Rebellion Festival, NSE Weekender, Portraits, and Published Work

It was so good to be able to photograph at Rebellion Festival. It was an intense day I worked none stop from 1pm until the New York Dolls wrapped up the day at 2 o’clock on Sunday morning – it was intense but so much fun I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It was all things punk including sticks of Blackpool punk rock – I hope to be there next year.

I have put some of the photographs of New York Dolls, Penetration, and UK Subs in their appropriate gallery. I will be uploading images of other bands soon.

The following night I was photographing the National Society For Epilepsy event at Newcastle Cluny. I shot the previous event back in April – it is a fantastic showcase for the leading North East bands but more importantly it is a worthwhile cause. The Sunday night was headlined by Ever Since The lake Caught Fire who delivered a short sharp set and left the crowd wanting more. The images are in the National Society For Epilepsy gallery

I done a photo shoot with Union Choir for Narc magazine which proved to be fun. It was outdoors on a typical rainy summer’s evening in South Shields. The first location had to be abandoned because of too many chavs hanging around the bandstand. We then ended up in another nearby park.

The band were really co-operative and it was easy to work with them they seemed on the whole to be relaxed in front of the camera – I was expecting five members but there was actually eight. Overall I am pleased with the shots and have put some of them in the Portrait Gallery. Check out the band at the Union Choir Myspace.

I have also updated my published work section including recent shots of Carl Barat, Adam, Green, and Jesse Malin. I am also pleased that The Doors Alive are using my photographs from Newcastle Academy from back in January to promote their forthcoming tour. I also please to see my Evolution images used by Culture Deluxe magazine

My Instax For The people has gone quiet this month I have added a few images to the gallery but I need more people so if you see me with my Instax camera you know I could be looking for you to participate in my project.

It was a pleasure to shoot at both days and document some of the finest current  North East bands all playing at this fundraiser for a very good cause.
