Concept Photoshop Project ~ Back in February the classical music group, the Dunedin Consort, got in touch about creating a series of images for their new season brochure. Over three shoot sessions with the musicians and many fun hours tinkering in Photoshop, these are the final concepts that made it into the brochure – which launched last night!

Jo Buckley, CEO of the Dunedin Consort asked me to create images of their principle players at landmarks around Scotland but with a fantastical twist. Huge credit to the players who turned up at the Meadows to have their photo taken and found themsleves posing in alsorts of different ways!

We’ve covered lots of landmarks, from Edinburgh’s Salisbury Crags and Forth Rail Bridge to the Isles of Mull, Staffa and Lewis and even up to Aberdeen lighthouse. Great fun putting these concept images together in photoshop from stock images found on iStock by Getty Images and Alamy.

The Dunedin Consort have an incredible year of music ahead – go check out their listings, you won’t be sorry!

After having a good run with my ongoing series based on the A~Z Rosie Hardy Challenge concept photography project it was great to put my photoshop skills to more use for the Dunedin Consort’s classical musicians. Loving getting to do more concept projects!
