LHM Fine Art Photography News

It's been a busy few weeks here at LHM Fine Art Photo HQ, so I thought I'd share a wee update on what's been happening since my last blog post...

I had a successful weekend exhibiting artwork at Shambellie Walled Garden, with a wonderful preview evening hosted by Sheila Cameron. Other artists exhibiting at the event were Archie McCall, Hugh McIntyre, Philippa Sinclair and Charlotte Long. We all had a great time in the garden with really great weather. Thanks to those of you who came along to the event over the weekend and purchased my art. 

I have recently completed two commissions. One to design a book cover which I absolutely loved. It was challenging and completely different from past commissions, but spending time reading a draft copy of the book and working out the style and feel for the front cover was very satisfying. I'll be sharing links and more details about the book hopefully before the end of December when it is published. 

Another commission was to photograph some beautiful pottery by Archie McCall. Here's a sneak peek at some of his lovely pots. I met Archie at his Spring Fling Open Studio last year, which was wonderful and a real high-light of the event. His work is inspiring and his studio, set in his garden is both charming and enlightening. 

In other news, very excited to share that I've been accepted as an artist member and volunteer at The Yellow Door Shop and Gallery in Dumfries, I really love the creative space and their events and preview evenings are very enjoyable. Watch this space for details of events from the gallery and do go along if you get the chance. I'll be having an exhibition at The Yellow Door in the New Year too. More about that soon.

And, last but certainly not least....I'm delighted that I have been awarded a Licentiateship with The Royal Photographic Society The Society's distinctions are internationally respected and sought after by photographers. Preparations are now underway for my application for Associateship! 

Well, I think that brings you up to date. I'll be on location in Morocco for a while but will post more updates and images on my return.

Many thanks for looking, please do leave any comments and feedback below, I'd love to hear from you.
