camera move to that position in advance, this is particularly relevant in football and rugby photography.  Focus on the crowd sometimes, or the players celebrating, or an off the ball incident - don't just relax after you have caught the goal in football.  My best selling images have not been goals or dramatic action shots, they have been celebration shots - see attached.    Take most sports at a fairly fast shutter speed ie at least 1/800, unless you want to create motion through an intentional blur, then move the camera smoothly in line with the subject using a slower shutter speed - this is particularly useful in motor racing.  Try and get some close ups of the participants faces if your lens is long enough, emotion is a key aspect of sports photography. 

More tips for the professional sports photographer later, but for the moment, here is the final one - enjoy the day.  

 

Kind Regards

Holidays for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/holidays-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

Just back my holidays from the Isle of Mull.  As a professional photographer operating in and around Scotland, it is always a treat to have a vacation in Scotland.  As a landscape and infrared photographer, Scotland is one of the best locations in the world to visit and this time I also had the weather on my side.  As I was with my family, the opportunities for photography were pretty limited, along with the potential to visit a variety of locations, but I manged some good images, which I will be able to include in my art portfolio for future sales. When most people go on holiday, they are encouraged to forget their job for a bit and certainly the lack of email and internet was good for my soul.  However, it is a bit different for freelance photographers in Scotland, who are always on the lookout to add to their landscape portfolio and as we all love our job, it is no hardship to continue taking photos on holiday.  I tend to travel light on vacation, not using heavy gear and I don't get obsessed, as my kids really do come fist when I am on holiday, but I have a whole batch of infrared photos to work on.  I also must be one of the only professional photographers who exclusively photographs their children in infrared - I think this is maybe worth a book sometime.  Anyway I have a masters golf tournament to photograph next week at Deer Park Country Club, Livingston, near Edinburgh, very much looking forward to the photoshoot next week, also more supercars and some wedding photography in East Lothian.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Getting Started in Event Photography, Edinburgh and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/getting-started-in-event-photography-edinburgh-and-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As a professional event photographer working in and around Edinburgh and throughout the UK, this is a busy time of year, with sport, gala days and all sorts of events taking place.  While I seldom have any time these days to just pop along and take photos for fun at the weekend, event photography was a great way to start and I urge all amateur photographers to get themselves along to a local event as it is ideal practice.  Often these events can be attended free of charge, or if its a local junior football team, you can offer to give them photos for a priority position at the games.  Airshows are great events to attend with all sots of opportunities.  This was how I got a foothold in local newspaper photography in Edinburgh and Scotland, I was approached at a rugby event by a newspaper photography who asked me to contact them with my portfolio.  As I had been attending events for a few years, I had a good varied portfolio which is ideal for the type of photography required by newspapers.  Working for the press also enabled me to raise my profile locally and I was approached for private interior and wedding commissions.  This type of marketing is invaluable, even in these days of social media.  I do appreciate it is a bit more difficult nowadays with the surge in digital photography and there are probably more rules in relation to the taking of photographs, but its still worth a try and a great way to gain valuable experience and to experiment and find your photographic niche.

So out you get photographing, there is plenty on.

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Connect Gov Conference Edinburgh and Finding Extra Energy Doing Something You Love https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/connect-gov-conference-edinburgh-and-finding-extra-energy-doing-something-you-love Hi Everyone

 

Just finished an intensive 2 day photoshoot at a conference for Connect Gov at various locations in Edinburgh.  Sometimes as a professional photographer operating around cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee and other locations in Scotland and the North of England, one of the most difficult things can be getting to the location early with all your gear, parking etc.  These can be the things that break your back and this conference also had an 8.15am start and went on until 10pm at night, within various locations throughout Edinburgh.  This is all part of the job and my aim in this short blog is not to moan about it, but to delve into the wonder of the human body and its endless capabilities.  I love taking photographs and in these situations I seldom feel tired during the photoshoots and seem to find the energy to keep going with enthusiasm, often with very little sleep and lots of physical work too.  It never fails to amaze me how as humans we can find energy easily for the things we love.  I turned professional a bit later in my life and you would think this would make it more difficult, especially working as a professional photographer in and around a city like Edinburgh where you can never park, however I can give any of the youngsters a run for their money.  Ask me to work long hours in an office without much sleep, sitting at a desk, well that's a different story.  Attach is a photo from the Connect Gov conference.

Anyway, until next time.

Sports Awards Event Photography, Musselburgh Grammar, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/sports-awards-event-photography-musselburgh-grammar-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As a professional freelance event photographer working in and around Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, every now and again, you get to do a commission and when you can really identify with the project.  Earlier last week, I had one of these commissions at Musselburgh Grammar School, who were having their first Sports Awards Ceremony for the coaches and children.  I was well impressed with the overall organisation and the enthusiasm shown by the staff, particularly the PE Dept at the school.  The event had some impressive guests, including the main invited speaker Kieron Achara, basketball star.  It goes to show you that its not all about funding and all it takes is a few enthusiastic people to make things happen. Positive attitude and enthusiasm cant be bought and all our schools throughout Scotland should look at successful projects like this and try to replicate their success.  Well done to all and best of luck for future events.

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Photography and the New Art https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/infrared-photography-and-the-new-art Hi Everyone

 

Most professional freelance photographers in Edinburgh, Scotland or anywhere else for that matter, will have seasonal periods during the year when they are busy.  If you are a corporate event photographer in Scotland for instance, this will occur when everyone else starts to chill for the summer holidays, they go on vacation, attend lots of outdoor sports events etc.  This is just when I get my most busy.  I have lots of supercar photography, golf, a conference and later today, an award ceremony at a local grammar school.  It is however, always good to get some time to spend with the family and at the same time, indulge in my passion for infrared photography.  This time it was Belhaven Bay near Dunbar, so no trees, but that it not to say that it is not suitable for infrared photography, on the contrary, the clouds provided great contrast and the sun was shining bright.  It is a wonderful spot, so it is no hardship to photograph, just watch that sand in your camera and dont drop it.  i have lost 2 cameras to salt water in my time and the insurance company wont insure me for water damage any more, unless I pay a fortune.  So here we are at Belhaven Bay.  Hope you like the photo.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Rock Photography in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/rock-photography-in-edinburgh Hi All

 

A great day out photographing the budding young rock stars of tomorrow for the Edinburgh Rock Project.  Lots of performers of all ages and of the highest quality.  They even sang songs that I can remember.  This is the 4th concert I have covered and I enjoy it more each time I photograph the event.  It is definitely one of my favourite event photography commissions in Edinburgh of the year.  This year the lighting at Edinburgh College was particularly fantastic, which is a joy for all event photographers. I am also given creative freedom to get the shots as I please, with very little restrictions over my positioning, which is always a blessing for  As a professional corporate and event photographer, there is nothing to complain about a commission like this.  Hope to see you all at Christmas time.  Right, now where exactly is that old Queen vinyl that I bought in 1980.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Tourism and the Infrared Landscape Photographer Edinburgh, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/tourism-and-the-infrared-landscape-photographer-edinburgh-scotland Hi All

 

As a professional event and fine art photographer from Edinburgh who spends a lot of time photographing landscapes around Scotland, particularly infrared photography in and around Central Scotland and the Highlands, I have seen major changes affecting the landscape.  Although its a great thing we can all travel and have numerous holidays, I have definitely seen a deterioration in the landscape due to overloading tourism numbers and its something we all need to be aware of, particularly these days with increasing travel, cruises etc.  Sometimes I think that this can be highlighted event more through alternative methods of photography such as infrared.  The green grass areas appear white in infrared photography, thereby leaving the footpaths as a dark sinister walkway.  I have seen this particularly in Edinburgh and Skye.  Just to illustrate here is a photo taken from Arthur's Seat on Sunday, it gives the shot an arty feel in what is one of my favourite locations in Edinburgh.

 

Anyway, its just food for thought, over to the politicians.

 

Kind Regards

Event Photography Glasgow, Scotland - Bungee Jumping Photos, Do's and Dont's https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/event-photography-glasgow-scotland---bungee-jumping-photos-dos-and-dont-s Hi All

 

Something a bit different this time, with a blog on bungee jumping photography, following my trip to the Riverside Museum, Glasgow to provide the photography for UK Bungee at the weekend.  As a corporate event photographer operating in Scotland, these kind of commissions can be great fun and something different for sports and event photographers.  Although bungee jumping isn't a sport, you need the same skills to photograph it.  You need to be quick, catch the moment, try and get facial expressions and the position and angle are crucial.  Here are a few do's and dont's:

 

Do's

- Do make sure you are in the right position to catch the jumper, ie not right into the sun and underneath but not directly below, to give yourself some room to move and frame the subject

 - Try and get the facial expressions, this is pretty important

 - Equip for bad weather, remember there is no escape when you are looking up to the sky, keep a camera cloth in your hand and take your waterproofs

 - Capture all angles and move about after you have taken the first dive shots

 - Don't stop shooting after they have landed, the relief expression on their face can be a good one to catch

- Dont's

 - Don't forget about the cage when it lands, it could so easily land on your head if you are not careful

 - Don't chat to your pals just at that crucial moment, if you miss the very start of the jump, you are probably going to miss the best shots

 - Don't shoot at too slow a speed, usually 400-1000 is about right

 - Don't forget to compensate for the exposure if you are looking into a grey sky, manual is best

 - Don't forget to change your settings depending on the weather changes, this is Scotland after all

 

Hope that helps, some new bungee photographs will go on the site soon from the weekend, until then, here is one I did previously.

 

Kind Regards

Graduation Ball Photography - Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh - Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/graduation-ball-photography---voodoo-rooms-edinburgh---event-photography-edinburgh Hi Everyone

 

What a great evening at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh for the Graduation Ball for Heriot Watt Chemistry students on saturday.  I had already covered a previous annual ball event for this group of students and as a professional event photographer from Scotland, it's great to be asked back.  Your job as a freelancer is much easier when the people you photograph are relaxed in your presence and they also have the confidence you are going to do a good job and that was certainly the case with this event.  Making you feel welcome is an integral part of ensuring the event photography is a success.  I love photographing these graduation balls, you are photographing young educated people in their prime.  As they are young, they tend to be more receptive to candid/reportage photography, which is more my thing anyway.  As any corporate and event photographer will tell you, if you are pretty much given the creative freedom to achieve good results you tend to do far better, well at least I do anyway, there may however be, photographers who thrive on more of a structured routine.  So it was a good evening and I was able to take all type of shots.  Thought I would maybe even have a dance as well, or maybe not.  So thank you to Rachael and the gang at the graduation event last saturday.

 

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Corporate Sports and Infrared Photography Edinburgh and Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/corporate-sports-and-infrared-photography-edinburgh-and-lothian Hi All

 

This has been a hectic but enjoyable week, as a professional corporate photographer in and around Edinburgh.  First of all I have continued to take infrared photographs, as part of my infrared photographer in Scotland project.  On Thursday I had a really interesting corporate event commission for the Ras Al Khaimah Roadshow, a UAE nation promoting tourism to their beautiful country.  It was a great evening, held at Edinburgh Castle.  The weather was good and so was the crowd and I managed to get a good shot of a quest who had just won a prize of a holiday, photo attached.  This commission had everything, portrait shots, candid photography, architecture, landscape photography from Edinburgh Castle and interior photography at the venue.  The week ended with some Supercar photography at East Fortune on Saturday, not so lucky with the weather but a good day was had by all.  So there you have it, the varied life of a professional event photographer in Scotland.  Soon to come, a Graduation Ball, bungee jumpers and a sports award evening and I have been commissioned to photograph a Scottish PGA golf tournament at Deer Park Country Club in Livingston - can't wait for that one .

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Infrared Fine Art Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/infrared-fine-art-photography-edinburgh Hi All

Just as the weather is changing, I am using every opportunity to update my infrared photography in Scotland collection of photographs.  As a professional corporate and event photographer, with my main income generated from events and conferences, its good to have something totally unrelated to focus (pardon the pun) on.  I have three very big corporate photography commissions coming up, one of them at Edinburgh Castle for a corporate workshop event, so I am using the last few free days to shoot some infrared, especially since the weather seems to be better here than in the med, surprisingly enough.   Today I am going to look at specific qualities for infrared photographers and here are my tips:

1. The ability to pre-visualise.  Whilst this is true for all photography, it is particularly relevant for infrared photographers, as the image they see on camera is often very different to the final image, unless you are using a full spectrum converted camera with a red filter, but that's a story for another blog.  This tends to favour people who were brought up on film, as pre-visualising the scene was vital, as we never had the facility to check on the image on the back of the camera.

2. I think infrared photographers need to see things in an alternative universe ie to be able to visualise how the image will look in a mystical world.

3. You need to be very dedicated.  The weather and seasons make it very difficult to plan any infrared photoshoot, even more so than landscape photography.  For instance, even with the sun, I am not really that interested in shooting infrared unless I have some blue sky and clouds, which is why Scotland is a great country for infrared.

4. Always carry your camera with you, true for all types of photography, but very much so for infrared.

5. Study and understand infrared photography inside out.  There aren't many books but there is plenty of info on the net, especially from the companies that convert the cameras.

Anyway, that's it.  Hope that was helpful, happy shooting.

Kind Regards

Sports Event Photography Tips - Event Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/sports-event-photography-tips---event-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

As the outdoor sports and event photography season is in full swing, as a professional event and corporate photographer from Edinburgh, who is regularly involved in event and sports photography around Scotland, I am going to use this blog to provide some general tips on sports photography.  Whilst every sport has its own set of tips, there are some general rules and stipulations and here they are below:

1. Make sure you are in as good a position as you can get, this is the most important tip of the lot. if you are standing in the wrong place, you will get the wrong shot

2. Don't get in the way of the performers ie no flash. in golf don't click until the ball has been struck

3. You will need a long lens, but not as long as you may think ie up to 300mm or 400mm is ok for most sports

4. Try and tell a story, ie it is not always about action shots.  This will often involve using a shorter focal length, so its not always about long lenses.  One of my best sports shots involves the fans - see attached photo

5. Keep trying new angles, kneel down, tilt your camera etc

6. In most cases you will need to use a fast shutter speed, as least 500th, sometimes up to 2000th for fast action

7  Just to contradict this, try panning at a slower speed, for a creative blurred background and some motion effects

8. Learn the sport inside out, this will help your photography and positioning

9. Always prepare for bad weather

10. Take back up gear, but don't over burden yourself with equipment, especially if you are moving about

Hope that helps.

Anyway, until next time.

Food Photography East Lothian and Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/food-photography-east-lothian-and-edinburgh Hi All

As a professional freelance event and corporate photographer operating in Edinburgh, I like to keep my eye out for new challenges and different genres of photography and after a bit of a break, I am about to embark on some food photography in a week or two, so I thought it would be a good time to give you some top tips for food photography.  Although food photography can very complex, I have decided to keep it simple for this blog and will concentrate on basic photographic set-ups.

1. Try to use natural light and a reflector.  For instance in my Just Eat photoshoots, they don't want you to use flash, so I position the food at the best location using natural light, and or the internal tungsten lighting.  If you use studio flash keep it small an portable and try and use one light, you are often photographing in kitchens and there is not much room.

2. Take different angles.  Directly above lighting is always a good one, but take shots from all angles.

3. The cutlery, plates etc are also very important for authentic shots.

4. Make sure the plates/surface etc are spotless.

5. Try to get some steam showing with hot foods and pay attention to the layout of the food.

6. Use a macro lens for some of the shots to get that level of detail.

7. If time permits, you can cheat a little ie spray the fruit and veg to give it that shine.

8. Use a tripod, the slightest bit of camera shake will ruin a food shot.

9. Try and get some shots with people in them ie chef or diners enjoying the food.

10. Suggest that you eat the food afterwards, otherwise it is just going to get chucked out.  This one is just a bit of a joke but nevertheless it is a waste if nobody eats it.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Introducing Fine Art to Event Photography Commissions in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/introducing-fine-art-to-event-photography-commissions-in-scotland Hi All

 

As you may know the Supercar photography season is upon us and I recently photographed a very enjoyable two day event in Fife.  What I am going to talk about today, is the ability to mix genres in photography.  I do a lot of day to day event photography for supercars, in addition to weddings and corporate conference events in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.  I always keep an open mind, especially for outdoor commissions.  At all times I carry my infrared camera, usually the small Lumix.  If the sun comes out there will always be a quick opportunity for an infrared photo.  This also means I am approaching the infrared photography genre from a different point of view, a more unconventional angle for instance.  Infrared is not all about white or coloured trees.  I have taken a lot of infrared photos at supercar events and the outcome is a unique contrasty photograph of the cars, with that infrared look on the metallic car surfaces.  I have also taken my infrared camera to football games, with trips to the park with my children, on architecture photoshoots, the scope is endless.  You just need to keep an open mind and be aware that there are no limits.  Photography is about being different as much as it is about being very good.  As long as the sun shines and I am still alive, I will take infrared photos.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards.

Mixing Photographic Specialisms https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/mixing-photographic-specialisms Hi All

 

I will be getting my gear ready for another supercar motorsport photography event before friday.  As a professional photographer operating in a number of different specialist areas, I am often asked whether to specialise or to photograph a number of different genres.  I am a specialist event and corporate photographer, operating around Edinburgh, but I also sell fine art infrared photography prints and I photograph sport and weddings.  Now I never really intended to photograph so many different types of photographic subjects, it just kind of happened and the opportunity was presented to me and I went with the flow.  I am not really a studio photographer, preferring uncontrolled environment photography but if I was presented with the opportunity to do studio photography - who knows.  I never regarded myself as a motor sport photographer, but having photographed Supercar events for around 3 years now, i am regularly contacted by the operators of these events.  What you do tend to do is move toward areas you enjoy.  I love photographing conferences and fine art infrared and landscape and it is in these areas that I have most success and tend to gravitate towards.  At the same time it is OK to have a regular bread and butter income from an area of photography which is very different from your main specialism - hence the Supercars for me.  Of course you may also get the opportunity to mix two different genres, like in this infrared photograph I took at Fife Airport during a Supercar event.

 

Anyway, the message is just go with the flow.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Conferences and Event Photography Scotland - Top Ten Tips for the Modern Era https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/conferences-and-event-photography-scotland---top-ten-tips-for-in-the-modern-era Hi All

As a professional photographer operating around Edinburgh and the Lothian area, I am about to embark on the summer conference and event photography season in Edinburgh and Scotland and at this moment I thought it would be relevant to have a short reflection on how the photography at these events has changed since I first started to do them approximately 15 years ago.  Here is a list of areas I think have changed fairly dramatically since I started:

1. Camera equipment, especially digital has advanced considerably, less flash is required as most high level DSLRs can operate without flash indoors to a certain extent.

2. Nearly all location lighting now is wireless, with large battery packs for portrait shots on location.  Small flash systems on camera are also more powerful.

3. You are expected to do more for your money now, due to digital capabilities ie you may do candid images, speakers and formal portraits all in the one event.

4. Candid reportage photography is required more and more these days, thankfully, as it is my specialism.

5. There are more photographers operating on their own now, due to costs and day rates, which make it difficult to employ an assistant at an event.

6. There will inevitably be delegates and guests taking photos with their phones, in addition to you as a photographer and this is something you have to get used to.  Sometimes you can have a laugh with them with the phones.

7. The equipment is smaller and lighter, which is great for us event photographers, especially since the introduction of mirrorless equipment.

8. You need to process and deliver the images quicker nowadays, even on the day by wifi on some occasions.

9. Most clients, especially non-wedding photography want to receive the photos by digital transfer.

10. Social media is an integral part of displaying the images and promoting yourself.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards

Different Seasons for Professional Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/different-seasons-for-professional-photographers-in-scotland Hi All

 

As a professional commercial photographer working in Scotland, today I would like to reflect on how different seasons of the year effect the work of a professional photographer.  I suppose the answer to that question lies with the type of photography you do.  A studio or product photographer, for instance probably has fairly steady consistent work all year round, whereas an event photographer has to deal with hugely different genres and markets for their photography.  My infrared photography work is very seasonal.  Whilst it can be done in the winter, you need sunlight and for the more dramatic images, foliage is required, which tends to be absent after autumn.  Landscape photographers can shoot all year round but the images are vastly different and extreme weather can often prevent you from taking your time, especially shooting landscape photography in Scotland, with our unforgiving weather.  I am an event photographer, photographing mostly in Edinburgh, most of the conferences take place in the winter and they are indoors, in the spring and summer I am outdoors, photographing supercars, infrared and landscape, so you can see the different skills required, one needs attention to detail with flash, often studio lights, the other, in an uncontrolled environment, is wholly dependant on the weather.

 

So you are probably wondering what my point is and the main message is that most photographers are either controlled environment (ie studio, still life and the indoor aspect of weddings etc) whereas uncontrolled environment photographers (myself included) prefer the unpredictability of the light and landscape, the excitement of the storm etc.  A controlled environment photographer, if he/she is good should be able to determine in advance exactly the kind of light they want for the photoshoot.  Outdoor photographers, especially in Scotland, know that the weather can change by the minute, so we have very little control and we like it that way.

 

Anyway, its something to consider.  Until next time.

Infrared Photography at Leith and Other Parts of Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/infrared-photography-at-leith-and-other-parts-of-edinburgh Hi All

 

Today I am going to look at infrared photography and its uses, for slightly out of the ordinary images.  We all know about infrared photography when it comes to the classic white trees and dark skies look, but when else can we use it.  As a professional photographer out and about in Edinburgh and Scotland, I am always on the lookout for creative ways to use infrared photography.  I use it in my wedding images and the couples usually love it.  I also use it for photographing my children, mostly in black and white, when they are playing, but also in colour.  infrared photography can also be used to create a very contrasty black and white image, with high structure, which can then be passed of as a black and white photo.  Many of my fine art photography clients are unaware that the photos have been taken with a converted infrared photo.  The one attached for instance, is a contrasty infrared photograph taken at Leith Docks in Edinburgh.  I have also used infrared photography for sport - see my website at www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk and wildlife - you can get some really creative eyes photographing animals in infrared.  Metal also photogrpahs well in infrared, so that gives you lots of creative opportunities with cars and planes.  These are just some of the uses for infrared photography.  Oh and finally I can also use it in my professional commercial corporate photography commissions, particularly architechture.  So there are no limits, just get out there and experiment.

So until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Supercar and Event Photography Scotland and Beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/supercar-and-event-photography-scotland-and-beyond Hi All

Its the Supercar event photography season again in Scotland and I have just had 2 very enjoyable, if not very cold, days photographing supercars at East Fortune in East Lothian.  Since becoming a professional photographer operating around Scotland on a regular basis, I have taken on a wide range of work and motor sport photography is something I have been doing for almost 4 years now.  The other thing is that it gives me the opportunity to do some infrared photography with some amazing cars as the subject matter.  As an event photographer in Edinburgh and the Lothian area, I enjoy these photoshoots even in bad weather.  it is just another challenge.  As a mainly outdoor photographer, unless I am doing events such as conferences or graduation celebrations, a lot of my work is outdoors, so here are some outdoor photography tips

1. Protect your gear, make sure you have waterproof covers if you need to photograph in really heavy rain

2. Try an shoot from your car with the window open if its cold and wet, if possible

3. Allow for cold, hot and wet weather, as we all know it can change pretty suddenly in Scotland.  Bring clothes for all types of weather

4. Be careful, outdoor photography brings with it an element of risk ie cars, seriously bad weather etc

5. Take a charged phone in case you have any problems and oh also headphones for music if you are out for long periods of time

Anyway, that's all for now.  Until next time.

