Standon Calling 2018 - Day 2

Each year Standon Calling gets bigger and better. This was my fourth time shooting the festival but sadly due to other commitments I could only photograph day two with George Ezra headlining the main stage. Definitely the festival as the go to festival to see the next big artist or band. I finally got to see and photograph Shame who for me is the band of the moment. By far the best live performance I have seen in ages but hidden gems were Nelson Can and Ten Tonnes aka Ethan Barnett. Superb live sets from both. Strong performances from Genghar and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club before the headline act George Ezra took to the stage. I remember shooting a portrait of George Ezra at the Old Blue Last for Burberry on an iPhone 5. Back then you knew with the songs he performed that night he was always destined to headline a festival slot. Another quality line-up from Alex and his team at Standon and looking forward to see what 2019 brings.

V Festival - Hylands Park 2017

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.
