Where are some of your favourite places to shoot in Edinburgh?
Arthur's Seat is a favourite of mine, an extinct Volcano right in the middle of the city, its rocky outcrops, lush grasses and gorse all make for a stunning backdrop to any shoot and the views even from the road which runs around its base to the city are amazing.
The small, quaint closes, alleyways and cobbled streets around the Old Town of Edinburgh allow us to step back in time and are always a nice place to shoot images with some real Scottish mood and history.
Calton Hill is good for many reasons, dominated by The National Monument of Scotland (the structure which gives Edinburgh its nickname 'The Athens of The North') the stunning views along Princes Street, to The Castle and out to the Sea are unsurpassed anywhere The City, there is a good mix of nature, old stonework and cityscape up here and there is always a new angle to work on.