Kind Regards

Conference and Corporate Photographer Tips Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/conference-and-corporate-photographer-tips-scotland Hi All

 

A quick blog with some additional tips for conference photographers.  As a professional corporate event photographer out and about in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, I photograph a lot of conferences, in fact, this is my specialist area of photography.  In previous blogs, I have provided some tips for conference photography.  This time I will include a few unusual ones, but important never the less.  Here they are:

1. Dress appropriately.  I would say jeans and trainers are not appropriate for a conference photographer.  Just dress smartly, no need for a suit and tie.  Smart shoes and a nice shirt are fine, don't wear too many layers, you will get hot, as you are dashing about all day.

2. Always sound like you know what you are talking about, even if you don't.  Make sure you answer concisely, if asked by the organiser or delegates, don't say "I am not sure I will try that and see what happens"  I once heard a photographer say this, it didn't inspire confidence.

3. Once you have taken the photos, get out of the way and stay out of sight, the delegates are not there to see you.

4. By all means take some business cards, but don't tout for business during the conference, its not very professional.  You can give out cards if asked though.

5. Be careful with your gear.  You may have insurance but its not worth ruining your gear and be careful with the delegates.  I once dropped a flash and thankfully caught it before it landed on a delegates head.  No insurance will help you out in this case, you just wont be asked again.  So I am now very, very careful.

Hope that helps.

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

The Art of Realistic Black and White Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/the-art-of-realistic-black-and-white-infrared-photography Hi All

A quick blog from your ever intrepid professional event and landscape photographer from around Edinburgh.  A break from the conference and corporate photography in Scotland and time for some infrared photos from Portobello in Edinburgh.  Today I am going to talk about realistic infrared photos.  If I hadn't told you the attached photo was infrared photography, you would never have known.  Sometimes infrared photography, through using a converted camera, can be a good way of creating a very contrasty image with a high structure content to it.  This is partly because infrared highlights which ordinary cameras are unable to detect and all you have to do is to convert the image to black and white and up the contrast and structure and you have a really dynamic black and white photograph.  This means that infrared converted cameras can be very useful for landscape photography and while I like to do some whacky colour stuff, I also like realistic black and white images taken with an infrared converted camera.  Of course it depends on the filter you have in your converted infrared camera, although even some of the filters designed for colour infrared can also create good black and white images.  The best filter is a 720, which is not so good for colour infrared but great for black and white stuff.

Anyway, its goodbye from me until next time.  Some conference photography in Edinburgh next week and supercar motor sport at the weekend.

All the best.

Regards

Colin

Landscape and Fine Art Photography Sales and Graduation Ball Photography Scotland and UK https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/landscape-and-fine-art-photogrpahy-sales-scotland-and-uk Hi All

 

The infrared photograph season has started and I have been adding images to my Infrared Photography in Scotland collection.  In addition to my specialist area of event photography in Edinburgh and Scotland, I have been exhibiting and selling my fine art infrared images in Ocean Terminal and Red Bubble, a good way to promote your product to offer on a range of accessories. 

In a couple of weeks time I will have a conference photography commission in Edinburgh and coming up soon some graduation ceremony photography for Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.  I really enjoy the Graduation Balls, the energy of the events, combined with that youthful enthusiasm, make them great to photograph.  You are capturing people at their best.  There is an opportunity to photograph awards and prize giving, dancing, reportage candid images of people interacting and often formal couple shots using portable photography gear.

Anyway, until next year I will leave you with a photograph from the Graduation Ball from the Chemistry Students from Heriot Watt, held a few weeks ago.

 

Until next time.

Motorsport Photography Tips and Getting Ready for Weddings https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/motorsport-photography-tips-and-getting-ready-for-weddings Hi All

As some of you know, as a professional commercial photographer operating in and around Edinburgh, I also do motorsport photography in addition to my specialism of corporate conference photography in Scotland.  The season for motorsport photography has started and part of this is photographing the Supercar events in East Fortune, Edinburgh and Fife.  I also use this time to get some precious infrared Supercar photos at the event locations.  However, today, I thought I would share a few Supercar tips with you all.  So here they are:

1. This is the most important one, you must use a polarising filter, otherwise you will not be able to identify the drivers.  You may as well go  home without a polariser

2. Dress for bad weather, this is Scotland, you can’t take all the photos from your car, the best ones will be when you are more flexible and outdoors.  This also goes for the sun, hat and sun tan lotion are essential, especially if you are outdoors for as long as 9 hours

3. Try out different angles and positions, crouch, stand up, try different speeds etc.  You don’t want the client to get identical shots

4. Try some panning ie moving the camera and lens parallel with the subject, it creates a creative blurred background 

5. It may sound obvious but if you neglect it, this can be what pushes you over the edge, especially if you are out for long periods - take plenty of food and juice, water etc, you may not get a break and the refreshments if there are any are likely to be expensive and or poor.  Also and this is a must for me, headphones and music

Hope that helps

Until next time

Kind Regards

Colin

Conference Photography in Edinburgh 5 new Tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/conference-photography-in-edinburgh-5-new-tips Hi All

 

As the conference photography season is upon us for all professional corporate photographers in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share a few tips, shown below:

 

1. Get to know the main organiser as well as you can, before, during and after the event.  Learn their needs and preferences. It is this key person who will employ you in the future

 

2. Taylor your photos according to the needs of the company, ie check previous brochures, internet photos ets and ask them what they want.  Its no use photographing a lot of artistic black and white images if the organiser wants presenter shots in colour

 

3. To contradict what I just said, take risks, do something different, so you stand out from other photographers.  I like to offer some corporate infrared photos to my client as an added extra and they usually love it

 

4. I have said this again and again, but don't overdo I, back-off once you have your photos, give people space.  They may not re-employ you if they think you are a pest

 

5. Keep it simple when it comes to equipment.  You will likely only use 2 lenses, even 1 sometimes.  This also goes for flash modifiers, don't overdo the fancy equipment, find the best way and stick to it.  Also, it decreases the chances of losing stuff

 

That's all for now folks

 

Until next time

Infrared Photogrpahy in Scotland - More Tips by Professional Photographers - Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/infrared-photogrpahy-in-scotland---more-tips-by-professional-photographers Hi All

Great weather for infrared photography in Scotland last week.  Next week I have a conference photography commission in Glasgow, with the start of the motor sport photography season at the weekend in Fife.  As a professional photographer out and about in Scotland, its always good to get back into the sports photography.  What's not to love about photographing sport in Scotland.  However, this week we will concentrate on more infrared photography tips.  Some of the more left field ones this time, here they are below:

1. Watch out for the direction of light.  The position of the sun is important.  You need to keep checking your camera screen to see the intensity of light on the foliage.

2. Watch out for dark shaded areas.  Unlike normal photography, large shaded areas will appear totally dark, with little dynamic range if there is no sunlight on the area in question.

3. The opposite of this argument is that shadows appearing as stripes, or with a detailed shape can look very creative, see attached photo.

4.  Check your exposure and bracket.  Exposure can be very tricky in infrared.  Try over and under exposing, depending on the intensity and direction of light.

5. Watch out for flare ie bright white or purple and blue light, when you shoot into the sun, this is much worse in infrared than with normal photography.

Anyway, that's all folks, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Fine Art Photography - The Highland Cow project https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/infrared-fine-art-photography---the-highland-cow-project Hi All

 

I am about to embark on a new project, to showcase some of my infrared photography in Scotland photography.   Due to the success of the Highland Cow photos last year, I am now about to embark on a project to photograph Highland Cows in infrared.  The aim, in between photographing events and corporate conferences around Edinburgh and Scotland, will be to visit as many locations in Scotland and photograph the great Highland Cow with the backdrop of the fantastic landscape we have here in Scotland.  I will start at my favourite location of the Pentland Hills in Edinburgh, after the success of the Highland Cow in the snow photos last year, I took the opportunity of photographing highland cows in the snow at the Pentland Hills yesterday, you have to be quick, as it is pretty cold and also careful, these horns are pretty big and all it would take, is for the highland cow to move its head slightly and you could end up on the end of a horn.  So here is a photos from yesterday, the aim was to get as much detail and contrast in the image as possible and also to get as close as I could without injury.  As with all animal and wildlife photography, once the animals get used to you, they lose their fear.  I have even started naming them now, this one is called Gerald.

 

As an active Edinburgh photographer, at this time of year the aim is to find projects close by, to minimise travel time in poor weather and this project along with other infrared photography will be my aim over the next few months- keep watching the website.

 

My Highland Cow photos can also be purchased in the form of laptop skins, bags and in other formats from Red Bubble through the following link:

Anyway, until next time.

Conference Photography Do's and Dont's in Edinburgh and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/conference-photography-dos-and-dont-s-in-edinburgh-and-scotland Hi All

A quick blog today, looking at what not to do if you are a professional event photographer in Edinburgh or around Scotland, when you photograph conferences or any type of events.  Corporate photography can be enjoyable but also very challenging.  its a bit like wedding photography, in that you have to ensure you capture all the important moments and you must be able to get on well with people.  Just to concentrate on the negative for a change, here are a few dont's:

1. Don't keep photographing the same people constantly, when they clearly need some time to themselves

2. Do not always use flash if there is an option to shoot without it sometimes, its less irritating for the participants

3. Do not keep going all the time without stopping, both you and the participants need a breather sometime

4. Do not take underestimate preparation before the event ie batteries, cleaning cameras and lenses, checking it all works beforehand

5. Don't take the same type of shots all the time - keep changing angles etc during the event and try new things each time you are commissioned.  It is your duty as an artist and photographer to try and break new ground and do something original

That's all for now, some more professional corporate event photography tips soon, from your very own professional photographer out and about in Scotland

Kind Regards

I great night on saturday photographing the Annual Ball for Heriot Watt Chemistry students at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh.  It was a cheerful event, with everyone having a good time, I almost wished I could have joined in.  A Ceilidh band and a disco later, they even played some music from my era, it wasn't yesterday, I can tell you that.  As with all corporate and event photography commissions, I always feel as a professional photographer working in and around Edinburgh, that I perform well if I am made to feel welcome and if I can have a laugh with the participants and this was the case on saturday.  There were some real characters and they are always good to photograph.  The organisers also let me shoot reportage photography most of the night, which is great, as it is my strong point.  I also had a Godox off camera flash on a stand for posed pictures in the corner of the dance floor.  Then there are the dance shots, always enjoyable to photograph - some of the dance photos are also on my website.  I enjoy these kind of photoshoots, as they are perfect for capturing candid photography moments.  I tend to treat these events just like I would a corporate conference photography assignment in Edinburgh, photographing the key people, capturing moments and generally and this is the most important thing - making sure my photographs tell the story of the day.

 

I look out the window and the sun is shining, with some clouds, so I think it is time for some infrared photography in my home County of East Lothian.  Speak soon.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Urban and Fine Art Photography from Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/urban-photography-from-edinburgh Hi all

 

Taking advantage of a quiet week last week to get some stock and fine art photography from my home city of Edinburgh.  Most professional photographers have periods where they concentrate on certain areas of work and as a professional commercial photographer operating around Edinburgh, I try and get as much infrared and urban photography as possible, in addition to selling the work I completed in the summer.  This is sometimes more difficult than it sounds as the weather can be a bit rubbish at this time of the year in Scotland.  However on Friday it was perfect for infrared photography around 10am.  While infrared photographers rightly emphasise sun and trees for dramatic images, you can also add shadows to this equation and they were reflecting brilliantly on on the buildings on Friday, shadows in infrared can result in some dramatic shots, they also work well on grass.  The other aspect of Infrared Photography that is often overlooked, is that you can create realistic black and white images, that are not obviously infrared.  I have sold fine art images to hotels who wanted black and white photography on their walls.  Unless there are trees and grass present it isn’t always obvious they have been taken with an infrared converted camera.  Oh and another essential ingredient in the winter for infrared, beside sunlight, is an interesting sky - see the attached photo.

 

So as a professional photographer operating in Scotland, I also have some food photography in Edinburgh and a student event photography assignment at the Corn Echange in Edinburgh.

 

So, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Colin Wright

Corporate Photography Scotland in January and the Beginning of the Year https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/corporate-photography-scotland-in-january-and-the-beginning-of-the-year As a professional corporate photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, there are certain times of the year when things can be a bit slow on the event photography side of things and that time is now.  Just after New Year when people have less money and the companies are just getting back on their feet after the holidays, maybe planning their conference or events for March and April.  This can be a challenging time for photographers and all artists for that matter.  This should obviously be a good time for planning for the year ahead, what gear needs updating, which markets you are really going to aim for and how to use Social Media more effectively.  I also use it as a good time to update my training.  last week I went on an SEO course.  i will also be attending another course on Pintrest and Instagram and will be attending network events. 

However, I also use this as a time to sell and take stock of my infrared photography prints.  In addition to going out and about, when the sun is shining (I know it's not that often at this time of year), taking infrared photos as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project, I also try to market my infrared and landscape work, re-visit the retail outlets in Edinburgh to see what is selling, look at other ways to sell.  I now have an account with Red Bubble     https://www.redbubble.com/people/colinwrig?asc=u
and my prints are selling well - at least the Highland Cow photo is anyway, so its onwards and upwards, next step will be to move towards selling more infrared art prints to hotels, offices and restaurants.  So never stay still, keep moving and before I know it the conferences, wedding photography events in Scotland and the outdoor sport will start again and I will have grown different areas of by business.

 

So, until next time

 

All the best.

Best Gear for Corporate Photography in Edinburgh DSLR or Mirrorless https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/best-gear-for-corporate-photography-in-edinburgh FHi All

 

As we are now into the new year, it is time to set the budget for new gear.  I need to replace my main camera for corporate and conference photography assignments in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.  I already have my infrared photography needs sorted, using high end Nikon gear.  I have dabbled in mirrorless, using Lumix, which I love for infrared and Fuji, which I really like for urban photography and landscape, but to be honest, I don’t see myself switching to Fuji for my corporate and conference and event photography, it is just not there when it comes to low light photography and focusing.  Also sport just doesn’t work well enough due to focussing issues.  

So I am opting for a Canon 5D Mark 4.  This is a upgrade on my Mark 3, with the added bonus of touch screen focussing, a first for me with a DSLR.  All good for the start of the year with 3 Just Eat photoshoot commissions and a graduation event this month.  Looking forward to it.  So until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Christmas Blog from professional corporate and event Edinburgh, Colin Wright https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/12/christmas-blog-from-professional-corporate-and-event-edinburgh-colin-wright Hi All

 

This is my Christmas blog.  I just had a great conference with NHS Education for Scotland at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh with the Health Improvement Team at NES.  A great day was had by all with some hilarious presentations from the students who graduated.  Although as a professional photographer operating around Scotland, the main aim is always to get great corporate conference photos for the client.  i find that this is made easier if you almost join in with the proceedings on the day.  I also do this with sport and wedding photography.  I immerse myself in the event, almost becoming a guest and this helps me take even better photos.  You have to remember why you are there of course and don't overdo the jokes, keep them clean.  It's no coincidence that my best wedding photos are from two weddings of my friends, when I was also a guest, enjoying all the festivities, being immersed in the day helped my photography.

 

Anyway, I thought I would leave you with an infrared photo, because in my opinion infrared photography reminds me of Christmas with the white trees.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Rock Project Concert Edinburgh College, by Corporate Event Photographer Edinburgh Colin Wright https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/12/rock-project-concert-edinburgh-college-by-corporate-event-photographer-colin-wright Hi All

 

A great day was had by all at Edinburgh College on sunday for the Christmas Rock Project concert, bringing together budding young rock stars from Edinburgh, North Berwick, Livingston and Dunfermline.   Lots of great recognisable songs, especially good to hear Lithiam by Nirvana, one my favourites.  As a professional event photographer from Edinburgh, this is one of my most enjoyable music photography commissions in Edinburgh.  The joy on the faces of the children is there for all to see.  Its a great idea and this year my own boy Lukas was also featured, so it was special for me.  There are different age groups, with the children playing electric guitar, drums or singing.   As an event photographer, this is the kind of photoshoots you love, due to the lighting, smoke machines and expressions on the participants faces.  My job is to make them all look like cool rock stars and I hope I achieved that.

 

Anyway, cant wait until next summer, I will leave you with the attached photo in the meantime.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Diversification in Modern Photography for Corporate Photographers in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/12/diversification-in-modern-photography-for-corporate-photographers-in-scotland Hi All

Today I am going to talk for a little bit on the importance of diversification for photographers.  Pre digital, it was often said that photographers should specialise in one area, ie become an expert and be well known for portraits, weddings etc.  As a professional photographer operating in and around Edinburgh, I am always on the look out for new types of work.  I also don't think you can do absolutely everything, I don't do studio work for instance, but I do think you can vary it a Little.  I am a specialist corporate event photographer, operating around Edinburgh and Scotland but I also sell fine art infrared photographs. Here are my reasons for diversification:

1. Doing different types of photography improves the range of skills you have ie using different lenses, indoors and outdoors, different types of clients - it all adds up to more experience.

2. When you do a wedding for instance, I think it helps if you have some sport experience, you can deal with crucial moments and improvise, architecture and portrait photography are both useful skills for weddings and so is landscape photography and conference photography, all these things help you to deal with different situations and help you to improvise.  I also offer infrared photography to my wedding customers, which can be a unique selling point.

3. It is a very competitive market, you may feel it getting tight in one particular genre, therefor the ability to rely on other areas of photography can help.  I sell infrared photos in Edinburgh and online, which gives me an income to compensate for the loss of outdoor events in the winter.

4. Varying the type of photography you do keeps you fresh and excited about new challenges.

5. Your portfolio will look better and more varied.

Anyway, that's all for today.  Some music photography in Edinburgh at the weekend, with conference event photography in Edinburgh next week and a bit of food photography in Edinburgh also.

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Sports Photography and Corporate Photographer out and about in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/sports-photography-and-corporate-photographer-out-and-about-in-edinburgh Hi All

 

I was covering a junior football game in Dunbar yesterday, well some of it at least, the usual stormy winter weather and Dunbar lost, at least they were losing with 5 minutes to go.  Never mind, its been a while and it was great to get back into some sports photography in East Lothian.  Wet weather is all about trying to keep your gear dry, is it water sealed, is it worth risking it, if you are not getting paid, best to go indoors and wait.  I have seen people out in all kinds of weather, when it is not a paid commission, not worth risking your £2k camera.  Its only last year I lost a camera to a wave in Dunbar, now I am mega careful, that and the fact that after 2 accidents by the sea, I cant get water damage insurance, it does tend to effect your behaviour.  Anyway, onto more important things.  I have a couple of interesting event photography commissions in Edinburgh coming up, first of all a children's rock concert, run by the Rock Project.  Then, a conference for NHS Education for Scotland and some wedding photography in East Lothian just after Christmas.  Meanwhile, I am preparing infrared framed prints for sale at Christmas, in addition to working on my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com.  Its coming along nicely, take a look and tell me what you think.

 

Anyway better go and dry off my gear.

 

Until next time.

Corporate Event Photoshoots and Infrared Photography, both Indoors and Outdoors https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/corporate-event-photoshoots-and-infrared-photography-both-indoors-and-outdoors Hi All

Another day, another week. Its that time of year when professional photographers in Scotland turn their attention to more indoor photoshoots.  Normally I do a lot of outdoor photography events, bungee jumps, motor sport, football, and of course my infrared photography around Edinburgh and Scotland.  So what do I do when the light goes and it gets colder?.  Well actually I get pretty busy.  I prepare and re-evaluate my objectives and goals, especially my equipment.  What new gear will I need for the coming conference photography season in Edinburgh.  How can I upgrade my outdoor gear, given the likely event of a busy spring and summer weekend photoshoots next year and finally I start to think of how to sell my infrared work.  It is important that every outdoor landscape and fine art photoshoot is taken as part of an overall strategy.  This year I have been aiming to shoot high resolution photos, with a view to selling fine art infrared mounted and framed photographs to businesses and organisations, for them to display as high end fine art images.  I am also going for the Christmas market, with mounted infrared photos for sale at outlets in Edinburgh or through this website.  But most of all, I am looking forward to some corporate conference photography in Edinburgh and Glasgow and not getting soaked and having the wind blowing at me all he time outdoors.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photography for Christmas https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/infrared-photography-for-christmas Hi Everyone

 

With Christmas approaching some people start to wind down, but not this professional photographer from Edinburgh, I will have some corporate conference photography in Edinburgh, Wedding photography in East Lothian and a rock music photography concert in Edinburgh, but the main focus, if you pardon the pun, in today's blog is to let you all know about my infrared photography fine art images which are currently on sale at the Dark Room, in Ocean Terminal, in Edinburgh, or through my website at www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk.  I am now using a Nikon D800 high resolution camera for my infrared work, in addition to my trusty old Lumix.  There are black and white and colour infrared prints or downloads fore sale, some traditional looking black and white images and some surreal colour stuff, whatever you prefer.  The photos were taken in East Lothian, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Argyll, the Isle of Skye and Germany, in addition to other locations you may recognise.

 

This brings me to the second part of the blog, my new website, which is now online at www.edinburghphotographer.com.  It features my corporate photography and my infrared and fine art images and will eventually be my main website.  So take a look and be part of the infrared photography in Scotland revival.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

I Motor Sport Photography and Conference Event Photography Edinburgh and Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/motor-sport-photography-and-conference-event-photography Hi All

 

A busy week of photography for this professional photographer 

in and around Edinburgh, some corporate conference photography in Edinburgh 

and Glasgow ending in a Supercar motor sport photoshoot in East

Fortune.  So I have decided to do some Tips for photographing Supercars and Motor sport.

1. Use a monopod, this will enable you to use a longer

lens at a slower speed and also protect your weary arms.

2.  Experiment with angles and composition, tilt the camera, move around etc

3.  Protect yourself, always wear a luminous vest on track 

and don’t stand too close.  Believe me it’s not worth it.

4.   It’s not always the longest lens that you use and watch 

for shots when the cars aren’t moving, remember you should always aim to tell a story with 

photography.

5.  Experiment with speed, to create blur effects, movement etc  Don’t always totally freeze

the action.

Thats it for this week.  A PR photography shoot in Glasgow next week with more 

conference photography in Scotland in the horizon.

 

Until next time.

