Today was a great day for an outdoor product shoot to celebrate the release of some stylish new fire bellows, hand crafted in our very own Scottish Borders with the finest in Jubilee tartan.
The bellows were created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the accession of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. The selected colours in the tartan are believed to be amongst Her Majesty's favorite!
We also shot some exotic skin bellows and hair on hide bellows, the fabric and location photography gives these traditional products and their marketing a contemporary twist which must be working well as Ruth, the maker has recently had some fantastic press and PR in magazines such as House and Garden, Country Life, Living North and Scottish Field mostly featuring my photography, woot!

Yes, you read right PINK Ostrich bespoke fire bellows, not only that... we have 'hairy' cow ones too!
Ruth is mad, but mad in a good, fun kind of way... she has amazing creative ideas and we have a fab time working together, bouncing ideas around and drinking cups of tea.
People have been nagging her to put a portrait of herself on the Devlin Jones website as she makes all the bellows herself, reluctantly she obliged and after a lot of giggling I think you'll agree we got a lovely natural shot of her.
One of the pictures here shows a few magazine articles the bellows have featured in recently, mag's included Scottish Field, Country Life, Scotland on Sunday magazine and Living North all published using my pictures, I was impressed and the cat seemed to like them.
High End Scottish Tartan Fire Bellows on The Coast
first posted on 27th August 2009
Today was a great day, I have been photographing some top quality, bespoke tartan fire bellows on location.
Our client was looking to create a 'high end' and 'Scottish' theme to reflect these unique products so there was nothing else for it but to use the beautiful natural environment which surrounds us as a backdrop.
We started the shoot in the countryside, however, after a brief but slightly scary encounter with large heard of cows and some barbed wire we retreated to the calm of the coast.
