Hello and welcome to my first blog post.

Earlier this year I visited Tranquility a Wild West town near Huntly, Aberdeenshire with journalist Wendy Glass to shoot a series of photographs for a story in The Scots Magazine ( October 2015 edition ).

The town is in former teacher and retired postmaster Ally Baranowski's ( Marshall JB ) garden and even has it's own jail in case any of the boys misbehave.

I just wish I had the Profoto B1 lights back then, as it was a real struggle to light up the guy's faces under those cowboy hats with speedlights, on what was a very sunny afternoon.

You can view the full set of images at the following gallery :  http://www.atimages.com/p434661877

Until next time
