I have always enjoyed watching people interact at social gatherings; weddings, parties, music festivals from initial composed introduction to swinging this new friend around a dance floor, it's always fun editing the images and watching the progression as confidence rises and then before you know it the whole room wants a photo! I am a people person and enjoy meeting new people which certainly helps me achieve my purpose at events. Music is a real passion of mine and I am very much at home capturing musicians and fans having the time of their life - and I've been known to join in while I am at it.
On the other hand when you are taking images of high endurance athletes it can be very emotional - watching people pained as they push themselves to their limit and then the joy and tears and love at the finish line as they celebrate with their loved ones it really is something to behold and I LOVE the challenge of trying to convey that through my photography.
Special mention has to go to a charity very close to my heart (of which I am an ambassador ) It's Good 2 Give! The charity supports young cancer patients and their families during what is an incredibly challenging time. Lynne, Ian and all the volunteers work tirelessly to make sure funds are raised and love is given out in abundance. I am so honoured to be able to do my bit. I cover fundraising events and family sessions at the beautiful Ripple Retreat in Callander. I love to see people come together and learn about the charity and do what they can to support them.
