The Browning Band – Earache Records

The Browning Band - Earache Records
Recently I did a shoot for Earache Records of The Browning, an electronicore band from the US. They were only in the UK for a day as part of their European tour so I only had a couple of hours with them. Earache hired 3 laser machines and a smoke machine and pretty much let me go mad with them! It was a lot trickier than I  initially thought, as although lasers may lo[...]

2012 – A year of photos

What an incredible year. My first proper year of full time photography. I have been lucky enough to get to travel all over the world. From one of the most spectacular, epic weddings I have ever seen, in Hong Kong, to a very good friends' wedding in Australia. I have driven over 9000 miles to Mongolia, and spent 2 weeks photographing a University Ski Trip in the the hi[...]

The Mongol Rally & some recent shots

So I thought I'd do one last blog post before I set off on the most ambitious trip of my life. For those of you who don't know, I am taking part in the Mongol Rally, a 10, 000 mile odyssey over mountain ranges, deserts and through 19 countries from London to Mongolia. To call it epic would be an understatement. You really are on your own out there. I plan on taking m[...]

Earache Records – Diamond Plate promo shoot

Earache Records got in touch again and asked me to do a promo shoot for a US band named Diamond Plate who were heading over to tour with Anthrax. I got to London about mid day and felt sorry for the guys, they had only arrived from over the pond about an hour before seeing my ugly mug, and had to spend the next couple of hours being ordered around. They were very acco[...]

HMV Next Big Thing – Earache records

Earache records emailed me and asked me to cover an event they were putting on in Manchester as part of HMV's Next Big Thing festival. The premise was to general document the day from the bands setting up, back stage and live shots with a few promo shots of each band too. The three bands playing were Evile, Cerebral Bore and Savage Messiah. They were a great bunch and[...]

My photos in Kerrang & Big Cheese Magazine!!

I received some great news from my friends in The Morning After last week that the photos I took of them were going to be used in Kerrang Magazine. Kerrang is one of the top selling Rock and Metal magazines in the UK and is also sold world wide so I was more than a little chuffed that my work would be in there! Below is a copy, you can see my photo on the top left pa[...]

The Morning After – Music Video Shoot

My good friends in The Morning After asked me to come down and take some stills of them shooting a music video for their new song America (check them out here ). With free flowing booze for everyone all night provided by V bar how could I say no? The video was shot in a field with bonfires, fireworks and a wall of guitar cabs as a backdrop. It was an awesome night and[...]

Band Photos: Three Thrones

So my friends asked me to take some photos of their band at the weekend and of course, I obliged. We found a great derelict warehouse by the river in the Hythe, Colchester. There was a nice sunset too to add to it so the shots turned out quite moody. Check out their band Three Thrones on facebook here. I actually really enjoy shooting bands although they are a pain i[...]
