Portraits of Drake McElroy

Last year in Madrid, while out for the Red Bull X-Fighters in Madrid, I photographed a few portraits of Drake McElroy.

Drake is super nice and this was a great pleasure for me because I got really into dirt-bikes back in the day when I saw him ride in old videos. He’s got the “sweetest” riding style and seems to have more fun on a bike than most people have now … it’s definitely in his blood.

Besides riding, Drake is one of the head judges for Red Bull X-Fighters and used to present an awesome show called Drakes Passage … you can watch these online still so make sure to do that.

These are just two of the shots that I took but I’m really happy with the entire set. Hopefully it’s not the last time I get to work with him.

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 …

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 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.

Arizona BTS

A few weeks ago I worked with the super nice guys from Arizona who were out on tour from Belgium. I shot a bunch of new promo images for them and they posted a photo on Instagram of us working so I thought it would be good to get that up along with one of the images that resulted from that scene.

Good guys … look them up!

Move Like A Sinner SA Tour

My friends in What Now have just announced a really cool tour in South Africa which is going down in September. They used one of my photos for the flyer.

Make sure to get to one of their shows if you can and party with them.

Bridges Of Paris BTS

I’ve been shooting a lot lately and really battling to keep up with posting images but I got sent this behind-the-scene photo of myself prepping gear on a shoot with Bridges Of Paris a few months back. The guys are super nice and they’re really doing something unique so make sure to look them up. This is a photo of the set and then a photo that I shot of the guys on the set. We found out that in 1888, Jack The Ripper’s first victim Martha Tabram was murdered in the same street, Gunthorpe Street, London. Crazy.

Goldie Thorn BTS

A few months ago I worked with a pop duo, Goldie Thorn, on some new imagery to accommodate the launch of their new EP that they’d been working hard on. It was an absolute pleasure working with them in studio and I feel that we pulled off the vision that we had in mind.

This is a behind-the-scene shot of our setup and then one of the images that I shot from the day that I really like.

Look them up … good pop sounds from another planet.

Fraser Taylor

I’ve worked with Young Guns and the guys are always super nice. I spent some time hanging with them a few months back and shot this of Fraser on the way to a signing they were doing.

Bear in Morden Hall Park

My buddy, Brendan, made a bear costume for a personal project we are working on and I thought it would be a good idea to take it out of storage when it snowed a few weeks ago. We headed to Morden Hall Park SUPER early in the morning to play a bit. The few people walking through the park to work thought we were mental.
