Got myself a credit as Producer on an Amazon Prime Video documentary! Along with Jim Leishman of PortalFilms. We spent over a year following competitors on the Scottish Highland Games Circuit to bring a fresh look at what really goes on with these strength athletes in kilts!

Once again, been shooting second camera on a job. BBC Scotland thing about strip clubs! Half way through the producer realises he's not told me "...the girls don't want their face to be seen!" ...so...er...that means shooting the whole of the second dance focusing solely on...er...

Conducted and recorded a interview for a remote client last week with the inimitable Charles Maclean,  whisky writer and ambassador of all things malty. 
This was a pick up for a fabulous job I did last year, three weeks shooting a Whisky documentary called The Water of Life, hopefully it'll screen this year sometime.  My missus ( tinasorensenphotgraphy ) came along too as the client wanted some portraits of Charles. I think this one's a belter.

Spent the day with Sir Jackie Stuart yesterday....he's kinda close to being Scottish royalty really now isn't he?  Anyway, he's launched a charity, Race Against Dementia and asked for a few of his pals to help with a launch. Dario Franchitti flew in from NY, David Coulthard turned up as did Damon Hill and Gil de Ferran, along with a crop of current talent Some pretty big hitters!

What's been happening recently? Well there was recently an interesting development as a consequence of the Water of Life doc (  https://wateroflifefilm.com/ )that I worked on last year. Having got back to the US the producers really wanted another interview with the inimitable Mark Reynier of Waterford Distillery. So, developing my second string as a shooter, I shot and conducted Mark's interview.  I now have a credit as 'additional photography' on a soon to be released Netflix documentary!!

Out with Jim Leishman the other day shooting for SSE. Looked like the firmware on his Meatabones had borked and wouldn't 'talk' to his EF 24-70mm, on the 'B'  camera set up.  so no control of aperture at all! Fished out my current fav I/V lens from my kit ...a Zenith 58mm that came off Ebay for about twelve quid.Just the thing!
