Happy new year everyone! We hope you had a fantastic 2018, and are so happy to welcome you back to the findr blog in 2019. We started the year off with some useful web design tips, but are now back with some more photography-focused content.
Last year, we ran 6 exciting colour weeks to introduce you to some of our talented photographers, and were so happy with the engagement we got for those.
But this year, we thought we’d bring it back to what makes findr so special: photography for any industry, any purpose, anyone. Every month, we’ll be focusing on a new industry or type of service that findr’s photographers offer, with exclusive background information from the photographers themselves.
And, as always, if you see a photographer you like, head over to their findr profile to book them!

“The image was taken at the MELA festival, Pilrig Park, Edinburgh, back in the summer of 2009. At that time, I was a civilian photographer with Lothian and Borders Police. LBP had a recruitment drive every year at the festival and my job was to capture discussion between visitors to our marquee and our recruitment staff.
There was always a lot going on, as you’d imagine, at such a colourful festival. So, during a ‘break’, I took a walk to have a look at some of the performances. At this particular stage, I could see some dancers fine-tuning their dance routine and adjusting their costumes. I simply asked if I could shoot some images whilst they did so. They obliged with big smiley faces. It was the striking colour of the greens and yellows that caught my attention in the first place. The photo was taken of a band called RADWIMPS during their show in London in 2017. No real inspiration behind this photo, but as a general rule when photographing concerts I always get some photos from behind the crowd so viewers can get an idea of the scale of a show.”

“Skull candy facepaint, floral headbands, sombreros and suits. Welcome to Kirkstall Abbey’s ‘Day of The Dead Fiesta’. What better way to celebrate Halloween than with fire eaters, skeleton acrobats and voodoo doll workshops. Amongst the many performers these ladies put on a performance using fire, the warm glow from each twist and turn lighting up the faces of the amused audience.”
