Will Ye Go, Lassie Go



Oh the Summer time is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
 From around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go





I will build my love a bower
Near yon pure crystal fountain
And on it I will pile
All the flowers of the mountain
Will ye go lassie go
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
From around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go




If my true love she were gone
I will surely find no other
Where wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
From around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go

Green Tin Snail


I am currently in Falkirk, having completed the first part of our journey in the Green Tin Snail. These photos were taken in Banffshire, as we departed. We drove to Montrose on the first day, followed by Dundee yesterday, and stayed in Falkirk last night. I did two shoots yesterday, and about to complete another this morning. 2CVs are fun!

Woodland Creature


Recently I shot with Jakub in some woodland local to me. It was a lovely morning, and we were completely undisturbed for the duration. I always enjoy being out and about within nature, especially on balmy summer mornings.


The early part of the year has been very busy with singing work (hence, less modelling work), travelling throughout Europe. But I have August off completely, and only one show in September, which gives me the whole summer to spend with my son, and enjoy some more photo shoots, too. I'm enjoying modelling as a creative outlet, while I have some free time to do so. More to follow soon, hopefully!

Self Portraits in Den Haag


I am a little behind with blogging, photo-editing, and all other things that require sitting down for more than ten minutes at a time. These self-portraits were taken in my hotel room in Den Haag (The Hague), while I was performing in a (sell-out) show at The World Forum Theater for four days in April. (Yeah, I just had to get that brag-worthy statement in there!)


I am shortly planning a crazy tour of Scotland (in a Citroen 2CV!) which I'm hoping will also produce some interesting photo shoots, and I have some recent images to upload, too. If you happen to be in Scotland and are interested in shooting mid - late August, please get in touch!
Meanwhile, thought I'd add these to my blog. 


I've added the first image in colour too, because I was a little undecided.

In Fields of Barley


Just thought I'd upload a few recent photos taken in Scotland by Dave A Davies. I picked up this bargain dress from a little antique shop, reduced from £215 to £15! I just had to put it on and stand in a barley field. As you do. (Click to view full-screen to appreciate these).
