Edinburgh to London contact sheets

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Having made the move from Edinburgh to London, I’m now heading into my second week of employment as a photographer! I’m working full-time producing architectural and interior photography, and the best bit of that I get a company scooter to get around London in! Actually, the work is the best part – I love having a job that means I’m not stuck in an office all day long. Such a good decision, and I’m so glad I got it!
Understandably I’ve been a little run off my feet getting used to everything and so haven’t had a chance to get going on the heavy editing work required for my recent Edinburgh to London project. So… in order to stave off the guilt for a while, I’ve scanned in the contact sheets which I just picked up from the developers. I was using an old medium format Hasselblad camera for the trip, and though most of the photos I took were on my D200, the quality and ‘feel’ created by the Hasselblad is too pleasing to resist. Unfortunately, development costs are somewhat prohibitive.

Below are some thumbnails, but I’ve uploaded them at full resolution so if you click on them you should be taken to a full-size version hosted on flickr.

Enjoy for now, and eventually I’ll get round to finishing the real editing work.

Where’s the ‘English’?

I’m on a train with awful wifi, but thought I’d try to post this.

Out in India an off-licence is called an ‘English’, and though it claims to sell wine it does no such thing – just beer, whisky, gin, and vodka.

Indian Kid

This is probably my fave photo from my time in India in 2003. These were some kids from one of the younger classes at the school where I taught.
