Patrick Wolf

I was photographing the Patrick Wolf gig at Oran Mor the other night for More Than The Music. I'd signed up for the gig mainly because he - and the support as it turned out - ticked all my boxes for the most fun sort of musician to photograph, i.e. wears sparkly outfits, makes dramatic gestures, and leaps about the stage. This was certainly the case, but the performance was fantastic - I'd definitely recommend going to see him if you get the chance.

Support act Rowdy Superstar, who was very entertaining and disguised as a disco ball.

Patrick Wolf and harp...

...and violin
...back to just singing.

Happy Birthday

It was Matthew's first birthday party yesterday - an occasion which involved lots of enthusiastic walking-with-carts...

While Andrew pondered the problems of insect infestation of clothing...

Breast Cancer Care

I was taking photos at the Breast Cancer Care networking event in the Blythswood Hotel last night, trying to be unobtrusive and snap people chatting to each other about the charity's work and fundraising ideas.

Heather Suttie, who was hosting the event, holding one of the mysteriously numbered cards that had been handed out to everyone (9,650 is the number of people in the Glasgow area being treated for breast cancer).

Heather with Lorraine Dallas of Breast Cancer Care and Lorraine Queen of Scottish Slimmers who were all speaking at the event.

Heather and the team of staff and volunteers at the end of a successful evening.

RM Hubbert @The Arches

Photos from the RM Hubbert gig at the Arches are now up here, plus Hubby provides interesting answers to a bunch of strange questions I threw at him over here.
