I was covering a junior football game in Dunbar yesterday, well some of it at least, the usual stormy winter weather and Dunbar lost, at least they were losing with 5 minutes to go. Never mind, its been a while and it was great to get back into some sports photography in East Lothian. Wet weather is all about trying to keep your gear dry, is it water sealed, is it worth risking it, if you are not getting paid, best to go indoors and wait. I have seen people out in all kinds of weather, when it is not a paid commission, not worth risking your £2k camera. Its only last year I lost a camera to a wave in Dunbar, now I am mega careful, that and the fact that after 2 accidents by the sea, I cant get water damage insurance, it does tend to effect your behaviour. Anyway, onto more important things. I have a couple of interesting event photography commissions in Edinburgh coming up, first of all a children’s rock concert, run by the Rock Project. Then, a conference for NHS Education for Scotland and some wedding photography in East Lothian just after Christmas. Meanwhile, I am preparing infrared framed prints for sale at Christmas.
