When @matyldakonecka_illustrations contacted me to do a special landscape portrait I was rather excited. To work with creative people is an absolute delight and Matylda’s art is phenomenal! A lot of her illustrations are inspired by Scottish landscapes so it seemed fitting for her to add some of those wonderful characters in her portrait... at... my favourite place 😂. I personally think this image says so much about her and I’m rather proud of our combined efforts. Hope you like it too? If you haven’t already done so please check out her work. #awesomepeople #makegoodart #koalasplace 🐨🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿_______________________________________________________ #kristyashtonphotography #visitbritain #ukpotd #ig_scot #theauldromantics #visualsofbritain #instabritain #outlander #thisisscotland #girlscreating #scotlandshots #scotspirit #ecosse #scotlandmagazine #scotlandinfairytale #scottishcastles #pocket_girlrocks #moodygrams #agameoftones #liveforthestory #visualsofscotland #lensbible #scotlandisamazing #followmetoscotland #simplyscotland #storiesfromscotland #scottishbanner

How’s January going folks? I’ve been busy creating a new website and this Warrior Princess/Dragonslayer/Shield Maiden(?!) @isaolsson graces the home page 🗡 We had so much fun doing these. 💜 Wanted also to say a proper ‘Hi’ 🐨🙌 to everyone. I’ve been quite absent on here and I’m missing you guys... 😢 A lot going on and not a lot of chances for personal creative projects and I miss that. Instagram is a hard world to keep up with 🙄ANYWAY, firmly into the New Year now so time to get cracking with our new website and packages. Hope you like it?

The 9/11 tartan by designer Stacy Clark - “This somber tartan was designed to remember the fateful events of September 11, 2001. "9/11" is literally weaved within the very fabric of the material. In 16oz wool the thread count is 234 (2+3+4="9") and the sett is 6.5" (6+5="11"), hence 9/11. In regard to the colors, the black background is in remembrance of all who were lost on and after that fateful date. The wider gray columns represent the World Trade Center Towers which have become forever synonymous with the attacks. All other colors are purposely muted against the black and the gray to be almost indistinguishable from each other, just as all who responded could not be told apart in their common mission to save lives. The red flanking either side of the towers pays tribute to all fire fighters. The blue outside that honors all law enforcement. The green stripes pay tribute to the military and the muted white includes all medical and civilian responders." #NeverForget911 #ScottishBanner

The bridge was closed for the wedding I was about to shoot. I had 15 mins to do their bit. But... the storm was coming... the bride and groom currently taking shelter from the torrential downpour about to grace us. Hundreds of people behind me.. waiting. Just me and another photographer (who escaped to the shore) had the chance. One snap I thought. Just one... #forthegram #liketheolddays 🐨_______________________________________________________ #theauldromantics #visitbritain #ukpotd #ig_scot #kristyashtonphotography #visualsofbritain #instabritain #outlander #thisisscotland #girlscreating #scotlandshots #scotspirit #ecosse #scotlandmagazine #pocket_girlrocks #moodygrams #liveforthestory #visualsofscotland #lensbible #followmetoscotland #simplyscotland #storiesfromscotland #scottishbanner #castle
