PORTRAIT: Vanessa Tait

Vanessa contacted me a few weeks back about doing some creative shoots. Since the weather’s a bit unpredictable at the moment, I invited her to my home studio for a quick test shoot so we’d have chance to meet and have a chat. We took a few photos and I was really pleased with them, so I’ve edited a few 🙂

LIVE! 5ive

On Monday, I was back at The Brighton Centre to photograph 90s boyband 5ive on one of the first dates of their reunion tour. Now there’s only four of them but they put on a great show and everyone was dancing..! I had to shoot mostly from front of house but managed to get into the photo pit for two songs in the middle of their set. Check out some of the photos below..

POTRAIT: The Modern Antiquarian

Sometime earlier this year, late one Friday night, I was getting the bus home and met Jeremy. We talked a lot about music and stayed in touch ever since, sharing song recommendations and upcoming gigs. Anyway, I always thought it’d be cool to photograph him, so when he mentioned about collecting books I decided that’d be the perfect setting to shoot him at. So, when he had a day off work, we headed over to A & Y Cumming in Lewes and spent a couple of hours taking photos.

Funnily enough, rooting amongst the hundreds of old books we came across ‘Vitalogy’, a medical book that would’ve otherwise held no interest to either of us. But we both recognised the cover of the book straight away as it had been used as a cover for Pearl Jam’s third studio album. Of course, we had to include that book in a few shots!
