A few years ago, I had the opportunity to start touring as a Merch Manager. it enabled me to freelance full-time and split my time between photography and touring. I’m passionnate about Music and I am always happy to go on tour and grab the opportunities as they arise being in Merch, Production or Photography. In February and March I was offered to work with Maggie Rogers. One of my favorite moment of the Tour was when she invited Florence Welch to sing “Light On” with her at London Brixton Academy. Such an amazing performance ! Click on the photograph below to see a selection of pictures used on social medias and in the press.
Earlier this year, I worked with Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow. Two weeks of concerts featuring artists from around the globe alongside the best Scottish talents. I have photographed acts as diverse as John Grant, Graham Nash, Niteworks, KT Tunstall, Mariza, The Comos Mamas, Songhoy Blues and many more in this two weeks period.
My highlight last year (if not all time highlight) was to work on a few of Christine & The Queens shows to photograph the images to be used by the press during the UK Tour. Click on the photo below to see the gallery, more soon !
In November, I followed Miles Kane for the day to document his Barrowland Ballroom show. I had such a great time photographing his show, amazing performer ! A few pics below.
In August, I headed to NYC for Afropunk to cover the festival for a fashion research Agency.
Located in the scenic grounds of Drumlanrig Castle, one hour drive from Glasgow, Electric Fields Festival is one of the most exciting music festivals in Scotland. The Line-Up this year included Young Fathers, Idlewild, Ezra Furman, Idles, Ghostpoet, Honeyblood and many more. I was glad to be part of the official photography Team. A few pictures below and more infos on their website.
I had the chance to Tour for a month with Calexico again in July and August. They played a lot of amazing shows, my favorite venue being the Acropolis in Athens !
In July, I have escaped Calexico Tour for a weekend to photograph my favourite band ever at the British Summer Time in Hyde Park where they celebrated their 40 years of career. A rare sight of Robert Smith in the sunshine and a beautiful show. One of my photo and review was run in the French magazine "Rock & Folk".
For the second year in a row, I was part of the photography team for Pointu Festival in south of France. A little free festival by the sea with the likes of The Oh Sees, Sleaford Mods, FIDLAR, Carpenter Brut, Deap Vally, and many more playing this year. I can’t wait to be back there again.
Glad to have been part of Trnsmt Festival 2018 photo Team this year. I have covered the first two days before setting off on Tour with Calexico.
I had the best time again this year at Primavera in Barcelona. Thanks to the bands who got me in and to those I have partied with. A small selection of photos below.
Back from Tour, I got commissionned to photograph Belle & Sebastian & LCD Soundsystem shows at the Galvanizer Yards in Glasgow for DF concerts. Here is a sneak peek preview with more photos to follow ! Sylvan Esso, Young Fathers and Lylo also played with them.
Earlier this month, I got the chance to spend a week on tour with Josh T Pearson. He is well known for his work with Lift to Experience and has just released a new Album "The Straight Hits!" The shows were amazing ! Some pictures below.
Beautiful production and such a fun show. It was a pleasure to get to photograph Arcade Fire at their Glasgow show.
Another great tour came to an end. Always a pleasure to Tour with Calexico. One month on the road. More pics soon !
Later last month, I won a scholarship to attend Yeah Field Trip in the US. A week packed with workshops, talks and hands on events for creatives - mostly photographers. I travelled to LA and Santa Barbara and spent five days in El Capitan Canyon, trying to better my skills, exchange ideas and getting inspired by other people. Here is their website if you're interested to know more. I've added a few images to my portfolio, including the one below.
I was the official photographer of Celtic Connections in Glasgow this year. The festival focuses on the roots of traditional Scottish music and also features international folk, roots and world music artists. My highlight was Bothy Culture & Beyond at The SSE Hydro shot for Celtic Connections and BBC Scotland.
Here is one of my fave image of the show. I will post a bigger gallery as soon as I find the time to do so !
A few months ago, I was commissioned by Paolo Nutini and his Team and documented his hometown show at Paisley Abbey. It was a huge honor to work with him and produce this on/off stage photo reportage. I can't show you much yet apart from this photo below of the beautiful Church lighting.
