Taking Care During Lockdown for Professional Photographers in Edinburgh and Scotland

June 05, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

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.
