My 2015

2015 continues the trend of the past few years of destroying all expectations. I am so so thankful for all the people that stand in front on my camera and those that stand beside me while I do whatever it is I’m doing. Much love to you all.

This is a snapshot of what I got up to this year, lots of bands, mostly photos and a couple of videos. Not particularly comprehensive, but some of the work I like the most or enjoyed shooting the most.

Thank you to anybody reading who has looked before or is looking for the first time. I hope 2016 brings everything you need and plenty of what you want.

Much love

Eliot Fisk. One of the worlds most revered classical guitarists. Recording one of the most difficult guitar pieces written. Two of us in the room. Fairly intense. Lovely guy. Jaw dropping talent. Eliot Fisk

Man of Moon

Man of Moon are infuriatingly good. They make me wish I’d had such a clear picture in my head when I was their age. They are killing it, and will definitely keep doing that. I shot this image which was used as the cover for their debut single, and also shot the video shortly after. Big love to JW & Parklife for bringing me on board for this project!

Michael Cassidy. His voice. 

This year Michael and I drove past a man who had a framed 6×4 photo of Phil Collins on the dashboard of his car.

Nick Bruce. Swag. Nick Bruce

  So, Prides, they’ve had a not bad year eh? When I started pulling photos out for this blog, I realised they were the first people I photographed in 2015, in their studio (kitchen) for DIY magazine. I absolutely love the band, so it’s been such a pleasure to be there again at points through the year, shooting a lyric video with lego & my cat, some promo stuff for their Autumn tour and a high point for me, their set opening T in the Park. Higher Love indeed.

The Prodigy closed the 2nd stage at TITP this year. Total dream to shoot while also being a massive challenge getting through the strobes.

White. Laying the tiny Poetry Club. Kicked off big this year. Tonnes of fun. White

And finally…Kayus of Young Fathers. A phenomenon. Incredible live, great tunes. Playing here at the SAY Awards, which they win last year. Young Fathers

I couldn’t round out my year without mention of this one, who did the good deed and said yes. Cat, you win!
