Fun Pics Press & PR Photographer Glasgow Edinburgh Scotland

Fun pics for the NTS, at Holmwood House.

Great fun, and very much the type of job I did often for the Evening Times.

As a father of three, I’d much rather be taking photos of kids having fun than footballers or celebs. My oldest daughter is now 18, but she’s been in more papers over the years than I can recall… ;-)

Couple of nice shows for the pics in the papers as well as web use by the NTS.

How the cone gets there, the true story…

It’s long been a mystery how the traffic cone appears on the Duke of Wellington’s head.

Well, I can now reveal the true story of how the cone gets there. Every night when the locals are asleep, wacky 80’s comedy duo Cannon and Ball sneak up and plonk the cone on the Duke’s head and not forgetting his horse.

As I’m a wily old fox of a snapper, with years of training as a Police Photographer I was able to catch this pair of miscreants red handed, so to speak…. ;) Tsk tsk… some people eh?

I was out on a job for a client the other day at the Briggait, a Glasgow institution. Part of the job was at Glasgow Green, so as I wandered over I stopped and did a double take at Paddy’s Market.

I dropped a frame through the railings, and it’s a bit of a sorry state. I was always a big fan, as I still am of the Barras. Of course there were issues, there were drugs and there were stolen goods, but they were in the minority and the traders did their best to rid the market of these undesirable elements. I grew up wandering these markets and staring in awe at the people who would buy ONE shoe, or Sydney Devine’s Greatest Hits on a cassette with a dodgy designed and photocopied cover. It was part of my youth, and my life is better because of it.

Over 30 years ago, as a Photography student I wandered about this lane with camera in hand. There were amazing sights to behold as a young snapper, youth being on my side as it was obvious I wasn’t from the Polis. (Although give it time and I would be…) Although I do remember a few of us doing some project or whatever and a guy shouting ” Who ur ye takin’ photies fur?” and without thinking I shouted back “The ‘broo…” well, we did have to drop a few frames and then run that time, but it was all just good natured banter. Strangely enough that wouldn’t be the last time I dropped a few frames and ran, but that’s a story for another day.

I do remember when I was at the Evening Times I got summoned there to give backup to another photographer who had been tasked with doing pics there for a feature. He’s been getting a bit of aggro from some heavies. The best bet in a case like this, is find who looks to be the oldest and most veteran trader you can see, approach them, tell them you’re from the Evening Times and it’s a good news story, nothing dodgy. I must admit my accent changes depending on who I’m speaking to… sorry. ;) They will then spread the word that you’re a “good guy”. I’ve done this on more than one occasion. The main thing is be honest, and don’t take the proverbial…

As part of the Cooncil’s gentrification, sorry “regeneration” plans, Paddy’s was closed in 2009. Glad to see they’ve made good use of the space, err.. hold on????

It’s photographer time. Photography students of all ages know what I’m talking about! ;-) It was always one of our first projects, and the watch hands had to be at 10 past 2.


Here’s an explanation from the Peta Pixel website…

Have you ever noticed that the watches and clocks found in product photographs and advertisements usually show the time 10:10? If you haven’t, pay attention the next time you’re flipping through a publication and come across a watch ad—the rule is almost always true.

If you have noticed this, do you know why 10:10 is the default time for watch photographers?

According to the New York Times, the main reason is quite simple and obvious: aesthetics. There are a number of visual advantages to having the hands set at the 10:10 positions.

One is that the hands are kept from overlapping. Having them on both sides of the watch face ensures that the hands themselves are visible and can be appreciated.

The position also allows the hands to look nice on the face of the timepiece. The 10:10 position is symmetrical, and the human brain tends to appreciate symmetry and orderliness.

Another reason is that key details on the face of the watch or clock usually remain visible at 10:10. The logo of the manufacturer is usually found under the 12, and sometimes next to the 3-, 6-, and 9-o’-clock positions. Logos found under the 12 are nicely framed by 10:10 hands.

Finally, the 10:10 hands look “happy” due to the fact that the hands look like a smile (or like a “V” as in “victory”). The NYTimes reports that Timex used to use the time 8:20 in their product photos, but eventually decided to turn that “frown” upside-down.

There are a number of urban legends regarding the 10:10 time floating around in the world. Many of them attribute it to a historic event (e.g. Lincoln/JFK assassinations, the dropping of the atomic bombs), but there isn’t any truth behind those explanations.
