I am regularly asked to take pictures at events and parties. But never have I had the chance to create such colourful and vibrant pictures, as I did when I was asked to take pictures at a party hosted by Cake & Hot Tease, in the Viginia Galleries in Glasgow.
Cake & Hot Tease is a small bakery business run by The lovely Nicola Hunter Page. She has been baking for years and set up in business last year. Right now much of her business comes from private customers, businesses and social events such as club nights and burlesque shows. Together with her clients, she provides personalised cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, etc. She works with them to make sure flavours, colours and decorations are absolutely specific to their needs. The venue was perfect to take pictures of the cakes as they had a bright yellow wall which made for a fantastic backdrop to shoot the cakes against.
Lots of people came along and had a great time.
There was a great performance by the fantastic burlesque performer Roxy Stardust.
Party goers could even decorate their own cup cakes and also sample any of Nicolas products.
When I’m asked to undertake assignments by bussnises, the work is varied and no two jobs are ever the same. This one stands out for me because of the brilliant pictures I got to take and all the interesting people I met
The Virginia Gallery is a basement level arts and events space in the centre of Glasgow. Originally set up as a pop up exhibition space for artist Ivor Sexton in December 2010 it has grown into a thriving and essential part of the Glasgow art scene hosting exhibitions from around the UK and Europe.
