2013 in photos

I'm not the kind of person who usually makes lists compiling the best of the year, and I don't enjoy that much to look back and see what has happened in 2013, but I thought it would be nice to select a few photos I took during this year and write a little about the story behind them.

2013 has been a good year for my photography. My style has evolved and is now more defined, and I have started to get more paid commissions which, of course, is always good.

Hope you enjoy this selection and I'll see you really soon in 2014 with some new photos!

This is a photo of Daniel, from the first part of my on-going series A Day in Glasgow. I started this project to document and pay homage to a city that inspires me every time I visit it.

This is the last photo I took in my old bedroom in Edinburgh before moving to a new flat. Although the room was quite dark during most of the day, the light in the morning was always beautiful.

I took this photo of my friend Marta when I went to visit my parents in Spain in April. The cherry trees close to my parents' house were blossoming and all the area was really beautiful with the first signs of Spring.

I took this photo of English band Peace for Nylon Guys in Glasgow in February, just the day before my Birthday. This was my first band shoot and also the first time working for Nylon Guys.

This is an image from my editorial After School, which I shot in the area around my flat in Edinburgh with stylist Katherine Whyte, MUA Caron Tait and models Sophie Crooks and Ciara Rafferty. It was my first time using the Contax T2 which I had bought just a couple of weeks before and loved the result!

I took this photo during my trip to Wroclaw, Poland, in October. The block behind the trees is an iconic building of the city, designed by architect Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak in the 1960s. It is part of a 6-building complex known as the ""Wroclaw's Manhattan".

This is a still from my video and personal project 10 Shoegaze Songs. I filmed it over a couple of days when I visited Spain in April using a hi8 camera, which I also used for filming another couple of videos in 2013.

This photo of model Ben Nugent is part of the editorial Pattison Street I shot for menswear website Fucking Young. It was styled by my friend Danielle Coates and was also shot really close to my flat in Edinburgh.

This is another image from my project A Day in Glasgow. The girl in the photo is Penelope Joan Gillies and it was taken just outside Kelvingrove museum.

This is my friend Amalia in her old flat. The image is part of a small lookbook I shot for t-shirt label Makelovelovemake last January.

I toook this photo of Jakub in August. He was, of course, hating having his photo taken but the light was amazing and had to be used...

And this is how I looked like in 2013.

Photo of your hand is great, I like how you "playing" with light.
