Warning Different Circles Video

We recently filmed a performance video for the song Different Circles by Warning. They are a really exciting live band, and I hope the video captures some of their energy. I am really proud of it .

 

St. Vincent The Sage Gateshead

It is just great when you get to see a band /artist that you are not familiar with. To my shame I had only heard   a few songs Annie Clark on You Tube – but I am now the owner of both her albums. The power of music and seeing a great live band !

Actually may have seen her way back with the Polyphonic Spree.

Here is a picture from the gig and you can click through to see the set on Flickr

The Voyeurs Manchester Night & Day 15th August 2014

It was so great to catch up with The Voyeurs ( previously Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs).

Although the band were delayed on the motorway getting to the gig , they still found the time to do some photographs with me after their soundcheck.

Here are three portraits done before the gig – one of which included me standing on top of chair which in turn was on top of a table. I think it was worth it. Looking forward to seeing them again later in 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.

My Year In Music Photography So Far…

I feel I should be updating my blog more since the turn of the year. Instead I have made a slide show of my music photography so far.

For me it has been an outstanding year for music, and I have seen some of my favourite and feel privileged to have photographed some of them.

I have also filmed four music videos in 2014, with more to follow before the end of the year

Thanks again to Goy Boy McIlroy for permission to use their song The Actor – which I have used to go with the slide show

Keeping Busy

I am extremely thankful that I have been very busy this year taking photographs and making videos. So unfortunately I have neglected this blog , to keep things fresh I am adding a few of my images that remind me of summer.
