Since I’ve been shooting so many gigs lately, I figured it was high time to establish a band photography identity online that’s separate to this site. You can find it over at High Voltage Shots!
Last night I shot popular Greek power metallers Firewind and their opening band, the Norwegian/German outfit Leaves’ Eyes, at the O2 Academy in Islingon, London for MetalMouth. Power metal isn’t really my scene but both bands played really strong sets, with Firewind’s virtuoso guitarist, Gus G, putting on a particularly impressive display of his characteristic […]

I’m currently taking a well-earned break from VFX studio work for a while, and am using the time to catch up on some gig photography again. Last night I shot a few metal bands playing at Underworld in Camden, and you can see some of the shots on my Flickr page.

I’ll begin putting them back onto the site in the next few days, followed by downloadable PDF versions where necessary at a later stage. I’ve also begun […]
Today the world said goodbye to a true visionary who changed the face of modern computing, and took a niche product brand and turned it into an international household name. Steve Jobs will be greatly missed.
I attended the annual London Tattoo Convention over the weekend, and snapped quite a few shots of all the decorated people there. This man was doing traditional hand-tapped tribal tattooing.
