Published Update

If you’re in the UK, you’re most likely enjoying your 4 day weekend. For me? There’s still some work involved, but that’s how I like it. Here’s an update of my work in the press. Very happy to have shot a Godsized poster for their latest trip to Germany. The shoot, was at times, beyond hilarious! I must share some of the out-take pics with you all. The poster is currently printed and sold at A2 size. There’s also postcard sized stickers available. Then there’s the pic spread for Terrorizer Magazine feature ‘Hard of Hearing’, with Killswitch Engage and Trivium just before their show in London. You can see from the pics it was also rather entertaining when the photo shoot part gets mentioned! Various live and random pics of Therion, Arcturus, Iced Earth, Orange Goblin, Matt Harvey (eating a dog called Widget?!) and Killswitch Engage beating up the Terrorizer Features Editor – Tom – with the help of Trivium (Adam D pulling Tom’s hair is just brilliant, as he asked him first if he could do it!)

They were all quite happy despite not liking their pictures taken, just like many guys in bands I work with. They also joked about how all their promo pictures seem to be around or near a bar. After a couple of semi-serious poses I asked them to do something funny. The only thing they could come up with was to “punch Joe in the face!” Ben is a towering 6ft 4 (at least), but a very friendly guy with it. And yes, I would have needed a step ladder to speak to him at eye level. This is not a Marie’s eye view, but you get the idea on height ;) Oh yeah, In case you were wondering about the killer shirt Ben is wearing, it’s the latest SCA shirt […]
