Editorial Director, MIKE GEE, may not be quite as talented a photographer as ARN's legendary IAN SHARP but he can handle a Canon EOS 7D - actually he's quite obsessed with taking photos - and recently has made it his 'thing' to contribute a slideshow or two to the ARN ICT Awards coverage. This year he chased kilts and in this slideshow some atmospheric shots, a haggis (seriously!), the eating of said haggis and some socials from the Champagne Reception.
The 2014 Awards carried a Scottish lilt with its brave hearts theme and some of the ICT industry's braver - or prouder - gentlemen decided that this was the time to wear/air a kilt and ceremonial garb. Editorial director, MIKE GEE, made it his business to capture as many of the kilts on display as he could - from the waist down, and then the waist up. Much to his surprise there were a lot of bashful men out there! Och aye! Many a knee was covered. He also found he attracted a few strange glances when squatting close to the ground to shoot a lower torso. However, the idea bore dirk! Here are the men in kilts - and many thanks to them and those Mike didn't capture for making the effort to get in the mood.
And then there was the 2014 ARN IT Industry Awards After Party - some were still going at 3.30am, others, well, they had departed a wee bit earlier. Well quite a bit earlier, truth be told. Highlights included a whole bunch of people bustin' up some fine moves on the dance floor. In fact, a whole lotta shakin' went down. They say every picture tells a story - certainly, some of these do. Photos by IAN SHARP.

Guiyu is the town in China where your old electronics go to die. For years, it's been one of the main locations in the world where PCs, phone and other discarded products are shipped in to be pulled apart and recycled. The work is dirty and even hazardous, but lately Guiyu has been trying to clean up its act. Following is a slideshow to give you an idea what it's like.
As dinner proceeded at the 2014 ARN IT Industry Awards, there was plenty of time for networking and catching up with old friends. ARN's photographer, Ian Sharp, continued to move amongst the crowd snapping highlights and conversations. Are you pictured?
