Adam Jenkins Portraits

A few months ago I shot some lifestyle portraits with my friend Adam Jenkins. He’s a great drummer for a band called “What Now“, longboard-rider, photography enthusiast and all round fun guy to be around so I wanted to capture some of that in a few photos.

These are them …

Finding Sugar Man … Again

I grew up, back in the day, with my parents listening to Rodriguez which resulted in me being a fan of his work … I’ve worked with him a few times over the years, since 2001, and it’s amazing to see him do what he does. A great documentary came out in 2012 called “Searching For Sugar Man” which explains the journey he’s been on and it’s definitely worth watching.

These are just a few shots I took the other night in Hammersmith and you can see more HERE.

Colt 45 Interview

My friends in Colt 45 have been getting a lot of press lately and it’s well deserved. I just got sent this interview that they did with The Guided Mags and two of my photographs were used from the promo shoot I did with them recently. I love the way this looks. You can read the interview HERE.

Young Guns sign to Virgin EMI

My friends in Young Guns have just signed to Virgin EMI which is super well deserved. The guys got me down to photograph the signing for them and one of the photos was used in the announcement about it in this weeks Music Week. It’s obviously not my most “technical” photograph but it was really great to be apart of this with them as I’ve worked with them a bunch since the start.

Well done boys!

Ziey photo shoot BTS

A few weeks ago I had a photo shoot with Ziey for new press images to support the latest stuff he’s been working on. It was really good spending time together and exploring new parts of the city together to find locations.

Patrick from Hot Money took a shot of us working so I thought I would post up the shot along with one of the actual photos that I took at that moment.

Ziey has just released a new video so take a moment to give it a view / listen.

Our crazy “Machine”

Pretty much 8 months ago, I spent a weekend locked inside a dirty, dusty and cold warehouse making a music video for my friends in What Now. We worked the entire weekend without sleep because we had to build the set, shoot the video and clean up before the warehouse was being used again on Monday so that we could save money.

During the time we smashed up 4 pianos, 3 organs, 2 drum kits, 2 violins, 2 keyboards, 3 guitars, radios, patch-bays, microphones, fans, speakers and a bunch of other stuff only to put them back together to construct our own “machine”. We had a lot of fun and only suffered a few injuries, including one drill to the head, but it was definitely one of the funnest shoots I’ve worked on (with Tyron Layley, Adam Jenkins, Ryan Morris, Brendan Monteiro and Ryan Prout).

I shot a few stills during the time but haven’t looked at them until now only because I found it really hard to capture what we had created … these are my favourites.

Colt 45 acoustic for Front Mag

My buddies in Colt 45 did an acoustic track exclusively for the guys over at Front Magazine and it’s definitely work checking out.

They used a teaser image from our shoot together a few days back.

The Blackout – Final Party Tour (Take 2)

My friends in The Blackout had to, unfortunately, reschedule their recent tour but have just announced the new dates and it’s definitely going to be a good party. The photo on the poster is made up of some individual portraits I shot with the guys that I really like. Make a plan to get to a show of theirs if you can.

Photo shoot with Colt 45

Today I photographed some new promo images with the guys from Colt 45 for their label Visible Noise. These will be released really soon and I am excited because it was a great shoot with the guys. I’m a big fan of their music and they’re super nice guys so it was an absolute pleasure catching up and working together.

Thought I would post up these 2 behind-the-scene photos that they posted on Instagram today which show me working.

Look them up … they’re going to be everywhere soon.

Photo shoot with Audiogold

Today I had a promotional photo shoot with the guys (and lady) of the band Audiogold. We shot in Highgate Wood and it was quite chilly out but I had a really good time and think that we got some great shots which I will be editing later this week.

These photos were posted by the band on their Instagram account so I thought I would share them because it’s always hard for me to shoot my own behind-the-scenes photographs.
