• Bo'ness Iron Foundry by Iain McLean

My commission from Renfrewshire Council to record the creation of a bridge part for the town of Paisley took me to Bo’ness, near Grangemouth in Scotland. There I found Ricky Forrest, a Heavy End Moulder with Bo’ness Iron Company. During the commission I noticed this stunning light and positioned Ricky and a shovel in the frame to give an interesting portrait.