Corporate Conference Photography Edinburgh and More https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/10/corporate-conference-photography-edinburgh-and-more Hi All

Another busy week as the infrared photography in Scotland slows down a bit with reduced light and less trees to photograph, I have been doing some supercar motorsport photography and the event conference photography season is in full swing in both Edinburgh and Glasgow.  This week, we will be looking at more tips for conference photographers.  As a professional corporate photographer working around Scotland, I am always aiming to progress my conference photography images.  Last time we looked at some basic tips for conference photography.  Now I am going to suggest some less obvious ones, which I have detailed below:

1. Take enough equipment to enable you to photograph in all kinds of light.  You may think you know the venue and the light but what if you are asked to go into a small dark room to photograph a portrait, it has happened to me before.  Don't over stock your camera bag but be prepared

 

2. Improvise.  You may have a fair amount of gear but you cant overdo it, due to carrying restrictions and space, make use of white walls for headshots, lean your camera on a chair for longer exposure if there is no room for tripods etc

 

3. Become an expert with one lens and specialise in it for conferences and events.  You will likely only use 2 lenses throughout the day, say a 28-80mm and  a 70-200mm for instance

 

4.  Make sure you get the shots, but don't be too intrusive.  Try not to always use flash.  take a few shots at the beginning and the end of a presentation, then back off.  You don't want delegates or speakers to complain, or you may not be hired again

 

5.  Be friendly obliging and cheerful.  it may sound obvious but I have been to events with miserable and inflexible photographers, don't be one of them.  Nothing should be a problem, but you can't be in two places at one, make sure you get the priority shots specified by the event co-ordinator.

 

Hope all this helps.  So happy conference shooting.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Bungee Jumping and Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/10/bungee-jumping-and-event-photography-edinburgh Hi All

Just starting to recover from a busy weekend of event

photography in Glasgow with the bungee jumpers.  It is one of

my favourite photoshoots, as you can capture a wide

range if emotions ie fear, joy and relief.  As a professional 

photographer in Scotland, it’s all about getting that shot and

bungee jumping gives you that opportunity.  Here are my tips for 

bungee jumping photos:

1  Over expose slightly for the skies, especially if

they are not dark blue

2   Switch to manual exposure for consistency 

3    Allow for bad weather ie lens cloth etc.  You will

be pointing your camera up to the sky

4   Move your position as much as possible to capture 

the subject at all angles

This week I have some corporate conference photography 

in Edinburgh followed by some Supercar photography.  In the meantime, I 

will leave you with an infrared photo from East Lothian.

 

Anyway, until next time

 

Kind Regards

After a pretty busy weekend with wedding photography in East Lothian and a bit of conference photography in Glasgow, I had another corporate photography assignment in Edinburgh last Thursday.  As I continue to emphasise repeatedly in my blogs, I think, as a professional photographer in and around the Edinburgh area, that variety is crucial for photographers.  Thursday was certainly a bit different with a team event for the Renewable Energy company Baywa.  It started with indoor team exercises and finished with a treck around Edinburgh where the participants had to find there way to certain landmarks around the city, after this, they then had to complete a task.  I won't go into detail about the tasks, let's just say they were livened up considerably by some of the characters on the teams.   The bottom line is I had a great time photographing the event and I found new energy I didn't know I had.  A photo is attached.  Some sports event photography coming up with bungee jumpers and supercars soon.  The infrared season is slowing down with the light and recent weather, so this has given me a chance to work on my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, more news to come soon on the progress of the new site.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Autumn wedding photography and conference event photographic commissions https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/10/autumn-wedding-photography-and-conference-event-photographic-commissions Hi All

 

Although the light has been going recently, for a wedding photographer around Scotland, this has been a really busy time for me, with a big wedding photography commission in East Lothian on saturday, followed by the NHS Education for Scotland conference photography in Glasgow on sunday, one finished late saturday, the other started very early sunday, but I survived and both days went really well.  It never fails to amaze me how less tired you get when you are doing something you enjoy, lots of energy and the usual hyper active photographer on both days, mind you I did manage a glass of wine or two on my return on sunday night.  The weather was great for the wedding at the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club and I was indoors for the conference photography in Glasgow, while it was raining outside.  The Hilton Hotel was the venue, staff were great and its a perfect location for conference photography, because as all event photographers know, when indoors, its all about light.  Cameras have improved dramatically in low light recently but they cant work miracles and often you still require flash.

 

The wedding was most enjoyable, Linzi and Michael were great and with Linzi having a permanently beaming happy smile all day, it made my job a lot easier, photo attached.  I also had the opportunity to do some infrared wedding photography, as part of the service and a few of these photos have been added to my website, infrared photography and cars go really well and classic cars are a great way to display infrared work.

 

I also have another event photography commission coming up in Edinburgh this thursday, some bunjee jumping event photography, supercars and lots more, so thankfully no signs of a quiet start to the winter

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Autumn Weddings in East Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/10/autumn-weddings-in-east-lothian Hi All

Just had a fantastic wedding at the weekend.  As a wedding photographer in Scotland, you cant expect warm weather at this time of the year, but you can at least hope for some dry weather and sunshine if possible, also we are getting near that time of the year when the leaves on the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour, a must for all landscape and weddings photographers.  I just photographed a wonderful wedding at the weekend for Gemma and Craig at Ravelston House, Musselburgh and although it was pretty cold, it never rained and we got some fantastic wedding photos.  As a professional event photographer carrying out assignments around Edinburgh and Central Scotland, I just love the opportunity to take candid shots.  Whilst I will always take a number of formal posed images, my main aim is to circulate amongst the bride and groom and the guests and just capture these special moments.  Here are a few tips for reportage photography:

1.     Establish a relationship with the guests, have a laugh, get to know them, this will make it easier to take candid photos.

2.     Always keep alert to situations, that time when you want to chill out and relax and put your camera down may be the best candid shot 

3.     Shoot in colour but be aware of light which will look good in black and white format

4.     Children are great candid subject for wedding and event photography

5.     Watch out for these emotional moments

6.     You can always crop, so don't lose a photo just because there are some distracting objects or people in the foreground

More tips soon, another wedding photography assignment in East Lothian at the weekend, together with a corporate conference photography assignment in Glasgow for the NHS Education for Scotland.

So, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Colin

Supercars and Weddings all in a Days Work for a Professional Photographer https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/supercars-and-weddings-all-in-a-days-work-for-a-professional-photographer Hi All

Just finished some Supercar photography at East Fortune, a great day with cold but pretty good weather.  As a professional photographer in and around Edinburgh, the outdoor days are drawing to a close and I have some conferences and internal photography commissions to look forward too.  Still doing some infrared photography, although this is a bit limited at the moment with the light failing but there are always opportunities for infrared photography in Scotland and the UK, even when the trees fall.

I thought I would introduce a Tips for the Day for conference and event photography, starting today.  Here are the first 3.

 

1.   Preparation, is almost as important as the photoshoot, charge batteries, prepare all your gear, two of everything, sort out your travel arrangements and here is the best bit of advice - imagine the scenarios where things can go wrong and what action will you take.  ie car breaks down etc.

 

2.    Get to know the venue, for lighting, vantage points for shooting, where you can leave your gear.

 

3.    Plan out in advance the shots you will take and the timing ie which lens will you use and when.  Think about these decisions in advance.

 

That's all for now, more in a week or two.

 

Until next time.  All the best

Wedding Photographer Scotland and Beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/wedding-photographer-scotland-and-beyond Hi All

Another busy week, with a good bit of variety to photograph, including some interior photography in Innerwick, near Dunbar, East Lothian, some preparation for a wedding photography assignment in East Lothian and more infrared photography in Scotland, with my Nikon D800.  The great thing about the Nikon, will be the ability to produce high resolution images which will be ideal for my next infrared photography exhibition and will also produce large bespoke fine art framed photography for businesses and hotels etc.  As a professional photographer in Scotland I am always on the lookout for photographic and business opportunities and capturing the fine art infrared market is one of my main long term aims.  This week I was able to fully utilise the environment, particularly midweek, where the location, in the forest near Foxlake at Dunbar, combined with the strong sunlight, along with blue sky and cloud, proving to be ideal to infrared photography.   In the forthcoming week, I also plan, weather permitted, to take some infrared shots at the two weddings I will photograph in the coming weeks and I will start the photographic month of October with a conference photography commission in Glasgow, looking forward to it.  This week will see me photographing infrared, PR and newspaper photography and the Supercars at East Fortune at the weekend.

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Construction Site, Infrared and Motor Sport Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/construction-site-infrared-and-motor-sport-photography Hi All

Another one of these brilliantly varied weeks as

a professional photographer in Scotland, with a photographic

commission shooting at the St James development construction 

site in Edinburgh, very interesting and one of these subjects that most photographers

love to shoot, lots of creative opportunities and I get to

look like Bob the Builder.  Later on in the week more infrared 

photography, with my new Scottish infrared site at www. edinburghphotographer.com looking good.

Finally, some motor sport photography at the weekend.

Later on next week, some event and conference photography and wedding photography in Edinburgh.

Phew, it’s all go.

Until next time

Kind Regards

Colin

Football Team Photographs, Motor Sport Photography and Infrared Capture https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/9/football-team-photographs-motor-sport-photography-and-infrared-capture Hi All

 

A busy week ahead.  After an enjoyable commission photographing North Berwick Youth Football team last week.  I am off to Edinburgh for some construction site photography, looking forward to that and hoping for some creative opportunities, then a conference photography commission in Glasgow mid-week and finishing with some motor sport photography at the weekend.  Variety, that's what keeps us going.  I truly believe that whilst you can and specialise to a certain extent and I am a professional photographer from Edinburgh specialising in conference and event photography in Scotland and infrared fine art sales, it is always good to broaden your skills creatively, trying out genres outwith your comfort zone and testing yourself with new equipment.  This reminds me, I am now into the swing of obtaining some ultra high resolution photos from my Nikon D800 in infrared.  The leap in quality is beginning to show and I have been using the camera on a regular basis now.  Keep a look out for my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, showcasing my infrared, landscape and fine art work.  New additions will appear on the site each week.

 

So, until next time, I am off to get my hard hat on for the construction site commission.

 

All the best

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Fine Art and More Event Photography in Edinburgh at the Fringe https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/8/infrared-fine-art-and-more-event-photography-in-edinburgh-at-the-fringe Hi Everyone

Although its only August, it kind of feels in Scotland that the summer is coming to an end, but never mind, what a cracking summer for infrared photography.  Also as a good few weeks event photography at the Edinburgh Festival in Edinburgh comes to an end.  I have a had some great photocalls this year that I will remember for a long time, also with the opportunity to shoot some infrared at the Festival.  two things I will talk about on this blog, the first is, what kind of weather makes a good infrared photo.  Well, you do need a good degree of sunshine, dull overcast days are no use, there will be no reflected sunlight and the shots will be grey and meaningless.  I also think you benefit from some dramatic cloud, to create contrast and drama in the photo, hence the reason why I like Scotland, a shower is usually not that far a way.  These constant sunshine and blue skies without cloud that you get in the med are not as interesting for infrared.  light also reflects on foliage, ie trees, grass etc.  The detail you get in metal objects such as cars and planes is ideal for infrared also.  So that's just a short summary. The attached infrared photo from Edinburgh shows the cloud theory put into affect.

The next bit of news is my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, As an active professional photographer from Edinburgh, I am excited to inform everyone that I am re-launching this site in September, with an entirely new layout and lots of articles and blogs, it will be dedicated to fine art, infrared and landscape photography, with some urban images from Scotland and Europe added to the mix.  More news of this soon.  The site is currently at https://info694734.wixsite.com/mysite, for on a temporary basis before launch.

Finally, a busy time coming up, with a football club photoshoot at North Berwick, a conference event photography commission in Edinburgh and some construction site photography the following week.

Anyway, until next time.

All the best.

Kind Regards

Colin

Event Photographer Edinburgh About Town at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/8/event-photographer-edinburgh-about-town-at-the-edinburgh-fringe-festival Hi Everyone

 

Another interesting photoshoot at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for a Polish Theatre company for the performance of Carmen Funebre at Pleasance at the EICC at the weekend.  A wonderful gripping performance full of emotion and action for that matter, I wish I could dress up in a scary outfit on stilts, very athletic and moving.  As a professional photographer in Scotland, it is always a real pleasure to photograph theses events, especially at a venue such as the EICC, where I am usually working on a conference photography commission.  The event was outdoors and at night, so no infrared photography opportunities.  Luckily it didnt rain, the lighting was very challenging for photographers, but at least you were up close with the performers (I nearly had a stilt leg crush my hand).  Lots of fire, tears and action and the crowd loved it.  Its been a good year for me so far photographing events at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, hope I have more opportunities in the final week.

Anyway, until next time, I better prepare for a conference event photography commission in Glasgow. 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Supercars and Infrared Event Photography all in one Day https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/8/supercars-and-infrared-event-photography-all-in-one-day Hi Everyone

 

I was photographing a Supercar event at the weekend and whilst it can be long hours and hard work, it is really fairly enjoyable and the team I work with are a good bunch.  Now, whilst I was there to do motor sports photography, as a professional photographer from Edinburgh, I am always on the lookout for infrared photography opportunities and on Saturday in particular, the cloud formation was outstanding, so I decided to take a few infrared photos from my vantage point in the middle of nowhere.  There were also some opportunities to take a few shots of the cars.  I try to do this with every outdoor commission I have, I offer the infrared photography to the clients and they always love the results.  Unfortunately I can't offer the infrared service for my indoor Edinburgh conference photography clients, I do plan, however to include it in many of my event photography assignments in Scotland and architecture photography commissions and I could do a corporate photography group photo outdoors.  I have also included it in my wedding photography, but as you can imagine, I have to pre warn clients that it is all weather dependent, it has been great this summer but not today, it's. chucking it down.  But who knows, the sky is the limit, I have done some infrared football photography, Festival Fringe Performers, Portraits, motor sport, the list is endless

Anyway, until next time, I will leave you with a photo from the weekend.

 

Kind Regards

Event Photography at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/8/event-photography-at-the-edinburgh-fringe-festival Hi Everyone

 

Its that time of the year again, where professional photographers living in Edinburgh have great opportunities to get some good stock event event photography images from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, or just as a means of practicing your craft.  I love it, but I must admit is becoming harder by the year due to the crowds and the number of photographers.  Nowadays more people have digital cameras and many have really expensive gear and I am not just talking about the professionals here.  I have noticed with the increasing numbers some do's and dont's and here is my opinion for what it is worth.  It is a free country and professional photographers done have more priority than other photographers, unless they have been hired by the photographer and only then should they be able to prioritise their position.  No matter how hard you want a photo, you have no given right to shove to the front, there are other photographers and people watching, especially children.   Don't keep asking them to pose, the performers will do this if they want to.  If you have taken loads of photos, offer to send them copies and get an email address and the final one and this one never fails to amaze me every year - try not to use long intimidating lenses, there is no space and it intimidates the performers.  Nowadays there are alternatives and mostly we aren't shooting in low light.  OK so that my grump for the day.  So whats on this week, more corporate event photography in Edinburgh, a headshot photography commission in Glasgow and I will be trying out my new Nikon D800 in infrared, photo attached, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project.

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photography Edinburgh and Beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/7/infrared-photography-edinburgh-and-beyond Hi Everyone

What weather, wow.  This time of the year is usually quiet for conference photography in Edinburgh, and other corporate photoshoots, due to the holiday season, so I tend to do other stuff.  I was photographing a motor sport event at the weekend, which was good fun, but I have decided to talk about infrared photography.  I went to Edinburgh on friday, on what I felt was the hottest day in the city I can remember, although there may have been hotter ones, I am getting older.  This type of heat and bright sunshine does not lend itself to good photography normally, but for infrared, it is ideal.  The stronger the sun the better and if it is closer to midday, even better, so friday was ideal.  I also went a bit daft on the post processing for one or two of the shots.  Infrared photography can be a bit like photography on drugs, especially the colour stuff.  So I hope you enjoy the photos I have added to my site, one of them is attached to this blog.  of course, you can also keep it fairly conventional in black and white, which gives you a fairly contrasty image, one that is very difficult to achieve with normal black and white photography.   The photos are from the Festival Wheel at the centre of Edinburgh and the Scott Monument, scene of a scary engagement photoshoot I had last year.

Anyway, a busy week awaits, with some corporate headshots in Glasgow, followed by wedding photography in East Lothian at the weekend.

See you soon.

All the best

Kind Regards

Colin

Infrared Photography in Argyll and the Western Islands, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/7/infrared-photography-in-argyll-and-the-western-islands-scotland Infrared Photography in Oban, Argyll and Corporate Photography Scotland

Although I have just returned from a short holiday in Argyll in Scotland, I still have a lot to talk about.  Again a wide variety of photography in the last two weeks or so, ranging from the Supercars at East Fortune and Ingliston, near Edinburgh, to a corporate photoshoot for Mears Care Group in East Lothian, but I thought I would talk briefly about some infrared photos I took in the Isle of Kerrera, just of Oban in Argyll.  I didnt have a great deal of time for photography but managed a few shots on a walk with the family.  As a professional photographer working around Scotland, one of the most interesting subjects in infrared is abandoned vehicles and wrecked cars, also old buildings and boats, both metal and wood can look fairly striking in infrared.  the last time I went to the island I concentrated on the old wooden boat wreck but this time I thought I would vary it a bit.  No point in photographing the same thing over and over.  I spotted this old jeep and I thought it would make a good subject amongst the fern and grass.  Nothing in this photos was set up, this is the way it was, which is a personal preference of mine when it comes to landscape and photography in general, I much prefer uncontrolled environment images, even for weddings and other events.  So, let me know what you think.

Now that I am back to work, its more infrared photography, helped by this amazing weather we have been getting recently, followed buy a corporate photography event in Edinburgh and some food photography around Scotland.

So until next time.

All the best.

Kind Regards

Colin

Wedding Photography at Haddington in Blistering Sunshine https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/7/wedding-photography-at-haddington-in-blistering-sunshine A wonderful day photographing for the wedding of Ryan and Loren at Haddington at the weekend.  The meal and excellent service was at the Waterside in Haddington, followed by a fantastic reception at the Maitlandfield Hotel.  Weather was great and Ryan and Loren were just fantastic to photograph.  As a wedding photographer, from Edinburgh, I am often asked about the most crucial aspects of photographing a wedding and obviously one of them is the weather.  Whilst nowone wants rain on their big day, the photographer doesn't really want bright sunshine midday either, due to the high contrast, squinting of the eyes and lens flare.  This made me think about the most important aspects of wedding photography and I have made a top 5, although there are hundreds more:

1)     Be prepared, make sure all your gear is fully charged and working, and that you have batteries back up case one of your cameras pack in (its not impossible, especially in rain).  Allow for the unthinkable happening, cause it probably will one day, ie car breaking down, someone nicking your camera, losing memory cards.  Try and relax a bit the day before, you will need all the energy you can get.

2)     Get to know the couple, the kind of people they are and act appropriately with their guests, this doesn't necessarily mean you have to be boring and stiff, try and relax and have a laugh with them

3)     Be prepared top take all kinds of photographs, no matter what type of photographer you are.  I am a reportage photographer from Edinburgh, but I still need to know how to take formal posed shots.

4)     Take chances and try new things, don't just stick to your formulae each wedding.  I now try and introduce some infrared photography to my weddings.  I convert to black and white, use low angles etc.

5)     In a way this is the most important one.  I also adopt it when photographing events and conferences throughout Scotland and I think it is crucial for all event photographers.  Whilst you must remain professional at all time, try and get into the flow of the event and almost become part of it.  Although you are not a guest, you will take better photos if you feel part of the crowd.

Anyway, until next time.  Some supercar photography at the weekend, followed by a corporate event photoshoot in Edinburgh and some more infrared photography in East Lothian.

All the best.

Great Gig at the Rock Project Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/6/great-gig-at-the-rock-project-edinburgh As a professional photographer based near Edinburgh, this is the kind of commission most event photographers love, a bit of music photography involving young enthusiastic performers. A fantastic day out at the Roxy in Edinburgh last weekend for the Summer concert for the Rock Project, Edinburgh. Lots of creative photography opportunities, with some great young performers, ages ranging from approximately 8 to 17 years old, belting out some classic rock numbers, including "Zombie" by the Cranberries.  Interesting variety of colour and black and white photography from different vantage points, resulting in some wonderful images for the parents and performers to keep, before their kids become successful rock stars of the future, or just something cool to hang on your wall in the house.

Everyone, including the photographer, went home on a high, can't wait until the Christmas concert.

 

All the best, until next time

Music and Corporate Photogrpahy Edinburgh and Maybe a bit of Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/6/music-and-corporate-photogrpahy-edinburgh-and-maybe-a-bit-of-infrared-photography Hi All

 

A good week to be a professional photographer in Edinburgh, taking some infrared photography around the city, with the week ending in a music photography commission in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Rock Project, a great little music school for children, culminating in a summer rock concert in Edinburgh.  Photographing children at music concerts is both great fun and challenging.  They can be nervous, but the pride and joy they get from performing can be great to capture.  These kind of photoshoots can be challenging due to the lack of space and light and you have to strike a balance between getting good shots and pestering the performers and the audience.  This was a good day though and I will post some shots later once they have been approved by the client.  This week sees some infrared photography, hopefully on Wednesday at the Kelpies in Falkirk (infrared photo attached featured in international website this week) and a headshot photography commission in Edinburgh for NHS Education for Scotland.  I have the weekend free, but generally that means I will take photos of some sort during that time.  I also have a conference photography commission in Glasgow the following week and more supercar photography, with wedding photography in Haddington, East Lothian at the start of July, so its all happening.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Supercar Photography and Event and Corporate Photography edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/6/supercar-photography-and-event-and-corporate-photography-edinburgh Hi All

 

A good weekend photographing Supercars at East Fortune, just outside Edinburgh, with mixed weather.  A bit jaded just now, but recovering from an enjoyable 3 day photoshoot.  I will also be doing some corporate conference photography in Edinburgh later on in the week and possibly some food photography in Newcastle.  The weather is also pretty cool for infrared photography in Scotland, with plenty of trees and I will always take the opportunity to get as many shots as possible.  Saturday also sees me photographing a youth concert in Edinburgh for the Rock Project, really enjoyed this last year and looking forward to doing some music photography in Edinburgh.  As an Edinburgh photographer, its always good to get plenty of variety of work, which as we all know is the spice of life.  A photo is attached of the Supercars.  Now, back to the World Cup, which I missed at the weekend.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

All the best.

Infrared and Corporate Photography in Edinburgh and Beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/6/infrared-and-corporate-photography-in-edinburgh-and-beyond Hi All

 

I good week, with a corporate headshot photography commission in Edinburgh and a lot of infrared photoshoots.  This was one of my best weeks for infrared photography, with two of my photos being featured by the two main international infrared groups, although both photos were taken from the same location at Aberlady Bay in East Lothian, they were from different days, which goes to show the benefit of returning to the location to perfect the image.  Also the photos chosen did not depict the main attraction, the bridge at Aberlady, which emphasises the benefit of just looking around you, away from the crowds ie to do the opposite of everyone else.  The week ahead will be busy, with a food photoshoot on Thursday in Fife and some sports photography just outside Edinburgh at East Fortune.  I will also be doing infrared photography, with a view to holding an infrared photography exhibition in Edinburgh soon and finally, I have a conference photography commission in Edinburgh.

 

So until next time, remember don't neglect your camera for the world cup.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photography Scotland and More Corporate Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/5/infrared-photography-scotland-and-more-corporate-event-photography-edinburgh Hi All

 

A busy week and a good one for infrared photography, I managed to combine my food photography commissions in Lothian with some infrared photography to boost my Infrared Photography in Scotland project, with photos of the bridges at South Queensferry, photograph attached and the bridge at Aberlady.  Finishing off with some landscape photography Scotland with some infrared highland cow photos in the Pentlands, near Edinburgh, although I managed to lose my favourite hat, still it was worth the sacrifice. 

