Collapse and Skreamer live at the Camden Underworld

Collapse and Skreamer live at the Camden Underworld

On Saturday I took myself along to see Collapse touring in support of Skreamer, at the legendary Camden Underworld. I gadn't shot a live music performance for a while, and was looking forward to testing the D750's low light performance in what is typically a very dark venue.

Blue Cross Animal Hospital Shoot

Blue Cross Animal Hospital Shoot

I was recently commissioned to shoot the animals and staff at one of the centres for the Blue Cross animal charity, but with the brief to try and reflect real life rather than staged stock photography, which relieved me greatly! It's a lot of fun to capture the reality of caring, dedicated staff at work, and I really enjoy the challenge of accurately reflecting real life in a veterinary practice in a way that is visually appealing but still conveys a story. Photography for me is always about showing a narrative.

Rainy Night in London

Rainy Night in London

It had been a while since I had a chance to partake in some street photography, but in this case I got to do it in my favourite weather - rain! Nothing like putting on some choice music (London Grammar is a great mood setter) and losing myself in just shooting the streets of our fine capital.

In the Studio With Collapse

In the Studio With Collapse

I spent some time in the studio with the London metal band Collapse as they recorded the final vocals and guitar work along with mixing for their coming album. Having always loved seeing behind the scenes candid shots of my favourite bands (in the days of album inserts!) I really enjoyed getting to capture the energy and creativity of music being made.

Another Shoot for XCite in Bristol.

Another Shoot for XCite in Bristol.

Things having gone well previously, I was asked to work another event for the company. Very much the same thing, but this time a trek away in Bristol. This time the set-up was outside in the middle of Bristol's main shopping area on a bright sunny day.

Event Shoot for XCite Events and Promotions

Event Shoot for XCite Events and Promotions

On Saturday I was hired to photograph a promotional event in the Oracle Shopping Centre, Reading. After a frustrating journey there from London (poxy Hammersmith and City line!) it was a fun day of photographing the promotional staff (two on roller-skates!) signing people up to take part in the bingo event where people who won received vouchers for the restaurants in the centre. Or for one lucky boy a giant (and I mean giant) cookie. Lucky he won after the presenter had been filling his head with thoughts of the cookie!
