LIVE! Coheed + Cambria and Arcane Roots

Back in November, I was commissioned to shoot Coheed and Cambria for Team Rock’s Prog magazine. Arcane Roots were supporting, and it was a great show. I’ve always followed Coheed, so it was nice to be able to shoot them for a full page piece in Prog. I remember doing a work experience placement at NME magazine when I was 15 or 16, and sifting through press releases in the mail bag, listening to the CDs and sorting through the printed photographs (which seems so archaic now everything is done by email!) Coheed and Cambria’s press campaign for their debut album ‘Second Stage Turbine Blade’ was amongst the hundreds of CDs, I was a fan of it straight away!

 

Check out my photos from the show below, and of the magazine’s review too!

LIVE: The Temperance Movement

It’s been a busy weekend of gigs! On Saturday, I was shooting Coheed + Cambria for TeamRock, and then last night I was up in Camden for The Temperance Movement’s show. I’ve been listening to TTM’s debut album a lot, it was awesome to see them live. They put on a really energetic show and the crowd was packed out – even Jimmy Page was there..!

Support came from Joshua Jackson, who I wasn’t familiar with before, but comes recommended after yesterday’s performance.

LIVE! Jessie J at The Brighton Centre

Last week, I was looking forward to shooting Jessie J’s second night (07th November 2013) at The Brighton Centre for XYZ magazine. Normally, when shooting for a publication you’re only allowed to photograph the first three songs so that you’re not annoying the audience for the whole show. That afternoon, however, I got a phone call from Jessie J’s management. They wanted to commission me to shoot the whole show! I was given an AAA pass and the run of the entire venue.

The show’s production was awesome: waterfall pyrotechnics and lasers and canon streamers. Jessie J put on a great performance; I thought I’d only recognise a couple of songs, but found myself singing along to most of them. I’m used to shooting much smaller shows, so this was a great opportunity to work at a bigger venue with a great client. Jessie moves around a LOT on stage, so it was a fun challenge to focus at 2.8 at 200mm, but overall I’m pleased with the final photographs. The show was split into five parts and she had a different outfit for each part, which made it really hard to narrow down my favourite photos!

Support came from Lawson and Olivia Somerlyn. You can see some of the photographs I took of them HERE.
