Primavera Sound is one of my favorite festival to attend. This year, with their New Normal Line Up, they offered a 50/50 gender balanced Line-Up. A huge step for the industry where diversity isn’t so well represented. Click the image below for some photos of the event.
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.
No updates in a while. I have attended Governors Ball and Bonnaroo Festivals and I've had so many great opportunities to photograph amazing musicians there. No offence to PRs, but in the US it's better or should I say, easier !So... I have new portraits of Cage The Elephant, Arctic Monkeys, Flaming Lips, Janelle Monae, Phoenix, Washed Out, MS MR, Phosphorescent, Little Dragon and Vance Joy ! They were all super sweet and I can not wait to do more portraits soon.
I was also allowed to photograph Cage The Elephant full set and I've put my favorite images here. They are definitely my favorite band to photograph at the moment. So energetic ! I Love it ! I also did a little behind the scenes feature of Californian band Allah-Las.
Before that, I was commissioned to photograph Volcano Choir at Primavera. It was amazing ! I have never heard of them before. Only heard of Bon Iver (Justin Vernon's other band) but It was a great discovery. I was so glad to be able to work with them.
I've also had some photographs on Rolling Stone magazine : MS MR, Allah-Las, James Blake, my super sweet Phoenix photo, Avett Brothers and Sam Smith. Also got some of my Primavera's photos in. Also my La Roux shot on NME magazine. Some on Bilboard and Fuse too.
Straight after Bonnaroo, I've headed to Hurricane Festival in Germany. My photos are on the Getty website. The Line-Up was a bit too Emo for me in general and a lot of German bands that I have never heard about but it was my second year there and a great experience so far. I was happy to be able to catch Interpol, Preatures and my other favorite : Reignwolf ! I made it to the Grammy website with The Black Keys and the Guardian, MusikExpress with a Spoon photo and Live Nation.
I also shot Spoon in London for the Line of Best Fit. It was amazing but unfortunately little lights. I'm so happy that they are back.
Tuesday, I am flying to Poland for Open'er.
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.
