Little Apple : Documentary Photography for the New York Times & Wall Street Journal.
Documentary assignments are like buses. Nothing for ages then two come along at once.
Almost back to back emails came through last week asking me to shoot some architecture and documentary images for both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. These are two lovely clients that I have done a lot for in the past. The NYT sent me off of Rock House here in Edinburgh on the market at the moment for a cool £1.7 million. Rock House stands proudly on the side of Calton Hill in the very centre of Edinburgh.
'In 1843, Rock House was owned and lived in by pioneer photographers, Robert Adamson and David Octavius Hill. Together, they are widely credited with having established the use of photography as an art form. Major collections of their work are held in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and The Getty Museum.'
The second of the two shoots, for the Wall Street Journal had me working at the opposite end of Edinburgh's famous Princes street in Rutland Square.
26a Rutland Square is a very plush residential pocket in a quiet corner of Edinburgh's West End. With it's private gardens, accessible only to the residents of the square and within a stones throw Edinburgh's centre it's a modern house with a Georgian Heart. Property owner Sarah Law currently lets the property through Air BnB so if you fancy a fancy stay. This is your place.
