My Photography

Background notes about the author

 of the EdinPhoto web site:

Peter Stubbs

 

Early Photography  -  Yorkshire

School Photo

       My Photos -  St Bede's Grammar School  -   In the school grounds  -  On the Log    -  1962

My interest in photography began while I was living in Bradford, Yorkshire. 

and attending St Bede's Grammar School.  The school had its own darkroom and a Photographic Society run by the Chemistry Teacher, Mr McFee.

At the time, I was particularly interested in making black and white prints of:

-  railways

-  other transport

-  school friends and school events

More School Photos

Please click on the thumbnail image below to see some of the photos that I took at the school.  I used to sell copies of them., about postcard size, to others in the class for 4d each.  That just covered the cost of the materials used.

My Photos -  St Bede's Grammar School  -   Enlargement of a Group seated  -  1962

Update

I returned to visit St Bede's Grammar School in June 2013 - almost fifty years after I left the school.  Please click here to read about this return visit and see a few photos taken then.

Move to Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle - Late afternoon - Winter

I moved from Yorkshire to Edinburgh in 1963 and joined Edinburgh Photographic Society.  I have used the Society's colour and black & white darkrooms over many years.

Most of my photography for about the next 20 years was on colour slide film, photographing, family, holidays, landscape and railways.  Since about 1990 I have taken more interest in documentary photography.

I  joined the  EPS Creative Group* then joined the EPS Digital Imaging Group.  These two groups merged in 2012 to become the EPS Creative Digital Group.

* = formerly the EPS Colour Group

 

Documentary Projects

    Leith Dry Docks

I am continuing a number of documentary projects in my spare time, including:

-  Edinburgh at Work

-  Scotland at Work

-  Edinburgh's Shops

-  Citroen 2CV Cars.

-  Scottish Railway Stations

Some photos from  these projects are included on this web site.

 

For almost all the photographs for these projects, I have used Fuji Velvia slide film.  I have a large collection of  these slides, and have made 50cm x 40cm colour prints from several of them.

However, the photos for my Scottish Stations project are black and white.  These were  were taken on Agfa 25ASA or Ilford 50ASA film; some are on Kodak High Speed infra-red film. 

 

Why take the Photos?

Up to 1990s

My main reasons for taking photos at this time were:

-  for the family album, and

-  for Edinburgh Photographic Society competitions.

I found the competitions to be a challenge.  Some required photos to be taken on particular themes, causing me to take photos that I would not otherwise have taken.  It was interesting to see how a theme could be interpreted in many different ways.

Since 1990

I continued to enter EPS competitions and began to send my colour prints and slides away to International and other Open Competitions for a few years -  a challenge again, though I didn't win many medals!

However, my reason for taking many of the photos changed.  Now, my main reasons for taking photos are:

-  to try to capture images that I think will be interesting to look back on in the future.

-  to take photos that might be of interest to people viewing the EdinPhoto web site.

Web Sites, Papers and Magazines

As well as adding my photos to the EdinPhoto web site - when I have found the time to do that - and occasionally sending photos for publication in the Edinburgh Evening News Picture Gallery feature, I've received emails from many people around the world asking if they can use my images for different purposes.

I've often been surprised by where the requests have come from:

-  a group of Australian Electricity Pylon enthusiasts interested in my photo of a Pylon in the mountains in Queensland

-  a group of Ukrainian Bus Shelter enthusiasts, interested in some of my photos of Edinburgh bus shelters.

-  Several editors of specialist magazines that I never knew existed.

Other Uses

Here are the ways that some of my photos have been used:

-  Exhibitions + Collections

City Art Centre ('Castle to Palace'), Museum of Edinburgh (Newhaven Heritage Museum), Central Library (Edinburg Room Collection),
Living Memories Association.

-  Art Work

Research and Publication

Research

    EPS Transactions  -  1880-1900 

My research into the History of Photography in Edinburgh, and creation of this web site www.edinphoto.org.uk has been carried out in my spare time.

The research began in the mid-1990s.  Initially, I wrote a few articles for:

-  Edinburgh Photographic Society Bulletin

-  Scottish Photographic Federation Bulletin

-  other photographic Bulletin.

Booklets

I then compiled some of my research into booklets:

Poems from the Transactions and Bulletins of Edinburgh Photographic Sockety  -  1884-1990

Compiled 1998

Edinburgh Photographic Society
Poems  -  1884-1990

Booklet compiled by Peter Stubbs - Edinburgh Photographic Societies in the 19th Century

Compiled 1999

Edinburgh Photographic Societies
in  the 19th Century

Edinburgh Photographic Society, Wednesday Evening Meetings  -  1861-1999

Compiled 2000

Edinburgh Photographic Society
Wednesday Meetings  -  1861-1999

Booklet published by the Historical Group of the Royal Photographic Society  -  Professional Photographers in Edinburgh, Leith and Portobello, 1840-1940

Compiled 2001

Professional Photographers
in Edinburgh  -
  1840-1940

Publication

Two of these booklets were published, both for limited audiences:

-  the second for Edinburgh Photographic Society

-  the last for Royal Photographic Society.

I still have the other two, but they have not been published.

Publication

Soon after compiling these booklets, I realised that I would be able to reach a wider audience (and  update the content more easily) if I created a web site to hold all the research.  So I created www.edinphoto.org.uk and launched it in 2001.  The site went 'live' in 2001.

I selected the name, EdinPhoto, because 'Edin Photo' was the name that staff at Royal Bank of Scotland had written on papers for an Edinburgh Photographic Exhibition Account when they opened it for me as Treasurer of the EPS International Exhibition.

I was amused to see that Royal Bank of Scotland continued to use this name, when the account was operating.

For several years, they sent envelopes to my home, addressed to Edin Photo, containing correspondence beginning 'Dear Mr Photo ...".

EdinPhoto Web Site

The scope of the site, at first, was 'The History of Photography in Edinburgh', but within months the scope expanded.   Now, in 2013, the site also covers other Edinburgh topics including:

-  Old photos and engravings

-  Recent photos and News

-  Recollections

-  Postcards

-  Transport

-  Maps.

The Future

Where next from here  -  from October 2013?

There is plenty to keep me fully occupied:

-  I still have large collections of old photos and recent photos, and lots of information, waiting to be added to the web site.

-  I have a large backlog of emails to reply to, and they are still arriving daily, as fast as I am able to cope with them.

- I'm still taking my photos, particularly documentary photos, showing some of the changes that are happening in Edinburgh.

 

Recent and Forthcoming Talks

Prints and 35mm Slides

For many years, I gave talks to photographic societies and local history groups, usually illustrated by prints and projected 35mm slides.

Digital Images

From 2008 onwards, as more societies have acquired digital projectors, I've been basing my talks around the images on the EdinPhoto web site, usually compiling long pages of images from the web site, to scroll down during the talks.

Scope of the Talks

If you click on the links for most of the talks below, you'll be able to see the scope of these talks.  Many of the pages are very long, so they may be slow to load and you'll need to do a lot of scrolling if you wish to read the whole page.

You may find some quite large areas of blank space as you scroll down the pages.  I've added the 'space' to the pages so that individual images can be viewed in isolation, without distraction when images are viewed on the large screes used for most of these talks.

Some of the comments on these pages may appear a little cryptic (without the additional commentary that I would normally give when delivering the talks) but I hope most of the text and pictures on these pages will make sense to you as you scroll down the pages.
