A few months ago I have upgraded my camera to Nikon D800. It is not that I was unhappy with my D700 and that it deserved to be disposed of just yet, but a small accident involving a bottle of water and my camera together in my handbag made the decision that much…quicker. Previously I have been using my partner’s Canons for filming, or flirting with the idea of getting a camcorder on my own, but D800 solved all those dilemmas (#firstworldproblems).
The first opportunity to use my new shiny DSLR for film making arouse at the Tough Mudder Dalkeith 2014 event . A bunch of my friends participated and I was running along the lines with them, climbing the bins and and what not to get the best shots. I also totally deserved that T-shirt that they got me in the end, as I gave them the last of my water and waited for them for 3h (sic!) in full sun eventually ending up with a heat stroke. It sure was fun (apart of the waiting bit 😉 ), the video not so good, but hey, it was all for a good cause!
Although the video might not be as funny for you as it is for me because you do not know the people involved, but maybe it will encourage you (…or not) to take part in next year’s Tough Mudder fundraising. I sure will be there filming again!
Today I would like to share with you a small selection of photos from Katarzyna and Andrew’s wedding from last August. They had a small ceremony at Aberdeen’s iconic Marischal College building, followed by very intimate dinner at Marcliffe Hotel.
Although it was raining all week prior to the wedding and a bit on the day, we have been lucky enough to take a few outdoor snaps during sunny intervals. Many brides dread that bad weather will spoil their beautiful day, but we made the best out of it as the rainy glow added to the intensity of colors which look absolutely amazing!
Using this opportunity I would like to wish all the best to the newly-wed couple!

Aleksandra and Grzegorz are a fun couple, and when we talked their wedding, they did not want cliche, posed photographs, but candid photographs during the ceremony and something joyful and crazy for their wedding session. Therefore I dressed them in leathers and hats and shoot them at the graffiti background. Aleksandra also always dreamed about a beach wedding, and although Aberdeen’s weather is not exactly suited for it, we went down the Beach Esplanade to take a few shoots she could stick to her weeding album. We had so much laugh making funny faces and jumping around! All the best you two!
In the era of affordable digital cameras, smartphones and what not professional photography services are often forgotten and used pretty much only around weddings and engagement sessions. However when you have a little lively child like Amber who runs from one place to another within nanoseconds, your photos are showing only some blurred action. Thus Amber’s mum, Sylvia, desperate to have some souvenirs of her daughter in her fun age, decided to call me up and arrange for a mini session for Amber’s second birthday.
Amber was sure a challenge, and all three of us (Amber’s parents and I) had dizzy heads from constant spinning and were breathless from running, but it was sure worth it! The session resulted in many beautiful photos, and I had a dilemma in choosing the cutest for editing and posting!
Well, the title says its all. Or almost all. The Fashion Show had a place on 17 July 2014 at Seventeen on Belmont Street, Aberdeen, and it was a huge success. Although it was mainly for family and friends, I am sure that Aymee Charlton, who is a RUG Gray’s School of Art graduate, would be more than happy to invite you to her workshop.
Over the past year I developed a new liking towards sport photography. I covered a few games for Youth Football Scotland, a box night in the Beach Ballroom, and last Saturday – a boat race. Rowing proved to be least dynamic and diverse from all those sports, but nevertheless still amazing to watch, especially after observing emotional reactions of participants and viewers. You will be able to see for yourself, as I captured a moment when one of the winners was thrown to ice-cold water by her team mates, and she was later hugged by her ecstatic mum!
Recently I talked about some technical glitches I had with my blog; well, it seems this is a more global issue and had nothing to do with my IT skills. Wordpress can’t manage, but I will not let that to put me off blogging any longer. Hence today’s post:)
Last week I had a chance to work with a fashion blogger, Angelika eM. Angelika was looking for a photographer, who could capture her creations. We went out on a freezing but sunny afternoon to Seaton Park in Aberdeen. Thanks to the sun I was able to capture some mesmerizing sun flare on some of the photos; later overcast helped with beautiful portraits without harsh shadows. Although I could not feel my fingers afterwards, it was totally worth it. Check it out!