This week will see me going to Edinburgh for corporate headshot photos and finishing with some vintage car photos, weather permitted I will hopefully get them in infrared.  I also have some wedding photography in East Lothian coming up and more motor sport photography soon, with a couple of conference event photography commissions in Edinburgh, its all happening just now.  We are hitting the peak time for infrared photography, with lots of daylight and sun, the trees are also starting to look good, remember, we want trees and sun (with some clouds) the rest is up to the photographer, in relation to the composition and you have even more creative scope with colour infrared.  So hopefully it will be a good infrared photography summer.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

As a professional photographer based near Edinburgh, I keep emphasising that one of the reasons I love this job is the variety and this week has been another case in point.  I have just finished photographing a Supercar photo event at Ingliston, Edinburgh at the weekend, great weather and a good day.  I will be doing some food photography this week near Edinburgh, with some corporate headshot photos in Edinburgh in the near future on the horizon and I have been continuing with my infrared photos, to boost my infrared photography in Scotland project, even trying some infrared sports photography with some wakeboarding.  I was pleased to see one of my images accepted by the Creative Infrared Group (the photos can be viewed in Instagram, just type in Creativeir)This is a worldwide infrared specialist organisation and it is always an honour to have a photograph accepted, the one chosen is attached to this blog and was taken near Foxlake in a forest in East Lothian.  I have a corporate event photography conference next week in Edinburgh and also some music photography coming up soon, so its all go.

 

Anyway, until next time

Bungee Jumping Glasgow, Infrared Photography and Corporate Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/5/bungee-jumping-glasgow-infrared-and-corporate-photography-edinburgh Hi All

As a professional photographer from Scotland, this was a busy week again, starting with some conference event photography in Edinburgh, landscape photography in Scotland and great weather to do more and more infrared photos, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  The week finished with a long but very enjoyable day photographing bungee jumpers at the Riverside Transport Museum in Glasgow, great weather and a good crowd.  If I ever doubt my dedication to photography then Saturday proved my commitment, or rather obsession.  I left Dunbar about 6am, the jumpers went on until 7.30pm, I had half an hour for lunch, but during this time I took some infrared photos of the Clyde at the Riverside Museum.  After finishing and a long drive home, there was a sunset at Belhaven in Dunbar, so I stopped and walked to the coastline and took some landscape photos before getting home exhausted my 10pm.  Mad or dedicated, you decide, a normal person would probably have rested in the half hour lunch.

 

This week, more supercars at the weekend, some food photography Edinburgh and meeting clients to discuss their wedding photography in East Lothian, hope the weather holds out.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Hi All

 

The sun is finally shining, great time to be a professional photographer in Scotland, so I have been out there photographing infrared images in Edinburgh and East Lothian, to boost my infrared in Scotland photography project.  Also I was honoured to receive a phone call from the organiser of the Lammmermuir Festival, who will be using one of my landscape photos of Belhaven Bay, just outside Dunbar.  This Festival held in September is wonderful cultural event in the East Lothian and Scottish calendar for that matter, representing a wide range of theatre, music and arts, looking forward to it.  Also some bunjee jumping photography in Glasgow at the weekend, cant wait and some corporate event conference photography in Edinburgh next week.  I have also been updating my urban street photography stock images out and about in Scotland and hope to get them on the website as soon as possible, some new ones from Edinburgh taken on Friday.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate Conference Event Photography Edinburgh, Wakeboarding, Infrared and Supercars https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/5/corporate-conference-photography-wakeboarding-infrared-and-supercars Hi All

 

Probably my busiest 5 days of the year as a professional commercial photographer in Edinburgh, with a corporate event photography commission in Edinburgh on Thursday and Friday with NHS Education for Scotland, some infrared photography in East Lothian, followed by some wakeboarding sport photography and finishing with a Supercar event.  hence the reason for the late blog.  Attached is a car photo from a recent event, I decided to convert to black and white and give it a kind of grainy film look about it, what do you think?

 

I am busy editing all this work and hope to have a wee rest at the weekend, but photographers never really rest do they.  I always carry a camera with me and although this is not such a big deal since mobile phones were invented, it still gives me the edge over the mobile phone photos, I hope, sorry I don't care how the high the megapixel count is, they just aren't as good as real cameras, especially when you decide to print, or when objects are moving, or low light photography.  More infrared photography soon, some infrared photography in East Lothian and bungee jumping photos in Glasgow. - watch this space.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate Photography Edinburgh, Infrared Photography and some Sport https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/4/corporate-photography-edinburgh-infrared-photography-and-some-sport Hi All

This is the start of what will be a busy week.  My infrared photography is selling well and plans will soon be made to convert a Nikon D800 into infrared, with a view to have poster sized enlargements of my infrared images, to further enhance my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  The reason I am delaying the conversion, is I want to try out the Nikon D800 at a conference photography commission in Edinburgh for NHS Education for Scotland on Thursday and Friday of this week.  As a professional event photographer in Scotland, you have to be on the look out to try new gear, techniques and ways of working, in order to move forward.  Although I am mainly a Canon user, I also use Fuji and Panasonic Lumix equipment and used to be a Nikon user.  In fact I have been tempted by Nikon recently for my infrared work and may start considering them for other commissions.

 

Enough of my waffle, busy end to the week with some sports photography and say hello if you see me with my infrared camera, as the weather is pretty good for it these days.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Motor Sport and Corporate Photography Edinburgh and Infrared Photography Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/4/motor-sport-and-corporate-photography-edinburgh-and-infrared-photography-scotland Hi All

 

A busy weekend photographing motor sport at Ingliston Edinburgh, photos to follow in due course.  I have also had the opportunity to get some infrared photography photography in East Lothian, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  I purchased a high resolution Nikon D800 camera, which I will get converted in due course, to enable poster sized fine art infrared landscape prints in infrared from various locations around Scotland - watch this space.  Other than that, I have been doing some wakeboarding photography at Foxlake, the attached infrared image is from the Foxlake Advertures facility near Dunbar and what a great place it is too, my daughter is hooked on wakeboarding, so I will be driving her there lots in the near future - as for me, I am a bit long in the tooth for wakeboarding, the younger me would have loved it though.  I am also getting all prepared for a corporate event photography two day conference in Edinburgh next week.  As a commercial professional event photographer in Scotland, this is one of my biggest commissions of the year and I always look forward to it.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Music Photography Scotland and Finally Some Infrared Photography in East Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/4/music-photography-scotland-and-finally-some-infrared-photography-in-east-lothian Hi All

 

Another busy week with some sports photography at the weekend followed by a very enjoyable music photography commission in Dunbar, Scotland on Sunday, with Setting Sons. A great day and an opportunity to participate in a genre of photography that I love.  Music photography is great fun and with Grahame Smith being a well established photographer with a good reputation for high quality wedding photography, he was happy to give me full creative control, a photo attached.  Good to hear the band will be playing again in August this year.

I have a new conference photography Edinburgh commission in a couple of weeks time, at the NHS Education for Scotland Medical conference in Edinburgh.  This is usually a great event photography commission and as a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, one that I enjoy.  I know the staff at NHS Education for Scotland well, they are a great bunch and it assists me when taking the photos.  This week has also meant some fresh opportunities to take some infrared photography, to enhance my Infrared Photography in Scotland project, up at Traprain Law again, one of my favourite places.

Anyway, until next time

Kind Regards

Supercar Event Photography Event Photography and the Infrared Photography Season https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/supercar-event-photography-event-photography-and-the-infrared-photography-season Hi All

 

I had a good weekend with some sports photography at East Fortune on Saturday and Sunday.  It was lovely and sunny but very cold and I think I managed to get sunburnt and frost bite all at the same time, however no rain and that is the main thing.  Looking forward to more events throughout the year.  This is also the start of the landscape and infrared photography season, giving me the chance to add to my infrared photography in Scotland Project.  As a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, I also have a lot going on with some conference photography in Scotland and some music photography at the weekend.  As a professional photographer in Scotland, it's always good to get a wide range of work, it keeps you on your toes and broadens your experience.  Although I don't have a studio, I still operate indoors and outdoors and my work is most enjoyable and varied.  I also value the importance of keeping up with your personal projects and I plan to expand my infrared work, to include medium format infarared in the near future, when funds are available.

 

Anyway, until next time

 

Kind Regards

Wedding Photography Glasgow and Corporate Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/wedding-photography-glasgow-and-corporate-event-photography-edinburgh Dear All

 

A busy week on both sides of the east west divide in Scotland.  I had some interior photography in East Lothian, followed by a corporate event photoshoot in Edinburgh at Murrayfield stadium in Edinburgh and ending with a wonderful wedding celebration event for Angela and Asif at the Village Curry House in Glasgow.  A good day was had by all at the wedding celebration in Glasgow with some fantastic costumes and great photos opportunities, especially the candid reportage style photos.  As a professional photographer in Scotland, I always enjoy this kind of photography, its gives me the opportunity to really enjoy the photoshoot and lets my creative side come to the surface and gives you the chance, as a photographer to show people that its not just all about the technology and the equipment we use., it is to do with having a good relationship with your clients and their guests and well, just being yourself, to be honest.  It was an enjoyable event with some great food to accompany the day.  All the best to Angela and Asif and there guests.

This week, some infrared photography, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project, hopefully anyway, weather permitted, more interior photography commissions and some supercar photography at the weekend.

 

Anyway,until next time.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Urban Photography and Conference Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/infrared-urban-photography-and-conference-photography-edinburgh Hello All

As a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, its always good to get a busy week and this certainly is one coming up.  It starts of with some interior photography at the Rocks Bar and Restaurant in Dunbar on Monday, then some conference photography in Edinburgh on Wednesday, then wedding photography in Glasgow at the weekend.  I cant wait, I love these kind of weeks.  The last fortnight, what with the weather and other call-offs, I have a a bit of time to get come newspaper photography in the storms, also some creative urban photography in Edinburgh and infrared photography in East Lothian, so I am spoilt for choice for the blog photo this month, but I have chosen a photo that has received a lot of attention on social media.  One of the reasons I like social media is the ability to test your images to determine the response, if they receive a lot of positive comments, it is generally a good sign and this one did, which means I will include it in my next exhibition, particularly if it is an infrared exhibition.  I also think it has rekindled my obsession for puddle photography, something I started over 10 years ago.  I like the idea you can make a small puddle seem like Loch Ness if the camera is close enough.

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Dear All

 

Hurrah, whilst the weather is still pretty rotten, the signs are that we can all get back to normal, because as we know it, us freelance professional photographers in Scotland can get a bit twitchy when we cant travel top take photos and professional corporate photoshoots in Edinburgh are cancelled due to the weather, however it gives you that opportunity to interact more on social media, re-assess your long term plans and work on these photos you have been meaning to edit.  Also you may get some press and newspaper photography images if you are lucky.  This week I will have the remainder of one these jobs I am referring too, when I photograph a hotel interior in East Lothian.  We couldn't complete the job, as the images depicting the window and the outside landscape wouldn't have created the right image with snow and all sort of rotten weather in the backround.  I also have a conference photography commission in Edinburgh next week and some wedding photography in Glasgow.  Anyway, until next time I have attached an infrared photo I took in Germany, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project, that I worked on during the weather downtime and in between mediating between fights my children were having, due to boredom caused by the school closures.

 

Until next time

Fish meat and corporate event photography in East Lothian, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/2/fish-meat-and-corporate-photography-in-east-lothian Hi Everyone

 

As a professional photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I have had a really busy week on my return from Germany, where I managed to capture some good infrared photos as part of my infrared project, although this time abroad, first time I have photographed infrared abroad and it was good fun.  The week saw some corporate photography on my return to Scotland, photographing food, rooms and some interactive shots of the Chef at the Rocks Bar and Restaurant in Dunbar, East Lothian, then of to the re-launch of the Belhaven Smokehouse in East Lothian, a great day and thanks to Sandy, Pauline and David for a great day, also to the Cabinet Secretary Fergus Ewing for officially opening the event.  Then to finish of, I had a tour and some photos at Gilmore Butchers, all very interesting and giving me the opportunity to wear funny hats and jackets and strange things on my feet.

 

Anyway, of to prepare for more photography, some sports photography in Dunbar, corporate headshots in Edinburgh and some interior photography at the Rocks, phew a lot to take in before my birthday on Saturday.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

A quick blog today just to say I had the pleasure of working with the guys at the Classic Car event at Scone Palace Perthshire press launch for their event on 21st and 22nd April 2018.  As a professional event corporate photographer in Edinburgh and beyond attending events around Scotland, it is always a pleasure to photograph these fantastic classic cars and also to get the opportunity to add to my infrared in Scotland Project.  What's more a peacock opened up and displayed all its colours for me.  Great day and Looking forward to April.

 

All the best.

Landscape Infrared and Newspaper and PR Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/2/landscape-infrared-and-newspaper-and-pr-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

Another good week, out photographing some more infrared in the hills, as part of my infrared in Scotland project.  I went to Flotterstone in Midlothian in the hope of catching some snow on the hills, but most of it was gone by then.  This begs the question, how exactly does snow react to infrared photography, or the other way round, if you know what I mean, because infrared photos, especially black and white create the effect of snow when it is not snowing, the answer is that you can still tell when its snowing and you tend to get a more glowing effect when there is snow.  Its still good to try and get some trees which aren't covered in snow, as you will need the sun reflecting on the green to create the dramatic effect.  There are a number of images on my website at www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk which demonstrate the infrared effect in snow, including my Highland Cow photo which is for sale at 15% discount if you click on the front page of my website above.  However, just to confuse things I will leave you with a photo that wasn't taken in the snow from Flotterstone, taken on friday.  Other things on this week, include a PR press launch photography for the vintage car photo I took earlier on in the year at Scone Palace in Perthshire and corporate headshot photography in Edinburgh.

 

Anyway, until next time 

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Sports Photography Scotland Dunbar v Tayport https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/sports-photography-scotland-dunbar-v-tayport Hi All

 

Just a quick blog.  Although I am mainly a corporate event photographer working around Edinburgh and Scotland, I also do a fair amount of sport for newspapers in the Lothian area, anyway sport is an event.  You will also know that I specialise in infrared and HDR photography and whilst the sensible person would tell you that they don't go with sport, I beg to differ and think anything is possible, especially now, with billions of photos floating about the web.  The need to be different is even more important.  So I have worked a little on the attached photo, just to give it a bit more zing and to get it noticed.

Anyway, just of to a corporate photoshoot in Glasgow later on in the week, with some newspaper photography in Edinburgh and possibly the opportunity to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project.

 

Anyway, until next time.

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Infrared Photography Scotland and Conference Photographer in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/infrared-photography-scotland-and-conference-photographer-in-edinburgh Hi All

www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk

The Year is up and running now, I had a conference photography assignment in Edinburgh this week and at the end of the week I took some infrared photos in and around Edinburgh, some sports photography at Dunbar at the weekend.

So a quick reminder, as to the some important aspects of Infrared photography 

You need sunlight

Preferably some clouds and if possible trees

Metalic surfaces work well in infrared, to produce punchy contrast images, releasing light that the naked eye cannot see

Be careful with the focussing, sometimes manual is better

Shoot at midday where possible, it's the exact opposite of normal landscape photography when you shoot in low light away from intense sunlight

There is no pattern as to which lens works better, sometimes the cheapest lenses work better in infrared, it just depends on how your camera has been converted

Experiment with software, not just Photoshop, but don't overdo it.  I won't spend more than 5 minutes or so on any photo

Anyway, that's all for now

Until next time

Kind Regards

Colin

Corporate Photography Headshots - What to do and what not to do https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/corporate-photography-headshots---what-to-do-and-what-not-to-do  

See http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/ for more

Hi All

A quick blog today on corporate photography headshots.  Often when out and about photographing corporate events in Edinburgh, I am often asked to do a headshot of one of the participants.  Or I can be asked to the company location.  Here are my do's and dont's

Do try and utilise the background of the subject ie at their desk, or with the company logo behind them

Find out the purpose of the shot ie is it for Social Media, or is it for a brochure, you only need head and shoulders at the very most for a Linkedin image

Do take extra gear

Do take a variety of flash equipment especially if it is your first time at the location

Focus on the eyes

Keep speaking to your subject to keep them relaxed

Take some shots without flash

Keep an eye on the detail ie collar is not straight etc

Try something new, I have photographed headshots in front of graffiti and even done an infrared photography, with Edinburgh in the background

 

Don't rush the shoot

Don't have one specific style of flash and stick to it all costs, you never know what the location will bring

don't take hundreds of shots when only one will be used, it gives the impression you are making lots of mistakes

Don't try only one posed position

 

Anyway, of to my corporate photoshoot headshot commission in Edinburgh, followed by some newspaper photography at the weekend

See you later

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Rugby and Newspaper Photography Edinburgh and East Lothian and Fuji XT2 https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/rugby-and-newspaper-photography-edinburgh-and-fuji-xt2 Hi All

A quick blog from my visit to the rugby at Dunbar yesterday.  I have been using the impressive Fuji 100-400mm lens on my Fuji XT2 recently and will decide soon whether to go back to my Canon gear for sports.  As an event photographer in Edinburgh, I am always looking for new gear and I love using the Fuji XT2 for conferences and corporate photography in Edinburgh and Scotland, but will it match up for newspaper photoshoots in Edinburgh.  I have been trying the 100-400mm on my XT2 for sport recently and here is my verdict very quickly and in plain English.

Image Quality - excellent, sharp images at 100mm to 400mm, although dropping a little at 400mm, to be expected

Focusing - Lets you down a little, doesn't always focus on the moving image, even when the set accordingly in the menu

Speed - Cant react quickly to rapidly changing viewpoints, still processing previous images

Viewfinder - Maybe its just me but I find the electronic viewfinder a bit confusing whilst doing sport

Overall, it is a great lens and may work better in other sports ie I have only tried in in rugby and football.  Image quality and build are great, it just doesn't respond quickly enough for me at the moment and I would be reluctant to rely on this camera and lens for a big important sports commission.  However, a great camera and lens for all other purposes ie event, corporate and landscape.

Anyway, until next time, I will leave you with a shot from yesterday.

Kind Regards

Colin

Corporate Headshots in Wdinburgh and Landscape and Infrared Photography Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/corporate-headshots-in-wdinburgh-and-landscape-and-infrared-photography-scotland Hi All

It's great being an Edinburgh photographer in this weather.  I had an interesting photoshoot during the week when I had a bit of time, the day after my corporae event headshots photoshoot in NHS Education for Scotland, I went up the Pentlands with my infrared camera and my Fuji.  It was the infrared photos that worked well.  I had to trudge through snow but it was well worth it, with magnificent views at the top and an interesting encounter with some highland cows, although one of them looked as if it was going to charge me at one point.  Due to the cold weather, I had a very short time to take photos and this is where preparation and experience come into play, you can't spend time grappling with the settings on your camera when it is ice cold, you must have a strong vision of what you are going to do well in advance of the photoshoot.

 

Anyway, next week more corporate event photography in Edinburgh and a corporate photography commission in Glasgow.

 

Until next time, here is a wee shot of my highland cow friend.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate Photography Headshots and More Landscape Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/corporate-photography-headshots-and-more-landscape-photography Hi All

 

Last week I had a conference photography assignment in Edinburgh and more landscape photography around Scotland, particularly infrared photography, to build on my Infrared Photography in Scotland Project.  However this week I am going to talk briefly about corporate headshots In Edinburgh, this is a service I provide for companies and I will be doing a headshot photoshoot for NHS Education for Scotland, one of my main corporate event photography clients in Edinburgh.  Although I have invested in lighting and backdrops, I sometimes think it can be better to utilise the natural background more often, using the backdrop props which tell you something about the organisation, it's also important to keep a similar background for each member of staff, this looks so tidier on their website and gives a more professional appearance.  Often the corporate logo can feature, or the type of work the employee does.  The only exception to the rule of consistency applies to the Chief Executive, this should reflect their character and can vary from the rest of the staff.

 

Anyway until next time, I will leave you with one of my favourite corporate shoots, not just a headshot but a corporate image all the same.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Hi All

 

Back into the swing of things again, thank goodness, first junior football games of the year, with Tranent v Dunbar, my home team on saturday.  This year, I am hoping to combine my HDR and infrared photography in Scotland with sport and other areas of photography where you wont expect it ie conference photography in Edinburgh and corporate photography in my travels around Scotland.  I have an NHS photoshoot this week to start the new year and lots of PR and event photography coming up.  This year, I plan to expand my client base and to invest in some medium format gear soon, to take my landscape photography to new heights.  I also have some new projects in mind and hope to get out and about more in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee for more street photography in Scotland.  Also, a wee reminder of my other website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, which showcases my infrared, landscape and fine art images.

 

Anyway, until next time, I will leave you with a shot from the game yesterday.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

New Year Event Professional Photographer Assignments in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/new-year-event-professional-photographer-assignments-in-edinburgh Hi All

 

Hope you had a good new year.  This is the time of year when people start to complain about having to get back to normal, but to be honest, I can't wait to start on some photography commissions and things kick of with a corporate photoshoot in Edinburgh early next week, followed by a vet photoshoot in the Borders.  Like everyone else I make the usual new year resolutions at this time of year, but I also reflect on the year, which was easily the most varied of my career, from wedding photography in Edinburgh, to infrared photography in Scotland, sports photography, including the European Touch Rugby Championships in Edinburgh, corporate conferences in Edinburgh and landscape photography on the Isle of Skye, Oh and bungeee jumpers, fast cars, horses, Segways and a bit of newspaper photography.  Hopefully this year will bring more of the same and new challenges.  Anyway, until next time, I will leave you with one of my most successful photos on Instagram, where I conquered my fear of heights to photograph a marriage proposal at the Scott Monument in Edinburgh.

 

Until next time

 

All the best

Kind Regards

Colin

Christmas and New Year Corporate and Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/12/christmas-and-new-year-corporate-and-event-photography-edinburgh Hi All

 

Hope you had a great Christmas and that the New Year brings good things to you.  I am taking a well earned rest, well if you can call looking after the kids a rest, still all good fun.  Had a good end to the year with a corporate vet photoshoot in the Borders and as an event photographer in Edinburgh, a very enjoyable commission with the Edinburgh Rock music group in Gullane, photo attached.  Looking forward to a couple of good corporate photography jobs in Edinburgh over the New Year and another vet photoshoot, also I will be expanding on my personal projects with infrared photography in Scotland and more landscape photography, hopefully some medium format digital photography in Edinburgh soon.  There will also be more PR and event photography in Edinburgh to look forward to.  At this time of year we reflect on the past and future.  With this probably my best year since going full time freelance, I hope to expand even more and to continually strive to provide my personal, corporate and event clients with a bespoke high quality service.

