Here are some pictures from the tragic helicopter accident at the Clutha Vaults in Glasgow on Friday night. These pictures were sold as an exclusive to the Sunday Express.
This is one example of a picture I took where I think the fact it was taken through a window added to the atmosphere. This was taken from the telecoms tower in Berlin, looking down onto a junction in the city. I’ve taken lots of photos of the tower and lots from the tower, but this time it was getting dark and the windows were dirty enough that I didn’t expect to get anything. But using a long lens minimised the effect of the dirt, and from there it was just a case of trying to get the camera stable enough for some telephoto shots looking down on the city. This one reminds me of the computer game SimCity.
Next week I’ll post the other picture in which I think shooting through a window (a car window with rain dribbling down it) adds to the atmosphere. (it was taken on the Scottish island of Rousay)…
In April 2012 myself and Lorriane Ishak traveled to Egypt to film and photograph the work being done at the Aswan Heart Centre. The centre was founded by Prof Sir Magdi Yacoub and with the help of a very determined medical team they have been providing a cardiac medical service in a very deprived corner of the world. Our work culminated with an exhibition at the Egyptian Embassy in London where we raised over £20,000 for the charity Chain of Hope, which supports centres like Aswan. It was a privilege to be welcomed by the team, and to get the chance to portray the valuable work being done there >>
After going full steam ahead on the Aswan Heart Centre project, Meall a’ Bhuiridh and keeping the Mk Music ship afloat I took a break from extra curricular activities and from posting on this blog. The Aswan project culminated with an exhibition at the Egyptian Embassy where we raised over £20,000 for Chain of Hope - a great success. I do now hope to get back into the swing of things with posting on here and working out what’s next!
