Dartford Vs Bognor Regis Town - National League South - 7 October 2017

12 October 17

Posted at 8:49

Finally up and running and got to shoot a game now that I have my non-league licence to apply for photo accreditation for all non-league games. Still have a lot to learn when it comes to framning, cropping, adding metadata to each image you want to use throughout the game and of course uploading in super quick time. It will become second nature as time goes by with the more games I shoot. There are so many sport photographers out there that inspires me and wanting tio improve in this genre.

Todays game was Dartford Vs Bognore Regis Town with Dartford eventually coming out as 3-1 winners. An exciting game that keeps Dartford close to the top and will definitely been seen as one of the favourites to be fighting for promotion to the National League where this team and the stadium belong.

Sleaford Mods live at O2 Academy Brixton, London

Sleaford Mods formed in 2007 in Nottingham. The band features vocalist Jason Williamson and musician Andrew Fearn. The band described their work as electronic munt minimalist punk-hop rants for the working class with such topics as unemployment, modern working life, celebrities and pop culture, capitalism and society in general. 

After seeing the duo at Glastonbury in 2015 I have been fortunate to document the band on a number of occassions and they do not disappoint.

My second attempt at shooting a football match and can't wait to photograph more.

Crystal Palace hosted Huddersfield Town in the Third Round of the Carabao Cup and came out as one nil winners and will now face Bristol City away. An excellent result and played very well considering the difficult start they have had this season.

Venice Beach Skate Park

18 September 17

Posted at 11:30

I've been fortunate to have gone to Los Angeles twice with work and during that time I had time to hang out in and around Venice Beach.

It's was always on my radar of places I wanted to go due to The Doors being one of my favourite bands and that they were formed in Venice back in 1965 but I never knew how good Venice Beach would be until I got there. It instantly became one of my favourite places to hang out and take pictures of talented skaters at the Venice Beach Skate Park. It's weird, wonderful and very unique. Hope to get back soon.

Below are a collection of photos during my two trips in 2016 and 2017.

Sunday On Blackheath

A late night flight back from Rhodes the night before with a two hour delay, home, few hours sleep then headed to my local music festival On Blackheath. A two day event that included Travis and The Libertines headline the main stages each day.

It's the only festival I know where I would have photographed Basil Brush

Summer of Festivals 2017

29 August 17

Posted at 2:54

There are so many festivals that take place in the UK alone. Last year more than a thousand festivals took place and in 2015 it was calculated accoriding to the FT that 3.5m people attended a festival with the market estimated to be worth ¬£2bn to the economy. This is astonishing figures but yet so many festivals disappear after one year. Standon Calling in Hertfordhsire and Lee Fest in Kent are two festivals I love. I've seen both grow at a steady and sensible rate with the line-up getting better and stronger each year and one that competes with some of the so called bigger festivals. 

 

Glastonbury 2017The Lemon Twigs

This year I was very fortunate to have documented a few festivals and after ten years I finally got to shoot Glastonbury. Unfortunately this did not include the Pyramid and the Other Stage but still an experience and got to see and shoot so many amazing bands and artists on all the remaining stages. Even got a cheeky portrait of Brad Pitt on his own while watching Future Islands at the legendary John Peel Stage.

Glastonbury 2017Glastonbury 2017

My festival trips covered Glastonbury, Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Festivals in Hyde Park, Citadel, Standon Calling and V Festival Hylands Park. Some legendary acts including Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers, Stevie Nicks, Tears For Fears, Grace Jones and Gary Numan have performed this summer along side many other bands and artists that include Kings of Leon, Maggie Rogers, Foals, Slaves, Editiors, Laura Marling, Phoenix, Nadia Rose, Pink and Craig David to name a few and JAIN who will be the one who stands out for me after shooting her at the Troubadour in LA at the beginning of the year and seeing this artist grow and perform to thousands in a very short time.

Crystal Palace Vs Ipswich Town - Carabao Cup Second Round 22 August 2017

23 August 17

Posted at 10:27

I was very fortunate to have been given the opportunity by my local news paper the News Shopper to shoot a Premiership side in the Carabao Cup Second Round. Crystal Palace faced an inform Ipswich Town at Selhurst Park knowing it would be a difficult home game for them. A late James McArthur brace put Crystal Palace through to the third round. Definitely want to shoot more football games and sport in general but realised it's all in the lenses. The lens I had wasn't great and involved me doing a lot of cropping. Difficult to keep up with those who have there 600mm prime lens. Definitely going in thr right direction.

V Festival - Hylands Park 2017

21 August 17

Posted at 11:21

I've been to V Festival Hylands Park, Chelmsford a few times but never managed to shoot it. 2017 saw the likes of Pink and Jay Z bring their huge production to stage and perform to the UK. The day I was shooting included Busted, Madness, James Arthur, Anne-Marie, Jess Glynne, Craig David and Pink to name a few. I was one of the lucky ones to be selected to shoot Pink from the Sound Desk only for photographers to be told by security who obviously never got the memo that photographers were not allowed in the sound desk area. All disappointed and annoyed so back out to the crowd we went trying to get that clear image.

From The Pit

15 August 17

Posted at 10:15

I'm always fascintaed by the people who managed to get to the front and hold their position and more often than not for many hours before the gig or festival starts. These are die hard fans who have waited along time to get as close as possible to the stage. I love photographing the front row and over the years built up a collection of images from the pit. Most artists and venues give photographers three songs and no flash. You never know what to expect until the show starts and you never know who will be standing directly behind you. In the space of 15 minutes I make sure I try to capture the excitment of the front.

Bros At The Top Of The o2

I definitely wasn't going to say no to a last minute photo call with Bros at the top of the o2. I'm not great with heights but I knew the views would make for great photos, especially with Matt and Luke Goss.

Me and three other photographers climbed to the top waiting for Bros to arrive and they were on top form and fun to shoot.

The last shot had to be a selfie on my iPhone by Luke Goss.
