Business Branding Photography Session for The Bagpiper
“Let me play you tunes without measure or end.
Tunes that are born to die without a herald
As a flight of storks rises from a marsh, circles,
and alights on the spot from which it rose.”
A young Gold Coast based musician, Callum Pert, both truly honours and respects the tradition of Scottish bagpiping, while also imbuing his art with a youthful energy that imparts it’s magic to older and younger generations alike.
When his business called for branding photography, the creativity flowed. There really is nothing quite like the lingering, reverberating music of the bagpiper. The passion, poise, and centuries old traditional kilt outfit all combine to captivate.
And during our shoot for his website, Callum’s performance certainly captivated every onlooker.
This University student has honed his skill of the pipes over the past 8 years and loves nothing more than to entertain others through the stirring reed instrument. And he also passes his knowledge onto other young people by teaching bagpipes.
Callum seemingly effortlessly displayed this talent during our photo session at the Botanic Gardens.
His command of the bagpipes by the creek on a desperately hot afternoon, drew an eclectic and mesmerised audience – a lovely elderly woman of Scottish origin herself who chatted to Callum and was transported back to her childhood and her mother’s love of bagpipes; and a young boy who planted himself by the creek to absorb the unmistakeable sound of the pipes as he watched a group of ducklings splashing about. He didn’t leave til we did!
To experience Callum’s command of the bagpipes and the way he translates such an instrument steeped in tradition to the contemporary setting, check out his website – the bagpiper.com.au – and see what he offers.
Whether a ceremony, a party, function, or lessons, Callum’s got talent and enthusiasm in spades.
