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.
Last Record Store Day I shot Superfood ( who have since released their debut album ” Don’t Say That”) at Sound It Out Records in Stockton. One of the pictures from then has been published in the super impressive Rock Atlas book.
This year I am hoping to get The Replacements – Alex Chilton vinyl
Happy New Year !
I am raising some money for the People’s Kitchen by donating all the profits from my E-Book Instamatic For The People to them for all sales until the end of January 2015.. The book is only £3.00 and £2.00 will be donated to the charity. They do an essential job supplying hot meals to the homeless. More information about the book and to buy and download it please visit http://store.blurb.co.uk/ebooks/96607-instamatic-for-the-people .
Happy Holidays from me to you. x
Two posts in quick succession – I am attempting to keep this updated more frequently
So far this month I have had work published in Classic Rock Prog, NME, and Music Week.
I went up to Edinburgh to do a shoot with North Atlantic Oscillation, which was so much fun. I am so proud that the images are featured on a full page.
A portrait of the Voyeurs is in the current issue of the NME – they are a great band and supported my A A D project – I am thrilled that it accompanies such a positive review of their new album Rhubarb Rhubarb.
I am a lucky omen or just fortunate enough to work with super talented bands as my picture accompanies another super positive review of the new Gandalf’s Fist album A Forest Of Fey.
There also some shots of Anathema from their gig in Glasgow. Also some images of music industry figures in last week,s Music Week
I am so grateful of these opportunities and I am always keeping on keeping on
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 .
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
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.
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
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.