 

Anyway, until next time, happy new year.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

In this final week before Christmas, I have a fairly busy week in between the usual Christmas stuff, with a conference event photography commission in Edinburgh at the beginning of the week, followed by some PR photography in the Borders and the second part of the Edinburgh Rock Project concerts at Gullane, East Lothian - looking forward to it all.  At least it is indoors.  All the Midlothian junior football games were cancelled due to the weather on my newspaper photography Edinburgh and Midlothian shift at the weekend.  However, as an active event photographer in Edinburgh, I did manage a bit of street photography last week and a photo is attached.  This time of year gives  me time to reflect on future direction for the coming new year, more infrared photography in Scotland, I also plan to increase my landscape photography sales, with the aim to do more film based photography and some medium format digital photography in Scotland, after I get my hands on some medium format digital gear.  My aim is to keep developing as a fine art photographer and to provide top quality and original corporate photography in Scotland

Anyway, until next time

A quick blog just to say, I had a great time photographing the first of two concerts for the Rock Project in Wdinburgh, who provide contemporary music tuition for children.  As an event photographer in Edinburgh, who specialises in event and conference photography in Edinburgh and Scotland, it's always good fun to do something a bit different and the concert at the Roxburgh Theatre in Edinburgh was a good one to photograph, with two age groups providing some good quality music in the mini concert.  I look forward to next weeks gig in Gullane, East Lothian

 

Yntil next time

Hi All

As an Edinburgh photographer, this time of year always brings a variety of jobs for me, as a newspaper photographer in Edinburgh and the Lothians, I have just finished the Christmas lights ceremonies in Midlothian, along with football in between (photo attached from the Dalkeith Thistle junior game) and I will be doing some event photography in Edinburgh, where I will see my old friends at NHS Education for Scotland.  Its back to the EICC in Edinburgh, one of my favourite photographic venues.  I will also be involved in a vet photoshoot again in Edinburgh.  These are always good fun, then just at the start of next week, I will be photographing Rock bands in Edinburgh and East Lothian.  Its all happening and its a great way to lead up to the Christmas period.  I may even have some time for my Infrared Photography in Scotland project, weather permitted.  Everything from footballers, to animals to conferences and Christmas lights, variety is the spice of life and all that. If anything this has been my most varied year of photography so far in my career, long may it continue.  Also testing out some new Fuji gear, very happy with the 100-400mm lens for sport and the sharpness is impressive on all their lenses, watch out Canon, plus I wont have a sore back carrying all the smaller mirrorless equipment.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Colin

Hi All

 

After a period of being in bed with the flu, sorry the blog is a few days late.  I have hit the ground running and recovered just in time for a 2 day conference photography commission in Edinburgh at the EICC, one of my favourite venues.  The event was opened by the First Minister of Scotland, for the NatCap Edinburgh 2017 two day conference.  As a conference and event photographer Edinburgh, of all my conference venues in Edinburgh, I particularly enjoy the EICC.  This was a very interesting international event, with environmental protection at the heart of the agenda.  I also have some newspaper photography Edinburgh, at the weekend and another corporate conference event in Edinburgh for NHS Education for Scotland next week and a Vet photoshoot, so it s all go in the lead up to Christmas, so no sign of having time yet for the dreaded Christmas shopping.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Hi Everyone

 

A good week all round as I managed some landscape stock photography in East Lothian, then I had a wee trip to Glasgow to take a wide range of urban photography Glasgow, photos for my new Urban Photography Gallery.  Glasgow is one of my favourite cities to photograph, especially the Clyde.  I even got some stormy weather, which was just right, a photo is attached.  All this has been possible as I have a bit of time before my busy period, which involves three days of conference event photography in Edinburgh at the EICC for both the events and some vet photography in Edinburgh, finishing of with some newspaper photography in Midlothian.  I even managed some infrared photography images from Glasgow, to boost my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  I have a number of projects on the go, my infrared photography one, urban photography, particularly in Edinburgh and a continuation of my Waves project.  However, as I don't have many Glasgow images on this blog, I will leave you with a photo taken this week from that great city.

 

All the best, until next time.

 

 

Kind Regards

 

 

Colin

I thought AI would let you all know I am not just a corporate and event photographer Edinburgh and beyond.  I also do a bit of street photography and today I have Started a new gallery page in my portfolio for Urban Photography, Edinburgh and Glasgow and Beyond.  This will showcase Street and urban photography from around Scotland, some old photos, some new and eventually, as a corporate photographer around Edinburgh, also some city architecture images and infrared photography to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project.

 

So watch this space, a wee image to start us of with.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Hi All

 

A good day out with some newspaper photography for the Midlothian Advertiser on Saturday.  A bit cold, but a fine day and some good football, all the Midlothian teams were winning when I left.  I also managed to catch a goal at each game, which is good going considering they all take place at roughly the same time.  A photo is attached from the Newtongrange Star game.  Some conference event photography Edinburgh coming up soon.  Also a day out photographing Glasgow for some stock images, never a hardship, as I love the city.  You never know if the sun keeps up it's good work, I may get a chance to do some infrared photography, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project.  A rare day off on Saturday, although knowing me I will probably be taking photos one way or another, especially with my new Fuji telephoto lens.

 

All the best, until next time.

 

Kind Regrads

Hi All

 

I know I am always going on about the varied life of a freelance photographer and as a photographer in Edinburgh, this week was no exception, some corporate conference event photography in Edinburgh, mixed in with some landscape photography East Lothian, Scotland and finishing of with some newspaper photography Edinburgh and the Lothians at the weekend, in this case sport with the Midlothian Advertiser.  However, this week I did something for the first time, I photographed the Northern Lights in Dunbar on Tuesday 7th November, this was a new experience for me and I enjoyed it and look forward to trying it again.  It was good fun, but I will be more prepared next time.  I have since done more research on the topic and will be better prepared with the right gear, Oh and also a torch and warm clothing, I tripped over something on the ground, as I was unable to see anything in the dark.  Anyway here is the result.

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Hi All

 

Looking forward to some corporate event photography in Edinburgh, with the season moving in full swing, prior to Christmas.  I have a few conference photography bookings in Edinburgh coming up and cant wait.  I aim to try out some new equipment and as always, I offer the option of some infrared photography, as an addition to the service, weather permitted of course.  Talking about weather, as we love to do in the UK, for a landscape photographer in Edinburgh, it has been pretty good recently, with some dramatic light, a few new photos have been added to the website.  However, due to the response I have had to my jaguar photoshoot, I have decided to attach another image from the day in Perthshire, it was a great day, I love photographing cars and as an event photographer in Scotland, I am looking forward to the classic car 2 day event in Perth next year.

 

Lots to look forward to, including an infrared photography exhibition in Edinburgh, to promote my infrared photography in Scotland project, venue to be decided and plenty of newspaper photography for the Midlothian Advertiser, where I am going to be desperate to try out a new lens for my sports photography commissions.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

All the best

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate Photography Edinburgh and a Jaguar in Perth https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/10/corporate-photography-edinburgh-and-a-jaguar-in-perth Hi Everyone

 

Another busy and varied week of photography, with an interesting newspaper photography assignment for the Midlothian Advertiser at the weekend, with some great Halloween costumes at the Midlothian Community Hospital, but the highlight of my week involved some classic car photography in Perthshire, photographing a 1953 jaguar at various locations in Perthshire including Scone Palace and the town centre in Perth.  It was a joy to photograph such a thing of beauty.  The reason for the photoshoot was to promote a two day classic car event in April next year, photo attached to this blog.  I have a corporate conference event photography assignment in Edinburgh this week, followed by a PR photoshoot in Glasgow later on in the week and of course I will continue with my infrared photography in Scotland project.  I also received my camera replacement from my insurers Aaduki Multi Media Insurance.  A big thank you for processing the insurance claim both quickly and efficiently, after both me and the camera were hit by a big wave in Dunbar.

 

Anyway, until next time

 

Kind Regards

Hi All

 

The end of a very busy and wet week for me.  With the stormy weather, I was out taking landscape photographs at the East Beach in Dunbar East Lothian and was hit by a freak wave that destroyed my camera and almost me.  One second it was totally calm then the next the wave came out of nowhere.  Anyway, these things happen, the attached photo was taken about 5 minute before the incident with a zoom lens, far enough back to be safe and not that close to the waves. 

I had a conference photography event in Edinburgh last week and I am starting to take bookings for corporate event photography around Scotland for the remainder of the year and the beginning of next year.  After getting wet during the week, I ended the week at a very enjoyable photoshoot at a bungee jumping event at the Riverside Museum, Glasgow, a good day was had, thanks again to the Big Bang Promotions crew.  However, once again I got very wet.  So I am looking forward to some dry photography commissions soon.  Of to Scone Place on Tuesday to photograph a Jaguar for a classic car event later next year.  Also some newspaper photography for the Midlothian Advertiser at the weekend.  Hope to get some more infrared photography, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project before the light goes.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Hi Everyone

A busy week finishing with a newspaper photography shift for the Midlothian Advertiser at the weekend, after a week of conference photography in Edinburgh and some landscape and infrared photography in Leith, Edinburgh.  This week the image I am selecting for my blog is a bit different.  Mostly on blogs and social media photographers choose their most striking photos for obvious reasons, to demonstrate their skills, in the hope that they will get more business.  Sometimes however, the photo is the least important thing and this week I have chosen a standard outdoor posed shot for my blog image.  However, it is the history behind the image that is important in this case.  This image was taken for the Midlothian Advertiser, after a street in Gorebridge - David Herkes Way, was named after David Herkes, a Gorebridge man who's quick thinking lead to the capture of Robert Black. It was an honour to photograph the family and friends, in memory of someone who's actions will never be forgotten.

Anyway, of we go into the new week, some corporate event photography in Edinburgh midweek, followed by bunjee jumping photography, Glasgow at the weekend.

Until next time

Kind Regards

Hi All

 

A good end to the week with the wonderful Big Bang Promotions team, photographing a Segway event just outside Edinburgh.  Great fun was had by all, photo attached.  As a corporate conference and event photographer Edinburgh, I am busy at the moment, with lots of events and conference photography commissions in Edinburgh and around Scotland.  I am also updating my fine art photography Scotland website at www.edinburghphotographer.com and preparing fine art infrared photos for sale at the Art Collective, soon to be at Ocean Terminal in Edinburgh.  My next move on the infrared photography front, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project, is to convert a digital medium format camera to infrared, with a view to producing large infrared prints.

 

Also this week, I will be back on a newspaper photography Edinburgh shift for Johnston Press and the Midlothian Advertiser, looking forward to some sports photography and other Cool jobs.  Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin Wright

Hi All

 

Still clinging onto the last bit of summer, with some recent local landscape photography, photo attached, taken at Dunbar, East Lothian.  Last week, some corporate event photography in Edinburgh, infrared photography in Scotland, as part of my project and I also attended a very useful "Meet the Buyer" event in Hampden Stadium, Glasgow, which I found very helpful, in that I made some good contacts, particularly from local authorities, who are looking to commission photographers in Scotland and also some private building firms.  The weekend sees some Segway photography in East Lothian and a corporate event photoshoot in Glasgow.

As a landscape photographer in Scotland, I am taking advantage of living right next to the sea, to boost my landscape collection and some of these images can be viewed on my new Fine Art website at www.edinburghphotogrpaher.com.  My next project is to convert a high level digital camera to infrared, either a medium format body or an ultra high resolution camera.  This will enable me to produce large scale infrared prints.  I am also hoping to take more infrared imagery with people involved, particularly for weddings and other events.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Hi All

 

Now that we are entering slightly colder and darker times, the wedding season comes to a close, although as a wedding photographer Edinburgh, I am always interested in wedding commissions in the winter.  Just had a couple of very enjoyable weddings in East Lothian and Edinburgh recently.  However, this week ended in some newspaper photography in Midlothian at the weekend, photo attached from the Penicuik Athletic match.  The rest of last week involved a corporate conference photography event in Edinburgh and an interesting and enjoyable vet photoshoot in East Lothian.  Still doing the infrared photography in Scotland project, although there are less opportunities for sunshine with the light fading, never mind it is still possible.  Check out my new Fine Art website at www.edinburghphotographer.com.  Its still in the early stages but plenty of landscape, fine art and infrared on display.  On the subject of infrared photography, from the end of this week, some of my infrared work will be available for sale in professional mounts at the Art Collective, 139 Princes Street, Edinburgh EH14 4BL.  This is a wonderful organisation that supports Scottish artists, providing them with a platform to sell their work and it also provides exhibition space.  I am hoping to hold an exhibition at the venue early next year.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

A busy busy week, so a quicker blog this time.  Another varied weekend of photography, with a corporate conference event photoshoot Edinburgh last week and ending in a very enjoyable wedding at the Rocks in Dunbar.  Two weekends and both involving wedding photography.  Both were great fun and I was made to feel very welcome each time.  Not much time or weather for my infrared photography in Scotland project this week, but hoping for some photos soon.  I am preparing a batch of infrared photos for the Art Collective in Edinburgh for selling purposes and possibly an exhibition a bit later on.  This week, I had another enjoyable corporate photography job at a vet practice in Tranent and the weekend will involve some sports an newspaper photography in Midlothian, it's all happening.

 

Anyway, until next time, a bigger blog next week and more news about my new fine art photography Edinburgh website. www.edinburghphotographer.com.

Hi All

 

The first of two weekends of wedding photography in Edinburgh took place yesterday and it was a great day for Donna and Stephen at the Holiday Inn in Edinburgh. They really were a joy to work with and although we were indoors for most of the day, the weather held out to enable us to have a short photoshoot at Corstorphine Hill.  A good day was had by all, photo attached.  Next week it's on home turf when I have a wedding photoshoot at the Rocks in Dunbar, looking forward to it.  Also some corporate event photography in Edinburgh next week and hopefully some infrared photography, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  I even managed some infrared photography at the wedding yesterday and plan to do a lot more at future weddings.  Finally some motor sport photography at East Fortune on Friday.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

As mentioned in my previous quick blog, I had a press photoshoot at the weekend at the Midstock Music Festival.  Although I have photographed music before, this was my first Music Festival as an official photographer and I was a bit out my comfort zone, as My specialism is either event and corporate photography in Edinburgh or weddings, but I had a great time, it's a real buzz being on stage and the acts were great especially the Skids and Stevie McCrorie.   Come to think of it, music festivals are a bit like photographing conferences, at the gig I could only photograph for the first three songs, at a conference I restrict the photography to the start of the speakers presentation.  Both the conferences and speakers are on stage and it's all about catching the expressions and emotions.  Mind you conferences don't sell booze and the crowd are a bit quieter.  Lots of photos on the website from the gig.

 

This weekend I am very much looking forward to a wedding in Edinburgh, with one at the Rocks in Dunbar the following week.  I am also launching my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, for my infrared photography in Scotland and fine art photography, it's in the early stages but tell me what you think.  Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate and Event Photographer Scotland and a bit of Infrared Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/corporate-and-event-photographer-scotland-and-a-bit-of-infrared-photography Hi All

 

Another hectic week, with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival drawing to a close, its time to get back into some sort of normality, with a corporate event photography commission in Edinburgh next week, in addition to some more infrared photography, to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project.  As I have now moved to a new location in Dunbar, this is also giving me the opportunity to further my landscape photography in East Lothian and I have been shooting away locally since we arrived.  I have always had a soft spot for HDR photography and I attach a recent photo taken at the East Beach in Dunbar.

At the weekend I will have some newspaper photography in Midlothian to look forward to and then its a big build up to the two wedding photography commissions I have in September in Edinburgh and East Lothian - looking forward to it.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/?customize=1

A busy week with a bit of everything from a photography point of view.  Not sure whether to include an event photography Edinburgh photo from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, or a corporate photography Scotland image, so I decided on some sports photography from the Newtongrange Star junior match at the weekend, taken during my newspaper shift for the Midlothian Advertiser.  Good game and a good weekend of sport, although I missed out on the home side goals during my shift.  Its just a luck thing, as I go from game to game during the afternoon.

I have also been continuing with my infrared photography in Scotland project at the Festival and done some HDR photography near my new location at Dunbar.  Now on the website, hope you like it.

This week, some corporate event photography in Edinburgh and preparation for weddings next month, in addition to more Festival and landscape shots.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Hi All

Out and about at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival when I get a chance last week and hopefully in the next week or so, between event and corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh.  The photo attached to this blog was taken last Thursday.  As usual a great atmosphere, more challenging now due to the crowds, but I am used to that, I have just returned from the Isle of Skye and noticed that it has turned from a quiet island in the north west of Scotland to one of the busiest tourist destinations in the country.  Also this week I had a corporate photography commission in Edinburgh and some event photography with motor sports photography at East Fortune near Edinburgh.  As an infrared photographer in Scotland, I haver to take advantage of the weather and the blue sky with clouds and sunshine weather we have been getting recently (with a few stormy showers in between mind you) is ideal for the infrared photographer and the images I take will be added to further my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.

 

Some newspaper photography in Midlothian, at the weekend, looking forward to it.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate, Event and Infrared Photography at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/corporate-event-and-infrared-photography-at-the-edinburgh-fringe-festival-scotland Hi All

 

It's all hotting up with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival well underway.  This year, I am going to attempt to cover it as much as I can in infrared, within limits, due to other work, such as a corporate conference event photography commission in Edinburgh, followed by some motor sport photography at East Fortune at the weekend.  I have also just moved house, so everything is still in boxes, but I always know where my camera is.  In addition, as part of my infrared photography in Scotland project, I will be continuing to add infrared images from my Skye trip last month to the website.  Also a fine art website is on the way.  I also have a few wedding photography in Scotland assignments coming up in September.  So its all go.  I will leave you with a quick photo at took just before the start of this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival, more to come after I visit Edinburgh on Monday.

 

Until next time.

 

All the best

Just back from a combined holiday and landscape photography on the Isle of Skye, on of my favourite places on the planet, photo attached.  This time I decided to do most of the photos in infrared, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  Most aspects of photography have been attempted again and again, but I feel there is a place for more infrared images in Scotland and I aim to further this project as much as I can in the coming moths and years.  I will be launching a new website for my infrared and fine art work soon, watch this space.  Anyway, as a professional event photographer in Edinburgh and Glasgow, I am off to photograph a bungee jumping event at the weekend.  I love event photography in Glasgow and I am looking forward to it.  Tomorrow, I am off to Edinburgh for some professional corporate event photography and I have a conference photography event in Edinburgh the following week.  I am just finding my feet after my return from Skye, so hope to have development in a lot of new projects soon.

 

Until then, all the best.

 

Kind Regards

Newspaper Photography, Scotland and Edinburgh and Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/newspaper-photography-scotland-and-edinburgh-and-event-photography-edinburgh Hi All

 

A good week, ending with some newspaper photography for the Midlothian Advertiser, photographing two sisters who were having their haircut for the very worthwhile Bright Sparks charity in Midlothian, thanks to Beauts Hairdressers in Rosewell for their co-operation on the day.  A photo is attached to this blog. Great weather, until thursday, for some infrared photography, to form part of my infrared photography in Scotland project.  I will be of to the Isle of Skye, at the end of the week, hopefully for some good infrared and landscape photography, if the weather allows.  When I return, I have a conference photography assignment in Edinburgh and some event photography in Glasgow.  As a professional event photographer in Scotland, this is a great time of the year, with the long days and weather providing photographers like myself with great opportunities for event photography, landscape, weddings and a wide range of outdoor opportunities.

 

Anyway, until next time

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Hi All

 

Just finished a very enjoyable 3 day motor sport event with Thrillpic at East Fortune near Edinburgh.  As a sports photographer in Scotland, you are always praying for good weather and it held out pretty well for all three days, more opportunity to top up my tan.  In addition, I managed to take a few infrared images, to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project, picture attached to this blog.  I am off to do some stock landscape and fine art photography in Glasgow and Edinburgh this week I will also be doing a newspaper photoshoot in Dunbar, East Lothian on Wednesday and a corporate headshot in Edinburgh later on in the week.  Then to finish off, a corporate event photoshoot in Edinburgh and a newspaper shift with the Midlothian Advertiser on Saturday.  Phew, busy week. 

 

I am also in the process of launching a new fine art website, primarily to showcase my infrared, landscape and black and white fine art photography from around Scotland and Europe.  Details in next weeks blog.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Colin

Sports Photography Edinburgh and Corporate and Event Photography Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/sports-photography-edinburgh-and-corporate-and-event-photography-scotland Hi All

 

A busy weekend in this grand weather, ending in a brilliant day covering the European Touch Rugby Championships at Peffermill Edinburgh.  In unusually hot weather all day a great day was had by all.  As a an event and sports photographer in Edinburgh, it is great to get good weather, especially if you a predominantly an outdoor photographer.  However, as all photographers are aware, bright sunny days are also very challenging, you need to ensure you are photographing from the correct position and angle and this can change by the hour.  You also dont always having the luxury of changing your position to suit, as you may have restrictions imposed on you by the organisers, or you might need to face a certain direction to cover a specific attacking team.  But overall its much better than rain.  I had a great day covering the games for one of the England Touch Rugby teams, photo attached.

I also had an interior property photography photoshoot in East Lothian and some corporate event photography in Edinburgh, with a conference photography commission in the centre of Edinburgh.

This week, more sports photography at the end of the week and some conference event photography in Glasgow during the week.

Anyway, all the best, until next time.

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Event Photographer Edinburgh Out and About https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/event-photographer-edinburgh-out-and-about Hi All

www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk

As an corporate event photographer in Edinburgh and the surrounding area, the outdoor sports and gala season is now in full swing.  I was doing some newspaper photography for the Midlothian Advertiser at the weekend and had the pleasure of photographing the Newtongrange Gala day.  A fantastic day was had by all and the weather held out well.  I have a busy week or two ahead, with this week ending with some sports photography in Edinburgh at the European Touch Rugby Championships on Saturday.  I have also been out and about with my new Fuji XT2 camera photographing landscapes in East Lothian.  Landscape photography is all about luck, hard work and great light and I had it all last Wednesday night, with some stormy light and a partial sunset and a couple of surfers, one of whom I knew, Dan Waters, who was a great help in allowing me to constantly photograph him.  I also managed a few infrared photographs, to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project.  So it was a week of variety and to add to that variety, I am off to do some conference event photography in Edinburgh this week also.

 

So, its all happening, then of to Skye for a weeks holiday, where I will definitely take the opportunity to get some landscape shots.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Corporate Photography, Haddington Festival and a bit of Infrared Photography, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/corporate-photography-haddington-festival-and-a-bit-of-infrared-photography-scotland Hi All

 

A grand week of weather, starting with a corporate event commission with some enjoyable conference photography in Edinburgh and ending with some newspaper photography in East Lothian at the Haddington Festival.  In between, I managed some infrared photography at Foxlake, East Lothian and the Bridges at South Queensferry, near Edinburgh.  The weather was great for the Haddington Festival on saturday 3rd June, it was good to see all the costumes and everyone enjoying themselves.  These events are great to photograph, there is so much variety, you get to photograph people in colourful costumes, music, dancers, runners and various other activities going on.  It is particularly enjoyable when you have a strong connection to the community.  The photo I have attached to this blog is from one of the musicians playing at the event, in this case Caitlyn Vanbech from Tranent, East Lothian, who also appeared on the X Factor recently.  The quality of musicians I heard was pretty fantastic, well done guys.

