Long time no see – it were extremely busy months for us since our return from the Caribbean in February.  We did deliver tons of photographs to various prestigious clients (having pics used by Vogue, and other fine publications), and we wrote an exclusive story with photographs for Real Life Caribbean magazine – featuring life style of Kalinago, one of last remaining Carib tribes in the world. On top of that we signed a contract to produce and publish by our company Ozone Zone Books a book of water colours by known Caribbean artist, continued with our own next Caribbean title, and photographed lots of creative model work here in Victoria. If you add to it finishing the new look of our Ozone Zone Books website and additional local architecture photography jobs – it all adds up to a busy time.

Right now we are planning for more work – fine photography contest-salon, my new series of fine art photography (which is quite rebellion, but more details later when it is ready – I can’t spill the beans yet), and then – another Caribbean location trip in the summer..
So, in other words – busy, busy… ouch, perhaps too busy after all.
so, what do we do? We squeeze one more trip – this time to… Scotland!

We will be in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and some small fishing villages – which hopefully will  offer great photo opportunities. and hey – in one of them there is a fish-and-chip shop voted the best in Scotland for the last few year! At least that part of the trip can’t go wrong!
however, the highlight of this travel for me will be visit to the Rosslyn chapel.
I’ve heard so many comments about this magical place, and I have high photo expectations. surely i will share my shots with you.
So, off we go, and i will write an update when a chance arises. Cheers!
