My Top Nine 2018 0n Instagram

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.

Roll on 2019

End of Year Review 2018

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/

Richard Ashcroft - O2 Forum Kentish Town - Dec 2018

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.

Always a pleasure photographing the club you have supported since being a young boy. Not the greatest of performances but Chelsea's single goal from Eden Hazard puts Chelsea in to the semi finals against Tottenham Hotspur

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.