 

Anyway, busy week ahead with some corporate headshot photography in Glasgow, more infrared photography in Scotland and finishing with some newspaper photography in Midlothian at the weekend, likely to be from the Gala Day season.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

Infrared Photography in Scotland - This Week Linlithgow https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/infrared-photography-in-scotland---this-week-linlithgow Hi All

 

As you know I specialise in corporate conference and event photography in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, but my other passion is infrared photography in Scotland.  I have been documenting infrared images wherever I go - weather permitting and it isn't just now, as I look out the window at the clouds.  A reminder that you always need a certain amount of sunshine.  The other things, trees and foliage in general, clouds with blue skies and water also help.  Probably two out the three I have mentioned will make a good image, provided the composition is ok.  Here is a quick infrared photograph taken at Linlithgow, Scotland

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

Colin

Sports Photography in Midlothian and Fife and Corporate Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/sport-photography-in-midlothian-and-corportevevent-photography-edinburgh Hi All

http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/

A busy week again, with a corporate event photography commission, Edinburgh, some infrared photography, to my infrared photography Scotland project and finally ending in some newspaper and PR photography for the Midlothian Advertiser.  As a corporate event photographer, I am honest about the fact that corporate event photography, particularly conferences is my specialist area and I love doing it.  However, I do have a soft spot for fine art infrared photography and I also enjoy sports photography.  This week in glorious sunshine I have been involved in motorsports photography in Fife, football in Bonnyrigg and cricket in Penicuik.   I am getting used to the cricket photography now and starting to enjoy it, especially when you have time.  It presents photographers with totally different challenges than other sports photography commissions and it can be difficult without a long lens, as you are a fair distance from the action.  The constant changing positions of the batsman can also present challenges, as it can take a bit of time changing your location as a photographer, however I enjoy it, particularly when the weather is as nice as it was at the weekend.

 

Finally, this week, I just purchased a Fuji XT2 camera and I am looking forward to throwing myself into the mirrorless camera revolution, following on from my scrapyard photography project using the Fuji XPro 1.  Lots more to look forward this week, with some conference photography in Edinburgh and landscape photography throughout Scotland.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

5 Top Tips for Conference Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/5-top-tips-for-conference-photography Home Page: http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk

 

Hi All

As a professional corporate event photographer in Edinburgh, I am always being asked for advice on taking photographs at conferences and I have compiled a quick guide containing 5 of the most important areas to concentrate on for the conference photographer.  There are of courser many aspects requiring consideration, but the 5 listed below are at least a good starter point:

 

1.   If at all possible, know your venue inside out, particularly the natural and artificial light sources (at the time of day you will be photographing the event).  Restrictions to certain areas etc.  Knowing these things will help you gauge the equipment you require to bring and also to plan your day.

 

2.   Determine in your clients requirements in advance and write them down ie timing - must do shots etc.  Also determine if they have any restrictions on the way you work, this could include flash usage, people who dont want their photography taken, how long you are required to photograph

 

3.    Practice every scenario in advance where possible, ask someone to go on stage with the lighting as it will be during the event - nothing should be a surprise to you, it is essential that you are prepared for every eventuality.  I once photographed a conference in Scotland and learned 30 seconds before the start that they would be turning of all artificial lighting for the speakers.  It was just enough time for me to change my settings, otherwise I could have messed up the first speaker shots and often they are the most important images.

 

4.    Take only the gear you will require, don't overburden yourself with equipment.  Taking only what you need will allow you to focus better on how you will take the best photos and you will save your back and reduce the chance of losing equipment.  Event photography is all about preparation.

 

5.  Back up all the memory cards at least twice and as soon as possible after the event, take a laptop if you are staying overnight.  I could write an article on all the things that can and have gone wrong for photographers.  If you have dual card slots, always use them, they saved me once when I was photographing a corporate conference in Scotland luckily I was using dual cards and at the end of conference I removed a faulty card from my camera, I wasnt stressed, as I had the back-up card, the price of an extra memory card is negligible in comparison to being sued by a client, or the business going down the tubes.

 

Anyway, happy conference shooting.  Corporate photography is good fun really.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Landscape Photography Scotland and Corporate Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/landscape-photography-scotland-and-corporate-photography-edinburgh  

Hi All

http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/

I have had a chance to do some landscape photography over the past week, photo attached to this blog from North Berwick, Scotland.  As a professional corporate and event photographer in Edinburgh, it is always good to get the opportunity to pursue some personal projects.  In addition to my infrared photography in Scotland project, I am also a landscape photographer Edinburgh and I particularly enjoy photographing seascapes around Scotland.  A trip to Skye is on the cards soon, cant wait. This week I have some sports photography in Fife, Scotland, along with some newspaper and PR photography at the weekend, which I imagine will involve some local gala days or political stuff, with the election coming soon.  

I think it is very important to pursue individual projects to keep fresh and whilst it is always good to specialise to a certain extent, you also need variety and personal projects, almost obsessively, to express yourself in a creative way.  After all it is our love of photography that draws us to the profession in the first place and this is important to remember during financially tight times.   Anyway, about to prepare for a conference event photography commission in Edinburgh and some corporate headshot photography in Glasgow, Scotland.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Sports Photography and a bit of Infrared Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/sports-photography-and-a-bit-of-infrared-photography-in-scotland Hi All

 

A busy week again, with some great weather for my infrared photography in Scotland project.  As a professional event corporate photographer in Edinburgh I had the pleasure of photographing a two day conference in last week and conference photography in Edinburgh is my specialism, but every now and again I get the opportunity to do something a bit different and as I keep focusing on in my blogs, it is this type of variety that keeps us fresh as photographers and enables us to move into new ground.  Over the last few weeks I have photographed conferences in Edinburgh, an engagement proposal photoshoot in Edinburgh, a horse in Macmerry and to end this week, some sports photography in East Lothian with the supercars in East Fortune.  Great weather all weekend, some photos soon, but in the meantime, I thought I would leave you with an infrared photo from nearer home at Belhaven Bay, Dunbar.  There was a dramatic cloud formation and infrared brought it out a bit more.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Professional Corporate photography Edinburgh and cricket photography in Penicuik https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/professional-corporate-photography-edinburgh-and-cricket-photography-in-penicuik Hi All

 

I had a very varied week last just finished, with some infrared photography in Edinburgh, to enhance my infrared photography in Scotland project, then a big 2 day corporate medical conference photography commission in Edinburgh with NHS Education for Scotland.  Lots of great speakers and really good to catch up with my former colleagues at NES.  As a professional corporate event photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I hear all sorts of presentations and although I am obviously concentrating on the photography, I do take in some interesting stuff.   At the weekend, a little bit out of my comfort zone with some newspaper sports photography in Penicuik, for the Midlothian Advertiser.  As a sports photographer, it helps if you love sport, which I do, although we cant like every sport and photographing cricket is a bit out of my comfort zone, as I am by no means a cricket fan.  It is, however very interesting to photograph, with some unique challenges from a photographic perspective, ie the distance from the participants, the restrictions facing the photographer, the challenge of making sure you get the ball in the shots etc. However, it is still sport and I enjoy adapting to different environments.  I can even see the appeal to cricket, to be honest.  A few cricket shots now added to my website and one attached to this blog

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

A good week, ending in some newspaper photography, Edinburgh for junior football at Bonnyrigg Rose ground on Saturday, for the Midlothian Advertiser.  I covered 2 games and was unlucky enough not to be present for a single goal.  Never mind, still managed some good action shots, one attached to this blog from the first half at Bonnyrigg.  A busy week coming up with some corporate event photography in Edinburgh for a medical conference at the EICC for NHS Education for Scotland.  This is one of my busiest conference photography assignments of the year in Edinburgh and a very enjoyable one too, with some great speakers.  As a professional event and corporate photographer, based near Edinburgh, I am always looking for new things to do and I plan to expand the scope of my Infrared photography in Scotland project to include metallic prints and a range of new subjects, such as sport and eventually short videos - watch this space.  Anyway better send these shots to the newspaper.

 

Until next time.

 

 

Kind Regards

Professional Corporate Event Photography in Glasgow and Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/professional-corporate-event-photography-in-glasgow-and-edinburgh Hi All

 

Another busy week again.  I have been doing a bit of infrared photography, an equine photoshoot in East Lothian and to finish of the week some, event photography in Glasgow with the UK Bungee team.  A great two days at the Riverside Museum, Glasgow, where we had over 200 jumpers in good weather, thanks again to the UK Bungee team for making it such a good event.  As a professional corporate event photographer in Edinburgh and Scotland, I often get an opportunity to participate in events and I have had a shot of the Supercars before.  However, bungee jumping is a different ball game.  I still cant pluck up the courage to do it.  So my photo of the week today is an infrared photo at the location of the bungee jumping event, at the Riverside Museum, showing the Tall Ship on the River Clyde, Glasgow, to add to my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.  I know you would probably rather see a shot of myself with a look of terror on my face as I do a jump, but this is all you get for now, maybe some other day.

 

This week I have some newspaper photography in Midlothian at the weekend, I am attending the Photovision Roadshow for photographers at Murrayfield in Edinburgh and as a professional corporate event photographer in Edinburgh, I will be preparing for a large Medical conference in Edinburgh next week.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Freelance Photograhy in Edinburgh and Event Photography, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/freelance-photograhy-in-edinburgh-and-event-photography-scotland Hi Everyone

 

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.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

The end of an exhausting, yet enjoyable three day weekend photographing the supercars at East Fortune, more next weekend.  This week, I will be doing some equine photography in Macmerry Scotland, a corporate photoshoot in Edinburgh and a surprise photoshoot that I can only release details of next week after the event.  As a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, my busiest period is about to start and I can't wait to get my teeth into some good corporate photography events in Edinburgh and around Scotland.   I can now also offer some corporate infrared photography for my event photography clients in Edinburgh, and also continue my infrared in Scotland project, at the same time.  I will leave you with an infrared photo taken last weekend.

 

Anyway, until next time.

At last a change in the weather, which helped me take some good sports photographs at the weekend in Midlothian, photo attached from the Newtongrange v Musselburgh game.  As a professional corporate and event photographer in Edinburgh, it is nice to get out and about, as I am a bit of an outdoor person. There were some great games in Midlothian on saturday, particularly the Newtongrange match.  I also had some motorsport photography at Fife Airport on friday.

 

This week sees some more motor sport, another professional event photography commission in Edinburgh and a corporate headshot photography commission in Glasgow.  Looking forward to it and in between I hope to get some more images for my infrared photography in Scotland project.  There are also a couple of new infrared photos on the website from Gosford, East Lothian

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Newspaper and PR Photography and Event Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/newspaper-and-pr-photography-and-event-photography-edinburgh Dear All

 

For a professional event photographer in Edinburgh, I had a good week last week, with some fine weather at the weekend to help make my newspaper photography commission much more enjoyable.  I had one of my best newspaper and PR photography days on saturday for the Midlothian Advertiser, which had everything from photographing SNP politicians, prior to the forthcoming local authority elections, to a sheep worrying initiative at Flotterstone, a gymnastic competition at Loanhead and some football and rugby, now thats what I call a varied day, I even managed to get some sunburn, a bit of a contrast from last week photographing motorsport, when I had four layers of clothing on and was still too cold.  Anyway, I will leave you with a photo from the sheep worrying event.

Next week, more motorsport photography in Fife, newspaper photography in Midlothian and Edinburgh and hopefully a chance to add to my infrared photography in Scotland project.  I also have a corporate conference photography photoshoot in Edinburgh.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Motor Sport and Conference Photography, Edinburgh and East Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/motor-sport-and-conference-photography-edinburgh-and-east-lothian Hi All

 

A really busy weekend with conference photography in Edinburgh and motor sport photography in East Fortune with the ThrillPic team, good to get back into the swing of things, pity about the weather on Saturday, still good fun.   As a commercial event photographer in Edinburgh, I love the variety, especially this time of year, a bit of outdoor motor sport photography, indoors for a conference and then outdoors again for some infrared photography in Scotland.  Whilst I specialise in corporate photography in Scotland, I also enjoy sports photography and fine art infrared photography.  If I did the same thing every day, I think I would lose my edge a bit.  On the other hand no photographer is able to do every type of commission.  That would also require so much equipment you would need a house to store it in.

 

Anyway a calmer week with some infrared photography and a newspaper and PR photoshoot at the weekend.  Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Conference Event Phtography in Edinburgh and Motor Sport Photography Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/conference-event-phtography-in-edinburgh-and-motor-sport-photography-scotland Hi All

 

I am hitting a busy period just now, which is great.  I had a very interesting and enjoyable corporate photography headshot commission in Edinburgh last week, great to see all the gang at MHS Education for Scotland and I am of there again in a couple of days for a corporate conference event photography commission in Edinburgh, this time its at the wonderful conference venue of Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. As an event photographer in Edinburgh, I love conference photography commissions and there are always opportunities to get creative.  The motor sport event season has started and the outdoor photography events are in full swing, ie the supercars and bunjee jumping, both in the next few weeks.  The car events are great fun, with the main venues at East Fortune and Lochgelly (photo attached form a previous Supercar event)  Hopefully I will also get the opportunity to take some infrared photos at these events, as part of my Infrared Photography in Scotland project.

 

Anyway, busy, busy, busy, better get going.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

A busy week and the weather is getting better.  As a newspaper photographer in Edinburgh, I had an interesting shift at the weekend, photographing football around Mid and East Lothian for the Midlothian Advertiser, photo attached from the Haddington v Dalkeith game. As a corporate event photographer in Edinburgh, things are starting to get busy now, as we approach spring.  I have some Corporate headshots with the NHS over the next few weeks, looking forward to that.  As an event photographer Edinburgh, its nice to do a variety of work and at the weekend I will be doing some motorsport photography in Fife.  It's all go and I even managed to get some infrared photography in Scotland on sunday

 

Anyway, until next time

Scottish Taekwondo Championships and Conference Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/scottish-taekwondo-championships-and-conference-photography Hi All

As a commercial freelance event photographer Edinburgh, I am often either outdoors as a newspaper sports photographer, Edinburgh, or indoors photographing conferences around Scotland, but there is one event every year which involves indoor photography and sport, its the Scottish Taekwondo Championships at the Ravenscraig Arena in Motherwell.  A very enjoyable day and this year I was on duty, along with my colleague Jason Kimmings, for the second day for the under 18 age groups.  As usual it was great fun.  The one thing gets me every time that is the emotion involved during the sparring events and the capturing of pain, joy and disappointment make it a very interesting event, even if it's not really your sport.  Anyway well done to all, photo attached and more on the website.

Now its back to some conference photography in Edinburgh and some outdoor photographer events in Eat Lothian and Fife, Scotland.

See you all soon.

Kind Regards

A busy week, ending with a particularly frantic weekend, as an event photographer in Edinburgh, it's good to get some different events and for the third time in the last few years , I photographed the Scottish Taekwondo Championships at the Ravenscraig Arena, Motherwell.  A great day was had by all, lots of action and emotion, some photos soon.  I also had some newspaper photography with the Midlothian Adertiser, with some junior football and a great game between Penicuik and musselburgh, photo attached to the blog.

 

Last week, I also had a  photography event in Edinburgh and I have some conference photography, Edinburgh with NHS Education for Scotland soon.  As a commercial photographer in Wdinburgh, you are going to have your busy times and this is certainly one of mine at the moment.  Coming up soon, some event photography, outside Edinburgh and a bungee jumping photographer event in Glasgow.

 

Speak to you all soon.

 

Kind Regards

Hi All

The weather is proving to be a bit of a wash out at the moment, with the likelihood that most of the football and rugby will cancelled for my newspaper photography Midlothian Advertiser shift.  I will still have a couple of indoor jobs which was just as well. Someone said to me a few weeks ago under similar weather circumstances “thats an easy day for you”  but this isn’t an office job.  As a sports and event  photographer in Edinburgh, you want to be taking photos.  You need to be out there and you would do it even if you aren’t getting paid.  So anyway here is a photo from the Dunbar United game last weekend, pretty controversial, with Dunbar getting a man sent off in the first 5 minutes, never mind there is always next year.

A busy week with some conference photography Edinburgh coming up and some event photography in  Edinburgh and ending with some sports photography at Motherwell with the Scottish Taekwondo championships on sunday – cant wait and its indoors, so they can’t cancel it.

 

Anyway until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Fine Art Infrared and Corporate Event Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/fine-art-infrared-corporate-event-photography-in-scotland Hi everyone

 

A busy week and I finally completed my commission for Thurston Manor outside Dunbar.  A photo is attached of one of the photos on display at the Caravan and Leisure Centre, taken at Traprain Law, near Haddington, East Lothian.  This was a very enjoyable commission, thanks to Hilary Chadwick from Chadwick Design for thinking of me.  Pop along to Thurston Manor Leisure Centre, its like a mini exhibition of my photos, some infrared photography in Scotland also.

 

This week sees me out and about for a conference photography event in Edinburgh, some newspaper work and as an event photographer, Edinburgh, Scotland, one of my most enjoyable events, the Scottish Taekwondo Championships ending at the weekend, in Motherwell, Scotland.   I have a few conference photography events coming up and if time, today, Saturday, I will pop along to the Dunbar United cup game, cmon the boys, maybe have some sports photography photos of the game in a day or two.

 

Anyway until next time, I will leave you with one of my favourite photographs on display at Thurston Manor

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Weather and the Professional Freelance Event Photographer Edinburgh, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/weather-and-the-professional-freelance-event-photographer-edinburgh-scotland Hi All

 

This is very much a story of weather in our beloved Scotland.  Once again all the games were cancelled for my newspaper photography shift in Midlothian at the weekend.  As a professional freelance and event photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland, this is part of life and at least I get to shoot sports events all year round, with a host of events waiting for me in the summer, such as motor sports, athletics etc. I also have the Scottish Taekwondo Championships to photograph at the end of the month. The conference season has also started again and I am looking forward to some corporate conference photography in Scotland this week and next.

The Infrared photography in Scotland project continues and I will be delivering some East Lothian landscape photos and infrared images to Thurston Manor for display in one of their function rooms, later today.   Here is a recent infrared photograph with this blog, see the weather hasn't been bad all the time.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Landscape, Event and Conference Photography, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/landscape-event-and-conference-photography-scotland Hi Everyone

 

As we move into February, its the start of the outdoor season, with more light available.  As a landscape photographer in Scotland, there will be plenty of opportunities for landscape and infrared photography in Scotland.  So for this weeks photo, I have decided to re-visit an earlier corporate photography Scotland commission I had at Loch Fyne for Scottish Enterprise.  It was a fine autumn day and the job involved photographing journalists from China at the Oyster Bar at Loch Fyne and then of to the Loch to view the whole process of catching the fish, right through to cooking from start to finish(more photos from the kitchen and the venue on my website at www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk)  Its one of my favourite landscape photography destinations and I look forward to returning soon.  Here is an infrared photo from the shoot.

 

This week, I have a corporate photography event commission in Edinburgh and conference photography in Glasgow.  I am also preparing some landscape images to be displayed following a brief at Thurston Manor, near Dunbar.  This will mean up to 14  of my landscape photographs from East Lothian and Edinburgh will be displayed on the site.  Looking forward to this.  Then to end the week, some newspaper photography in Midlothian.

 

Until next time.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate Event Photography, Edinburgh and Newspaper Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/corporate-event-photography-edinburgh-and-newspaper-photography Hi All

 

As a freelance corporate event photographer in Edinburgh, I had another busy week with a corporate event in Edinburgh during the week, some infrared photography in Central Scotland and finishing of with some newspaper/PR photography on Saturday.  The weather was pretty awful on Saturday but at least some of the games were on.  It can be a bit of a struggle on these kind of days, as you are constantly trying to keep your gear dry, keep warm yourself and the light is poor, which can create problems for sports photographers in Scotland, especially later on in the day, however, never give up as you dont know what you are going to get on the day.  I was lucky enough to be well positioned for an incident in the Dalkeith football game I was covering and caught a player and goalie mid air, photo attached, hopefully it will be in the Midlothian Advertiser this week.

 

Anyway, this week, some more newspaper photography in Edinburgh, a conference photography n Glasgow and I keep searching for the perfect picture with my infrared photos in Scotland

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Infrared Sports Photography, Event Photographer in Scotland and More https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/infrared-sports-photography-event-photographer-in-scotland-and-more Hi All

 

I was covering a football match at the weekend for Dunbar United, well done by the way guys, great result, and as an event photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland, looking to do something a bit different, I decided to combine my infrared photography Scotland project with some newspaper and sports photography in East Lothian.  What do you think, I kind of like it, more to come soon.

 

As an event and corporate photographer in Edinburgh I am also about to get in the swing of the event photography season and plan to introduce more infrared work into my corporate photography commissions in Scotland.  We are all looking for that USP in as event photographers and I hope to offer my clients something that little bit different.

 

Anyway, until next time, enjoy.

 

More of the football infrared photos are also in the infrared section of my website.

 

 

Kind Regards

Subject Matter for Infrared Photography in Scotland (all year round) https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/subject-matter-for-infrared-photography-in-scotland-all-year-round  

As an infrared photographer in Scotland, I am always looking for new subjects to photograph and as we all know outdoor infrared photography in Scotland needs sunshine, so the majority of photos will be taken in the summer, when we have more light.  Not good if you are in Scotland I hear you say.  Not necessarily so, the light at this time of year can be intense midday.  Also there are less people walking around when it’s cold, which will give you more opportunity for a remote atmospheric shot, apart from the occasional walker and their dog (the enemy of the outdoor landscape photography).  The misconception about infrared is that you need trees and flowers in full bloom and you can only take photos in the summer.

I won’t go into too much detail at this stage (more detail to follow at a later date) why the following subjects are good to photograph in infrared, suffice, it’s not all about trees and the following subjects worked for me, so here we go:

 

Anything with green foliage, ie that goes for grass, trees etc

Tree branches out of season

Reflections on water, particularly trees

Metal objects, although watch out for the direction of the sun and its effect on the metal surface

Buildings with glass, again, its their reflective properties which make the shot

Clouds mixed with blue skies

People, particularly performers

Cars and planes, their metallic properties make them ideal for infrared photography

 

If you can mix a few of the above subjects into one image, even better.  Anyway, happy shooting,

Until next time.

Colin

Back into the swing of things for the New Year.  I have started to do a few articles on my blog, which are linked into my Linkedin account, some are on event and corporate photography in Scotland and some on the subject of infrared photography in East Lothian and Scotland.  I have an equine photoshoot coming up in March, looking forward to that and a conference photography event in Edinburgh soon, in addition to some newspaper photography work in Midlothian and Edinburgh.  I was on my first newspaper PR photography commission of the New Year in Midlothian at the weekend.  All the sport was cancelled due to the weather, boo hoo, but I still attended a couple of events for the Midlothian Advertiser, one of these was a Family Fun charity event at Newbattle Church in Newtongrange.  The photo I will eave you with is from the Newtongrange Silver Band.  Well done guys great sound, hope I wasnt too disruptive when I took your photo.

 

Just looking out the window, the sun is coming out, as an infrared photographer in Scotland, I can feel a photo or two coming on.

 

Until next time.

 

Kind Regards

Commissioning Controlled or Uncontrolled Environment Photographers https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/1/commissioning-controlled-or-uncontrolled-environment-photographers Commissioning Controlled or Uncontrolled Environment Photographers and why it is Important

 

As an event photographer in Scotland, I am largely commissioned to photograph outdoor events, such as football, rugby, bungee jumping, motor sports etc.  I also love doing fine art, landscape, street photography and photographing my kids playing outdoors.  In addition, I photograph conferences and weddings indoors, but even then I prefer situations where I have no control over the environment.  Whilst photographers tend to do commissioned work for both, it’s fair to say that most of us concentrate and prefer either a controlled or uncontrolled environment.

