I was asked to shoot The Royal Bank of Scotland’s 2018 Hackathon at their HQ, Gogarburn in Edinburgh. Over 250 took part in the event that split into teams and worked furiously over a two day period to create new and exciting products. Some staged shots of the winners but mainly reportage to create a natural, documentary story of the weekend. #bankofapis

I was asked by campaigners, 38Degrees to photograph the Hustings for Edinburgh West at Murrayfield Stadium, in order to encourage people to vote in the June elections. The candidates Sandy Batho (CON) Toni Giugliano (SNP) and Christine Jardine (LD) all received an interesting yet vocal onslaught from the local people of Edinburgh.
