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.
In October, I went on tour with the amazing Twin Peaks for French Magazine Rock & Folk. My photos and article were published in the 60th birthday issue of the magazine. Click on the photo below to see more !
At the end of August, I have photographed Afropunk Festival in NYC for Live Nation TV. Such an amazing festival fighting against homophobia, racism and sexism.
Hello,I have not been able to put that many updates in the last few weeks. I am just back from Open'er Festival in Poland. I also shot : * Savages in Berlin for Line of Best Fit * Tom Odell at the Lido for Redferns/Getty
I went to Primavera Festivals in Barcelona and in Porto with amazing performances such as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Blur, Liars, Deerhunter that I've seen 4 times in a week ! I shot portraits of Local Natives and Liars. I also shot Hurricane Festival in Germany for Redferns/Getty. Queens of The Stone Age were great !! I also went to British Sea Power and missed Wavves unfortunately. They got stuck in traffic and never made it to the show. Poor them !
And to finish I went to Calexico and Patti Smith, they played for the anniversary of a Berlin's venue called Zitadelle. There is a massive update on my flickr page from Primavera pictures. More will follow soon.
I had some work published in a few online magazines, mostly announcing Arctic Monkeys New Album and Bassist Kim Deal leaving the Pixies... Fuse, Billboard, Vulture, MusikExpress, Entertainment Weekly, Time, and a few American Radios Websites 101.9, Khou, Rock 108.
I will post more photos from the Festivals that I have shot in the next few weeks. I am leaving soon for France & New York.
I got back from a five weeks tour with Nada Surf last sunday. It was a great experience. I will put pictures up as soon as I have got time. So weird to be back ! Now I just need to find a very nice band to take me on tour again. Since I got back, I shot Passion Pit at the Forum and a couple of the MENCAP Little Noise Sessions gigs. I shot Richard Hawley who was of course amazing, Prince Charles, Noah and The Whale and a few other bands. It was a great set up in a church I've never ever seen before and only five minutes walk from my place. If you want to give to MENCAP, here you go.
Earlier this year, I shot a couple of portraits for my friends' band which is called "Winters". Their LP is now out on Van Records. My picture has been used on the insert of the Vinyl and for their Press pack. They had some good reviews, if you're into Metal, check them out ! The last couple of weeks, I also shot Kimbra, Patti Smith and Perfume Genius for the Line of Best Fit. I also shot a couple of gigs at the Roundhouse for the Itunes Festival, Madness, Reverend and the Makers, Kindness and Hot Chip. All the pictures can be find on Getty website.
The Guardian online also used two of my pictures of Lianne La Havas and Richard Hawley to illustrate their Mercury Prize nominations.
I am going away on tour with a band very soon but I have got a couple of beautiful gigs scheduled before I set off. I will post a few pictures at the end of next week.
This week, I was lucky enough to shoot Kiss twice !! I attended their press conference where they were talking about their new photography book. Unfortunately they didn't wear their trademark make-up but I got to shoot their show at the Forum too. It was completely amazing. I only knew a couple of songs but they totally ROCKED IT and I really hope to see them again. I couldn't believe how good they were ! It was great to shoot a band with so much energy, posing for the camera and with amazing lights ! Everything was perfect, despite the 29 other photographers next to me :) I also shot "The tallest Man on Earth" in Hackney for The Line of Best Fit and The Psychedelic Furs at The Garage.