 

So what are the characteristics of these two types of photographers and how are they different.  Generally, the vast majority of outdoor shots are unplanned and not pre-determined before the event.  The photographer also in this uncontrolled environment usually has no influence over what will happen next and they thrive on this type of photoshoot, whereas the studio photo photographer prefers an environment where he or she can control the lighting, background, facial expression etc.  Although largely an outdoor photographer, my favourite type of indoor photography is conferences, as they are mainly uncontrolled environment events, which involves photographing the speakers/workshop participants etc.  This leads me on to different personality types, with some people preferring the unexpected and unplanned, while others prefer complete control.  Some commissioned work can be a mixture of the two, ie newspaper photography and weddings, but even then, the photographer’s preference for one or the other will usually be shine through.

 

Why is all this important to a business, because you should be looking to commission a photographer, who closely matches your requirements.  How can you do this, by looking for controlled or uncontrolled environment images in their portfolios.  The last thing you want is an uncomfortable photographer outside his or her comfort zone.  You don’t have to ask the question outright, as the images should demonstrate the skills of the photographer.  Anyway, good luck, I will leave you with a classic uncontrolled environment image.

Colin

Happy New Year.   Just back from a trip to Germany and ready to tackle the New Year with some big event and corporate photography in Edinburgh over the next week or two and some newspaper photography in Midlothian, Scotland.  As an event photographer in Edinburgh, things start to pick up at the end January as people come out of their festive slumber and I am looking forward to some conference photography in Scotland.  I will leave you with an infrared photograph taken in snow filled Germany.  I rather like the way the snow has come out in infrared.

 

Anyway, until next time.

Corporate and Event Photographer Top 5 Hints and for Gear Preperation for Beginners https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/corporate-and-event-photographer-top-5-hints-and-for-gear-preperation-for-beginners Hi Everyone

 

As its the holiday season, and I am normally a freelance corporate and event photographer out and about in Edinburgh or Scotland, I figured today would be a good time to do a short post looking at the important, but often slightly boring issue of preparing your gear for event photoshoots.  Why is this important, because, after your skills as a photographer, or probably even more important, is that you must ensure nothing can go wrong on the day.  If you lose all your photos you may as well leave the country, due to the long term effect on your reputation

Anyway here are my top 5 preparation tips

1. Have at least two of everything, this includes flash cameras, a choice of lenses.  Every bit of equipment is capable of failing.  It goes without saying you will need loads of batteries, chargers etc. 

2. Check your settings and have them all prepared the day before, you may have time to arrange for replacements if anything goes wrong.  If you have a dual card slot in you camera, use it. This once saved my life at a conference photography event in Edinburgh when one of the cards broke when I took it out after a full days shooting.  Oh and make sure you change the settings on your camera to record to both cards

3. This may sound obvious but as an experienced outdoor photographer in Scotland , prepare all your waterproof clothing etc the day before.  Don't be fooled by the seasons, this is Scotland after all.  I photograph supercar events around Edinburgh and East Lothian and we had better weather in November and December than in July and August.  Remember rain is the enemy protect your camera and yourself.  7 hours in the rain can effect your sanity and health - be prepared

4. Make a list of things you need and tick it off.  It is so easy to forget one crucial item.  If you forget a lens cloth or a flash diffuser for instance it could have a profound effect on your photos

5. Gauge the equipment you need for each job and make sure you take only what you need.  This also helps you to visualise what you intend to do on the day, in addition to ensuring you don't take too much gear.  I am getting on in the years now and don't want back trouble due to taking too much gear on the job.  It also makes it easier to find the correct equipment when you need it, without getting into a flap

Anyway hope this helps.  I am of to do some infrared photography in Scotland next week and some newspaper photography in Midlothian, as well as an equine photoshoot in January.  See you soon and have a good new year

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Christmas Photos, Bungee Jumping and Beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/christmas-photos-bungee-jumping-and-beyond Hi All

 

In the preparation for Christmas, I have had a wide range of event photography commissions in Scotland this week.  As a corporate photographer in and around Scotland, I had some conference photography in Edinburgh and newspaper photography in Midlothian.  As promised a bungee jumping photo is attached, thanks to UK Bungee for a great couple of days out in Glasgow last week.  Like everyone, at this time of year we evaluate our goals and aims and plan our new targets for next year.  I have had my best year for a while and for that I would like to thank Business Gateway for assisting me in my digital strategy and to all my customers, in particular, NHS Education for Scotland, Big Bang Promotions and Johnston Press.  As an event photographer in Edinburgh, I have had the opportunity to participate in a wide range of corporate and sports commissions and it has been a very enjoyable year. I also had a very rewarding Infrared Photography in Scotland exhibition this year.  So if variety is the spice of life, I have definitely had a spicy year

 

Until next time, all the best and have a great Christmas

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Bungee Jumping, Corporate Photography in Edinburgh and beyond https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/bungee-jumping-corporate-photography-in-edinburgh-and-beyond Hi All

 

Just recovering from some event photography, Glasgow, after an extremely enjoyable weekend photographing bungee jumpers at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow.  The weather held out well and a great time was had by all.  A short corporate event photography commission in Edinburgh before Christmas and some infrared photography in Edinburgh at the weekend.  So keeping busy in the lead up to the festive season.

Event photography takes in a variety of disciplines and can include photographing a conference in Edinburgh, a Historic Scotland battle re-enactment in Linlithgow, supercar event in Scotland, or a bungee jumping event in Scotland, but for all photographers, the most important element for all events is don't miss the moment and this is the message for the week.  Next week a more detailed more detailed article on a day in the life of a sports event photographer.

The photo attached is from the aftermath of a New Year party event in Germany

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin

Introduction to Infrared Photography, my top five tips https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/introduction-to-infrared-photography-my-top-five-tips Top Five Tips - Introduction to Infrared Photography

 

With the lead up to Christmas now in full swing and my corporate photography commissions in Edinburgh winding down for the holiday period, I have decided to concentrate on infrared photography for this blog.  This week has been fairly busy mind you, with a conference photography commission in Edinburgh last week, probably the last one of 2016 and some newspaper photography in the Lothian area at the weekend and some event photography in Glasgow, with a bungee jumping at the transport museum this weekend.

 

Anyway back to the subject of the day.  Infrared photography can be very complex and there are a number of myths surrounding it, so as part of my regular blog, I aim to do a number of articles to help people starting out, in what is a fascinating photographic genre.  Today, I am going to concentrate on some basic issues before we go onto the technical stuff in later blogs - anyway, most of you know my opinion on photography, which is that it is 95% visionary and 5% technical.  so here are the five tips for the day.

 

1.  The easiest and best way to take infrared photographs in the digital age is to have a camera converted, this can cost form £250.00 - £300.00 depending on the model of the camera.  Having said this, to get an understanding of infrared, it wouldn't do any harm to practice with an non-converted camera first using a filter and long exposures.  I like to hand hold when I shoot infrared, so I prefer using a converted camera.

2. You can shoot infrared all year round, not just in the summer.  Although your time is limited due to lack of light, all you need is some sunshine and I am sitting here now in December with the sun splitting through my window.  You wont get the white tree effect to the same extent as spring and summer, but you can still catch blue sky and clouds, the light can also be very contrasty, which is good for infrared and it will force you to look for other subjects, ie metal can produce interesting infrared pictures, as shown in my scrapyard shots in the attached link http://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/p304082559

3. You don't need an expensive camera to produce good infrared results.  I use a small Lumix camera with relatively inexpensive lenses for infrared, partly because I want to carry my gear around with me all the time and I also think the smaller newer cameras are better suited for infrared conversion, with the results often better than larger DSLR bodies.  The other weird thing about infrared (and I cant really explain the reason) is that often the cheaper lenses perform better than more expensive ones.

4. Experiment, if you can shoot hand held and the sun is out, don't just take the clichéd white tree and sky shots, photograph people, cars, animals etc. The effects you get can often be unique and can set you apart from the crowd

5. You will need some software experience.  Photoshop preferably if you are shooting colour infrared, although for black and white, all you need to do is to convert to black and white and tweak the contrast, brightness etc.  Obviously you could write a book on software editing for infrared, but that is a brief starting summary.

 

Anyway, enjoy, more to come soon

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Event and Sports Photography and more Corporate Photography, East Lothian, Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/event-and-sports-photography-and-more-corporate-photography-east-lothian-scotland Hi Everyone

 

Another busy week out and about, with some corporate photography in Edinburgh and Newspaper photography with some sports photography in Midlothian.  Well done to Bonnyrigg Rose for their draw with Dumbarton in the Scottish Cup, good luck with the replay. As an event photographer in Scotland at this time of year there is usually a mad rush for conferences and events before the last few weeks prior to Christmas.  I have a conference next week and then its mostly event photography in Glasgow, Scotland, with bungee jumping at the transport museum in Glasgow coming up soon.  Will I take the plunge myself - not so sure, the jury is out on that one, maybe 20 years ago.  I managed a few last gasp infrared photos at the weekend, still some opportunities when you get sun and cloud and Edinburgh at this time of year is as good as anywhere.

 

To finish of today, I have decided to break the mould include a non-business photo and attach a personal image of my daughter on a trampoline at North Berwick, to demonstrate the importance of always carrying a camera.

 

Until next time, all the best

 

Kind Regards

Top 5 Tips for a Conference Photographer https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/top-5-tips-for-a-conference-photographer Hi All

 

Just back from some newspaper photography in Midlothian, Scotland and a corporate conference photoshoot in Edinburgh, so I thought I would stick with the Corporate Photography theme for now.  As a conference photographer in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I have a certain routine and there are a few "must do" aspects that are key to all jobs.  The list below could apply to corporate photographers and general event photography, but, as a specialist conference photographer in Scotland, I have tailored it a bit for business conferences.  So here we go:-

1. Prepare in advance.  This may seem obvious but the pre-event preparation is essential, take plenty of charged batteries, more than twice you will require, for flash, cameras etc.  Always prepare your back up equipment, yes, that means 2 of everything and make sure it is all working.  It never fails to amaze me when I see a photographer with one flash or camera.  Check location, access, parking traffic.  Do all this a few days before, to give yourself plenty of time if something isnt working.  Think of the worst thing that could happen on your journey ie car breaking down, train delay and leave in plenty of time.  You can be late for your own wedding, but you cannot be late for a photography commission

2. Record to multiple cards   If your camera has this facility, make use of it, cards can suddenly stopped working and imagine losing a days work.  If you don't have this facility, don't use one card all day, switch cards, so in the unlikely event of one not working, it wouldn't be the end of the world, especially if you are using 2 cameras.  Lose a whole days work and you may as well leave the country.  If you are staying overnight, you should always back up your work on a laptop or other device

3.  Find out what you can and cant do in advance   Always check with the event organiser if the delegates are OK with flash usage, or if anyone has objected to their photo being taken at the event.  When you get there, although there is a temptation to bang away on the flash, do it sparingly and not for the full duration of the speaker's presentation.  Also try to gauge the atmosphere from both the speaker and the crowd and give them some peace, if you feel that's what they want at that time.  This also applies to workshops.  Get the balance right.  You must deliver great images for the clients, but it wont help your business if the delegates complain

4. Lenses to Use  This is a personal thing, but I use a 28-70mm most of the time, with a 70-200mm for longer shots.  During workshops I tend to use a smaller mirrorless camera, so I can keep in the background, without disturbing the participants.  Dont walk about looking like a paparazzi, with large lenses and multiple cameras, this wont go down well at conferences.  There are other lenses you can use, but there is no point in going over the top.   Try to keep in the background as much as you can

5. Get both Standard and Creative Images on the day  First and foremost, make sure you get the standard images the client has asked for ie the speakers, any group shots, networking etc.  But after that, try different angles, move about, catch people networking, just at the right moment, when they are animated and enthusiastic.  Set you camera on a tripod and get some motion photos.  The scope is endless

Anyway, hope this has helped

Until next time

Regards

Colin

Corporate Photography in Scotland and more Motorsport Event Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/corporate-photography-in-scotland-and-more-motorsport-event-photography Hi All

 

A good week with another very enjoyable NHS Education for Scotland training corporate event photography commission in Edinburgh at the COSLA offices. Some interesting workshops and lots of scope for creative photographs.  Thanks again to the NES staff for their help and making me feel welcome.  I had my last motorsport photography event in Lochgelly, Scotland, until the new season next year.  We were incredibly lucky with the weather once again for November, with no rain for 2 days, pretty cold mind you on friday, but I can live with that.  I have attached a photo from a previous motorsport event at East Fortune from last week.

 

This is a busy time for me with conference photography in Edinburgh and Scotland and these events keep me going until Christmas.  Each year, I enjoy the challenge of event photography and as a specialist corporate event photographer in Scotland, I am always on the lookout for fresh ideas, angles and perspectives. I really enjoy conference photography and each one is different.  I am off to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) in Edinburgh on tuesday, with more newspaper photography in Midlothian Scotland at the weekend.  Still a few trees left and decent light for the ocassional infrared photography in Scotland, but the light is fading fast.

 

Anyway, until next time

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Event Photography, Scotland and Corporate Photography in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/event-photography-scotland-and-corporate-photography-in-edinburgh Hi All

 

The end of another busy week, with some motor sports photography in East Fortune, Scotlandcold but fairly good weather for November.  Also, a commercial event photographer in Scotland, I attended a conference in Edinburgh.  Next week is much about the same with more motorsport photography, this time in Fife.  I am reducing the amount of infrared photography in Scotland, at this time of year for weather considerations, although I will still continue.  There are always infrared subjects to photograph all year round , when the sun shines.

 

This week, I am away to a conference in Edinburgh with NHS Education for Scotland, always good to see the guys again at 102 West Port.  As a specialist conference photographer in Scotland, I thrive on regular events, especially in locations I am familiar wit and I used to work in the building I will visit on thursday.

 

Anyway, until next time, I will leave you with a commercial corporate photography photograph, taken last year in Manchester.

 

All the best.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

As an event photographer in Scotland, I have a varied timetable.  This week I was at a corporate conference in Edinburgh, great to meet my friends at NHS Education for Scotland again and an enjoyable day was had at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.  I am off to a supercar event on friday and saturday and I have some conference photography in Edinburgh a few days later.  Last week I had a very enjoyable presentation on seascape photography at North Berwick Camera club.  I am not a natural public speaker but it was an an informal and relaxed evening and I hope the members learned something from my brief presentation.  i also gave a short talk on my infrared photography in Scotland.  Finally, I ended the week with some newspaper/PR photography in Midlothian.  It was a good day, ending with a good photo of the Bonnyrigg Rose equaliser in their cup match, and I have attached this sports photography image to this blog.

 

Also looking forrward to some wedidng photography in Edinburgh next week.

 

Until next time

A busy week again, with the last few shots of infrared photography in Scotland, utilising the leaves on the trees while we still have them, although I will still find plenty of subjects for infrared photos in the winter., a recent infrared photos is attached.  I was at a supercar event at Lochgelly, photographing fast cars on friday and saturday, I even had a scary ride as a passenger on a Lotus, maybe I will post a video of me looking terrified.  Of to Edinburgh for a corporate photography conference event on thursday for NHS Education for Scotland, looking forward to that.  Then I will be attending North Berwick Camera club to give a presentation on seascape photography.  I am particularly looking forward to this and very grateful to the club for inviting me. As a wedding photographer in Scotland, the week finishes with a wedding in East Lothian, then some newspaper photography in Midlothian on saturday.

 

Until next time, all the best.

Another very busy week, ending in some newspaper photography in Scotland for the Midlothian Advertiser, photo attached from a heated junior game between Arniston Rangers and Armadale Thistle, well done Arniston, good result, keep it up. I have a big corporate event photography photoshoot in Edinburgh for NHS Education for Scotland at Murrayfield Stadium, followed by a seascape photography talk at North Berwick camera club, which I am looking forward to.  It keeps you alive and on your toes when you are able to photograph different photographic disciplines and its always an honour to be asked to speak about your creative work, thanks to North Berwick Camera Club for inviting me.

 

As a corporate event photographer in Scotland I am always trying to introduce new angles to my service and I now offer the possibility of some corporate infrared photography within all my event photography Scotland commissions, weather permitting of course.

 

Finally I am away to photograph some supercars at the weekend in Lochgely, Fife

 

Until next time, see you soon

 

Kind Regards

Supercar and Corporate Photography in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/10/supercar-and-corporate-photography-in-edinburgh Corporate Photography, Edinburgh

 

Hi Everyone

 

A busy week ending in a three day supercar event, with some corporate photography in Edinburgh, Scotland earlier on in the week.  I will be doing some newspaper photography at the weekend and as an event photographer, Edinburgh, more supercar photography next week at Lochgelly in Fife.  The supercar events are long but also good fun.  Its hard work, but there are plenty opportunities to improve your sports photographer skills and a good chance you will get practice in all weather conditions.  The company also do corporate supercar events and I am looking forward, as an active event photographer in Edinburgh, to combining my conference photographer skills with some sports work.  The location at East Fortune is just opposite the National museum of flight and I attach an infrared photography Scotland image taken in between shooting cars.

Wedding Photography Edinburgh

 

Anyway that enough for one week, some wedding photography, Edinburgh at the weekend also, so, busy busy, busy.

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

Event photographer in Scotland plus more infrared photography, Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/10/event-photographer-in-scotland-plus-more-infrared-photography-edinburgh Hi Everyone

 

Another busy week, with some corporate photography, Edinburgh, also as an event photographer in Scotland, I had a very enjoyable commission at Haddington, East Lothian for a 50th birthday party celebration event at the weekend.   Also this week, I have been taking some infrared photos in Edinburgh, one of them attached.  As an infrared photographer in Scotland, I am trying to capture the last bit of sunshine as we approach autumn.  When the sunlight goes, so does the ability to  photograph infrared images, although it is always possible on a sunny afternoon even in winter, however we will lose that green tree, snow white infrared effect as the leaves begin to drop mind you, but this just makes it even more important to find other infrared options ie metallic subject matter and utilising the contrasty skies we have in this part of the world.

 

I have a busy time ahead, with some conference photography in Edinburgh and as a wedding photographer in Edinburgh, I also have an event in Edinburgh before the weekend, followed by some supercar photography at the end of the week.

 

So until next time, all the best.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate and Newspaper Photography in Scotland https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/corporate-and-newspaper-photography-in-scotland Hi Everyone

 

I have had a very busy week with a bit of everything going on.  Firstly some corporate photography in Glasgow on tuesday, then some infrared photography around Scotland, finishing with newspaper photography at the weekend with the Midlothian Advertiser, with some interesting football and rugby photography, photo attached from the Penicuik Athletic v Kelty Hearts junior football game.   This week I have more conference photography in Edinburgh and a birthday party event photography photoshoot at East Lothian.  As a wedding photographer in Edinburgh, I am always looking for new angles and things to introduce and I now offer infrared wedding photography as part of my service.  It just adds that something extra and special for the couple (weather permitting of course as dull rainy days dont work).  The last wedding I photographed in East Lothian, I produced some different artistic imagery in infrared, which the wedding couple were very pleased with.  

Just to let you know, there will be some updates to my www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk website in the near future, to improve the design and user friendliness of the site.  So anyway, until next time, got to rush, as I am of to a corporate photography Edinburgh photoshoot.

 

Kind Regards

A very busy week, hence the late blog.  The end of last week and this week, I was involved in an enjoyable 3 day motor shoot event photography at East Fortune, Scotland.  The weather was great, I got a bit burnt and the cars were cool.  On the final day, there was a charity event organised by secondary school children in aid of the school, photo attached, a great day was had by all.  As a wedding photographer in Scotland, I have a wedding coming up in Edinburgh and I had some corporate photography in Glasgow, with a company called Encompass, thanks to Alex Ford for getting in touch with me for this one.  Next week, more conference photography in Edinburgh and some newspaper photography at the weekend.  Also, well done to all the students at Dunbar Grammar for their success in the Awards ceremony last week, that I photographed for the East Lothian Courier. 

 

See you all soon

 

Kind Regards

A busy week last week and a busy one to come, with a corporate photography shoot coming up and some event photography just outside Edinburgh.  As a wedding photographer in Edinburgh and the Lothians, I am always on the lookout for different venues and I photographed a wedding at Harvest Moon, East Lothian at the weekend.  This is easily one of the most enchanting venues for a wedding, with the wonderful East Lothian landscape and surrounded by forests and treehouses, it doesnt get much better than this and we had good weather and a lovely couple with Maureen and Luka.  As a Scottish infrared photographer, I couldnt resist the temptation to take a few shots in infrared and I have attached one to this blog.  

 

Later this week, supercars and corporate conference photography in Glasgow.  As conference photography in Edinburgh is one of my main specialisms, I also have a corporate photography event in the centre of Edinburgh this week

 

Anyway until next time

 

Kind Regards

A good week with a corporate photography commission in Glasgow and as an active conference photographer, Scotland, I am involved in a further corporate photography commission in Edinburgh next week.  I also have some wedding photography in East Lothian and as an active event photographer Scotland, it doesn't get any more active than bungee jumping in Glasgow next sunday.  However the main focus of the week is the wedding photography commission in East Lothian on Saturday, looking forward to it at Harvest Moon Tree Houses, Tyninghame, East Lothian.  It promises to be a great day. As a specialist infrared photographer, UK, I will leave you with a rather alternative infrared photograph from the location.
 


 

Until next time

Newspaper Photography Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/8/newspaper-photography-edinburgh-fringe-festival-2016 Hi Everyone

 

An interesting week last week and this week, so far. As an Edinburgh event photographer, I was out and about photographing a supercar event again last weekend.  The weather was a bit challenging but a good weekend was had again.  Since then I have been using my new infrared camera.  As an active infrared photographer in Scotland, I am regularly out and about and some of you will be aware that I had an accident and lost my camera after slipping on seaweed at Cove Bay, nearly broke my arm as well, but that's another story.  I now have the newly converted camera and its been great fun trying it out, expect more colour infrared photography around Scotland and the UK.  Some new infrared photos from the Edinburgh Festival on the site at www.colinwrightphotogrpahy.co.uk

 

I was at an interesting photocall yesterday for a great company at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the opening of Romana Soutas, Hyena at Paradise Palms, Lothian Street, Edinburgh, for a New York theatre company, check out their website at www.hyenatheplay.com. In addition to the main indoor images, I also took some infrared photographs, one attached to this blog.  I have some corporate and PR photography in Edinburgh coming up, with some conference photography in Scotland and as a wedding photographer, we are entering the end of the busy period, with a wedding in about two weeks time in East Lothian.  Also some newspaper photography at the weekend, where I will continue my journey as a sports photographer in Edinburgh and Midlothian.

 

Anyway, until next time.

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Another busy week, with some newspaper photography and a bit of corporate and conference photography, but most of the week has involved event photography in and around Edinburgh, photographing supercars at Lochgelly Racecourse.  A very tiring but enjoyable 3 days motorsport photography, with good weather most of time.  These photoshoots present photographers with challenges, usually the light and the weather, but the main one is the need to ensure the driver is recognisable, in addition to getting the correct exposure for the car.  More motorsport photography at East Fortune at the weekend.  Also as a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, I have a photoshoot next week, maybe get them outdoors for a group shot if the weather is OK.
 


