Sorry for the lack of posts – we have been unbelievably busy over the past few weeks – speaking to new clients, re-tendering, tweaking print prices and of course making magazines. I found time to help out on a photo shoot for Scotland in Trust – our membership title for the National Trust for Scotland. That’s me arranging books for the retail pages in a darkened studio near the Meadowbank velodrome. Someone’s got to do it!
Normal service will resume shortly.
Just received some great photos back from Mark Sinclair of PhatSheep photography in Shetland for a 5-page feature due to be included in the coming issue of Scotland In Trust, the membership magazine for the National Trust for Scotland. Here is a sneak preview of what we’ll be printing:
We’d asked Mark to take photographs of Belmont House on Unst which is owned by the Belmont Trust and due to be available for holiday rentals through the National Trust for Scotland from this spring.
Mark did a great job and we must thank him for his considerable efforts including a lengthy drive and two ferry crossings to reach the property!
Not really mag related but take a look at these stunning photographs of water caught in mid air from Shinchi Maruyama. Gorgeous!
It’s not all sitting in front of a screen laying out pages here at CMYK Towers. Sometimes we have to get involved in photo shoots, gathering together props, finding locations and standing in as models!
A couple of weeks ago it was Christmas at my house, as we recreated a festive “gifts under the tree” scene for the forthcoming Scotland in Trust.
Then just the other day, we went to our photographer’s back garden and set up a cover shoot (harvesting apples). Shannon Tofts, our friendly photographer, needed an old fashioned looking bellows to see the screen of his laptop. Thanks too, to Tattie Shaws for the Discovery apples – delicious!
With what must surely be painstaking effort, Peter Funch pieces together themed sets of photographs to create street scenes that oscilate from the comedic to the downright creepy!

Apparently with no Photoshop involved (although there will doubtless be a chorus of unbelievers) Vogue have disguised a 20 year old model as being everywhere between 10 and 60. They could do a lucrative line in fake IDs…
