Bastille - O2 Brixton Academy 9 Feb 2019

Posted at 5:00

I remembered the first time I shot Bastille in Gloucester at the Underground Fest and Leefest in 2012 and if you were lucky enough to be at one of these shows you realised this band was destined to be big and play legendary venues like the O2 Brixton Academy. I was fortunate to capture Bastilles' first of two sold out shows in London for Empics Entertainment.

Behemoth Live at London's O2 Forum Kentish Town Feb 2019

A first for me photographing any type of metal band.

Behemoth headlined London's O2 Forum Kentish Town and I was heading in to the unknown. Looking at their WiKi page Behemoth are a Polish Death Metal band from Gdańsk and formed in 1991 and quickly established themselves in the Polish underground metal scene. Many years on they are in London playing to a sold out O2 Forum.

Retrospective Exhibition of Don McCullin's Work at Tate Britain

04 February 19

Posted at 7:42

Don McCullin is probably one of my all time favourite photographers and to be invited to the photo call at Tate Britain was an absolute must. This huge exhibition showcases some of the most powerful photographs captured over the last sixty years of which many are  McCullin's iconic war photographs. Reading the press release over 250 photographs on show and all printed by McCullin himself. This is an exhibition not to be missed.

Dates 5 February - 6 May 2019

Hope Not Hate & GMB Present Billy Bragg live at Islington Assembly Hall Jan 2019

Posted at 11:55

Hope Not Hate & GMB Present Billy Bragg live at Islington Assembly Hall. The concert was originally scheduled for University London Union on 25th January. The joint decision to move the gig is in solidarity with outsourced workers currently in dispute with the University of London. Their union, the IWGB has been involved in a campaign to secure outsourced workers equal terms and conditions with directly employed staff for the past year. On 10 December, they called for a boycott of events at all University of London venues.

According to Instagram these are my most liked pictures on Instagram in 2018. Eight of these were shot at the same gig - One OK Rock, a Japanese Rock n Pop band and the other was the birth of my new son George.

I have been so fortunate to have photographed the many bands and artists throughout 2018 and all the football matches in between. A massive thank you to Ed de Sancha at Avalon and Gary at Frozen In Motion for their hard work arranging the passes.

End of Year Review 2018

Posted at 9:56

Wow, it's been an amazing year for me but also emotional with the passinbg oif my mum back in March. I was able to capture my mum's journey through her illness and share my words and pictures with The British Lung Foundation - https://www.blf.org.uk/your-stories/photographing-my-mums-copd

Half way through the year I switched from Nikon D4 to Fuji X-T2. Definitely a positive move.

I've been fortunate to have photographed many top and amazing artists and bands throughout the year, Premiership football, cycled a 1000 miles over the Alps, festivals and my first taste photographing boxing. The best part of the year has been meeting so many amazing, inspirational and talented photographers along the way.

Boxing at the O2 Indigo - Battle Of The Bodies 2018

29 December 18

Posted at 1:55

What a way to sign off 2018 than photographing a charity boxing event at London's O2 Indigo, Battle Of The Bodies with top of the bill Rogan O'Connor Vs Kirk Miller. A very well organised event and very entertaining. Even though it was a charity event I thought the standard of boxing was very good and enjoyable to watch. It was a top evening and I have so much respect for all the fighters that worked hard to step in to that ring. Please look out for details for future events in 2019 - https://www.instagram.com/battleofthebodiesboxing/

28 December 18

Posted at 6:21

Last gig of the year, Richard Ashcroft playing what would be called an intimate gig considering his last couple of performances and shows coming up. It's been an amazing year for me in Music Photography and it was from a Richard Ashcroft show that one of my images was used to promote his latest tour. Looking forward to what 2019 brings.
