Event photographer Glasgow Scotland at the Kirkintilloch Canal Festival

Hi Everyone 

A great weekend at the Kirkintilloch Canal Festival even if the weather was awful on Saturday night but it will take more than a little rain to spoil things in the west of Scotland.  There was live music, stalls and all kinds of entertainment, including the attached photo from the Sisters of Soul, who were at their best, along with all the live entertainment. This year’s festival was a bit special as it was the first one since the pandemic and you could tell everyone was itching to make their way to Southbank Marina in Kirkintilloch.

As a freelance event and conference photographer, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland, it was good to cover an event like this and it brought back memories of my 10 years as a newspaper photographer in Scotland.  If there any photographers out there just starting out, I would suggest they get in some local practice at events in their area.  You don’t need special gear nowadays, just a camera, or a good phone for that matter.  It’s a myth that you need to turn up at events with 3 cameras and massive lenses, that is just for show, especially with the advancement of technology with mirrorless cameras.  The only time you need a large lens is at poorly lit night events where more high quality glass is required and even that is changing.

So, thanks to East Dunbartonshire Council for a great couple of days.  Can’t wait until next year.

Kind Regards

Colin
