Artists studios are always such a rich environment, and Toby Paterson's studio in Glasgow is no exception. I really love Toby's work, I've admired it for quite some time, being an architectural photographer I can feel parallels between the subject matter we choose to look at. Not only is he a talented artist, he's a great person to work with, he made my job really easy, despite the hard work I put into the two days shooting his studio and home, I felt very relaxed, there was a lot of good chat, specifically about music, where we had a lot of common ground.
Gill Welsh was on hand to art direct the shoot, another reason it went so smoothly. You can read the full article in issue 97 of Homes & Interiors Scotland, keep an eye on the press for any exhibitions Toby is putting on and get yourself down to one if you're interested.
This shoot was a real mix of interior photography and lifestyle photography, it's good to have that flexibility, it opens up so much more scope for me when I'm taking on commissions. We emptied the van lighting most of these shots, but it was well worth the effort.
