Youth Strike 4 Climate Protest - 15 March 2019

21 March 19

Posted at 6:11

The students from all over the world went on strike to demand action on climate change. Almost 500 events had been registered to take place on Friday 15 March 2019. #FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15 year old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. This soon went viral and many students and adults began to protest outside of their own parliaments and local city halls all over the world.

Despite the Police photos it was a peaceful protest and the young students should be proud on what they are trying to achieve.

After making headlines around the world with her fake tattoo of Harry Styles on her cheek Kelsy Karter arrived in London to support The Struts on tour. The stunt definitely worked because the venue was packed from the beginning.

On the BBC website Karter is quote saying "The tattoo has gone. All that's left is the music, Which is what my rockstar team and I had planned all along."

It's been a while since I've been in a press pit at a music venue and you can't move due to the amount of photographers. The Struts were definitely a popular band that quite a few of us wanted to photograph.

I first photographed The Struts in 2012, Underground Festival in Gloucester to 200 people. 2019 and they are selling out venues around the world including the 4000 capacity O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire. Amazing stage performance and show and it's no surprise Foo Fighters said they are there favourite support band.

Chelsea Vs Manchester City - Carabao Cup Final 2019

The last and only time I saw Chelsea play Manchester City in a cup final was in the Full Members Cup 1986. A David Speedie hatrick Chelsea won 5-4. You will be hard done by to find a cup final with that many goals and a hatrick. Fast forward to 2019 and Chelsea played City in the Carabao Cup League Final. It was one of there better performances with City being clear favourites. City eventually won on penalties.

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.