 

Anyway, until next time I will leave you with a photo I took recently, cant neglect the infrared photography during busy times, especially with this weather.
 


 

Speak soon.

Newspaper and Corporate portrait photographer Edinburgh and the Lothian https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/8/newspaper-and-corporate-portrait-photographer-edinburgh-and-the-lothian Hi Everyone

 

I was out and about at the weekend, some good newspaper photography assignments.  I had a photoshoot at Danderhall for Keryn Mathew, who is a finalist for the Miss Scotland competition for the Midlothian Advertiser.  Keryn was very comfortable in front of the camera and I wish her all the best in the competition, photo attached.  Also as a sports photographer, the junior season is up and running a couple of good games at Bonnyrigg and Easthouses Lily, although both teams may want to forget the results. I have some corporate photography, Edinburgh during the week and as an event photographer in Edinburgh and Lothian, things are hotting up with a Supercar event at the end of the week.  Also as a wedding photographer, Edinburgh, I will be preparing for a wedding at the beginning of September.

 

Anyway, until next time

This Week - Newspaper Photography and Corporate Photographer in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/7/this-week---newspaper-photography-and-corporate-photographer-in-edinburgh Hi All
 


 

Another busy week with an event photography photoshoot in Edinburgh and as an active wedding photographer in Edinburgh, I also photographed a wedding in East Lothian.  However, I will focus on newspaper photography today and I was out and about in Midlothian on Saturday for the Midlothian Advertiser.  Any sports photographer will tell you they are glad when the new football season starts and I covered a couple of pre-season friendly games at the weekend.  I even made a trip to Musselburgh to cover the Musselburgh Athletic v Arniston Rangers game, well done Arniston, its a good sign for the new season that they can beat a side of the calibre of Musselburgh. However the photo I have attached today is from the Whitehill Welfare v East Kilbride game.   Look forward to more sports photography soon, also a some conference photography in Edinburgh next week.
 


 

Anyway, until next time

As an event photographer in Scotland, I thought I would let you see a photo taken at the East Fortune Airshow, East Lothian on saturday.  The weather was nothing great, but always happy to see the Red Arrows, especially from a view like Traprain Law, East Lothian.  This week, just getting back to normal after my holidays.  As a conference photographer Edinburgh, I have a corporate photography commission this week in the big smoke and off to Glasgow for a conference photography commission the following week.   Lots of events, including more work as a wedding photographer in Scotland the following week, some newspaper photography and more, so things are getting busy.  There is also some new infrared photography Scotland on the website, taken at Argyll last week.

 

Anyway must go some infrared photography beckons (or maybe not, go away clouds).

 

Until next time

 

Kind Regards

A bit late with the blog as I am on holiday.  Just returned from a trip to Argyll and I managed to get some landscape infrared photography on the island of Kerrara near Oban, one of them is attached.  Just before the holiday season I had a good portrait photoshoot in Dunbar and I have a few conference photography in Edinburgh commissions coming up.  As a corporate photographer Edinburgh, you have to be ready for a variety of conference photography commissions and the summer is no exception.

Another busy week, with some newspaper photography, following the Brexit vote last week, I was down at the parliament snapping away.  More conference photography and as a busy Edinburgh photographer, I also had a corporate photography commission in Edinburgh.  One of the highlights this week was a Historic Scotland event at Linlithgow Palace and this is the image I have left you with.  A good day was had by all, even with the rain.  Talking about water, I had an accident whilst on a fine art infrared photography photoshoot at Cove Bay in the Borders, I slipped on seaweed and fell and injured my arm and wrote off an infrared camera.  Never mind, all in the name of art and I did get some good shots
 


 

This week, I will be back to being a corporate photographer Scotland, out and about for some corporate photography Edinburgh at the beginning of next week and off to Oban for a short break (with my camera of course)
 


 

Until next time

Infrared Photography in Scotland this week https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/6/infrared-photography-in-scotland-this-week Hi All

 

A quick blog this week.  Due to the fog the weather has not been good in the east of Scotland for infrared photography, but an infrared photographer never gives in and I have been talking some infrared shots in East Lothian in the few moments when the sun was out.  My next project will be corporate infrared photography, combining my architecture photography skills with infrared photography.  Infrared photography in Scotland gives us all lots of opportunities and I can't wait to explore further.

 

Anyway, until ne t time, I will leave you with an infrared photograph from Haddington, East Lothian

 

Kind Regards

Another busy week for a corporate photographer in Edinburgh.  I had a good conference photography commission last week in Edinburgh, followed by a Motorsport photoshot at East Fortune in East Lothian.  Really awful weather on Friday, but we all made the best of it, we have a good team at ThrillPic and it was a good weekend.  On Saturday the weather picked up and it was a good day.  This week I will be doing some bungee jumping photography and also newspaper photography on Saturday.  As an Edinburgh photographer, specialising in conference photography Edinburgh, I am looking forward to some corporate outdoor architecture photography commissions, utilising the late night light at the golden time of day.  I also hope to combine this with some infrared corporate photography.  Let's hope for some good weather at the weekend as I will be outdoors all the time.

 

I will leave you with a conference photography photo at an event in Dunbar

 

Anyway, until next time

Commercial Photographer Scotland. Corporate and Event Photography in Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/6/commercial-photographer-scotland-corporate-and-event-photography-in-edinburgh Hi All
 


 

As a commercial photographer in Edinburgh who regularly photographs conferences and events in Scotland, it is nice every now and again to get a happy event, one that's a bit different to wedding photography.  At the weekend, I photographed a 60th birthday celebration event at the Scottish National Galleries restaurant in Edinburgh.  A great day was had by all and I already knew some of the guests, having previously done corporate photography commissions for them in the past.  its always easier to photograph people when you know them and when you are made to feel welcome, which I certainly was.  There are no photos to show yet, but hopefully some later on.  In addition to corporate photography in Edinburgh, I was also out and about and as an infrared photographer in Scotland last week, the weather has been pretty good (until the last few misty days), so I will leave you with a landscape/infrared image from Flotterstone, Midlothian, just outside Edinburgh.  This week some event photography in Scotland, newspaper photography and as a wedding photographer in Edinburgh, I am starting to get busy with weddings in East Lothian and Edinburgh.
 


 

See you all soon

As its getting hotter out there, I am hoping for more outdoor newspaper photography, gala days and sports photography.  However, as a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, there is always scope for corporate photography at company retreat events and for group shots at Edinburgh conferences.  I actually may have a free weekend for the first time in two months, due to an event cancellation, so I will be out and about capturing some infrared photography images and some Scottish landscape photographer shots.  In addition to recent conference photography, Edinburgh, I photographed some surfers at Belhaven Bay, photo attached.  I will also be attending some event photography in East Lothian at the weekend and hope to do some architecture photography in Edinburgh at the beginning of the week.
 


 

So on that note, catch you soon

Another busy week, finishing with some newspaper sports photography in Midlothian, Scotland, well done Arniston Rangers, a dramatic comeback and victory at the weekend, also a well attended derby between Bonnyrigg Rose and Penicuik.  But as a corporate photographer in Edinburgh and Scotland, I thought I would leave you with an image from a very interesting commercial photographer, Scotland photoshoot I did for Scottish Enterprise last year, it involved a visit to Loch Fyne Oysters in Argyll, Scotland, involving a famous Chinese celebrity chef and journalists from China.  We followed the process from start to finish from catching the oysters, to the treatment at Loch Fyne and finally a lovely feast at the end.  As a regular conference photographer in Edinburgh, it is good to get out and about for commercial photoshoots in Scotland and this was certainly one of the more enjoyable corporate photography Scotland photoshoots.
 


 

Until next time

A very busy week with a real variety of photography involved.  As an active corporate and conference photographer in Edinburgh, it was a delight to be asked to photograph the Restaurant magazine meeting at the Pompadour by Galvin, Princes St, Edinburgh EH1 2AB.  The meeting was attended by some of the top chefs and restaurant owners in Edinburgh and was very interesting to listen to, in addition to the photography. The week ended with some interesting newspaper photography, with some great sports photography, particularly at the Newtongrange Star game, see attached photo of goal and a very moving 70th Anniversary celebration at Rosewell Church, looking forward to seeing the photos in the advertiser this week.  Lots of conference photographer work to come this week.  Corporate photographers need to keep an open mind to the type of work we do and I am enjoying the variety of conference photography in Scotland.  Finally the last couple of days, Monday 16th May being the final day, of my infrared photography in Scotland exhibition "The World in Infrared"

A very busy week with my infrared photography exhibition in Scotland continuing for a little longer at Cockenzie House, East Lothian, entitled "The World in Infrared".  Drop in and see it, I am sure will enjoy, its now on until Saturday 14th May. 
 

As a conference photographer in Edinburgh, I have had a very busy week with the NHS Education for Scotland Medical conference in Edinburgh.  Corporate photography in Edinburgh is my specialism and I enjoyed this high profile event at the EICC in Edinburgh.  One of the guests was the former bodyguard of Nelson Mandela and UNICEF Ambassador, Chris Lubbe.  One of the most interesting and charismatic talks I have heard at a conference.  Normally I just concentrate on the photography and often fail to hear the speaker, but this time I was captivated, a photo is attached.  To finish of the week I had a lovely wedding in East Lothian, of Christine and Chris, great day and we even managed to avoid the rain, but not the cold
 


 

All the best and until next time

A busy week again.  My Infrared photography exhibition in Scotland "The World in Infrared" is continuing at Cockenzie House, East Lothian.  I was out with the newspaper at the weekend, as a sports photographer in Scotland, it always good to get some games to photograph at this point in the season when there is usually everything to pay for.  That was the case at the Easthouses Lily game at the weekend, photo attached.  I also have some wedding photography in East Lothian at the weekend and as a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, I also have some conference photography in Edinburgh with NHS Education for Scotland this week.  Photographing conferences is often challenging but very enjoyable and I always enjoy working with the Communications team at NHS Education for Scotland.  So this is corporate photographer in Edinburgh week.  See you all soon

The main news this week was the successful launch of my infrared photography exhibition "The World in Infrared" last Friday at Cockenzie House and Gardens in East Lothian.  A great evening was had by all and I very much appreciate those who attended.  The exhibition runs from 23rd April 2016 for 2 weeks, all welcome to attend.   The photos include colour and black and white images from East Lothian and other locations in Scotland.
 


 

Some newspaper photography at the weekend, at the Penicuik Sevens and some football, a good day although it was freezing and I was dressed for summer.  As a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, I am very much looking forward to the 2 day medical conference in Edinburgh next week.  Conference photography is my specialism and I do enjoy it.  It also gives me the opportunity to meet my ex colleagues from NHS Education for Scotland.  To wrap up next week as an active wedding photographer in East Lothian, I also have a wedding in North Berwick

A very busy but enjoyable week.  As a wedding photographer in Edinburgh, the first main assignment of the week was a wedding in Dunbar, mixed weather but we had a good time and managed well on the day, thanks to the Rocks Bar for their help on the day, good to get the spring wedding photography season of to a start. On Saturday, I photographed bungee jumpers at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, great fun, maybe I will have a go next time (or maybe not).  Now I am preparing for my Infrared Photography Exhibition, called "The World in Infrared" which starts on 23rd April 2016 and runs for two weeks at Cockenzie House and Gardens, Cockenzie, East Lothian.  Just put the photos up, with a little bit of tweaking it will be ready on the day, all welcome to attend. Some newspaper photography to look forward to at the weekend.

A very busy but satisfying and rewarding week of conference photography Edinburgh and in Manchester for an excellent 2 day medical conference.  It was my first time to this thriving city and the length of the event enabled me to get some really creative conference images in low light.  Thanks to Shabeer Kolakkat for organising the event and for making me feel welcome and thanks to my fellow photographer Jason Kimmings for the recommendation.  Another corporate conference in Edinburgh to look forward to at Murrayfield stadium with NHS Education for Scotland on Thursday.  I really enjoy being a corporate photographer in Edinburgh and beyond and look forward to many more.  Corporate photography can me both rewarding and challenging.  The light is different in every venue, as are the restrictions in relation to using flash.  As corporate photographer in Scotland, I have also to be ware of the restrictions in frequency of photography, as you don't want to disrupt the event, but at the same time you must get excellent conference photographs at the end of the day.  Then there is the people aspect, you have to get on well with people as you will be right in their faces for a day or two.  Then you usually have fair amount of editing afterwards, but I love it and look forward to continuing as a conference photographer in Scotland for along time
 

Newspaper photography at the weekend, and as a wedding photographer in Edinburgh I have a wedding in Dunbar next week and Oh yes there is the small matter of my infrared photography exhibition: "The World in Infrared" on 23rd April 2016 for two weeks at Cockenzie House and Gardens, you are all welcome.
 


 

Until next time
 


 

Kind Regards

Corporate Photography Edinburgh https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/3/corporate-photography-edinburgh Hi All
 


 

A busy week or two for the corporate photographer in Edinburgh, just had a Dementia Champions conference at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh with NHS Education for Scotland, good to see you all again guys.  Next of to a medical conference in Manchester as a conference photographer Edinburgh, I am always looking for new and fresh techniques to apply and I am constantly changing, adapting and perfecting my technique.  I really enjoy corporate photography, it allows me to utilise all my photographic skills, including, event photography, portrait photography, architecture photography, interior photography and in a strange sort of way, sports photography, as it tends to be action packed and you need to be alert.  I also had a good weekends newspaper photography in Midlothian and I am still preparing for my Infrared Photography Scotland exhibition, which starts on 23rd April 2016, entitled "The World in Infrared".
 


 

Anyway, until next time, all the best.

A good weeks photography with a wedding on saturday and corporate photography in Edinburgh during the week.  I photographed a wedding at the Vu near Bathgate, the weather was challenging but the couple, Archie and Lee were great and a big thanks to all the staff at the venue for their help on the day. Lee looked great and had to cope with pretty difficult weather conditions, which she did well.  So if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Edinburgh or lothian, give me a call.  As a corporate photographer in Edinburgh, I am always glad to get commissions and had a good one at SYZ Asset Management for Scottish Enterprise last week, thanks to Derek Borthwick at SYZ for his enthusiasm during the photoshoot.  More newspaper photography at the weekend and some infrared I hope.

Photography in 2016 https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/1/photography-in-2016 Hi All

 

Happy New Year, sorry for the delay in blogging.  I have been away in Germany for a week or so.  Heard the weather has been awful at home, probably wouldn't have managed any infrared photography, but next week I am back on track with some newspaper photography and hopefully sports photography, weather permitted.  I also have corporate photography assignments and wedding photography in February.

In Germany New Year is celebrated big style with fireworks, in fact its like a battlefield, but I thought I would do something a little different.  After the fireworks, there is a real mess and I have attached a fine art photography photo depicting the scene after the celebrations (or battle).

 

Anyway speak soon

A fairly busy week just before Christmas, with some corporate photography in the borders and newspaper photography in Midlothian, good to see the games on, with a mighty clash between Newtongrange Starr and Linlithgow Rose, good to get some sports photography before Christmas. I was only there for 15 minutes but I managed to catch a goal, photo shown below.  I also managed some infrared photography in East Lothian at Dunbar Harbour.

 

Remember if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Scotland, give me a buzz, or contact me through the website.

Infrared Photography in Scotland and Stormy Weather https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/12/infrared-photography-in-scotland-and-stormy-weather Hi All

 

As a wedding photographer in Scotland, I am always hoping for some decent weather on the day, doesn't have to be wonderful, just not stormy and raining.  Well last Saturday, I experienced the most difficult weather conditions ever as a newspaper photographer in Scotland.  I was in Midlothian photographing the Christmas Lights ceremonies, most of the events were changed to indoors, but they all made the best of the situations and it is wonderful how people have strong local community spirit and determination in our towns and villages in Scotland.  As you know I am also an Infrared photographer photographing Scotland and East Lothian and I did manage to get a few photos taken.  I will leave you with the attached shot of Belhaven Bay in Dunbar.

 

Until the next time

Another busy week and back down to reality after 4 days at the European Taekwondo Championships.  Some interesting corporate photography at a conference for NHS Education for Scotland, good to see all my old colleagues at NES.  Also, a good weekend of newspaper photography in East and Midlothian, which ended with an exciting junior cup game between Newtongrange Star and Petershill, which went to penalties.   Lots to look forward to, with more newspaper photography, infrared photography and a winter wedding later this month.

Just back from a very enjoyable 4 day sports photography photoshoot at the European Taekwondo Championships at Ravenscraig, Motherwell.  Fascinating subject to photograph and a good time was had by myself and the great bunch of photographers involved in the shoot.  I have photographed judo before but this was a new experience for me and I loved it.  There was a good atmosphere at the event and I plan to add a new folder to my website with a collection on images from the tournament.
 


 

This weekend, some newspaper photography to look forward to and before that, a corporate photoshoot on Wednesday with NHS Education for Scotland.
 


 

Catch you soon.

Photography, Corporate and Newspaper and PR https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2015/5/photography-corporate-and-newspaper-and-pr Hello
 

A quick blog this week during a very busy period, which has included newspaper photography in East Lothian and Midlothian (mostly sports photography), some infrared images in Edinburgh and corporate photography.  Its the start of the cricket season, so I have included a cricket image from the Preston Village v Edinburgh CC game at the weekend.  Last week I photographed a conference at the Beardmore Conference Centre, one of the speakers included a guy called Chris Moon, who did a very entertaining and brilliant motivational presentation.  Often when I am involved in corporate photography, I don't really hear the content of the speakers, but this particular one was superb.  Anyway, speak soon and take care

After photographing the wedding of my friends Deborah and Derek a couple of weeks ago (great day by the way) it was back to normal with some newspaper photography in East and Midlothian.  Mixed fortunes for Dunbar, with a resounding 8-2 victory by Dunbar United in the football and a win for North Berwick in the rubgy against Dunbar, all happening in mixed weather, either boiling hot or pouring with rain and cold (Scotland you cant beat it)

 

See you all soon

Photography this week https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/photography-this-week Hi Everyone

 

Just an update on the last week or two, pretty busy with some sport, newspaper photography and general landscape shots at Dunbar.  I also attended the Royal Photographic Society Annual Exhibition, which was wonderful as usual, although a bit disappointed at the lack of foreign entries, maybe there are so many exhibitions nowadays.  I am almost finished my Scapyard Project, I just want to get another location to add a bit to the collection, so I imagine I will try some photography in Edinburgh.  One magazine has already published an image and I am looking to exhibit soon - watch this space.  The football season is in full swing now and I attach a photo from a recent Dunbar United game against Livingston.  Speak to you all soon

 

Kind Regards

Portrait, Architecture and Sport https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/2/portrait-architecture-and-sport Hi All

 

This week some portrait, sport and architecture in Edinburgh and East Lothian.  The weather played havoc with some of the sport as usual.  Seems like my photos from the Dunbar Haddington game have caused a bit of a stir.  As I said in Facebook, I only photograph what happens on the field and I do try to be impartial, even though I live in Dunbar.  The Dunbar website has some photos showing both sides of the coin, one was as bad as the other in my opinion, handbags.

 

Anyway this week more sport with the newspaper, then the build up to the Scotland Rugby game a week on saturday.

 

If you get a chance pop along to the exhibition at the Bleechingfield Centre in Dunbar where I have a few photos on display at the Belhaven Bridge exhibition.

 

An old photos from a Dunbar game a few years ago is shown with this post, see if you can recognise when and where it was taken

 

All the best

A bit late this week, lots on, some interesting photography last week, some portait photography at the weekend and then a fairly wild sports photography session at the end of the Dunbar Haddington game (the photo shows the tackle the sparked off all the trouble at the end) .  At the beginning of the week some interesting corporate photography, with some very animated speakers.

A lot on next week, hoping to get to the Scotland Ireland rugby game as an accredited photographer

See you all soon

Sports and Corporate Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/12/sports-and-corporate-photography Hi

 

Another week of sports and corporate photography.  I was at the Scottish Parliament for a photoshoot, cool building on the inside, petty about the outside, but I suppose its a matter of opinion

 

Dunbar v West Calder was the only junior game on in Lothian, so I popped along, pretty cold, but a good game, Dunbar came away with a resounding 3 - 0 victory, well done guys.  I managed to catch all the key moments.  There is a picture of a penalty incident attached

 

See you all soon

This weeks photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/11/this-weeks-photography Hi Everyone

 

A bit later with the blog today, been pretty busy this week

 

Lots of urban and architecture photography in Edinburgh, football with the Dunbar Haddington derby and a corporate NHS conference in Clydebank, near Glasgow which I had to travel to from Dunbar without my car and all my gear - challenging, but I managed.

 

This week more Edinburgh photos and a shift at the newspaper and lots of conference stuff next week

 

See you

 

Col

Newspaper and Conference Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/11/newspaper-and-conference-photography Hello again

A busy week, two days working for the East Lothian News and the Midlothian Advertiser, lots of sports photography, including the Bonnyrigg Rose v Brehan Scottish Cup game.  Pity about the result, never mind Bonnyrigg, at least you had the experience of playing at that level.  I was also involved in photographing some moving Armistice events in East Lothian and Midlothian at the weekend.  Plenty corporate photography also, with a Dental conference on wednesday

 

Anyway see you all soon

 

Kind Regards

 

Colin

Corporate and Newspaper Photography https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/11/conference-and-newspaper-photography Hello everyone

 

Busy week photographing conferences and newspaper assignments

 

I was at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow on Sunday for an Optometry conference.  There was a fascinating presentation from an airline pilot on the effect of pilot error on plane crashes in the 70s and 80s.  Normally I take the photos and  stop listening, but this time I was enthralled.  More corporate conference photography on wednesday with NHS Education for Scotland and two newspaper shifts at the weekend, which will involve some sports photography I imagine. 

Anyway, busy busy busy, speak to you all soon

 

Regards

Sports Photography at the Weekend https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/10/sports-photography-at-the-weekend Hello Everyone

I managed to photograph a full football game on saturday, during a sports photography session at the Dunbar v Tayport cup game.  A difficult game for Dunbar, as Tayport were clearly the better team, Dunbar had hard luck and deserved at least a couple of goals.  I will be doing some portrait photography at during the week and corporate photography on sunday at the Beardmore Conference Centre, Clydebank.  I will also be adding to by urban photography collection, with some more arcitecture photography images from Edinburgh.

Speak to you soon

Cheers

 

Colin

Newspaper Photography - 20th October 2012 https://www.colinwrightphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/10/newspaper-photography---20th-october-2012 Theatre Photography, Midlothian

 

Hello Everyone

 

This week I am going to talk briefly about one of my assignments at the weekend, in addtion to PR photography and sports photography (football and rugby), I had the pleasure of photographing a play entitled A Midlothian Night's Dream at Dalkeith Country Park.  This play funded and produced by the Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh, was a deightful youth theatre production based on A Midsummer Night's Dream.  It was a joy to photograph, with lots of enthusiastic performances in a great setting.  Hope you like the photograph I have posted.  Look out for some photos in the Midlothian Advertiser soon. 

 

See you all soon

Regards

Colin
