First time at the Emirates Stadium as a photographer to capture Arsenal Vs Qarabağ FK in the Europa League. Definitely one of the best stadiums in the Premier League. The Arsenal team filled with talented youth won one nil and qualified through to the next round against Bate.

Lead singer of The Duke Spirit Liela Moss released her debut solo album My Name Is Safe in Your Mouth on Bella Union. Liela is definitely one of the best female modern vocalist and her show at The Lexington was one of my highlights 2018 with a full tour expected 2019.

One OK Rock - Live at Heaven 5 December 2018

What a show from Japanese rock band One OK Rock. Formed in Tokyo, Japan in 2005 and the band currently consists of Takahiro Moriuchi vocals, Toru Yamashita on guitar, Ryota Kohama on bass and Tomoya Kanki on drums.

It's probably the most energetic crowd I have seen packed in to Heaven. Looking forward to their return to the UK and have no doubt they will be playing bigger venues.

It's the third time I got to photograph South East Finest, Shame this year. As a photographer you can't get bored shooting this lot. Fantastic live and probably the most exciting band of 2018. Expect loads more frantic festival performances in 2019.

Millwall Vs Birmingham City 28 Nov 2018

Always enjoy photographing down at the New Den. No matter what the stadium attendance is you always get a loud atmosphere especially when they play Birmingham City. 

Birmingham City eventually won 0-2 and Millwall had Ryan Leonard sent off early in the second half.

I was very fortunate to have been in LA in 2017 and photograph this unknown artist to me live at the legendary Troubadour, West Hollywood. Since then Jain has become a major artist who is selling out big venues around the world. Tonight Jain plays to a sold out crowd at London's Electric Brixton.

Olivia - Electric Brixton supporting Jain 27 Nov 2018

Posted at 2:25

When you see Jain pop up on the list of shows to photograph it was a must and equally important to discover who the support artist was. Jain's support was a young lady by the name of Olivia. I later found out she's a singer songwriter from East London. I tried googling but had no luck so I was really left in the dark until I got to the venue.

 

Front of house at the Electric Brixton did say she had an amazing voice and she wasn't wrong. Definitely a star in the making and look out for future shows because this artist has so much talent.

 

You can catch Olivia supporting Millie Turner 5 December at Paper Dress Vintage

Brentford Vs Middlesbrough - Griffin Park 24 Nov 2018

25 November 18

Posted at 7:27

Robert Rowan, Brentford's Technical Director sadly passed away of heart failure age 26. I've never met Robert but reading the program notes and just being at today's game photographing you know he was loved by the club and played a major part to the growing success of Brentford FC. A just giving page has been set up in memory of Robert Rowan https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/robert-rowan-5

 

Today's game was the day I got to use Fuji's latest lens - Filmfilm Fujinon XF 200mm F2. With Kick-off at 17:30 it would be the perfect test to see how good this lens would be in low light condition played at a fast pace.

Unfortunately not the greatest of games and badly positioned myself at the wrong end of the pitch the lens was still put through it paces and I was able to capture key moments of the game. Middlesbrough eventually came out 1-2  winners and moved to second place in the championship two points behind the leaders Norwich.

The game was in memor

Wet - Live at O2 Arena Supporting Florence and the Machine 22 Nov 2018

23 November 18

Posted at 9:11

I arrived at London's O2 Arena nice early to catch Florence and the Machine support band Wet. An American indie pop group originating from Brooklyn, New York.

This would be the first time I get to test and use the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm F2. Fuji's newst memeber to it's lens family and it did not disappoint. Half the length of my old Nikon 300mm Prime and half it's weight but comes at a hefty price of around £5000. Forgetting the price I loved using this lens and glad Wet was the band I got to test this out.

I can only start off by saying wow wow wow, what a show to photograph. By far the best live show I've shot this year. So much fun but unfortunately over in super quick time as we only get the first three songs. It's the first time I got to photograph one of her shows and look forward to many more.

World COPD Day 2018

21 November 2018 World COPD Day (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)

 

Mum

My mum passed away 23 March 2018 from an horrible illness that not a lot of people know about. My mum definitely lived life to the full and even during her final stages she would be joking with everyone. 

Her catch phrase to anyone who asked how she was feeling was "I'm still dodging the undertaker"

Last Saturday my family had put on a quiz night in memory of my mum. It was a night of celebration but also to raise much needed funds and awareness for the British Lung Foundation and MacMillan nurses who had been amazing during my mum’s final stages and the support they gave to family and friends.

We managed to raise £1600. Each charity receiving £800.
 
To coincide with the quiz I have written a short piece on COPD, my mums journey and my lack of knowledge of an illness so serious. It's World COPD Day and thank you to Nancy at the British Lung Foundation who helped me share my story to raise awareness.

I had not really heard any of Tom Misch's tracks until the lead up to this show and I feel disappointed I had not discovered this artist sooner. An amazing voice and talent I will definately been photographing one of Tom's shows again soon.

Crewel Intentions Live at the Roundhouse supporting Johnny Marr 11 Nov 2018

I always try and make it to the support band or artist and so glad I did for Johnny Marr on Sunday night. Meet Crewel Intentions, Chilli Jesson’s new project since Palma Violets. Definitely did not disappoint with their Nick Cave-esque set and probably produced one of my favourite tunes of the year - Youth In Overload.

It was also nice to see Rupert Greaves ex lead vocal from Blind Pilgrim, a friends band from a few years ago on keys. 

Definitely looking forward to a headline tour and album after this performance. Hopefully 2019?
