Calendar shoots finish in Inverurie


Down's Syndrome


Graham Miller

Early start yesterday and a drive up to Inverurie near Aberdeen for the final calendar shoot.  Today is all about now getting a selection of images into dropbox so that the final selection can be made and it will then be sent to the designers then printers.  We are on target for printing mid October.  Driving back from the shoot yesterday I felt sad that it had come to end but I’m excited about how the end product will be received.  As the project progressed I felt more and more able to able to apply some of my personal style to the type of images I took, while making sure I had more conventional photographs in the mix too. Downs Syndrome Scotland seem to have taken to the ‘other’ images as well.    The photo shown here is more of what I like.  Although John and Sylvia are not powerlifting in this image I like them, like the angle, like the layers, like the grain as it was an extreme low light setting.  Its got me thinking about shooting for me and shooting to a brief and I’ve decided in future that I will only take on projects where I can define the brief from the outset. I realise thats going to mean that I turn projects down but photography is such an important part of me I can’t compromise what I do.

Some fresh air now and then its back to my desk for the final stretch…
