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.
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. More pics to follow !
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, wich more to follow soon.
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.
Catched up with Twin Peaks for their Benicassim set. Find below some of my fave pictures.

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.
For the 2nd year, I was part of Standon Calling Festival Official Photographers Team. You'll find below some of my favorite photos of the weekend.
I had a very busy summer which explains the lack of Updates on the website. I'll try to put a few more galleries up on the Blog soon to keep the site lively...
There you go, my last European Festival of the season : Bestival.
This year, I was one of the Official Photographers for the lovely people at Standon Calling Festival. A great festival for family with so many activities that it is totally impossible to get bored. Some cool acts especially on the Bella Union, BBC Introducing stages.
Second year taking photos at Benicassim for Getty/Redferns. I love this festival ! You can see my favorite images here. Blur were amazing !!! I've also bumped into some members of Public Enemy, or are they Roadies ? They were super cool.
In April, I have covered Coachella Festival for Line of Best Fit and for Hunger Online.
I have put a selection of my favorite images here. It was great to be there again and see so many talented performers. My highlights were definitely FKA Twigs and Florence and the Machine shows.
I also took some portraits of Mac DeMarco, Stromae, Toro Y Moi ...

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.
I loved it ! So happy to finally be able to go there and photograph. I've been wanting to attend for a few years now. I got the chance to meet up many artists and do portraits sessions. More pics to follow !
