I was digging through the electronic archives the other day (call it an early Spring clean) and came across this shot from a shoot I did for The Pulse magazine in the Scottish Mining Museum, Newtongrange.

It was one of my favourite locations ever, and if you add in two fantastic models, Charlotte Turner and Agata Myszkowska and some pretty punchy block colour fashion and it ended up being one of my greatest shoots. This shot did not make the magazine, but there were so many good ones I just wanted to give this another airing.

Models.com has unleashed their top fashion editorials of 2012 (Click on the link above), what do you think?

I love some and have seen others before, but still want to be on that list! I’ll have to work hard to make that happen, but I am certainly going to enjoy the journey trying!

Feel free to share any other great editorials of your choice too, I love looking through them.

Check out my current editorial offerings here:

This is a worldwide competition for all models and designers, make up artists and stylists to get international recognition and fashion spreads.

Go for it folks!

Are you a model who has been treated badly? Get in touch with your own experiences of the modelling industry.

I have never pressured anyone into doing something that they didn’t want to do, nor have I asked anyone to change their diet or body shape.

Why don’t we just start to accept that everyone is different, for once and for all?

I saw this interesting article on the BBC this morning, highlighting some famous photos and how and why they caused such debate.

I’m opening up the PSD Studios for anyone to come down and experience a min-photoshoot on December 8th and 9th.

This is part of the Arts Complex Open Studio event and we are so happy to be involved and offering an express-shoot (5mins) and we will print you a free 6x4 photo while you wait!

You can then wander round this sprawling building and see many other artists work, all completely free of charge!

Well, this is pretty amazing for the city, even I have to admit that!

I’d like to share this fashion shoot with you, as it was published in Spectrum magazine recently and has had a phenomenal reception for its audacity and overall look.

The model was Elaine Ford, who I have worked with many times and her fearless attitude to this shoot, where nothing is faked or photoshopped, was fabulous!

Many people and shops are to be thanked for this and for more information and to see more photos from the shoot you can click the photo above to link to the gallery on my fashion website.

In particular I would like to thank Edinburgh Boutique Arkangel and Felon for allowing us to use some of their amazing clothes, see more here: www.arkangelandfelon.com

I scoured the internet for any reference photos for outdoor clifftop / climbing fashion shots and could not find one authentic image. I think it may be a world first to do this outdoors! How exciting!

The BBC is running an interesting story on the ways the British influenced fashion that people may not know.

Calling all Fashionistas, get your glad rags on and head over to Summerhall to check out a dazzling array of exhibitions, runway shows and talks from some deeply influential fashion world peeps.

You may well spot me there too! Rumour has it that PSD Photography will be utilising his photographic talents throughout many of the events.

I had the pleasure of working with Terri McGlone when she was 14 yrs old and 6’1”. I loved her attitude, she was a very strong character even then and I knew she would go far, as she was a fearless model - my favourite type!

Needless to day, she has done very well and just bagged Storm Model Agency’s - Model of the Week. It doesn’t get much bigger than that!

Good for you Terri, keep it up and no doubt our paths will cross again!
