Hi, I am Roger Lever. I am a veterinary surgeon working here in Dumfries and Galloway but I am also a passionate photographer and a repetitive contributor to the Spring Fling Machine. I could talk till the cows come home about veterinary experiences BUT here I would like to tell you about this crazy idea that filled my head one morning last September after a restless nights sleep. I lay in bed for a while trying to recoup those thoughts that had been going through my head in that half sleep before one wakes up. I decided that this crazy idea was not so crazy after all and it was something I could actually achieve.
I had images of saltires, vikings and numerous people in my head. I thought 100 portraits might be a start but soon decided that 1000 would be more of a challenge. The name soon came to me 1000facesscotland.com This would be a name that could grab the Scottish people I thought especially in 2014 when Scotland enters its biggest and most eventful year for decades. This was an idea I could run with.
After a tremendous amount of work by friends and colleagues the project is coming together and I am hoping to introduce our Spring Fling visitors to the project as we approach our launch in July. Hopefully some of you will become part of it.
Drew Johnstone and myself put together this promotional video together with some very impressive background music composed by my son Christopher.
