It Has Been Way Too Long – Some Of My Pictures From 2016

I have negelected my blog for too long. You can find some of my posts and work on my Flickr Page , Facebook Page, My Website, and my Vimeo Page

Please find some of my work  from 2016 – it’s been a great year I have seen some of my favourite bands and we are only two months into the year.

 

Fat White Family – The Kazimier Liverpool 18th August 2014

This was one of the wildest gigs have been to in a long time. I was down the front with the super enthusiastic crowd – I could not move around much but managed to get some shots that reflect the energy of the gig.

Issues at Newcastle O2 Academy 17 Septmeber 2013

This is technically not a great picture but sometimes you just have to capture the moment otherwise it is gone. I was pleased to show some of the energy from the gig

Howler Paris Fleche d’Or 26 May 2012-2

Jordan Gatesmith – Howler one of the most exciting live bands around. Their debut album is also filled with energy and great songs.

More of my images from the gig are here:

Updates to Published Work and Portraits

I have finally got round to updating the published work section since my last update I have had work published in print, online, and on a CD cover. See my published work  section for all the details.

It was a real honour that Paul Rose selected my photographs for his cover and CD booklet

Paul Rose Ten CD Cover and Disc

 The CD is available to buy from his website www.paulrose.co.uk and on I tunes.

I have done more portraits lately and my images of  Holy Mammoth featured in the November issue of Narc. We don an outdoor shoot on a cold windy night in The Ouseburn. They were great to work with and appreciate their patience during the shoot especially considering I did not have an assistant on the night. Some of the images are in my Portraits section.

It has been  a long time I am still trying to organise a new website I think I am going to go with Photoshelter and plan to launch it sometime soon – I am lucky that I have been too busy taking photographs to arrange this.

Here is a link to a slide show on my fortcoming site:

Carl Barat At Newcastle Other Rooms

I have just added some images from Carl Barat‘s gig at Newcastle Other Rooms – where he played songs from his new self titled  solo album as well as Libertines and Dirty Pretty things favourites.

Please see the images from the gig in the Carl Barat Other Room  gallery.

New York Dolls Newcastle Cluny 2010

I am still recovering from the three night stint of New York Dolls at The Cluny here in Newcastle. It has been like the holiday season to be photographing a band I admire and have followed  for all of my adult life and before – which is a long time.

I was lucky enough to see Johnny Thunders play at Newcastle Riverside – back then never in my wildest dreams could I have envisaged seeing the New York Dolls playing at a pub under Byker Bridge – I feel now anything is possible.

In 2004 I saw their first reunion at Royal Festival Hall at the time I thought it was going to be their two gigs at that venue then they would go back to doing their solo work – since they have delivered two strong relevant albums songs from which they play in their live set-  they are not just are not just relying on past glories. It was good to hear some new songs at the gigs from their new album which they are recording here in Newcastle.


New York Dolls Royal Festival Hall 16 June 2004

You can see my photographs from their Royal Festival Hall gig on my Flickr page

Anyhow I must admit I felt more pressure than normal shooting these gigs as I really wanted to do the band justice at such keynote  gigs for our area.
