Hello 2012

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

Wow!!! February’s already here… Barely have we had time to awaken from the slumber of the holiday season, rub our eyes and start focusing on the year ahead when we find ourselves at the start of the month of Love.

At the outset, we would like to wish you all, albeit a bit late, a very Happy 2012 from Black Stallion Country. Here’s hoping that the Year of the Dragon proves to be one that’s filled with wisdom, prosperity and happiness.

January has been a pretty eventful month and hence we thought we should bring you all up to speed with all that’s happening in Black Stallion Country:

1. Three of our images (A New Day, Lunar Phase and Eurofighter Typhoon – Saltire) were featured as the ‘Photo of the Day’ in the Light and Composition Magazine.

2. Three of our images (as seen below) were published in The Herald* as the ‘Picture of the Day’.

* – The Herald Scotland is a broadsheet newspaper published in Glasgow and available throughout Scotland.

3. We published three projects (Autumn Series 1 and 2 and The Reds) on our online Portfolio.

In addition to this, we officially launched our Corporate Event and Wedding Photography services in Scotland this month. So feel free to drop us a line if you’d like us to photograph an upcoming Corporate Event or Wedding. We must, at this point, add that we are open to taking on other photography assignments and would gladly undertake specially commissioned work as well.

So as you can see, Black Stallion Country has been awash with activity be it at a slow, sleepy pace.

All that’s left for us to say is Thank You – and we truly mean that. To each and every one of you who reads our blog, visits our website,  follows us on Twitter, is a fan of ours on Facebook and regularly visits us online, to you all we bow down in gratitude. If it were not for you, we would not have had and will not continue to have the energy and motivation that keeps us going. We hope to enthrall you with even better images in 2012…

Till next time, take care and gallop free.

Jungle City

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

August has been a really hectic month both for myself as well as the City of Edinburgh. The city has played host to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011 – a month-long spectacle that sees close to 21,000 performers presenting 41,689 performances of a record-breaking 2,542 shows at 258 venues – and I have been kept busy photographing bits and pieces of the Festival.

Edinburgh might well have been the Festival City in August but now with the festival drawing to a close, the city is getting ready to acquaint itself with its wild side and be transformed into a Jungle City. 130 life-size animal sculptures of the planet’s most endangered species – Asian Elephants, Tigers, Orangutans, Crocodiles and Hornbills – have been unleashed in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. From the 6th of September these animals will hit the capital’s streets.

Jungle City, set to be Edinburgh’s biggest outdoor art event on record, has received the backing of a large number of donors and supporters. Many large corporates have also sponsored the event and by doing so they’ve played a part in a major conservation project – one example is the image below that shows a tiger sponsored by the Scottish Football Club, Rangers.

A Fundraising initiative by the charity Elephant Family, the sculptures will be sold via auction (online or live – details can be found on their website) in a bid to raise £1 million for the survival of endangered species.

So if you live in Edinburgh or just happen to be here, head over to the Botanics and see these beautiful creatures for yourselves. They are on display at the Botanics till Sunday 4th September. And after that, look out for them on the streets of Edinburgh where they will be on display till the end of the month.

Till next time, take care and gallop free.

A New Identity is Born

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

It’s been nine months since Black Stallion Photography was born in Black Stallion Country and what an eventful nine months it’s been.

On this first day of 2011, we look back at what’s been achieved and we look forward to what’s to come.

The road travelled thus far

The list below should not, by any means, be misconstrued as us boasting of our achievements but it merely is a snapshot of what’s happened over the past nine months in 2010:

1. Black Stallion Photography takes birth in Black Stallion Country and our blog is launched on the 9th of March, 2010

2. Black Stallion Photography’s website (www.blackstallionphotography.co.uk) goes live on the 26th of March 2010.

3. Black Stallion Photography starts gaining online presence via Facebook , Twitter and Flickr.

4. Our images start getting featured in local Scottish papers and get showcased on the BBC Website as well.

5. Our work gets featured in the Amateur Photographer Magazine.

6. Black Stallion Photography’s Online Store is set up giving people the opportunity to purchase our prints in various formats.

7. We launch our very first Coffee Table Photo Book.

The interest, encouragement and motivation that all of you have given us has made all this possible and we would like to thank you for that.

The road yet to be travelled

We realise that we have but taken only a few steps on our journey and we have many more miles to gallop before we can rest. We have many exciting plans in the pipeline which will be unveiled in due course and we wanted to start the New Year with a new beginning.

Today, Black Stallion Photography takes on a new identity by way of a brand new logo:

Logo Designed by Pirate Dog Design

The imagery contained in this logo embodies all the characteristics of Black Stallion Photography: creativity, bursting with ideas, thinking out of the box and galloping wild and free as does a Black Stallion.

In addition to a new identity, Black Stallion Photography will be taking up abode at a new location on the World Wide Web from today:


We really love having visitors – so please do drop by Black Stallion Country as often as you would like to. We will always be there to welcome you in and show you around.

Hope you can join us on our ride down the yet untrodden road that is 2011.

Wishing you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Take care and gallop free.
